Subject description: Create your own JWM theme in less than 5 minutes
 

Hi,

Useful for theme lovers...try it, you'll like it!

Dependencies :
- rgb2hexscript in bash only, no binary (included in pet)
- ffmpeg with x11grab or avconv with x11grab


Version 1.7.5: only change how functions work
Version 1.7.4: bugfix: get correct preveiw pics when tray height is changed
Version 1.7.3: Tidy up, add more tooltips & warnings. This will be the last version for now, unless something come up
Version 1.7.2: Fully compatible with precise 5.7.1, slacko 5.7, tahr 6.0 (as long as jwm taskbartray swallows xload). Might work with quirky 6.0. It will fail to grab taskbar pic if in autohide mode and/or if the taskbar is not on top or bottom
Version 1.7.1:
- Bugfix: fc-list compatibility when edit mode
- New: will use avconv instead of mmpeg if not available
Version 1.7: replace binary rgb2hex to a bash script called rgb2hexscript

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45397
I previously had it in the 'noarch' repo, but realised that it has a x86 binary executable in it, so have moved it to 'common'.

Recently, L18L has internationalised the script, so I have created a new PET, and bumped the version from 1.5 to 1.5.1 (5K):
http://distro.ibiblio.org/quirky/pet_packages-common/jwmthememaker-1.5.1-x86.pet

Version 1.6.1: fix fc-list compatibility. Fully working for precise 5.7.1 and slacko 5.7, also with fc-list of tahr 6.0 (but tahr needs proper ffmpeg to make jwmthememaker create preview pics, other than that it works)
Version 1.6 (updated in precise 5.7.1)
- BUGFIX: Edit function actually was not working before (nobody complaints though)
- NEW!!!! AUTOMAGICALLY CREATES PREVIEW PICS FOR THE THEME SWITCHER (using ffmpeg, will fail to grab taskbar pic if in autohide mode and/or if the taskbar is not on top or buttom)
Version 1.5:
- Total Overhaul - now the gui and all functions are in one file only
- ABILITY TO EDIT A SAVED THEME, AND ONLY FOR THEMES MADE BY JWMTHEMEMAKER

Updated to v 1.4 - added: pop-up box background & text colors, border outline color, tooltips (info of usage of entries & buttons)
Updated to v 1.3 - delete a theme & instant apply functions
Updated to v 1.2-1 - bugfix: sort & filter duplicated font names
Updated to v 1.2 - added - Font & Font Size Configuration too
Updated to v 1.1 - added - button to go to JWM Config Manager


When you've collected say 100 themes, you might want to use Desktop Display/Themes Profile Manager, available here
And you may want to use GTK Theme Maker

I already made the JWM theme maker to perform changing of fonts and font size. But i still have to type in font names manually.

I need a file that lists REAL FONT NAMES, not the .ttf names. for example:

Maybe put them in /tmp/fontlist.txt;
monofonto
Dejavu Sans
ionic charge
pdingobats
arial

Help, anybody? thanks.

maybe using some cli utility for listing fonts? xfontsel, xlsfonts? Don't know if any of them are in puppy by default, I'm not @ home atm.

Thanks guys, enjoy!

Dejan, thanks for the announcement, and yes, if you have a lot of themes already, you need to use Desktop Display/Theme Profile Manager

Cheers

Apparent problem with your new theme maker 1.2. No matter which menu item I choose, when the Xdialog box pops up and I try and choose a color it closes Xdialog without allowing me to change anything. Also, there are no font names listed under fonts.
Other than that I think this is a great idea. I've tried making my own jwm themes manually in the past and it's kind of tedious. This speeds things up alot. I can see this evolving and adding new life to a great window manager whose only drawback was the eye candy factor.
