Description Tony Su 2018-02-11 23:36:17 UTC
Since the change in Tumbleweed to manage window managers using update-alternatives, most window manager seem to be configured with alternatives but it looks like fvwm2 was overlooked.

The following does what is needed although someone may wish to modify the priority (my setting 30)

update-alternatives --install /usr/share/xsessions/default.desktop default.xsession.desktop /usr/share/xsessions/fvm2.desktop 30

This also needs to be done for Leap 15.0.
