To avoid install OOo/X11 (I suppose is not a 5 min work) why not post yours soffice.cfg as .tar.gz file like ooo_theme_mini.tar.gz?


Because I don't have time right now and that way I would impose my preferred set of icons on you (which will evolve anyway). What I'll try to tackle if I have time is to modify the KDE script in order to install directly in NeoOfficeJ. Shouldn't be hard. However, it won't be before next week so if anybody has time to do it right now, go ahead.

That way, we may be able to experiment easily with different sets of icons while waiting for a better (read integrated) solution.

You should also note that if you do this replacement, you lose the ability to assign different icons to buttons via Customize. We'll need a way to do that either by correcting that bug or creating more assignments through this system.

Lga.

Okay, so what does 'soffice.cfg' look like inside? Is it the same as the contents of ooo_theme_mini.tar.gz ? Cheers,

It was easy to modify the script to generate icon set for NeoJ-alpha.
I only changed the destination directory, the background color, and a ls option (not bsd).

So if you want to play and test icons sets available:
- go to the site pointed early in the original thread : http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=7131
- download the archive with the script and icon sets.
- unzip the archive
- download the modified two scripts from here: http://coderie.ac-mb.info/trucs/icon_scripts.zip
- unzip and replace original script
- edit the config.tcl file to select the icon set you wish to use.
- run the "tclsh genbar.tcl" command from a terminal in the same directory.

Message in the terminal show the name of backed-up config dir to revert to original setting.

The script default to use 22x22 icons, std are 16x16.
BTW, the GTK icon set previously mentioned looked fuzzy because they are 22x22px icons displayed at 16x16.

Anyway, upcoming native menus do NOT display icons.

Thanks! Sorry for not digging into this myself. I have some real-world community responsibilities that eat much of my spare time, so I have trouble getting into the technicals.

I also get the following result:
hemeDir: Aqua/22x22/
icon-size = (22,22)
num icons: 171
OpenOffice config directory:
$HOME/Library/NeoOfficeJ-1.1/user/config/soffice.cfg/
Backing up config dir (soffice.cfg) to:
$HOME/Library/NeoOfficeJ-1.1/user/config/soffice.cfg.bak0/
couldn't execute "convert": no such file or directory
while executing
"exec convert -size $len$x$cy xc:$bg $out1"
(file "genbar.tcl" line 555)

Any thoughts?

No, ooo_theme....'s contents are things that go inside that directory, some of which (imagelist.xml) replace existing things, while most of the items "replace" things that are wrapped up in the compiled OOo/NeoJ and don't actually appear in the directory.

Basically, a bunch of custom user toolbar and menu config files get installed there.... And custom icon sets.

Yes. As the README (!) says:
Code:
Requirements:
 -------------
 1. convert, composite (imagemagick.org)
 2. TCL (8.x)

You should install this package to be able to use this icon script.

Eric:

You need to change to the directory then run the script.

Giving a file path isn't equivalent, since the script itself makes relative_to_current_directory file references, that is, won't work otherwise.

And now everything works and the script finishes and I start NeoOffice/J and all of the icons are black Sad. Please tell me where I fumbled this one (again).

I have created a set almost complete, some icons are missing, with the Ximian stock icons collection.

I will try to make more Mac OS with a melt of different OpenSource icons from Ximian stock icons, Gnome Crystal, and Nuvola and a few others ...

In this archive there are all the Ximian stock icons for OOo 1.1 ready to integrate as this in the source code instead of the already existing icons.

Try with this version of ImageMagick, that should work after.

Thanks! Now why did I go through the trouble of getting and installing 6.1.0?

Ciao,
