Used command for symlink

sudo ln -s /home/tc/new_flwm_topside /usr/local/bin/flwm_topside

It doesn't start because you made it a shared library with "-shared", not a binary.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi Curaga,
Without "-shared" generating errors...
Code: [Select]
/tmp/ccnotk6r.ltrans4.ltrans.o: In function `request_menu_refresh(int)':
<artificial>:(.text+0xb): undefined reference to `wmx_time'
/tmp/ccnotk6r.ltrans4.ltrans.o: In function `arg(int, char**, int&)':

<artificial>:(.text+0xa09): undefined reference to `XSync'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
And with this command
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~/flwm$ g++ -flto -fuse-linker-plugin -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti /usr/local/lib/libfltk_images.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk_f
orms.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk.so.1.3  -o ./../new_flwm_topside -DTOPSIDE *.C $CXXFLAGS $LDFLAGS
The errors are...
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/bin/ld: /tmp/ccgYXdlb.ltrans0.ltrans.o: undefined reference to symbol 'XConfigureWindow'
/usr/local/lib/libX11.so.6: error adding symbols: DSO missing from command line
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
Please guide, what am I missing?

Hi Rich,
Thank you very much for the hit...
Only adding "-lX11" to command has not worked.
Following command worked for me..
Code: [Select]
g++ -flto -fuse-linker-plugin -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti /usr/local/lib/libfltk_images.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk_forms.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libX11.so.6.3.0  -o ./../new_flwm_topside -DTOPSIDE *.C $CXXFLAGS $LDFLAGS
and this also worked
Code: [Select]
g++ -flto -fuse-linker-plugin -march=i486 -mtune=i686 -Os -pipe -fno-exceptions -fno-rtti /usr/local/lib/libfltk_images.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk_forms.so.1.3 /usr/local/lib/libfltk.so.1.3 -lX11  -o ./../new_flwm_topside -DTOPSIDE *.C $CXXFLAGS $LDFLAGS
The new "flwm_topside" is working fine with modified "./flwm/config.h" as
Code: [Select]
#define DESKTOP 0
But when "./flwm/config.h" is modified as (either or both)..
Code: [Select]
#define WMX_MENU_ITEMS 0
#define XTERM_MENU_ITEM 0
Result: no title bar on GUI windows.
Also may I ask how to disable "Ctrl+Esc" for closing/terminating GUI apps.

Short-cut do'nt know.

Posible solution may be :
1) use xmodmap, which maps keys , and xev, which traps key events and prints to the screen. Xev shows mappings for each key pressed. Need to change the .xmodmap file, in /home directory. If not there ,  create one or you can find it in /etc/x11, however, altering this file will change the system for every user.....

2) xbindkey allows advanced mapping of keysyms to actions independently of the Desktop Environment.

Hi Pats,
Successfully used xmodmap. Thank you very much for help.

resolved by editing *.C files.
