Add or substract workspaces/desktops Subject description: Edit /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal to increase or decrease your workspaces/desktops
I "grew up" with Ubuntu and liked the feature of setting the number of desktops from the gui. I always liked four at least or six when I was doing serious work. So I was little put back by 431's two and quirky's three.
You can increase or decease in both by editing:
/root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal. .jwm is a hidden file so use ls -a option to see it. You will find code that lists the number of Desktops in "[N]" change to what you want and reboot to reset your x-windows and you have it.

I thought you said "from the gui"
To see hidden files in Rox (usually the default file manager in Puppy) just click the button with the eye icon. _________________ Classic Puppy quotes

Thanks for the reply. I always use commandline so you educated me on the use of the gui and the file manager. Yes, it could all be done from the gui using the stock text editor. I did it from commandline and used emacs. Thanks again.
