the original theme that came with jwm in puppy 1.0.5 is quite shabby. so i modified it to look much more like xp.

download the jwm-puppy-xp.pup. install it. it will overwrite the previous files for the jwm xp theme. click on ok when it ask to overwrite files.

use the jwm theme switcher to select jwm-puppy-xp theme

Thanks very much for that.

I think the 1.0.6 live-cd will have at least 3 themes built-in,
the controversial peach theme, the original grey, and the xp theme
that you have sent in.

Bombayrockers, how did you make a "drop shadow effect" on your desktop fonts? They are wonderful! Very Happy

bombayroclers, thanks for the jwm-puppy-xp.pup.

I like the background, but I found it somewhat dark and unfocused so I took the liberty of sharpening it a little and adjusting the image's gamma value to lighten it up a bit. I'm attaching the modified image as litrix4.jpg. Use whichever image you like best Wink

BTW, is the original high resolution image available?

EDIT: Image deleted as I managed to make an improved but lean (only 50KB at 1024x768 Wink ) image from Barry's original. The image (litrix_1024x768.jpg) is further down in the thread.

The original litrix.jpg was about 160K, I knocked it down to under 40K,
so it is a bit blurred.

Original attached.

Thanks, Barry!

It will be interesting to see if I can reduce and optimize the original to around 40-50K while keeping the quality high Wink

EDIT: I have now modified the original - I think this image is a good compromise between size & quality.

To use as wallpaper, right-click on image and choose 'Save Image As...' to download it. Then copy image to /root/.jwm/themes/. Open Start -> Control Panel -> Desktop background image and you can choose the new image from the list.

Enjoy Very Happy

This is one of the results of over compression. It is possible that some people do not get this blockiness (it seems different on some monitors, screens resolutions, graphic chips or some such variable) The way to overcome might be to make the sky one shade but allow the clouds. I remember reporting blockiness in images to someone providing a daily pic
- they said there was no blockiness. On a different computer (forget what made the difference) the blockiness was not apparant.

On my screen it is very blocky Confused

That I think may be the difference - I am using TFT screen but if I used a CRT the image might blend more . . .

I wanted to get the file size down to under 50KB so this is the result. I think the problem lies in the large number of subtle color changes in the sky which produce blocking when compressed too hard.

I'll be happy to give it another shot, but it will probably mean a somewhat larger file. What limit do you want to put on the file size?

I don't suppose there's any actual rule that they should be a certain max
size. Under 50K is good to aim for.
