FvwmPager with pixmap backgrounds, some nice icons and mini-icons,

I like a clean desktop. I created a gradient for my fvwm menu and I called
it "ocean". I used a blue gradient for the active titlebar and a grey
gradient for inactive. I can easily switch between viewports with
"alt+arrow". The icons are from wm-icons. You can see in the top left
corner two tiny fvwm buttons. The first is to hide/unhide zinf, the
audio player, the second is a "swallow" of my jabber status. Clicking
on it hides/unhides the psi main window.
I put xplanet in the backround with tracking of some satellites. (you
can see ISS and XMM). On the right, this is gkrellm and a sticky
transprent aterm in the bottom. Only 3 lines, it's just to launch some
When I minimize an application, the icon is sent to my vertical icon
box, just under grkrellm, but I do it rarely. I prefer shading of
windows, like the xterm at the top of the screen.
I just discovered today the cool "Aqua" skin for GTK and the "Aqua" skin
for phoenix, my favourite browser.
I documented a lot my
fvwm2rc file, but in french...
Yes, I hate taskbars and icons ! ;)

| A setup uses the Super_L for most FVWM-related operations. FvwmButtons in
the bottom left corner and the icons appear/disappear when Super_L is
pressed/released. Also, FvwmButtons is shown for a second or so when
the mouse pointer hits a screen edge. Switching pages with EdgeScroll
still works. All these tricks are possible with the new Schedule
command. Finally, a window thumbnail used as its icon is produced
when the window has had focus for some time, not when it is being
iconified. This makes FVWM feel more responsive.

This screenshot shows a clean and simple desktop.
On the top left
is FvwmButtons which opens panels of apps I use frequently for a
very short time (like IM's). On the top right,
GKrellM is showing
all the things I like to monitor. The bottom right corner contains
FvwmPager. The background is generated by
The fonts show the anti-aliasing support of FVWM.
The icons in the menus are mostly taken from the
