Also since your using icewm, I think you are, Smile Just edit
/root/.icewm/startup (hidden folder)
and follow the examples in it

No need, I don't think, works fine with just the symlink to /root/Startup in icewm Wink

EDIT: BTW, works just fine in JWM also Wink

Ok, getting a bit too excited here. There is a problem with my fix if you place it in /root/Startup. The clock will not start automatically if you reconfigure Pwidgets from the Pwidgets GUI. Grrrrrrrrr!
So, I edited /usr/sbin/fixwidgets by adding the following line at the end of the script directing it to my script,
Code:
/root/wakeclock.sh

Works great in JWM but now I have some conflict in Icewm with the tray, could be due to an app I use called 'tray_mixer'. Will investigate Crying or Very sad

EDIT: In Icewm I fixed the problem, just gave the tray apps some more time to load, (Hmmmmmm,is that a fix?) Anyway, works ok, Confused edited /root/.icewm/startup
Code:
sleep 5 && /root/my-applications/blinky-0.8-icewm/src/blinky -bg "#000000" &

and
Code:
sleep 6 && /root/my-applications/freememapplet_tray_puppy215ce/freememapplet-tray &

Still buggy though. I'll reupload the 'wakeclock.sh' file with increased distance on the cursor movement parameter because if you use Pwidgets GUI and leave the cursor on 'Apply' the deviation is not enough to find the desktop, which seems to be necessary. Still other bugs too, a little instability, may need to end the process somehow, (I don't know how). I thought being just a short movement and a single click that the process would die a natural death. See how we go Confused

EDIT: Changed the sleep value from 5 to 3 and delayed the click by 1 second, things seem more stable, BTW,most of the instability is in Icewm, Jwm has been playing nice, Smile

Ok guys I finally downloaded Pwidgets and had a play for a few minutes, Does anyone know how to get the grayish dark background removed from the docklet? I just want it to be transparent . Also when I use the analog clock I have to click on the space where it should be, to start it/show it, shouldn't it be automatic once Its set?
Thanks for your help

I have not tested it in icewm. It seems that icewm renders desktop slower than jwm. This prevent widgets to use the correct background when making itself a fake transparent background. Since conky updates the widgets after a given time, they go transparent at next update.
Please try to increase the sleep value in /usr/sbin/fixwidgets.

The analog clock issue is almost fixed (by 01micko), and will be in the next release.

@big_bass... LMAO!

ttuuxxx: read my script, that is what the clock thingy was all about with the click problem.

Rendering of the analog clock in Icewm may (or may not) be due to time settings of your tray apps. I have it working beautifully in Icewm (one of your themes ttuuxxx). Perhaps it is the size is as to your settings of desktop size. Zigbert mentioned about this in the original post, and also that his testing is in jwm. I have been testing, (and working hard at it) in Icewm and jwm with the Analog-clock. Hope this helps

EDIT: ttuuxxx, Zigbert has not included my fix for the analog-clock yet in the main post because it is still at Pwidgets-0.1. Try my fix further back in this thread. Give me feedback please. Wink

Homer: *clap, clap* (nothing happens), *clap, clap* (still nothing happens)
Marge: "We don't have a clapper."
Homer: *lamp goes sailing through window*

It is not recommended to throw your PC out the window (UNLESS it has windows, lol) if the clapping does not work!
