Nice

It is more familiar in fvwm95 and I bet that is still very reliable compared to JWM - I always switched to fvwm95 for about 3 or 4 versions of Puppy after JWM became the default . . .

Nice to see my simple 2 line encryption of single files in there 'blowfish 007'

Also included a nice 'world from space' desktop image to choose.

People used to XP might feel more comfortable with the fvwm95 icons and XPuppy Professional familiarity

The rest is all Puppy 2.02 . . .

I think I would use IceVista2 theme, also very reliable, on top of Puppy Gold with Firefox from pupget but that is me.

However I would lose the familair XP icons that Gliezl has collected and included.

The Gxine in this version is more reliable - so if that is important, this is a great ISO download.

Gliezl also created a 1.09CE and 2.02 distro booting from one boot up.

Good to see how people are sharing and uploading, many thanks Wink

gliezl,

you mention that your iso has the hcf modem package. is this a speed limited version(14.4 kbps) or 56k, and if the latter, how did you get it to work with 2.02 kernel.

regards

gliezl,

This looks wayyyyyyy too much like Windoze. You should be getting a letter from Microsoft's attorneys soon - just ask Lindows - I mean Linspire! Laughing

Well done!

Hello gliezl !

The Screenshot looks realy awesome.

Can you say please if XPuppy Pro use as default the Double Click for starting application on the Desktop.
I need this information for future puppy linux recomandments to my friends.
Double Click is more easy for new User then Single Click.
It looks like i will recommend XPuppy Pro more than other Puppy Versions for totally linux newbees from now.

One Question at last.
Do you have interest to write a step by step instruction how to build XPuppy Pro from scratch.
Such a howto will bring XPuppy Pro more developers and testers how help improve and test this awsome looking Pup.

Thanks in advance for your answers.
Greetings ARAN.

You are kidding, isn't it?

I've worked with new users for many years and the single most anoying thing for them is learning the double click, specially the older new users.

They always double click either too fast or two slow or drag the mouse between clicks.

Then there is the fact that even when it's configured with double clicking there are operations that require a single click and they endup double clicking (buttons, menus, browsing, etc).

After I show them how to configure windows to use single click they never go back. The interface becomes consistent. One click for whatever they want to do.

Ups, Gliezl, sorry for hijacking your thread. If someone want's to continue this conversation, let's open another thread.

gliezl
Altough even my windows does not look like windows, I appreciate that many people really feel comfortable with a 'known' appearence.

In any case, it seems that you are having fun customizing Puppy and that is the most important part of this all. Being your goal to have a look-alike desktop, you are very close to achieving that.

man i missed out on being the first to post. DARN! o well i have been playing around with it for a few days now and it seems to be pretty nice although when you restart the fwm95 settings it doesnt reload the xp theme, hmm... i even reset the theme to xp and restarted jwm and it reset it to the puppy look (with a few things still the same) but overall nice really nice!

That looks absolutely superb!
But I have some questions for anybody who can answer them:
What is 007 blowfish?
What exactly have you done to make it like windows? - have you just added FVWM95 and changed the icons and root menu structure, or do you have JWM looking like Windows also?
Do you think we could make a dotpup or something that would do this to any version of Puppy?
Could we alternatively have the icons and .jwmrc/fvwm95 files separately anyway so people can modify their own puppies?

You are a legend, and did you ever reveal how you do those isos with two distros combined?

gliezl what a beautiful distro you have created from Puppy Smile

I hope it is okay, I will be messaging you maybe today and asking some questions - is that okay? You may have the answers to several things I have been asking.


And regarding single or double-click mice; I personally prefer single click and agree that brand new users are thoroughly confused with this Microsoft aberration (abomination?), The only caveat I put on that is some laptops are too touchy to use single click, even when you've bust your gut to configure them Smile
