Problem: after applying this, a change in font size destroys windows layout (maximize, close icons are only partially visible)
Yes, I am aware of this problem. Unfortunately I know no way around it as openbox determines the titlebar height based on the font.
According to this site
If you want to make your window icons larger, you would have to specify that your theme’s users change the font size in obconf to something larger, such as 10px+.
Later on the author suggests openbox change this and determine the icon size, based on the icon size.
Either I had to shrink the buttons or go with a large font.
The major problem: uninstall doesn't work properly. The installer should backup all settings it changes to allow uninstaller to restore them.
In my case I lost my autostart script and several other settings was also damaged, so I had to restore defaults, reboot and restore manually what was lost by testing the scripts.
Good point. Currently the uninstall script simply deletes the theme, icon and mouse packs, uninstalls xcompmgr and the gtk engine, then launches lxappearance and prompts the user to change the settings back. And you're right, is did overwrite the autostart file.
I have updated the script to backup all files it replaces
to a directory in the Windows-10 directory, so this problem should be fixed.
Install script was also improved to not close all graphical programs by restarting the lightdm service. Instead, it restarts lxpanel, openbox, and pcmanfm.
Any other suggestions? Specifically I have noticed the relative lack of attention to this topic and am wondering if there is a better place to put this transformation pack. Gnome-look.org? GitHub?
