Goodstuff Questions

Hi all:

I'm toying around with creating an icon bar using GoodStuff.  My Fvwm version is 1.2.  And my problem is this: I would like ot have xclock, xload, and xbiff displayed while running in the icon bar.  But when I start fvwm, only a pair of quotation maarks show up.  My system.fvwmrc file contains the following lines:

*GoodStuff " "        " "   Swallow "xclock" xclock -bg gray 60 &
*GoodStuff " "        " "   Swallow "xload" xload -bg gray 60 &
*GoodStuff " "        " "   Swallow "xbiff" xbiff -bg gray 60 &
....

Any ideas on what I should do?  Is Swallow only supported in later versions of fvwm?  Any help is appreciated.  Thanks in advance

  I use 1.24 (or something like that) at work and 2.0.42 at home.
Here are the line for the 1.24 (.fvwmrc):

*GoodStuff - whatever Swallow "xclock" xclock -bg \#908090 -geometry -1500-1500 -padding 4 &
for xclock (you can do this with other xapps).
and
*GoodStuff - whatever SwallowModule "FvwmPager" FvwmPager 0 0
for the pager....

'hope this will help,

1. GoodStuff Questions/Problem???

I have two GoodStuff questions/problems.

1)      When I click on my XTerm buttons to start up a new windows,
the button stays depress!  This doesn't happen on my other buttons.

2)      Is there a way (or another program) to get a decent digital
clock in my GoodStuff button bar?  Currently I'm using the analog
clock, which is hard to read.  It I load xclock -d I get the date and
seconds, which I don't want.  Has anyone run xdaliclock in GoodStuff?

Current configuration:

###################### GoodStuff button-bar ################################
# Colors
*GoodStuffFore Black
*GoodStuffBack SteelBlue

# Font
*GoodStuffFont -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

# Geometry - really likes to pick its own size, but giving a position is OK
*GoodStuffGeometry -1-1

# Layout: specify rows or columns, not both
*GoodStuffRows 1

# Define the buttons to use.....
*GoodStuff -  clock.xpm   Swallow "xclock" xclock -bg \SteelBlue -geometry
 -1500-1500 -padding 0
*GoodStuff - whatever Swallow "xload" xload -bg \SteelBlue &
