fvwm-convert-2.4 - convert fvwm 2.2.x configuration file to fvwm 2.4 syntax


fvwm-convert-2.4 [source] [dest]


fvwm-convert-2.4 converts an fvwm 2.2.x configuration file into an fvwm 2.4 compatible
syntax. It is not suitable to convert older 1.x configuration files. Please use fvwm-
convert-2.2 to convert these to the 2.2.x format first.

By default, fvwm-convert-2.4 converts ~/.fvwm2rc, saving the results in ~/.fvwm/.fvwm2rc.
You must create the ~/.fvwm directory before running this command. Starting with the 2.4
release, the directory ~/.fvwm is the default location for fvwm user configuration files.
Different source and destination files may be given. If the destination file already
exists, this program exits. While the program runs it will generate a temporary file with
the same name as the destination file with the suffix ".pass1" added.

fvwm-convert-2.4 makes the following changes:

In fvwm 2.4, the PixmapPath and IconPath commands are replaced by the ImagePath
command. In addition, the ImagePath can be compiled into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4
changes the PixmapPath and IconPath commands to ImagePath commands and removes any
directories that are compiled into fvwm. Paths starting with a dollar sign are also

In fvwm 2.4, the ModulePath is compiled into fvwm. fvwm-convert-2.4 removes any
ModulePath commands it finds. If you are using your own modules, (not the ones that
come with fvwm), you will have to fix your configuration file after using fvwm-

In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColor command is replaced by a Style command using the
HilightFore and HilightBack arguments. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes these changes.

In fvwm 2.4, the HighlightColorset command that was present in some of the 2.3.x beta
releases is replaced by a Style command using the HilightColorset style. fvwm-
convert-2.4 makes these changes.

In fvwm 2.4, the WindowShadeAnimate command is replaced by the WindowShadeSteps Style
option. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change.

In fvwm 2.4, the WindowFont command is replaced by a Style command using the Font
argument. fvwm-convert-2.4 makes this change.

In fvwm 2.4, the ColorLimit command is automatic. If you have a limited colormap,
color limiting is the default. fvwm-convert-2.4 removes any ColorLimit command that
it finds.

The GlobalOpts command is converted to Style options and the BugOpts command. Some
options can not be converted automatically, though.

Prints a message identifying any read commands found. The files being read may need
to be converted also.

Placement Styles
Any of the old placement Styles found in the file can not be converted automatically.
Instead, fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a warning. For details about the conversion, please
refer to the "Window manager placement" section of the fvwm man page.

FvwmConfig and FvwmPipe
These modules are no longer a part of the fvwm distribution. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints
a warning if these modules are found in the file.

FvwmButtons panels
The syntax of panels in FvwmButtons has changed. The conversion can not be done
automatically. fvwm-convert-2.4 prints a message when it encounters a potential panel
definition. For details about the conversion, please refer to the "CONVERTING OLD
PANEL CONFIGURATIONS" section of the FvwmButtons man page.
