Sub_title: They Work!
 

I have been tryin out next & really really like it a lot Smile

Great Job Iguleder!!! Smile

I went lookin for themes & found a site with many here is a link.

http://www.jessanderson.org/wmthemes/

I installed it simply by unpacking the tar.gz through xterm then moved the created folder to ~/GNUstep/Library/WindowMaker/Themes & it showed up in the appearance menu. I switched to it & it loaded up Smile fonts need adjusting through editing the style shellscript located in the themes folder.

again thanks Iguleder if you had not made this next pup version i would not have learned many things over the last few days Smile

I would post a screenshot of the theme i installed but not sure how to take one just yet as soon as i do ill post it Smile

I'll make a big bunch of font packages, don't worry. I just want to get alpha 2 ready first.

It has many changes, and the biggest difference is the fact the packages are also packaged automatically now. Previously, they were built automatically but had to be packaged manually - now I can rebuild the whole repository in 15 minutes.

I'll automate font packages too and maybe even add some fonts to the ISO - its size should drop to somewhere in the 65 to 70 MB range, so spending 1-3 MB on fonts is justified, Smile

You used Aurora to run Peacekeeper?

WDYT of Aurora?

I still long for a really small and quick browser.

Midori, reporting as Safari, has been an excellent performer in Fluppy.

Dillo seems to have been abandoned and forgotten.

How does it look and perform compared to the others?

Did you create a PET or are you running it from a SFS?

I compiled them both in Next 5, I tried to make a pet but the dir2pet script didn't work right.

They both work well.

Would the newest Dillo (3) be worth the wait?

Is making a SFS, that will work in Next 5, difficult for the detail-challenged?

I always seem to miss a step or stumble on a dependency or miss a symlink or something ... and I have years of experience in all of that! Embarassed

So, rather than waste everyone's time trying to walk me through such things I just ask and wait for someone more competent to make them available! Laughing

pacer106: I made font packages for these:
Quote:
dejavu-fonts-ttf
freefont-ttf
ubuntu-font-family
font-bh-ttf
liberation-fonts-ttf
LinLibertine


I think it's more than enough, it's pretty much all the widely used free fonts Smile

The DejaVu fonts package is what you need to get smooth fonts when using themes, since many themes use other Vera variants that don't ship built-in.

EDIT: you can get them here ... as always.

EDIT: I wrote a better parser, which is more accurate but doesn't feel slower, it's here. This time it has a more sophisticated category guessing mechanism that solves a problem I had in a testing build of alpha 2 - Pburn was missing from the menu.

Just to highlight my way of operating.
I have gathered fonts in a fonts directory outside the save file and symlink it to /usr/share/fonts/default and these fonts are available for every puppy I use/test.

Building alpha 2, going to upload it once the ISO is ready.

The menu generator had one bug that prevented some menu entries from appearing in the menu, now it's fixed and everything works just fine.

I booted a testing build and installed Seamonkey - it's so goddamn fast! I like it a lot.

I'm sure alpha 2 will be more complete than alpha 1 ... by far. Very Happy
