Hello, all.

Version 8 of the wmx window manager is out!

In this picture, it is running on Puppy Precise 5.4.3.



From top to bottom
* conky one-liner
* ipager
* /root/.wmx folder
* puppy menu by click of middle mouse button (Graphics sub-menu
__ with layout lines)
* xclock with current day in sideways title bar
* bmpanel2 with transparent Light-T theme (customized).

The source is available from author Chris Cannam's site. I've given a little
more detail about the new features on the wmx thread.

BFN.

Mike, do you have an already-made lite version of Windows 7/8? If so make it available for download and ask Ally to mirror it as a derivative of Puppy. Very Happy

well at around 4GB I estimate about 12 hours to upload if the connection behaves... so might not rush into that.
Thats assuming I can zip up hard links....

Its sat in a corner waiting for a reason to co exist for now...

I was not offering...

By the way the original install of 7 professional was over 12GB.

on the bar at bottom left)

BFN.

ey up... its (older) xfce4.....
but rox pinboard but I realised I don't use the icons on that one since there is wbar, menu and quick launchers.
Icons seem overkill plus surprisingly desktop icons cannot be accessed when programs are running. Smile

My Puppy is on a laptop, so the surroundings change often.

Dell Inspiron, 1GB ram, 1TB hard drive. Screenshot is Lucid 5.2.8 full install on sda1. I just finished creating the background image in Gimp and I'm kind of proud of it. Also currently have TahrPuppy frugal on sda2. sda3 is storage and there is a 1gb swap partition, too. wbar cleaned up the desktop nicely, though I may try some other docks. I've only been using puppy for about a month, so I'm still learning a lot. (by the way, is there some code I could add here to resize the image more appropriately? Or do I just have to reference a url of a smaller copy of the image?)

Thanks. I just thought there might be a tag (like the html example below) that would specify the size that the image is displayed here, without me having to resize the image on my computer then re-upload it back to the web and change the link in my posting so it points to the newly resized image url.
