I'd like to remove the clipboard manager icon (and maybe CPU monitor) from the 'tray' area but there doesn't seem to be a way to change what appears here in the JWM configuration Manager.

Do I need to edit a file somewhere?

TIA

Paul

Hi PaulR, the way I did it was click File folder on desktop, then Startup, and delete what I didn't need... but there's probably another 'official' way to do it. Shocked

Of course, why didn't I think of that?! Embarassed

Looking at Startup in a terminal I see the symlink for parcellite, so I thought I'd change permissions to make it non-executable rather than deleting it in case I want to restore it later.

It seems I can't change perms (at least in Rox) so after a very quick read up on creating symlinks I decided to delete it anyway Smile

Thanks for the help!

Hi,

What happens if you right-click on your Parcellite tray icon
and then click Quit.

If it works, you could reinstate it from the Main Menu.

My regards

Hi Jasper

Sorry, as I mentioned I deleted it so I can't say if it could be exited or not (I will try to re-create it as a learning exercise though and report back).

Out of interest, how would I reinstate it via the Menu?

Cheers

Paul

Hi

@ PaulR
To get rid of the "CPU monitor" which is actually called "xload",
open up: /root/.jwmrc-tray in your favourite text editor
and change this:
Code:
      <Swallow name="xload" width="32">
         xload -nolabel -bg "#888888" -fg red -hl white
      </Swallow>

to look like this:
Code:
   <!--   <Swallow name="xload" width="32">
         xload -nolabel -bg "#888888" -fg red -hl white
      </Swallow> -->

In other words, comment it out.

After saving the change, restart JWM: Menu > Shutdown > Restart JWM

That should do it.

That will get rid of it, but only temporarily (until you restart xserver or reboot)
because of the afore mentioned symlink in the Startup directory.

If it's under Utilities then click it. Else, look in other likely
categories. If it was already deleted then reinstall it first.

Addendum:

CatDude - my apology - I've just seen your helpful response.

It also depends which puppy you have, the latest puppys use a newer version of jwm, that has some differences in the setup files compared to earlier versions, and the files have new names as well. Also, some newer puppys use 'Glipper' instead of 'Parcellite'.

If you have the file /root/.jwmrc-tray in your puppy, just follow CatDude's recipe.

I run LupuPlus_5.2.8, and I changed the default 'PupClockset' that pops up when you click the clock, to the little calendar window from earlier puppys. I replaced 'PupClockset' in line 18 in my .jwmrc-tray, with 'minixcal'. You can find it in /usr/X11R7/bin/minixcal, and you can click it there if you like, to see what it does. Just move your mouse away after clicking 'minixcal', and it closes again. I restarted jwm after saving the altered text, and it works just as intended!

Thanks folks.

I recreated the symlink and Quit. As noted, it was only a temporary removal - I expected that although I suppose parcellite could have saved it's status somewhere and remained in /Startup.

With regard to xload, I'm on slacko 5.5 and .jwmrc-tray is there so I can comment out the necessary .... having a thumbnail of Scramble in the tray is too distracting Laughing

ok based on what you wrote to add glipper to .jwmrc-tray
Code:
      <Swallow name="glipper">
         killall glipper
         /usr/local/bin/glipper
      </Swallow>
