A small video with xvidcap.

Perhaps someone can try on system Bsd.

long time agot there was some french site called linuxshot.org (it still exist but its noe the same site with old screenshots), currently it has only 1 FVWM screen and very common I must say, but the old linuxshot.org contained such great FVWM configs that none of the other WMs or DEs could comapre with them

Even Mac OS X or E17 looked poor comparing to that configs.

Also arsen.gentoo.pl has some nice setups too, also FVWM forums has lots of nice FVWM configs.

are those really screenshots of fvwm? <surprised>
they look nothing like the original fvwm look which is inspired by mwm(motif wm) and cde.

FVWM is the king of all other WMs, you can turn it into whatever you want, fluxbox, kwin, pekwm, its just matter of time and FVWM configuration, you can tune EVERYTHING, but it takes time and knowledge.

I'm surprised too, not really a WM nut but this is rather nice looking. Gotta try it out soon!

Stable release is 2.4.20, 2.4.0 was released Jul 3rd, 2001.

The xenocara (-current) release is 2.2.5
Code:
$ fvwm -version
[FVWM][main]:  Fvwm Version 2.2.5 compiled on Mar  4 2008 at 22:23:25
There is a fvwm2 2.4.19 available as port/package.

So: do not compare features.
are those really screenshots of fvwm? Yes, from 2.4.* or 2.5.*

the first screen shot in the tread I find somewhat impressive compared to a lot of the more typical (if there are any) FVWM screens I've seen in passing, but the menu fonts are leaving to be desired imho.


I've never used FVWM and have, generally turned my noise up at many TWM related window managers -- during the brief time I used TWM during my 'wm collector' spell, I really hated it !!!


I've been interested in replacing KDE (again) for some time now. So after reading this thread I think I'll give FVWM 1.24r or 2.x a try and see how long it takes to corrupt it into my work flow ^_^.

I don't have a lot of time these days for configuring things but hey, family gets in the way of my coding anyway... :-)


Cheers


If any thing tunes up, I'll post a screen in the fbsd screen shots thread.

FVWM forums is great place if you seek for nice configs:
http://fvwm.lair.be

Some nice themes that I have found there:

Love FVWM myself, very configurable and easy to use.

Personally, I don't have the patience to deal with fvwm. It takes time to configure. I just use KDE. It's easy to install and use, and the default look, at least in 4.1 Beta 1, is quite nice.

Does menumaker work well with fvwm? I used it with icewm (which I'm using now), and it really is nice.
