Would you use the fluid layout option?
- Yes, I have an elaborate setup and multiple boxes, with different resolutions
- No, I’ll change everything by hand every time I need it
I started my FVWM config.
It looks great, it feels great (thanks Voider and 6thpink ).
One thing which I believe FVWM is lacking: fluid layout. What do I mean by “fluid”? Like in a website: make this table cell 10% of the screen witdh. Instead of 20 pixels. One thing that a good FVWM config feels like: rigid - if you change the resolution, everything moves out-of-order…
I know that this would mean slowing down FVWM, but maybe cacheing the results of the conversions: 10% x 1024px = 103px somewhere could help.
I don’t know if this is simple, or even possible, but a top notch WM like FVWM would surely deserve something like this…
If I managed somehow to miss the part of the man which allows me to do something like this, I’m sorry. I might mention that I’m quite conservative as to my configs, and I prefer to use only the builtin FVWM functionality, and very few Perl/… script, as they tend to slow everything down
I wonder what a FVWM dev would make out of this
