I just downloaded Litestep, have used it in the past but didn't have much luck with it. I am making a go at it again, and it seems to be working well. However, I want to make my own theme. How do I go about doing this? I have looked all over and have seen plenty of stuff on the file structure, and the basic files needed. However is there anyone that can tell me how to do stuff with the graphics and what not. I found a cool theme here:
See how the graphics are all customized with smooth curved surfaces rather than the bland straight rectangular stuff. How do you do that?
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Sounds like you just need to take some PhotoShop tutorials.
Actually I am really good at photoshop. I meant, do I simply go in to an already created theme and edit the images supplied? I have no idea what images to create and in what order, and how to tell the program where I want them displayed etc. No where have I seen anything delve into this. Do you understand what I am saying?
Do some boudhism meditation :)
your question is strange. i have read it several times... but i still dont understand your problem completely!!
I am probably wording it rather strange. The "default theme" I have that came with my build of Litestep has just a plain bar across the bottom of the screen with a plain taskbar and a plain Winamp Control System, and a plain etc..... I have seen lots of themes that change the look of the taskbar, system tray, winamp controls, quick launch bar, etc. I have seen things ranging from simple rectangular taskbars like the default one I have, to things like the Turtle theme I originally linked in this post. My question is how do I get the shell to display the images I create, and how do I tell it where my buttons should be, where on the image my task bar should be, etc...
I think that might be better worded. Let me know if I am still talking in gibberish.
every module comes with a manual that explains you that stuff.
Not exactly, I guess I will just sit down for a day and screw with it. That is how I learn everything, just hoping I didn't have to waste more time then I needed. One more question though, what is the maximum X,Y coordinate? I see the minimum is 0,0 so the screen is the first quadrant of a graph but what is the max value of x and y? The resolution? I know it is probably a dumb question and I should already know this but bare with.
Nevermind. I figured it all out. Guess I got ahead of myself and asked lame questions before messing with it. Thanks for the replies.
