Submitted by Dominik Vogt, another one of my palettes (a list can be seen in the Palette menu), an example of the 'SubmenusLeft' menu style. I'm fixing a menu bug in the xemacs window in the background while viewing our screenshots page with netscape 8-)

Submitted by Dominik Vogt, shows soft gradients in menus and titlebars, a shaded window on the left side of the top edge, FvwmButtons on the bottom edge, some menus containing directory listings (updated every time they are opened) and a bit of my .fvwm2rc in the top right shell. The colour palette is one of about twenty I hijacked from CDE. Sub menus are nicely centered around their parent item (use 'Popup menu-name item +100 c' for this effect).

Submitted by Dan Espen, shows pixmap borders, the Fvwm2 setup dialog using FvwmForm, shaped icons, and a minimal use of fvwm modules.

Submitted by Christian Michon, who says:
  • Using fvwm-2.4.6 and loving it.
  • Liberal usage of FvwmWharf, FvwmTheme, FvwmAnimate
  • Plenty of xpm...
  • Gradients were not used: pixmaps with reduced color were used instead
Fvwm2 *does* rock! Waiting impatiently for native PNG support.

(Christian's wish was fulfilled.)

Second submission by Andre Bonhote. Normally, we show one screenshot per user, but just this once, we'll show how desktops evolve over time. This was submitted Dec 2002, and the first one was submitted Oct 2000.

Andre says: This screenshot shows fvwm 2.5.5 (from cvs) with a lot of transparency. Title bars, borders, menues and pagers (invisible at the moment) are all fully transparent, some are shaded to look blueish. Besides fvwm2, you see my logs in three aterms on the right side of the screen. Below that xchat and a small gkrellm. On the left, there's mutt in an Eterm. The nice background is done by xplanet and refreshed every 15 minutes.

Submitted by Andre Bonhote. My desktop shows (of course) fvwm, of which not much is being seen actually. Only the root menu and the decorations are really fvwm-like. I like gtk so I am using gnome's panels (top and bottom, left hand side). There's an aterm window using transparency, gqmpeg and netscape, and, of course, gkrellm running. For the colors, I used grdb and grdb2fvwm, which takes gnome's colors and fonts and puts it into my fvwm2rc. it's quite useful, I think.

Submitted by An Thi-Nguyen Le. Simple window and menu decors using diagonal and backwards-diagonal gradients. Buttons are actual defaults from fvwm. :) The modules used are FvwmButtons (I'd use the $fg and $bg variables for the swallowed shell but that makes it harder to read in this case), FvwmPager, FvwmIconMan (the very bestest icon manager around). Dockapps are xpostit and wmnetselect. On the right is GKrellM, nice themable stacked system monitors.
