Another great step forward team tinycore!

I am running 2.4rc1 as a guest os on Vista qemu 0.10.5.  FLWM looks much better with the top side titles. So far so good.

jwm not loading with new .xsession, .Xdefaults.  Tried norestore; ran out of time, so haven't tried anything else yet...maybe I haven't read something.

I'm not sure how the flwm titling is suppose to work but in rox-filer the title bar displays the folder location instead of the program title (which I actually find more useful).

There is much interaction with flwm titles. Try naviagting to different pages and the window title changes with the webpage title, or flpicsee.

I see what you mean.

I just installed both watcher and flit and noticed watcher ends up on top of flit. Is only one or the other to be used at one time?

.Xdefaults only change is aterm transparency

.xsession only change is concerns flit and watcher

Window manager specification and loading has not changed. jwm working fine.

Note: jwm extension has watcher as part of the extension, so you are likely to see watcher overlay flit. The jwm extension needs to be updated, to removed watcher, as watcher is offered as an extension and has been updated. If you so choose to use watcher then you will likely need to adust if you arleady have it swallowed in jwm taskbar. But such is your customizations.

Look at .xsession and you can see that using -g option to watcher you can position to your desire.
Such is your customizations.

Not loading jwm with or without watcher extension (tried latest jwm-snapshot and jwm)  What am I missing? Thanks.

I was running Microcore when it tested OK. On Tiny Core seems to be a permission problem when trying to update /etc/sysconfig/desktop from jwm startup script. Likely the extension needs updated.
Work around use desktop=jwm

That fixed it.  Also, the /opt/sed  permission error is gone...  Thanks for all the great work!
