Hello all.

Heads up! I just discovered that the variables defined in pekwm's 'vars' file
for variables are not recognized in pekwm's 'mouse' configuration file.

In the pekwm configuration 'mouse' file, if you want to call, say, a
terminal configuration from a mouse+key combination, write the "Exec"
part with the full path to the file.

For ex., in pekwm's configuration file for the mouse, in the "Screen Edge"
section, "Up" subsection:
Code:
ButtonRelease = "Mod4 1" { Actions = "Exec /root/my-applications/bin/terminaux/console.sh &" }

BFN.

Hello all.

A bilingual (FR-EN) respin of my new pekwm menu creator is now
available here. Its structure should facilitate translation of the
pekwm menu in other languages as well.

How-to:
Simply unpack the zip archive there in /root/.pekwm.
Then make the two *.sh scripts executable, and
run < menu-complet.sh >.
Launch pekwm and
reload the menu.

That's for the first run.

Once your new menu is set, any menu refresh can be done from entry
pekwm->menu->Gen./Refresh; wait 4-5 seconds until the little "Finished!"
panel shows up and Reload the menu.

Any question, please ask.

Please note: English-speakers do not have to change.

BFN.

With TahrPup605 noticed some random "freeze-up" , while
pressing the "Alt" key on keyboard somehow fixes that ... Confused

Also some strange things with folders on ROX-pinboard,
where one needs to triple-click to open the folder... ( instead of double-click )
Is that a ROX or PEKWM issue?

btw,
there is no way to add app icon on window frame top.
Even if one can display these icons in minimized windows list. Question

Hello torm.

Thanks for your comment.

For your paragraphs 1 and 2, may I suggest you check your hardware
before blaming the software? Sounds as though the USB connectors for
your mouse and keyboard could be a bit loose? Or -- and I hate saying
this to a new forum member -- perhaps your keyboard and mouse need
some cleaning? Wink

In your paragraph 1, short system "freeze-ups" or "waits" are also typical
of a system about to overheat... Or your system is temporarily out of
RAM and your swap file is briefly being used.

In your paragraph 3, do you mean "the top of the frame of the program
window"? If so, common name for it in Linux is "title bar".

I'm not in the mind of the pekwm developers, I don't know why they did it
that way, but I'd say it's a pekwm feature: pekwm presents the title bar
differently than other window managers. Probably because in pekwm you
can have the close, min-max buttons, etc., on either side of the title bar.

IHTH.

No. Hardware is clean and okay, these errors appear
only with PekWM ( not JWM, XFCE, Compiz, OpenBox, etc. )
ROX folders on pinboard are a problem, clicking on other
icons start programs just fine.

System is not running out of ressources/overload.
Mouse cursor can be moved around, while clicking anywhere does nothing.
Until I press "Alt"-key once and things are back to normal.
Confused

Missing title bar icons are most likely somehow related to
window grouping feature. Rolling Eyes
There's nothing that user can do about it,
and it is not mentioned anywhere in the documentation.

Aside from the above..
Yes it is interesting window manager
with no special dependencies and great theme support.
