Playing youtube in fvwm?


I have a problem with Fvwm - when I play youtube, and press fullscreen, Firefox opens new window which is 100x100px. On my Debian/KDE box, when I do the same thing, full screen window opens with progress bar and controls on the bottom. What is the problem with Fvwm? Someone else with the same issue?

Works fine here – I suspect you have some FvwmEvent condition overriding this. Please use a pastebin and put your config in it.

You’re right, I have this in my config:

[code]DestroyModuleConfig FvwmEvent: *
*FvwmEvent: deiconify DeThumbnail

DestroyModuleConfig FvwmEvent: *
*FvwmEvent: Cmd Function
*FvwmEvent: new_page CurrentPageFocusFunc
*FvwmEvent: new_desk CurrentPageFocusFunc
*FvwmEvent: destroy_window CurrentPageFocusFunc
*FvwmEvent: focus_change MarkWindowAsActiveFunc

I’ll try to remove these two “DestroyModuleConfig FvwmEvent: *”…

On the face of it, that probably won’t be affecting your issue — can you just make available your config, please?

OK I’ve got it.

Problem is not the Fvwm, but 64bit Firefox/nspluginwrapper :frowning:

I’m going back to 32bit, I can’t take it anymore.

I had the same problem on a Debian-Lenny-64-bit-System with the original Debian-fvwm.deb.
When i compiled fvwm from the actual snapshot, this problem was solved.

Only when i have two screens, the problem is back again… :frowning:
New thread for that???

The developers made a good job, but only for one-screen-solutions…


There’s a similar report of this on the Gentoo forums for instance: … -fvwm.html

But other than just stating The Bleeding Obvious, what was the point of this post, I wonder? Especially coming from someone whose first post this is.
