absolutely beautiful theme, very elegant.
i have a question, maybe a stupid one: when i installed this theme the window application icon is still on its regular position: in the upper left corner and when the window is minimized then directly beneath the application name. how can i make them disappear just like in your preview (no icon, only the text)?
hope you can help me with this, thank you.

I love this VS, but I found one specific issue with it. I observed this with Pidgin, but it should be reproduceable with more than that:
When this VS is applied, the text-input box will always be at minimum size until something is typed into it, and then return to that right after. Noticing the cursor, it seems it is set to really really small fontsize, hence 3 lines of input box are only 10 pixels or something.

This only happens with this specific VS, I tried a few just now, and normally using Auriel 2.

Thanks for your reply, I'll already tried to modify a few (startpanel) pane sizes with res-edit but somehow I can't get it to show a compact menu.

Any pointers on which values I need to change ?

Thnx in advance, and keep up the good work !

:iconkrissirk:
krissirk Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2009
for a good compact menu, you need to change this values like this:


[StartPanel]
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 140, 440

[StartPanel.Logoff]
ContentMargins = -2, 0, -1, 0
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 140, 16

[StartPanel.MorePrograms]
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 100, 15

[StartPanel.PlacesList]
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 25, 162

[StartPanel.ProgList]
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 95, 306

[StartPanel.UserPane]
DefaultPaneSize = 0, 0, 140, 15

if you don't understand, leave me your mail, i 'll send you a version with compact menu ;)
