Still working on something

Posted by NothanyTPM - June 30th, 2022


As some of you may know, I have a second PC running Arch Linux that I do most of my side stuff while I draw on my laptop. This second PC has IceWM installed which to make it quick for people who don't know/care about this: it's the way your Linux can look. There's plenty out there like KDE, Gnome, LXQT, and so on. IceWM is a good option for older computers because it's not running like 30 programs in the background, with the trade-off being that you need to manually configure all the programs you want it to run.


Anyways while I was configuring IceWM to do the things I wanted, I looked into the themes folder and found that making themes is as easy as making an image and sticking it into the right folder with the right name.


I can draw right? Why don't I just make my own little theme for IceWM!

Well turns-out it takes a little longer to do than I thought, but I thought I'd let out a small sneak-peek of the project for fun.

Firstly, the button for the "Start" menu which includes a redesigned IceWM logo.

The Taskbar with the Minimized, Inactive, and Active buttons respectively

And finally the assets for the LED clock in IceWM


Progress:

Taskbar (80% finished) [only missing a few icons and some testing]

Window Borders (0%)

Custom Wallpapers (1%) [I have the ideas, but nothing is drawn yet]


Hope you've enjoyed this little sneak-peek, see you next update!
