Hi. I’ve come here because i wanted to know if anyone else has went on a FVWM bender when starting to use it.
I’m obsessed with customization which is why I initially went for KDE plasma as my main desktop because of its user-friendliness and generous style settings. I love it mostly, but sometimes I get fed up with long start times, panels can be annoying with padding, can be buggy etc… which is why I’ve started tinkering with Fvwm (specifically Crystal, which is a nice fail-safe and very pretty) and now I can’t stop. I’ve stayed up til near sunrise for the past few days straight (speak of the devil, there’s the sun now…) just playing with the config file. You get such a ridiculous amount of control, and it’s so fast compared to a full desktop environment like kde.
I’m very new to this type of computing–just started using Kubuntu last summer after graduating college–so I’m sure these things seem matter-of-fact to other forum users but every time I discover something new like this it takes over my life for a good chunk of time.
I’ve been fighting proprietary operating systems my whole life for control over the look and feel of the machine, so I can’t even describe how it feels to use Fvwm. It really feels like the computer is a tool instead of a product… what a concept. I wonder if anyone else gets(or got in the past) this sublime feeling from editing a config file (LOL) I should sleep now…
