New theme for upcoming EasyOS 1.0

January 19, 2019 — BarryK

EasyOS version 1.0 is nearly here, and I reckon it should have a new theme. I want to use the LaGaDesk BlueNight desktop icons, for which we have a PET. Well, there are some variations of them around.

I don't know who created the original PET, but he/she obtained the icons from a set created by LaGaDesk at After that, Puppy Forum members 'starhawk' and 'OscarTalks' improved some of them and brought out a new PET. That is the PET that I have been using.

However, EasyOS needs a couple more icons that are not in the PET, so I went looking for the original set created by LaGaDesk. Alas, it is no more. So, I posted a request to the Puppy Forum. And oh joy, 'perdido' found it:

I have now created a new PET, named "lagabluenight2", here:

In deciding on a "new" theme, I looked back at old pup releases. Precise Puppy 5.6 has a very nice deep-blue theme, and uses the LaGaDesk BlueNight icons. Using the same JWM and GTK themes, and have found a new wallpaper. It looks good.
