my fvwm screenshots

Hi all,

( sorry for my very bad english … :confused: speak french )

I’m a KDE user ( since I start linux with mandrake 9 [mandriva] )… I discover fvwm-crystal last week …
It’s wonderful what you can do with fvwm :open_mouth:

So I decide to try it … this is the result after some hours of work.

desktop : a little panel ( popup menu ) / a mediabar ( for amarok ) / clock
conky and stalonetray / a pager (4*4)x4

MPlayer / Virtualbox ( winXP :smiley: ) / FvwmConsole (mrxvt)

When It’s more “clean” , I post the config …


PS: Hello from belgium … :smiley:

Hi ,

Some change … :smiley:

Move pager to bottom , new panel ( halt, logout, lock ) on left side
New “osx” bar (bigger icons) and split mediabar / clock

thank you!

Thank you for porting it. It really look great. I have a questions though, where do you set the buttons in stalonetray? I looked in the rc files and scripts but I couldn’t find it.

Thanks again for the great job.

Oh I found it under folder themes. Sorry, my mistake. Thanks again for this terrific example that is helping me a lot.
