JWM documentation now builtin

February 07, 2022 — BarryK

I have started work on a radical change to the desktop user interface.

ROX-Filer is more than just a file manager, in Easy it is also used to manage the icons on the desktop and the wallpaper. I am interested in taking that responsibility away from ROX, and reduce it to just being a file manager.

The experiment is that the desktop icons will now be in the JWM (Joe's Window Manager) systray. Hopefully, without the systray becoming too crowded.

JWM documentation is online, see links via here:

However, given how vital JWM is to EasyOS, I have downloaded the documentation files. They will now be builtin to Easy, at /usr/share/doc/jwm

This post is just a heads-up, to let anyone who might be interested, know of this convenience of having local docs.
