|i want to decorate the jwm window and tray with pixmaps, instead of just simple colors|
Too bad. You do have a couple choices. You can use one color if you want things to be flat; you can use two color values separated by a colon if you want a gradient.
If you want more than that, try another small window manager that allows theming with image files -- oroborus and enlightenment both allow that. I don't consider enlightenment, with its quirky and peculiar libraries, to be "small."
EDIT: FWIW, jwm is a lot faster sans icons. I removed them from my DSL menus (I run three root menus) and got marginally faster response. I also removed them from the default menu in Vector Linux and am getting noticeably better performance -- the toll of 60-something mixed scalable and 48x48 icons is pretty steep, and removing them from the menu (and getting rid of their ugly bloated wallpaper) resulted in nearly halving jwm's RAM use.
