I'm currently using an Aviary branch build of Thunderbird, dated 20040603, and it appears to have the new EM and TM functioning. Where can I get themes for this build?

I guess there are no compatible themes, because I have not found it,too.

Please test these out for me and let me know if they work. I'm still using TB 0.6, but they should work.

iCandy Jr works, but the theme manager won't let me use the theme. I have to edit chrome.rdf manually and set the selectedSkin lines to icandyjr for it to work. Having the same issue with Firefox, and I only use iCandy, so I cannot tell if it's a FF issue or a iCandy issue.

Weird.... I don't have a version of TB or FF that uses the theme manager, so I'm not quite sure what the problem could be. Maybe some of the other themers can chime in on this?

Same here. The theme installs correctly and appears in the TM but I can't seem to select it to make it appear. Is this a bug with the theme or the Thunderbird TM?

I just confirmed that Sky Pilot Classic works. I did a local install via the old Theme Options tab, though.

Hmmmmm, after fiddling around a while I managed to get Atlas to enable, but now the EM and TM are completely blank and all XUL controls absent. Either the 20040602 Thunderbird Aviary build is severely broken WRT the EM/TM or your theme is broken ;)

EDIT: JFYI, Atlas also breaks the EM and TM on Firefox trunk builds as well, even though they don't do anything yet.

Okay, I've just done a diff run on TB's 20040602 Trunk and 20040602 Branch (Aviary) theme files.

Ugh! There was a mass update of the License Block in most of the CSS files but other than that, most of the changes were minor. One thing though, the Aviary theme now includes the new directories under mozapps for Theme and Extension Managers.

ok, I didn't have the new folders underneath mozapps in there... I put the folders in there for Apollo -- would someone mind testing this out please?

Whoa! It installed okay (showed up in the Theme Manager just afterwards) but when I exitted and restarted TB, Theme Manager only shows two theme entries; the default theme and a mixture between Apollo and Sky Pilot Classic (it has my icon but displays Apollo as its name.) Selecting it only brings up SPC.

Good thing I backed up my TB profile just before testing it :-)
