Description Henrik Hellerstedt 2002-05-03 07:32:18 UTC

This the ebuild script for the OpenLook Virtual Window Manager, and old but
imho still very functional windowmanager.

From the README:

Olvwm (OPEN LOOK virtual window manager) is an ICCCM compliant window manager
supplied for use with the XView toolkit.  It is derived from olwm, the
OPEN LOOK window manager supplied with the XView release.  This version of
olvwm is based on version 3 of the XView release.

files/olvwm (for /etc/X11/Sessions)

This file is installed by the olvwm-4.0.ebuild script into /etc/X11/Sessions
so it shows up in various X Display Managers.

This file is for the olvwm/files dir and is installed by olvwm-4.0.ebuld script

into /usr/share/olvwm and is the default root menu.

This patch will be applied by the olvwm-4.0.ebuild script to the olvwm-4.0
source, it changes the default directory in olvwm from /usr/openwin to
/usr/share/olvwm, so olvwm itself can find the openwin-menu (and other things)

It also changes the default built in menu.
Comment 5 Henrik Hellerstedt 2002-05-03 07:46:50 UTC
Depends on the previously submitten ebuildscript olgx-1.34.ebuild

who want's to commit this into tree ?
Comment 11 MATSUU Takuto (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-08-29 16:38:19 UTC
I think this ebuild is not needed because x11-libs/xview contains olwm and olvwm.
Comment 12 Daniel Tourde 2003-09-02 01:02:28 UTC

I built it yesterday (1st Sept 2003) without problems. It seems to work very well indeed. I only have one comment:
Isn't it possible to add a startup file such that I get the possibility via gdm (or xdm) to choose OpenWin (As I can choose between Gnome and KDE for instance)?

Best regards

Comment 13 Charles Goodwin 2003-10-07 09:54:21 UTC
Is this going to be added to portage or, if it is contained in xview, can
it be marked 'invalid' and closed?
Comment 14 Heinrich Wendel (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-10-12 08:25:45 UTC
it's is contained in xview, we could split it up, but that would be another
bug report -> close
Comment 15 Shevek 2003-10-13 03:54:06 UTC
As (probably) one of the main olvwm users, I'm happy with it being in xview.
It's worth checking out that it fits into the WM-management scheme (as per
comments 2, 3, 4) sometime. Why has no recent WM had any decent viewport
support? Mad.
