Stop Ibar flicker

Question

I am sure it is written somewhere, but Bodhis menu options are so many, I get lost! 

 

Is there a way to stop Ibar app icons to stop flickering when I mouse over them. It is just too distracting and makes me click on the wrong app sometimes.

 

Thanks,

 

Michel

Confusion maybe.

 

Engage is a module that acts as a "floating shelf" or "gadget container". Default parts of it are iBar and Tasks, you can also add some other gadgets.

In a standard shelf or as desktop gadget or in Engage you can access the ibar settings by right clicking on an icon in the ibar.

The iBar instance in Engage is more configurable ( e.g. zooming) compared to the default because Engage has more fancy options.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Yes, it, is. As I wrote before, you need to install bodhi-theme-moksha-detour theme and use it, or just assign iBar from this theme to your current theme in the theme advanced settings...

The simplest way I can suggest. It is a theme matter. But as I said, use the detour lBar theme and bind it with your current theme. The harder way is to decompile theme, find the script lines which are related to this effect, disable the effect, compile it back to edj file and copy to the proper locations. Feel free to try :)

 

BTW: I like that effect. It helps me know I am above right icon.

Try this, when you right click on that bar, and it shows 'Configure Bar' and you get to pick some of its settings: try checking or unchecking Show mouseover animation and see if it eliminates or reduces the effect. I have to let you know that my detourious screenshot posted on another thread shows some other special effects and they're being displayed by an AMD Radeon graphics card.

Removed the application name showing. Things a re abit less cluttered now, but no options for removing the flicker. No problem really. Thanks for all.

Do you still have Bodhi on a USB stick or disc that you can run on a friend's netbook or laptop, I was wondering whether the symptoms do not appear on different hardware. And there is no option to "remove flicker" but having mouseover animations checked or unchecked might have more to do with it. In any case, it could be a mere annoyance; you're welcome, but still welcome to try this last one out too.

Where can I check / uncheck mouseover animation?

I think what may not be clear to you is that you can combine elements from other themes with your main theme. This is what the Waiter was suggesting you do in an earlier post. You have to first install those other themes, then from the Main menu choose Settings then Theme. At the Theme Selector dialog box click Advanced, where you can select elements from other themes (such as Modules/iBar) to incorporate into your theme.

 

What Waiter is saying is that this element from the detour theme will stop the mouse effects you mention. I can't comment on this as I haven't tried it.

Michel, how to get there is in post # 5, but JollyRoger is referring to the waiter's post preceding mine, post # 4. And yes, you can mix and match pieces from different themes, so that you are not limited to one theme only. My overall theme, right down to the clock gadget, is detourious but going to the Advanced Theme setting I could assign Black Nostrum to do my borders because the filament-thin borders in detourious mean that I cannot Window shade Left.

 

The next screenshot illustrates the result.

Hello Jolly I got the general idea, just don't want to change how my theme looks right now. All is well. It still flickers, but I removed the app names from appearing and it makes it OK. Thanks

15 seconds of your life will show you what The waiter was suggesting.

 

DOOMguy, your settings panel specifies Engage settings rather than iBar Settings.

Sometimes it is hard to assume the user experiencie and fit the right answer. Now I hope everything is clear...

Video tutorial was about turning off the icon label but I was talking about combining two themes as was already said.
