Does anyone know how to stop windowmaker from blanking out the monitor? Can seem to find the setting anywhere.
Also, has anyone ever used Docker? It sounds like a nice program for showing applets like Gaim but I can't find any documentation ANYWHERE that shows how to use it.
Blanking the monitor is done by XFree86, disable DPMS in /etc/X11/XF86Config.
Docker "just works", ie just run 'docker' and it should automatically capture all system tray icons. It was made for *box window managers and doesn't work with all window managers. I haven't tested it with WindowMaker, but somehow it didn't fetch the gaim applet in Evilwm...Also, it does not work for gnome 1.4.x applets which is what the gaim in Arch has. Gaim CVS works though...
