|1) The copperwine theme is awesome - How can I make my own theme extension|
from one of the existing fluxbox themes on the fluxbox site?
Best thing to do is to untar the Coppermine theme.
Copy it to a work or temp directory, and type
'tar xzvf Coppermine-theme.tar.gz'
or ... 'tar xzvf C*' for short..
Look inside it for the contents..
These hold all the files...
When you get one from the fluxbox site,
place the components inside these directories...
edit the init file to your liking, or just copy it...
keep ownership of files as damnsmall.staff...
( if you do this as user 'damnsmall' your probably ok )
tar and gzip it..
2) How can I add additional roms to xmame,
and can the screen be resized to fullscreen?
any rom can be run from the terminal
'xmame *path/to/name of rom*'
Updating the mydsl-menu would require rebuilding the dsl.
You could also make a new submenu entry,
along with your favorite rom, and make an add-on .dsl file.
( like bigblaster.dsl for xmame )
search the forums for info on building your own dsl...
type in a terminal 'xmame --help' for the syntax to run
with larger screens. My kids know them by heart,
but I can't remember them from memory.
3) Can DSL be remastered in a way to load a Flash presentation
on startup? I have played with movix for mpeg files, but have
yet to come across a linux livecd solution that does flash.
If you find a player for flash files, making it autorun on bootup
would be easy. I don't know if the xine or mplayer files have
flash-play ability. If there is a plug-in, we can easily add it in..
