Switchin LS by coroners Switchin LS by coroners
I have done mostly dark themes in the past but I thought it was time to try out something brighter.

Switchin LS

Thanks to Jaime-b for his Switch LS theme! I used it as reference for the coding [link]

The wallpaper in the preview is the beautiful Cristina Otero Pascual [link]


* UPDATE!

There is now a dark version of this theme that can be found here [link]

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-06-27
Switchin LS by ~x-spirit puts a simplistic yet wonderful looking bar to the top edge of your desktop from which you can access up to 12 shortcuts, control your currently playing music as well as performing some web search. besides, it does all this in a very beautiful and most inobstrusive way. this is LiteStep at its best.

According to the LSXCommand-2.0.2 documentation the command bar should work and I found no error with the google search so I don't know what's up with that I am afraid. You can set the Search bar to default by switching the hidden state of all the icons the commandbar and the switch button I am sorry but I don't have time to do it myself right now. If you find out what might be the issue with the search bar please leave a note. =)

Glad you like it! Should be pretty easy. Don't have this code in my head but I can take a look. Yes it's google by default and that should work but i'll look at that to.

I installed LS and your theme and everything works fine, except for the following message:

"Please load a desktopModule (Desktop2 or jdesk) BEFORE xTaskbar!
Otherwise you will get annoyng Z-Order problems!"

I loaded jdesk 0.74, copying it into Modules folder, and I changed the theme.rc, editing the *netModuleLine from 0.73 to 0.74.
I don't know what else I missed. I uploaded an img of the SliModuleManager to show you the modules situation:

Thanks for your help!

P.S.: I'm on windows 7 x64

Haven't heard of this problem I am afraid. Have you tried putting the jdesk module line before the xtaskbar one as stated in the error message? That would help jdesk load before xtask witch seems to be the problem for some weird reason. Can't think of anything special that makes the error happen. Sorry. I am not really a tech with these things I mostly go round these errors with trail and error approach. Hope you manage to find a solution to the problem. Peace!

Thanks for your answer. Do you know how to put jDesk first? Cause the SliOnlineModule categorizes them by alphabetic order I think...

Great work! Just a question: How do I get the tray to appear? Whenever I click the 'show tray' button, all that appears is a small black rectangle, like so [link] . Thanks for your help. Sorry if the solution is quite obvious, though I just can't seem to figure it out.

Weird that little black thing you see is the tray so the problem is not that it's not showing the problem is that nothing in the tray is showing. Never encountered the problem myself. Have had some icons not showing up in the tray from time to time while using litestep but never had all missing. What OS are you running? Have had no similar reports either so can't figure out what might be the problem. Maybe the tray module it self is failing to load for some reason.

Scratch that. I figured out the solution this morning. All I needed to do was restart my computer (I'm running Vista). Haha. Thanks anyway! Keep up the great work. :)

I will do a black revision of this theme. It's in the making but can't say when I will be done because life is hectic in all the wrong ways atm. No time for art or customization. I CRY! But it will be done as soon as I get some free time.

It's in the works now and most of the layout and graphics are done. Still needs to be coded but it's not years away. Made some stuff more handy to use and cleaned some stuff up. Think you will like it! Stay tuned.

Had the same problem using litestep on windows 7 at the beginning then had it on xp for awhile as well. And now I can't remember how it was fixed. Nothing to do with the theme I think? I have had it on several.

Hey, using your theme and i really like it, Two things though;

Is there anyway to make it auto hide the bar?

Also, Every time I start-up, and when i first installed, there was an error download the albumart1.6 dll, Any way to fix it?
Reply
:iconcoroners:
coroners Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
I think the albumart dll is included in the download. Select it using the dialog or put it in the modules folder found in the litestep installation folder. As for the auto hide there probably is a way to make it auto hide but I don't have time to add that feature. I think it would have been easier if the entire theme was built a bit diffrent.

Really glad you like it anyway! Just ask if you got some more questions or feedback! PEACE

FionnT Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2012
Yeah, I realised what the problem with the .DLL was, It was named AlbumArt1.6.dll , whereas Litestep was looking for albumart.1.6.dll.

Guess it was case sensitive.

Also, I've decided to try and add in an Auto-hide feature myself, just to see if I can, That alright with you?

coroners Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2012
Glad you figured it out. Have not had any problems with case sensitivity myself so that's good to know. Of course you should add Auto-hide. If you could share your success I would be glad! =)
