Hi rek769,

In older Pups the JWM configuration options were available as individual apps in the /usr/local/jwmconfig2 directory.

For example, you could extract the jwmconfig2 directory (and contents) from the legacy Precise Puppy.

Thanks for the quick reply Radky,
I'm looking inside that directory and not seeing any thing that allows one to call up the background, gtk theme, icon theme, icon layout, icon manager, mouse cursor, or screen font applications directly.

There is, in that directory, jwmConfigMgr which will run and does have subroutines for GTK Theme, and Desktop Background, but none of the others seem to be accessible.

What I'd really like to know is how to launch each of the applications (that I posted about originally) from a terminal.

For example, from a terminal one can call up:

GTK Theme setter with: gtk_chtheme_wrapper
Desktop icon switcher with: icon_switcher

but I've had no luck finding the others...

Hi rek769,

The Desktop tab of PupControl provides easy access to those applications, plus much more.

If PupControl is not included in your current Puppy, you can find it at the following link:

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=467157#467157

---

If you prefer terminal-based commands in standard JWM-based Pups, try the following:

GTK theme: gtk_chtheme_wrapper
Icon theme: icon_switcher
Icon layout: /usr/local/desksetup/desksetup.sh (not available in all Pups)
Icon manager: "eventmanager desktop"
Background: wallpaper (or wallpaper2 in some Pups)
Cursor: pcur
Screen font: set-xftdpi

Excellent. Thanks radky for those terminal commands...very handy to have in the fluxbox menu.

Hi kuman11,

Remember that Slacko 5.7.2CE was packaged with Windows refugees in mind [use of terminal not expected] and to reduce the clutter of listings on the Start-Menu. All the configurations radky mentioned are available from the JWMDesk GUI: Menu>Desktop>JWMDesk Manager.

If using a different Window Manager, all the terminal commands mentioned will bring up GUIs for changing settings, except "wallpaper2" as this Puppy uses the "wallpaper" alternative.

JWMDesk-2.5
- Optionally display numerical coordinates of the selected desktop window. Go to Window tab -> Move and Resize options -> Coordinates (thanks tallboy)
- Adjust svg format of JWM button icons for compatibility with librsvg >= 2.44 in recent Pups (thanks 01micko)

- JWM_themes_update-2.1
- Critical Update: Adjust compatibility with recent changes in Woof-CE -- do not use symlinked /tmp directory during pet installation (thanks gyrog and wdlkmpx)
