My setup is somewhat complex. It depends not just on .fvwm2rc, but on various Perl programs I've developed.

Do keep in mind that I didn't really design any of this for public consumption--also, I haven't kept up with recent releases of Fvwm (I'm still running 2.5.12.), so it's possible a recent release could have broken something. With that in mind, you're welcome to download my config and experiment with it.

bubblemon is perhaps the cutest and cleverest dockapp ever conceived. Bubbles indicate processor activity, water level shows memory usage, and if you hover the mouse, the scene fades into a load graph. Run out of memory and go into heavy swap, and the water turns red. Being a geek with too much time on my hands, I actually wrote a malloc-forever program to see if it worked. It worked. (So did the OOM-killer :-)

Here are some miscellaneous theming aspects which are not elsewhere covered:
