Yeah it saved me a lot of trouble of backing up all my configs when i want to change the look of my desktop.
that'd be neat. but til then we can use it the old fashioned way

What a good idea! I feel that everyone's wanted that but no one has done it til you ... GOOD JOB!
in a related note, can you share your tint2rc? That is super boss. (The green one, @none)

^ That's it thanks!
Punch all your friends.
Very useful program will be using this from now on, thanks
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

I will have to try ACYL like icons again to see what you're talking about.
(of, you could try making a plugin !)
brilliant - great app!

Si, enlighten the dumbass here: This is something with what i'll be able to modify my desktop with a few clicks? If it is, mad respect. You made it easy for a lot of us to make things look better

@damo - thanks!
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.

i feel the love here.
Just going to do a shameless bump and let people know a #!'er is going at it adding support for other programs.
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
Its probably my own ineptitude.
Anyone else had this, or have a fix for the p.i.c.n.i.c. problem?
Edit: It doesn't seem to like resizing for me either
Edit: ps- this looks really great otherwise and a really good addition to any system where customization is ongoing. Like back up too..

This looks like a REALLY interesting application. I will definitely be using it once I get #! working on my laptop.

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.
@katsh: Mighty cool.
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.

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
Anymay away icklemay akesmay away ucklemay.
This works perfectly. Just what i needed as i just wanted do create a different style for my machine :-)
