I'm using fvwm, and am having problems running applications under wine (specifically games). FVWM's default behavior is not to switch focus, so that the aterm window in which I issue the wine command stays the active window. This is troublesome, because now two different games have issues grabbing the keyboard (which makes them both largely unusable).

But here's the thing: for one of them (a relatively new game, called Etherium, that isn't even in the appdb at winehq yet), there is no window listed in the WM's equivalent of a taskbar. So even though the game is drawing to the root window and running fullscreen, any keyboard keypresses show up in the aterm underneath it.

How do I fix this behavior? The game doesn't show up on fvwm's alt-tab menu, so I can't switch to it.

Cheers,

EE
