Re: Arch Linux Fvwm myExt + Xfce-Fvwm-EXT (respin) CD

Thanks rasat;-), actually I don't use Fvwm and use a tiller I3WM for my daily env, I just build an ISO with Fvwm which makes it a little more hassle to create all (edited) files & configs & scripts! needed for the ISO which are created on the ISO!
I already read a lot of wiki, forum and github about Fvwm and already came across NsCDE (& others), just haven't tried one of them, yet, only your spin. If I have some spare time I will try NsCDE combo, thanks:-)

Also, sorry my scripts, weren't perfect. It's true I should learn more awk and I should use Trilby's example of that script, I have a few more of that kind of script, if I just find the time...

Re: Arch Linux Fvwm myExt + Xfce-Fvwm-EXT (respin) CD

I need help with a simple script solution not to make it too complex as I currently have in mind. It is for the new extension installer.
The result of the selection of checklist items is in file "Install.txt". Sample...

TRUE 203
TRUE 301
TRUE 602
TRUE 603

The selected extension numbers will be installed by file "ExtraExt.sys". Sample....

# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Styles/DiaryThumbnails/diaryThumbPlace.sys #202
# Read $[CORE_DIR]/2-3Styles/MyBorderStyle/myBorderStyle.sys #203

# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Menus/MyMenu/mMenu.conf #301

# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Bindings/DiaryMouseBinding/diaryMBindings.sys #401
# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Bindings/MyKBinding/myKeyBindings.sys #402

# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Decors/DiaryDecor/dDecor.sys #501
# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/Decors/MyDecor/myDec.sys #502

# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/MODULES/ControlPagerB/controlPg.sys #601
# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/MODULES/DashToDock/action/west.conf #602
# Read $[EXTRA_DIR]/MODULES/DeskSwitch/deskSwitch.sys #603

All extensions are tagged (#). The script will untag the corresponding line that has the same number as in the file "Install.txt". For example, TRUE 203 will untag the line with #203

# Read $[CORE_DIR]/2-3Styles/MyBorderStyle/myBorderStyle.sys #203

To (without "#" before Read)

Read $[CORE_DIR]/2-3Styles/MyBorderStyle/myBorderStyle.sys #203

Re: Arch Linux Fvwm myExt + Xfce-Fvwm-EXT (respin) CD

Got the solution on Stack Overflow
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/714 … other-file

search=$(awk 'BEGIN{OFS=ORS=""}{if(NR>1){print "|"}print $2;}' Install.txt)
sed -i -r "s/^# (.*#($search))$/\1/g" ExtraExt.sys

This extension installer completes version myExt 3.1, included in the new CD respin.

Re: Arch Linux Fvwm myExt + Xfce-Fvwm-EXT (respin) CD

Finally, the Fvwm extensions are ready. Work like a user-oriented model to use, modify and create your own. It is a One-time install and then upgrade with Extension Installer. This graphic installer makes it user-friendly for those who prefer a quick setup of their choice. The update is handled through the GitHub repository, thanks to qinohe's idea:
https://github.com/rasatpc/FVWM3-myEXT

How does it work? Make a test run.
There is one new Arch Linux Fvwm-myExt respin ISO (3.1.4) in the SourceForge site that has been recognized with a Rising Star award by SourceForge.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/fvwm3- … tribution/
(ArchLinux-Fvwm3-myExt-v3.1.4-x86_64.iso)

Login:
user: demo
pass: demo

How does it look, click the below screenshot.

Re: Arch Linux Fvwm myExt + Xfce-Fvwm-EXT (respin) CD

Here is the Arch Linux Xfce-Fvwm Extension respin ISO . This has become my day-to-day WM. As I mentioned in the "Screenshot Thread", Xfce is an excellent application manager, and Fvwm is the best window/virtual manager. Combining these two becomes a perfect WM. Super light with unlimited functionalities.

Download (ArchLinux-Xfce-Fvwm-EXT-v1.0.5-x86_64.iso):
https://sourceforge.net/projects/fvwm3- … nload-iso/

Here are the details of the features and extensions shown on the screenshot:
