Nicest KDE I've seen in a while.
...and De Loused is still their best album, IMO..... have to go back to the De Facto and ATDR days for similar energy :)

Thanks.

I think De-loused is probably their most ambitious album, but for listenability (actual word?) I'm partial to Bedlam.

Nah... Octahedron is their most easy going album to date - mostly because it is a good 30 minutes shorter than their usual album lengths (*sad-face*).

And I've always regarded Amputechture as their "Holy grail" album, as - like the Monty Python film - it takes motivation to sit through it all, but it still has the most cult classic rhythms/melodies in one album compared to the rest of their material put together.

Take Day of the Baphomets, for instance...

Over the last week, I've repeatedly stumbled over the single most infuriating Firefox bug I've ever encountered.

http://img718.imageshack.us/img718/6217/flabagastly.jpg

Menu is attached to the window on the left. However, menu hovers over the window on the right. If, hypothetically, I were to click on a menu item, in which window would it open: the one on the left, or the one on the right?

I'll give you a hint: it's not the window you'd logically assume.

I think I need to scrounge up my mozilla account details and scour bugzilla.

I made the panel icon myself, but this is actually just a fairly minimal gnome underneath.

Got the theme here:

(I would not advise using the autoscript to install, I just installed manually.)

Note: This is just for those of you who want giggles with a Xp theme. Here is the menu icon I made. Ask me to delete if that breaks any rules.

Windecs are kinda obese, but everything else (icons, panel, GTK) is awesome.
Nice font as well ;) (can't believe I actually used the wink emoticon... must be the alcohol talking)
Edit the OBT to make the highlighted area match the icon colour and it'll be perfect (send it to me if you do, btw)

Yeah most of the themes I've tried don't. But this one does. Must be the flatness. It's how the decorations behave in gnome by default though, I claim no credit for the setting, just luck. :lolflag:

@koleoptero,

Well, it has very few features. Only a library, a playlist and a browser the way amarok used to have, and good last.fm integration. But nothing else after that. It's only the first release though. And for such an early stage it's surprisingly stable (I encountered absolutely no bugs). I love the interface and it imported my whole 34k songs in less than 10 minutes. That's faster than any music player ever.

It shows great potential as far as I see.

EDIT: It doesn't have an equalizer and it uses xine as a backend like amarok so the sound is good enough. It's late though, I haven't been able to test it extensively as far as sound goes.

I've also seen many a Linux desktop look just as bad (IMHO), if not worse, than those examples.
On a personal note, I would not want my desktop looking like that even if I ran MS Windows.
I'd rather it look something like this (http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v465/Digapony84/Feb10.png?t=1266062060) (not my screenshot, btw)

Oh, and install a few preferred programmes.


It`s such a pain having different sized screen when it comes to showing off those Desktops eh :p


My own probably aint changed very much at all since the last time i posted a Desktop Screenshot, which was quite a while ago now.
I mainly use a laptop just now, which currently has a b&w picture of my daughters on there and i`m not sticking them on an Internet forum for all & sundry, even if it is Ubuntu forums.

Or with the smaller 19" flipped vertical.
149170

I had planned on buying new HD screens of the same size but the more i thought about it the more i realized how totally pointless it would be.

When i first ever set Twinview up 2 or 3 years ago though i was forever losing files off my Desktop....they`d be in my Desktop folder if i looked but not on the desktop itself. It wasn`t until spinning that damn cube one day that i realized where they were hiding.

You could save some time and get better precision using Perl (or even python):


#!/usr/bin/perl -l

my $sum = 0;
my @ints = ( 0 .. 999 );

sub fac {
my ($n) = @_;
if ($n == 0) {
return 1;
}
elsif ($n < 2) {
return $n;
}
else {
return $n * fac($n-1);
}
}

foreach (@ints) {
$sum += 1 / &fac($_);
}

print $sum;
Or you could save even more time by using gcalctool's built-in constants.

