Up: Using X-based workstations
The default configuration files on the Unix Teaching System are
- /usr/local/lib/X11/fvwm/system.fvwmrc for fvwm
- /opt/fvwm/etc/.fvwm2rc for the newer fvwm2
These determine general behaviour as well as the items on the menus.
To customise you'll first need to take a copy of
the appropriate file by doing one of the following
so that the window manager will in future use this new file when starting.
- cp /usr/local/lib/X11/fvwm/system.fvwmrc /.fvwmrc
- cp /opt/fvwm/etc/.fvwm2rc /.fvwm2rc
There is much you can change in this file. Details are in the manual
and the fvwm Homepage
