Thanks for this release.
The new splash screens and power switch daemon are really great.
I have some troubles with Gmenu2x.
From what i see, there's two included (builted-in) themes in the release : Default and 2010-12-14
The 2010-12-14 is a five row theme.
When you switch from one theme to another that doesn't have the same layout (number of lines, columns, topbar height and bottombar height...), the screen is not updated causing some graphical glitches (can be fixed by rebooting or at least launching any application or terminal)
Before rebooting (only 4 columns can be seen):
After rebooting (all columns are visible) :
Maybe you could force a screen refresh after switching between skins ?
As you can see on previous screenshot, there's also some glitches caused by the bigger font (text overlapping).
This can't be fixed since there's no way to currently rename links or section name (i manage to only edit link that were added by myself but failed when trying to rename sound mixed into sound or applications into apps for example).
I think the best should be to remove 2010-12-14 skin as it's unusable in its current state.
There's some other text overlapping (even in default 3x3 skin) as you can see in first screenshot.
The fix could be :
- Revert to a narrow font
- Change a bit the layout (difficult for the first screenshot but could help on Gmenu2x settings screen were some texts overlaps on foreign translation)
- Change the text for a smaller one
- Make the text scrollable or autocut (with...)
On the terminal screen, you could add a space to force the first line of text to be cut between test and their :
Currently, the main issue is that we can't edit any link that belongs to the builted-in gmenu2x :
- tried to delete terminal for example and it's recreated at next reboot
- tried to delete/rename section : impossible (except emulators but it's recreated at next reboot)
- tried to rename link : impossible except for the one you created yourself
Since you can't edit those, it's also useless to have translations as most strings remains in english.
Could you also display current volume and current brightness in bottom bar (or at least make it visible in gmenu2x settings screen)
I was also asking myself if the scripts (poweroff, reboot and suspend) should not use the default gmenu2x clock (192) and not the default dingoo clock (336).
Is it eventually possible to detect if the dingoo is plugged and change the battery icon to a charging one ?
Sorry for asking so much questions and thanks in advance for your answers.
Nice work guys !
