PostPosted: Fri 25 Nov 2005, 03:22    Post subject:  Intresting Screenshots  

Believe me what you are going to see below are puppy screenshots.

To achieve this effect I have used
1. idesk with the transparent icons turned on
2. windows fonts
3. wallpapers from xp
4. Openbox / Oroborus + Fbpanel
6. Xi180 kdrive for puppy

idesk is available as idesk.pup
I assume that most of the people using puppy would be windows refugees.
So no need to download newer fonts for puppy they are already there on your computer.

In XP -> copy the C:\windows\Fonts folder to your /mnt/home ie the directory where your pup file is stored. Then type this in a terminal
Code:
ln -s /mnt/home/Fonts /root/.font


KDE users need to install the font using control center. open control center and click on the last branch. In this the 2nd sub branch is font installer. Click on it. Click on add font. typr /root/.font in the dialog and then select all the files in the dialog. Click on open. Installation will start. If it asks about overwriting Click on overwrite all.

Xp wallpapers are stored in c:\windows\web\wallpapers. Copy them to /usr/share/backgrounds

Openbox is available in the KDE for testers post in cutting edge section.
You can also use oroborus window manager.
Fbpanel is also available as a dotpup

Xi810 applicable to on those who have i810 hardware , is available as a pupget. There are some errors in xwin that will get corrected in 1.0.7 and then this can be sucessfully used by all i180 puppy users.

Jan,
No that worked for me. However if your pup file has space and your fonts folder is not very large than you can try moving the fonts to /root/.font

also take a lok at these topics

Hello there,
Well, so far so good..But I am doubting what one does in this way may be against the norms, as thay are directly copied from windows. Is that really needed?
Think it over..
Regards
Max

It's just a picture. Maybe somebody can upload it here. I don't have XP either or I'd do it.

I think Xpde looks less like Windows than an optimized Theme (Icewm + Gtk).

Xpde was programmed with Kylix (Linux-Delphi), and does not look exactly like Windows.
Kylix itself uses Wine-Libraries for the IDE (so Kylix itself looks like a Windows-app), whereas the compiled binaries use Gtk.

A XP look fot the fluxbox dektop.

Ingredients
1. Fluxbox + xp theme for fluxbox
2. gtk1 - xfce4 engine + redmond colors
3. gtk2 - metatheme 0.0.6 plastik xp engine + xp colors (very light wt engine much faster and better than gtk qt)
4. kde - plastik + redmond xp colors

metatheme is an attempt to make a unified look for various tool kits. It is a very early stage of development at present and supports gtk+, qt, java at present. Later it would support gtk1, firefox, mozilla , openoffice ...

most interesing about meta is that it can use .msstyle files so that we can have windows like widgets in linux.
