Sub_title: (in the eye candy section)

Perhaps this will have some company if any other denizens have offerings for the fine pekwm window manager.

This one's for pekwm 0.1.11 (may or may not be compatible with older versions such as 0.1.6?) screenshot 74k - even though pk seems more suited to kybd input, 0.1.11 has some nice theme options for maus-ing (and/or various combinations depending on one's setup and prefs - a local manual is a very good idea to get the most out of pekwm's interface), for instance a more expanded l/r/midclick is supported on window-buttons now (even though I kind of miss the scrollwheel-rollup of other wms, it's handy if you're button-oriented). No rounded corners and borders are minimal since keeping it fairly simple/compact is a good thing, imo. As far as I know, the button-decor is original (but I couldn't get menu 'arrows' to display nice, so there's a rude workaround) Wink

Tried the (dpup) dotpet of 111 mentioned elsewhere after I'd compiled my own in a more-or-less 'regular' p431 (mine is a bit fat since I'm new to that and don't know much at all about stripping&etc - the dpup version didn't fly for me but may be fine for others). Link to that thread in the additional software section.

Sub_title: new-ish pekpup theme

This one is a slight mod of a theme originally put together by 01micko (from a work by adriano). The buttons were from ttuuxxx's icewm work if I recall. I merely did a trifling cleanup (no buttons where not needed) and mushed it into pekwm 1.11's mouse-ing structure for the buttons.

min-bar + leftclick = iconizes window (to frame menu which is midclick on desktop, or..)
min-bar + rightclick = shades window (no shading with scrollwheel)

max-bar + leftclick = maximizes window
max-bar + rightclick = max width only
max-bar + midclick = max vertical only

paw = g'night

a bit larger pic is here, fresh pekwm 1.12 in Macpup 511..

yep, the text-length in menu sometimes over-expands on hover Neutral
(post a fix or pm me if you do)
