I am facing the problem that my fvwm 2.5.10 - shipped with 64bit Suse 9.2 - won’t allow me to resize, move or maximize certain windows. It depends on what application the window belongs to: affected are e.g. acroread, the complete openoffice suite, programs running under wine emulation, … Once the window is placed, there is no resizing or moving it, the close/maximize buttons are missing in the title bar, and the corresponding options in the window menu are unaccessible. Most other programs like xemacs, mozilla, gv, etc do just fine.
I tried several style options like VariableSize, VariableUSSize, VariablePPosition, VariablePSize, HintOverride, NoPPosition, but it has no effect. The .fvwm2rc is years old and has always been ok yet. Seems to be a rare ploblem, since I couldn’t find any hints on the web yet… Somebody knows what’s going on here?
For all who may face the same problem:
after stripping down my .fvwm2rc step by step I found that I need to comment out the following line: #Style “*” MWMFunctions, MWMDecor, HintOverride
and it works.
