Under echinus, a wide screen provides lots of room for multiple programs.

Cool pet downloaded for test (after pause and sieste, a nice nap). It should not become a duty, Puppy is 'for amusement only'.

Hello all.

Please find attached :
-- almost 50 themes for the echinus window manager
-- a "ChooseTheme" script. This script tries to harmonize the colors
between your chosen echinus theme and its ourico task bar (if you have
installed the optional ourico task bar)
-- a screen capture
-- some partial snapshots of various themes.

To use:
-- open a console in /root/.echinus and type < ./ChooseTheme.sh >
OR
-- open the dir. in ROX and click on < ChooseTheme.sh >

-- then, follow the prompts.

Some checking of your type is provided by the script. The script also tries
to provide suggestions if you have typed something not too far away
from what's listed. (There is no file name completion because I thought it
would be overkill for such a small utility. Just pay attention to what you
type, and everything should go ok.)

-- once you have chosen a valid theme, the screen blanks (in other
words, X recycles) while the echinus WM restarts with your new chosen
theme.

I believe I have tested this script thoroughly. However, would you be so
kind as to report any weird behavior at your end. TIA.

Finally, if you want to let your imagination run loose and write a couple of
echinus themes, please do! There is a template in the folder: figure it out
(it's not difficult) and you're ready to go. You could then contribute your
themes below.

Enjoy! BFN.

I have just edited the above post, to include a few samples of themes, and
the first post, to direct interested users to the theme choosing script above.

BFN.

Hello, echinus fans!

Here are fresh grinds of the theme choosing script and its wrapper:
-- it displays the last or current theme after the list, so you won't be
wondering which theme is the current one anymore;

-- the urxvt window has a proper title -- centered (hehe) Wink

-- the geometry is a bit more logical (IMO).

Note: if you are creating your own themes, try to keep their name at 12
chars. It's in the script, the commented < wc -L >line. Otherwise, the
listing on screen can be seriously out of sync.


and a couple of new themes:
-- I thought echinus needed a couple of nice grey themes, hence new
themes "Granite-01" and "Granite-02". I think these will fit nicely on top
of city scenes, but also "river on a rainy day" or "steep stony cliffs"-type
backgrounds. You be the judge!

I'm not providing screen captures. It's so simple, just run it and see!

TWYL.

Hi, gang.

Another grind of the theme selector is available here:
https://privatebin.net/?df7bbcc23bc7d9d3#Y23haDuZh2n0tLb2m+2y0fC0BIc031gk8W7SKlOk8O0=

Note -- This is the 1st time I'm using a "bin"-type depot and
also this "PrivateBin" service. Feedback will be greatly appreciated. If you,
the user, find this a satisfactory way to share code, I'll continue doing this.
TIA.
The entire package (edited script plus themes, etc.) is available from:
https://augras.eu/puppy_forum/index.php?topic=108.msg357#new
You can see a full size screen cap of the script in action there as well.

Please be warned that you have to register at augras' ElkArte/Puppy forum
before you access this material. I did not realize this in the past; I apologize
for whatever inconvenience it may have caused. (But maybe it's for the
best, given circumstances here in the recent past.)

~~~~~~~~~
In addition to straight choosing of the echinus theme, this version of the
script introduces choosing a theme alphabetically by sub-sets. This may
be less confusing for some users, since echinus now has 53 themes.

I fleshed out the type-checking sub-routine a bit while I was at it. If you
make a typo, the script still exits, but it now stops on the way out to tell
what the typo was.

Also, theme Aqua-01 has become Pond-01, because of the greenish tones. I
added its color reverse twin, Pond-02. Before you ask, these "Pond" themes
have nothing to do with Sudbury's famous yearly "Night On The Pond". Wink Wink

Ribbit! Smile
