Blackbox Tutorial - Part I: The ShellOK, I finally realize I can't postpone this anymore - the interest runs high and if I wait for more corrections and additions I will probably never submit it. So, here is my Blackbox Tutorial. It ain't perfect, it ain't complete, but it will do for the time being...Blackbox Tutorial - Part I: The Shell11 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are 3 parts, so far - The Shell, The Plugins, and The Styles. Knowing me, will probably add more on the way...
Have fun and happy Blackboxing!
OK, I have two sets of instructions for Blackbox - the short one and the loooong one. I am sure most people will read the short one, tho the long one is more detailed and safer. Here we go...
The short one
1) Dowload Blackbox for Windows. There are three clones: bb4w (http://www.bb4win.org), xoblite (http://www.desktopian.org/bb), and bblean (http://bb4win.sourceforge.net/bblean my personal favorite which I strongy recommend).
2) Create a folder under, say, c: named Blackbox. (clackbox). Unzip the con

Blackbox Tutorial - Part II: The PluginsOK, so u downloaded Blackbox, u ran ur fist session, u are happy switching styles - and then what? Most hardcore Linux Blackbox users will tell u there is nothing more - there should be nothing more. After all, Blackbox was created as a minimalistic shell. But u do want some buttons on the desktop, a clock, a system meter, perhaps, an audio player...Blackbox Tutorial - Part II: The Plugins11 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is where plugins come in. What started as a minimalistic shell with only two or three plugins, is now a different beast with over 60 plugins and more coming out each week. Plugins are basically little add-ons to the shell that offer many features - u take ur pick. Notice that Blackbox plugins are intended for Windows Blackbox clones only and do not work on other platforms or shells.
HOW TO LOAD PLUGINS
Very easy, if u use BBLean (which I strongly recommend). Right click on the desktop to bring up the menu and then click on Blackbox/Configuration/Plugins/Add Plugin. To load/unload pluggins, click on Blackbox/Configuration/Load/Unload.
Blackbox Tutorial - Part III: The StylesTHE STYLESBlackbox Tutorial - Part III: The Styles11 years ago in Personal More Like This
What makes Blackbox so irresistible, besides the fact that it skins every part of your desktop, including focused/unfocused windows (something that only Blackbox can do) is that there are actually over 5,000 styles (themes) for it available on the net - and this number is growing on a daily basis.
You see, Blackbox has a longer history as a Linux window manager, which means that when Blackbox for Windows appeared, at the middle of 2002, the *nix version was out for at least a couple of years and since the styles were interchangeable between the two platforms, there was already a plethora of themes to be used by the Windows users.
HOW TO IMPLEMENT STYLES
Usually, styles come in zip or text files. When zipped, the files usually contain the style file (a text file), a wallpaper (bmp, jpg, png, u name it), and/or a readme file for the credits, the fonts used, or other goodies. The text files are just the style files, without wallpapers and stuff. Sometimes they don't use the txt

The New Mobile Deviation PageThe deviation page on the mobile website has just gotten a huge uplift!The New Mobile Deviation Page1 year ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In uplifting the mobile deviation page, we re-evaluated what the most important functions and information on the deviation page were, and altered the page to present them in the most easily accessible way. From there, the deviation page was given a visual refresh for ease, clarity, and simplicity.
Features that were previously hidden and accessed by a "More" button can now be accessed without any page shifting, allowing the art to be the focus, and making for a seamless, user-friendly experience. More From This Artist becomes much more visible as well, encouraging viewers to tap through to see more of your art, and Featured Groups and other features are just a tap away.
In addition, a tab has been added so that viewers can easily watch or contact an artist from the deviation page, making it easier than ever to interact in the midst of your browsing experience.

Neat little Windows 8/10 trickHi everyone,Neat little Windows 8/10 trick11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just thought I share a little trick I came across on Windows 8 and Windows 10 when it comes to the Start Screen/Menu. Many people are probably aware that you can apply custom tiles to the Start Screen via tools such as OblyTile or Pin More. However, the problem with this is that it leaves some inconsistency between the start screen icon and the desktop icon of the app. At the same time, modifying your system is something that some people don't want to do. So here's a simple trick for making metro/modern style tiles without any system modification or the need to install an app. Here's is the result of this:
How is this possible? All it takes is a white 48x48 ico with a color outlining it:
Windows will automatically take the outline color and apply it to the tile. The downside to this is that there is only a handful of colors you can choose from and for some it may be harder to apply than OblyTile.
If people are interested, I am thinking about making an icon set specifically

I usually don't use dA journal to write about anything other than update on what I'm working on, but I have some important issues to address. As the Windows theming committee grows, it has been becoming harder and harder to control thief. As a result, I find myself constantly battling against thieves who shamefully steals my skin. What's even worse is that people are monetizing them for money through ad links or putting in dangerous adware through installation packs (aka skinpacks). Here is my theme, Acid, being used without my consent: http://techdhruv.com/fusion-skin-pack-for-windows-788-1/. It was posted by the deviant thedhruv. Like most skinpacks, the installer for this has adware and toolbars that the average user would not know how to avoid.

Skeletons simultaneously attract and repulse us, much like the contemplation of our one day inevitable deaths.
We would like to as much as possible shut out thoughts of our mortality, even though it is the one thing all human beings have common — the price of being alive is to know we will one day die. Skeletons are always there to remind us of this one grim universally equalizing reality, an iron

a rant about basic courtesy and respecti've never felt the need to complain about a fellow dA member in a public journal entry...here's one to start off my 13th year at deviantart.a rant about basic courtesy and respect8 months ago in Personal More Like This
this guy (http://phoshpor.deviantart.com/) made alterations to an image of mine and then subbed it to dA. he gave me credit for the original image in the notes. my image use policy (which is clearly stated on my dA profile page) asks that everyone notify me before using my images in any projects. because this guy gave me credit on the original submission, i assumed that he may have just missed seeing the policy on my page so i sent him a note asking that he request permission for any future use of images. didn't ask him to take off the submission. his response? yank the submission off and call me a "nitpicker" and "unfriendly". then he blocked me from sending him messages.
really dude? GET A GRIP. for a guy who calls himself a "professional" on his dA profile, he certainly acted like an ass. is it so hard to reply with a basic "OK"? apparently it

As previously announced, a brand new version of AwOken color is available! I added more than 100 new colored icons, so I think you will be pleased by the new additions!
Moreover, I packed them up also for AwOkenDark and AwOkenWhite iconsets, in order to get ready for the upcoming release! As you can see, the colored icons are the same as the default iconset, but the non-colored ones change according to the either dark or white colorization.
Here are the links:
Simply extract them, and place them in your ~/.icons directory.
If you feel brave, you can also try the customization script (in order to change forlders and even colorize the icons with whatever color you want).
Simply type this in your terminal window (after having done the previous step, i.e. moving the downloaded folders in your ~/.icons
