Wow man, looks like a guy could poke around in here for days and still not find everything! Looks interesting. I'll have to try it out!

Cool glad everyone's liking the new theme. Look for updates to come soon. (Current version lacks start button (i just r-click), calander, and improved user-end custimization. Maybe even color-changes are possible if there's interest.)

And remember comments not only help me but help you in getting the best there is to offer. So keep those comments coming.

This is a very desktop. I haven't configured anything specific yet, but not meaning to be overly picky, I find the need to add my 2 cents, just because I like this so much.

First, I really don't like the black edges. Looks like something is missing or didn't install properly.

Second, the text is way too small on my 1280 screen. I'd have to memorize stuff before I can use this with ease.

Third, a question.... did you design this so the taskbar can sit on the bottom? If so, very good. Esserant's Dojo WB is beautiful with this. If not, I'm missing something.

Fourth, the round media player in the upper right corner seems to not quite "go" with the rest of this theme.

Finally, I like gef's DX themes because I can get to links so easily. This one would require minimizing stuff first, which isn't what I'd personally like, which is why I like the taskbar active.

Having said all of the above, this is really inovative. In my opinion though, it just needs refinement. Great job!

736 downloads!!! really makes me want to do more themes

vetto had plans on porting this to 1600 res. but, i haven't heard back on anything definite. i'm currently working on a new theme but with any hope i'll be able to get back and possibly make that resolution jump for all of you soon.

still tinkering around with things though on this, so don't think i've abandoned this project. had an idea and needed to get that out of my system before getting back to this theme.

thanks to everyone's that downloaded and enjoyed the theme. look for more updates soon and that other theme that should be available soon, entitled 'minimalistic avocado'.

I can run winamp from the audio/utilities Panel, but I have not the pictures for the winamp controls to click on the page.

Do I have an old version ?? Do I need plugins ??

Hum, my experience with DesktopX is not going well. I got the error "Directshow failure : interface not registered. Terminate object media ?"

Then Winamp works with the control buttons but the sliding volume not

yes, laurentfr, you need to remove object media or it was try to use that as your default player. the elapse time is for object media, it won't work for winamp for now. as for the volume, it's been a problem since desktopx 2.1 was released. the plug-in i used originally doesn't work anymore. working on getting that fixed which should be available soon...the button should have had a mouse over text appear with 'web browser'. for those still having trouble finding it, it's the icon on the far left in the common shortcuts (the one with the expanding cicle) hope that helps.

How do you change the browser shortcuts?

Thanks,

great to hear object media is working for you.

to change the picture slide, you will need to open eve(photo).bmp and add - using that as your template - copy your own photos onto it. this might take some tries to get it right, but you shouldn't have any major difficulties with it.
