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.

Yes, I also can't figure out how to make the news feed work. Where do I go to put in the news feed url?
Comment #66 Thursday, June 09, 2005 2:43 AM
Sorry - there is a problem in that the BBC have just changed their newsfeed format so the script isn't working for the BBC. I'll try to update it ASAP. The newsfeed URL should be entered by clicking the "?" to the right of the title.

Hi Charms.

I'm really not sure what I can do about the calendar. I suspect that my script only has limited tollerance of different languages and I know there are many differences in Japanese that could cause issues. I don't however know how to fix this. If you want - email me directly with the error and I'll see what I can do, but I can't make promises.

The quick links I'm not sure about. What this does is delete the default objects and read new ones from a text file so it's not a resolution issue, it's just doing what it should do ... apart from drawing new ones. Can you create quick links?

The news I know is an issue as the BBC have changed it's format. I will get this fixed as soon as I can, but in the meantime try another feed by clicking the "?" next to the news. Try something like: http://www.allheadlinenews.com/rss/japan.xml

Feel free to email me.

Hi Martin,

Great theme, but I am having some problems with it:

The script for your calendar doesn't run on my japanese PCs for some reason. Any calendar built using that script has numerous errors that with my limited experience I can't track down. For example, the Silica calendar runs fine.

The Quick links dialog doesn't show the links. I watched as it loaded this time and the links are there, but they disappear when the screen settles in. Is this a resolution issue? How can I find them and make them show?

Finally, the news dialog shows no news available.

Any help any one can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Great to see you've finally found the time to finish the theme Martin. Looks great from the preview, will have to wait until i can get my computer up and running before i can test it out (can't wait to see how you went about incorporating a favorite links button for the web browser. would love to go back and add the feature to my RealDesktop theme)

i love the theme, im sure ill be using it for a long time now.

though i did run into a small bug.
-when you have winamp playing in the music tab, then switch to the notes tab, you can still randomly click the position bar, and change the music...

other then that, its PERFECT!
