I checked http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=39162 but 14 some pages?

I had better ask someone who knows the answer.

How do I put taskbar /traybar on the top of desktop like Gnome?

Open jwmrc-tray text file and change like;

<!-- Additional tray attributes: autohide, width, border, layer, layout -->
<Tray x="0" y="+1" height="32">


didn't work.


My plan is to change the tray into AtariST style. I had hard time finding AtariST TTF file.

Does anyone know where it is?

Here is my .jwmrc-tray file. I have my tasbar at the top, so you can see from the first line the syntax. Note also the second tray specified. This is an autohide vertical try full of launchers. Jwm is hugely customisable.

Code:
<JWM>
   <Tray  autohide="false" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="1" height="28" layer="1" valign="top">

      <!-- Additional TrayButton attribute: label -->
      <TrayButton icon="pc24.png">root:3</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton popup="" icon="configuration24.png">exec:/root/mymenu/myGtkMenu /root/mymenu/BaseMenu.txt</TrayButton>
      

      <!-- Additional Pager attributes; width, height -->
      <Pager/>

      <!-- Additional TaskList attribute: maxwidth -->
      <TaskList maxwidth="27"/>

      <Dock/>

      <!-- Additional Swallow attribute: height -->

   <!--   <Swallow name="blinky">
         blinkydelayed -bg "#DCDAD5"
      </Swallow> -->

   <!--   <Swallow name="xtmix-launcher">
         xtmix -launch
      </Swallow> -->

   <!--   <Swallow name="asapm">
         asapmshell -u 4
      </Swallow> -->

   <!--   <Swallow name="freememapplet" width="34">
         freememappletshell
      </Swallow> -->


      <Clock format="%H:%M">opera_calendar</Clock>
   </Tray>
   
      <!-- <Tray  autohide="true" insert="center" x="350" y="1" border="0" height="48" layer="6" valign="bottom"> -->
      <Tray  autohide="true" border="0" width="46" y="48" layout="vertical" layer="6" halign="left">

      <!-- Additional TrayButton attribute: label -->
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/home.png">exec:rox /root/</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/firefox.png">exec:firefox</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/opera.png">exec:opera</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/downloads.png">exec:rox /root/downloads/</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/edit.png">exec:geany</TrayButton>

      <!-- <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/gnumeric.png">exec:/root/mymenu/myGtkMenu /root/mymenu/account.txt</TrayButton> -->
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/gnumeric.png">exec:gnumeric /root/Dropbox/data/2012_13.gnumeric</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/ipod.png">exec:move.sh</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/freecell.png">exec:freecell</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/tkspider.png">exec:tkspider</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/pfind.png">exec:pfind</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/osmo.png">exec:osmo</TrayButton>
      <TrayButton label="" icon="/baricons/2012.png">exec:opera https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnKtlRbwqaJhdGphWWg5S3YzQmdSZ0JuMEQ1RTE5d1E&pli=1#gid=5</TrayButton>
      <!-- <TrayButton label="" popup="2012" icon="/baricons/2012.png">exec:opera https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AnKtlRbwqaJhdGphWWg5S3YzQmdSZ0JuMEQ1RTE5d1E&pli=1#gid=5</TrayButton> -->

   </Tray>

Yep, a simple jwmconfig to placement top is easy. Personally I like to tweak jwm's trays (and here some depends on jwm version if it's recent or oldish as to how the attributes go). Those x/y offset values are relatively minor and some things you just have to trial to see how they work - fortunately reloading jwm is really quick'n'painless so the results of editing can be seen easily.

Here's a short thread, somewhat related. Laughing 14pp is almost terse compared to some of the dev-threads (I recall that jwm renaissance well)...

dunno what AtariST style looks like - got an example? The font I think I've seen hereabouts .. maybe in a 'fun fonts' package? You could probably slick up a whole jwm theme if it's not too strange/illegible

Thank you. I checked "How to customize ROX with two panels?" topic.

Fonts have been found.

I attached a screenshot of Atari desktop

Some find puppy suitable for web surfing(browserpup) some find it suitable for gaming(many) and some find it suitable for just programming fun and practice(almost every guy who announce his "distro")

But I find it "retro". Th GUI can really use some cosmetic surgery. KDE and Gnome is rarely discussed here.

Some "windows"like theme has been seen but I like puppy good old 80s.

That's where I had all the fun with "BASIC" and "Sprites"

I already know that Commodore has come back and released PC with old case.

Commodore came up with customized Linux and calls it its own. hahaha...

Anyway, I am doing all this for the cherished memories.

Those who are in 20s wouldn't know what I am talking about.

40s? maybe. 50s... yes.

I miss the old days. I will upload changed desktop whenever ready.

Finally, I had a few second free so that I can try changing desktop.

<Tray autohide="false" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="1" height="28" layer="1" valign="top"> worked but not jwm tray top option.(error message)

I found many problems with tray on top. Programs top title was unseen by the tray.

Big problem. And icons. on/off icons such as drives made the icon changing job difficult.

I used Lazy pup and had all kind of trouble.

Very unstable and no Korean support. I even tried pupngo.

Even more difficult.

I went back to good old snowpup 18.
