fvwm configuration file location on opensuse 11.3 (and revised file)

I am a keen fvwm user, and was happily using a personalized fvwm2rc on my old suse 9.2 system, which I derived from the bundled default configuration.

I have just moved to a new 11.3 system and, since I noticed my fvwm2rc had problems, I wanted to compare it with the bundled default configuration. But where is it ?

I found one in /etc/X11/fvwm/system.fvwmrc which is not one of the official locations for it according to man fvwm INITIALIZATION section. Since the file was “signed” by Thomas Adams (the fvwm author), I posted a query on the fvwm mailing list.

As a result of this I interacted with Thomas Adams, which generated a revised version of the config file. He asked me to “send it upstream to SuSE’s maintainer for FVWM” on his behalf, but I do not know who such mantainer is, so I will be posting it here for somebody to pick it up.

As I do not see a way to attach a file, I will post this message, and include the file in a reply.

Incidentally, I verified that the file in etc/X11/fvwm/ is the one being actually read for an user without a custom config (with a silly trick, I duplicated an entry in a menu definition, and verified it did show in the menu).

Did not find a way to attach a file, and the file is marginally to be big to be posted here.
Put it to this upload site

i guess you missed my post telling you how and where to contact the
developer you are looking for, here:

imo it is highly unlikely the SUSE dev involved with fvwm ever
comes by this forum…

The system wide configuration file is /etc/X11/fvwm2/system.fvwm2rc
