updated Leopard .pet/.sfs.

Replaced the icontheme with "MacUltimate_Leopard" from:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=82844

The old set had scaling problems in some applications.

Sub_title: IceKDE theme

Yep! IceKDE overwrites or repoints the menu template at /etc/xdg/templates to one specific to IceKDE. You need to replace the modified template _root_.icewm_menu with the original. After this happened to me I simply removed IceKDE from my system, using PETget manager, and haven't had it back since. OTOH, others have loved it and stuck with it, so I guess it's a matter of personal choice.
Hope that helps.

was your install the current version? there isn't any "menu" file created in ./icewm.
i think the problem comes from prefoverride, i will remove these lines :
Code:
ShowProgramsMenu=0
ShowThemesMenu=1
ShowLogout=0
ShowHelp=0
ShowWindowList=0

this way users keep their own menu and uncomment the lines in prefoverride if they want a "KDE" menu (using the menu_icekde skeleton)

Just tried the new version of IceKDE and it's fine, so your fix worked!

Thanks.

Colonel Panic.

P.S. Dark Sapphire is a good theme as well, I particularly like the inset text in the titlebar which so far I haven't seen in any other theme.

Hi everybody, Hi MU
I'm using your slickness theme, slighty modified by me...the only thing I don't like is that in my icewm version (1.2.35) the menu bar has a separate line for each entry, as you see in this pic, whereas in older icewm versions (original Pizzapup for ex) there are not all those lines....I'm not able to find what controls this behaviour, I don't like all those lines...do you have an idea?

Yes Mark/MU... I was trying to get up enough courage to ask you the exact same question and make the same comment. Wink The theme itself is gorgeous!---I have a great deal of difficulty deciding between which to use! So I use this "SlicknesS-MU" for half the day and then "VistaBlack_V" for the remainder of the day. LOL!

I have a feeling though, since I can't find anything in the ".theme" file which is causing it to make these lines Mark that it must have something to do with the version of IceWM and how it works with the ImLib2 library files? I say this because my ver. in Mandriva is slightly older (by one number I believe?) and the menu doesn't have the lines.

In Puppy I have tried changing the parameter "Look=" over from "flat" to "gtk" and back and it made no difference with the menu---but "gtk" made a VERY NICE taskbar! Cool So for myself I've kept the option set at "Look=gtk" because of how nice my taskbar looks for now...

Amicalement/mfg,

Eyes-Only

Hi guys, I had another look at the them and found that the clock had a black space just before the pm. So I fixed it, Basically the spacer wasn't a gradient, it was a solid black rectangle. SO I made a gradient to match the rest of the clock. Nice and simple Smile
Next I found the fonts too small, so I increased the size of them.
When I removed the lines from the menu the default colour was ummmm not really that appealing to me, So I change the background on the menu also, Now its black.
Well hope you like the changes.

Many thanks ttuuxxx! Your version worked fine! I used the first one, since I don't use the digital clock....I took my modified default.theme and now it's as it should be!

Thanks Ttuuxxx! Very, very, much appreciated! Once I get rebooted back into my HDD install of Dingo 4.00 I'll put one or the other in (I've downloaded both for storage/examination). I'm looking forward to see exactly what it was that you changed in there to make it "different". As I'd posted: In my "Mandi" 2008.1 install of IceWM (using the full-install and not IceWM-Lite but I'm not sure which version it is) the menu is flat. It's in Puppy-Dingo's IceWM desktop where it is varigated like that. Odd...

Anyway, once again Ttuuxxx, thanks for your work and help in this matter as it is very much appreciated by myself, and others, as you already know. Wink

Amicalement,

Eyes-Only

@eyes-only:

could you post a screenshot of your icewm theme with the parameter "look=gtk"? just so people know what you mean by "VERY NICE"?

Take care Warren and thanks again for the theme!

Oh, I haven't finished yet, Jimmi! Razz Here is a "new" theme I think just might knock VistaBlack-V off its perch! Wink It's called "Dark-Saphire".

Enjoy!



That does look good. Is that XonClock at the top right. and if so, have you had any luck with getting skins for it? (I haven't so far).

no that are gdesklets.
They include 200 clockskins, you could also use them in xonclock or the Gtkbasic-analogclock.

(read further down for 200 clocks):

Thanks, but it seems you need Puppy 3 for that one and I use Pizzapup which is based on Puppy 2.14.

@Crabbypup: By enabling the "gtk=look" in the theme what it did was to pick up the GTK engine of my theme, so instead of a smooth taskbar all the way across the screen? I had a "button effect" where Ttuuxxx had placed each one of the QuickLaunch icons. That's what I thought was "NICE". Wink

Easier for me to explain than to figure out how these hosting sites work for photos. Sorry mate but oft-times even the simplest items confound the hell out of me. Embarassed

I hope you'll understand and forgive me?

Amicalement,
