Long ago someone asked if it is possible to put emblems on icons in rox,
like Nautilus does. Well, I finally found some time to put together a
script that does just that. It is in the form of an Rox Application
Directory. BEWARE IT IS "BETA"! It was thrown together on one free
evening, so the edges are rough.
It works only for folders. Uses zenity (for dialogs) and imagemagick
(for compositing images).
There is one thing you have to do before you can use it. Open the AppRun
bash script inside the AppDir and set the basedir variable to point to
the Application Directory itself. Long story about why you should, just
do it. :)
To put an emblem on a folder icon, drop that folder on the AppDir. Just
clicking the AppDir brings another menu - Help, About, View Emblems. And
please read the Help file. (Click the AppDir -> Help) The Help also
explains how to add new emblems to the included ones (i put only 4
because of the mail size limit here).
If you want to do any modifications on the script, but can't (it's very
messy :D), just send me an email and I will try to help you.
I hope someone finds this useful, and sorry for the long email.
