nice look !
except the "Shortcuts" icon
also, customizing some common applets like GMenu or logout would be nice, evne if you personnaly don't use it

Salut fabounet,
Ok..here is a revision of the Chrome theme.
I have included several other launchers including logoff with the proper dbus command to launch the ubuntu9.04 UI for shutdown as well as changing icons for shortucts.

It works well . But, just 4 details :

  • The dock isn't centered. "Out of box", the dock is out of my screen (and I haven't a small resolution (1680*1050)) (see the screenshot)
  • I doesn't have Xchat
  • I have a mistake with the icon of AlsaMixer (see the screenshot) => it is transparent
  • Maybe it would be better with 3 new icons : cairo-dock , gedit and totem (except if you are on KDE environment). But it's not very important...

Great work !

There is a OGG file in your icon's directory

Salut mattbe,
Sorry about the ogg file... I wondered where that went lol I is a piece by one of the guys I know from compiz who just started composing
ok here is the dock without the ogg file

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/132551/My_cairo-dock_themes/Chrome.tar.gz

I will have to start making the docks on a singel monitor... I have the habit of using dual monitors when I create these and I know most people dont have dual monitors.. even if they did I generally create these on the primary monitor to the left so sorry all for that I can update that and post it on this same post as another version.

thanks.
as far as the extra icons or oned you dont use or need, there is also a "template.svg" in the icons folder for applying any icon you want to use for whichever application you need
Also for that alsa mixer icon... just right click the icon to configure it,, the default_alsa.svg is in both the main folder and the icons folder of the theme.. I have constantly had issues with getting this to show up on all of my themes and still have not figured out what I am doing wrong

Yes, it's nice ! centered and so on
Also, there is no indicator for Drop Indicator... But it's the same problem that the icon of AlsaMixer... Fabounet could maybe resolve that...

looks very nice
I don't know if you already did it but you may add (it's totally optionnal)
a drop indicator
ok/cancel buttons
icons for common applets even if you don't use them in your theme

and about behaviour (dock centered, etc) don't worry I update the conf file with a script that standardize its behaviour to a default one.

Salut mattbe and fabounet,

Ok here is an updated revision of the theme with dropindicator and open/close buttons,

http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/132551/My_cairo-dock_themes/Chrome.tar.gz

I will create more icons... although I do have a template icon I generally include into the icons folder... in this one there is two of them,,one to have the icons closer to the dock itself and one to raise the icons just above the dock

let me know

tested yesterday, very nice looking !

1 remark : the animation on click is the same as on mouse over, so you're not sure whether you have clicked or not
also, the firefox icon does not steal the application (class mismatch I think, you should drag'n'drop firefox in the dock again)
