Sorry, Mu. Well, after sending you that message I went to the JWM configuration and pressed "Or, apply current GTK theme to JWM" and that fixed it. But every time I turn on the computer the problem returns, and I have to visit the JWM configuration again.

The solution you gave me of changing the number 2 to 6 or higher, didn't work.

Another thing, do you know a way to keep the eyes always on top? Without clicking the taskbar of tray to indicate it?

Thank you. (I don't know exactly how this works, please forgive me)

You refer to this thread:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=284230
It is better to stay in one thread next time, so that one can look up, what we talk about.

Here is the message you wrote me:

Hi:

How are you? Sorry to disturb you, but I have a question. I installed the "eyes", and I've been using them for about 3 days. I placed a shortcut in the startup so that when I turn on my computer they appear. Well, I turn on and turn off the computer many times a day, but only 2 times the eyes have been without the square, you know, the window, with the red X the name of the program, minimize, maximize, and close. And I don't understand why only two times they appeared without the window. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you very much. Greetings. (The program is Xeyes)


Here is my reply:

Hi,
edit the file
/usr/bin/xeyesnoborder

The line
shell("sleep 2")

Replace the 2 with a higher value, like 6 or 10.
I think this should fix it.
Please post such questions in the forum only, the private messages I just use for administration, like managing uploads.

Thanks, Mark



There is an option in /root/.jwmrc to set a window to a layer 12, which is always on top.
I have no JWM here at moment, so just can refer to the documentation.
I can tryit tomorrow myself, if I find time.

Mark

ok, you must edit:

/etc/xdg/templates/_root_.jwmrc

Add there:

Code:
<Group>
<Class>xeyes</Class>
<Name>xeyes</Name>
<Option>noborder</Option>
<Option>notitle</Option>
<Option>layer:12</Option>
<Option>nolist</Option>
<Option>sticky</Option>
</Group>


Add it after the other "group" entries.

Then type in a consolewindow:
fixmenus -force

Then restart JWM or better restart X.

You still can move the eyes, if you press the ALT key, while dragging them with the mouse!

I attach a screenshot.
It uses the enhanced JWM from here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39162
It runs in Newyearspup02rc7.
