Problem with FvwmAnimate and NoIcon windows


After reading the manual page (yes i did it ! :wink: ), i understood that if i use the style: “Style * NoIcon” and an IconManager then i must use: *FvwmIconMan: NoIconAction “SendToModule FvwmAnimate animate” to have animations when i iconify windows.
So, that’s what i did but i have no animation when iconifying but only when i deiconify from the IconManager.
I use Fvwm 2.5.16 but i have reproduced the problem with 2.5.14 and on two differents machines. I’ve tried to send the commands directly in FvwmConsole but that’s the same result.

This is some parts of my configuration, do you see anything wrong ?

Thanks !


You probably need to do it the other way around when iconifying windows – i.e. use FvwmEvent:

DestroyModuleConfig foo:*
*foo: iconify “SendToModule FvwmAnimate …”

Module FvwmEvent foo[/code]

Good idea ! but this doesn’t work either… :frowning:
