Fixed symlinks in woof.
I do not intend to repackage themes as they should be usable by older jwm too.
I can not add the hack in PPM either but the puppy builder can when is using the new JWM.
If we get some reliable way to test JWM version we could make the fix conditional. Unfortunately many puppies use vgit version instead of "normal" versions so is hard to know.
Anybody knows of any jwm command to run in terminal that could distinguish the versions so it could be used as condition?

Regarding theme location, I tried to use symlinks instead of moving the files so can be used by both new and old JWM without taxing the system and it did not work. Confused Any idea why symlinks will not work in the dialogs?

Regarding first run I'll try again tomorrow (hopefully)

@mavrothal

Take a look at my jwm-232 packages, both 32 and 64. In there is a test for normal or vgit jwm versions. I believe radky has tackled the problem too with his new JWMdesk.

Choices Smile

Regarding first boot: is reproducible. Fire 6.0.8.1, fix the symlinks, try to change the top tray and press apply at the end. Nothing.
Restart jwm see change in tray but no change in behaviour.
However, restart X and now tray management behaves.
Turns out that the initial absence of menu{1,2,3} "sticks" till X restart and "trips" the applet. Nothing to wary about with the correct links.

Latter: Maybe not. Again booting from CD. Install 0.4 pet. Restart X. Apply in tray management does not work.
Restart jwm manually. See the change take effect. Apply still does not worg.
Restart X again. Everything is fine.
So it would appear that after the first time the tray management dialog runs and then you restart jwm, some config is changed that takes effect after X restart. Confused
BTW nothing in terminal or /tmp/xerrs.log

@01micko
Nice. Thanks. But as usually in linux there are other ways. Razz
Detect zigbert's jwm_config
Code:
[  -d /usr/share/jwm/themes ]
should do. No?
Actually if either zigbert's or radky's or the next big thing works with symlinks we do not really care. Symlink /root/.jwm/themes to /usr/share/jwm/themes and we are done!

Even latter: Bingo!
Moving /root/.jwm/themes to /usr/share/jwm/themes and symlinking back to /root/.jwm/ works with radky's, jwmconfig2 or 3 and even in Precise-5.7 that I tried.
So we may need to change woof a bit for building and PPM for installing and all apps should work with all theme and jwm version Very Happy
Actually if the link is there PPM change may not be needed.

Latter Latter: Bummer. Installing or removing a jwm theme with PPM destroys the symlinks.
Any chance jwm_config to work with symlinks in /usr/share/jwm/themes or better yet get the themes from /root/.jwm/themes?
Not sure what the benefits of moving themes to /usr/share/jwm/themes is other than not messing with old themes and being more "appropriate", but will save a lot of hassle if it moves back to read from /root/.jwm/themes

Waaaay latter Razz
Maybe just keep /usr/share/jwm/ for complete pThemes but allow theme switcher to also check /root/.jwm/themes (and prioritise /usr/share if in both), would be the best solution and will require only minimal changes.

A couple more jwm_config issues (with patch .04 pet applied)
Gtk theme switcher is only accessible through the pTheme applet. Should be accessible from the main puppy desktop applet.

It is unclear what what the "clear" button does in the window buttons theme applet and more important why it restarts jwm.

Cancel in the jwm theme switcher applet restarts jwm. it should not.
OK BTW does nothing (as it should in this case).

The background icon in the icon switcher applet defaults to tilled and looks strange (check stardust blue or grey) if the wallpaper is set to (the default) "stretched". Should follow whatever is selected in the wallpaper setter or at least the default.(stretched)

(I did not have anything to add after "waaaay latter" Razz )

I am sure it is like that for you, but I still can't reproduce it.
Img shows tray management at first run of 6.0.8.1 including the jwm_config 'patch'.

That is how it is supposed to be. All themeing is pointed to pTheme (Wallpaper is different). Puppy is heavy themable, so looking at one theme module without getting the big picture is backwards (imho). gtk-themeing is just one of many modules, and one of the reason for making pTheme was to clean up... I suggest we also remove icon-switcher from desktop menu as for gtk-switcher in the ptheme pinstall script in woof.

The button tooltip says: Reinstates the stock standard icons. Jwm has a builtin set of button icons. Jwm has to restart to activate these.

mavrothal wrote:

OK BTW does nothing (as it should in this case).
A single click on one of the theme-buttons switch theme. The cancel button has to switch back to the theme used before you ran the themeswitcher - therefor restarting jwm. If you click Ok, activated theme is what the user like, and there is no reason for restarting jwm.

This technique is to use an image in a gtk background. The question of stretching has been raised before, and I have not seen anyone solved it. It seems that gtk only supports tiles. This is an issue for small images like startdust blue/grey. These are meant to be replaced by svg images which hasn't the same prooblem.

jwm themeswitcher is updated at woof, and handles now themes from both $HOME/.jwm and /usr/share/jwm

attached pet contains all previous fixes and svg backgrounds for builtin global themes. This also fixes the background in the icon-switcher.
Everything is added to Woof.

The old png wallpapers in woof should be deleted:

@01micko
ndiswrapper in slacko-6.0.8.1 worked initially followed by what seemed to be lack of persistency on reboots The last 3 reboots seem to be ok, so I'm watching.

Changed cursor OK, but there are issues with desktop manager as shown in accompanying screenshots.
Expected right-click at the desktop to launch Menu but it didn't..On first attempt to rectify that, I got an error, but it worked after exiting. Reverted to non-operational mode since then.
Tried to get the bright menu instead of zigbert's favourite 'stardust', but again an error about settings.

All for now.

[EDIT 10/29]
ndiswrapper continues to work Persistent between reboots.

The patch fixed the other problems. Surprised about the change to mouse middle button for Menu.

I built this tonight, did a manual frugal install to a usb-3.0 hard

I added applications with PPM and installed some pets.
My Broadcom Corporation BCM43228 802.11a/b/g/n isn't supported but
that's the only problem so far.

Thanks.

Edit: I did a manual frugal install to a usb-3.0 hard drive on my HP desktop.

There is no 32bit zarfy available but this line saved as 2monitors.sh
and placed in /root/startup does the job on this desktop:

xrandr --auto --output HDMI2 --mode 1920x1080 --left-of HDMI1

From just 2 posts above yours, install patch_jwm_config-0.5.pet (or any of the previous 4 versions here)

BTW @zigbert, 0.5 has ironed out most bugs Very Happy
The only thing I think it should be fixed for "production" is the disappearance of the try if a hide position other than appearing position is selected. Ideally only on/of should be offered. So the AUTOHIDE variable (on/off) should rather call a function that in case of "on" would evaluate /root/.jwm/tmp/tray_{VALIGN.HALIGN,DIRECTION_VER,DIRECTION_HOR} and set top/bottom/left/right properly in tray_AUTOHIDE.

@01micko (@zigbert), I thought I noticed a recent change in wallapaper pet version, in case this was before this built, the default tree widget when you open the app in NOT from /usr/share/backgrounds but from /root. Also (or because of that?) when you press clear the entire desktop is wiped out including background, icons, and drives! Installing one of the default themes reinstates everything.
