I think xhost should go into Xprogs.core.tcz also.

jwm is missing because microcore + core elements is now wm agnostic, ie you choose the wm you prefer and install it as an extension (there are quite a few to choose from, including of course jwm.tce{e,z}).

interface to wm is via some interface (wm_initmenu, wm_makemenu, wm_restart, wm_setbackground script interfacde), where wm is indicated in ~/.desktop.

.desktop also contains the name of the icons manager, so  I may guess than in some future release, wbar might be out of the core and some mechanism will let you choose another icon manager.

wbar is started by the .xsession file, simply comment out or remove the line that invokes it and
make sure the .xsession file is in your backup.

Note: the file .desktop is no longer used in 2.x. Your .xsession should be updated and then .desktop can and should be deleted.

You can boot with option noicons to disable wbar.

Hooks to support other icon managers is currently being looked into.

Hi!

I'm just making a "testdrive" of MC 2.1 and after what I've seen it's very good. Thanks to all of you who have worked with it!!! I want to thank Jason for the post about getting rid of wbar, and now I have the clean desktop I want. I was thinking about changing window manager but this seems to work even better. So I'm happy without wbar (even though I think it's kind of cool and a good way to have icons if you want them) which cleans the desktop of icons (as you understand I'm no big fan of icons). Thanks again and keep up the incredible work you are doing with TC and MC (my favourite)!

Have fun,
meo

PS I'm in favor of extracting wbar and perhaps making an extension out of it DS

This option (and maybe few others) is missing in the Wiki at
