Hey everyone.

I have this vision in my head of how I want JWM to look. More like the old version with a few customisations. I downloaded the source but it's way over my head.

I think it would be pretty easy to do for someone with some C knowledge. I've included a screen of what I'd like the windows and menu to look like. The bar at the bottom should look in a similar style, something like this link:
http://nickgravgaard.com/windowlab/windowlab.png

Also it would be nice if going through the menu the sidemenus didn't pop open immediately, but after a fraction of a second. Would look a bit sleaker I think.

Any takers, pretty please? Smile

You should be able to do this without resorting to manipulating the source code. Search for trio's JWM theme maker. Between that and Gtk themes that can be downloaded and modified from Gnome-look.org, you should be well on your way.

Also take a look at the JWM manual at Joe's site for the options available with the task bar and trays, etc.

Hope that helps.

Not quite. You can't for example get rid of the windows style "3d" border effect on the menu, which I find incredibly ugly. It's the little details that make something like this work.

Unless I'm mistaken that's a Gtk effect that is controlled by the Gtk theme config file. Between both Gtk and trio's JWM theme maker you should be able to control ALL of the look-and-feel elements.

all you need to do is compile it without the features that you don't want - for instance to remove rounded corners, ./configure --disable-shape

if you are referring to the color gradients that make the "appearance" of 3d - just change it in the settings (one color instead of two)

just use ./configure --help if you want to add/remove features (see pet packaging 100 in my signature to get started)

Here is a jwm that I use in minimal desktops with everything disabled (no icons or anything and only basic font support) - it runs really light.
