  1. Quick THEME howto for SLiM
  2. Some basic information regarding the slim theme format.
  3. Read this file if you plan to make some theme for
  4. the program, and of course have a look at the included themes
  5. GENERAL CONCEPT
  6. A SLiM theme essentially consists of:
  7. - a background image (background.png or background.jpg)
  8. - a panel image (panel.png or panel.jpg)
  9. - input box(es) and messages and their placement
  10. and properties (slim.theme)
  11. The panel and background images can be a PNG or JPEG file.
  12. The panel is blended into the background image,
  13. taking care of alpha transparency.
  14. SUPPORTED FORMATS
  15. - fonts: use the xft font specs, ie: Verdana:size=16:bold
  16. - colors: use html hex format, ie #0066CC
  17. - positions: can be either absolute in pixels, ie 350
  18. or relative to the container, ie 50% is in the middle
  19. of the screen.

  73. SHADOWS
  74. The 'msg', 'input', 'welcome', 'session' and 'username' sections
  75. support shadows; three values can be configured:
  76. - color: the shadow color
  77. - x offset: the offset in x direction, relative to the normal text
  78. - y offset: the offset in y direction, relative to the normal text
  79. So to add a text shadow to the welcome message, add the following
  80. to slim.conf:
  81. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  82. welcome_shadow_xoffset -2
  83. welcome_shadow_yoffset 2
  84. welcome_shadow_color #ff0000
  85. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  86. The other keys are analogue:
  87. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  88. # for username and password label
  89. username_shadow_xoffset 2
  90. username_shadow_yoffset -2
  91. username_shadow_color #ff0000
  92. # for the input fields
  93. input_shadow_xoffset 1
  94. input_shadow_yoffset 1
  95. input_shadow_color #0000ff
  96. # for the messages:
  97. msg_shadow_xoffset 1
  98. msg_shadow_yoffset 1
  99. msg_shadow_color #ff00ff
  100. # For the session:
  101. session_shadow_xoffset 1
  102. session_shadow_yoffset 1
  103. session_shadow_color #ff00ff
  104. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
