Hi,
after a long time I'm looking again at this side and can see... that nothing has changed... :(
So lonerocker, are you still working on it (and if not: are you working on anything other?) or is it time for a fork? ;)

I'm actually satisfied with this theme, but if you want to continue it or make a fork, go ahead.
After this one I was working on Roedor, also for XFCE and Gnome.

All I could do is replacing a few death links (some progs don't show the icons anymore). I think that's not enough for a fork.
But maybe some time in the future I will learn how to make good looking SVGs and then I could fork it, if you don't update it till then. :)

@brainvision: the 103 version is not for XFCE only, it's just I uploaded last night, before going to bed, and I just haven't uploaded in gnome-look yet. Besides, this version also inlcudes the apps in PunkNadel list (dvd::rip, Lives and hardware listener), I just forgot to mention it.
If you have more apps suggestions, feel free to ask.

I'm glad it's been enjoyed.

hi lonerocker

I'm very happy to see that you are still working on shining reprise and that it likes so much to all the people (more than 2100 downloads at gnome-look!! in 2 months!! WOW)!!
as you titled this topic, I would like to ask for.. a couple of things :)
1. it seems that it had been mods on these sites, 'cauze 'till last gtk theme I upload for my account, uploading something to www.xfce-look.org was like upload it at gnome-look, too, and to kde-look and so on..! All the servers were linked, in 2 words..
Now rules are changed? I saw that also comments are different in shining repirse between xfce-look and gnome-look! A few months ago they were the same everywhere!!

2. I tried shining reprise for pidgin tray.. but it's not working!

3. my list:
- deadbeef player
- decibel audio player
- emacs
- vim
- red notebook
- epdf viewer
- text room
- gqview
- fotoxx
- terminator
- another terminal icon version
- poedit
- sweet home 3d
- (games, games: assault cube, openarena, urban terror, sauerbraten, pingus, super tux, nevernoid, lbreakout, breakout, metal blob solid.. and so on :D :D )

Thank you very much, my friend..
see ya!

1). In xfce-look there is the category for "xfce icon theme", and in gnome-look for "gnome icon theme", thus, the same theme appears as different when it's actually the same. Same thing with the comments. As for gtk themes is a shared category, that's why a theme appears on both (and others that use gtk) sites.

2). what version of pidgin do you have?, for themes I think you need 2.6 or above. If it's not this, don't know what to say.

3).I take note.

4). thanks again for the comments.

i'm using the last 2.7.0 version! :D
I noticed that in the tray directory there is this structure:
dir: 16/status
dir: hicolor

in the hicolor dir there are:
dir: 16/status
dir: 24/status
dir: 32/status
dir: 64/status

and in eache dir the filenames are like: pidgin-*.*

while yours are tray-offline and so on..

I try to follow the same structure of the original icons but they still don't work!!

hi man,

very good icons, I must admit!
The theme was one of my preferred 'till the original release but this is much better, even if I think you have to add a lot of icons, haven't you??

just a little personal suggestion: slackware on, please!! why all the themes are always missing the icon for this fundamental release??

Thank you very much for paying attention and please go on with Shinig!, it's so coll!!
bye bye, man, see you soon!! :D

I've made a new release including most apps in the list, excepting these ones:
- LiVES
- dvd::rip
- Hardware Listener
Couldn't find apps with those names. May be if you give me some info, I could work on them.

Games will be on a next version.

I wrote a patch for the xfce4-weather plugin which offers an easy solution for custom icons (see: http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6464 )
Is it possible to make the missing weather icons? It looks nice with the icons providet but it's not the best ^^

Keep in mind that this icon set would be the first one with custom weather icons if the patch goes upstream :)

Ok, I have the icons, but don't know where to put them, or how to use the patch
:(

Pity.
So you will (again) try to compile it from source (you need build tools and for example the gtk-2 header files) or wait till the patch goes upstream.

But the icons seem to work: http://img85.imageshack.us/img85/470/weathernewicons.png

it dowsn't work...
the only file with that name is in /usr/lib/xfce4-weather-plugin/xfce4/panel-plugins , and when replacing it the plugin doesn't load.
I opened the file with mousepad, and it seems to be almost empty, it just says "ELF"

okay, try this:
- locate the xfce4-weather-plugin (under gentoo it's found at /usr/libexec/xfce4/panel-plugins/)
- !!! BACKUP IT !!!
- replace it with this one: http://rapidshare.com/files/392717932/xfce4-weather-plugin-patched.tar.bz2

I don't know if this will work but we can try ;)

can't see it working, because on ./configure it asks for gtk-2.0+ (or something like it) and don't have it installed. I tried to install it once some time ago and it screwed the systme with the dependancies... not something to repeat.
tell me if it works, and how.

yes, you have to rename the icons. you have to have:
xfce4-weather-0.svg to xfce4-weather-47.svg and xfce4-weather-99.svg
if you put them in a new (sub)folder you have to set this in the index.theme file, for example:
you make a new folder inside scalable called xfce4-weather, so you have to append it to the directory line, it should look like this:
Directories=scalable/actions,scalable/apps,scalable/categories,scalable/devices,scalable/emblems,scalable/emotes,scalable/filesystems,scalable/mimetypes,scalable/places,scalable/status,scalable/xfce4-weather

and at the end of the file you have to append something like this:
[scalable/xfce4-weather]
Size=48
Context=Status
Type=Scalable

the patch is for the sources of the plugin, I gave you commands to install a patched version.
the following line "executes" the patch:
patch -p1 < weather-themable-rev5.patch
by executing this inside the right folder the sources of the plugin will be rewritten.
The lines bevor that one will download and prepare everything needet and the lines
./configure
make
sudo make install
will compile and install it :)

sorry, but I don't understand...
I have the icons, from 0.svg to 47.svg and 99.svg, in a folder inside status. but still don't get how to use the patch
-do I have to change the name of the files, or the patch does it?
-do I have to execute the patch somehow, or replace some file with it?
-when I save it, does it have to have some special name or properties?

okay, first you have to find the icons without the patch. Under gentoo they are found in /usr/share/xfce4/weather/icons/liquid - there you see what icons are needet.
With the patch the icons have to be renamed:
01.png = xfce4-weather-01.*
02.png = xfce4-weather-02.*
...
and with the patch the icons have to be in the theme. you can make a own folder for it or use an existing (like status). Of course not only png is supported ;)

if you want to test the patch you have to build the plugin from source:
wget http://archive.xfce.org/src/panel-plugins/xfce4-weather-plugin/0.7/xfce4-weather-plugin-0.7.3.tar.bz2
tar xjf xfce4-weather-plugin-0.7.3.tar.bz2
cd xfce4-weather-plugin-0.7.3
wget http://bugzilla.xfce.org/attachment.cgi\?id\=2996
mv attachment.cgi\?id=2996 weather-themable-rev5.patch
patch -p1 < weather-themable-rev5.patch
./configure
make
sudo make install

or, for gentoo users (all as root) :
mkdir -p /etc/portage/patches/xfce-extra/xfce4-weather-plugin
wget http://bugzilla.xfce.org/attachment.cgi\?id\=2996
mv attachment.cgi\?id=2996 /etc/portage/patches/xfce-extra/xfce4-weather-plugin/weather-themable-rev5.patch
emerge --oneshot xfce-extra/xfce4-weather-plugin
