Subject: fvwm2: menu icons use too many colors in 8-bit mode
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.4
It is necessary for me to use 8-bit mode and I prefer fvwm2.
However, many packages install menu icons that are very nifty
and colorful. I would be nice if there was some kind of run-time
method to limit the number of colors available to icons. I noticed
the programs in /usr/doc/fvwm2 for generating a reduced-color icon
set. But many of the menu icons have hard coded paths so just changing
the PixmapPath to point to a reduced color set won't work. Clearly
this is not really fvwm2's fault, but it seems like fvwm2 is where
a work-around would have to go.
For now, I am simply running a sed script that strips out all the icons
in /etc/X11/fvwm2/menudefs.hook. Perhaps such a script could be run
at postinstall time to generate a 8bit-menudefs.hook file and the
appropriate menudefs.hook file could be chosen at runtime?
thanks for listening,
