Its handy to be able to drag a maximised window "out of the way" to see/work on another window behind it. Perhaps when a move is initiated, jwm could check to see if the window is maximised, and if it is "restore" it automatically before performing the move.

I'm still waiting for the 24x24 sub menu icons Confused

JWM displays what you tell it to, it's just the Puppy templtes that are crap:
Code:
<RootMenu label="Menu" labeled="false" height="24" onroot="3">

Code:
<Menu label="Desktop" icon="x24.png" height="24">

It's all the same to JWM.

Hmmm ...

I'm sorry but I haven't much free time lately to mess with puppy/jwm/cups. My work is moving me around a bit too much. I'll see if I can do some sort of an update anytime soon.

PostPosted: Fri 10 Apr 2009, 16:19    Post subject: Disappearing Conky <Solved>  

<Edit> Got it. The conky config file is /etc/conky/conky.conf and the option "own_window_type override" keeps the conky onscreen. I don't know if it would have any negative side effects.


Hey Patriot, i hope you are getting some free time to play. 01Micko thought you might have an answer to this: Conky disappears when Rox is managing the desktop in NewYearsPup and also in Wow's Unamed Pup (I installed your jwm myself in that one.

Patriot fixed an issue similar to this with Conky we had in Pwidgets... he added a new option "own_window_type roxdesktop". I don't know what he did but maybe we could ask him?


I couldn't find a Conky config file but I do remember seeing this in the Conky docs on conky.sourceforge; so i will look there but I would appreciate any hints you might have. thanks.

@joewing / Patriot: Any plans for implementing horizontal gradients in a future build?

How about rounded corners for the menus?

How do I get rid of rounded corners (Unlike most here I dont like it)?

Can they be disabled in the configuration file.

Thanks

@playdaz
Sorry I missed your question. Great to see that you have it solved. The conky binary used in pwidgets is patched specifically for rox-desktop. You can get the binary from pwidgets pet (just extract it out). Specifying own_desktop_window roxdesktop will make conky "attach" itself to rox-desktop window. Go over to the pwidgets thread if you want to ask more about conky.

@synth
I did plan for it but couldn't get to do it right now. Work schedule is limiting my focus. Rounded menu is easy enough but only if time permitting. If joe doesn't implement it then I may ... but only in due time ....

@rusi
They're hardcoded into the program. The only two option is between the jwm-enhancements or the jwm-for-purists right now. So, kindly look on the first page of this thread for the jwm-for-purists pet which mainly deals with bug-fixing.

Hey guys, I just wondered if someone knows how to make amsn have a tray icon in jwm so it can be minimized to tray, or if this can be fixed somehow there's another feature for someone to implement. Smile

I have a better idea, what about adding option for right click on titlebar to minimize any window to tray?

Does JWM support gradient menus?

When I specify a gradient color for the background,the menu turns gray Sad

Before:
Code:
<MenuStyle>
   <Font>DejaVu Sans-11</Font>
   <Foreground>#DBD4C1</Foreground>
   <Background>gray30</Background>
   <ActiveForeground>gray20</ActiveForeground>
   <ActiveBackground>#FCE08A:#AC510B</ActiveBackground>
</MenuStyle>


After:
Code:
<MenuStyle>
   <Font>DejaVu Sans-11</Font>
   <Foreground>#DBD4C1</Foreground>
   <Background>#1CE0DA:#0C510B</Background>
   <ActiveForeground>gray20</ActiveForeground>
   <ActiveBackground>#FCE08A:#AC510B</ActiveBackground>
</MenuStyle>


I'd like to have gradient <background> *and* gradient <active background> at the same time. Is that possible with the latest JWM snapshot?

thanks for this, it's a lot of fun!

i might be missing something, but when i launch apps [such as rxvt] they always launch opaque, and i have to change them

is there a way to get any or all of them to launch transparent?

EDIT - i figured this out, one of my problems was that setting the bg in rxvt to black makes it impossible to be transparent Embarassed

also, this works better:

Code:
   <Group>
      <Name>ROX-Filer</Name>
      <Name>rxvt</Name>
      <Option>translucent</Option>
   </Group>
