Blackbox by pitkon Blackbox by pitkon
FULL INSTALL PACKAGE, INCLUDING WALLPAPER, ICONS, BLACKBOX BUILD and PLUGINS.
The wallpaper is "Night In The City" by alextc1 :iconalextc1: with his permission.
The excellent icons are "Black Beauty" by icebabee :iconicebabee: used with her permission.
All you have to do is unzip Blackbox Blackbox.zip under C:\Blackbox (rename your Blackbox folder if you already use Blackbox), restart (if you already use Blackbox) and either double click on Blackbox.exe or use a shell switcher like ShellOn (if you haven't used Blackbox before) and enjoy.
The wharf is a complete plugin with icons, but only the Web drawer is functional with paths to apps most of us use - Firefox, Outlook Express, Safari and Utorrent. Use this drawer as a template. The rest of the drawers are titled and full of buttons with icons, but you have to provide paths to your own apps and name the buttons accordingly. Ctrl+Right Click on each button to go to Control Options/Mouse Down/Run Open/Browse and browse to each app. Then, Ctrl+Right click on each button to go to Control Options/Control Name and type the name of each app so you can remember what each button is pointing to.
Again, this theme is for a resolution of 1920X1080 or higher. For lower resolutions, please note me
Anyone who wishes to try Blackbox for the first time, please e-mail me for instructions.
If you want to learn more about Blackbox, I suggest you read an introduction here [link] and my tutorials:
[link] tutorial part I - the shell
[link] tutorial part II - the plugins
[link] tutorial part III - the styles
They are pretty much outdated by now (I MUST find time to bring them up to date... lol) but they will give you a general idea.
And, of course, feel free to ask if you need more info or instructions :)

Thanks, my friend! This works for any desktop. BBI elements can be moved around and if they don't show up on your monitor I can tell you how to do it. But I am not sure if the wallpaper looks right in a 1200X800 reso...

There are no compatibility issues with Blackbox, so what you experience is unusual. Please note me with technical info (OS used, Blackbox build used, applications loaded, plugins used) so I can further help you...
