Where do you find you pixmaps that is used for the FvwmIconman and FvwmButtons?
Some of the configs that I have tried has some really nice pimaps for these modules but how do I make them?
I have tried to use the gradient tool in photoshop to make some effects but it does not look well when I apply them to the FvwmButtons and the FvwmIconMan (it seems that you should be very cautions about using white colors and darker colors).
Any hints appreciated!
Fvwm supports 2 types of image files: xpm’s and png’s.
I’ve understood that pixmap is a xpm file, you can make those with a text editor. Try saving a small picture in Gimp as xpm, for instance, and edit with a text editor the resulting file to see what I mean. Or for better “commented” xpm’s, take a look at the icons that come with fvwm.
Then there are png’s, which look nicer as icons. I won’t go into as to why.
I’d guess you are after png icons. You can find them from this forum and gnome-/kde-/look.org and such (and ofcourse, from the wm-icons.sf.net)
You might want fvwm to make the gradients for you instead.
for instance. Also in the wiki but it seems it got moved somewhere and I can’t find it right now.
