Description Sasi Olin 2018-04-09 17:34:34 UTC
As seen here, during installation windows popping up have ugly titlebars and borders:
There is package that aims to fix this (icewm-theme-yast-installation):
Comment 1 Steffen Winterfeldt 2018-04-10 12:45:07 UTC
Ok, do you have any screenshot *with* this package active?

Adding the package to the installation-images spec is not enough. This will not
cause it to be *used*.

For testing, booting with dud=<url_to_icewm_theme> should get the changed look. Does this work?
Comment 2 Sasi Olin 2018-04-11 22:02:26 UTC
I will take a look, but iirc the way in which this theme in particular is structured should enable it to set up as default automatically (thanks to theme file in /etc/icewm)
Comment 3 Martin Vidner 2018-05-25 14:20:25 UTC
Stasiek, does it work when that package is used as a DUD?

BTW, here is one quick way to run a web server to serve the RPM:
ruby -run -e httpd -- -p 8888 . &

After restarting icewm

Took a look at it, finally, and got two issues out of it:

- Icewm needs a restart (killall -SIGHUP icewm) after yast-installation is loaded (for whatever reason it loads default theme anyway during the first boot)

- It still looks pretty terrible, it seems that icewm-lite is not capable of bitmap theming (?)

Ähm, maybe I need glasses but what is so ugly here ?
Comment 8 Sasi Olin 2018-09-21 12:54:44 UTC
Well, bitmap version is rounded and has a different shadow, ugly in this case is very much relative
Comment 9 Ladislav Slezák 2018-10-04 08:50:09 UTC
So if I understand it correctly the problem is that YaST does not use the theme from the icewm-theme-yast-installation package.
