@jasper

Joe answered with:-
Quote:
The window placement has changed somewhat, so I would expect that some windows might open in different locations. Are the applications being started with a "-geometry" option?


I must admit that I haden't seen this mentioned in the changelog, else I would have mentioned it.

Can you try to work it out with sessions help?

I have put the problem on joe's system on hold until needed.

regards

@jasper: It seems that the change has happend to fix the problems relating to windows dissapearing off screen.
Details from joe are:
Quote:

The relevant commits that would have changed the behavior are 3ee8ddc and 4dd7c84. The problem these commits solve relates to the placement of windows that would go off the screen if placed where JWM would normally place a window.

Commit 3ee8ddc makes it so JWM correctly accounts for the window border size.

Commit 4dd7c84 makes it so JWM doesn't revert to the upper left-most position on the screen if the placement algorithm fails (instead, only the direction of the overflow is reset). In addition, 4dd7c84 constrains newly mapped windows to the area of the screen that JWM is willing to use even if a program specifies its own position.


So it looks like we are stuck with them as it's fixing other problems.

---------------------------------

@all: I have uploaded a test build of v777 for your testing.

If all is ok after some user testing, I intend using this for the next release version in about seven days so can I have responses in the thread with the puppy's you have used or tested it against listed please.

I shall also build a x86_64 as previously promised Embarassed now I have found which box the Fatdog x86 partition is on! Confused

regards

EDIT: 785 will NOT be uploaded tonight. Barryk had found a problem relating to geany which joe had fixed, however it's broken again.

Hi scsijon,

Thank you for all the trouble you went to in following up my
observation and advising why Joe made the change for our
greater general good.

My regards

Although joe is up to version 790 and I have built a few since v777, problems have been found that don't make me confident enough to be willing to release new test versions.

We shall have to be a little patient.

JWM 805 works perfectly in Puppy Lucid - no errors to reports...

Not sure if its the newer jwmconfig file or JWM805 - but my modifications to the tray were over-written - went to backup to restore.

Cheers
Martin

Hi scsijon,

My Wine/Windows clock has acquired a green border using v 805 Test.

This is new since V 777 Test.

My regards

PS Just to confirm - I have the same problem that session describes in his post below.

Taskbar functionality is broken in v805, that is to say, the last minimized window will "stick" in the taskbar. This in turn disables keybindings.

Hi scsijon ,

I'm sorry to report that neither the clock nor the taskbar
errors are fixed here using Precise 5.6 and v815 Test.

yup, and it seems to have tested ok to all my listed problems to test against, as well.

Been stable now with joe for a week to, so unless problems ocurr from others it WILL be our new release version.

Now, back to that pesky doorway!
