I wanted to try a colourful single-screen setup, so this is my attempt at that.
Running Slim Bean 3.1 and Lean Kernel 4.7 exp 2.

    hi can you please tell me what icon pack have you used?

  2. Posted 2013/01/08 at 11:53 am | Permalink

    @mihir — Of course. I used the “round-white” icons from http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1810455.

    Very nice set up, can you please share wallpaper if you don’t mind :)

    @some1one — Yup, I just uploaded it!

    Lovely setup. Trying to do this on Nexus 4 with Apex launcher. But somehow can’t get the grid set up correctly. I love this theme, so I will keep trying a bit harder to figure everything out :)

    @skully0815 — Thank you! :) I’m using a 7 x 5 grid here, with no margins for both height and width. Hope that helps, I know the Min Text widgets were a bit iffy to get set up.

    @dirtygoldfish – I managed to get it last night. I was having trouble with the wallpaper, it’s a bit strange in Android. Figured for Nexus 4 it has to be increased in width to 770px for the home screen, and added some 385px (770/2) on each side. That made it fit perfectly. Oh, and I forgot to hide dock with 7×5 grid, so that messed it up for some time.

    I got rid of the icons in the wallpaper and instead used icons for my apps (icon pack: SMPL White Theme Go/Nova/Apex).

    For weather I started off with BeWeather Free, but may get the Pro version to be able to choose other Icon Packs. Couldn’t quite get it done with UCCW (perhaps just since I do not have much experience yet) or Eye in Sky just right.

    For the Agenda, instead of Android Pro Widgets I went with Simple Calendar Widget which is free, and enabled me to have a list of upcoming calendar entries instead of just one.

    Still: Absolutely lovely theme! Now I need to think about a suitable lock screen :)

    Great work!

    @skully0815 — Glad you got it figured out! If you’re really set on using Eye in the Sky, try turning on resize all widgets in your launcher settings, that’s how I got my 1×1 widget to fit properly. And the APW widget is scrollable (thank god lol). Thanks again, and good luck on your lockscreen!
