Yes you don't need to place a tar in an zip, that's placing an archive in an archive, there's no need for it... Pick one or the other, put things in a zip, or place them in a tar, but not both.

So in the future all you have to do is place what you want in a folder and then run those two commands to create a tar.gz that I showed you.

OpenBox is all I run as my standalone DE, I don't run or use anything else.

Have at look at, the first screenshot top left from Slackware 14.0 that's mine;

Here's a new screenshot, I've made some changes to Conky;

Of course on some Distros more geared towards new users they'll package the themes into a .deb .rpm package to install, but the correct OpenBox method is to simply unpack the theme out of a tar someone downloads online like yours, and then you use Obconf to install the theme.

Or for people that know, all you have to do is copy the theme directory to your HOME ~/.themes directory.

The Thinking on Imagine FlatCarbon isn't really so correct. What color do you think is associated with Carbon?

The Menu should have a Grey/Black color not white and then for the Imagine FlatSuperwhite you give it a black Menu when the name of the theme is white, this should have a white menu.

These two you have backwards, should change them. :)

Oh I didn't even open it before commenting.

You placed a tar in a zip...

You don't do that, just place everything in the tar next time... ;)

Well I must say this is a first, a tar zipped up hehe...

A Zip is an Archive Format so is a Tar, you use one or the other, you don't combine both...

Linux/Unix systems typically use tar formats over Zip.

If you're going to make a Tar Gunzip run the commands like this;

The below command is -c and two v v not a w

tar -cvvf folder.tar folder
gzip folder.tar

Now you have created folder.tar.gz

Really nice themes, great to see people are still working to make themes for OpenBox!

But I don't run a RPM or Debian based distro and for others that don't too, you should have the themes in a Tar file.

Please make a tar file.

Your work is really nice but it would really be great if you could please just make them unbranded without any names attached to it...

Not everyone that uses E is going to use the distro that you are always branding the themes to.

I use Arch and Slackware, Arch is just a testing box, Slackware is the distro I use...

In 11 years of Linux I don't need to have wallpapers with my distro name on it and I'm sure many people don't really care to either. It's just a novelty that wears off after time and then you end up using other wallpapers, etc...

So I truly would appreciate it for the future, can you please just make all your themes not branded?

I really don't think anyoe is going to care and in fact it's going to make it more flexible for people to use....

So what do you say? PLEASE! :)

Forgot to mention, it's not just wallpapers that are the problems but the logos used in various places in a theme also, which means quite a bit of theme hacking, not so easy so the inexperienced...

It's great to see a distro like Bodhi help to bring E out of the dark, but let's still remember everyone that this is, not specific to any distro...

And the problem still is, that E isn't popular so trying to find new themes that are now, not being made distro specfic like this isn't easy.

Sure you can load your own wallpaper over this, but let's be honest, sometimes trying to find a color that matches a particular theme is not always so easy.

So please consider those of us that don't use the distro you are making a theme for and please just make a nice generic cool looking E wallpaper that everyone can enjoy.

Don't get me wrong this is really great to see and you did nice work, it's just such a shame to limit to only Bodhi as many newer users might feel that aren't comfortable hacking themes or having hard time trying to get a wallpaper to match, but some of the themes I have hacked open have the wallpapers in them without the logos, as a generic alternative to use...


PLEASE let's see generic E themes for the betterment of E for everyone! :)

I'm now trying out the icons in E17 and when I log out of E into the console I get this message;

Does AwOken have a dependency on other themes?

These are all the icons I use and all of them change the video icon and work.






THANKS - Feb 07 2011
I am using your script, but from what I can see for now the video-x-generic.png is not getting changed if that's the name of the one you are changing for the Video icon.

So the .AwOkenrc is the only thing being created? I guess what I can see is your script is just changing shortcuts, so at one time you are pointing to certain icons to have them load by these newly created shortcuts and when you pick a new look, then new shortcuts are made to load this new look, yes?

In PCManFM-Mod file manager I don't have any icons that can change the folders with the images. Do you know what Nautilus does to make this happen?

I know how to change the look of icons if Tint2 doesn't show them properly, I just want to have the icons look correct in PCManFM-Mod file manager is all. So far the only icon I see not working correct is for the video and the folders, which as you mentioned is for the file manager, the way Nautilus works...

