Resize on X-Window missing

Hello all,

I have been experimenting with window managers and have decided to stick with fvwm.


  1. When xterm windows are started, there is no way to resize the window using the mouse. The pointer just doesn’t work.
  2. There is also no menu so there is no way to actually close the window :frowning:
  3. Is there any way to set the background of the desktop so it is something other than gray?


I haven’t used fvwm is probably 10 years, so I leave 1 & 2 to someone else, but you can do 3 with xsetroot. Try something like “xsetroot -solid green”.
