I was just wondering how I would disable the xload applet from my taskbar. As I only have 64MB of actual RAM, I'm trying to cut down on as many processes as possible. Also is there a way of editing what icons are displayed next to the menu button on the taskbar?

I'm using Lucid Puppy if that helps.

Open /root/.jwmrc-tray in a text editor and comment out or delete this section, then restart jwm.
Code:
      <Swallow name="xload" width="32">
         xload -nolabel -update 1 -bg "#BCBAB5" -fg red -hl white
      </Swallow>

Yes, you can either manually edit /root/.jwmrc-tray, or there should be a gui in recent puppies to do it. In my slightly older puppy it is at:
Menu-Desktop-JWM configuration-Application launch buttons in tray

What is wrong by typing in an editor?
To be safe, make a backup of the file first.

There's nothing wrong with writing in an editor, I just wanted to make sure that was the way to do it before I did it.
