Pretty happy with this I gotta say. the trick with the xfce panel is to skin the background and make your button logo transparent. Happy trails!

Excellent IRIX theme! Now one of my favorites together with the CDE / Motif theme... I love Unix workstation look ;) If this had similar color switching, border sizing scripts and maybe custom panel for the toolchest, then it would be absolutely perfect.

Oh and check out SparkyLinux. Not only a great minimal Debian live distro, but they have CDE in the repositories which inspired this project.

hmm maybe swapping out the window manager for icewm or fvwm95 which include a panel might do the trick here..

..been reworking the panel. Xfce 4.14 supports locking all the icons to say, 16x16 but where to find pixel art tray icons to complete the look? That part is for you guys to tinker with or you can ditch it all together and go back to minimizing to the desktop.

I share your sentiment. Why is color selection such a chore in linux? What I miss most from mwm guis is pressable button style titlebars as trivial as that sounds. It's got that tactile look and feel you don't get with xfwm. Could you suggest a wm with that and a good ui?

I was previously using fvwm, it has color theming and built-in CDE/motif look that I wanted. Not sure about good ui, it has to be all done by user :D For me it was too much work to maintain my configuration (I have to do real work with my VMs, not just tuning desktops), so I moved to XFCE and the nice themes here at xfce-look.org to get the same effect.

Switching colors directly in fvwm might not be that easy, because IRIX style borders need to be pixmaps. I think the best solution for color theming would be using something similar to python scripts for CDE style xfwm theme here https://www.xfce-look.org/p/1231025/. This theme has all the color palettes from CDE, but could (maybe) easily use IRIX palettes instead.

The Ichago theme which mine is based on comes with dynamic wm borders for Metacity, if you're into that. https://www.pling.com/p/1006689/. Also, there's a neat theme builder utility I've seen bundled with Redmond97 https://www.pling.com/p/1313764/ which is the way to do it. There's always gnome-color-chooser and check out Oomox if you want to go ham on your GTK3 theme. Don't forget qt5-style-plugins for automatic QT conversion.

The default gray and gold is quite lovely though. It's pretty easy to touch up the pixmaps with your own color and do a quickie find and replace in the gtkrc. Just digging up the color schemes is a bit of a job as IRIX emulation is super slow. Meh. I'll probably end up doing it...

Emulation? Nice, so you are using that "new" IRIX support in MAME?

I have those IRIX color schemes from another IRIX look-alike project somewhere in my HDD.
I remember each scheme having lots of color definitions. Hard part would be
figuring out where each of them goes in the UI.

Yes, shout out to dexter1 on the irixnet forums. I had no luck with the docker instructions but got it working in MAME, which is a new development indeed. First thing I did was painstakingly extract the wallpapers. Figured someone already had the color palettes just wasn't sure if what was available was authentic. Send them my way when you get a chance davem82 at yandex com.

Okay. Well, I'll do one or two by hand and if I can automate the process, I will.

Thanks. Woo boy that's a lot of combinations. It's a big job and I don't want to sacrifice quality for quantity. I wouldn't mind doing a couple by hand though as I saw a blue one that I liked. Do you have any particular favorites?

Yeah, that is why automation is recommended if that task is pursued. My favorites after default IndigoMagic are maybe "Milan" and "Mendocino"
