PostPosted: Sat 30 Dec 2006, 23:32    Post subject:  JWM Themes  

I have been playing around with JWM themes this week and I have made dotpups of three themes. I will include screenshots so you know what to expcet before you download them. After you download each dotpup, just click on the installer file (click_to_install-JWM-xxxxxx). You will then need to manually change the JWM theme and wallpaper. The new files will be installed to the correct locations. Feel free to delete the folder and dotpup once you have installed the files.

If your themeslist is/gets broken, all you have to do is edit /root/.jwm/themes/themeslist to be sure there is one filename on each line.

OK, here it goes!

Human Theme





Forest Theme




Black Theme



I hope to make a few more if time permits.[/i]

Hi Rhino!

I have several window managers installed on Puppy actually. I love to experiment when I have the time and play around. Used to be that Xfce was my all-time favourite but lately I've swung back around to IceWM now that one of the others here came up with the GTK "plugin" (themeselector05.pup in PSI).

But I did download these and the next time I'm in Puppy, sometime tomorrow night, I'm really looking forward to installing these! Those three themes you've made have to be the BEST I've seen to date for JWM, a window manager which is rather limited in scope for being able to made more attractive (IMHO) because of its being so lightweight.

You've done a magnificient job! I'm looking forward to more! Thank you so much!

Amicalement,

Eyes-Only
"L'Peau-Rouge"

JWM-Vu Theme

I patterned this after some of the screenshots I had seen of Vista. Of course, I can't do the shaded menu bars and transparency of Vista, but it uses some of the same color schemes in a nice small size.

Let me know if there are any problems! Thanks.

I have want to have shadows on your screen with JWM and Puppy 2.10 or greater you need to use Xcompmgr-1.1.3.pup. You must be running Xorg rather than XVESA. You will need to append your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with the code:

Code:
Section "Extensions"
      Option "Composite" "Enable"
      Option "RENDER" "Enable"
EndSection


Then restart x.

Finally open a console and type in
Code:
killall xcompmgr
  xcompmgr -c -l -14 -t -14 -r 15 -o .7 2>/dev/null&


The lovely shadow will appear on your windows.

I only have 2D acceleration and it seems to work fine. I'm not sure about its stablity with the latest versions of JWM, but so far so good Smile[/code][/url]

okay, i know it's been explained before, but you Gotta tell us (those of us that use the dotpup maker) how you did that! where did you put the folder to make the dotpup?

JWM-xxxxx is the theme file settings ----> /root/.jwm/themes/
xxxxxxx.jpg is the wallpaper ---->/usr/share/backgrounds/

The executable edits the themeslist in /root/.jwm/themes/ to include the name of the theme so you can choose it from the menu in the jwm configuration application.

If you are interested in how to make the dotpup:

I included the three files in a folder and them dragged them to the dotpup maker (Dotpup-Wizard-06) and then went through the wizard which did the real work.

As far as the script goes it is as follows:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
cp suede.jpg /usr/share/backgrounds/
cp jwm-human /root/.jwm//themes/
echo "jwm-human Puppy_Human" >> /root/.jwm/themes/themeslist


I am not a programmer and if you can provide some insight into how to improve the functionality of the script it would be greatly appreciated.

AHHH, that's different than what i thought- so you have to manually run the script to install?

i think there's a way to get the dotpup creation wizard to automatically install files to folders OTHER than /usr/local/yournamehere and i forget where i read the instructions... maybe they come in a readme with the wizard. i can't think of any improvement on your script tho, it looks fine to me. MAYBE change "cp" to "cp -i" if you want it to ASK before overwriting.

Yes, there is. Here are MU's instructions to me to achieve that with my Planner port:

MU wrote:
This is, because it did not install to the final location.
To create a dotpup of the final files, do this:
create
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/

Copy there all the installed files, like
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/usr/local/bin/planner
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/usr/local/lib/planner/storage-modules/libstorage-mrproject-1.so

and so on.
Then create a script to start planner:
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/run-planner


Code:

#!/bin/bash
planner &


And copy a nice small icon there (16x16 pixel):
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/icon.xpm

Finally drag the folder
/root/planner
on the dotpup-wizard, to create the dotpup.

The dotpup then will install the files from
/root/planner/FILESYSTEM/
to "/"
And the files directly in /root/planner/ to /usr/local/planner/

Of course, wherever you see "planner" you can substitute {yourname}

Hope that helps.

really great work, Rhino.
If Muppy was not based on Icewm, I would add them to it.

Concerning translucency:
this does not work for the JWM-menu as far as I know.
Other windowmanagers like newer versions of fluxbox supporting that use their own inbuilt functions for xcompmgr.

Rox 2.5 might work with a trick.
run "xprop" to get the window-ID of the backgroundpicture.
Then run transset windowid (or similar, try transset --help).
If that works, I might write a Puppybasic-program, that automates these steps.
Tomorrow, as I must sleep now.

Here is dotpup with transset:

JWM-Haze



A simple theme...somewhat similar to HazeWM. to make Haze look a little more like the real HazeWM, you might want to move the tray up to the top of the screen and make it a little larger, but going to:

Menu...Control Panel...JWM Configuration...Taskbar...Tray Placement...TOP. Then maybe change the height to TALL. I'm trying to figure out how to make the theme do that automatically, but not quite there yet. If I figure it out, I will post another version of this theme.

PostPosted: Wed 03 Jan 2007, 16:59    Post subject: Auto Change Background  

How do you modify the background "bg-jwm-XXX" files in /root/.jwm/themes to work with the new rox2.5, that's in Puppy2.13? I know that clicking on roxrestart,sh in /usr/local/puppybackground/resource does it (I made a link in Customise Menu). after you have dragged and dropped the ROX-background.jpg from /root/Choices on to the rox Set backdrop. But, how to automate this from JWM configuration with bg-jwm-XXX. Does anyone know, I may have missed this somewhere.

I don't have a solution, but if you figure it out, please post it here and let me know. I would be very interested in making the themes that I made install AND set the theme upon installation.
