2 Questions about PekWM..


This is indeed my first time using PekWM on Slack 10, anyway, my questions are:

1) How do I get a start bar/tool bar, I know it's possible sense I've seen multiple screenshots with it

and

2) How do I get a transparent terminal, unlike KDE, PekWM doesn't offer this option.


Many thanks,
e0r.

it's very simple.

after you've ./configure && make && make install, pico ~/.xinitrc, at the bottom put a # before your old windows manager so it should look like this


# Start the window manager:
# /usr/X11/fluxbox

then add this line to the bottom of it

exec /usr/local/bin/pekwm


reboot, startx

should work fine .
