configuring WindowMaker


What is that little pager thing called in WindowMaker, with the paper clip, and how to compile WMaker to not include that in the start up, or have it included when running WMaker? Or is there an easier way to get it to no longer be on the Desktop?

Because I cannot remove it, and I do not use it. I use the mouse wheel to switch desktops.

AND

when I compile this and install it, finally getting it to work with menumaker and the themes both default and user..

the default icons images are not there even though the icons are. (now)

Code:
 ./configure --libdir=/usr/lib64 \
    --with-gnustepdir=/usr/lib64/GNUstep  \
    --enable-usermenu --enable-modelock --enable-randr
that is what I am down to using.

I did a hack on the icons, I just copied them into the system dir where needed.

I still cannot as of yet find anything on how to get rid of the paperclip.

You need to run the WPrefs.app -from the menu probably Applications -> Appeareance -> Preferences Utility. You can also play with some direct edits to config files under ~GNUstep/Defaults

Here's a handy WMAttributes which turns off the dock, the clip, and all the icons which show when an application is running or minimized:
Code:
{
  "ROX-Pinboard" = {
    NoResizebar = Yes;
    NoBorder = Yes;
    KeepInsideScreen = Yes;
    NoHideOthers = Yes;
    SkipWindowList = Yes;
    DontSaveSession = Yes;
    NoCloseButton = Yes;
    NoTitlebar = Yes;
    NoMiniaturizeButton = Yes;
    Omnipresent = Yes;
  };
  "ROX-Filer.ROX-Filer" = {
    NoAppIcon = Yes;
    SharedAppIcon = No;
    KeepInsideScreen = Yes;
    NoHideOthers = Yes;
    DontSaveSession = Yes;
  };
  D4X = {
    KeepInsideScreen = Yes;
  };
  DockApp = {
    NoAppIcon = NO;
  };
  "." = {
    NoAppIcon = Yes;
  };
  "*" = {
    NoAppIcon = Yes;
  };
}
There's code there for rox-filer as icon handler. I use 'taskbar' as a panel, but you can use any other panel/taskbar app -or even the panel which rox provides.

A note about 'installing that WMAttributes(or WMState) file -you need to copy it over when wmaker is not running. Make a copy of your currents ones before, of course.

thanks for the tip,
and
Yeah I was looking at them config files in HOME/GNUstep... and was wondering where the list of keyWords is kept. So I'd know what to type in them "functions" to get it to do what I wanted.

CaMelBaCkInG random phrases and restarting to see if that worked is too tedious.

edit
ok, NM.. I needed to type in the proper search phrase..
