Pa Penguin's Packages: Themes, Schemes, & Fonts
I'm not one to go hog-wild with different fonts, but I do like to have a few good ones to select from. Here they are, with no weird ones (in my humble opinion) mixed in. If you're running Puppy Linux and you want still more fonts, just find and download any TrueType (.ttf) font and put it in /root/.fonts; then it should show up wherever you need a font.

I've already shown you my "LightHeart" IceWM themes here--but my own themes aren't the only ones I like. Here are screenshots of some others, all included in the Pa Penguin's Favorite IceWM Themes package. (If you look closely at the selected line in the "GTK+ 2.0 Change Theme" box, you can see the name of the GTK+ theme that's displayed along with the IceWM titlebars and taskbar in each screenshot.) If you like these themes and want them on your computer too, here are download links:

Let geeks and freaks dwell on invidious comparisons between GTK+ and Tk. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to establish a tolerable state of visual harmony among my desktop applications, and to have done with all matters of interest to none but the cognoscenti of computing. (As for the cognoscenti of Jane Austen's novels, let them shriek, if they will, at this appalling parody of a paragraph in Mansfield Park. For non-cognoscenti, here's the original: "Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery. I quit such odious subjects as soon as I can, impatient to restore everybody, not greatly in fault themselves, to tolerable comfort, and to have done with all the rest.")
If you want visual harmony too, and you're running Puppy Linux, just install the Clearlooks GTK+ theme engine (approx. 50 KB) and my Clearlooks Colorschemes package. Then, if you also install one or more of my Tcl/Tk programs, you can use the Chtheme GTK Theme Chooser (under the Desktop menu) to select GTK+ themes, and use WISH Color Picker Plus (by way of a Display or Color Display button or menu item in the program window) to select like-looking Tk themes.
You should get results like the ones shown below. Only the cognoscenti, I dare say, could distinguish GTK+ from Tk readily--if at all--in these screenshots. In case you're not among the cognoscenti, WISH Command Center used GTK+ by way of Gnocl, and a previous version of WISH File Rusher (shown here) used Tk. (I've now replaced WISH Command Center with WISH Command Console, and I've rewritten WISH File Rusher using GTK+, but the illustration of Tk and GTK+ I got with the former versions was at least as good as anything I could get with any other programs, so I'm still showing it here.)
