Background Image Support

  • Originally, adding a key called X-Background to *.directory files was planned, but now this is cancelled.
  • Instead, I have a better idea to create a theme file for lxlauncher like this:

launcher-background.theme (in ini file format)

#This is a sample theme definition for LXLauncher

[!Theme]
version=1.0
button_size=128  # size of buttons
default_background=default_bg.png
default_bgcolor=#ffffff
default_stretch=true

[Network]
bgcolor=#c0c0c0
background=network.png
stretch=true
origin=-128,-128

[Work/Office]  # using menu path as group name
bgcolor=#ffffff
background=office.png
stretch=false
origin=100, 100

[Play]
bgcolor=#c0c0c0
background=play.png
stretch=true
origin=50%,-128  # x, y position of the image, can be expressed in pixel or % to screen size


The color schema can be defined with a gtkrc file. The backgrounds and appearance of all pages can then be specified in a *.ini file like this.
