As Moat said, XFCE. The XFWM theme (window manager) theme is Numix in case you were wondering.

I'm curious though as to what theme you're referring to because Numix looks nothing like the Windows XP Embedded theme:

The working window looks quite alike to me. BTW, are there other icons available for XFCE? Those in your pic looks a bit crappy to me (is it the default). Crying or Very sad

Nope it's not default, I picked those icons myself because I like them Laughing

The default icon theme is Faenza, I'm sure you've seen them before:



Anyway, installing icons in XFCE is a breeze. Just put them in /usr/share/icons and select the theme in Control Panel -> Appearances.

The icons in the menu are controlled like any Puppy, with Desktop Icon Switcher. (Also in Control Panel.)

Puppy Linux 5.7 is my choice. It is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM.

I'm finding that a lot of websites now won't load in the older browsers which come with some of the earlier Pups I like (such as Fire Hydrant, which is based on Puppy 3.01), and unfortunately that limits my choice of the Pups I can use on a daily basis. (This site, thankfully, loads in pretty much all of them).

The best I found for a basic 3.01 setup is Firefox 17ESR Akita .pet.



To run it I needed to install from the Pup 4 repos:

First 1. http://distro.ibiblio.org/puppylinux/pet_packages-4/gcc-4.2.2-1.pet
2. This Glib - http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/glib-2.22.2-p4.pet/download
3. This Glibc http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/glibc-2.10.1.pet/download
4. This Glibc locales http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/glibc_locales-2.10.1.pet/download
5. From Wary http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/gtkdialog4-246-w5.pet/download
6. This http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/libstdc%2B%2B6_4.4.5-8_i386.pet/download

7. This http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/Updates/Updates%20to%20install%20first/libjpeg-7-w5c.pet/download
8. This http://sourceforge.net/projects/anitaos/files/Anitaos/Immportant%20Updates%20for%20Anitaos/libjpeg-8-i486.pet/download
9. Also this
http://sourceforge.net/projects/puppylinux301updates/files/hicolor-icon-theme-0.12-noarch-2.pet/download
and http://sourceforge.net/projects/anitaos/files/Anitaos/Immportant%20Updates%20for%20Anitaos/libpng-1.2.34.pet/download

Sorry Links wouldn't play ball you'll need to manually copy and paste.



Addons: Still work like addblocker with work with 17ESR

3.01 unlike 4 series has dbus and dbus-glib already.

Yep it just wouldn't work anyway hope the Colonel finds this helpful. Makes 3.01 work well on my very troublesome Dell 500m which doesn't seem to like newer kernels.

Subject description: My favourite Puppy Distro
 

Slacko_Puppy_5.7

New to Linux and Puppy Linux.
Downloaded and played with 7 puppy's / puplet's.

My needs were to make a live dvd with no questions at
start up or shut down. I needed to be able to configure the internet connection, save browser bookmarks, and set up an email program.
The browser needed to be modern enough to work with
a few banking institutions. This live disk would be for
online banking and online purchases. The goal to make a safe environment for banking and purchases and not change the
normal boot into Windows. The dvd is to be used by my elderly
father-in-law who has limited computer skills. A couple of the banking
institutions have added a security layer that they email a second password or pin that is good for about 2 minutes. This made it necessary to configured an email application to receive emails.
Email also serves as a feedback when making online purchases,
most services send a receipt or conformation automatically within seconds. I set the email program to not delete the messages on the server that way, they will also be there when you reboots to windows
and receive your mail in that world. To make the live dvd safe from my father-in-law doing harm to his hard drive. I removed the mount
icon and all the drive icons.

Being new to puppy I had problems making a remastered dvd with the built in tool. On the Banksy Linux forum pages (one of the puplets I tried). I read about (ram2sfs). It works very well. Eventually I figuring which of the 18 yes/no questions asked in the built in remaster script I was incorrectly answering. However I find it faster, and more straight
forward to use ram2sfs, isomaster and pburn.

The dvd came out so nice that I have made a custom remaster for each of my computers, and now use puppy for MY personal online banking
and purchases !!

Good work, all you puppy pushers.
I settled on the fairly new (Slacko_Puppy_5.7) and believe
this version is a great linux for a windows user new to linux. Not a large shock factor from windows. Easy to setup, nice menus, great icons, easy to set&customize wallpapers. It is fast, good looking, stable, a pleasure to use. I know that it is not as small as some of the other distros, however it works well on all the machines that I needed it to run on. It has a little nicer curb appeal and feels polished more than most.
The boot time and system resources are so close to the smaller,
less polished versions. I feel it is worth the few megs space and load time.

Thanks! I'm using Firefox 17.0.4 in Lighthouse 3.01 now and it's working well. It works in Fire Hydrant Inferno too (which is based on Puppy 3.0.0).

The only file on your list which I wasn't able to install was libstdc-4.4.5-8, but it doesn't seem to have made any difference.
