    I want to make some themes for the Touchpad. I have experience making themes for the Sony PSP, PS3, Blackberries and such. I have downloaded the WebOS theme builder. IS there a list of file locations and image sizes that I can refer to when constructing a theme? Also Is this theme builder the right one for making Touchpad themes?

    Thanks

    There does not seem to be a whole lot of interest in doing themes. I replaced some of the stock icons on mine, fairly simple, and it doesn't seem to care a whole lot about image sizes. Very tedious though doing it manually.

    I suggest finding an existing TouchPad theme and learning from that.

    Use internalz.

    I don't remember the exact locations, something like /usr/palm/applications/...

    The icon that shows up in the app tray is usually called icon.png

    I copy my new icon to the directory, rename the old one icon.png.bak (so I can easily change it back), rename the new icon icon.png, restart luna and you should see your new icon.

    That's the basics.

    I've got a theme ready, but can't figure out how to get it into the .ipk format. PreThemer keeps creating empty files when I upload the theme. I'll see if I can list out the known image locations for you later on.

    Preware, install Internalz and use that to browse around and what not.

    I can't find where the arrow is. I wish you could just get rid of it and put another app there.

    I've been trying to figure out how to make a theme fit for the TPad too. Can't believe football season is a week away.

    Too bad PreThemer probably won't be modified to support the tablets as well.

    Is there a list anywhere of only Touchpad themes? I found [Touchpad] Glass Effect Suite and it works great but it's tedious trying to find unique TP only themes in Preware.

    ok, i am having trouble getting the preware up and running. I have checked all the wiki stuff. I dont have a pre phone. Can i get some pointers? I will be making the themes on a Windows 7 machine and installing them on the touchpad.

    I am probably missing somethign obvious. Sorry for that. Bear with me, i am new to WebOS.

    Thanks

    Am I missing something? When I try to copy something with Internalz, I seem to be restricted to a very few directories, and definitely not including the one I want to copy to.

    Permissions problem perhaps?

    What I am trying to do is to change the name under the "Developer Mode" icon (mainly to see if I can, but also because it's now called "DeveloperMode", and the final 'e' is annoyingly on the second line by itself).

    I figured I'd edit the file /usr/palm/applications/com.palm.app.devmodeswitcher/appinfo.json.webinternals.orig, but it won't open in a text editor unless I move it (sent it to downloads and modified the icon name). Now I can't seem to copy it back using Internalz.

    Any ideas?


    All it

    ok, i fiound teh icons with internalz. i have some icons ready, but when i try to get to it from the pc i can find the folders on the touchpad i need to get to. i have hidden files showing up, but it is like it is blocked by a firewall or something. How do I get to the icons from a pc? Or do i have to use internalz for that too? If som how?

    Thanks

    @beardedspoon with the Pre's that was one thing that could never be changed....the launch arrow....sorry

    (who knows maybe with the influx of people from other OS's....magic can occur)

    @bugdry what you can do, is hook your TouchPad up with the USB. and just move the files into the folder (media/internal) that opens up when you put it into USB MODE.

    Move all your icons into that folder/subfolder whatever...then with Internals, move them around to the exact locations that you want. Hope that helps

    Never mind! Figured it out. It was a permissions problem, and I found the file I needed to change (appinfo.json). Now my Dev Mode icon label looks exactly as it should.

    Good call, I didn't really notice it until your post pointed it out. Had to fix ASAP.

    ok, this is where I am in the process of making a theme. i have a bunch of icons ready. I have re coloured and textured etc a cunch of the other images from the touchpad such as teh keyboard and stuff. The problem I have run into is that the icons are under the /usr/palm/applications.......... where as when i use internalz to copy the new icon files from a folder i put in the /media/internal folder it will not let me get to /usr/palm/applications. When i back up completely through the folders all i have to start at are:

    /media/cryptofs/apps
    /media/internal
    /var


    Am I not supposed to overwrite the default icons?

    Thanks
