Seeking some help making a widget layout
« on: March 16, 2011, 20:37:30 »
Hi all.

If anyone is feeling helpful, i'd really appreciate it if someone could whip this up into a working widget layout for me, please?



The BG image can be found here, or attached to this post.

I can gladly do for you. But I would prefer to use graphics without a text. I can even write the text and make it translatable. What happened to the layout widescreen?

No text version attached.
Thanks :)

Widebar still refuses to fit correctly, even though the BG image is the correct size of 1920.

Awesome! Thanks :)

I must have the skin path wrong, as the bg.png isn't showing:
/.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts/skins/wing_skin/bg.png

I think it needs to be

.config/gmusicbrowser/layouts/gmb-art_skins/wing_skin/

It is that path, and I can get it to display but it is not tall enough meaning that everything is scrunched and changing the size in both font and physical does not help it

Shows an image of what I mean, I am not getting the full display at all

I tried changing

Default = Window(size=457x29)

to

Default = Window(size=457x49)

and it does not correct it

Can you change the widget size and the font size in the plugin?

Yes to both but it makes no difference

When changing the widget size it expands it but everything still looks the same as the image I showed you

Edit - Changing the font from my default of 12 to 9 did solve the problem, although for me on my large screen, this is very very small.

Changing the path solved the display issue. Thanks to both of you :)

But yes: It's designed to be a very compact skin.

You should install the DEB package. This eliminates e.g. the problems with paths.

Code: [Select]
$ git clone [email protected]:aboettger/gmusicbrowser-layouts.git
$ cd gmusicbrowser-layouts
$ debuild -i -I -us -uc
$ sudo dpkg -i ../gmusicbrowser-art_[VERSION]_all.deb
