The first package on the list of plugins to download fails to initialize. Is the repo down?

Thanks for introducing me to LiteStep, but why is the bar so big? Also, is there any way to prevent windows from going underneath it? thanks.

:iconaaron-a-arts:
Aaron-A-Arts Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2011  Student Digital Artist
jdesk has margins set that should prevent the window from occupying that space.. are you talking about dragging windows under it?

the bar is just a style preference. you can edit it pretty easily if you're handy with a graphics editor, and can read plain english =D i'm not being a smart ass i'm serious, the config is plain english

ahaha, yah it really messed my pc up by making it to where the whole interface went black and explorer wasn't working. Had to restore my PC, I don't think I wanna even try to do it again. If you could help me to get the actual appows theme set up though I would greatly appreciate it. I'm on Windows Vista, I have Skype and Team Viewer if you agree to help!

well there are endless tutorials already on the web. the catch to windows is patching the system files that control the themes. uxtheme patcher is a good search term. google that and you should quickly find everything you need. just read, don't rush into it. get familiar with how it works then do it

:iconvoguisharts:
VoguishArts Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Student Filmographer
I've read them over and over, patch, then put the themes in the themes folder, then apply. I can do that, just not replace the system files, last time I did that it did what I had explained above about the whole interface going black.

I'm too busy to look through 5 pages of comments to see if you had any good WinXP suggestions but mine is you could disable the tray icons if they are reported not working.

Just use a simple lscore conditional expression:
IF NOT WinXP
[place tray icons]
ENDIF

Or if you're using the LS 0.25.0 alpha build you can use
IF WinVista OR Win7
[place tray icons]
ENDIF

Anyway i like your work.

you can use add remove programs just like any other application. what probably gives users the hardest time is that if litestep gives you errors and the default theme loads wrong you might end up with an empty desktop. so what do you do? ctrl, alt, delete! from task manager you can launch any application with file>run>browse

Aaron-A-Arts Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
lolz no! you can use the task manager to "run" any thing. including the start menu shortcuts that litestep creates that will return your shell to windows.

HelpTechCona Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011
But you said I would have to use task manager, why wouldn't I be able to use my start menu and system tray or my task bar all together ?

:iconaaron-a-arts:
Aaron-A-Arts Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011  Student Digital Artist
litestep replaces the windows shell (the taskbar/startmenu). it's an alternative shell. when you use litestep it configures your system to show only the litestep shell and to hide the default windows shell, thus if litestep has issues loading a theme you might not see anything on your desktop, at all. this kind of thing can really scare newbies.

if you uninstall litestep properly using the uninstaller found in the litestep directory (or add/remove programs) then it will reset windows as shell ;)

:iconaaron-a-arts:
Aaron-A-Arts Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2010  Student Digital Artist
you can download jdesk here [link]
copy the jdesk dll into your litestep modules folder. (manual install)

this might be useful [link]

theme.rc located inside the theme folder controls the theme settings. open it and find this line
!execute ["C:\LiteStep\profiles\Aaron\themes\A-Step\network.lnk"]
you'll need to edit that so that it points to the location of the lnk on your system.

hope that helps!

Really clean theme. Straight forward and works for what it is. Network Icon/Battery/Trash don't work on my win7 box, but that's not a big deal.

The only complaint I have is on a multi-monitor setup this doesn't really work without redoing the start menu, I just hacked it to slide from the top instead of from the left (where it's visible 100% of the time on my left monitor)

Otherwise, nice and clean and pretty usable with a little customization.
