Jlime Winter is a "proof of concept" of a new GUI for JLime Vargtass userland (680/690/620lx/660lx machines).
It replaces the current Jlime WMs (icewm and dwm) to try to reach specific features.
This new "proof of concept" GUI for Hp Palmtop/Jornada can help to show us
how well different GUI ideas work.
The main goals (and current ones) are:
Information on how to install Jlime can be found in our official Manual Installation Guide (Partioned Method)
If you don't know how to install JLime on your HP Palmtop 620lx / 660lx you would like to read this "Howto Install" (for 620lx/660lx users)
You can use the main menu (Fig. 1.) to run applications using the touchscreen or keyboard shortcuts:
|ATL+d||switch to the Desktop (and main menu)|
|ALT+TAB||go to next window|
|CTRL+e||run tErminal (rxvt)|
|CTRL+t||run Text editor (gtkedit)|
|CTRL+m||run Mailer (sylpheed)|
|CTRL+w||run Web browser (dillo)|
|ATL+c||run Chat client (bitlbee+xchat+scripts for different protocols : msn, gtalk, jabber, etc).|
|CTRL+f||run File manager (xfe)|
|CTRL+a||run cAlendar (calcurse)|
|CTRL+o||run Other apps menu||CTRL+p||run media Player (specific for Jlime)|
|CTRL+k||close/delete the current window|
|CTRL+ALT+k||run window killer menu|
|CTRL+i||run wIndow chooser menu|
Keep this keyboard shortcuts list on hand :).
Maybe the most useful keyboard shorcuts are ALT+TAB, CTRL+o (fast apps menu), CTRL+k (close current window), ALT+d (go to main menu / show system information: date, power and networking status).
Below there are themes contributed by users. So if you want to change the default theme download the one you like and replace the /opt/jlime/winter3.png file.

The core of this new GUI for Jornadas is jlime-winter.c. It is an X11 based main menu with sound on touchscreen which uses ratpoison and ratmenu on Xfbdev as WM and application launcher. The userland has custom applications fullscreen configured, and a new chat and simple player environment.
It works on Blizzard's userland vargtass 5.0 so if you need help about a specific application you can run the "web browser" and read the nice documentation from the home page.
I have not had time the last days to continue improving jlime-winter so below are the known bugs:
We need to add/develop a jlime configuration tool to set different configuration options :
