how did you do the whole taskbar in samurize? i've been fiddling around with an ancient taskbar plugin which doesn't really work quite well so i was wondering... how? indulge me into a little of your knowledge?
i'm afraid i really did use exactly the plugin you're talking about. the big white bar is just a graphic underlay. you could try to get a newer version of the taskbar plugin, but i can't really recommend it after all... you cannot compare the oldfashioned samurize stuff to litestep. if you want to get rid of the windows shell, just use LS
yeah i know i used litestep before and i checked for an updated version but the project hasn't been updated in about a year (if not more).
I have some litestep themes in my gallery (one of 'em is on the third page of all time favourites )
problem is, i tried the gaia litestep theme but it gives errors galore, one is for rainmeter (not installed) so that's my own problem but there's also a memory could not be read error and the thing crashes constantly...
