Don't suppose there's even a chance of getting the text to fit within the boxes on this skin is there? Really annoying in the Basic skin :)

Yes, but it will literally take making new designobjs with X/Y/W/H set appropriately.

When making new skins with replacement designobjs, a new top level category the same name as the skin is made, "LCARS" and the replacement designobjs are placed there.

So I finally went through the wiki on how to install HADesigner. I downlaoded everything I needed and I followed the steps on the wiki... but I am getting the following message when I go to launch HADesigner:

Code: [Select]
ERROR [HY000] [MySQL][ODBC 3.51 Driver]Access Denied for user 'myusername'@192.168.80.254' (Using password: Yes)
My other problem is when I went to create my system DSN I had a large list of options to choose from. I did end up choosing MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver.  I assume that is the correct option.

Any advice?

correct driver.

However you didn't pay attention.

you need to do the following on a mysql console:

Code: [Select]
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON pluto_main.* TO myusername@192.168.80.254 IDENTIFIED BY 'password';

be sure to specify that password for the system DSN in windows.

In mysql, but you can do it from the command line as follows:
Code: [Select]
mysql -u root -e "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON pluto_main.* TO 'myusername'@'192.168.80.254' IDENTIFIED BY 'password';"You may have to adjust mysername, 192.168.80.254 and/or password to suit your needs.

Cool, Thanks.. that seemed to do it. It opens now but I don't see any of my icons pulled in. I will watch the video casts before going any further. I just haven't had time to do that yet.

be sure to select the appropriate skin from the skin menu.

So I went back and watched the Screen casts for HA Designer. Note that I did not watch everything but most.
I did not see from the screen casts I viewed where to manipulate font type. How do I change the actual font after I have downloaded and placed the font in the appropriate folders on the core and MD's?

The font panel is broken in Designer, and must be manipulated manually in mysql.

The font information is stored in the Style and StyleVariation tables.

Take a look at how they connect together, and if you need more explanation, reply back and I'll walk you through it.

Just to jump in with a question here.  If a non-standard font is used for this UI then rolled out, will regular users such as myself that don't manually install this font end up seeing nothing at all or some best guess font replacement?

nothing will be seen at all. Depending on the font, we will probably package the font as part of the skin package, providing the license allows for this.

I am most likely going to need you to walk me through this if you don't mind.
I am very new to manipulating anything in a database and frankly I don't even know where to start.

Also, I logged into my web orbiter this morning and noticed that my text is all big and wonkey... It wasn't like that before, Could there have been something I did in HA Designer to cause this? I don't recall saving anything.

Well, I'm not at my console, so I am doing this off the top of my head:

First, do you want to do this via the mysql console? or do you want to install the MySQL query browser (on mysql.com's download section)? and do it there?

Which is easier?
I am inclined to say browser.
I am not at home anyway so if another time is better then I can wait.
I am just logging in remotely from work and making changes to files via ftp.
Thats how I have done all the designing thus far.... kinda slow but it seems to work out pretty well.
