fvwm-95: Focus follows mouse ????

Post by Ken Patto » Sun, 01 Dec 1996 04:00:00



Hi.

I can't seem to get fvwm-95 to do "focus follows mouse".
In my .fvwmrc95 whatever file I commented out click to
focus.  Everything else I change (colors, etc.) seem to
work when I change them and restart, but this doesn't.
It stays at click to focus.  I'm using the latest Slackware
distribution (96) with Linux 2.0.0, I think XFree86 3.1.2.

Any ideas?

thanks,

ken

Try the following in your .fvwmrc95 file:

#Style "*" ClickToFocus
# Comment the above and uncomment one of the following if you prefer
# focus follow mouse.
Style "*" MouseFocus
#Style "*" SloppyFocus

i believe the setting is SloppyFocus (don't have my .fvwm2rc95 handy)...

1. Focus follows mouse in fvwm

Just installed Slackware Linux 3.1 and got fvwm without even
trying.  As a twm user, I'm very impressed, but .... I've
spent 3 hours now trying to obtain "Focus follows mouse"
behavior instead of "ClicktoFocus".  Read fvwm man page, traced
through "startx" and "system.fvwmrc" and "system.fvwm2rc95"
scripts and thought removing, in both the system fvwm2rc95 file and
the one written to my home directory, the line "Style "*" ClickToFocus"
would do the trick.  Didn't work.

Made an .xinitrc and a .fvwm2rc95 file in my home directory; the first
brings up two xterms and starts fvwm95-2, while the second has one
line, "Style "*" FocusFollowsMouse.  Still I'm getting click to focus
behavior.

So what's the problem?
