FvwmIconMan swallowed by FvwmButtons

Postby geterdone » Sat Mar 01, 2014 6:19 pm


I have FvwmIconMan which is swallowed by FvwmButtons, and find that every now and then the IconMan seems to "disappear" from the FvwmButton, meaning the button that swallowed FvwmIconMan is just empty. I can see that the IconMan is still running (via 'top' say), but it just doesn't show up. Restarting Fvwm "fixes" the problem. I run Fvwm on 3 different computers, and this seems to happen say once every couple of weeks, but the logs don't show anything obvious and I have been unable to pin point what's going on. Here is the relevant configs:

Code: Select all

DestroyFunc StartFunction
AddToFunc StartFunction
+ I Module FvwmIconMan AppIconMan
+ I Module FvwmButtons ButtonsTopBar

Style AppIconMan !Title, Sticky, StaysOnTop, WindowListSkip, StaysOnTop, NeverFocus, !Icon ,!Handles, !Borders

*ButtonsTopBar: Geometry $[vp.width]x$[FVWM_BASE_STRUTS_TOP]+0+0

*ButtonsTopBar: ($[FVWM_BUTTONS_WIDTH_ICONMAN]x1, Swallow (SwallowNew) AppIconMan)

Here is the fvwm version i am using:
