PostPosted: Sun 06 Jul 2008, 09:46    Post subject:  Icon Themes Exchange
Subject description: ... Puppy 4.x "Dingo" series and later...
 

Inspired by JQ8's excellent original theme for Japanese Puppy, I have added to the collection of available desktop icon themes for Dingo with Darkfire. Based around promix89's excellent GPL DarkShine icons, I have added the necessary icons to complete the Dingo set. I welcome others to make their own contributions here, too!

BTW, the background is called Firefall and is available from http://gnome-look.org. The icewm theme is Dark Ruby, a heavy modification of DarkT by Albi. Enjoy!

WhoDo,
Would you consider doing an icon set how-to with directions for creating and packaging an icon set for Dingo? Or is there already one and I haven't seen it?

Wow! I gotta say that is gorgeous. I had to stop and stare at that thing. Very nice work to the creators. I happen to believe that stock Dingo is one of the finest looking distros I've ever seen, with Viz a close second. This I think is a nice addition to the line up. Well Done!

I've been working on Crystal icon set for Puppy. Here is a preview of it. What do you think?



By the way, I have NOT created the icons completely. I've edited most of them but the original icons are from everaldo.com

Sorry to dig up an old thread,....but I just ran across your question (I was searching the forum to re-install these great icons!) and I saw you didn't receive your answer,.......Whodo uses his "EzPup" and that gives that great taskbar. (Super eyecandy).

Thank you nitehawk for picking this one up.

@artifactz - I am sorry but I missed your question when you originally posted. nitehawk is correct - the taskbar is available as a theme for the IceWM windows manager, and is part of the latest EZpup release. My apologies for not responding earlier.

Hey WhoDo,

Sorry for my ignorance but may you please teach me or direct me to how I can mimic the way your desktop looks, with the whole Darkfire look. I've downloaded and installed Icewm 1.3.2 from the package manager as well as the darkfire.pet file you posted. But i have no clue on what to do next.

[edit] Oh yea,I'm using Puppy Linux 4.00 if it makes any difference at all

Thank you,
Jinx

Ok, since you aren't using EZpup-4.0, the steps get a little more complicated. You can't just install EZpup-4.0 now because it will overwrite your later IceWM with an earlier version - 1.2.35, not 1.3.x

Step 1:
Having installed IceWM (any version after 1.2.27) you need to use Ctrl+Alt+Backspace to exit the Xserver so you can restart it with the new IceWM window manager

Step 2:
From the #prompt, type the following to start IceWM
Code:
xwin icewm-session


Step 3:
Download and install WhoDo-Dark-Ice.pet from Puppylinux.ca or one of our other great mirror sites. That will get you a selection of 3 Dark themes; Dark-Saphire, Dark-Ruby and Dark-Emerald.

Step 4:
From the menu, go to Menu>Settings>Themes and choose Dark-Ruby to set your taskbar and window theme. You will need to choose Menu>Window Manager>Restart Icewm to have the new theme show up.

Step 5:
Install the Darkfire.pet icon pack you downloaded by clicking on the file. When installed, from the menu, go to Menu>Desktop>Desktop Icon Switcher and choose Darkfire as your icon set, then follow the prompt to confirm.

Step 6:
Go to http://www.gnome-look.org and search for Firefall as the background if you wish, or find another background image of your choice to match the theme - Derek Prospero's site is a gem.

Step 7:
Having downloaded your preferred background to /usr/share/backgrounds, from the menu use Menu>Desktop>Puppy Background Changer to select your preferred background image.

Step 8:
Download and install Wow's Gdesklets (several dotpets required - use Puppy Google Search to find the thread) and search Google for appropriate Gdesklet applications for the clock, weather and calendar widgets.

Step 9:
Sit back and admire your new Puppy desktop

Of course if you had elected to simply install EZpup-4.0 first - the correct version for your Puppy - it would have been a whole lot less complicated than that, although EZpup doesn't include the Gdesklets. Watch zigbert's progress with Pwidgets to see how much easier that will be in Puppy 4.2, when it arrives.

Hope that helps.

Whodo, thanks for the JQ8 nice theme. I already had darkfire, so this new one is a refreshment.

Any other places to get more dingo icon themes?

regards,
Alvaro

Hi Alvaro,

I just posted JQ8 - it was created by jebaJQ8 for Japanese Puppy.

Dingo icon themes are so easy to put together, I would have thought more people would give it a go. I created both Darkfire and Gartoon sets in a single evening. You can get those from EZpup-4.0 if you need them.

There will be a new icon theme or two for Dingo-4.2, but that's a way off yet.
