I already requested a vertical toolbar/taskbar, now I was wondering if it were possible to do it for window decoration too. Nowadays I scarcely use bbleanskin, particularly because of its inability to skin transparent borders or the new windows metrics...whatever. I managed to skin firefox......blabla. One thing that would be a definite plus would be total skinning. I know cthu1hu used true transparency but hell why use bb if I have to use additional softwares, it's like using rainmeter when you have bbinterface and (not so long ago) a plethora of plugins for showing sysmetrics.

Something like that would be nice, Alex. Seen it in some WindowBlinds skins, but that ain't BB. :) There is a simpler solution - an app called Fungus or something, a label thing that attaches to window frames and looks just like in your screenies. Tried to Google for it, couldn't find it. I guess I will have to try harder.

Hi Pete.


I consider myself good at googling things but can't find anything. I remember using wm2, flwm and sawfish on my netbook and finding it very practical at preserving screen space.


On the other hand "Fungus" will only be a label. Some MS stylers already done that. It's more cosmetic than anything else (even though my ultimate goal is cosmetic surgery of windows) I would like something more usable.
