Focus on Click or anything else besides Focus on mouse.


I am running Slackware 8.1

I am not using KDE for the GUI (thought I wish we were(not in my control)).
I believe x11 is the application that is creating the GUI (not sure, but if you have an idea on how I can verify this... please shoot me an email)

Whats pissing me off is the Focus-follows-mouse thing. I would like to enable click to focus, but I can not find a configuration that would change this.

I have changed the KDE Config, but its not KDE.
I am running this on a company provided installation, so who knows what they are using for the xwindows gui.

Any Ideas.... Even if its a long shot, Please forward to me!

Thanks Guys!

X11 is the underlying graphics system. Just about All GUI desktops and programs run on top of it (including kde). If you aren't using kde, then you need to discover just what desktop environment or window manager you're running, and hopefully find a mouse setting configuration for it.

Talking Why so many config files? .fvwm95rc

Being a noob in the Linux world I had no idea the .fvwm95rc file existed, but thats where my problem lies.

About 49 Lines down in that file

#Style "*" ClickToFocus
Style "*" FocusFollowsMouse

I swap the REM's out and I'm good to go!

The file was located in the root directory and was hidden.
