I am working on a vista style puppy.

I was wondering if there is anyway to use a vista style taskbar image.


I was looking in jwm configurations and, can't see anyway to use a taskbar image.

Not even including adding one to the background image.

Could gtk2 do anything to help here?

Not sure if this is what you mean, but trio has made an icon and name editor for the menu button that worked for me:

The related line is this one:
Quote:
<TrayButton label="Programme" icon="TOPLESS2.png" border="true">root:3</TrayButton>

Note/look/search the root:3 !!!

It is in file: /root/.jwmrc-tray (almost on top of the file's content).

No need to have a gui or program (just text editor) to modify this.

Edit:

Checked right now:

- it is possible to use label="" to have no text
- it is possible to use icon sized e.g.: width 128px and height 48px

Edit2:

After I checked this I changed my menu tray button to have no text anymore and to use a icon sized 156x48 pixel. Looks cool.

It is also possible to use the scalable vector graphics format (svg), instead of png.
If you place the image in the folder /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/ , you only have to specify the image name in .jwmrc-tray, like so:

Code:
<TrayButton label="Menu" icon="image_name.svg">root:3</TrayButton>
