fvwm-bug - report a bug in fvwm
fvwm-bug [--help] [--version] [address]
fvwm-bug is a shell script to help the user compose and mail bug reports concerning fvwm in a standard format. fvwm-bug invokes the editor
specified by the environment variable EDITOR on a temporary copy of the bug report format outline. The user must fill in the appropriate
fields and exit the editor. fvwm-bug then mails the completed report to the local fvwm maintainer, the fvwm workers list fvwm-work-
firstname.lastname@example.org, or address. If the report cannot be mailed, it is saved in the file dead.fvwm-bug in the invoking user's home directory.
The bug report format outline consists of several sections. The first section provides information about the machine, operating system,
the fvwm version, and the compilation environment. The second section should be filled in with a description of the bug. The third sec-
tion should be a description of how to reproduce the bug. The optional fourth section is for a proposed fix. Fixes are encouraged.
fvwm-bug will utilize the following environment variables if they exist:
EDITOR Specifies the preferred editor. If EDITOR is not set, fvwm-bug defaults to emacs.
HOME Directory in which the failed bug report is saved if the mail fails.

fvwm-convert-2.4(1) Fvwm Modules fvwm-convert-2.4(1)NAME
fvwm-convert-2.4 - convert fvwm 2.2.x configuration file to fvwm 2.4 syntax
fvwm-convert-2.4 [source] [dest]
fvwm-convert-2.4 converts an fvwm 2.2.x configuration file into an fvwm 2.4 compatible syntax. It is not suitable to convert older 1.x
configuration files. Please use fvwm-convert-2.2 to convert these to the 2.2.x format first.
By default, fvwm-convert-2.4 converts ~/.fvwm2rc, saving the results in ~/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc. You must create the ~/.fvwm directory before
running this command. Starting with the 2.4 release, the directory ~/.fvwm is the default location for fvwm user configuration files.
Different source and destination files may be given. If the destination file already exists, this program exits. While the program runs
it will generate a temporary file with the same name as the destination file with the suffix ".pass1" added.
fvwm-convert-2.4 makes the following changes:
In fvwm 2.4, the PixmapPath and IconPath commands are replaced by the ImagePath command. In addition, the ImagePath can be compiled
into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4 changes the PixmapPath and IconPath commands to ImagePath commands and removes any directories that are
compiled into fvwm. Paths starting with a dollar sign are also removed.
In fvwm 2.4, the ModulePath is compiled into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4 removes any ModulePath commands it finds. If you are using your
own modules, (not the ones that come with fvwm), you will have to fix your configuration file after using fvwm-convert-2.4.
In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColor command is replaced by a Style command using the HilightFore and HilightBack arguments. fvwm-con-
vert-2.4 makes these changes.
In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColorset command that was present in some of the 2.3.x beta releases is replaced by a Style command using the
HilightColorset style. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes these changes.
In fvwm 2.4, the WindowShadeAnimate command is replaced by the WindowShadeSteps Style option. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change.
In fvwm 2.4, the WindowFont command is replaced by a Style command using the Font argument. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change.
In fvwm 2.4, the ColorLimit command is automatic. If you have a limited colormap, color limiting is the default. fvwm-convert-2.4
removes any ColorLimit command that it finds.
The GlobalOpts command is converted to Style options and the BugOpts command. Some options can not be converted automatically, though.
Prints a message identifying any read commands found. The files being read may need to be converted also.
Any of the old placement Styles found in the file can not be converted automatically. Instead, fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a warning. For
details about the conversion, please refer to the "Window manager placement" section of the fvwm man page.
FvwmConfig and FvwmPipe
These modules are no longer a part of the fvwm distribution. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a warning if these modules are found in the file.
The syntax of panels in FvwmButtons has changed. The conversion can not be done automatically. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a message when
it encounters a potential panel definition. For details about the conversion, please refer to the "CONVERTING OLD PANEL CONFIGURA-
TIONS" section of the FvwmButtons man page.
You need Perl to be installed.
WindowFont and HilightColor commands embedded in functions are not found. If you have either of these commands in functions, they are not
Known bugs can be found in the fvwm bug tracking system (accessible from the fvwm home page).
Bug reports can be sent to the fvwm-workers mailing list (see the FAQ).
