To all helping with my JWM issues in fat_free 2.16.

I don´t wanna hijack this thread! Post here.

That is the thread I started about my 486 and it´s successes and failures. Wink

Cheers

Mick Smile

Code:
JWM build 45x:
* Added support for pager labels.


Does this mean we finally have numbers for the virtual desktops in the pager? Wink

Pager labels are available now, just add labeled="true" to your Pager tag
and a label should appear with the desktop names. You can also use
Font to specify a font and Text to specify a text color (in the PagerStyle
section).

I've started playing around more with transparency, and in revision 455
I've changed the way it works so that the active window gets an opacity
set in the Active subsection of WindowStyle and the Opacity in the
Inactive subsection has three parts: <min>:<max>:<delta> so that
inactive windows get an opacity assigned based on stacking. This gives
a pretty neat effect I think. Unfortunately it broke the key binding and
window menu for transparency, so I took those out for now (group setting
is still there). I'm curious how people use transparency. Any suggestions?

I'm also curious about the "shade hack". I took that out and it seems to
work fine. Though I'm all too familiar with problems going from system
to system, especially with composite stuff, so maybe it just happens to
work for me for some reason.

Im glad the jwm project is continuing, I had heard a rumour it was unmaintained. I think the improvements are fantastic, and am looking forward to the transparent window titles and rounded borders. There is really no reason for puppy linux to look ugly just because it is small.

Im especially happy because the gxine fullscreen bug seems to be fixed by this update (where you must maximise gxine before switching to a full screen view).

I can only find two small faults with the latest version.

1. When trying to move maximised windows by draggin from the window border, they always pop back up maximised again. Surely they should "restore" and end up where the user places them?

2. Using the alt-tab cycles the open applications in no particular order. It would be nice to be able to alt-tab between the last two used applications.

How much extra space/resource would a simple alt-tab task list use?

Many thanks for your work Joe

Should I use the '--with-x' option when configuring/compiling jwm?

That's a redundant option that is added to all configure scripts automatically... just ignore it.
There's no need to specify any of the options with jwm, except maybe for the path (prefix).

This can easily be fixed by simply not keeping track of whether a window
was maximized or not when the move started. When a window is only
maximized in the x or y directions, moving a maximized window makes
sense, but otherwise I suppose it doesn't. Perhaps I should make it so
it only restores maximized windows if they were only maximized in one
direction?

This is already supported. Just use "nextstacked" instead of "next" for the
alt-tab key binding. It will keep track of all applications, but it will switch
through them by stacking order rather than open order.

On a side note, I've been working on integrating the
composite/fixes/damages extensions into JWM so that a program such
as xcompmgr or kcompmgr isn't needed to do transparency/shadows/etc.
This is quite a task though... I almost wonder if it's worth it, but I think
it would be much faster and much cleaner if JWM handled all of this.

Is it ok to chip in here and say how brilliant it is that JWM is getting some development. I love it for its speed and lightweight resource use, and its now getting a nice sophisticated look. Thanks everyone.
Also, when posting the entries that are needed to create things such as desktop lables, could an example of how the entry should should actually appear in the file be posted please?

So... what's up with this thread?

I've been using svn-455 and I still have the problem of windows losing focus when I switch desktops... so we're obviously not done.

Yup, since the enhancements are not 'official', many may be trying them out the easy way (via .pets or other method and making the adjustments as spec'd in the docs if included). It's still very much in development and will progress with i/o on both testing and dev.

@joewing - great to have you 'back' as it were Smile very good news on the side note above - x/kcompmgr creates a few anomalies in Blackbox and also AfterStep but after it's killed all works well. Different wms and feature sets, to be sure, but quick and clean they can be also.

@DaveS - Laughing desktop labels are usually the 1st thing I get rid of on AS' pager(s), wms are funny things Wink everyone has a different style, look and feel

I'm still waiting for the 24x24 sub menu icons Confused
It used to be a configure file, but I can't find it. I think Patriot had it working on one of his screenshots. The menu doesn't look right when you have 2 different image sizes.
