FVWM basic config file

Manuel Solis Vazquez
Hello Misc,

I have read some post about getting along with the default WM, i mean
complaining about configuring it, saying that the man page its dificult and
stuff, and then saddly going to another WM.

I my OpenBSD era (from 60 to date) i was using cwm but wondering why they
say that Theo uses fvwm, so i wondered that maybe it is worth it to try.

So i attach my .fvwmrc and i hope that will help someone to start tweaking
it and get along with it and be happy with it.

I think that the config file is basic enough to start (for me it helped to
migrate from cwm) and has a good bindings that one might find useful as:
- Control + arrow navigation between pages
- Control + Meta + number to move window to page (i couldnt make it
dinamically so it could work if its more than 9 pages, sorry about that)
- Shift + Left/right to circulate focus between open windows (Like alt tab)
- Control + Meta + arrows to snap window to left, right, maximize and
iconify (that is my favorite)
- Meta + d  dmenu (pkg_add dmenu)
- Meta + i  screenshot ( pkg_add ImageMagick)
- Meta + x close window
- Control + Meta + p  power off
- Meta + t  make it transparent (pkg_add transset-df)
- Meta + m  move window
- It uses feh to set the wallpaper
- It uses conky for basic info
- It uses dmenu to fast start applications.

I am eager to share it here since it works for the fvwm in base 64, i
noticed that there are plenty config files online but they are meant for a
newer fvwm that is not in OpenBSD and i couldnt make it work, even i was
tempted to post a mail asking for Theo┬┤s config file but i had the
impression that the answer would be as fun and educational as always.

Again, i hope that it helps.

The default fvwm(1) is certainly not the best part of OpenBSD - the
code is old and crappy.

I can't speak for Theo, but the reason i'm using it is nothing more
and nothing less than that i don't want to bother configuring a
window manager.  If i have one complaint about the base fvwm(1) -
apart from the crappy code - it is that it is way too bloated and
has way too many features.  For that reason, even though i'm rarely
using .dot-files for any programs (except git, mutt, and ssh, which
don't work at all without a config file), this is one of the few
programs where i do have my own config file.  The point is to get
rid of all the horrible bloat in the default .fvwrc:

   $ grep -cv -e '^$' -e '^#' /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fvwm/.fvwmrc
  378
   $ grep -cv -e '^$' -e '^#' /home/schwarze/.fvwmrc              
  81

Yours,
  Ingo

Re: FVWM basic config file

Christopher Turkel
This configuration rocks, both of them. I love FVWM.

I think FVWM should dropped as the default WM, its old and clunky. I think
it should be twm.
