====Window Managers with Special Effects====
[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager Window managers]] (WM) control the placement & appearance of windows. The default WM in Puppy is [[JoesWindowManager JWM]], a very light and basic but effective WM. However there are many other window managers (& windowing systems and desktop environments) available and some offer special effects like transparency & 3D. Primary examples are:
- Beryl
- Compiz
- Compiz-Fusion
- Metisse
- Project Looking Glass
- Xfwm
===Understanding these Effects===
To get an idea of the difference these effects can make to how to use your computer, static pictures alone won't help.
- Watch some videos. Here's [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=IGnQTfI4Iqc a short one]] (1 min 11 secs) showing Beryl, Metisse & Looking Glass.
- Try them out for yourself
See below for some info, links, videos etc to find out more.
===Beryl===
Originally a fork of Compiz. Now officially re-merged into Compiz to create Compiz-Fusion. Some people still prefer Beryl.
- BerylUsage, for more info about using Beryl in Puppy.
- [[http://www.beryl-project.org/ Beryl homepage]]
- [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beryl_(window_manager) Beryl wikipedia page]]
==Video==
- [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=6102444362173636066&q=puppy+beryl&total=3&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=0 Puppy 2.13 with Beryl 0.2.1]] (2 mins 15 secs)
- [[http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2690866008461615113&q=beryl&total=5679&start=0&num=10&so=0&type=search&plindex=6 Short video]] (47 secs)
- [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=VniBApxcFzU Beryl demonstration video]] (5 mins 39 secs)
===Compiz===
Now merged with Beryl into Compiz-Fusion, but still available as Compiz Core, without Fusion additions.
- [[http://compiz.org/ Compiz homepage]]
- [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz wikipedia page]]
==Video==
- [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=utv0I9F3blM Compiz on Ubuntu]] (1 min 36 secs)
===Compiz-Fusion===
The "hot" special effects window manager, with many plug-ins to add different effects.
- PuppyNOP > Compiz-Fusion & Wobbly NOP: combines Xfce with Compiz-Fusion.
- [[http://www.compiz-fusion.org/ Compiz-Fusion homepage]]
- [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz_Fusion Compiz-Fusion wikipedia page]]
==Video==
- [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=Op2JK12ERA0 Wobbly Puppy NOP experimental in action]] (2 mins 48 secs)
- [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u30ciyNkPAk Compiz-Fusion on Puppy 3.00]] (6 mins 11 secs)
===Metisse===
A somewhat different concept from straightforward 3D WMs like Compiz-Fusion. Apparently lighter on computer resources than the Compiz family.

==Video==
- [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=OrwE2T6cLMk Video of PLG on Linux]] (3 mins 54 secs)
===Xfwm===
Xfwm is the default WM of the Xfce desktop environment, capable of true transparency & shadows. While not as flexible as Metisse or Compiz-Fusion, it is very stable.
- [[http://www.xfce.org/projects/xfwm4/ Xfwm homepage]]

<font size="2">WM means "Windows Manager".
<br>
'Windows Manager' + 'File Manager' = 'Explorer' in Win XP<br><p>
The windows Manager that comes with Puppy 1.0.5 is called <a href="http://tinypic.com/dcsegm.jpg">JWM</a>. Personally I prefer another WM called <a href="http://tinypic.com/dcseo0.jpg">IceWM</a> (available as a DotPup), which is very easy to use. <a href="http://tinypic.com/dcseag.jpg">FVWM95</a>, the default WM prior to version 1.0.5, is now available as a PupGet package. The behaviour of WM is steered by configuration files, e.g. for jwm this is /root/.jwmrc. They are loaded once the graphical desktop boots up. So if you make changes to these files, you may need to restart the WM (e.g. by Start -> Shutdown -> Restart...)

Install:
<ul><li>Download it <a href="http://www.murga.org/~puppy/download.php?id=574">here</a> (<a href="http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?p=8357#8357">more info</a>). Click to install. If you need a
GUI configuration tool, get the <a href="DotPupsContributions">Icewm Control Panel</a>.
(<a href="http://www.icewm.org/">official site</a>)</ul>
All modifying can be done by editing the config files
in /root/.icewm (hidden).<br><br>Define Hotkeys:
<ul><li>Edit /root/.icewm/keys (backup first!). It's in a hidden
directory. To see the directory, right-click in Rox, choose
'Display -> Show Hidden'. See a sample file <a href="icewmkeys">here</a>.</ul>
Set Preference:
<ul><li>Edit /root/.icewm/preferences. Use the search function
of any text editor to find the item you want to change.
<li>Example:
<font color=steelblue># ShowTaskBar=1 # 0/1</font>
this entry means that task bar is shown by default,
to hide the task bar, change the line to:
<font color=steelblue>ShowTaskBar=0 # 0/1</font>
symbol '#' is used to comment out the line,
you need to remove it after making any changes.
<li><a href="icewmpref">More</a></ul>
Window Options:
<ul><li>Edit /root/.icewm/winoptions
<li>Example:
<font color=steelblue>mozilla-bin.dTitleBar: 0</font> = don't show Mozilla's title bar
<li><a href="icewmwinopt">More</a></ul>
Start Menu:
<ul><li>Edit /root/.icewm/menu
<li>Example:
<font color=steelblue>prog Bubbles ballorange16 bubbles.tcl</font>
below the line <font color=steelblue>menu Games face-win24 {</font>
will add a program called "Bubbles" in the Games
sub-menu, with the icon "ballorange16" (located in
/usr/local/lib/X11/mini-icons). Click on the entry will
execute "/usr/local/bin/bubbles.tcl"
<li><a href="icewmmenu">More</a></ul>
Usage:
<ul><li>Press 'Ctrl+Esc' to bring up the Start Menu.
Move the menu and sub-menus up and down by rolling
the mouse wheel.
<li>Press 'Ctrl+Alt+Space' to get a quick command line in
task bar
<li>To put an icon on the right side of the task bar: right-click
a window's title bar and select Tray Icon.
<li>If you don't want IceWM set the background, exit to the
prompt (Ctrl+backspace) and restart X by typing "startX
icewm"</ul>
Themes:
<ul><li>If the theme is available as a <a href="dpup">DotPup</a>, install it like
you would with any DotPup. If you downloaded a
theme.tar.gz file from somewhere else:
1. From the start menu select
"Utilities --> guiTAR archiver" (or TkZip)
2. Open the downloaded file
3. Extract the file. It extracts to a new folder.
4. Move the whole folder to: /root/.icewm/themes
5. Your new theme will appear in the 'Themes' menu of
the start menu.
