Re: [tdf-discuss] Re: creation of a Persona Gallery Page on LO page system

It was suggested that someone create a wiki page that shows the step by step creation and use of a persona/theme for the LO users. I might even take a shot at it.

Since the "<libo>/program/edition/header.jpg" info is not part of the current documentation, maybe someone could write up the text on how to use that option. I know that you cannot create a new folder in the "/program/" folder, since it is locked and needs a root password to create it. So you cannot do this with you file manager in Linux. I know it might be easier with a Windows users.

Still there is not documentation, anywhere, about the "pre-installed" Persona that is the "default" after you install LO 4.0.x.

So, the only info is using the ones on the Firefox gallery of themes and personas [personae]. That is what I am doing. I create these designs using the FF process and submit it to their gallery system. There seems to be a "bug" that does not pick up the specified font color [not just a header image] for the background image, there have been some users that are using darker backgrounds that use light text for Firefox and Thunderbird, but does not show up using those designs with LO So there may be some need to do more than just place a header image in a "undocumented" folder, to get everything working.

I just think that someone just forgot about the menu color issues that may come up with some backgrounds. Also, some of the toolbar icons have their backgrounds set as transparent, instead of white, so they have a hard time being seem on any non-white background color. Well, that can be fixed by just making sure these icons are saved without a transparency or replace the transparent background with white. That is a hassle, but it can be done simply, as long as you have access to all of the icon files. Of course some extension add icons to your toolbar menu[s], so their authors will need to make their icons with non-transparent backgrounds.

But, hey, this is a new design element and it will take a few versions to get it all worked out and bug free.

So these would all be individual bug submissions:

* ability to test (locally) your designs?
That is easily to do:
- create a folder in <libo>/program called edition
- put in a jpg called header.jpg
- switch on the option "Pre-Installed Persona (if available)" in the
option Personalization

That's it.

Where is the documentation for that?
I don't know. I asked Jan (the developer) and he showed me this way. And
so I tested it in Win8 and XP.

Does it work for Windows, Linux, and Mac?
I don't know. I have neither Linux nor Mac. But I think so, especially
for Linux.

Where is the "<libo>/program" folder on Ubuntu and Win7?
The path where you installed LibO 4.

Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4.0\program\edition
