big thanks goes to `mrrste for the DD
related journal [link]


// Don't read me
Use only the theme popup options to change the appearance, if you gonna edit the config files manually, you're gonna nuke the whole theme, believe me.

To unhide icons in the tray use mouse middle click, to scroll use your mouse wheel.

Switched from MZ to Lua scripting
this means much more options (font, fontsize, etc.).

Package contains the older version of the Calibri font (much better than the Vista variant)

Digital Clock Font is "Univers LT" [link]
Wallpaper is from InterfaceLift [link]

Theme Popup
shift+leftmouseclick or shift+rightmouseclick

If you've a problem with some modules or the installation
try to install the VC++ packages [link] [link]

Alright, everything's perfect. The theme's awesome. But there's one problem and I'm not even sure if it has to do with this specific theme or the shell in general. I have so many programs installed that my Program Files list goes off the screen. I'm using the highest resolution possible for my graphics card.

normally there is an option in your litestep settings, think something about popup break
OR ;) you can use your mousewheel to scroll through the menulist

Based on Solaris kernel with Deban linux using the gnome desktop so you maybe familiar with Ubuntu graphics. Probably best to post on this page to offer your contributions and ask for direction?

Thanks and good luck

The preview sure looks great but that's far from enough. The readme suffered lack of information and installation.
I installed LiteStep (which by the way is an extremely odd program) and then downloaded your skin,
and although the program regognizes your theme-file, all it does is opening it up in notepad.
From what I can see, there's only a config file to the litestep program, and no images/fonts whatsoever in your theme.
Can also add a note that lifestep itself somehow put extra startup shortcuts for programs that start in Windows,
so all my startup programs popped up when I started my computer. Also had a lot of problem to initiate the default lifestep theme.
Poor program, poor theme. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I'm sorry.

Might also note that I'm an advanced computer user, so don't mistake me for being a newbie.

well I'm not a developer and personally love LS, its not for everyone
and btw its not a program, but rather a shell replacement, its fully customizable, but you need to put a lot of work in the configuration

and I don't arrogate to rate your comment or your computer skills, but to conclude from your comment, it seems you do that, maybe you should rewrite, recode and develop your own "Litestep" and create your own skins

have a nice day
