French fvwm configuration

Hi. I remember seeing a French fvwm configuration in which windows were minimised to small boxes on the desktop, each one a miniature version of the original window.

This impressed me greatly, but sadly neither my French nor my knowledge of FVWM was good enough to enable me to adapt it to my personal use.

Does anyone know how that effect could be accomplished in FVWM?

Thanks in advance,

Colonel Panic .

Thanks :slight_smile: I found this thread;


I immediately see that I’ve got too early a version of fvwm
(2.4.x); I’ll install 2.5.x later on before having a go at this.
