Thanks for the info Warren as it's very much appreciated! Smile

Regarding Wbar: On that I definitely have to agree with you as to it being a true "gem of gems"! I've tried several of these "iBar/iDock" look-a-likes (AWN and SimDock being two that come to mind right off) but nothing can compare to this Wbar. It's in a league and class by itself being so lite on resources, easy to configure with a text file, etc. Seems to run on just about everything and every desktop (even some the coder said it shouldn't).

I've too been enjoying that HotPup as well. That ranks right up there high in my book. I've always loved auto-mount and wished Puppy would do such (mainly because of how I have various caches, email, and backups all in one partition), and Hotpup permits me so many various options that I can auto-mount and forget it, or set various other settings and features. It's amazing!

Those have to be two of the best of the many great programmes I've discovered here over the past two years. I love it!

Take care Warren and thanks again for the theme!

Amicalement,

Eyes-Only/jimmi

I'm using Icewm 1.2.34 but any of the later Icewm versions should work - 1.2.3x series. The cutdown Icewm that ttuuxxx created, or anything from EZpup 2.xx or 3.xx should be fine.

That's mrxvt and it is available in Caneri or MU's repository lists.

If you want the other stuff, the clock, the weather app and the calendar are Gdesklets packaged in dotpet by Wow (I think). Available from the forum.

The floating launch bar is Dougals' Wbar, also available from the forum.

Of course that's Dougal's Hotpup in the bottom left corner, too.

Background is from InterfaceLift web site. Don't remember what it's called.

Of course. I do. Wink

Ah Warren! Just what can I say here? Yet another eye-popper! It's brilliant mate! But hmm... "Take the places of VistaBlack V"? Personally, for me? That would be stretching it a bit. Razz

For me, my all-time favourite would be "VistaBlack V" followed in dead-heat by the "Smooth Sapphire" when ALL the parts are together (meaning the wallpaper, etc.), then followed a very close third by "Breaker51" which I picked up God only knows where. A close 4th is "IceBuntu"---when used with the Human icons and my Ubuntu wallpapers as I've managed to make IceWM look like Gnome very closely with that. Twisted Evil

By and large though I've been mainly sticking with Mint and another Linux I threw together myself based upon an .rpm system with a kernel by Texstar and in both these distros I've been doing my own desktops with bits n' pieces in their respective repos. Keeps me and my 4 wheeler out of the bars at night. Wink LOL!

Thanks again for yet another truly beautiful work of art Warren! That's two I've got sitting here now in backup which means later I'll have to reboot and install them, eh? Wink

Keep up the fabulous work Warren! For people like me who have to sit in front of a computer for 16 hours 7 days a week you make things truly exciting---and you of all people know that I mean that mate!

Amicalement,

jimmi

I have modified dvw86's original Abby theme to look a bit like the latest Macintosh style. If you want the background to go with it, let me know and I'll upload it here. Positioning the taskbar is done with IceWM Config and of course you'll need Dougal's Wbar for the launcher.



Edit: Now includes the Leopard wallpaper and Gekos-Leopard Gtk theme.

And for those who prefer the look of a simpler time, when clarity was king and color was used sparingly for effect ...

Introducing MacRetro by WhoDo.

Dotpet includes MacRetro IceWM theme, gekos_leopard Gtk-theme and Macish wallpaper (must be tiled).

Enjoy!

And the Theme Master has struck once again! All I can do is look at these and say, "WHOA!" WhoDo and stare Shocked Words truly do fail me when it comes to trying to review your themes.

I do know that theming for IceWM has sat basically stagnant for years (if you look at places like FreshMeat), so to see someone of your calibre putting out fresh themes and remakes at the rate you do... well... I can imagine that it's breathing new life and interest across the board back into the viability of IceWM as a serious desktop window manager. I've noticed over the past 6 to 8 months how more people outside of Puppydom have come to recognise its quality now and how it's even being included in such serious distros as Mandriva, Debian, and others on their install disks as an alternative to KDE/Gnome.

Thank you so much for sharing my friend! Oh yeah, and if I may? Personally I think the wallpaper should be included in Abby-Mac.pet for those who don't have it and would like it. If I remember correctly running it through mtPaint and saving it as a .jpg at 85% quality (which is the level I save most of my .jpgs) really knocked down the kilobytes on that file without noticeable degredation, but I could be wrong and thinking of another you'd sent me in the past.

Thanks again Warren!

Amicalement,

Oh, all right... Razz I've updated the dotpet in the original post to include the Leopard wallpaper and Gekos-Leopard Gtk theme, but only because YOU asked for it, jimmi! Laughing

it seems there is a package-error:
/usr/share/themes/Gekos_Leopard/

The pics there must go in the subfolder /gtk-2.0.

Sub_title: Tease, tease, tease away! :-P
 

Thanks for mentioning that Mark---though I'm sure we've both made Warren's day with all these .pet redo's, eh? LOL! (NOT!) Wink

Nice that we can all be such wonderful friends here though and get away with a little razzing n' teasing from time to time, isn't it? Humour! It makes Life so much more enjoyable by far! Laughing

Actually Warren, you didn't have to include the wallpaper for MOI. As you may recall I already have that magnificent piece of work thanks to you! (Oh!---and far from scare the kiddos, they adored it! But they're the type who'd pet a bear if I said it was safe. LOL!) Granted, I don't have the exact one because of the logo on this one but I like mine well enough as it came directly from a mate of mine. Smile

By the way Warren: I've brought over into my 3.0.1 from Mint and then the "Linux I threw together" both the "Darklooks" and "Aurora-Midnight" GTK2 themes & widgets, etc., and have been having a lot of fun with those! A lot of these dark themes you've made for IceWM recently, such as the "Dark Sapphire", go wonderfully with "Darklooks" and your "VistaBlackV" goes excellent with "Aurora-Midnight" as the black and blue accents are nearly a perfect match. Stunning! Shocked

Keep up the fabulous work mate!

Amicalement,

Thanks, Mark. Corrected and uploaded to original post. Also corrected location of background in MacRetro.pet and reloaded.

Cheers

IceKDE-1.7.1

So, here's the theme i created, designed to look like KDE 3.5 - at least that's what the taskbar, clock, start button, Rox icons, taskbar icons, window decorations and other minor items are here for.

Notes:
* this theme uses the DejaVuSans font. Be sure it's installed on your system
* the icon theme that goes with the theme (594 kb) is in /root/.icons/IceKDEicons
