Bleach for Trillian Astra by juzmental Bleach for Trillian Astra by juzmental
Bleach for Trillian Astra version 1.04b.

I had released a previous beta of this skin on here, but this one is a proper release.

This is the first skin I completed for Astra (the 2nd skin I started). I decided to create the skin after working on AikonIV in the very early days of the Astra alpha stage.

It's influences are both Mac OSX and Vista (or Windows 7).

I spent a bit more time working on the preview image in this one. :)

Despite what the preview shows, it does have full avatar display in the contact list.

Enjoy!

1.04b Update: Just added a chatview entry that I had forgotten so you can rechoose the chatstyle if you switch to simple mode.

this is my favorite skin so far, so much so that when i lost it building my new pc i spent ages hunting for it. i absolutely consider this a "must have". my only complaint, and only because im a cheapskate, is that the "vista glass" black theme isnt the default. so to have my fave theme i had to upgrade.

lovely work, thank you so much.

this is how i feel as well, the skin is very nice, clean, manageable, but i just started using trillian today after getting frustrated by digsbys progressive bugginess, and there is very little chance that i am going to upgrade any time soon. i feel like i speak for more than just myself when i say that black or grey is much easier to match and easier on the eyes.

I have down Loaded some programs from some of the Groups I have joined and I couldn't get some of the programs to work.. I sent Messages to the Developers about some of the problem's I was having and I have yet to hear anything back from them.. "BUT" I will come back to you after I have Explored your Product..

I was wondering about the way the corners are rounded. Is it just a bug for me or does everyone have a black square outline around the rounded section on the contact list? I really find it quite annoying for some reason. >.<

Other than that I really do like the theme but would like to change the colors as well, not being a pro that's a bit difficult for me. I see you can tweak the code but I'm a bit of a noob with that sort of thing. I clicked on the xml folder and then files but then it comes up in Firefox and says that it can't be viewed. Am I doing something wrong? T_T

There's a glitch with this when you minimize the window it still shows a shdow if it. I'm not sure if it's the skin or astra.
Anyway, please keep updating this skin as it's pretty awesome and we need more astra skinners!

That's Trillian that introduces the limitations.. The only way you can switch themes now is by editing a file by hand...

I too would like chat windows to become glass as well for the vista skin. I don't want to just use the transparency option though.

:iconjuzmental:
juzmental Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's currently a limitation of Astra that transparency in message windows/containers breaks things a bit too much. The message window goes all laggy and things just don't work right. Hoping it's fixed up in the 4.1 release.

Really a very cute skin, i love it...

... but i'm using beta version (2008) cause the chatwindows are not glass in 1.04!!!

Will U FIX THAT, PLEASE :P

Hopefully glass will work in a later version of Astra. In 4.0x it breaks things when used in the message windows!

Juuust wondering but..

do you still plan on allowing users to change the IM background color or have you scrapped the whole idea..

If so is there a way I can do it myself?
Reply
:iconjuzmental:
juzmental Featured By Owner Jul 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Do you mean just the background area? Or the whole skin? Whole skins colors need to be switched via themes, just the background isn't reallly supported any more I think.

The skin is for Trillian Astra, so you need to download that first, then you unzip the archive to the skins folder inside your Trillian folder.

Would it be possible to make the standard theme black (vista like) so non-pro users can have a layout that's more easy on the eyes?

Awesome skin nonetheless, keep the good work up. :D

It is possible (via a little tweaking of the code) to make any of the themes the default. If you're game, it's in the files.xml file :)

Kind of buggy:
Simple View doesn't work, each contact occupying variable height.
The conversation window attached to the upper left desktop corner when trying to move it. This screwed up the layout completely. After I unticked attach to desktop the window changed length (I still haven't reached the other end).

This is a pity really, because I like midnight cowboy theme a lot. Tested on W7.7201.

Simple view bug is related to Astra itself it seems, as the only control I have over that is colors and not sizes or spaces.

As for the message window problem, I suggest reloading Astra and trying again as it does work fine, it sounds like it's tried to attach itself to a window that didn't appear - again not something controlled by the skin itself..

What you've encountered are Astra bugs, not skin bugs, although the simple mode one is a bit weird and I'm not sure why it happens in my skins and not the ones bundled with the app.

After more testing and crashing (apparently Astra doesn't like changing skins too often) I've found another problem, with chat view. Most of the times the only option is "original". I can't seem to get all three to reappear for the moment (restarting Astra didn't work). When they did appear, changing to "bubbles" worked after selecting something or sending/receiving a message, and "playscript" after doing the latter.

And slight aesthetic problem with midnight c. and playscript. Status/system messages are hard to read due to the blue font. I can't test other combinations for now because everyone is sleeping while I'm being a bother.

I've just updated the archive to 1.04b. Just a minor fix to the chatview section, so the proper style in the skin shows up in the list (and not just the simple mode). The only chatview styles you should have available are the "Simple" and "Bleach Chatview" ones. I'm not sure how you managed to get playscript working with Bleach?? Or was that back in Cordonata?

Also "appearance and placement" settings don't save avatars as hidden.

DA could use an edit button..

Luc2k Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009
Sorry, playscript didn't work, it was still bubbles when selected. When chat view didn't work, I changed options through Cobalt.

The chat window attach bug is still pretty annoying, the long window did not reset to normal after restart. Had to re-save "appearance and placement". Deselecting chat window attach to desktop seems to stop the bug.

Simple view works as intended now, as it did the last time I tried the previous version... Anyway, keep up the good work.

Juz. I don't know what's going on man, but bleach is seriously fucking up trillian AND my pc. by the default it maximises the windows and sends the CPU load on a dual core machine to 100% usage

Not sure what the deal is there. I can't control anything like that from within a skin so it must be related to something else in Astra. Try reinstalling the skin? or Astra for that matter?

I tried that. I removed trillianw ith all profile info, reinstalled everything and still got the same issue; the window just opens out completely by default and hogs the resources.

There's not really any control over that yet.. There is the ability to use a straight text mode for messages, but I don't think I even looked at it's colours.. I'd have to look into that one myself.

You need to be an Astra Pro user to change themes. To get to them, just click on the settings icon at the bottom right corner of the contact list and it will open up a new panel and right up the top are the different themes.
