WindowMaker Clock MDK 9.2

When I start WindowMaker and run "ps aux" I see a process for wmCalClock-WindowMaker with a variety of flags set, which refers to the Clock set up by default on Mandrake 9.2

Can someone tell me where in the startup scripts this is initialised? The d*mn thing is set to bleep on the hour every hour and I want to modify it's startup flags. I've looked everywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Solved it. Just thought I'd post the solution if anyone wanted to customise the Clock in WindowMaker.

The file to edit is ~/GNUstep/Defaults/WMState

There is another file that refers to wmCalClock,down in the /usr/share/mdk/WindowMaker directory but it appears to be ignored.

WMState must be edited outside of WindowMaker, say at a text prompt, as the file will reset itself if you edit the file via a virtual terminal within WindowMaker.

type man wmCalClock for a list of options for customising the clock. Else, simply remove "-b 100" to get rid of that annoying hourly bleep!
