Subject description: Utility to easily change start menu icon and text also Menu List Label text
 

Hello,

Utility to easily change start menu icon
It will replace your JWM Config Manager. But don't worry, if you uninstall it will come back to original

Note: if you change your current start menu icon, then any other app using the same icon (usually /usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons/mini-dog.xpm), it will also be changed. No harm though.


V 1.1; Shouldn't be used in Slacko, different JWM Config manager, supports not only .xpm

V 1.2: For slacko with pTheme - menu entry is under desktop

v 1.4 For slacko 6.3 with pTheme, now can change text too

v 1.5 For slacko 6.3 with pTheme bugfix when repeatedly change icon/text

v 1.6 For general puppies, many improvements

v 1.7 Bugfix:
- Lines 34, 42 and 51 you have a hard-coded string "$HOME/.jwm/jwmrc-tray1" which should be $JWMTRAY in each
- Lines 61 and 69 doesn't append the extension to XPMICONNAME so nothing displays: .jwmrc-tray needs icon="leaf-plant.png"

v 1.8 Add new function; showing and changing menu label text

v 1.9: - Compatibility with older std puppy(ies) if jwmrc template is not heavily altered. test in slacko 6.3 and racy 5.3
- supports multiple text as start menu text
- splash popup if menu label text is already hidden
- button height adjusted for prettier gui
- now supports svg icons if available

Enjoy

Being posted for two days and you calling it not popular.
Two days in Puppy land is like 2 seconds in Puppy time.
I just saw this.

Give it some time for people to discover it.

So far this does look like a good added feature.
I need to play with it for awhile.

Thanks Exclamation Exclamation

Tahrpup 6.0 CE

Seems to work OK.

The only thing that I wonder is, the icons being shown to select, seem to be some really old and a little strange.
Should be some better icon sets to offer.

OK, the mini icons pet added some better choices, but still seems there should be more already installed with a normal Puppy version.

I like the alien one. Very Happy

Hello.

Wow. If you need this, laziness has affected you really badly.
C'mon, people, get active! Get off your b...ts! Burn a few calories!

All you need is the icon of your choice and leafpad:

Right-click on your chosen icon and click "Rename". Then click Cntrl-A with the
cursor in the box to get the entire path and filename.

Open leafpad. Open file /root/.jwmrc-tray in leafpad.

This is the top of the file:
Quote:
<JWM>
<Tray autohide="false" insert="right" x="0" y="-1" border="1" height="28" >
<!-- Additional TrayButton attribute: label -->
<TrayButton label="Menu" icon="puppy.svg" border="true">root:3</TrayButton>
<TrayButton popup="Show Desktop" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/x48.png" border="true">showdesktop</TrayButton>
<TrayButton popup="Browser" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/www48.png" border="true">exec:defaultbrowser</TrayButton>
<TrayButton popup="Terminal" icon="/usr/local/lib/X11/pixmaps/console48.png" border="true">exec:urxvt</TrayButton>
(...)
This is the tray button line in above file:
Quote:
<TrayButton label="Menu" icon="puppy.svg" border="true">root:3</TrayButton>
I've colorized the icon definition. You change the part "puppy.svg" to the filename
of your new icon : "puppy-arf.png" or whatever -- with a copy-and-paste.

By golly, how hard can that be? Also, by doing this, you're learning something --
not just clicking.

Sorry for ruffled feathers.

BFN.

v1.6 - Slacko without ptheme, didn't work:

- Lines 34, 42 and 51 you have a hard-coded string "$HOME/.jwm/jwmrc-tray1" which should be $JWMTRAY in each
- Lines 61 and 69 doesn't append the extension to XPMICONNAME so nothing displays: .jwmrc-tray needs icon="leaf-plant.png"
