Etoile screenshot

Just for fun.. Here is a current screenshot of etoile, showing the EtoileMenuServer, Azalea (the windowmanager), Nesedah (the theme) and HelpViewer... Things start to work together ;-) [note that the shadow should not/will not appear under the helpviewer menu item...]

Looks really good!! Any plans for deb packages on the future??

I wonder how you get the shadow of windows. It is definitely not done by Azalea.

no plans for deb packages for the moment -- we'll see for the 0.2 release of étoilé if somebody steps in...

yen-ju: I simply enabled composite on Xorg, and used xcompmgr -c& ! ;)

But as noted, we need to mark the apps menus as not casting any shadow, as the menu from EtoileMenuServer already cast a shadow. That, and I also noticed if you maximize a window, it goes over the menu. I'll try to commit something on the menu server to prevent that (it's just a couple of X hints to set).

yen-ju: in fact, using "xcompmgr -cC &" is enough to not get the double shadows on the menus :)

That and your commit fixing the displacement for borderless window... it now looks perfect ;-)

Why no deb? I've had numerous unsuccessful attempts to build Etoile from source, not trivial stuff but stuff like "... no such method..." would pop. I have no clue as to what to do with that, and I want it so badly...
