Re: the system tray....

Is there a way to make the system tray color change to match the theme color? Also...does the window managers support transparencies? Could the system tray icons have transparent backgrounds?

If there's any information regarding how to do this I am capable of doing it.

The graphs can, I don't know about the rest.

You'd need to talk to MU about the system tray. I too would prefer a transparent background, but I don't know if it's possible given the way it was developed. Only MU can tell that.

OTOH, most applications that using the Icewm taskbar probably CAN be made transparent. Certainly CPU status and Net status can. I even had Blinky running transparently, once, but I've no idea how I achieved it. I suggest you need to visit the Icewm website and see what they might be able to suggest.

Cheers

At the risk of monopolising the thread, and being told I'm off topic, I've created a background with three levels of darkness from a photo I took the other morning in my garden, an unique cluster of four miniature pink roses, 3 dark pink, one light pink.

Actually I'm delighted with how the photo came out. Very lucky to catch it just when I did.

I just wanted to share it with you, and I've posted it here cos I'm using the 2.15 Office as a platform...

There are three versions of this wallpaper if anyone would like to try it, up one level if you open the image in its own browser page/tab.

I've used the middle one, with a slight amount of foliage visible.

Feel free to use it if you would like. I have done some slight enhancing, so if anyone would like the clean original shot to work on themselves, I can give the url where it's stored.

Since we're showing off our puppies, I thought you might like a sneek peek at Puppy 2.15CE RC1 with the new blue velvet theme and ice icons. It also features transparent backgrounds for the CPU status and MU's traybuttons applet. Enjoy.



Or perhaps you'd prefer something a little more colorful:

And you said RC1 is next week? Today's Saturday, ummm.... perhaps only two days away???

Looks really smashing mate. Thanks for the sneak preview Smile
Is there any way you can slightly bolden the Ice-WM text for better contrast? It is very hard to see, as I commented in another thread - even the clock is illegible. Would be a shame to have to use a different theme with that wallpaper imho.

It's a bit like the Aurora Borealis (or Australis, perhaps?). Mind you the train of that name (Southern Aurora) sadly doesn't run any more.

Anything for a fellow Aussie! Razz

Look in your present version of Puppy 2.15CE and you will find the following file:

/root/.icewm/prefoverride - simply add ":bold" (without the inverted commas) to any of the appropriate options like clock, menu text, etc.

Hope that helps

I haven't found them either, Laurent. I know Pizzasgood knows, but he's wrapped up in exams at the moment and I'd rather not disturb him.

A number of the Rox icons exist in /usr/local/apps - right click Rox filer and choose Look inside. They're not all there though.

I hope that helps.

Actually, I'm on break now.

If you mean the icons in the tool-bar, most of them are part of the GTK theme. I actually don't know any more than that though. I think MU made a thread a year or so ago about it. There are a couple that I think are normal images in /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/images/


I think that's what you mean now, but at first I thought you meant normal icons, so I made a list of where stuff is. Shame to let it go to waste, so I might as well not delete it Rolling Eyes

The default mime-icons for ROX are at /usr/local/apps/ROX-Filer/ROX/MIME/. Some things (like the trash can) are a ROX-App, which means their icon is probably inside them (right-click, look-inside) named .DirIcon. Most ROX-Apps that come with Puppy are in /usr/local/apps/.

You can install icon themes in /root/.icons/ that override the default mime-icons.

When you right-click and choose "set icon" to change things, it puts an icon in /root/.config/rox.sourceforge.net/MIME-icons/. That is a very bad way to do it for a remaster, however (If the user changes icons, the default is lost. Changing the default icon instead allows them to revert if they want by choosing "clear" in the set-icon dialog).

Finally, there are a bunch of icons in /usr/share/midi-icons/, /usr/share/mini-icons/, and in assorted package-specific directories (usually in */share/<package-name>/)

Hi,

Yes i found all of them already, it seems we are at the same place.
The icons we are still looking for are the one for "change to ... directory" or "bookmark menus" etc... in the ROX toolbar.

I discovered a few distros where they had been changed like puppy XP pro 202 (from Gliezl if i remember well) and the new TEENpup also... If someone reads us i hope we could receive tips on this Smile

Best regards,
Laurent.

Wow very nice WhoDo! Thanks so much you're saving me a lot of work I'd otherwise planned on customizing myself. It's looking very polished!
