Sub_title: ...for those who prefer the default WM
 

After I created the IceWM Themes Exchange, the occasional poster was moved to ask "Where is the JWM Themes Exchange?" In answer to that, and on account of some new JWM themes being posted by cb88 and others, I have created this thread for JWM devotees.

To get the ball rolling, I have taken a JWM theme created by Tom at the JWM developer forum, and given it the WhoDo treatment. Here is a screenshot of the result. Remember, this is JWM!

Why overwrite the themeslist? That will destroy any changes that is in the original rendering prior installed themes history. It seems that if the themeslist is appended to is far safer. Instead of a pet package make it just a zip with no themeslist file in it.

whodo I noticed that you have removed the gradient menu is there areason for that? readability? personally I like the gradient menu and it could be altered (change the font?) if readability needs work. the standard menu looks out of place in the vista theme IMO.

since jwm themes are just simple txt files perhaps a compete jwm theme designer could be whiped up in bash and gtkdialog3? a color selector would be essential... if that could be included in rawpup and TS CE then it would ease much of the "I hate jwm craze" not that I personally dislike jwm at all. Although that does make icewm more popular jwm devserves it's due as well...

also the theme gui could manage theme installation

The dotpet format and the included themeslist was intended for users who haven't added to JWM themes before. The warning is there for those who have. I wanted to make it easier for those who didn't know how to do it.

You can unpack a dotpet at the CLI by using the command:
Code:
# pet2tgz filename


Hope that helps

Entirely accidental. It was late, I was tired, and I failed to notice an extra < in front of the <menustyle> tag. It just ignores the vista menu style and gives the default. I'll repack and upload later.

I think you probably have me confused with tronkel. My coding days, poor as they were, are long behind me now. I can hack around in what someone else has created, but it hurts my aging brain too much to start from scratch. Razz Good idea, though. Don't we also have a Control Panel for JWM somewhere in recent history? I think it was dvw86 (sp?) who created it. Maybe that could be modified for the task?

Welcome, Tom. What about attaching a tgz file with your theme code so others can install it?

With the advent of JWM 2.x, Puppy's default WM can be very attractive thanks to guys like you who are willing to show their talent.

Cheers

Thanks, Mark. Repackaged and uploaded repackaged version to original post. Should be ok now.

Cheers

Thanks; yes it did.
The only file I exstracted from that vista:P theme was the /root/.jwm/jwm-vista file. I then added it to my own themeslist file and it works great, Gradients and all.
Thanks

No Kidding!
Better yet, maybe the post itself should be deleted. No theme attached just some oversized 1024x768 jpg. Razz
