Volume works fine here on XP SP2 using WMP as the default.

I already tried the manual update button but it still keeps saying: "awaiting news update"
Other skins don't have that problem, so what am I doing wrong here?

Nevertheless... Awesome theme!!! I think I'll be using this one for a looooong time

It looks like there's a Firefox ActiveX control now:


It's the only thing keeping me fomr using this theme, otherwise it's perfect.

I've tried using this control and it just crashes the theme

Terrific theme - thanks for sharing. Will definitely be my new working environment.

Sadly I managed somehow to permanently crash the RSS news display:
I tried to add 'http://www.heise.de/newsticker/heise.rdf' as RSS source. Header was displayed but no messages (don't know why). But THEN I tried some other feed from 'http://www.presseportal.de/rss/rss.htx' Maybe it is because the header is too long, however the display is corrupted and the control for changing RSS source is not visible anymore. I cannot change it back.

Any suggestions?

Agglo: Not sure why this has happened. You probably need to delete the stored value from the registry.

Unload DesktopX then use Regedit.

I can't remember exactly where in the registry it is (and I'm at work so can't check). It's something like HKCU/Software/DesktopWidgets/Desktop/Newsfeed.

Just search for "DesktopWidgets" or maybe "Desktop Widgets" and delete the newsfeed line in the desktop section.

After that it should work OK when you restart DX. I'll have a look at the problem with these feeds when I get home.

Thank you Martin, removing the feed from the registry fixed the problem.
However I am not sure why the other feed (http://www.heise.de/newsticker/heise.rdf) does not work.
Comment #52 Monday, April 25, 2005 3:02 AM
Agglo, these feeds should work now. They are not well formatted which is what causes the problems. The new version is more tollerant of this.

This is a great theme. This is a good shift toward making the desktop a functional space. Nice work. Thanks.

How do I install it? It doesn't come with a DesktopX suite file, just some .PNG's and others...
It looks like a masterpiece, so I would be thankful if you could help me!
Comment #57 Friday, May 06, 2005 8:08 AM
SHould be a dxtheme file. Maybe XP SP2 renamed it. Change the extension to .dxtheme and it should be fine!

Jumpinfrog - there are VB scripts in DesktopX themes and some AV programs can be overly sensitive about this. I assume you there is no virus or spyware in it.
