Jwmconfig2 20101229-bk

01micko posted an upgrade for Jwmconfig2, to improve behaviour of the page-selectors with JWM 500:

Wary 5.0 has Jwmconfig2 20101228-bk. Forum member don922 reported that the page-selector windows in the tray disappeared (in wary 5.0):

Adding a new launch button to tray causes the screen selector boxes to be removed.

Forum post from don922:

I don't know if 01micko's latest Jwmconfig2 fixes that. The guys who are currently working on Jwmconfig2 may have to check that one out.

The virtualDesktopnew does not work on Wary-500m06 with jwm-500-i18n.(Tried with LANG=C)

sed: -e expression #1, char 0: no previous regular expression
sed: -e expression #1, char 0: no previous regular expression

Other than the virtualDesktopnew,all seems ok.

re VirtualDesktop
works ok here in spup, but it is not i18n patched. Just be aware that the syntax is different in the /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal file (to 493 and previous versions)

<!-- Number of virtual desktops -->
<Desktops width="3" height="2"/>

<!-- Double click speed (in milliseconds) -->

Note the new syntax <Desktops width="x" height="y"> which is the actual number of columns and rows.


PS, the add an icon to tray is working ok here too

Re JWM virtual desktops
What about the DesktopCount tag in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal2:

<!-- Personally configurable options for JWM: these override default settings and theme settings -->


<!-- Tray Autohide -->
<Tray autohide="true" insert="left"/>

<!-- Number of virtual desktops -->

<!-- Double click speed (in milliseconds) -->

re desktop count
It seems that it is deprecated, and if I left it in there then it is my mistake. (Actually I just checked and I didn't leave it there). The /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal2 is just a backup copy made in most of the operations in all those jwmconfig scripts as far as I know.
I first noticed this (virtual desktop change) before the new year and is documented here:
in Jwm-498. Note the tooltip with the desktop number too.
Perhaps my gui could be a bit more informative.

Where did you get that /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal2 file? The autohide option is in my /root/.jwmrc-tray file, and I didn't change that. All I changed was the one line in /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal and /root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal2from

<Desktops width="2" height="1"/>

(2 desktops as default)
