    compiz + icepanel + nghost = eyecandy for your car

    billygalbreath called me out that I hadn't ever produced this demo. So here it is!

    I took the stock LinuxICE skin, added a dbus-send command to rotate compiz. Just shows you can have fun with nghost skinning.

    Here's the skin mods I made if anyone is interested:

    next-window.xml:
    Code:
    <skin name="nGhost ICE compiz" version="0.0.1">
    	<item>
    		<name>nghost-next-screen</name>
    		<type>command</type>
    		<action type="send">nghost link:@next@</action>
    	</item>
    	
    		
    	<item>
    		<name>rotate-right</name>
    		<type>command</type>
    		<action type="cmd">icepanel-compiz-next.sh</action>
    	</item>
    
    	<item>
    		<name>goback</name>
    		<type>command</type>
    		<action type="link" >@back@</action>
    	</item>
    	
    </skin>
    icepanel-compiz-next.sh:
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    
    dbus-send --print-reply --type=method_call --dest=org.freedesktop.compiz /org/freedesktop/compiz/rotate/allscreens/rotate_right_key org.freedesktop.compiz.activate string:'root' int32:`xwininfo -root | grep id: | awk '{ print $4 }'`
    Add next-window.xml to your skin.xml, copy icepanel-compiz-next.sh to /usr/local/bin and go.

    You do the same thing for prev-window but you replace "rotate_right_key" in the dbus send command with "rotate_left_key".

    Sorry to revive such an old thread...

    But I was wondering if this still works? I would love to play around with it.

    Cool...

    Some questions then -- when I looked here:

    http://wiki.openice.org/index.php?ti...nners_Tutorial

    I got the impression that the title of the skin should all match, but this example seems to use the default
    skin and add a new capability to it. However, the xml files have it's name as "nGhost ICE compiz". Is that right? Do I need to create a new skin folder set for this or drop it into the default skin folders?

    Thanks in advance

    i don't recall that the skin titles need to match. I created a copy of the skin and renamed/modified it. Either way will work.

    One last question on this...

    How did you change your xsession line to run compiz instead of matchbox?

    edit /etc/matchbox/session and change the exec ck-launch matchbox to:

    Code:
    compiz &
    exec ck-launch maximus

    Thanks!! (just a note -- it's ck-launch-session, in case someone else reads this thread. And don't forget to install maximus)
