Warnings of FVWM at the end of an Xorg session

At the end of an Xorg session there are two warnings about FVWM.

cat: /root/.Xauthority: Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden
[FVWM][Read]: <<ERROR>> file '/usr/share/fvwm/ConfigFvwmDefaults' not found
[FVWM][get_menu_options]: <<ERROR>> invalid rectangle geometry
X connection to :0.0 broken (explicit kill or server shutdown).


I think the second warning is a mistake in my system.fvwmrc2

#Feste Position der FvwmTaskBar am unteren Rand des Bildes
*FvwmTaskBar: Geometry +0-0
*FvwmTaskBar: AutoStick

Is this the mistake and how can i improve it ?

How did you install FVWM? Only this file is key to FVWM’s starting, as it defines a set of functions and global bindings which are useful. The fact that FVWM can’t find it suggests your FVWM install is broken somehow.

Probably the menu definition doesn’t exist.

No, the problem is all with the missing ConfigFvwmDefaults file. Fix your FVWM install.

OK, so I configure the sources of fvwm on Debian Lenny. But ‘make’ breaks with the following messages

make  all-recursive

What is wrong ? :cry:

Can you translate: “Datei oder Verzeichnis nicht gefunden”? I do not speak German.

I got a translation. You will need to install the libxt-dev package.

:smiley: It is okay.
Thank you for help :laughing:
