I had a look at the fvwm site, but I got confused with how-to uncompress the configs etc.
Could you elaborate with an example file name ...
The config examples provided through the "Links" link under the heading "Quick Jumps" on the front page are standard ascii english files. And the wm sw is in standard ".tar.gz" formate
ftp://ftp.fvwm.org/pub/fvwm/version-2/f ... .19.tar.gz
ftp://ftp.fvwm.org/pub/fvwm/version-2/f ... 19.tar.bz2
]$ tar -zxf fvwm-2.4.19.tar.gz
]$ tar -jxf fvwm-2.4.19.tar.bz2
They also have rpm packages from sourceforge and standard .deb packages.
If you want to unpack a deb with out the package management system handy ... no problem ... it's just an "ar" archive.
]$ ar x filename.deb
gives you ...
The last is just a text file which can be ignored. The control.tar.gz will unpack creating a directory called "DEBIAN" with the scripts that the management system would normally use to install/remove the package, along with a pa package description.
The data.tar.gz will unpack into your current directory with the actual files, in their respective install path structure.
Nothing to it.
To repack, just use ar but reverse the order.
It's been ages since iv'e been on fvwms' site
, looks like they haven't been idle
. Thanks for the nudge, iv'e been meaning to spend more time over there but kept putting it off (grin).
If yourv'e got any problems with it, just post the specific issue. Iv'e never been on there forum as such so i can't say much about that. Actually, i didn't really notice before that they had one ... will have to look into that too
Can't really figure what you mean above though ??? (grin)