Firefox and Thunderbird work ok, that was my mistake before....

I just copied by hand the wicd icons and backed up the original in /usr/share/pixmaps and when I loaded wicd the wicd-gui.png icon was not getting loaded it's still showing the original wicd-gui.svg.

Here's a screen shot you can see the original still being loaded;

By the way the permissions on the wicd-gui.png and wicd.png were set to executable files so I changed them to 644.

THANKS - Feb 05 2011
I just noticed too that my folders in PCManFM-Mod file manager are just plain, I don't get any of the images on the folders.

Here's a screen shot of my $Home in PCManFM-Mod file manager showing the 'Downloads' and 'Pictures' with no images on them.

Is there a way using the PCManFM-Mod file manager to get folders to use the images on them for any of these folders you made, like the email, video, etc...?

THANKS - Feb 05 2011
Here is a screen shot of Firefox;

Here is a screen shot of PCManFM-Mod File Manger;

The buttons are all grey, they should be different colors?

Here's a screen shot showing the video icon;

Is the install script just creating a
.AwOkenrc file, I would like to know how we clean out, uninstall what has been done if anything has been created in the $HOME directory.

I looked through my $HOME and all I could see that was changed was the .AwOkenrc file created, but if anything else is added or changed I'd like to be able to know how to remove it...

THANKS - Feb 05 2011
Well I was looking at it trying to figure out the reason for it and I couldn't see any differences in a person placing the icons in ~/.icons and using .gtkrc-2.0 for a Window Manager or having them placed in /usr/share/icons for Desktops...

I used the script and it didn't do anything for me different then if I manually installed the icons and used the .gtkrc-2.0 in OpenBox

So I was at a loss to understand the script since it doesn't seem to be needed.

Also video-x-generic.png icon isn't working in OpenBox so I had to replace the icon in /usr/share/icons/gnome/48x48/mimetypes to make it work...

Also in Firefox, are all the buttons suppose to be grey, or should the Stop button be a different color, or any other ones be a different color too?

Also in a File Manager are all the buttons grey too? Because I had one time the New Tab button turn green for PCManFM-MOD but then it changed to grey.


P.S. I posted here for others to read and comment on as well... - Feb 05 2011
Sorry forgot to ask can you please explain what the Script is going to create when you run it?

All I see is that it's placing the icons in the path of ~./icons or /usr/share and then creating a .AwOkenrc file...

Is this all?

Does AwOken need to be placed in
~./icons and /usr/share/icons?

THANKS - Feb 04 2011
Hi alecive,

Please explain why icons need a script to be installed properly? Icons should only need to be places in the $HOME path of ~/.icons and then for Gnome users in their
appearance preferences they load the icons and the same idea for other desktops environments, using the preferences. For Window Managers you only need to also place them in ~/.icons and use either a .gtkrc-2.0 or a GUI preferences, if available for the particular window manager you use...

All these round cornered themes everyone seems to be coming up with have jagged looking edges on these rounded corners.

I see this very well and it's the one thing that turns me off from using them. It just doesn't look clean.

Is there anyway these can be cleaned up to look 100% smooth?

Seems like the developer hasn't been around for 2 years so not sure if he's going to see this, or this project is dead?

I really like this mouse cursor icon, but I noticed that when you put the mouse over something on Firefox and then click a link and it goes back to the arrow, where ever the hand was located on the browser, when it changes from the hand to the arrow it jerks, meaning the motion of just changing from hand to arrow isn't smooth and it doesn't happen in the same spot.

where ever you place the hand, when it's changing from the hand to the arrow it should change in that spot and not move but it doesn't. For me it jerks, moves over to the right a little as it's changing and for me it's bothersome to my eyes, makes them feel like they are acting up, seeing something jiggle around.

I hope possibly the developer is still around and this can be fixed.

Where is the Linux respect around here?

1. You must not have used Linux for long.

2. Because of #1 you don't understand the Linux mentality.

3. Because of 1 & 2 combined this means you have no respect for Linux, trying to make it look like OS X.

If you like OS X then use it and buy yourself an Apple.

If you're a Linux geek then respect Linux and make something for it, to look like it!
