If the version did not change very often and it was only PUPPY... it would not be an issue.. but since we have many Versions of Puppy and many, many flavors.... it would be nice to see the version same as we see the clock. It is simply a useful item on the screen. Personally I do not have a preference for where it is located...on the main menu button - "start button" is fine even in transparent numbers. Or near the time, or??? Smile

Hi Minnesota and Pizzasgood.

Pwidgets displays the version number, and a kernel widget would be easy to make ...


Well I made such a widget for pwidgets here

Have fun Smile

Yes Its pretty good, I've done a few on adobe cs2 and gimp also some time back, and I think there is a compression for gif animated images, I forget the programs name right now, but animated Gif are handy, In the future a few things I'll be bringing to puppy will have them built in Smile Just a few ideas I have, when I get some spare time, anyways thats a great banner and should be used in the wiki Smile

Subject description: very good
 

Looks like flying puppy is about twice the size of the png file...so not all that bad... however the textured jpg I sent up was only 18K or one fifth....so bet some room for reduction...

NEAT.. though about an animated version... very good.

I took that as a subtle hint Wink , and had a go at reducing the size a bit.
This one was reduced to 32bit colour (the original was 256)
and used the "Floyd-Steinberg (reduced color bleeding)" Color dithering mode,
it is now down to 84k (but in my opinion, at the sake of image quality).

I don't know much about this compression business,
so if anyone can inform me of a better way to go about it, it really would be appreciated.

P.S As you know, keeping the size of images down is not really my cup of tea (or coffee)

P.P.S @ russoodle, just one of each mate Laughing and about 15 minutes.

Even the bigger image will work in Puppy Linux websites, but perhaps some language change will help, like

Puppy Linux

My Small

Super-Fast OS

Thanks, Catdude.

Thanks CatDude!

Going up on my site shortly!

Superpup is a phenomenon! Who cares if he isn't the default desktop in 4.3.... (wasn't that the topic here? Laughing Laughing ), he is everywhere else!

Cheers
