It seems that icons for for instance files that have been downloaded appear behind the screenlet. Is there any way to prevent this?

oh, i think, there´s no way :(
cause it´s a just a normal screenlet but with transparent background
and ALL screenlets are over the desk-icons :(
sorry, i can´t help here

I read somewhere that it's possible to set a screenlet to ignore all input, which would basically mean that icons can be dragged from behind a screenlet. Do you have any idea how to accomplish this?

BTW. I forgot to say that I really like the theme. One point of attention: the album cover stands a bit out in most wallpaper/cover combinations. What would be nice is something like a CD case image around the album cover. Perhaps even some glossy effect over the cover itself.

Thanks for your work!

i think you have to change a variable in __init__.py for screenlets in the self.window-section (line 822 +)
you can find gtk.gdk Constants here: http://www.pygtk.org/docs/pygtk/gdk-constants.html
and especially event-masks here:
http://www.pygtk.org/docs/pygtk/gdk-constants.html#gdk-event-mask-constants
if you find a way, plz tell me :)

and thx for your nice words, glad you like it
i set the opacity of the nowplaying to 80%, so the cover is not as outstanding as with 100% and flows with the desktop background

Very, VERY good.

As an aside, I'm also interested in what font and font settings you use in your theme in general. :)
