    Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Hi there.

    I made a theme for my N73 with the carbide.ui 3.1.

    When I install it on my phone, the background picture is not displayed. Instead the screen is left white, and when I browse through the menues the picture does not refresh, so old menue items are still displayed til I browse over the new ones.

    Any ideas what is causing this?

    Thx

    Sen

    Hi,
    What kind of image do you use for background?
    Is it idle background or normal background?
    Do you use layers?

    If a svg images has been installed into your theme as background or idle image with wrong dimensions it may occur...

    Angry Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Hi,

    I'm having the same problem, both with my own theme, and with the ones that I've tried from the examples that come with carbide.ui.

    All the themes look correct in the previews in carbide, but they don't have a background and just draw each change of screen on top of the previous without clearing.

    Has anyone managed to find a solution to this problem?


    Thanks

    Alex

    Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Hi,

    The problem seems to be related to using bitmaps as the background image.

    I found that the Grey Day carbide example works correctly when I package it up and install it on my phone. However if I just change the background to a bitmap, suddenly it doesn't work when deployed to the phone.

    Has anyone found a solution to this, it seems a fairly fundamental problem!

    Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    I'm having this trouble too.....

    All I want to do is create a full screen background for the idle screen of my n73. I open the base template, delete the existing idle background layer and copy a 240x320 jpeg as a new layer on the idle background. build the sis and hey presto, the idle background is white.

    Is this a bug or are we doing something wrong here?

    With all the features in Carbide this ought to be simple. What going wrong?

    Does the background need to be a vector doc???

    Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Hi all, I have the same problem here. Just copy and paste a bitmap to my idle screen background, looks good in Carbide, then white on the phone.

    Anyone knows how to fix this?

    Unhappy Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    I have a N95 also, sorry i didn't mention it.
    It may be a Carbide.ui problem, or it may come from us, but what is more simple than copy and paste in Carbide, save, build .sis and transfer.... I don't know where my mistake is, or maybe i forget something?

    No specialist here? Or even someone who was able to change the background on a S60 theme with Carbide (...seems so easy, said like this).

    Any help welcome.

    Ey everyone,

    I solved the problem!!!
    I installed an older version of Carbide.ui and that worked. I installed version 3.1 in stead of version 3.1.1.
    Here's the download link:

    http://forum.nokia.com/info/sw.nokia...9GZiOeYNoNM-20

    Just install it, load you're created theme into it and then convert a .sis file. But when you convert the .sis file, choose as a Target Platform: S60 Platform 3rd Edition and NOT: S60 Platform 3rd Edition Feature Pack 1. After that just tranfer the .sis file to your phone and install it, and voila... YOU'VE GOT A BACKGROUND!!! (at least I did :P, here's an example: http://ad.delusional-abyss.net/Screenshot_Ashelin_X.jpg)

    Good Luck Everyone!

    Hoop it works for you too!
    If not, post a message here, maybe I can try it for you, if you want :P.

    Good luck (again :P), Valens

    Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Congrats to you, and thanks A LOT for sharing with us.
    I was thinking of trying to try 3.1 also, as I saw it was a maintenance release for E series mostly, and Nokia says not to change unless we experience bugs listed in the changelog of the 3.1.1 maintenance release.

    I should have tried yesterday evening, it would have saved me a lot of frustration

    I didn't try yet, I'm at work and have to wait for tonight to try this, but as we had the exact same problem, I'm now full of hope

    Once again, I want to say a huge thanks to you for sharing this information with us.

    Re: Carbide.ui 3.1 Theme and N73 background trouble

    Hi,

    May I ask you for details (how the problems appears), how exactly do you modify the Idle Background, I have tried it several times (on Carbide.ui 3.1.1), and the Idle screen on the phone is changed correctly.

    What are your editing actions? Do you just copy/paste the image, use drag&drop, in which view do you apply the copy/paste actions?

    Here it is (new theme based on "BaseGraphics"):

    1. In "Gallery" select "Contacts"

    2. In "Contacts elements" select "BACKGROUND" > "Background" > "Active Background" > "Background" > "Application_window"

    3. In "Background Layers" select "layer0" then "Edit/Animate selection" select "layer0" and "Paste"

    4. The background is changed
    4.1 Also the background has changed in these views(in "Gallery"): Idle, Calendar Month View, From Selection List, Settings List, Settings Menu.

    5. Close "Background", Save? -> Yes.

    6. Build "sis" package

    7. Transfer to phone

    8. It doesn't work ))

    ...When I install it on my phone, the background picture is not displayed. Instead the screen is left white, and when I browse through the menues the picture does not refresh, so old menue items are still displayed til I browse over the new ones.
