Description:

Created by Fabrizio Ciacchi (virusbye@inwind.it - www.virusbye.it):
This is a good theme for superkaramba that implements a lot of other scripts.
Is possible to use the MacOsxBar, the TuxBar and the KrollerBar.
Into the Kroller there is the system logger (cpu, mem, net, uptime, ip), the partition info, the mail checker (that display that there is new mail in our account), the samba watcher (that display if someone is reading in our samba directory) and the Liquid Weather.

Also, the icons used are the famous Tux'n'Tosh based on the Crystal Icon.

By default is launching the MacOsxBar and the Kroller, but is
possible to use also the TuxBar.

Optimized for 1024x768

Please post your impression!!! :)

Thats the macOSX Bar I was looking for. It's realy good. Now my mac-theme is completted. TOgether with BrushedMetal from Baghira it's almost better than the look of a real Mac.
The only thing which isn't working i the length of the topbar. It's too small for my resolution. I also tried to set the length manually with the script. But it didn't worked. But no matter.. its not important.

Hi there,

i really like the new osXbar. But of some reason it always shows me the whole path of the programs when i move the cursor over the icons.

using the addTaskAlias didn't solve the prob.

is there any way to change displaying the path in displaying the program name only??

Very nice!! impressed with all the updates. But I have a problem with the weather thing. It only says "City of" and then nothing else comes up. I downloaded and installed Liquid Weather from the link provided but still doesnt work. Maybe im doing something wrong?

You have to go in and edit the weather module. However if memory serves correctly it wont work because the site where it pulls info from is no longer online.

The theme installs correctly and appears to run as it should, however it's short the icons. I've copied the info I get from running superkaramba from the CLI.

I had an older version that worked fine from a previous install, found this release and tried it. The errors keep looping, much too long to list them all. On the screen I get the black outline of the toolbar. The right an left hand "margins" if you will, expand as if the images are enlarging as they should. The programs launch as they should if you click on whatever it is beneath the cursor, I'm only missing images.

Running Debian 3.0.r1 w/ KDE 3.1.3

Please advise.

This is just what I've been looking for. I've used ObjectBar on my Windows PC for a long time and it's been hard to get along without it on Linux, untill now. Much Thanks!

I am having made the bar at the top 1400x40, and have revwriten the config file to respond on clicks from the right places. But what I can't figure out is how to enlarge the taskbar.. anyone have a clue? I think its in the macosx2bar.py, but since my experince with python is rather limited I haven't figured it out yet.

Hi,
I've used many Karamba "bars" OSX, KROLLER... but none of these have a "autohide" feature.

In this way we can have a "on-top" bar that is visible only when the mouse-pointer is over it.

Bye

I just installed cross over, and have Access running under Lin. I wanted to add an icon to my kroller theme, but I can't get it to work because of the complex, multi part command:

/opt/cxoffice/bin/wine --workdir "" "C://Program Files//Microsoft Office//Office//MSACCESS.EXE"

I tried different type of quotes, but that didn't help. Any suggestions anyone?

Actually, all you have to do is put the complex command in one bash script and call that bash script in the theme's config file. At leasrt that works for me with osXBar...

I'm having trouble resizing the topbar of this theme to 1280. Would someone be able to give me a hand with this.

This is probably one of the best themes I have seen to date. Keep up the great work!

Everything is fine except for the weather forecast on the right. It's cut off halfway, so I don't see my cityname and I only have the first two days showing.

I'm developing the new version with the unofficial patch of kroller 0.93:

- All the icons now are 128x128 (some are smaller).
- I'm thining to remove Tuxbar.
- Now the status bar is alone, but it can stay near the kroller, i have decided to do this for workin on status bar to add icons, and cause i wonna make possible that the kroller is smaller then status.
- Im repaint macosxbar with colour icon and better control for xmms.

Im thinking to develop also an icon-pack based on Tush'n'Tox and Crystal also for kde that gnome.
I with to add a Personalized Background, a GDM Greeter, a SplashScreen for grub and for LiLo, and a Window Decoration.
In final stage i wish to make an ikon-pack for windows :)

Please let me know what you think :)

The bottom bar is great. except two minor things:
1. If the mouse exit from the top, and there are some window in that area, it won't totally go back. The icons will stay raised.

2. the zoom of the icon is not that smooth yet. but almost ok.
