Hello,

apparently the 64-bit repo has the latest version of JWM (Joe's Window Manager), which at the time of writing this, is version 2.2.2, see:

Hi Juanito...

Upgrading to this new 32-bit JWM results in a failed boot to GUI.

My system has been booting without errors and this was the only extension updated.

Hope this helps, my bootscreen indicated fribidi.tcz not found.

Will revert to the old JWM until i hear about a fix.

Thanks - nitram.

If it says that fribidi is not found then download and load fribidi  ;)

Can you please upgrade the repos to JWM 2.3.6?

It has a nice aerosnap feature now:
