The commands in .fvwm2rc are fvwm-commands. fvwm does not know
the "fvwm"-command rox. But it knows how to start external programs by
the fvwm-command "Exec".
The "normal" way to add programs at startup is to add them
to the fvwm-function "FvwmStartFunc" that you will find in .fvwm2rc

Insert

+ I Exec rox --pinboard=MYPINBOARD

directly after the line for FvwmCommandS

That should work.

You have to put this command before /usr/bin/fvwm command in .xinitrc, because they got executed in linear order. So if you put it after fvwm command, it will be executed when you quit from fvwm. smile.gif

But the solution from Christoph will work nicely too.
