I come here very frustrated, I really want to make my own theme for my N95, but whatever I try, i cannot do the SIMPLEST thing in a theme : just change the idle screen background !
I make a picture in Paint shop pro, save it as a non layered image file (i tried .png, .gif, then .bmp), then Ctrl+c on the file and paste in carbide.ui on the idle screen background, as seen in the "Getting started with Carbide.ui screencast". That's all I do.
Then I package my .sis file with a keypair I generate, transfer to phone by USB cable (PC Suite mode) then I install and select the theme on my phone.
The result is I get the default Carbide.ui theme (normal), but my idle screen background is desperately white !!!
Please help, this is so frustrating...
