Simple config for feline addict C coder and vim user like me, which I use and clone for about two years. It's dark themed highly modernized MWM looking with permanently removed annoying "close" button which I did always hit by mistake in my earlier window managers...
It implements three named desktops for me, true Quake terminal happily stolen from this forum somewhere, automatic maximizing, some special adjustments for informational message windows, Win-D "show desktop" (all current desktop windows minimizer), panic button, and it may require some further cleanup.
Windows policy is to keep windows locked on the single desktop, but free to "send" between them via window menu. This is I think most comfortable setup for me because I operate mostly from keyboard.
I used Pager for a while, but then, because I operate mostly from keyboard, I decided to turn it off. A matter of taste. And that's why I loved FVWM since first look: it enabled me to configure my desktop freely.Fvwm Config + Icons
Bob says: I'm a user, and have been since RedHat 5.1 abouot 18 years ago. I got into linux because of the Micro$oft blue screen of death.
Basically, my configuration is taken from here that I customized to my likes. Transparent window titles for inactive windows. Small vertical pager. Possibility to roll a window to its window title (on the left in my case). Transparent menus (doesn't show on the screenshot). There are also two applications which are transparent and sticky so that they look like they are on the root window (your idea!). Those applications are on the bottom left (a slide show with 2 xbiffs) and the other one on the right, with the time, various widgets and action buttons. This app is named a Crocbar, and written in Java. (but lightweight, yes, yes). But that's not part of FVWM. Yet, it's a neat way to have something that looks like a FvwmButtons module or dock.

This configuration is a combination of the default configuration via FvwmForm-Setup, plus a few changes. Since FVWM has no systray program of its own, I'm using trayer for this.
Untitled is something I came up with, when someone in #fvwm started to ask for "tabs" like they are used in chromium. I like to have a lot of informations on display, so I added the "statusbar".
I made toogrey when I got yet another laptop.
Wallpaper can be found here
I expanded a conky setup made by arpinux to fit my needs, original can be found here.
international mod was inspired by a winamp and bbwin theme called (surprise!) international, I found on customize.org. I still use it on my laptop. You can download it here
But you will need a patched fvwm to have it look as in the screenshot.
