Elysium 0.4.1

Well, Elysium is what I think should be the ultimate in useability for any user interface.
It has been designed from the ground up to be intuitive. Tabs like firefox/ie7 for your open tasks,
contextual custom start menu's (more on that later) a system info area and slick graphics.
Its a pretty simple and self explanatory theme.


You MUST propogate the start menus. This is done by going to the theme folder and putting your own
working shortcuts into the STARTMENU folder's subfolders. This is essentially building your own start
Also, you MUST add an evar for litestep called "burning" for the burning button to work.
I think thats about it.


*autohiding taskbar. When not in use it will slide out of view
*Nearly every transition is smooth and alphafaded.

This is an EARLY BETA of the LITESTEP THEME! it does NOT include the elysium windowblinds, which I
am still heavily developing.

-Winamp controls (though these will be toggled on/off as most people use cd cover art)
-Maybe desktop icons
-Whatever you suggest

Any suggestions for improvements please post them.

Hope you enjoy it!


P.S. INSTALL THE FONT! (in misc folder)

Love the theme, but could anyone tell me how to removed the CPU, Ram and Time Online notification's in the bar. I wish to leave the date and time though.

Ok, nevermind. I figured it out. Something so little made such a big difference.

*Label panel_main

In the theme.rc file, under *Label panel main, remove the "~" before the 3 and all your alignment issues will be solved.

This is a really awesome theme, thanks. There's one thing I find a little irritating though, the start panel submenu is overlapping the main panel buttons, can't click on them this way. The submenu needs to be shifted over to the right. I would do it myself but I can't find any X and Y coordinates for the submenu in the theme.rc. Please help!

None of the text lines up with the menus that i click on the bottom left. Also, when are you going to update this? If ever?

Looks nice..but can't get it working..
I rename the zip file into lsz file and clicked it and it seemed installed, but strangely it's not listed in the theme's list..
Sorry but i'm only a litestep beginner :)
