FVWM2 uses "layers". A window in a higher layer is always drawn over a window in a lower layer. There is also a StaysOnTop flag which puts a window into the topmost layer (layer 6 by default). Normal windows are in layer 4 by default, and will be drawn beneath layer 6 windows. My .fvwm2rc file has this entry: Style "xarclock" Layer 5,NoTitle, ...

This answer is not the most-specific for the user's question Please see my 2nd answer. I am leaving this here because it addresses the more general issue. Per the comments to your original post, you need (1) a terminal emulator which supports bracketed paste and (2) corresponding support for whatever is running in the terminal, ie, vim, bash, zsh. Terminal ...

If I've understood the question correctly: A workstation is running X, and user $USER is logged in User $ADMIN wants to start an X client on that machine, and connect to the X server of $USER. If you have control of the X session's startup, you should be able to arrange (perhaps in $USER's .xsession) to give access to $ADMIN using xhost: xhost ...

I did a quick search on my Debian stable machine, and with the exception of xroach and oneke, they are all available with the names you gave. However, the correct name for oneke is oneko, and it is available in Debian with that name. What is your distribution? Doing a little searching produces the Debian bug report Debian Bug report 158188: xroach: not ...

This is easy to do with xmodmap. You can use a keysym directive to change the keysyms associated with a key. This affect all the keys that are currently sending this keysym with any modifier combination. For normal printable characters, the four keysyms are the ones for the bare key, the key with Shift, the key with AltGr and the key with AltGr+Shift ...

An X server without a display driver would not be able to display anything. This exists, for example Xvfb, which “displays” to a memory buffer. This has its uses, such as to perform automated processing (e.g. testing) involving programs with a graphical user interface, but you won't see anything with it, by definition. If you meant that you don't want to ...

You may try to use loginctl list-sessions to get the list of sessions, and then use loginctl show-session -p Display -p Active <session ID> on each of these to get the X11 display number associated with the currently active session. Something like this (in bash): TARGET_DISPLAY=() while read id uid user seat; do while IFS='=' read property value; ...

UPDATE I found a workaround after reading these bug reports: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=785782 and https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=724731 In my case the workaround was installing lightdm as display manager. sudo aptitude install lightdm This also prompts you to choose it as default display manager. However this ...

There are two issues here why does firefox need RANDR and why does your virtual xserver not support it. Let's start with little background on RANDR, it is primarily used for screen resizing and configuring multiple monitor setups. From a firefox perspective the assumption that all Xservers support all extensions seems to be a bad idea. I would file a ...

You can accoplish that with custom XKB map. I recommend you to dump the current map with xkbcomp $DISPLAY dump.xkb, edit it and load it with xkbcomp newmap.xkb $DISPLAY. Dump file is pretty large and has a lot of superfluous information. Easiest way to go about the editing is to look up how the altgr is used in your current map. It's usually ISO_LEVEL3 ...

Well, as current I mean active Display of a XOrg Server. Remember that we can have more than one XOrg Server running and they can be multi-head, what make the things harder to manipulate. The other important note is that the DISPLAY variable in some cases cannot be accessed (eg. systemd). After some discussion in commandlinefu, I got this result: for p in ...

You need to make the AltGr key send the Alt_R or Meta_R keysym, and to associate these keysyms with the Alt modifier (which for you is mod1). Put the following lines in your .Xmodmap file (assuming a PC keyboard): keycode 108 = Alt_R Meta_R add Mod1 = Alt_L Alt_R Meta_L Meta_R That's if you want to configure this manually. There's probably an XKB option ...

Method that I used in the end: Run Xfig in its own desktop under TigerVNC server. Connect to the VNC server with a VNC client that allows scaling. To simplify the process, I created a tool to run arbitrary applications scaled up, Vncdesk. A simple command such as vncdesk 2 starts the server and connects a viewer. Closing the application or the viewer ...
