.jwm-tray has this:

<TrayButton popup="Show Desktop" icon="mini-desktop.xpm">showdesktop</TrayButton>

This allows you to minimize all windows and showdesktop by clicking the icon.

Apparently, showdesktop is not a command.

I'd like to do this without needing the mouse. Is there a command for this?

If so, it could be bound to a key combo in .jwmrc like this:

<Key mask="A" key="Super_L">exec:showdesktop_cmd</Key>

where showdesktop_cmd is what I'm looking for.

xophist,

You are almost there!

As you have noted, showdesktop is not a regular command that can be run on the command line. It is a JWM "action".

exec: is another JWM "action" used for running regular commands, but not other JWM actions.

So you want to eliminate the exec: and just use showdesktop, like this:
Code:
<Key mask="A" key="Super_L">showdesktop</Key>

At least that works on JWM version svn-505, which came with Racy 5.2.2.

Good luck.

npierce, that worked!

Your explanation was helpful.

Thank you!

You're welcome.

And (a bit belatedly), welcome to the forum!

wmctrl can be used from CLI to minimize all windows.
