About

wal_steam
is a tiny program that is meant to work with either
wal
or
wpgtk
, by reading the colors they generate and making a color theme for a slightly tweaked version of Metro for Steam.

Wal is a little program for linux that creates a terminal color scheme based on your wallpaper (in addition to being able to set the wallpaper and a few other interesting features).

Wpgtk is based on wal, but with the added feature of being able to generate gtk themes with the colors and bring a nice simple ui to wal.

Metro for steam is a very nice looking skin for steam. We also add the community patch which makes the skin render well on linux.

Install

Note for Windows users: You're going to need to install python 3 then imagemagick first. Then search for command prompt, right click it and open as administrator, then run the pip command below but without the sudo part.

Packages

Python PIP:

sudo pip3 install wal-steam

Arch Linux AUR:

yay -S python-wal-steam-git

Manual

Pre-install: Make sure Wal or Wpgtk is installed and working.

Install:

git clone https://github.com/kotajacob/wal_steam.git

Post-install: See the "Using" section of this readme.

Using

Make sure you've run wal or wpgk at least once to generate the colors and set the wallpaper.

Note: On some distros, notably Ubuntu you'll have to run the command python3 instead of python or you'll have an error about failing to import urllib.request. Additionally, OSx users may need to use the system certificate store (outlined here).

If you cloned the repo all you need to do is run the script with python 3 from wherever you downloaded it.

Example:

wal_steam -w

  wal_steam.py (-w | -g | -u) [-d]
  wal_steam.py ( -s ) ["/home/kota/bin/custom_steam_install/skins/"]
  wal_steam.py (-h | --help)
  wal_steam.py (-v | --version)
  wal_steam.py (-f | --fonts) ["Ubuntu, Ubuntu Bold, Ubuntu Medium, Ubuntu Light"]

Options: -h --help show this help message and exit -v --version show version and exit -w use wal for colors -g use wpg for colors -u force update cache and config file -d apply HiDPI community patch -s "/steam/skins" specify a custom steam skins folder to use -f --fonts specify custom fonts -a --attempts specify the max number of patch download attempts (DEFAULT=5)
