Hi developpers,

after hours of searching and trial and error I finally give up and ask you for help. Perhaps someone knows what I am doing wrong.
Some time ago I hacked a bit with fvwm to make it support xrandr, i.e. the viewport gets updated and the menus show up in the
right place. This hack worked fine with Angstrom (->xorg-1.3.0.x). But as this distro does not have the applications I want I switched back
to pdaXrom 1.1.0beta1. And here (->xfree-4.4.0) xrandr does not work. The problem is especially that the event is promoted to fvwm, but
the XRRScreenChangeNotifyEvent does not have the new width and height. Consequently DisplayWidh(...) does return the old width
even after having called XRRUpdateConfiguration(...). On the other hand the field "rotation" is updated.
Does anyone have an idea why?
One more information: I installed icewm from the feed which supports xrandr well. If I compile it myself it has the same problem.
Perhaps it is just a matter of compilation options?

I'd really appreciate if someone could help.

I compiled metatheme to have a unique look over both qt and gtk apps in pdaX.
But I don't manage to set the style for qt.
Has anyone an idea why? Perhaps styles aren't enabled in qt on pdaX?

Hi fvwm-users (and others),

perhaps you are interested in a menu that shows the coming appointments and
todos from your .ics calendar file.
I wrote it because I do not want to have kopi open all the time and I missed a
feature like the "Today" app for opie and qpe. And for pleasure, of course ;-)
It is writen in AWK and builds the menu on-the-fly. To give you an idea how it looks:

Of couse it may be changed (this one is for my desktop, the pdaXrom version looks different). To integrate it you may do the following:
In your .fvwm2rc add lines like
DestroyFunc RecreateTodayMenu
AddToFunc RecreateTodayMenu
+ I DestroyMenu recreate TodayMenu
+ I ChangeMenuStyle today TodayMenu
+ I Piperead '$[HOME]/bin/appointment-applet.awk MENU_NAME=TodayMenu\
+ I AddToMenu TodayMenu DynamicPopupAction RecreateTodayMenu

CopyMenuStyle * today
Colorset 31 fg black, bg white, sh #ababab, hi white
MenuStyle today ItemFormat "%3i%5.5l%.2r"
MenuStyle today MenuColorset 31
ChangeMenuStyle today TodayMenu
AddToMenu TodayMenu DynamicPopupAction RecreateTodayMenu

# Add to root menu
AddToMenu MenuFvwmRoot Popup TodayMenu

Of course the script may also by used by others. It is structured in a simple way.
There is the BEGIN block where some defaults are set. There you should change the
icons to ones that exists on pdaXrom.
Then comes the evaluation of the text lines from korganizerrc and mycalendar.ics.
The special block /END:(VEVENT|VTODO)/ collects the data for one appointment or todo and stores it in arrays.
In the END block that data is printed.

If you intend to use it on the desktop be sure to have gawk installed. At least with the awk version that comes with ubuntu base installation the script doesn't work. On pdaXrom I had no problems.
I hope you like it and I would appreciate comments and hints to enhance it.

finally I managed to get the game running on xscale. The only drawback
is that network game may not work (I didn't test it, but I had to change the
source at least to get the single player going).

Enjoy it.

Hey you approximate five fvwm users on pdaX,

perhaps you are interested in a module that monitors the apm status.
I wrote it to replace a shell script which needed to much resources.
You can configure certain commands that are executed when the
battery/AC - status changes. Just look at the sample config
in /share/fvwm.
If you want to compile it:
Unpack the source within the modules directory of the fvwm source tree
and change the Makefile to your needs.
