No, we don't.
If you find a source code or a binary archive of the application I can make a deb of it to be available from our repository.

I will send a message to the Puppylinux guys and ask for it. Hopefully they will help.

I don't think they will make a deb, binary files will be fine so I can make deb myself.

You can download the .pet file on http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=56153 and then change the extension to .tar.gz. That's all a pet file is. The source files should be in there.

No rush, the .jwmrc file works too (sometimes).  Thanks!

I forked it last night and it works already on my Debian testing.
But...
Still a few bugs and I have to finish something else now, but it'll be ready soon.

The app is useable, but it doesn't work as it should be. It uses old libs, one of them 'gtkdialog3' I found and forked from pet package.
A few options such as: Tray management, Window focus Model and Application launch buttons in tray I removed due to missing 'xdialog'.
There are two ways to get them back:
1. Find 'xdialog' package (pet or something)
2. Rewrite a few scripts to be working with zenity (or yad) instead of xdialog.
The theme launcher starts, but it doesn't change anything.
I made some improvement due to old tools or libs and directories (puppy users use /root, we don't)  used by the applications.
To conclude it is a base if somebody would like to contribute and improve the app.
It is in sparky repo, so install as normal:
Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get install jwmconfig
If you'd like to contribute, get tar package from sourceforge:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/sparkylinux/files/files/dev/
Enjoy :)

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 jwmconfig : Depends: libgtk2.0-0:i386 but it is not installable
             Depends: libglade2-0:i386 but it is not installable

Looks like you run 64bit system.
Add support for i386 (as root):
Code: [Select]
dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
Then try again.

The funny thing is both of these dependencies are already marked as installed in synaptic manager.

I tried "Synaptic Package Manager" and this is what I got.

Quote
jwmconfig:
 Depends: gtkdialog3 but it is not going to be installed

 Depends: gtk-chtheme but it is not going to be installed

 Depends: gxmessage but it is not going to be installed

 Depends: libgtk2.0-0:i386  but it is not installable

 Depends: libglade2-0:i386  but it is not installable

I clicked on "Architecture" vertical tab on Synaptic Package Manager

and I noticed two options...

arch: all

and there is no jwm here

arch: i386

all jwm is here but, jwmconfig doesn't get installed.

Edit:

I guess that jwmconfig doesn't get installed because of this... 686-pae

I don't know, it's just a wild guess.
