I'm looking through the posts under 'Themes, Icons and Backgrounds' and am surprised to find a severe lack of eyecandy.

Is no-one doing themes anymore?

I had tons of themes and ZStyle etc to make my 5500 look the bees knees, but they don't work with my C860 (with Cacko QT 1.21A)

Anyone know where I can find the goods? zaurusthemes seems fossilised and for the 5x00 machines, the ZUG theme downloads seem the same, even a bundle of themes ported to the C series does sweet nothings on my Z.

Help! Qtopia is becoming bland! I need eyecandy!!!

mmh, the underwhelming response says it all, I'm the only person on earth who wants more eye candy...

mmh.. suppose I'll have to try and port KDE's plastik theme then....

Yes!Yes! biggrin.gif

I think I saw a thread somewhere on how to replace icons etc. Not quite a Theme, but maybe a start?

Where did you get them? I tried pdaXrom but the stock screens were a real turn-off.

WOW, that looks great. Strange that there are not a lot of themes for the Sharp-based ROM's.

Hmm? dunno.. there was a thread somewhere sometime :->

I grabbed a bunch of 640x480 images from here and there (digital blashpemy?)
and I use holidayflo640 (fluorescence6 is the same in blue?)

The one in the upper left is gant -- I also went and found the full gant icon set (it's huge).

I should have clarified it a bit but I was referring to QT ROMs and the Cacko QT ROM in particular. The pack of old themes DO work but symlinks need to be make from the pics directory where they are stored to pics144.

As for more eyecandy, you guys are just gonna have chew your lips and be patient, but I'm working on it wink.gif

I'd be willing to work with someone to build a website to store Zaurus themes. Something like themes.freshmeat.net, except mainly built for Zaurus users.

I've done websites for more than long enough, so I'd mainly need someone to design the look of the site and someone to organize and gather all the themes to start the site off. I can do all the coding.

Myself et al will be publishing themes etc on a site in the next few weeks (or so), the URL will be made public then. One contributor, who is not a forum person, has done some very original stuff, mainly abstracts and rasta stuff and I'll be making that available too.

I've got some working QT themes right now, but I cannot publish them just yet but all will be revealed in the fullness of time biggrin.gif

If someone can point me in the right direction to generate ipks, that would be nice and I may need a 6000 user to test stuff at some point, we can't leave our brick loving friends out laugh.gif

Padishah_emperor, how are the themes going?
padishah_emperor
Well, the website is still going on slowly, I'm about to take on a large amount of work so the time I have will drop for a couple of months. The QT titlebar theme I was working on came to a halt, when I destroyed my installation, requiring a reflash, but I went over to pdaXrom and I doubt I'll be doing anything more with Qtopia for a while.

have you guys not seen the zaurusthemes.com site? its a simple site for downloading and uploading themes, backgrounds, icon sets, etc.

I can't remember the name of the guy who put it together originally, but I am now maintaining the site. I have yet to do anything to change it because my focus has been on the zug lately. But I'm sure with a little work, it could be a great repository for this stuff.

any thoughts?
padishah_emperor
Yes, I've a thought biggrin.gif

Why not merge it into the ZUG site, so it's all under one roof. I sort of gave up on that site because it seemed like there was little activity, haven't checked it out in a while though.

has anyone tried porting the opie "appearance" app to the sharp rom? would this be possible? that thing was amazing for the 5500 (i never tried OZ on my c750 or c1000). anyway, i would love to see that app on the sharp rom, it provides a lot of personalization.
