FLWM wireframe window drags for 64 bit?
« on: June 07, 2019, 01:50:42 PM »
Running just stock Xfbdev and flwm.

Is there any way to force flwm to do wire-frame window drags, instead of the fully active ones?  At least for 64 bit / Xfbdev

The reason I ask is that when using the jwm window manager under the same circumstances, the wire-frame drags provide a much smoother experience.

Sure, we're not fully utilizing the video accelleration features by using Xfbdev, but the window drags, especially when using terminals, is jerky enough to be an irritant.  Especially if your mouse acceleration is such that the active windows stops in place, but your mouse is across the screen awaiting you to let up on it.

I'm also running EFI, but still - I think wireframe drags would be appropriate here too.

Sure, xorg would fix this, but I like the 64-bit / Xfbdev / EFI environment for my needs.

If there's any way to force flwm to wire-drag, I'd dig it.

No, I don't think flwm has support for that. Why not use jwm?
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I think you are right!  I've simply outgrown flwm.

The more I look into Jwm, the more I like it.  Seems like just the right combo of looks, size, performance, and easy user-config tweaking for my needs.

Jwm it is!  Looking forward to spending some quality time with it.
