LCARS 4.2 released
Here is another photo and a screenshot of our new theme, Okuda:
The changelog has details on what else is new. To install or upgrade, just use this .install file. After installing, select a theme and a background and then reboot for everything to be properly reloaded.
The install process is unfortunately rather slow, usually taking between 1 and 3 minutes, due to the numerous cache files which must be updated post-install. Starting with this release, the themes’ postinst scripts now run gtk-update-icon-cache on the icon themes’ directories, and lcars-extras runs it on the hicolor icon theme in postinst and postrm. The Okuda theme includes a font, so it runs fc-cache. And, as before, all of the themes run hildon-theme-cacher (which is the slowest of the three types of cache). I’m not sure why hildon-theme-cacher needs to be run on the device; it seems like it would make more sense (and be quicker for users) to pre-generate those gtkrc cache files as part of the themes’ build process. Oh well.
Enjoy the new themes, and please let us know if you make modified versions! :)
