A quick updates on the latest happenings around the Amahi Linux Home Server before talking about themes. We fixed one issue yesterday where some apps need to be reinstalled, otherwise they would crash.
We still have the other issue where sometimes apps status gets out of step, and one app needs
to be installed, then uninstalled and installed again, in order for it to be clickable and running. Working on this and the update to the photosorter app.
The photosorter is meant to show an app that includes a flash object in it that plays in the user browser.
The reports we have it that it always gets stuck at 80% or some other percentage number.
However, I wanted to talk about themes. One things that keeps on coming up is being able to configure the HDA
dashboard environment to look differently. My graphics and CSS skills are less than optimal, to put it nicely 😉
We have one theme that was developed partially, called Agedashi, and designed by our friend Alvin Lai. Some functionality is there to make interfaces themable, but it was never finished to the point that was working. Only mockups were developed (click on the image for the full screenshot).
I was wondering if someone is into CSS, HTML and graphics and would be interested in this
The current theme is (very imaginatively!) called ‘main’. There is a theme directory in the sourceforge svn repo,
with one theme directory called ‘slick’.
This is not Agedashi, however, it could be used as a stepping stone to make “slick” the new life of Agedashi
Basically all is needed is CSS and some graphics mojo!
