       FVWM-Crystal: Tips & tricks

       Here  you  can find some	random tips for	the first run of FVWM-Crystal.
       I assume, that you already installed the	package	(if not, look  in  IN-
       STALL  file instead), and you are now inside your brand new desktop en-

	      o	 Right click on	the desktop opens new terminal window.

	      o	 Right click on	the Close button will minimize	a  window.  To
		 bring	it back, click on the icon of the program in the icons
		 panel,	or double-click	on the thumbnail placed	on the desktop
		 (if you have a	layout with thumbnails enabled).

	      o	 When you start	FVWM-Crystal for the first time, there will be
		 an automatically generated panel with applications  installed
		 on  your system.  Clicking on an icon of selected application
		 with your RMB will launch this	application; clicking with LMB
		 will open a menu with other similar apps.

	      o	 Clicking  and	holding	a mouse	button on the titlebar buttons
		 will result in	opening	of a small menu, which contains	avail-
		 able commands for this	button.	 Letter	in brackets indicates,
		 which function	will be	ececuted when you click	on the certain
		 button	 using	your  left  (L), right (R) or middle (M) mouse

	      o	 If a wallpaper	was not	set at startup,	 make  sure  that  you
		 have  'habak'	or using main menu (it may by a	little slow at
		 the first time, because miniatures have to be generated).

	      o	 You can change	a wallpaper, window decorations	and panel/menu
		 colorsets  using  the	main  menu  (a	desk-like  icon). Your
		 changes  will	be  automatically  remembered  for  the	  next
