NAME

fvwm-themes-start - FVWM Themes starter

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

fvwm-themes-start [ --session|-s name ] [ --no-start|-n ] [ --fvwm-exe|-e ] [ -- fvwm-args ]

DESCRIPTION

This script runs fvwm with FVWM Themes. It should be run under X. Put a call to this script as the last line of your .Xclients, .xinitrc or .xsession file.

OPTIONS

--session name - name of the FVWM Themes session. By default it is "main". This allows to have and run different FVWM Themes configuration.

--no-start - do not start fvwm, just do preparation for starting it. This is useful to start FVWM Themes with a session manager, see FAQ.

--fvwm-exe - changes the default executable, which is fvwm or whatever fvwm-config --fvwm-exe returns.

-- everything after -- is passed to FVWM. See the fvwm(1) man page for the fvwm options.

EXAMPLES

Most users just should put:

        fvwm-themes-start

as the last line of their .Xclients, .xinitrc or .xsession file. If you want to use FVWM Themes with a real session manager, say GNOME, you need to use the --no-start option and put:

        fvwm-themes-start --no-start         gnome-session

as the last lines of your .Xclients, .xinitrc or .xsession file. The session option allows to use FVWM Themes with different configurations. Say, you want to use 3 different configurations under a normal FVWM session when FOO test is false, under gnome-session and under a normal FVWM session when FOO test is true. Then, your .xinitrc/.xsession file may look as follows (where $1 is the "first" argument given by startx, or by kdm or gdm ...):

        ...         case $1 in          fvwm)          if FOO; Then          fvwm-themes-start --session special          else          fvwm-themes-start fi          ;;          gnome)          fvwm-themes-start --session gnome --no-start          gnome-session          ;;          ... other cases ...         esac            

Note that with most session managers (e.g., GNOME or XSM) it is preferable to give "fvwm -f themes-rc" as the starting window manager command in the session manager.
