I have a question about thumbnailing a window.
The first function for this that I saw was that from taviso: http://dev.gentoo.org/~taviso/fvwm2rc.html. It seemed to work, but was a bit slow.
Then I found the one from sasha http://fvwm.lair.be/viewtopic.php?t=190 which seemed to be a good alternative. I’m using this one now. (also saw a modified version of this one on PEM’s site)
Now I found another one, which I didn’t try, this one: http://fvwm.lair.be/viewtopic.php?t=349.
It’s all getting a bit cloudy here…
Nick wrote about some of his advantages compared to taviso’s script. Is there a difference between the script of Nick and the script of sasha that I should be aware of? which one of the 2 should I use? or are there any onter scripts for this that I missed?
The reason I ask this is because my system isn’t the fastest one (500MHz) so the speed of the script is important. I don’t want minimizing (thumbnailing) a window to take 2-3 seconds.
Would it make a difference if I got rid of the icon on the thumbnail?
(I’m using fvwm to have a lightweight wm)
