~JWM is a window manager for the X11 window system/ display server. It is built in to most Puppy version include [[Slacko]] and [[PrecisePuppy]]. Install if not built-in or to update to newer version.
~The appearance of JWM can be changed by use of themes, which in essence are simple text files. You can get themes to change the look of JWM in your Puppy in several ways: text to copy & paste in a configuration file, or a dotpup file to download & install.
~In the Puppy forum, there is now a thread called [[http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=23260 JWM Themes Exchange]], where people are posting text configurations, dotpups and screenshots of how they've modified JWM and which you can use to modify your own.

----
Below is an example of how Puppy user CrustyLobster modifed his JWM.
http://i6.tinypic.com/14igyh0.jpg

I started creating this in Puppy 2

Click on Home
Right click **Display / Show Hidden**
A directory called .jwm will appear

Open one of the themes in the themes directory in Geany text editor
(right click and open as text)
resave it with a new name for example I opened **jwm-puppy-xp** and saved as **jwm-puppy-vista**
You can use the screen colour picker in Puppy (under graphics) to get hex values to modify in this file
or use something like this
http://wellstyled.com/tools/colorscheme2/index-en.html

to make the theme appear in JWM themes
alter the file themeslist
