Heavyish Metal

Heavyish Metal

Submitted By Andy Allcorn (bob_the_gorilla)


For those who love brushed metal. If you're not a believer, look away now...

Based heavily on an idea tedger posted in a screenshot on the forums, but with a few tweaks to make it fit more with my desktop. I decided to share - hope you have no objections tedger :)

Online / offline indicators are green and red text respectively, typing indicator is white text. Idle and away are shades of grey, as you can see!

Paired combination.

Very nice, very simple, very sleek. I give it a 2. I mean 10! :-)

11, surely? ;) I still use this myself, which is quite unusual as I love to tinker with things.

Thanks! Clean and effective.

I like it! I have spent a long time looking for a buddy list layout, and I like this one best!

hm how do i get this to work i selected the list layout and the colour layout but it looks like a black bar here, isn't it compatible with the new 0.8 beta? Or did i just forget to adjust something?

You need to set it to use the included image (metal.png) as a background. :)

# by bob_the_gorilla on 03/11/05 at 06:31:37

Sorry, it's called BackgroundImage.png. Your issue with the beta is probably to do with your window style - background images don't work with any of the "bubbles" styles, and contact list themes are no longer allowed to choose the window style - you'll have to set it manually to borderless window or normal window.

Clean and simple. Perfect. A no brainer for the minimalist.

The backround doesn't seem to be working. :( I am running 0.89.1, and the window style is a regular window.

I don't see the background image.

The install version comes with no image, while the download version has it: "Backgroundimage.png".

Well, I pilfered Tedger's idea, so I guess that's pretty obvious...
