I absolutely loved the WB by geyster and have been using it since he put it out. Now this...this is just the icing on the cake. Could you tell me how to get the weather and calendar? If they are not available, is there any chance you could Email me them? Thank you for a great DX to compliment the WB. This is fabulous.

Well dumb me...figured out how to get the weather and calendar.Boy do I feel dumb. LOL...this is a great Dx program. Guess I need to play with it before asking any more stupid questions. Thanks again.

I love this theme...don't get me wrong, I just don't use them! I was only looking for the calender and weather.......can you offer them as a stand alone object? Please let me know...thanks

Very nice theme! Couple of comments though. Is the wall in your screenshot supposed to be included in the theme? If so, it's not there, so could a link to it be provided? Also, I note that when loading your theme, my cpu useage jumps from 2-5% up to 55%. Don't know why and have only seen this prob before when net in/out stats are in a theme and they're not in yours, so????? Anywho, great theme.

Looks like a great theme but I hope you can let us know for what resolution this theme goes with. Afraid to download it untill I know, thanks.
Comment #6 Saturday, March 13, 2004 2:51 AM
mortalmisfit: (Sorry about the resolution.) It's 1280x1024.

Maggot: I don't remember where I snagged the wallpaper, which is not included. probably from deviantART or one of the other sites. It's called CopperWormHole.

Also, I do have net in/out stats. I've never noticed any problems with them. I have had the problem you mentioned (not with this theme) and started deleting objects until the cpu(s) ped. It was a recycle bin object. The net stats can be found in the system info object in the utilities menu.

p.s. Thanks for the nice comments. I didn't do the art, geyster gets ALL the credit for that, but this is the first chance I had to put up one of my desktopx themes.

Cool theme .......Awesome choice in music
Comment #9 Saturday, March 13, 2004 9:58 AM
Icky, thanks for the response. Will look for the wall. Also, one other item occuring on your theme which I have a question about. The media player button bmps aren't there. I checked the theme contents but, they don't appear to be included. The "hole" bmp is there and I have the letters "d, e, f, g, =, and h " instead of player buttons. Just wonderin'??? Thanks again for info I queried last.
Comment #10 Saturday, March 13, 2004 10:52 AM
Maggot, I'll give a big....oops on the buttons. I use a goofy font that actually has cassette buttons in them. My media player has been like that for so long I forgot to change them. I'll get some graphics for it.

fivesballs, puppy and slick idiot. My lot in life!

Very nice theme but you might want to check-out the theme description.
Comment #12 Sunday, March 14, 2004 7:16 AM
gef....what about the description? I spell something wrong?

Mostly it's just blah, blah, blah stuff.
Comment #13 Sunday, March 14, 2004 8:26 AM
Icky ... If you right-click the desktop, 'load theme' and browse to your theme, see what it says there.

How do u make a skin
Comment #15 Monday, March 15, 2004 12:24 PM

Typical of me. All I normally do is change graphics and such so I have all the same items in my menus and neat little buttons.

Never thought of changing the description. Live & learn huh?
Comment #16 Wednesday, March 31, 2004 8:54 AM
Zope: Sorry for the late response. Simply hold down the CTRL key and right click.

I have it set so the text has no activation but a mouse over of the button will cause a mouse over of the text.
Comment #17 Sunday, May 30, 2004 6:49 PM
your theme is great,but do you have a calandar which shows the month when you go forward or backwards
Comment #18 Friday, June 18, 2004 6:04 AM
Great theme, really sorry. I can't work out how to change the text of the buttons at the side?
Comment #19 Tuesday, August 31, 2004 12:26 PM
omg...i just signed up...first thing i did was download this...great theme man.
Comment #20 Wednesday, September 08, 2004 12:36 PM
Sorry I haven't been looking at the comments (I get lazy).

You can change the text on the buttons by finding the button.?.label object (or hold control when right-clicking text since it has no activation).
