Subject description: Gradients for taskbar buttons and menu
 

For gradients in taskbar buttons edit the following bold, italian parts in .jwmrc

<TaskListStyle>
<Font>DejaVu Sans 12:bold</Font>
<ActiveForeground>black</ActiveForeground>
<ActiveBackground>orange:yellow</ActiveBackground>
<Foreground>gray60</Foreground>
<Background>gray50:black</Background>
</TaskListStyle>

menu doesn't have gradients

hope this helps

you need to set the background of your desktop to black and the writing under icons to green. This is done in the Rox filer options menu.

Something I have noticed with users is that the word "menu" disorientates them, when they are expecting the word "start"? Would someone do a theme with this change and report back how it is done?

Sure. Edit /root/.jwmrc-tray at the top where the word "Menu" appears.
Code:
<Tray  autohide="false" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="0" height="26" >
      <!-- Additional TrayButton attribute: label -->
      <TrayButton label="Menu" icon="vincent-logo16.xpm">root:3</TrayButton>

Just replace it with whatever you choose. I usually add spaces either side, too, to give some room to the icon that is mentioned.

Hope that helps.

why are we worrying about the menu button when other stuff is actally broke... currently the olny thing I hate about my setup is the green "start" button.... didn't someone mention doing a new jwm config wizard if so add option to change the button name?

IMO "Menu" is about as logical as it gets because that is what it is ... "Start" doesn't really make sence what exactly is it that we are starting? I think M$ chose "Start" because... we'll it is hard to explain.... why copy a windows convention if the current one makes as much or better sence?

If the word "Menu" disorients people we should put a warning that they should not drink alcohol or smoke weed while using puppy...DUH! LOL

I just find it hard to believe that anybody has been "disoriented" by "Menu" how many experiences have you had with this ecomoney?

If people really are that "disorientable" (i'm not inclined to think so) they won't be able to figure out any computer stuff anyway Linux Mac or M$ ....or BSD or whatever Cameras use "Menu" just like practicaly all cosumer devices... are they more common than computers these days? that would make "Menu" a better standard (assuming most of them use it)...

PS. the start button wierds me out.....
