QU: themes, PETs

October 21, 2014 — BarryK
I have decided on a green theme for QU.

I found a desktop icon set named "green glow" from the Puppy4 days. If anyone knows who created that, let me know.
It needed some changes of icons, some dropped, some added, and I created a new PET.

I looked through zigbert's PETs to see what needed updating.

Quirky Tahr has Aqualung, not Pmusic, but I will bring back Pmusic for QU, except have to use the old version 3.3.0, as still using gtkdialog 0.8.3.

Same problem with Pburn, have to stay with 3.7.18, as QU is using the cdrkit DEB package.

However, I have upgraded Pfilesearch to 1.35, Pschedule to 1.1.5 and Ptiming to 1.0.3-1.

Tempestuous used to maintain 915resolution, and I noticed that my PET is not his latest. Have upgraded to "patch20120521".

Note, 915resolution is for widescreen (non-VESA-standard) screens with Intel video chip, however, is not actually needed with the Xorg Intel driver. It is however needed for framebuffer, Xorg vesa, or kdrive X drivers.

I have downloaded the latest PETs from rcrsn51, will update my PET database tomorrow.
