You could try shrinking the font for the label. Open up macos.xml with a text editor and look for the username label (line 31).

Play around with the font attribute (e.g. change font="Sans 10" to font="Sans 8") and save the changes. Once you get a font size that works do the same for the other labels. Hope it works! - Dec 17 2006
I made it a few years ago by combining two wallpapers; A macintosh graphite wallpaper with an "end of evangelion" wallpaper. - Mar 26 2006

There's a tutorial over at the baghira website. This link will take you straight to the "I want a Mac OS X like menubar!" section: - Dec 12 2006
If I'm not mistaken I believe that compiz has metacity support meaning that it should be able to use metacity (i.e. gnome) window themes. - Nov 15 2006
so, you're running gnome-window-decorator as your window decorator... I've done a bit of googling and I haven't found how to change the window theme or whether its even possible. When compiz first came out, the window theme was hardcoded meaning that there was no way to change it.

The compiz-quinn branch came up with CGWD as a substitute for gnome-window-decorator in order to allow the user to change window themes. When compiz-quinn forked from compiz and became beryl, CGWD was replaced by emerald.

So, I guess that what I'm trying to say is that I don't know how one can change or add window themes for compiz. Sorry :( - Nov 10 2006
Try this, open a terminal and enter the following command:

ps aux | grep gnome-window-decorator

and post the result. - Nov 09 2006
That's going to depend on which window decorator you're using (e.g. CGWD, emerald).

I'm using beryl (in Fedora Core 5) instead of compiz so my window decorator is emerald. Previously, when I used compiz-quinn the window decorator was CGWD. Before that it was gnome-window-decorator.

I don't know which compiz window decorator fedora 6 comes with. See if you can find out which decorator it comes with and let me know and I'll try to find out if this theme is compatible and how you can install it. - Nov 08 2006

I hadn't seen the other replies to my message. I tried running it as root, here's the output:

[root@yukikaze daniel]# kwlan

No GUI comes up. Here's the output of "ifconfig -a":

No, I don't get any type of output when I run it from konsole. It just returns to the prompt:

[daniel@yukikaze ~]$ kwlan
[daniel@yukikaze ~]$ - Jul 18 2006
I compiled the latest version of kwlan using automake-1.9 (instead of the default automake-1.7) in Fedora Core 5 and installed it. Whenever I run it (from konsole or from the menu) nothing happens... no errors, no gui, nothing. Any ideas? - Jul 10 2006
