Setup JWM Window Manager for Raspberry Pi
by Lewis Loflin
See JWM wiki. JWM (Joe's Window Manager) is a featherweight window manager for the X11 Window System written in C; it's under active development and is maintained by Joe Wingbermuehle. JWM uses approximately 5 MB of resident memory under normal operating conditions.
Used in Damn Small Linux, Puppy Linux, and other lightweight distributions is fast and easy to configure. It should be used with the Rox-Filer pinboard, pcmanfm or perhaps idesk. Install JWM:
$ sudo apt-get install jwm x11-apps
I already have a menu built for this project do the following in your home directory from a terminal:
$ wget https://bristolwatch.com/rpi/dl/jwmrc
$ mv jwmrc .jwmrc
The above renamed jwmrc to .jwmrc is a hidden file. In .xinitrc uncomment jwm.
To edit the JWM menu:
~ $ leafpad ~/.jwmrc
Go by this sample code noting path to icon an command.
