mk.xchar - help window managers to invoke xchar programs
mk.xchar <window-manager> mk.xchar fvwm >>.fvwm/config
mk.char outputs a configfile or configfile fragment for the specified window manager, typically to map keys to xchar(1) programs.
Currently the only window manager known is fvwm.
You may need to restart the window manager after modifying its configfile.
'mk.xchar fvwm' outputs example lines for inclusion in your fvwm configfile. Most of them map keys to raise and move windows using the xchar(1) programs.
It also outputs lines that tell fvwm to omit the titlebar on xtb (xchar's vertical taskbar), and make control-mod1-x launch xtb at upper right of the screen.
You can see which keys you currently have assigned to mod1, mod3, and mod4 with 'xmodmap -pm' & xev(1).
The main maps are:
mod3-0 raises window '0' mod3-1 raises window '1' ... mod3-a raises window 'a' mod3-b raises window 'b' ... mod3-A raises window 'A' ... mod4-0 moves the current window to geometry '0' mod4-1 moves the current window to geometry '1' ... mod4-a moves the current window to geometry 'a' mod4-b moves the current window to geometry 'b' ... mod4-A moves the current window to geometry 'A' ...
The remaining maps assume that xtb has character '.':
mod3-. raises xtb mod3-leftarrow moves xtb to the left mod3-rightarrow moves xtb to the right
