Joe's Window Manager, the original used in Tiny Core v1.x
You must have Tiny Core v2.0rc2 or newer to get dynamic menus.

Code: [Select]
Title:          jwm.tce
Description:    Joe's Window Manager
Version:        2.0.1.
Author:         Joe Wingbermuehle
Original-site:  http://joewing.net/programs/jwm/
Copying-policy: GPL
Size:           66K
Extension_by:   roberts
Comments:       Requires Tiny Core v2.0rc2 or newer.
Change-log:    
Current:        2009/05/16 Original window manager used in Tiny Core v1.x

I encourage any fan of JWM to take over the support and updates to this extension.
I post it as a legacy option for those that like JWM and as an example of the dynamic menu iterface files used in Tiny Core v2.0rc2+ see:

jwm_initmenu
jwm_makemenu
jwm_restart

 :)  Thanks Robert - so no more need to patch jwm, if you don't want to use watcher.

All it took was commenting it out in .xsession (line 14)

It was removed so one would not have two copies (versions) of watcher which is being developed separately and has been updated!  Commenting out a line does not provide such.

I have a copy in /usr/bin, but it doesn't load to jwm with the comment.

Perhaps you still don't understand. If you grab the lastest version of watcher, which now has battery monitoring support,  you would have two copies, one in /usr/bin and one in /usr/local/bin. Whether you wish it on the desktop or swallowed by jwm is not the reason for the removal of the old version of watcher which was embedded in the jwm extension.

Maybe I misunderstood JoXo009, but I think HE was patching JWM to get rid of watcher. The response was to him, not you  :)

jwm doesnt work with TC 2.4
« Reply #13 on: October 10, 2009, 01:10:49 PM »
The incompatibility problem discussed in rc4 seems to exist with final TC 2.4 too.

Appbrowser downloaed JWM doesn't backup in TC 2.4.

Probably the rc version of JWM would be needed. But that version seems to be disappeared - the release candidate folder is empty now.

So mayby the official Approwser version should be updated to that disappeared rc version.

If the JWM rc version of jwm.tcz file should be lost - I've got a downloaded copy which I could supply.
