True, and thanks for replying.

Where's the directory for installing them into Puppy, or isn't it necessary?

good question.
/usr/share/themes and /usr/share/icons and /root/.icons for cursor themes.
I use xfce 4.2 so I manually put files in appropriate places

Thanks, but sadly my old 17" monitor went up in smoke (or as good as) yesterday morning so I'm now viewing Puppy on a 15" SVGA monitor. I therefore need a WM that's economical on screen estate, like Fluxbox.

Best,

Thanks, but as money's a bit tight for me at the moment it will probably have to wait for a bit. I'll try and manage with what I've got now; maybe choose a more readable font or something.

This one's not a bad monitor and made by the same company as the 17", but the reduction in screen size does make a difference.

It would probably save me money in the long run though, that old monitor used to chuck out a fair amount of heat (and more than this one does).

Could try altering the X font resolution...gives nice bold text on smaller screens..
and xfce control panel has font size options too..ended up look good on a notebook mini screen

ps flat screens in cash converters and such are getting cheap too

Thanks for the advice (X font resolution? I've got some reading to do here by the looks of it).

Cheers,

CP .

Hey guys,
sorry for bumping up the old issue again, but there's a cairo patch available for XFCE 4.6.1. Can somebody please tell me how to patch it into xfce (or maybe give it a shot himself)? I wanted to throw it into gcc (just downloaded the whole src package), but I can't say that I'm very familiar with it. Sad

http://www.cooptel.qc.ca/~pggervais/xfce4-panel-4.6.1_cairo-patch.tar.gz

Any advice?

Evaluation after a bit of use and nosing around:
it seems all around VERY nice the menu is really close to the way it should be to... "make sense" i guess i could say, will need a tad work.

Main question is, other then always running pmount is there an easy way to mount or even find out about new devices with XFCE.

for instance jwm and icewm and such you could still see all the available drives on the desktop and when there was a new one it is shown. then of cause you click them they mount and open, however it dose not seem like there is a way to do that in xfce.

apart from that, this is top work. absolutely beautiful.

well this is from an older version but should mor or less apply.
Rox pinboard on which the mount icons work is probably still under the xfce4 desktop...try killing xfdesktop in htop.....
If that works and you are running xfce4 sessions then it will stay that way.
If not then a little fiddling is needed
