Description rsciurba 1999-04-05 15:10:55 EDT
When running the default fvwm2 (version 2.0.46 with options
SHAPE XPM and M4), the xosview utility does not get attached
to the fvwm2.
Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-04-06 12:21:59 EDT
what do you mean 'does not get attached'.  Please be more descriptive.
Comment 2 rsciurba 1999-04-07 14:07:59 EDT
xosview does not run with the fvwm2 attached to the xosview process.
Cannot manipulate window (resize, move, etc...).

To reproduce:

1)  startx using the fvwm2
2)  Insert cdrom disk 1 in cdrom drive;
3)  run glint; install the xosview utility
4)  run xosview. xosview does not run with the fvwm2.  cannot
manipulate xosview window.  can only kill the process at the command
Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-06-21 11:11:59 EDT
AnotherLevel (our default fvwm2 setup) makes xosview have no border or
window.  You need to select "move window" from the "window operations"
menu in order to move windows like xeyes or xosview.  This is a
feature, not a bug.
