The pekwm port updates this year to the 2005 dev snapshots don't seem to include the themes that used to ship with it, and the one theme it does ship with is mostly incomplete, making the pekwm window manager almost useless since it lacks window buttons and window borders to drag. The port files also don't tell the user where to get a theme to use. I see http://www.hewphoria.com/ was only mentioned in the update pr.
Point the user to some working themes, or add one back into the port since the authors seem to have removed them, or revert to the last 2004 snapshot, or mark the port broken so users dont upgrade to/install a broken window manager?
How-To-Repeat: Install the latest pekwm port, rename ~/.pekwm if exists and run it. Note the lack of window manager buttons and frame borders.
PR forwarded to maintainer.
Dear maintainer, could you look at this PR ?
Pekwm's default theme changed.. that's the way it's 'default' theme is
supposed to look.
However.. pekwm/files/patch-aa wasn't patching correctly (dunno why it
didn't error out) which made theme selection impossible. This patch
http://bsd-unix.org/downloads/pekwm-patch-aa.diff should fix that.
cd /usr/ports/x11-wm/pekwm && \
patch -p1 < /path/to/pekwm-patch-aa.diff && \
rm files/patch-aa.orig && \
portupgrade -fx pekwm
I was planning on creating a pekwm-themes port (collected from
hewphoria.com). You can get them from
A patch has been committed, thanks for your submission.
