FvwmOsd - display an on-screen display (like the one on many TVs) on your X display.
FvwmOsd should be spawned by fvwm(1) for normal functionality.
Run this module from your StartFunction:
AddToFunc StartFunction + I Module FvwmOsd
Then you can send commands to FvwmOsd, e.g.:
AddToFunc HelloWoldFunction + I SendToModule FvwmOsd string@test: Hello World! + I SendToModule FvwmOsd color@test: red + I SendToModule FvwmOsd display@test:
FvwmOsd is a fvwm module written in Perl. It lets you display an on-screen display (like the one on many TVs) on your X display.
FvwmOsd is organized in different channels each of which you can configure and use independently of the others.
Copy FvwmOsd in your fvwm module directory, e.g.:
sudo cp FvwmOsd $(fvwm-config -m)/

SendToModule FvwmOsd display@test:
