Thanks to Ian's help, I got puppy running on my hunk of junk laptop.

It's an old Toshiba satellite Pro 440CDX.

133mhz pentium
80mb ram

And it runs great!

Barry,

If you put it to a vote, I will vote to have this image as the default background replacing the blue sky one.

Of course, if this file is provided under an open license.

Yes, really nice. Let's see if trentster can find its origin...

This is where I found it, but the largest image is only 1024 x 768! It could be made bigger, if you add more white space. But don't stretch it. That would look like crap.

1024x768 is too big for me. I use pretty coarse resolution because I like the bigger text it gives me, and a 1024x768 background image would be way too big. Could it be made so I can easily resize it (with mtPaint perhaps) and put it anywhere I want in the background?

you can easily do it by cropping the image and pasting it anywhere in a white background the size of your desktop, then using that image as your desktop

I use the live CD, with a pup001 file on the hard drive. Would pasting an image be permanent? How do I get rid of the existing desktop background image, so I have only a plain white background (leaving the icons and toolbar, etc.?)

And what I meant was:

If you want to 'put that image anywhere in the desktop' you can edit the image using mtPaint.
1. Crop the doggy image
2. Resize the image to whatever size you want
3. Create another image the size of your desktop.
4. Paste the cropped doggy image
5. Save this new file
6. From the menu 'Control panel -> Change desktop image'
7. Select the newly created file.

That's it. you can put the doggy image as your background wherever you want on your desktop.

Thanks rarsa. I never noticed the 'Control panel -> Change desktop image' button till you mentioned it! That's what I was asking for, without realizing it.

I agree that the image above is slick and polished, but so is Windows (on the outside!) Personally, I feel a strong loyalty to our mascot, the one and only Puppy! I definitely feel the image of the real Puppy refects the spirit of this distro.



When I saw Puppy holding that flower and read the story of his disappearance, my heart melted.

VIVA LA PUPPY!

...I forgot to login....I posted above message as guest.

Well, I guess the goal is to market it to the biggest group of people, and that puppy with the big eyes is cute. I saw the preview in wiki, and it looked good... But if you could put the picture of the real Puppy as an alternate, that would be cool....like the spirit of Puppy behind the scenes.....

Yeah, I know I'm a freak, but the reason I like this distro is because of the heart, not just the technical stuff.
