    Looking at the partioal Config file for Fvwm; I have the following question?
    as in zensite says

1.How Fvwm make a distinction between these function; in one function we tell fvwm to iconify on double click and on the other to shade on the double click.
As we only have on active windows at each moment and one type of single or double click you see my dilema here!!!

You have to bind each function to a mouse binding as described on the next page of zensite ‘Bindings’. Here you find these functions again:

The syntax for mouse bindings]
Button Context Modifier Function
[/code]and for key bindings]
Keyname Context Modifier Function
From my config here’s a summary for what you use which shortcut and where]#=======================================================================

6.1 Mouse


Handle some Mouse bindings now…

Recall that mouse formats look like this:

Thanks A lot to answer
What is the Meta key?
ESC or ALT or I don’t have the meta key?

and also could You give your fvwm2rc or at least the rest related to the key bindings.
the statements in your config is very informative.

It is the ALT key.
