RooLa Launchy by OtisBee RooLa Launchy by OtisBee

  • LAUNCHY 2.1.2 [link] IS REQUIRED !!
  • PLEASE INSTALL THE INCLUDED FONTS BEFORE YOU APPLY THIS SKIN !!
  • THIS SKIN LOOKS BEST WITH A 70-80% OPACITY SETTING !!

"...Launchy is a free windows and linux utility designed to help you forget about your start menu, the icons on your desktop, and even your file manager.
Launchy indexes the programs in your start menu and can launch your documents, project files, folders, and bookmarks with just a few keystrokes!..."

(Josh Karlin)


upon request by ~Lustmusket3000 i have finally created my first ever Launchy skin, which perfectly matches my RooLa -rounded- ObjectDock background, the RooLa skin for CD Art Display and the according RooLa Walls.

(hope you like it, Nico!) :D






since this is my first Launchy skin i can only hope that i've configured everything properly and if not, please be lenient towards me. just drop me a line and i'd gladly try to fix the issue asap.

well, i hope you'll like the RooLa Launchy and i'm looking forward to your feedback.

thx!



P.S.: .. also check out the RooLa Clock by ~GamerWorld14!!

thanks a lot! :w00t:

a pity tho that with the new search engine in win7 launchy became somewhat obsolete. :hmm:
but then again, it's great if you're still running winXP. ;)

so.... is this pic the correct template size for a new Launchy skins?

OtisBee Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
i'm not quite sure if i know what you mean.
i'd say that any launchy skin can be used as a template for creating a new one. :confused:

what i meant was, is it the correct size for a new launchy skin... but you can make it any size u want or need...

OtisBee Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
hmm.. i'm not really an expert in skinning launchy. in fact, i've used another already existing skin (don't know the name anymore) for this one and only exchanged the main graphics and altered some code.
i have no idea if it's the correct size. i'm afraid you just have to try or ask someone who's more familiar with launchy. sorry. ;)

Love it! Matches the black Token icons very nicely. I'd love to see a version that matches the white Token icons. :P

OtisBee Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
oh yes, i can imagine those black Token icons look pretty cool there. :)
unfortunately there are no plans of making a brighter version of RooLa Launchy at any time soon. :hmm:
thanks for the excellent feedback, tho. :w00t:

Again a BIG thank you, Otisbee , I have just found, not only,a skin which integrates perfectly in my desktop composition,but besides, I discover a small very practical software
[I just have a small problem, no possibility of changing the opacity/:nothing shown on it ° _ °but not serious I would end up finding]
I repeat this: creator's of software owe a proud candle to the artists as to you...

A huge thank you for this wonderfull work, and for this discovery my friend

OtisBee Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
aww, you're too kind.
thanks so much for your appreciation again. :hug:

as for the transparency (resp. opacity)...
...try rightclicking the skin anywhere outside of the actual text area (somewhere near the edge) and select "options".
in the next window you should now be able to find an opacity slider. ;)

i hope that helps.
see you around and oohh, ...thanks for your :+fav: by the way. :#1:

ZenSeishin Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2009
no problem for appreciation, it is in measure of effort provided ;)...for the problem of the transparancy yes I have from the first installation, been in the menu "option "(allways in first after any installation): everything is noted there... but without any cursor or slide to change stocks '_ ' it is it that avoids me completely lol-> screenshot: [link]
to be sure I uninstalled and re-installed software (version 2.1.2) but :confused: same problem with or without windowblinds...I believed has a missing pluggin but normally everything is included of origin for it in everything cases for this option her me there lose my Latin ... but I would find it:XD:

hmm, ...that's really strange.
personally i probably would try a different WBtheme or add launchy to the list of excluded programs in WB.
but on the other hand you already mentioned that WB might not be the issue. :confused:

i have no idea what's wrong there. :O_o:

Do you possibly still have this wallpaper????

We share a passion for blue I believe.

I hope you do have it, it's killer.

That is the wrong wallpaper. I was refering to the wall from your roola launchy screenshot.

nope, that's the wallpaper i used and edited for the launchy preview.
a different one does not exist.

beautiful best launchy skin :D
How can i set opacity to 70-80%? In the options panel there's just a bar but no number which indicates the %
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
well, ...actually that's why i wrote "70-80%", because one can only estimate the real opacity in Launchy. :D
my guess would be to have the opacity slider somewhere in the fourth quarter on the right. :)

anyways, ...thank you so much for your kind feedback and your fav! :bow:

Awesome! You just keep coming up with more and more of these awesome skins :)

Now all we need is miranda and maybe a whole msstyle based on it! xD
Reply
:iconotisbee:
OtisBee Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009  Hobbyist Interface Designer
haha, thanks! :D

well, i think msstyles don't support rounded corners, but a WBtheme would be cool. :nod:
i'd use it in no time, but unfortunately i have no idea how to accomplish that. :confused:

:iconproject-noah:
project-noah Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2009
Yeah, msstyles have some stupid limits like no transparency and such, but I don't really like WB because it takes up too much of my RAM :( Also it uses a .dll file which has the same name as a virus that can hack my game accounts. That's why I stay away from WB so that I don't have to worry if the file is a virus or a .dll part of WB.

Another great skin!

I've got a problem though - on long filenames the text of the output is cut off at the beginning. I've messed about with the txt files and i've moved the icon but even though there is lots of space the output text is still cut off. Any help would be appreciated.

And where did you get that awesome dA icon?

Thanks
