Where is fvwm installed?

I have looked in all the root folder but cannot find the fvwm installation anywhere. Where is it installed per default?

I am looking for the $[fvwm_scrpt] directory because I would like to add the debian standard menu to the root menu.

Since you’re using Debian:

dpkg -L fvwm

Will tell you where everything goes. However, if you just want to add the Debian menu to your root menu, then you need to edit your .fvwm2rc file such that you have:

Read /etc/X11/fvwm/menudefs.hook

Somewhere in your file, and then to your root menu, add:

Popup /Debian

Ok I just did dpkg -L fvwm but it impossible to get an overview because the list is way yo long. But it seems that fvwm is installed almost everywhere not like other programs that usually is located in one dir in :

/usr/local/share/

Pipe the output to a pager:

dpkg -L fvwm | more

Thank you!

Regarding the Debian menu. I have writtin the following in my .fvwm2rc file:

Read /ect/X11/fvwm/menudefs.hook

And in my Root menu I have in the bottom added:

DestroyMenu MenuFvwmRoot
AddToMenu MenuFvwmRoot “Root Menu” Title

  •                   "&1. XTerm"             Exec exec xterm
    
  •                   "&2. Rxvt"              Exec exec rxvt
    
  •                   ""              Nop
    
  •                   "&R. Remote Logins"     Popup MenuFvwmLogins
    
  •                   ""              Nop
    
  •                   "&U. Utilities"         Popup MenuFvwmUtilities
    
  •                   ""              Nop
    
  •                   "&M. Fvwm Modules"      Popup MenuFvwmModules
    
  •                   "&W. Fvwm Window Ops"   Popup MenuFvwmWindowOps
    
  •                   "&S. Fvwm Config Ops"   Popup MenuFvwmConfig
    
  •                   ""              Nop
    
  •                   "&F. Refresh Screen"   Refresh
    
  •                   "&C. Recapture Screen" Recapture
    
  •                   ""              Nop
    
  •                   "&X. Exit Fvwm" Popup MenuFvwmQuitVerify
    
  •   	"&Y. Popup/Debian
    

I get an entry in the root menu called “Popup/Debian” but there is nothing in it.

What am I missing??

Look at your typing, you have:

Popup/Debian

But you need a space between them, so change it to:

Popup /Debian

I must be an imbiceile, I have changed it to what you said but it is still not working:

Read /ect/X11/fvwm/menudefs.hook

DestroyMenu MenuFvwmRoot
AddToMenu MenuFvwmRoot “Root Menu” Title

  •   "&Y. Popup /Debian

I confused Fuction for title, it now works:

  •   	"&Y. Debian"		     Popup /Debian
    

Thanks again for your help!
