ok i’ very new to, well everything basicly, i have installed and can “startx”, i can access my university unix by ssh.
teacher told me use fvwm2 as window manager. so all i did was change the startxwin.bat line “run twm” to “run fvwm2”. when i run startxwin.bat it opens X with white window, with my username, nothing else!
when i type fvwm2, it says another WM is allready running!.
so what do i need to get fvwm2 working?
you probably already have fvwm running. By defualt there isn’t mush configuration. try clicking on the background, and if that brings up a menu go to the configurations/screenshot forum, and try to get yourself a good .fvwm2rc file.
thanks for reply, how should i be running?
by opening startxwin.bat or by cygwin.exe? and how i do i know fvwm2 is running? shouldnt some sort of “Menu” come up?
and how do i install a theme? too many questions in one post
