I’ve read that in the beginner guides already, so I already read that. But that still doesn’t help me. It’s loading a config file that I don’t know where it is. And since it would probably be labeled something .fvwm it won’t appear when i’m looking in a file manager. I want to either delete this config that it’s loading or edit it to my liking. The only thing is that i don’t know the name of the file or which directory it is in. Is there a command i can run in fvwm that will tell me the config file it is currently using (name and directory). By the way i’m running gentoo.
That’s the most in-depth post I’ve ever written about startup on these forums. Note that depending on your symptoms, FVWM will ALWAYS read in ConfigFvwmDefaults – which is found in $(fvwm-config -d). Which version of FVWM are you running?
Sorry if it wasn’t clear in my original post. But all i really was wondering is how to see what files are marked as hidden. Using “ls -a”.
It turns out that for my user it was loading a config from the directory $HOME/.fvwm/config. Thanks to enabling hidden files in my file manager i was able to see that this file existed. The config that i have been tweeking was in the directory $HOME/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc.
Thanks for all the help. It seems to be all the simple “easy” things that are the hardest. But now i’m on the right track.
