Description:

previously fuglyfolder.

Is a kde icon theme that changes the
folder.

Feel free to do whatev.

A lot of folders still missing, it will
inherit the seans leo-like icon theme.

Sean names every version of the
leo like theme different so its impossible
to inherit it when its updated,
so you need to edit this line in
index.theme:

Inherits=leopardV6,oxygen

to the name he has on it then.

If you dont have it installed then it
inherits oxygen.... ofc.

....I guess thats all, please insult me!

Requests?

Fine work again, man. Couple of follow-up questions concerning your screenshots:

1) I'm guessing you've tweaked your panels personally to mimic the AWN Lucido style; any tips on how to do that? Or, if it IS AWN, how'd you get the bespin global menu to work with it?

2) Is that gloobus-preview? I've failed to get that working nicely myself; any tips on that?

Otherwise, if you don't wanna bother with my tedious bullshit, just take my thanks for the folder set. Take care!

Thx man!

Well... the panels aren't plasma, and yes,
is gloobus preview... well, I don't know,
I just grabbed the latest stable tarball
from the home page and compiled it, needs
some libraries to compile, but the configure
errors should point them out :)

Thanks for the info. I guess the info I was looking for was how to set up a hotkey combo to get a selected file onto the clipboard and open a gloobus window with one quick stroke; sorry for the lack of detail. I just switched over to KDE about six weeks ago, so I'm still trying to figure all this out. I'll see what I can figure out; if you could help me with the hotkeys, I'd appreciate it. Again, thanks a lot!!!!

First: Thank you Rob for all these inspirering screenshots and for all your work!

I also searched for a preview-tool and so I am happy that you showed me gloobus-preview.

With this hint you can start gloobus-preview with one shortcut:

1) Install xdotools

2) create a script called gloobus-preview.sh or something like this in any folder. The content of the gloobus-preview script has to be:

xdotool key "ctrl+c"
gloobus-preview

3) Then in console do: sudo chmod a+x gloobus-preview.sh

4) Go to systemsetting --> shortcuts (in german its called: Kurzbefehle und Gestensteuerung)

5) There you have to add a new shortcut where you select your favourite key-combination (for me: Ctrl+Space) and the command to execute (the path to the gloobus-preview.sh)

Now you can select a file in dolphin and when you press Ctrl+Space, the gloobus-preview with the file you selected starts.

Hope this helps!

Best regards!

Hmmmmmmmmmmmm, ic, well personally I only
use gloobus to preview image files real
quick, so I have just set it to be the
default program for normal image types...

...I guess you could configure gloobus to
be run when you press a certain keycombination,
however, you'd still have to press ctrl+c,
and then then the comb you set for gloobus,
this would be fast enough for me, but, not
sure if is for you :)

see if I could if I wanted to :)

Gonna try and make a whole icon theme

Just checked out a tutorial to make ONE icon with inkscape...time frame
ONE HOUR.
I might as well forget a leolike svg theme then.

My thoughts exactly when Thomas told
me that all the bespin icons would be
done in inkscape ;-)

but once you get a little used to
it you make icons a lot faster then in gimp.

Plus, you get the scaling benefit.

What is it that you have the most trouble with?

I really liked your first version and I like the effect just sand.
I am impressed by your work. ^ ^
Especially since I am a true cock-building theme of icons.
I'm a fan of gray icons. The same version with clear icons to the system tray and is perfect for my Dark themes: p

Ps: Sorry for my english ^ ^

Great! So I take it you dont want any
changes then?

Yeah tray icons is a little tricky tho,
as the icons shown in the tray are also
used elsewhere where one would not like
a monochrome icon, plus I'm supposed to be
workin on the bespin icon theme so I
guess this theme will not become any bigger...
...was mostly an experiment anyways, wanted
to see if I could make a decent folder
icon in inkscape :)

Hehe, thx! I'm not at all happy with them
tho, hence the "fuglyfolder" name ;-)

What I'm looking for is insults like:
"fu, fix the bottom, the dark line there
doesnt make any sense" or similar ;-)
