Submitted by Ploum. Ploum says: I like a clean desktop. I created a gradient for my fvwm menu and I called it "ocean". I used a blue gradient for the active titlebar and a grey gradient for inactive. I can easily switch between viewports with "alt+arrow". The icons are from wm-icons. You can see in the top left corner two tiny fvwm buttons. The first is to hide/unhide zinf, the audio player, the second is a "swallow" of my jabber status. Clicking on it hides/unhides the psi main window. I put xplanet in the backround with tracking of some satellites. (you can see ISS and XMM). On the right, this is gkrellm and a sticky transprent aterm in the bottom. Only 3 lines, it's just to launch some commands. When I minimize an application, the icon is sent to my vertical icon box, just under grkrellm, but I do it rarely. I prefer shading of windows, like the xterm at the top of the screen. I just discovered today the cool "Aqua" skin for GTK and the "Aqua" skin for phoenix, my favourite browser. I documented a lot my @fvwm2rc@ file, but in french... Yes, I hate taskbars and icons ! ;)

Submitted by Parv. Parv says: (fvwm 2.5.4) shows titles on bottom and on right hand side, sticky windows with and without title-bars, FvwmPager, and aterm with transparent background and tinting.

You can visit Parv's web site and see the configuration file. See also the annotated version of the screen shot.

Submitted by Olivier Chapuis. Two screen shots in a small screen (800x600). The first one all panels up, the second one all panels down and the TaskBar hidden. Panels are quite useful on such a screen. The "Window Maker FvwmButtons" has four panels that run only if I use it: this saves my battery.

Submitted by Mikhael Goikhman. This is a mix of different fvwm-themes components plus some additional commands in FvwmConsole. This screenshot shows new 2.5.x features like transparent FvwmPager in the upper left, png icons from wm-icons package, tinted transparent menus, multipixmap titlebars, FvwmButtons on the bottom that badly simulates the RedmondXP panel (it is managed by fvwm module written in perl), icons tinted differently in menus, shadow text and FreeType fonts. On the right is gkrellm.

A similar configuration is availaible out of the box in fvwm-themes 0.7.0 or greater.

Submitted by Marc A. Lehmann. This is an Xinerama desktop showing some interesting side mounted titles, flat borders and gradients in the titlebars. The @fvwm2rc@ is M4 based and contains some interesting stuff too.

Mark says: ... features XineramaSls, a really old fvwm config incrementally updated to fvwm2 over the years. The config tries to implement the following:

  • clean and reasonably fast (ok, gradients crept in over time ;)
  • the active window must be very visible
  • lots of virtual desktops, overlaps reduced to the minimum
  • no unnecessary clutter, large terminals
  • syslog on root-window using root-tail

Submitted by Maciej_Delmanowski. Maciej says: I used FVWM to create my own desktop enviroment. It's called 'FVWM - Crystal' and it's based on the unstable/CVS branch (2.5.6). It's features include:
  • transparent panels/window titles
  • intensive use of mouse buttons; normal is using 2 buttons to make different tasks, usually all three are used
  • new look at user interface, for example close/minimize/kill functions are combined in one title-bar button; there are two modes of moving or maximizing a window; interface is clean and provides a lot of space on the desktop - all panels can be hid by just middle-clicking on the desktop
  • intensive use of keyboard shortcuts (example: numpad, used to control windows - resizing, moving, shading, etc. - has 37 different shortcuts); there are keys to control window placement, moving windows between dekstops and resizing them; also included is control over xmms with additional programs

Submitted by MURAKAMI Tomokazu. This is FVWM version 2.3.22. It's compiled with the --enable-kanji option. With this, I can use Nipponese satisfactorily. Furthermore, I set up Emacs to be able to use JIS X 0213."
