Thanks, I hope Pic2Icon will convert them, so that they can be used and don't luck like crap after converting them.... Well we'll see

How can I extract those icons from that .ip file?

I'd like to know this as well.

Stuffit Deluxe extracted the .ip file, but it gave me two more files that stumped me. The one that contains the icons is an .icl file.

Help!

Good point! I don't understand why people show cool icons without a download link. I know that there should be a permission to do so, but hey that shouldn't be such a big problem I guess.

It's not so amusing to see something cool which you can get

When I do it it is because I do not have permission to redistribute them or convert them to another format aside from personal use. Pic2icon has some fallacies. They will create nice OS X icons from 128 pixel .png files but do not do well with XP icons to OS X. Luckily, I have access to an x86 box where I can convert the .ico files to .png. The .icl file is the entire batch locked inside of a windows icon library file.

In some cases the .ip file can be renamed to .zip and it will extract the windows icons. It depends on the author allowing for this setting.

digitaljames, could you post a link to the wallpaper as well? Thanks!

This is not the GUI request thread, it is the "show your desktop" thread. The point is to simply show what your desktop looks like. Whether someone can release it or not is totally irrelevant.

There is obviously some way to have anything, its how easy it is that you are worried about. You could always just make them yourself.

I couldn't find xwinder nor barmaid. I'm basically just wondering how you got rid of the menu bar at the top of the window

Thanks in advance.

Originally posted by bluevertical:

By editing this:

dates[position] = new Text();
dates[position].hOffset = (32-j)*space;
dates[position].vOffset = 18;
dates[position].data = inserted;
dates[position].size = 7;
dates[position].font = "Futura";
dates[position].style = "medium";
dates[position].alignment = "center";
dates[position].color = "#FFFFFF";

From within the .kon file of the widget.

Show Package Contents (On the actual widget within the widget folder)> Contents> and open the .kon with TextEdit to make your changes.




OOps, I see DigitalJames already replied, Oh well. Remember, when editing a .kon file be sure to check for all instances of what you want to edit.
