Description:

Clear-enGlish Theme pack (Picframe Themes) Updated 26 Feb 2008. For "Picframe Old"

Config files removed (I did not like the constant nagging on startup).

Delivered here as .tar.bz2 files to work with the new behaviour of Screenlets 0.0.12

Download "archived_themes.tar.gz" to your desktop.
Right click on it and open with "archive manager".
Extract the folder to your desktop.(Inside it are all the original themes as .tar.bz2 files... Leave them like this).
Open "Screenlets Manager" from System, Preferences, Screenlet Manager.
Select the picframe screenlet and press (install Screenlet Theme).
Navigate to the extracted folder "archived_themes".
Select the theme you require and press Open.
Restart the picframe screenlet.
Your new theme should now be available.
Repeat as desired for any or all of the other themes.


For a set of themes to be consistent the settings need to remain the same for all. Using the settings shown in the screenshot (image scale 0.45, offset X 3, offset Y 13) I get good results with png files in a local folder re-sized to 200 x 150 px.


All of my editing has been done in the svg editor "Inkscape", this can be found in your ubuntu repository or at

http://www.inkscape.org/

Inkscape is Open Source and available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X.
Many good tutorials can be found at

Have fun, I would really appreciate any feedback and possibly requests.

Of course, if you don't like the behaviour of the config files, just delete them. They can be found in each themes folder.

Hi whise. You said "forget that last part , it could be used but it would need some changes".
Is that changes that I could make to the themes? or is that changes needed to the screenlet?

Thank you for the encouragement Whise.
Your suggestion of a theme.conf file is interesting.
I have no idea where to start, could you post an example of the text needed?
Do I just then place each individual theme.conf file in each theme folder?
Can this include the Image Scale factor as well?

the theme.conf file overriddes any variable that you specify , here is a sample from a theme.conf from the clock screenlet


# This is a theme-configuration with optional vars, meta-description
# and author-information for the theme. Any lines beginning with #, _, [,
# <EOL> or <SPACE> are ignored.

# The theme's meta-info
[Theme]
name = clock-theme
author = michote
version = 1.0
info = glassy and translucent

# This part causes the ClockScreenlet to override its options
[Options]
face_text=
scale=2.0



has you can see in the options section it overrides 2 variables face_text and scale ,but these are from the clock screenlet , what you have to do is open up the pictureframe screenlet and check what are the variables for the scale x and y

Fantastic, I am setting about the process of writing theme.conf files for all my Picframe themes and will update the download version soon.

The text I am using follows your model, an example is :

# This is a theme-configuration with optional vars, meta-description
# and author-information for the theme. Any lines beginning with #, _, [,
# <EOL> or <SPACE> are ignored.

# The theme's meta-info
[Theme]
name = film-black
author = ClearenGlish
version = 1.0
info = Black Film theme with Orange text

# This part causes the PicframeScreenlet to override its options
[Options]
#scale = 2.0
image_scale = 0.45
image_offset_x = 3
image_offset_y = 13
