In order to change the icon on the jwm menu button it necessary to open the .jwmrc-tray file found in the /root directory with a text editor. Click on the "home" icon for quick access to the root directory.

Locate the following lines in the .jwmrc-tray file:

<!-- Additional TrayButton attribute: label -->
<TrayButton label="Menu" icon="mini-dog.xpm">root:3</TrayButton>

Replace "mini-dog.xpm" with the icon of your choice. Some distros will have an icon other than mini-dog.xpm simply replace that icon name with the name of your preferred icon.

Save and close the .jwmrc-tray file.

Restart jwm.


If you do not want the word menu to appear on the button next to the icon then edit label="Menu" to appear as label="".

That should do it.
