Re: fvwm2: button functions missing...

That's strange: one common reason for the buttons not working is if
you have Num-Lock turned on. But this causes all the buttons to stop
working. (This is due to the way that X11R6 treats Num-Lock as a
modifier, when previously it used to be just a key.)

Which .fvwm2rc are you using; one in your home directory, or the
system fall-back one, or maybe one of the ones from
/usr/doc/examples/fvwm2 ?

Did fvwm2 generate the .fvwm2rc automatically from your previous
.fvwmrc when you first installed fvwm2?

Please sent me your ~/.fvwm2rc in private email, and verify that the
following files have the correct checksums using md5sum:

f0e435e9aa405b7a8953f06731248d96  /etc/X11/fvwm2/system.fvwmrc
1b3f5c0059dcc294bd156b1b7febeba6  /usr/X11R6/bin/fvwm2

Ditto, can you send me your ~/.fvwmrc
