JWM 464 with i18n patch

January 31, 2010 — BarryK
I have been adopting shinobar's scripts that he developed for Japanese Puppy, with a view to making Woof (the "Puppy builder") more international-friendly.

Recently, shinobar has patched JWM, the window manager used in most puppies, for i18n support of the menu. Forum post:

I have compiled this in Quirky:

Builders of other puppies could either compile it themselves, or use my PET package.

Note, Quirky has a recent fribidi package and I had to hack the JWM source:

jwm 464-patched-i18n (patched by shinobar)

edit src/jwm.h:
/*BK # include <fribidi/fribidi_char_sets_utf8.h> replace with...*/
# include <fribidi/fribidi-char-sets-list.h>
# include <fribidi/fribidi-char-sets.h>

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --disable-confirm --enable-fribidi
# make
