I have a 1024x768 resolution. I am also very new to fvwm. Can you suggest a setup similar to Guli-Simply, but for a 1024x768 resolution. I cannot figure out how to convert the configs to 1024x768.

or clearlooks



Honestly you are better off writing your own. Then time it would take you or someone else to scale down someone else’s config would be alot and it can get frustrating. Nick Fortune wrote an awsome tutorial here http://fvwm.lair.be/viewtopic.php?t=188 I used when i first started and had a really good grasp on what was going on. Your not going to be able to figure everything out right away but atleast you’ll have both feet on the ground and beable to ask intelligable questions. I hope that all made sence (little tired) Heres another tutorial that is really go to


Also, when hopefully making own config, make good use of variables such as $[desk.width], $[desk.height], so there will be no need to manually change a config to work on different resolutions.

Taviso has a great .fvwm2rc file! I learned alot just reading his config:


You most likely mean $[vp.x] and $[vp.y] as opposed to the entire desk. I should point out that I have already discussed all of this with newpers via IRC last night. It seems my answer of: “doing it yourself is the best bet, given the current geometry offsets cannot easily be rectified by inserting $[vp.x] and $[vp.y]” is just not enough for one man… :stuck_out_tongue:

No, I did mean desk.height and desk.width, desktopsize 1x1 you see… :wink:
