Subject description: Preview GTK & JWM theme at once, Create profiles, Load saved Profile
 

Hi,

I have been thinking for a long time that in puppy, we use 2 different apps to change theme. Well, now you don't have to. I found gtk-theme-switcher2 and compiled it. Then creat GUI and script to:

1. Apply instant/preview GTK and JWM theme at once
2. Create and save a profile
3. Load Saved profile

How cool is that ?

PS: You may replace JWM theme switcher and gtk theme chooser(/usr/bin/gtk-chtheme) with only this one app - if you use only JWM

Enjoy
Updated to v 1.2-2 - Bugfix , now really compatible with pwidgets (only if availabel) users - UNINSTALL PREVIOUS VERSION FIRST!
Updated to v 1.2 Deals with GTK & JWM themes plus Wallpaper and desktop icons - was pet up in 4.3 pre-beta, so it's having std database
Updated to v 1.1 - Remove function added

Ziggy bling master,

Very Happy to you too. You tried it? How's it? Don't know why but I feel happy especially after creating this app, I think puppy really needs to simplified the app duplication or scattered apps. More of app like this is good (in 421 we have puppy setup and pcp! Even the control panel is duplicated)

Anyway, that's my opinion, my goal is always to make new users comfortable in experiencing puppy without having to touch terminal.

Thanks for informing me of this (trio kindly sent me a message that it it was ready) Cool

I suddenly realised that 'Desktop themes' and 'Program themes' are what are being changed in both the original and this program and maybe a name change to that effect would be beneficial and simplify in both the original and this new format?

Good to see your coding skills develop. Cool

@Lobster

Yes, please simplify puppy..more new user friendly

@gposil

Yes, please. PetStore is also one way to make life easier for new users. we should be thinking about putting these alien pets repos in default seamonkey's bookmarks

looks very nice and simple, will test it soon.

only one point to mention:
using this app (as a replacement) is very nice but only if you have jwm as one and only wm. if you do have more than one wm (e.g. 4.21) than the mixing of general (gtk-theme) and special (jwm-theme) settings might be more confusing than simplifying.

Yup, you're right, I meant it to be for the new 4.3 and older than 4.2x , which has only JWM. That's why I stated, you may want to replace those two with this only (means: please think before you act Laughing )

But, I may look for a way for an Icewm version

Thank you Aragon

edit: for gtk theme swither only, type in terminal:
Code:
/usr/bin/gtk-theme-switch2
