When I install an icewm.pet sometimes the shutdown panel doesn't work right. For example I installed icewm.402 in Mediapup and aside from a restart with JWM command working everything else does. I have to exit to prompt>poweroff to shut down

Also, sometimes the savin terminates but as far as I can tell it did complete the save.

Any ideas for a noob to coding? I understand theming but little else, Lol Very Happy

hello walter90

look like we have same problem and i was make some menu for ice wm for my puppy.

for editing icewm menus, you must edit file on /etc/xdg/templates/_root_.icewm_menu

try open and edit, i was editing this line :

...............................................................................................................
menu "Fun" face-win24 {
PUPPYMENU icewm-xdgmenu /etc/xdg/menus/puppy-fun.menu
}

separator

prog Help help24 defaulthtmlviewer file:///usr/share/doc/index.html

menu "Windows" programs24 {
prog "Restart X server" mini-x restartwm
prog "Fix Menus" mini-x fixmenus
prog "Reboot" mini-x wmreboot
prog "Shutdown" mini-x wmpoweroff
}

..................................................................................................................
then on command line exec : fixmenus

and i included icewm-menu.pet if you getting hard to find it Very Happy

Here's another variation, derived from the JWM menu and modified for IceWM:

Code:
menu "Restart" programs24 {
restart "Restart with JWM" mini-windows jwm
restart "Restart IceWM" mini-windows icewm
prog "Restart X server" mini-x restartwm
}

menu "Shutdown" "" {
prog "Power-off computer" "mini-stop.xpm" wmpoweroff
prog "Reboot computer" "mini-turn.xpm" wmreboot   
prog "Exit to prompt" "prompt16.xpm" wmexit
}
