3D Relief Width

It seems that choosing MwmBorder or FvwmBorder determines how title bar buttons and the relief looks but even the MwmBorder is a little too thick for my liking. I can’t seem to find in the manual where I can adjust the width or depth of how the 3D relief looks.Ideally I’m looking for a 1 pixel wide shadow for the border and title buttons.

Please let me know if I’ve overlooked something from the manual.


Unfortunately after looking at the code it seems that most of how FVWM calculates relief width is static in the borders.c file. I was able achieve my goal by modifying the function border_fetch_mwm_layout with my desired relief width.

< ret_size_descr->w_hiout = 2;

  ret_size_descr->w_hiout = 1;

< ret_size_descr->sum = 3;

  ret_size_descr->sum = 2;

Now all looks good, really wish there was way to specify those parameters via a configuration file.
