As for that gtk theme, it's "smooth-peachy-clean" forcibly taken from vector.


You got super pudgy penguins Laughing
Love 'em, so cuddly.

I was up surfing and generally farting around one night and came across it. I don't remember where I got it from, but I did not make myself. It really makes the Neon icon theme in Precise pop out. I can send it to you if you like later on tonight, if ya like.
I'm a kinda forum newbie is there a way to send you an attachment?
Thanks for digging my Color Feng Shui!!! Razz
Sincerely,
Haut_Dawg


Edit: Nevermind, I think I figured it out??

@GustavoYz - That's cool. Can you give a little more information? What Pup are you using? What is the panel? How did you make the terminal the background? When the terminal is set as the background can you still use right click on the desktop or do you open everything in the terminal?

Not much new for me. Still on SlimPup with a new wallpaper, my new style "fb_papaya", and Conky:

@BuddhaDog: Glad you like it. Very Happy
Is not the background itself, I just launch it at startup with the right "geometry" (set it on Xdefaults) and make it translucent by 100% with tint and background white (wont work fully with any other colors, although will be very translucent).
I used my silly script to start the terminal, like this:
Code:
CONSOLADOR.sh white white '' 100

As it have the additional settings for urxvt that I use -and don't remind-.
Takes some silly .Xdefaults setup to make the terminal border-less (I use `whaw` if some re-dimension/tiling if needed).
I can launch web/man pages with middle clicks, but I use dmenu and/or OpenShot keybingdings for applications. Panel up there is tint and conky on the lower edge of screen.
Im using latest Slacko.

One more... nothing new besides wallpaper, actually. Razz

@Haut_dawg - You could try installing the Fluxbox .pet from here: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=81317
This will give you transparency in the menus. I run it by typing "startx fluxbox". Then you just go on "modding" from there. If you try it and have any questions I'll do my best to help.

@ Haut_Dawg - Just posting to also give me regards - love that desktop setup with the Precise Puppy icons and that background....it all really melds together so well, and I'm a big fan of "dark" themes with high contrast icons/text, so I LOVE it! Very Happy

Thank you, BuddhaDog. I installed it. Now its a matter of finding the missing libs. It seems to be a common occurrence in various Puppies. Is there in easier way to locate these? Rolling Eyes

@darkstrike I agree. I wish I could make everything dark. When I first booted up Precise that super-white default wallpaper, it blew my eyes out. The Neon icons are awesome though. I wish they could cast a neon glow against the desktop. THAT would rule.
