thats easily done with icewm. Just one setting for the top and one for the bottom and the fonts is one line in the gtk theme your using. But things like blinky would have to be reduced and the min,lower,max buttons would have to be reduced now that I think of it, probably would take me about 3hrs to convert a icewm theme.

Patriot

Thanks for your efforts with jwm. I've been using the jwm alpha since its release without any issues.

Is this the JWM Themes Exchange thread?


JWM ICEWM who cares its all in the next puppy release, These 2 window managers go toe to toe all the time, JWM was always default but IceWM was mostly the replacement, I've had well over 700 downloads just on my first release, my second was way past that.
Plus people could learn somethings, like I said blinky would have to be reduced in size, so would freememory applet,
If people weren't so eager to jump on someone mentioning 1 paragraph about icewm, I could lend a hand and improve things. But really JWM days are numbered unless you find a way to get rid of the ugly MICROSOFT WINDOWS 95 look too the windows page decorations [_] [--] [X], would it be that hard to code in some png or xpm images?
sure the new gradients do give JWM some new life, but I really do hate looking at things that resemble MS products. If that would change I bet a lot of people would reconsider changing wm's, I for one like JWM a lot. is small, stable, what you guys are doing with themes is great, I've made some myself for JWM, also the other thing that needs improving is the taskbar menu button, it does handle images very clearly, ever notice that, I had a heck of a time making a button image clear for one of my Fire Hydrant retro versions. So 2 things really I could see improving on.

Have no idea of how it works, but it does - definitely needs Xorg support to function with transparency (I 1st tried it on an Xvesa pup and it got the radius'd corners, but not much of an xorg.conf there to work with ..). The window opacity/transparency seems to take a while to 'settle in' or maybe I just got lucky after some diddling - very good job, patriot and thanks

a screenshot and here's another mod for the adventurous - I'm using the sidetrays for a pagerleft and dockright these days in jwm, only use the bottom tray for a tasklist anymore .. surprising how things work out Smile yell at me if the tar.gz is funky .. the beta's have been on'n'off for me lately

Patriot you can have svn access whenever you want just PM me your sourceforge unix name

also how about an "official" JWM config panel that follows the current JWM theme written the same dependancies as JWM I know it is a lot to ask but it is always a good idea to have any settings tools well integrated with the program

patriot's JWM = JWM done right

Unlike the previous hack,this one fixes every major bug in the previous build, including the gxine restore-from-fullscreen issue. Not only that,but now it looks absolutely gorgeous with the rounded corners,flat menus and without those ugly button separators.

The only major things missing are button feedback on mouseover (for the taskbar,tray and window buttons)* and horizontal gradients (as in Windows 2000 / KDE).

* The menu does have this feature.

Without feedback,everything feels static and "unprofessional".

I'd like to see this "feedback on mouseover" feature implemented for the ROX desktop icons as well.

xcompmgr is nice also, but no video in gxine.
i saw that in sidux gxine plays video with composite effects
maybe it's patched somehow?

Would it be difficult to switch the JWM tray into autohide mode when you switch to fullscreen? Thanks for your work.

It shouldn't be changed to autohide, it should just be hidden... that's one of the JWM bugs that need fixing.

Patriot: you should probably start a thread for the improved JWM (I found a bug, but this isn't really the thread for it...).

Hmmm ...

My apologies to all for my lack of presence. I'm recovering from flu the past week or so ... please allow a few more days for me to recover. It's mighty uncomfortable to look at the screen with bleary eyes and the sneezings ...

As it is, my intended enhancements for JWM is feature complete for now. Before I got these bleary eyes, these were completed :

- user window bitmap mask button support.
- fixed a small drawing glitch to the tray buttons.
- translucency option checked against composite support.

I will also look into keeping the tray hidden in fullscreen mode in a couple of days. There's also a small glitch with xcompmgr that still eludes me.

I appreciate all the feedbacks (whether good or bad) on how JWM can be further improved.

@Dougal
The JWM source codes only need one last checking and everything will be available soon. I agree that it should be in its own thread. Hope to see you and everyone else over there soon ...

@magerlab
For having video in gxine with xcompmgr, I've read somewhere that you may need to disable the color key (colorkey = 0) and/or using the xv driver. Using kcompmgr seems to give better result as it has some bug fixes. Hope that helps.

@panzerpuppy
I'm glad you enjoyed the new look. Horizontal gradient can be added but please allow some time for me to think how to implement it properly. I've also already thought of adding simple hover buttons support but lets put it on KIV for now.

@cb88
Thank you for the svn access allowance. Will do that soon.

A JWM config manager isn't on my list of todo right now but I agree it would be great to have. I imagine a WYSIWYG config manager where everything is configurable. We'll see ...

@`foo & jcoder24
I sure hope you both enjoyed the enhanced JWM.

@ttuuxxx
The window buttons can now be bitmasked to something else. No png/xpm yet. Wanted to keep small+simple for now and stay bug free before adding "new bugs" ... The menu buttons 'very clear images' may well be looked into later ...

@
Oohh my eyes ... need some rest now ... see ya later everyone ...

you have to edit
/usr/share/themes open the folder of which theme you want to edit
you'll see a gtkrc file, right click on it and open it as text

a few lines down it will say
font_name="DejaVu Sans 12" <---change it to like 10 or 8 like this
font_name="DejaVu Sans 10"

then save it and try it, should work perfectly
Sometimes you get themes that don't have that and go by system defaults, well all you do is add that line and you should be fine, usually under
style "theme-default"
{
font_name="DejaVu Sans 12" <-- like that
