I don't understand the man page. It says there is a function called
FvwmAuto, so I added it the initinialise function in the system.fvwm95 file
in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults/fvwm95. I also tried putting it in the home
the user that logs in on the 'Welcome to X windows startup screen'.
It has no effect. What am I doing wrong? Is there something else I have to
I must have windows raise to the front automatically as the mouse moves
of it. All the other window managers can do it.
Actually I am using fvwm95-2 (well thats the name of the man page), so the
of the rc file is slightly different to system.fvwm95, but I can't remember
I have now stuffed my Linux installation totally, because I am using the
file system in same DOS FAT16 partition as windows95. I stupidly moved my
system.fvmw95 startup file to somewhere else so that I could confirm that
the file the window manager was looking at. Now because of the way my
file is setup (it starts X automatically) I have no window manager when
boots. I login at the X start up screen but have no way to bring up an
I also can't stop X from starting either, I tried ^\ and ^D and ^C but I
can't stop it.
I tried booting Linux from my startup boot disk floppy, but still X comes
I can't stop it. Having X startup automatically by altering inittab is not
anything happens to your window manager you are totally *ed. If I do
X just restarts, it doesn't exit.
I thought the solution was to boot windows95 and then alter my Linux files
windows95. This has just *ed things up even more. Because if you use
windows95 to edit your Linux files in a Linux msdos partition it doesn't
the files in a way that is compatible with the Linux file system.
Linux now thinks that my /etc/rc.d/rc.4 file is missing, even though I can
from windows95, so now when I boot Linux X doesn't even start.
My Linux distribution is Slackware 3.3 and I still have the CD's, I think
the only solution is to be able to change certain files in my Linux
filesystem, either from
windows95 or from a Linux boot floppy, in a way that is recognized by my
umsdos filesystem. However my linux boot floppy boots in the same way as
I normally boot off the C drive.
Please email me immediately if you can help. I need to use my Linux system
urgently. Thanks for reading such a long post.
