DESCRIPTION



Wallpaper by lassekongo83 (thx its awesome)
Launchy Skin
Adwaita Cursor
Windows 7 Skin (Bello by kiko-knows, thank you for that man. It is just beautiful)


Additional Programs (for your full Fedobar experience)

Switcher
Start Killer
Launchy
Taskbar Hider
NirCmd (x64)


If you want my Switcher config, grab it HERE. The Shortcut in my config is actually Alt+X and Fedobar uses a script with NirCmd (x64) to enable Switcher's switch animation. It works great! Thanks again to RidKurn!


Before using the taskbar hider, try to put the Windows taskbar at the top of the screen and enable small icons in the preferences.


Fedobar should work properly with several res.




I hope you like it! Have fun!

okay forget what I wrote before:

DOWNLOAD THE SKIN AGAIN I MADE AN UPDATE. THEN

edit this


[Bar]
...
H=27

to your desired height

AND this

[BarEdgeLeft]
...
Y=27r

to the same value plus the "r"

have fun :)

values lower than 20 look odd because of the font size plus the icons are too big and disappear at the top of the screen :/ But I think am too lazy to make everything relative to everything (means that the font size decreases when you decrease the actual bar. I dont know whether this works at all)

okay let's be honest, there are still some improvements necessary:

I wanted to make the tray/settings/shutdown buttons a little bit nicer, they definately halfhearted at the moment.
The battery display isn't that authentic, too because - as you can see in the video - there is only 1 bar left even though my battery is 41%.
these and some other little design improvements are planned for the future. i am looking forward on your feedback :)

I apologize for the german-english mishmash. I should definately switch to an english version of Windows 7 :)
