Quote:Also please justify any votes, it's really annoying when people vote things down without saying why.

In Germany we say: "Was der Bauer nicht kennt, dass frisst er nicht"

This means something like: "What you don't know you don't like" That's why your first attempt was voted _that_ down.

open the gtkrc file and add at the beginning

Hmm, I made a small change to them in 1.6.0-devel but it's not like the scales. I'll have a look

By the way, making the main widget (frame, whatever...) the same way you have done the toolbar/menubar would be pretty good! Is it impossible? (degraded -metallic- colors, not just plain ones)

Ok the Issue is that _MOTIF_WM_HINTS(_MOTIF_WM_HINTS) and _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_TOOLBAR seem to conflict.

But theres an easy workaround:

Andrea Vettorello told me this on the sawfish mailing list:

Quote:As a temporary hack, create a new "match windows" rule (Sawfish menu
-> Customize -> Matched Windows), use "^.*Screenlet\.py$" (without
quotes) as Name and select "Frame type" none under "Appearance", this
should remove decorations from all screenlets.

That solves the Issue. - Apr 04 2008

Man ... What's going on here? It's ok what he did!

Quote:you really think someone will pay 10$ to get a compilation of icons already available with some ridiculous minor changes ??

Why not? We also waist our time reading comments like yours.

Quote:People produce stuff thousand times more valuable than what you did and don't try to have it commercialised.

Quote:I think you should have paid to get an account in gnome-look, you should also have paid to download Tango icons and all the other icon sets...I mean, these things are soo much more valuable that your 'wonderful artwork'

That's your opionion. But it doesn't make sense that you want to pay for the acc and tango while -at the same time- attacking him 'cause of the Donation thing. Furthermore there are already LGPL'ed Icon sets that are commercial.
