Thanks, Raffy! But I just realized I'm trying to upload through a work proxy...ugh; don't know how to do that.

Let's see if I can get it to work just via an attachment.

First are the "normal" sized icons. Download then unpack them in /usr/local/lib/X11/themes...

Then, when you want to change to the xp icons just click on your icon switcher and you'll have that as one of your options.

Hey, it looks like that worked!

Ok, here is the smaller xp icon set. They are labelled the same (except for the title of course) so that they will work, but they are smaller (32x32). Like I said, I had some issue with a couple of icons and rox resizing them, but otherwise they look good.

So, download and unpack in the aforementioned location and then, if you've unpacked both of them there, you will have xp-con and a xp-con-small icons sets. Cool

Oops! I figured out my errors...the "drive48.png" icon should be "drives48.png" and I didn't have a "chat48.png" icon. So, here is a screenshot and the updated "xp-cons-small" icon set. Then I'll post the "xp-cons" large set on the next post.

**Now complete under 4.2.

Subject description: Screenshot
 

Heres a screenshot from Ecopup 0.7.3.1 . We use icewm and the WinXP-Blue theme over a tried and tested puppy linux 2.15ce base. It was designed for use in an internet cafe where the users expected a standard look and feel. It certainly goes a long way in convincing new people to use puppy. Weve also customised Firefox to emulate Internet Explorer 7.



The previous version was based on a "Vista" look, but Vista proved that unpopular that weve reverted to an XP look to win over windows users. They seem relieved to see it again. Weve found that before very long, they figure how to change the icewm theme (something they see as a great additional feature over windows) and dont stick with "teletubby" theme very long.

Just wondering if you customised Firefox to look like Explorer then why the 2 desktop icons,? Does the "E" open Fire and Does the Firefox icon open Firefox? 2 icons opening the same program?

Ps you only have 1 quick launch icon on your taskbar, maybe put a calculator, and the explorer icon also Wink my wife who only uses xp, loves the shortcut to the calculator on the taskbar and also explorer.
Plus 4 destops? most new users would have problems using 1,lol just kidding but what if they weren't paying attention and accidentally click say destop #3 and they lost everything and didn't know what they did? I would remove all but the main desktop. Less late night phone calls that way Smile

also do you included the silver xp icewm theme also?

There is a shortcut menu already with firefox on it, thought I havnt figured out how to add the vertical ">>" menu to it yes. The explorer icon and the firefox icon actually both open firefox! It was put there as well as the firefox icon for people that hadnt even heard of that.

The four desktops were confusing as you suggest, and the last release at the cybercafe didint actually have them. However, since weve started doing more domestic or small business work, they are so useful weve actually included them I do get to give half an hour of tuition within the standard one hour we charge for our callout....thats after installing ecopup for them!

Any ideas on how to add the toolbar i.e. icon and the verticle stripes?

P.S.

Hi no, I just linked that wallpaper from www.1990toys.com, which i found by doing a google image search for "teletubbies XP". Im sure there must be a higher resolution version around somewhere.

This one is going in the next ecopup release for sure.
