Hi guys! This is my first post here… I’m really
excited because I’m entering the new (for me) FVWM world. I’ve been using
Linux for years and Gentoo as my main and only OS since 2008. I’ve been a KDE
fan, but I can’t stand anymore all the compilation time, qt libraries and all
the kde packages are terrible with a single core cpu.
So I decided to try this FVWM as I saw fantastic screenshots over the net.
First it seemed to be very hard to configure but with the documentation, some
config examples and many hours of time, I have to say it’s not that difficult (in general).
Here I would like to know your experiences about the WM Usability, meaning
mouse and key binding and focus policies, since I’ve started a new config from
scratch and this is the more important part for me, the graphic and style can follow
I’ve been thinking about a configuration like this:
Alt+Tab builtin behaviour
Ctrl+Right/Left/Up/Down navigation through Virtual Desktops
Alt+E File Browser
Alt+D Minimize All Windows
Tell me what you guys think about it and what bindings/focus you you use to
get the best usability and speed.
I hope this is the right section (no question here, just a discussion) and that it’s not a duplicate post (I searched on the forum first).
