It would be part of the package build.  It's a configuration option.  We did have it on in VL6.

Step by step I am building the box to my liking. One things disturbs me in Openbox
and Fluxbox is that the icons on the toolbar of applications like abiword,
gnumeric and others are a dull black and white unlike in xfce4 where they have
some color which is more pleasant to see.

Is there a way to change this dull b&w look?

Just testing it now. I'm using JWM which is a good lightweight WM and one I've used a lot in Puppy where it's standard.

It seems to work very well. Just one thing though; how do you change the desktop background from the menu?

Apart from that, thanks for a good job of work devs :)

Wondering if this will work on an ancient Laptop I have. It was originally W98.

VL7 Light was tested on a Pentium 3, 500 MHz with 128 MB of RAM.
That said, if you want to run a modern web browser, doubling those numbers would be a good guide.
