I have been playing with tuxbar, as well as a few other OSX-like menubars that use karamba/superkaramba, and all of them do the exact same thing that is really annoying me. There is this huge transparent section above the menubar that obscures any application that enters that area. You can see a screenshot of what I am talking about at http://www.bonaplus.com/~thb/images/screen.jpg

Basically, I want to have the focused window go on top of that transparent area, and then have the menubar come to the top when it is focused. I am pretty new to karamba/superkaramba, and for all I know this is not possible, but I find it kind of hard to believe that all the people using this program are just living with it like that. I am pretty sure I am overlooking something, but STFW and RTFM haven't turned anything that can help me.

hi!

well i lived with that too, until i was told to recompile superkaramba with following changes:

in the superkaramba-sourcetree edit
src/karamba.cpp line 2246

KWin::setType(winId(), NET::Normal);

to

//KWin::setType(winId(), NET::Normal);
(just uncomment it, right)

recompile
reinstall

and you've got the themes BEHIND the windows...

cheers!

This is great, I like this much more being dynamic (adding your own icons) and with the date/time. I'm just wondering if theres either a way to fix the problem with scrolling large images to overlap the time/date.. or if your going to be fixing this anytime soon or anything?

Doesn't work though...
Everything is transparent except the 1 and 2 icons
representing my virtual desktops =(
I've tried pointing the tuxbar.py script
to the absolute path of the images,
without any luck... Any help would be
appreciated

And yes, seems that this isn't
the only theme I have problems with

I am also having the same problems. It's strange because I was able to run the old tux bar just fine. Also, if anyone can send me a sample code on how to add more programs to the bar that would be great. Thanks in advance.

Hi, the problem with your tux bar is not simply the position the bar is place by the default config. If moved, at least on my machine, the bottom half of the bar is still missing. This is the error messagae that I am getting from KDE:
"Major opcode: \x0e
WARNING: KDE detected X Error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)". This happens whenever I try to reload the config. Thinking that the problem could possibly be due to the BOTTOMBAR=true option I set it to false. That did not fix the problem with the lower half of the bar being cut off and it presented another problem. With BOTTOMBAR=false if I reload the config the theme disapears completely. Karamba is still running and the theme is loaded but is not visible. Please help.

Ok, figured out what the problem was regarding the bar being cut off, the default Hight setting was off a little, by default it was set at 100 I set it to 150 and now the bar is not cut in half anymore.

right click on the bar and edit the theme and comment or delete these rows:

IMAGE X=23 Y=69 PATH="pics/3.png"
CLICKAREA X=23 Y=69 W=16 H=16 ONCLICK="dcop kwin KWinInterface setCurrentDesktop 3"

IMAGE X=1 Y=85 PATH="pics/4.png"
CLICKAREA X=1 Y=85 W=16 H=16 ONCLICK="dcop kwin KWinInterface setCurrentDesktop 4"

It will remain 2 buttons (3) and (4) without any functionality.

I never see something that look as professionnal as that on linux!

The only problem is that is not a new idea but a MacOS X one. :o(

What's the problem? A good idea will be replicated and imprved as long as it will seem a good idea!

During the story a lot of artist would have been inspired from others works!
