I love purple. I love it so much, I'm going to show you how to totally PURPLE your Ubuntu Linux desktop.
It will end something like this:

Here here's how you do it:


1. First, you go here (http://linux.softpedia.com/progDownload/HumanPurple-Download-46386.html) to download the purple icon set (HumanPurple) Save it to Desktop (Thanks to Vlad Albulescu (http://www.gnome-look.org/usermanager/search.php?username=mrkane27&PHPSESSID=21350e85a6e335e26934391525902c50) for making these)

2. Then, copy and paste each line one at a time into the Terminal (Applications > Accessories > Terminal). Replace [username] with your username.

cd Desktop
cp HumanPurple.tar.gz /home/[username]/.icons
cd /home/[username]/.icons
tar xfz HumanPurple.tar.gz3. Now go to System > Preferences > Appearence. Select the Human theme (if not already selected) click Customize.

4. In the Colors tab, select Windows: Background. In the Color Name box, put in #EED7FD

5. In the Colors tab, select Selected Items: Background. In the Color Name box, put in #BE5EFD

6. In the Icons tab, select HumanPurple.

7. That's it! you're done!

If you want the wallpaper that is in the thumbnail, click here (http://v-nessa.net/wallpaper/purple_orb.jpg). Right click on the image, and select Set as Desktop Background.

I thought it had something to do with Pidgin library (libpurple).

Also, wouldn't this be better in the Arty section or Desktop Environment forums? ;)

March 31st, 2009, 08:16 PM
Maybe the Arty section, but probably not the Desktop Environments section, because that means I'm talking about KDE, Gnome, Xfce, etc.

I have no problem with purple.

The problem is that where I live, if I were to show off a purple desktop people would (seriously) start to question my sexuality and I don't need that kind of attention.

honestly i think its stupid how things like colors are automatically thought to be feminine or 'homosexual'. this is a kind of attitude humans in general need to move away from

and besides, i like that shade of purple. i might try it one day. (saves howto)

You are probably right, but what I'm trying to do it make a version of the Human theme that is purple, Not make my screen explode with purpleness ;)

That reminds me of the album "Shades of Purple (http://www.amazon.com/Shades-Purple-M2M/dp/B00004R7NQ/)" by M2M (http://www.last.fm/music/M2M)

That [ex] girls band has nice sweet music.

The band disbanded and now they sing solo.

I like Marit Larsen (http://www.last.fm/music/Marit+Larsen) a lot :) All her songs are inspiring, some are funny, many of them are touching.

I'm afraid not. I didn't make the icons myself, I found them on gnome-look.org. I don't think they are available in blackish red.

yes!
I couldn't find red icons, so just use the default human ones.
Windows: Background colour is #FDE8E4
Selected Items: Background colour is #D62739
Hope you like it! If it's not red enough for you, play around with the colours until you get something you like.

Top of the screen in Ubuntu Linux (NOT Kubuntu, Xubuntu or Windows) there is a panel. There are three words. Applications, Places and System. Click on Applications, a list/menu will popup. Click on Accesories, another list. Click on Terminal.

OR

Press Alt+F2 on your keyboard, type in "terminal" and press enter.