I've heard of it. I just have no idea what retweeted means.
In a nutshell, reposting something that you got from someone else's "tweet" is called "retweeting". On InterfaceLift there's a share button labelled "retweet", which is how I passed the wall on to my (20 or so) followers.

I resisted joining Twitter for the longest time, but this past week I decided to join and use it as a way to share links without having to let them sit around on my ToBlog list. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by some of the tweets I read from a few of the celebs I'm following. Kevin Smith tweets his **** off, but Alyssa Milano has some of the best tweets I'm seeing.

To add bling? :)

To be fair, `xcompmgr -S` brightened up my Desktop when I was using Openbox. (Mostly because I had installed Ubuntu's notification system and preferred the translucent effect when hovering over it).


(edit): I've just switched to Nouveau drivers (the Xorg-Edgers PPA) and compiz works...

I had to quintuply check that nvidia wasn't running in the background, because it runs so smooth!

Yeah, that's what I don't get. It seems like it would be more fitting to use a compositing window manager in the first place. a *box plus xcompmngr is pretty common, but evilwm coupled with it seems like a pretty big leap. What's next, ratpoison + awn? I guess if a person wanted to do that, he has the freedom to, but I don't think I infringe upon said freedom by asking "why".


Why not?

what an interesting app. i tested in on the mona lisa and some parodies of the same. the original produced nothing but mona lisa references in the results. with some of the more distorted parodies, it would list the mona lisa as one possibility among some reasonably close guesses with some very far off guesses. it failed to recognize botero's version. (unfortunately, i think my wallpaper is too obsure. it may be from someone's website promoting his art.) thanks for the suggestion. i just got a droid, too.

Yea I started using uzbl the same time I started with wmii. Its awesome! Everything is so customizable and easily scriptable its perfect for me. I configured it to use vimperator keybindings, except with home row keys for following links instead of numbers. IMO theres nothing out there that can compare. I can browse faster with just the keyboard now then I ever could with a mouse.I highly reccomend it to tiling wm users.

I just realized this yesterday but uzbl when pronounced is supposed to sound like usable. I got that from a video on the website :)

my one feature request would be that you make a compact version -- it looks like there is already an elementary compact (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/elementary+Compact?content=119000) mod, would love to see a compact version of your theme. :)

Im still using 3.6 myself even though 3.9 is availible in aur. The only thing I dont like about 3.6 is the lack of xft font support. Terminus isnt showing up with xfontsel for some reason, so I had to settle for a different font on the window borders and statusbar. Its not too far off but it doesnt quite match.

Hmm, just tried but no luck.

On the arch forums theres a thread where somebody else had this problem and it turned out that he needed to add the font directory containing terminus to his xorg.conf, but I dont use and xorg.conf. I tried making one with just the fontpaths section but X wouldnt start afterwards. Ill probably spend some more time on it and make a complete xorg.conf later tonight.

The only time I saw fbgrab not work, it was because the current user (for whatever reason) didn't have the proper permissions for /dev/fb0. Just for kicks, see if it works for root.

The man page also explains how to get a framebuffer dump and create an image file therefrom.

In that case, hold a bitumen plate by your monitor for 8-10 hours. It will capture a mirror image of your screen. Use a Polaroid camera to photograph the image captured in the plate, and then scan the resulting photograph into your computer. Reverse this image file to the proper orientation using the GIMP. Then you will have an image file of your framebuffer.

http://omploader.org/tM3JqdA (http://omploader.org/vM3JqdA)

Linux systems are known for the number of systems that focus on minimalism. I do like the idea in theory, but its harder to implement than it appears. My linux system needs to be at the same level aesthetically and have the same functionality as Mac OS X or Windows XP/7.

The whole having to edit a file to change a background is overkill. I tried openbox but I can't stand it. People here post screenshots and theres nothing but a wallpaper. Like come on!

I like ubuntu because its easy to use but at the same time its very customizable which I like. Im not big like some guys here but I try to pick things from different places and try to make it work.

