FvwmIconMan: Resolution desk??

I have made the following option:

FvwmIconMan: Resolution desk

That way it should only be windows on the current desktop that is shown.

But i does not work. All windows are shown on all desktops.

I have the following option under Dekstop:

DeskTopSize 2x2
Key Left A CM2 Scroll -100 0
Key Right A CM2 Scroll +100 +0
Key Up A CM2 Scroll +0 -100
Key Down A CM2 Scroll +0 +100

Are you sure you haven’t got the difference between a page and a desk confused? Essentially, a desk is a container [1] for pages. So if you have:

DesktopSize 2x2

That will give you one desk, with four pages in it. Like this:

|         |          |
|      1 |   2     |
|         |          |
|      3 |    4    |

Excuse the diagram. But you can see that the outer-square, is essentially your desk, and the numbered squares are pages. Note that you can have as many desks as you like. So if you have:

FvwmIconMan: Resolution desk

In FvwmIconMan, that would list all windows on pages 1,2,3,4. For each desk you might have. Conversely, if you had said:

FvwmIconMan: Resolution page

That would have listed just the window on the page that you were currently on. You can also tell FvwmIconMan to ignore windows, either with the implicit “UseSkipList” option to it, or by explicitly telling FvwmIconMan which windows to ignore. But that’s just an aside.

[1] Not quite true, but it will suffice for this explanation.

Ok I have now changed it to “page”,but if i minimized a window on page 1, it is shown as minimized on all the other pages as well.

Resolution seems to only be working for windows that are NOT minimized.

Yes, this is how it is supposed to work. Why would it not work like that?

That’s incorrect.

– Thomas Adam

Well a minimized window on page 1 should not be shown as minimized on page 2,3 or 4. I should only belong to page 1.

OK. That’s right, assuming the resolution is set to “page”. If the window is shown on other pages, despite the window not being on that page, then it would indeed be a little odd. Is this specific window “sticky”?

– Thomas Adam

Its the same problem with all windows: xterm, konqueror, knode etc.

I have not made any specific “sticky” rules for any windows…AFAIK:
