fvwm-themes-start - FVWM Themes starter
fvwm-themes-start [ --session|-s name ] [
--no-start|-n ] [ --fvwm-exe|-e ] [ -- fvwm-args ]
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.
--session name - name of the FVWM Themes session. By default it is
"main". This allows to have and run different FVWM Themes
--no-start - do not start fvwm, just do preparation for
starting it. This is useful to start FVWM Themes with a session manager, see
--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.
Most users just should put:
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:
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
if FOO; Then
fvwm-themes-start --session special
fvwm-themes-start --session gnome --no-start
... other cases ...
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.
