Apologies if the answers to these questions are buried in the forum somewhere but I couldn't find them.

1. I'd like to change the size of the scroll bars used under PdaXrom. Is this possible? I had a little nose around to see if I could find any config files with this in but alas I failed.

2. Going one stage further is it possible to skin the screen widgets under PdaXrom, to resemble Cacko 1.22 for example? I realise that this might not be to everyone's taste but if you could give me some pointers I could post the results up to the forum. Would I need to change window managers to do this?

If this sort of stuff is held in a set of man pages/info/FAQ list somewhere then a link would be great.

3. Slightly more ambitious but how hard would it be to edit the source code to abiword to reduce the size of the file/open dialogue so that it fits completely on to the screen? Surely it's only a simple change (famous last words....) as the contents of the dialogue look like they would fit within 640x480. I'm a Java developer but it looks like I'd better learn C++ if I want to contribute to Zaurus software. tongue.gif

Cheers,

There is some info on the Wiki http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Pdaxrom_Environment It only covers using ROX instead of Matchbox. The openbox themes can also be easily changed too see http://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=Configuring_Openbox
For more control, try fvwm & xfce as window managers.
Cheers,
Jerry
