Hi everyone. I’ve just installed FVWM today and although I don’t have a full config for you, I’d like to share my Quake-style terminal and see what you think
Basically, I should have a X terminal window launch / pop up at the top half of my screen every time hit WinKey+Enter. It should be without decoration, on all pages/desktops, have no desktop iccon, not appear in the Alt+Tab menu, and must be manageable even if the window title changes.
Some caveats: it is a basic version, as I’m not into decorations, animations, transparency, etc. My config was inspired by this page.
Well, here is the screenshot: imgur.com/Xq1qioS
And here is my config:
[code]####### quake like terminal #######
Give quickterm state 1 so it can be found if title changes
- I Style quickterm State 1
Remove all decorations and make visible on all pages/desktops
- I Style quickterm !Title, !Handles, !Borders
- I Style quickterm Sticky
Disable desktop icons and remove from Alt+Tab list
- I Style quickterm NoIcon
- I Style quickterm WindowListSkip
If window with “State 1” already exists (un)iconify it
- I Next (State 1, CurrentDesk) Iconify Toggle
If no window has state 1, exec xterm
- I None (State 1, CurrentDesk) Exec exec xterm -T quickterm
Wait for quickterm to open, then apply the following
- I Wait quickterm
Set size, position and focus window
- I Next (State 1, CurrentDesk) ResizeMove 1024p 300p 0p 0p
- I Next (State 1, CurrentDesk) Raise
- I Next (State 1, CurrentDesk) Focus
Apply keybinding to toggle the quickterm on/off
Key Return A 4 start_quickterm
####### quake like terminal #######[/code]
A couple of random points:
I’ve tried putting all those style command on one line, but they seem to be ignored.
I’ve tried using “State 1” with my style commands, but haven’t got it working yet, so for now my style commands use “quickterm”.
Any comments are welcome:)
