Re: My tint2 config

Milozzy, Im glad you liked them. I was going to make a fake copy of the one you originaly wanted but I do not have time currently to mess with gimp. Sorry. but I hope you find something as a replacement.
G-luck!

VastOne,
I'll try to play more with tint2 with your updated code over the weekend and see how it goes smile Thanx for the updates!

I had the launchers setup correctly,I mean...
I copied over the original application's shortcuts from apps to the .tint2launchers dir and checking both paths and image paths on those two shortcuts were fine.
Maybe, you could try to put network manager and a mixer (amix) into your .tint2launchers dir ? As those were the only two having that blank issue ...
So i DO Not Know what to tell you...
Every other icon/launcher was fine.

VastOne wrote:

I updated the tint2 code which arrange it differently, that may help.  Also, the settings on padding and size of icons may differ on your setup than on mine.

As far as what the blank icons are, it would seem that these launchers are not setup correctly.

Let me know what I can do to help test it..

Re: My tint2 config

^ I do not use network manager or amix...  Can you post the .desktop file contents of both so I can take a look at them?

Re: My tint2 config

I see that some people have added a third virtual desktop. Do I do this in Tint2? I only find settings for single vs multi, and I don see anything in the default config file that can be changed to add a desktop nr. 3.

Another issue is that I uncommented the lines below in autostart config and rebooted, and then the the screen froze just after conky was loaded. I tried to log in with all possible session-types, but the same happened every time. I managed to boot in recovery mode and nano my way out of it, but I wonder why uncommenting these lines should cause the pc to become unresponsive. This question is probably not tint2 related, but at least it eye-candy related:)

Easily done with obconf or by editing ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml directly. Check it out: http://crunchbanglinux.org/search/?cx=p … 1040641j18

(edit) -- You should really open a new topic for your questions, rather than posting in the tint2 thread. You'll get better help that way.

Thanks. That`s just what I was looking for. No wonder I could not figure out how to do it. I was looking in the Tint2 config file.

Yes, I see your point, but I don`t want to spam down the forum. I just took a chance that people who are into Conky and Tint2 also are familiar with other types of eye-candy. I will research Cairo-compmgr when I`m ready, but I just wondered if it should be so dramatic to uncomment those lines. The script almost begged me to do it:D

Re: My tint2 config

Here's mine.
Here's mine.
i've been trying to get a unified icon theme for tint2 & gtk (my beloved ACYL) but... there's posts and threads, none of them has a global solution, none of them says it's impossible - ???
back to faenza-crunchbang, it looks decent together with desaturated default icons.

is it possible to change the icon size (slightly smaller) independent from panel height? preserving the 2-line text?

anyhow here's the code:

Well. I haven`t been able to do it myself. It seems that Tint2 refuses to use the icons you tell it to use. If you change the Icon Theme in lxappearence it will work for some tasks, but not for others... Tint2 seems to have a mind of it`s own. You can use a icon for a launcher, but when it appears in the taskbar it`s anybodys guess what`s showing there. Anyway, I like Tint2 a lot, so I will stick with it, and hope they will fix it sooner or later:)

Re: My tint2 config

There is a long winded discussion of this on the tint2 issues site here from a crunchbang user.  And it does not appear that it will be corrected from the tint2's developers.

What it boils down to is location of the icon files, I use launchers and as stated those are easy to correct.  But for the tray and the taskbar icons, I had to dig into my ~/.icons/LinuxLex-8/mimetypes and find the correct icon and replace it with what I want.

It is not an easy task but it can be done.

This my my tint2 with Launchers on the left, tasks centered and the system tray right.

Re: My tint2 config

Edit: Does anyone actually use tint2conf? I only did first the other day. Has icon sizes though.. ...I've never a problem with changing their size...

Re: My tint2 config

^ tint2conf is one of the poorest written tools I have ever used.  It has done more damage on my tint2 files than anything I have seen.

I refuse to use it or support it..  smile

What it boils down to is location of the icon files, I use launchers and as stated those are easy to correct.  But for the tray and the taskbar icons, I had to dig into my ~/.icons/LinuxLex-8/mimetypes and find the correct icon and replace it with what I want.

It is not an easy task but it can be done.

This my my tint2 with Launchers on the left, tasks centered and the system tray right.

Wow. Very nice. Well worth the effort. I will do it when I set up the new pc that I`m going to buy some time before christmas. But because this old wreck will be parked or reserved for highly unstable and experimental projects, then I think it`s not worth the effort on this pc.

In the meantime I`m configuring stuff that is easy to reuse on my next #!-config.  But I have enough to play with. Semplice 3.0 beta, just to be a little more daring smile , and I`m also roasting on a Saltimbocca 686 base, and it`s actually starting to take shape. I`m only struggling to make up my mind whether to keep it strictly openbox, or if I should install XFCE and run openbox inside XFCE. Well, I guess I could do both, but how shall I get the time to do all these projects. I`m using a lot of time just booting between distros, to do a little here and there. I find it quite impossible to focus on just one project. I`m all over the place. big_smile

One thing though, the more I work with another distro, the more it looks and feels like #! Maybe I should take the hint... big_smile

thanks for all your answers!

nope. tried that already.

Does anyone actually use tint2conf? I only did first the other day. Has icon sizes though. I've never a problem with changing their size...

i tried tint2conf and agree with vastOne. also it did nothing (fortunately) to tint2 or the config file. so if you managed to change icon sizes with tint2conf, could you take a look at tthe config file afterwards and tell me how it shows up? i guess you can't change it directly but through tweaking some padding values.

i think i read all the discussions jmcdowall started on that in different places.
i kind of like his persistence - though it's a small matter it looks like it should be easy to fix...

could you elaborate?
i think i read most of your tint2 thread(s) but i didn't find a way to explicitely change taskbar icons.

This explains it as well as anything and ew has done a lot of work on resolving these issues.  More than anything I am frustrated with the lack of development or evolving of Tint2.  It seems to me that this could be easily resolved within the tint2 code by if the developers added a similar statement like this:

taskbar_icon_theme = LinuxLex-8

+1 to that.

thanks to ew & vastOne.
yes, that sounds like a hell of a lot of BORING work.
but just out of curiosity (or persistence?): where would the infamous geany icon be?
(or, is there a thread/post that explains it?)

on a side note: i installed medit - seems just as good and fast as geany or gedit2, for a non-programmer.
but it doesn't show up in automatically updating debian menu - even after a reboot???

I`m not at the linuxpc now, so I`m not able to check if it`s in my Debian Menu. I rarely use it.
Anyway, you could just put this where you want it to appear on the menu ( /home/user/.config/openbox/menu.xml ) :

<item label="Medit Text Editor">
<action name="Execute">
<execute>medit %f</execute>
</action>
</item>

Then run

openbox --reconfigure
