Configurations for fvwm2


My current main config, visually close to the built-in FVWM2 defaults but with plenty of my own tweaks under the hood. It has so far lasted longer than most, perhaps because of how the visual blandness really allows me to focus on things other than how my window decorations look. Let's hope it stays that way.


A somewhat 4DWM-inspired config for my Raspberry Pi 3B+.

Extended Slack

Built on the classic config below, but with less bland title bars and a few other twists. This config file is heavily commented, which might be useful since fvwm can be a bit tricky to configure.

A classic config

The decorations and colours exactly match those used in the config supplied with Slackware 2.0 in 1994. It was my first encounter with fvwm and although I've tried others, it's still my window manager of choice.

A 4Dwm-like fvwm2 config

I've always loved Silicon Graphics machines and the look of their Indigo Magic/4Dwm desktop. This is a small set of files and a configuration to make FVWM2 look not completely unlike 4Dwm, complete with a Toolchest.
