sloppy focus with flwm
« on: August 09, 2011, 01:22:56 AM »
On the whole I like FLWM, but there are one or two things I'd like to change:

I don't like the click to focus, and prefer the focus to follow the mouse,
And I'm not sure that I like the independent width and height adjustment.

Is it possible to change these? Or is there another wm that is similar to flwm but allows one to change these? I've used blackbox, but it doesn't let you change windows and call up the menu with alt+f4.

Thanks for any help.
IBM Thinkpad R52, pentium M, 1.73GHz, 1Gb RAM.
I've used linux for a year and a bit. I started with Puppy, have tried Zenwalk and Xubuntu. I'm currently using TC 2.10rc1, Puppy, Crunchbang, and Slackware.
Primary use: document editing.
Also internet, movies, music, midi.

Hi storckm
For the focus issue, you can download the source. In the  config.h  file are options to change that
behavior. Install the compiletc package. Then run FLWMs compile script. For the buttons you might
have to dive into the code.
