Looks like that theme assumes certain things about the tray appearance that are not correct in Puplite5... and when it doesn't see those things, it aborts, at least for the tray. So the tray is breaking the theme.

The theme consists of three files: a pair of images to display in the theme-chooser ("Choose a JWM theme" w/in the JWM Config Manager), and a single file called "Slate-jwmrc" that only addresses the color of the tray.

A complete theme, this is not.

Figured it out. The second-to-last line in /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc needs to be commented out and then everything works. That line invokes a file called ".jwmrc-personal". I will post the corrected file later -- real life is calling me at the moment.

EDIT: line 244 in the file, /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc contains:
Code:
<include>/root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal</include>

Comment this out and the problem is fixed.

I will make a second post with the altered file.

Here is the "corrected" (=altered) file, which allows the tray to be themed. Just use it to overwrite the original file at /etc/xdg/templates and it will work.
_root_.jwmrc.gz
Description  REMOVE THE ".gz" -- IT'S A TEXT FILE. Replaces the original file at /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc to allow theming the tray.

Hello, starhawk.

It's a bit abstract like this. Would you have a picture?
Thanks in advance.

Bonjour musher0! (One of maybe five words of French I know... silly American education didn't teach me merde... Wink Embarassed )

Before the corrected file: the tray looks like the one in sc0ttman's screenshots (First post or first few posts) no matter what JWM/GTK theme is applied.

After the corrected file... well, here's what I did Very Happy --> http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=620034#620034

One can apply ANY of the JWM themes in the JWM theme thread here OR from the site --> [url]puppylin.freehostia.com/jwm.htm[/url] ...which I believe is dejan555's website for this stuff. After the corrected file is applied, ALL JWM themes will work fine, and theme/skin the tray correctly.

As a side note, if the theme does not have a menu-button image inside of it, you'll have to hunt one down or use Puplite's stock menu-button. That's a theme problem, not a Puplite problem.

Let me know if you have further questions.

@ sc0ttmsn

Hi,

I loaded PupLite on a USB stick and am running it on my Dell Mini 1012 netbook. Nice job on this, runs great. I am having a miner wallpaper issue but so far all is well.

I may have to keep this loaded on the stick (dog house? Laughing ).

Is there any way to edit the menus so that I can delete all entrees that are are already in the control panel?

Nice job to who-ever made the PuppyCP. Great job, it should be loaded on all pups.

-John

just move the /usr/share/applications/*.desktop files of the apps you dont want listed to another dir, and they will be removed from the menu next time you refresh it... but you can put them back if later if you want...

And radky made the control panel, called PupControl.. The latest versions probably dont work well in Puplite, but there are later versions, if u wanna check them out (1.9 is the latest the MIGHT work): http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=61961

Thanks for the help.

Move the files? Shocked OK, I thought it was a text file to edit. I will make a new file in the same dir and see if that works.

I will just hold onto the PuppyCP that it came with untill you get around to makeing a new version of PupLite. Very Happy I excel at braking things......

Hey, just thought of something.

1. Is there a pup of BaCon that can be downloaded?

2. What would be the best way to install this to an 8GB SD card? I tried Unibootin but it will not load. I plan to run this on my Dell mini.

Thanks for the help -John
