13/12/08: Initial upload.
15/12/08: Changed border size from 1x1 to 2x2.
20/12/08: Added alternative colors and matching Conky configurations.
20/02/09: It was a bit too dark before, so I increased the brightness by one shade. The alternative colors were removed as they were too annoying to manage.
22/03/09: Added the old (darker) version as an alternative.
08/07/09: Removed the darker version (too hard on the eyes), split the main theme and conky theme into two packages, cleaned up the code and tweaked the theme.
12/07/09: Fixed the CMD dialog.
22/07/09: Made the CMD dialog slightly bigger and changed the Conky theme.

Hi Pnevma,

This is an awesome pekwm theme and I was just wondering what your Xdefaults/resources file looked like for those nice terminal colors. They are most certainly easy on the eyes.

If you could post them or tell us where you got them, that would be great.

Thanks Pnevma!

I made them using Color Schemer (http://www.colorschemer.com/online.html). You can find them here http://github.com/Pnevma/config/tree/master/.Xdefaults#L65

Heya Pnevma,

Thanks for the quick response. This is awesome! I'll be using that colorschemer for sure. I always seem to find myself hand editing my .Xdefaults anyway, so maybe this will make things eaiser :) I'll download your config from github for sure.

Thanks again Pnevma,

Chre Lad

Hi, I don't know why but your theme does not work for me. It just give me a plain pixel border while there is no problem with the borders of root menus and so. I got a screenshot for you: http://omploader.org/vMTF5YQ

I am using pekwm 0.1.9a under Arch.

It uses a plain pixel border for everything else besides the menus. The stippled border doesn't look too good if it's used on anything but something with a matching color.

Use something like this in your autoproperties:

Quote:DecorRules {
Property = "^urxvt,^URxvt" {
Decor = "Menu"
}
Property = "^Weechat,^URxvt" {
Decor = "Menu"
}
}

...if you want to force the stippled borders onto certain application. It works well with terminals.

Ah, that's transset-df and xcompmgr. I have Mod1 + C binded in PekWM to do 'transset-df -p' which will make any window transparent.

Well, I uploaded a screen shot of my current setup using Murreza - http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Murreza?content=93558, which I made too. Besides that, I suppose any dark theme would look good.

Very awesome indeed!

A couple of questions:

How do you make titlebar-less themes?

Also: What's that pager thing at the bottom of your screenshot?

Hey, thanks for the comment. To make a theme titlebar-less, you just use the placeholder texture, "Empty", where you would usually put your titlebar textures (buttons sub-section).

And by pager, do you mean the workspace indicator? That's what shows up when you change workspaces. I just GIMP'd all of it together for the screen shot.

Ah, I don't get a workspace indicator when I change workspaces.

Also, trying this now. I'm not getting ANY borders of any kind. Am I doing something wrong?

Oops, double post. Uhm, you are using PekWM 1.8/1.9? It doesn't seem to work in 1.7.

You can toggle the workspace indicator in you config file.

I am using what comes standard in Intrepid Ibex.

Which I believe is 1.5. LOL.

I think I need to remove this installation and manually compile the latest version. I didn't know it was already up to 1.9!

Haha, it's actually only up to 1.8. I've been using the git version (1.9) for a while now. I forgot it hasn't actually been released.

As for why it won't work in anything but 1.8+, I figured out the define function I used was only just introduced into 1.8.

I'll edit the description to note that.

I understand. I shall uninstall PekWM now and compile 1.8.
