I've been hunting around for a couple of hours now trying to get the low-down on what image files go where to change what part of the interface on an OZ/Opie install on a 3200. (which is a very nice device BTW smile.gif )

So far what I've learned is that:

most or all of the images can be found in the directory /opt/QtPalmtop/pics/
The main menu icon is go.png
The rest are mostly application pics and easy enough to figure out.

That's it. Pretty sad huh? The problem is that many of the snippets of advice are scattered about amongst four or five web sites, maybe more. It seems as though gpe is different from Opie which is different from Cacko and Qtopia and so on. One set of instructions doesn't seem to match another, or the directory structure on my Z.

What I'd like to see or create is a reasonably good reference so that people don't need to work for this. You just look up your distro and your environment and there you are: The startup screen is named this and goes there. You can change this effect in Opie but not in Qtopia.

How cool would that be? Then it could be put here:

http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=C3000_...omisation_Guide

or in some other useful place where people can find it, and create their own themes without the hunt and peck nightmares that I've been having for the last two hours, when I'm supposed to to be working.

More Hours spent and now I'm talking to my self as well.

Here's the way that some of Opie's files are laid out
/opt
____QtPalmtop
________pics
____________go.png -> go menu icon bottom left of screen
____________launcher
________________opie-desktop.jpg -> desktop background
________________firstuse.jpg -> background during screen calibration
________________sidebar.png -> ???

Now I'm really looking for a method to build themes for Opie, as these guys were back in January
http://www.oesf.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=16795

Documenting it would be enough but to be able to make and ipk would be much better.

Sorry if I'm boring you with such elementary stuff.

I too have the same problem. All I want to do is change my existing wallpaper one one of the ones listed. I have an SL5600 running the Sharp ROM. Som eidea of where to find these files would be a big help. Thx.

Running the Sharp rom you can go here and get all manner of stuff and info.

Even if you do not wish to use these themes, by uzipping them you will see where everything goes on the Sharp ROM. You can even change the background for the clock and stuff. Quite nice.
It's not much help to me I'm running OZ/Opie and that's a different animal.
