Hello, all.

I've made available a fresh copy of lxp-icewm, at DataFileHost, today.
(The limelinx site does not exist anymore.) Please click on the new URL
in my first post above.

Unpack the archive where convenient for you, then click on all the pets
one after the other. That will install lxp-icewm on any Puppy -- at least
from Puppy 4.31 on.

To restart your Puppy with lxp-icewm,
* type Ctrl-Alt-Backspace; You're now in the initial black console;
* type
exec xwin lxp-icewm

That will open X with lxp-icewm as the window manager;
* you may have to fiddle with the position of the "stalonetray" tray -- in
/root/.stalontrayrc -- to adapt its position to your desktop. It's the line that
says: "geometry";
* I've included lots of regular icewm themes, in addition to the default
lxp-icewm ones. I made sure that these icewm themes all display
properly in lxp-icewm, To explore the themes, right click on an empty
space on the desktop, click Settings -> Themes. You can't miss it! Smile
* There is no menu button because you have buttons for all the sub-
menus on the task bar, starting at the third icon from the left. Hover
your cursor over them and you'll see the sub-menu labels.

Have fun! BFN
