Okay, so I avoided asking about installing themes, and I caught myself asking about skinning... But judging from the general atmosphere of this community, I have a feeling I'm going to take a severe thrashing sooner or later. Might as well get it over with :)
I'm having lots of general problems but one specific - the "Blankette" theme taskbar loads wrong. All the icons seem to be on top of one another. I had a feeling that on installation I might have instructed it to use an older module version so I deleted the folder and reinstalled it. I was not asked to specify/download any modules and the problem persisted.
If anyone knows this theme I would be very pleased if someone could tell me how to change the background colour... I know about the left-click menu but the options don't make sense to me not do they change anything for me ("Active caption"?)
interesting problem...never actually seen a systray, or taskbar, module do that. Can you provide a link to the theme and a full-size screenshot of what you have?
Also...if you want to ask about window skinning check out the sticky thread on it.
Dev two modlues loaded there?
Maybe a misconfig?...
two modules wouldn't stack the icons like that. and I don't know of a config that would allow, lets say the systray, to put one icon on top of another. it would rather show them out of view than stack them.
The theme can be found at:
The theme is very simply using each corner as a hotspot, nothing else: Top-left is sytray, bottom-left is taskbar, bottom-right is popup menu and top-right is time/winamp. All other parts worked as they were supposed to.
Unfortunately I can't provide any screen shots right now since, as problems compounded and work needed doing, I returned to a clean windows installation.
well, it worked fine for me. after crashing Outlook twice... :/ I don't know how, but the .lsz kept failing, then outlook crashed. twice in a row. very odd... but after manually installing the theme, it worked fine for me.
Hmm are you running explorer on top of litestep? That theme works perfectly for me.
yeah...I was kinda wondering about the taskbar thats behind myself since its not part of the theme.
Yikes maybe I should prowl the forums more :P
Blankette was a theme I made after only theming for a month or so, so it's probably garbage.
I had a 2nd version which blew my mind but I reformatted without thinking to backup my litestep themes (I always rush reformats and forget things).
I've never seen this particular problem though, and I have no idea what's happening to your icons there...
I could be wrong but the taskbar in this theme is hooked into xLabel, right? Maybe my !resize bangs got all buggered somehow? I could see maybe if the taskbar stayed 1-tile high, but the label holding it resized properly? That seems to be maybe what's happening here.
Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
