[experimental] Delicate and JWM

[experimental] Delicate and JWM
[Image: 27417d177196955.jpg]

WARNING: The following information is experimental, so please don't use it if you're not sure what you're doing!! It doesn't use the menugenerator and when you're editting menu entries you need to be root, so you can easily make mistakes.
It's meant to be informative and certainly not for everydays use, IceWM does that job
very well.

Delicate Linux and JWM in Gnome 2.xx look
A while ago I saw something in the AntiX forum about JWM in Gnome 2.xx look, I thought that perhaps I can make something like that.
I really had some doubts to publish it, because some people may try and I don't wanna cause any troubles, on the other hand perhaps this information can be useful for those with more experience and it's nice as a showoff to those who loved Gnome 2 (and hate Unity or Gnome 3). Expect rough edges and there is still room for improvements, some entries are NOT in the official Delicate repositories but my own creations. Perhaps someone can makes it better, that wouldn't be that hard Smile

The first step:

# Maintainer: theo - nl2stk

pkgdesc="A lightweight window manager for the X11 Window System"
depends=('libX11' 'fribidi' 'libxfont' 'libjpeg' 'libxpm' 'libpng')

build() {
  cd "$srcdir/$pkgname-$pkgver"
  ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc  --disable-xinerama \
  --host=$CHOST --build=$CHOST
  make || return 1
  make BINDIR="$pkgdir/usr/bin" MANDIR="$pkgdir/usr/share/man" \
       SYSCONF="$pkgdir/etc" install

After making this package and installation, you can choose it with the 'delisetup'
With 'startx' you're running JWM in the standard modus and most programs are missing in the menu. Remember JWM doesn't use a menugenerator or something,
so it's oldfashion handwork.
The configuration file is NOT in your homedirectory so you need to be root to edit it.
BIG BIG warning be very careful and backup your original etc/system.jwmrc !!!

In my example I use esetroot (to set the wallpaper) and conky (which I placed on the right side of the screen). Another thing is that I'm using the 800 x 600 resolution, so perhaps the panels needs some finetuning when you're using a higher resolution.
I've made some standard directories like Gnome has with the following names: Desktop, Documents, Downloads, Music, Pictures and Videos. Desktop is a special one, it's not like in Gnome that you're actually looking at the stuff at you're Desktop.
But I'm using it as a high priority directory, some programs using it and give it a nice place (leafpad does). So it's nice feature afterall.
Another thing is that I included some bash scripts to make something easier, like to make a repository list and a helpfile for making PKGBUILD files.
Enough said, this is the etc/system.jwmrc I'm using:

For the root terminal entry I've made a simple bash file called (executable) which is placed in the home dir. Maybe it can be nicer but I'm a bit lazy.

exit 0

For making a recent repolist I've created another small (executable) bash file called ''.

pacman -Sl>repo.txt
exit 0

The PKGHELP is nothing more than a textfile which contains the same information as the 'collected bits and pieces' topic as displayed in the forum.

The only thing that's missing right now are the icons, I've installed them in the ~/.icons directory, but you can place them in whatever you want if you included the path in the system.jwmrc
Please remember that this is only an example and I've include them.
I'll hope it's worth reading Smile

There ain't such thing as an official package :]
Once in a while I'm working at it to make it better and collect bits and pieces that I can use.
All is done with the original JWM (not the hacked version), the system.jwmrc and the icons which are included. Only the wallpaper is not included. It's as is... People may do with it whatever they want... as long as they improve it and share it :]
