Kotler's GUI Stuff for AROS


1.2 (2010-10-22)


Kotler's GUI Stuff for AROS is a collection of GUI-related stuff
for AROS. Toolbars, Bitmap fonts, Pointers, and instructions on
how to make the Shell window have black or white background.

In detail:

- New toolbars/graphics for a couple of popular AROS applications
  such as OWB, MPlayer, AROSPDF, LunaPaint, AmiFig, ZuneArc
  and MurksIDE.

- A selection of Classic AmigaOS Bitmap Fonts suitable for use as
  'Title Font' and 'Tiny Font' in the Zune Preferences.

- Both Classic (3 colour) and 24-bit mouse pointers, such as the AmigaOS 2.x,
  Mac, Windows, Bebox, for use with the new Pointer Preferences program

- Instructions on how to edit your Shell-Startup script to a get a Shell
  with black background and white text.

*** NEWS FLASH! 2010-10-01

Paolone has kindly integrated the toolbar graphics from OWB, MPlayer
and AROSPDF in latest Icaros 1.2.4.

Note, there may have been changes/tweaks to the graphics in
this version (1.2)



To install these images, just replace the directory containing the images with
the corresponding application image directory.

*** Please make a backup of your old image directories.

AROSPDF: "ArosPDF/Images"
AmiFig: "AmiFig/Skins"
LunaPaint: "LunaPaint/data"
MPlayer: "MPlayer/images"
Murks_IDE: "Murks_IDE/Pictures"
OWB: "OWB/Resources" 
ZuneArc: "ZuneArc/Icons"

* = Two versions available. See below for differences.
** = Work by Mason / Frank Ruthe. Added for completeness. 

Difference in Mplayer:
Mplayer=Clearer and sharper tapedeck controls 
Mplayer_Alternative_Set=More subtle tapedeck controls



Even though the new anti aliased truetype fonts are great, AROS
still supports the old AmigaOS bitmap fonts.  Especially at
low sizes, truetype fonts with anti-aliasing gets a bit too blurred,
this is a few alternative fonts for use as small fonts.

For example, suitable replacements are 'Title Font' and the
'Tiny Font' in Zune. 

Also, included XCourier. A more refined, polished version
of the Courier font. For use with the Shell.

Copy to FONTS: directory



This is a small collection of Classic Pointers, the old three colour
type as well as the new 24-bit type.


- Use the Pointer Prefs program to load them.
- Select the same pointer file for both Normal and Busy

Among the included pointers are:

- AmigaOS 2.04+
- Large AmigaOS 2.04+ 
- Windows 3.11
- Windows 95
- Mac (old)


- Red and Black OpenAmiga
- A few fun and amusing pointers



*** DISCLAIMER: Not tested with the new, improved Shell by vidarh.
You have been warned.

Include these lines at the top of your S:Shell-Startup to get
white text on black background in your Shell.

PLEASE NOTE! You need to use the command prompt (prompt "*...)
as cited below, there already is one is in your Shell-startup, comment out
it or remove it.

Black background / White text

------- START HERE ------------

echo "*e[>1m*e[32;41m*e[0;0H*e[J"
alias cls "echo *"*E[0;0H*E[J*""
prompt "*E[42m*E[31m%N.*E[43m*E[32m%s*E[42m*E[31m>*E[41m*E[32m "

------- END HERE ---------------
