How To Configure Window Decoration?
« on: October 08, 2006, 10:38:42 am »

I'm using pdaXrom 1.1.0beta3 with Matchbox and Rox,
How can I chane the look of window title bars and similar decoration stuff?
The "Look and Feel" app does not allow to change these settings.

SL-C3200 with weeXpc, based on pdaXrom 1.1.0beta3
HP 200LX with MS-DOS 5.0

Since the default configuration uses matchbox and openbox, the themes should be in /usr/share/themes
To change the theme, as far as I know, you have to do it manually by editing rc.xml. That file can be found in /etc/xdg/openbox. Copy everything inside this directory to /home/root/.config/openbox (note that /home/root is your home directory).
Open rc.xml, find the <theme> <name> tag and change the theme name into the one that you want (again, you can find the theme in /usr/share/themes). However, I'm using r121 and not really sure if this works for the other version as well. Good luck

Most usable: Cacko, most fun: pdaXrom

Just a user though ;)
