Without any customization by anybody it is quite useless.
With reasonable customization by an initial ~/.fvwm2rc and some additions
by myself, it does for me:
- Add handles to the windows so i can move, resize, iconify them, and
make them "sticky" to the glass of the screen.
- Define meaning of mouse buttons.
- Set background and create a first xterm after startup of the X Window
- Provide FvwmPager by which i switch between the 8 pages of my
- Install FvwmButtons panel with FvwmPager, xclock, "Fvwm2" button with
a master menu (very rarely used by me), and a button that creates
xterms with bash sessions (often used).
- Define and perform my private definition of the MS-Windows keys
of my keybard:
Key Super_L A N RaiseLower
Key Super_R A N RaiseLower
- Refrain from annoying me with xterm icons with fully active shell dialog:
Style "XTerm" IconOverride
Style "XTerm" Icon display.xpm
The rest of graphical programs is started by shell comands in xterms:
Web browser, PDF reader, own programs ...
Have a nice day :)