I need a good looking interface that has to be productive. Things dont just have to look good, they need to be there for a reason.

Windows has the programs under start>programs. Really quick to get to and tucked away nicely. Mac has the dock. Linux has whatever you want! Its really about finding what you like personally. After every install I remove apps I dont use. I think what anyone really needs is simply a nice theme, nice fonts, browser,music player, video player, file browser, IM app, torrent app, etc. The main stuff. Not a fan of all the work that you need to do in openbox to get things working because it has nothing installed :-(.

In my defence though, you talk about functionality being important, and my setup is functional.
Everything I use regularly (and a few things I do not) are bound to key combos, for example the Windows key and W opens Firefox, Windows key and T opens Terminator, I have no need to click through 3 menus to get to my most commonly used items.
For my less regularly used stuff a right click brings up the menu, that is customised to my more commonly used less regular programmes are within easy reach.

You state that changing the wallpaper is overkill in openbox, I find it quite simple: Windows key and T > sudo gedit ~/.config/openbox/autostart.sh
and I'm in place to change my wallpaper. In gnome it's about the same, minimise all windows, right click the desktop, select change background (I think) then the GUI editor comes up. Both probably take me the same amount of time.

The initial setup does take longer than your default Ubuntu install, but so I would imagine does setting up any DE from scratch, getting things just so are, as I think you said, one of the great things about Linux, and sometimes spending a bit of time at the start is worth it.

To back myself up somewhat, I have spent almost no time customising this install, and I find that I'm stunted, it takes me longer to get around my files and programmes, I haven't set up any of my key bindings this time, so have to rely on clicking the menu each time.
Personally I prefer the spartan looks and quiet efficiency of my openbox setup on my netbook, and when I get time I will look into properly customising my laptops install to maximise its efficiency for me. For now though I'm meant to be doing a shed load of assignment work, so I lack in official free time.

The rationale I provided:

Have you encountered the usage scenario, where a video has multiple audio tracks and subtitles and you find yourself spending entirely too much time opening menus and submenus, fumbling around for the right audio track and the right subtitles? Similarly, taking a 4:3 video source, setting it's aspect ratio to 16:10 and cropping it to 16:9, tends to require far more effort, than it should.

I propose a sidebar pane, with these features at easy access. Instead of opening the audio menu and a submenu, only to click one menu item, have the menu close on you and have to begin again, you can instead open the side-pane, with all these options listed as radio buttons in a persistent manner.

I've been wanting something like this in a video player for years.

"Linux" doesnt have anything. Gnome has the Applications/Places/System menus, KDE has the K menu, and Openbox and Fluxbox have the right-click menu.


Not a fan of all the work that you need to do in openbox to get things working because it has nothing installed
There are some out-of-the-openbox distros like Crunchbang (http://crunchbanglinux.org), which don't require you to do anything. ItJustWorks(tm). If you want to try Openbox but don't want to tweak everything to have a basic working system, Crunchbang is great.

It's why successive releases have added 'most used' lists and search boxes.

The whole having to edit a file to change a background is overkill. I tried openbox but I can't stand it. People here post screenshots and theres nothing but a wallpaper. Like come on!

hey, bub, my last ob screenshot didn't even have a wallpaper!

I don't have one right now. There doesn't seem to be a point in it when using a tiling window manager.

they can be ok when using a transparent or tinted terminal, but it has to be the right kind of wallpaper, and even then, it can get kind of annoying.

Am I the only one who uses Feh to set my Openbox wallpaper?

I hope not. I actually use a custom action in Thunar to do it (through feh of course). Renders Nitrogen utterly obsolete.

Liking the wallpaper, Berk.
Mind sharing?


Love the retro diagonal gradients and icons. Needs a less harsh black tone, though.

Created this mockup to accompany a feature request:

That seems pretty useful, especially for aspect ratio changing/cropping.
I tend to just use the shortcut key-combos for changing audio track and subs, though.
Decent choice of film as well.

it can also be added to the edit menu in gqview.
