Re: mmm...crunchbox

Very useful program will be using this from now on, thanks big_smile

Note - If anyone is using the AnyColorYouLike icon theme, you will notice no difference for icons since AnyColourYouLike sets the icon settings.

A workaround is to set the icons with AnyColorYouLike say for a Dark theme, go into AnyColorYouLike folder thats in .icons, copy the scalable folder and the index.theme file into a folder in .icons, say 'Dark'. then open the index.theme file for Dark, and change the name to Dark or whatever you want to call the icon set.
Then just load up lxappearance and set the icon set then save it crunchbox.

Repeat this for each theme you have and the icons will change with crunchbox.

Time to start adding my themes smile

Nearly right smile - it saves your current desktop setup, including a screengrab. Then you can choose the theme you like with a click - conky, tint2, ob theme, wallpaper etc etc. You would have to do the mods yourself though

The more I'm playing with it, the more impressed I get...mucho kudos @none big_smile

Re: mmm...crunchbox

@damo - thanks!

@Holden

This allows you to change the look of your desktop and save the way it looks.
Typically, i set up my desktop just the way i like it - this usually takes me a whole day/afternoon...conkyrc, tint2rc, gtk themes, xterm colors, etc

Then at some point later in life, i'll want to try a total different look. So ill save my current desktop state with Crunchbox, and then change everything...then save that too. Then i can easily switch between the two by clicking on the screenshot Crunchbox takes.

shit, i made that youtube video so long. I should make a shorter one.

Just going to do a shameless bump and let people know a #!'er is going at it adding support for other programs.

Re: mmm...crunchbox

I installed this but unfortunately each time I save a config it just saves a whole screen image, and they don't seem to reduce in size the same way the creators do. Hence I haven't been been able to use it, and its just sitting there, redundant  cry

Its probably my own ineptitude.

Anyone else had this, or have a fix for the p.i.c.n.i.c. problem? smile

Edit: It doesn't seem to like resizing for me either cry

Edit: ps- this looks really great otherwise and a really good addition to any system where customization is ongoing. Like back up too..

Re: mmm...crunchbox

This is awesome. I found this while lurking on the forums.
Funny that for many years I've been actively looking for something like this and now it pops up when I least expected.

I see a lot of neat projects springing to existence right here at #! forums. This feels like the golden years of gnome2 where more and more people were contributing with simple gnome/gtk applications.

I checked the source code, it is beautifully written. simple, clear, to the point, it does what it is intended to.

Thank you, If I pick up one of my old projects, I'll add suport on crunchbox.

Re: mmm...crunchbox

@katsh: Mighty cool.

p.s.
a. after making two snaps, the folder .config/crunchbox/configs/Conky is empty, is that normal?
b. where are the profile names stored? (or are they the text before .jpg?)

basically iam interested in copy pasting everything from machine to machine.

Re: mmm...crunchbox

Thumbs up for the great idea, katsh! Imho this should make it into the default install letting a new user chose between dark and light themes, at least. Mind you,  I still haven't tested it myself as have only seen this thread today  tongue

Re: mmm...crunchbox

Can I trust my eyes ? Recently I discovered "Tint2conf", which
is nearly the same than "Crunchbox", but only for Tint2, plus
a real wizard, and now this here !

Very useful, essential tool, should really become part of #!, when
finished !

@ katsh : Brave done, particularly for themers a must-have ! Seems to
work in most parts, but I found some glitches.

Console shows this here while running:

/home/bob/crunchbox-master/src/gui.py:36: DeprecationWarning: Use the
new widget gtk.Tooltip self.tooltip = gtk.Tooltips()

/home/bob/crunchbox-master/src/gui.py:92: DeprecationWarning: Use the
new widget gtk.Tooltip self.tooltip.set_tip(b, f[:-4])

Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to
retrieve property `GtkWidget::link-color' of type `GdkColor'
from rc file value "((GString*) 0x1daf6c0)" of type `GString'

Gtk-Message: (for origin information, set GTK_DEBUG): failed to
retrieve property `GtkWidget::visited-link-color' of type `GdkColor'
from rc file value "((GString*) 0x1daf640)" of type `GString'

The doubleslashes in these lines are meaningless, I think:

Loading cfg file: /home/bob/.config/crunchbox/configs//Urxvt/.Xresources-Green

What really does not work is the setting of the new conky. The conkyrcs are
correctly saved in the .../configs/Conky - dir, but Conky's default path for
it's rc is in the home - dir, so it will not find the new one.

And in Sunflower-FM, the headers between the tabrows and the panes are keeping
the colors from the previous theme.

Hope you have the time and the pleasure to work on this project furthermore !

@ Mod : Running in danger for getting a livetime-ban, I may ask you, why you
have not moved this thread into "Tips, Tricks & Scripts", where it would fit
better? I only found it here accidently !

Cheers,

errorist
