This is new, and is very configurable without having to touch a single line of code. Just use the menu to customize your fvwm. There is support to customize decorations, fonts, colorsets, wallpapers, menus and panels from within a single menu. More features are planned.
It is still young and I have only one iconset (and lacky, but I will improve it, I swear). Fonts, are included in the package.
Features along with a lot of other info can be found in the README file, but here you have a list:
** FEATURES ** * Configure wallpapers, decorations, colorsets, fonts, panels, icons and menustyles with just one click. * Transparent and solid themes. * An alt-f2 launcher made out of an rxvt, no gtk, no qt, no nada. Very light but much more functional than one of these fancy command launchers, because you get all the benefits of bash. * 7 different panel modes, the panelized stuff goes out in an animated fashion. Three big panels, three thing ones, one text mode ultra-thin panel and also one config for no panels at all. * A FvwmScript clock. Also themed by the menu colorsets and fonts. Also included are applets to control the master volume, watch the temperature of your micro, and control xmms. * Buttons in the title to close, WindowList, minimize and maximize. Midle click in close destroys the window (I could not live without this), right in maximize maximizes height, middle maximizes weight. This behaviour is defined in the deco, so, if you dont like it, edit any deco under ~/.fvwm/decorations/ and save it with another name, it will automatically be shown in the configuration menu. * Fancy useless desktop thumbnails (yes, fast imlib2 based thumbnailing) and not less useless wallpaper thumbnails in the menus. * Six pages, 3x2, in one desktop. * Win key is used in most bindings. Ctrl-alt-z fast restart. * Window options menu and Exit Form when middle click the fvwm logo. * Shade wins with wheel in the title. A second wheel can be used to resize the window (over the title also). * FvwmForm-QV to exit, restart and xlock for the lock function. Win+l also locks the screen. * Middle click into an app in iconman goes to it (even if it is into any other page. Left maximizes and minimizes, right shows the window menu. * SloppyFocus, the viewport automatically moves when you reach the screen edge, and my value for that property is pretty sensible, I like it that way. * Full icon hover/pressed state support in the FvwmButtons bar. * Device applets, lclick opens in rox, middle in mc, and right opens menu. * Right click menu for the device applets contains a list of players, and an option to edit the players links folder and the icons for those. So, adding a new element to that menu is just a matter of dropping some links into a rox window. Easier way ever to configure fvwm ;) * Default icon set made out of the excelloent RAD.E8 iconset (Graphitte).
There are three different panels. Fot now are only mods of the main one. I use the blue-flat colorset, with the clean-style panel, the comic font, the waiting… wallpapers, the right aligned menu and the only available icon set. To add a colorset, menu or some other thing is very easy, just put the .panel, .cs, ft, .ms or whatever file in the right directory and the file will appear in the menu. Surely I miss something… well, some screenies (gimp’ed to 800x600 to save some space and bandwidth).
EDIT: THE IMAGES SEEMS TO BE PROBLEMATIC, SO i JUST PUT HERE THE LINKS INSTEAD OF THE IMG’s.
EDIT: You can find some screeinies online on the posts below.
These are only a few combinations, there are a lot more, and it is very easy to extend this to use more fonts, or colorsets or whatever.

Please, let me know what do you think. This is my first really consistent config. Still there is too much work to do but this is pretty usable and very configurable at least. Feedback, bugreports, flames and wtf’s are all wellcome.
