Hello,

I discovered a really pretty E theme called "grunge" here : https://exchange.enl.../theme/show/154

The problem is that this theme does not look compatible with e19, whiwh I am using.

I've decompiled it and am trying to recompile it but several instrucions as for example the "spectrum{}" block refuse to compile. I'm trying to understand how to replace them with instructions usable by the newer versions of edje but I'm having a hard time finding them

 

So I'm asking : do you know any miracle solution or at least a list of everything that changed since the old E and EFL ?

 

Thanks !

The theme is VERY old, so you have to update to e17 stable (spectrum{} part, file manager, adding tasks module...) after that you can try to follow this guide: https://phab.enlight...heme_migration/

 

The miracle solution could be searching on our forum for some topics that talk about theme migration like these to update to e17 stable:

good luck and keep in mind that you only get the EDJE part of your theme, I mean the shelf, the borders, the pointer and all that stay outside the window. To get Elementary (ELM) support (so to make themed eSudo, eDit, ePad and other "e"-apps) you have to write by yourself the theme. :D

Thanks a lot ! I will try that !

Just a last question : There is another version here : http://fullmetaltoma...Grunge-82208747(I know it's another version because the .edj files do not have the same weigh) It was posted 2 years later so is there any chance for it to be already updated foe e17 stable ? (yes, I'm a bit lazy x)

and the thing is, this one I cannot decompile using edje_decc, it says "grunge_by_fullmetaltoma.edj does not appear to be an edje file"...

If you get an edje_decc error could be related that this is OLDER than the other you have found on exchange :)
