Dreamlight Tint2 (panel configuration)

As I am currently exploring the possibilities of JWM (Joe’s window manager: http://joewing.net/projects/jwm/) which is a lightweight and a robust desktop environment I found myself tweaking things once more while creating a new JWM theme configuration which I named as Dreamlight.

One way to fix this is of course to restart the computer but there is also a better way: use if network configuration commands. Continue reading
