Metacity Themes by IBBoard 5 comments

Thanks a lot for this!
But under the new Ubuntu 14.04 I can still see round corners inside Nautilus window - but not in other apps.
There is also a light line between title and tool bars in all apps, which disappears when maximized, meaning it's associated with metacity settings I guess.
And thirdly, I've got grey toolbar in non-GTK3 apps. - Apr 21 2014
So you've decided to put all color variations in a pack.

As a fan of the Blue theme, I wonder if there are any changes since 1.0? - Mar 24 2014

I think this nice theme is only compatible with Gnome up to version 3.4 or 3.6 -- at least not with 3.8, which I have.
Any chance of making it compatible with Gnome 3.8 (e.g. Ubuntu 13.10) and Gnome 3.10 (e.g. Ubuntu 14.04) as well? - Mar 18 2014

I think it might look better to have the Unity Panel (unlike the XFCE panel in the screenshot) in the same color as the titlebar because when you maximize a window the Unity Panel also becomes its titlebar and the present bgcolor is inconsistent with the rest of the window. - Mar 12 2014
OK.
I've recently started learning git and I find it very useful for such purposes.
The commands I use most - after cd to my local subdir for the git repository concerned - are:
git pull
(copies/updates all files from remote to local)
git add <filename>
(stages the file, adding it to the list of files to be committed)
git commit -m 'Updated'
(Updates the file staged, adding the message "Updated")
git push origin master
(copies/updates all files from local to remote) - Feb 17 2014
First I thought there was no Unity (top panel) support yet, but I now realize that there is, but it's just that I don't prefer having a black Unity top panel with light grey GTK and Metacity themes.
The reason is: when you maximize a window under Unity the top panel becomes also titlebar and menubar (which used to be light grey a moment ago ;-)
Are you sure you want to keep this or would consider making Unity panel the same as titlebar & menubar? - Feb 17 2014
It seems you haven't updated the GIT repository to the latest version 1.0 yet:

~/.local/share/git/rhoconlinux$ git pull
Already up-to-date. - Feb 17 2014
I understand...
I'll look forward to seeing Unity (top panel) support first and then a Dark version ;-)
Or maybe two Dark versions?
1) Title, menu, tool, tab bars, etc. dark, but main window areas light
2) All dark - Feb 15 2014
Perhaps it might be a more minimalist approach to use the same blue color for the buttons both in light and (future) dark version?
It's up to you ;-) - Feb 15 2014
Could you please also do a dark version like this?

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MediterraneanShiki?content=162798 - Feb 15 2014
git clone https://github.com/rhoconlinux/Blumix.git '~/.local/share/git/rhoconlinux'
ln -s ~/.local/share/git/rhoconlinux/Blumix ~/.local/share/themes/Blumix

UPDATE COMMAND:
cd ~/.local/share/git/rhoconlinux/Blumix
git pull - Feb 15 2014
I wish this very nice theme had Unity (top panel) support as well.
Re: buttons; I think a dark version of legendary Shiki buttons could suit this theme better. - Feb 15 2014

GTK3 Themes by Xylon 5 comments

The icon theme in the screenshot suits your GTK theme very well; I think you should better mention it in the description as well.

Secondly, I would love to see this very promising theme featuring blue (and maybe some others) as well as the current red/magenta as selection/hover/etc color. - Jan 28 2014
Watcher -- Zenity Progress Window

Nautilus Scripts by marc41 8 comments

Unfortunately this seems too complicated for me at least at this stage.
I couldn't find out how and where ProZilla stores different segments of a file being downloaded. It creates a single file in the target location with the same size but I guess it's an entirely different thing.
All I've got is the information shown in the terminal window, and probably this is what I should rely on: "Total Bytes received XKb (Y.Z%)"
And also I just noticed that ProZilla terminal window may sometimes have different prompts which should also be addressed in addition to a progress bar, which seem to be beyond me at the moment.
So I should better hope that someone more skilled may take over and create a more complete GUI for ProZilla.
Sorry for taking your time, and thanks again... - Jan 15 2014
Watcher -- Zenity Progress Window

Nautilus Scripts by marc41 8 comments

Thanks...
What I have in mind is closer to the first scenario actually.
To provide more context if you're interested:
http://gnomefiles.org/content/show.php/Prozilla+Kaptain+Launcher?content=162866
Providing a progress bar could make a more complete GUI for this powerful download accelerator (apart from a non-functioning "--force" option of command-line proz). - Jan 15 2014

I guess it's not possible to have several progress bars simultaneously in zenity (e.g. displaying a multi-threaded download), is it? - Jan 13 2014
Ultimate Edition 4.0

GTK3 Themes by TheeMahn 15 comments

Thanks, it seems I haven't made myself clear enough: the point I was trying to make was the black stripe seen on your 2nd screenshot (chromium tab bar bgcolor), and I just thought that it might perhaps look better to have a little less contrast there by setting bgcolor a little closer to dark grey. - Dec 20 2013
Ultimate Edition 4.0

GTK3 Themes by TheeMahn 15 comments

As far as I can see this theme is the only one (out of hundred or so I've seen to date) that's closest to perfection indeed!

The only 2 minor areas I could find some room for improvement are:
1) Chrome/ium tab bar bgcolor could perhaps be a little closer to dark grey above and below it.
2) Synaptic packages marked for upgrade may perhaps look better with some other color combination than the present light grey fg on yellow bg.

Also, sometimes I personally feel I need a little bit more light in the main windows background, e.g. Nautilus, etc. and would very much appreciate if I could switch to a lighter version of this great theme.

Thanks for fixing the metacity issue. Everything seems very nice now, except light grey background color in toolbars of GTK2 apps like medit and a couple of areas in Synaptic toolbar.
I don't know much about theming, but perhaps you might like to see "Mediterranean Tribute" themes (e.g. "MediterraneanTribute Blue") concerning these two issues: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MediterraneanNight+Series?content=156782 - Dec 12 2013

GTK3 Themes by amitg 11 comments

It seems a little tweaking might be necessary for Ubuntu/Unity, but I don't understand how come Unity panel looks OK and Metacity theme for window title bar doesn't :-/)
I'll see if I can sort this out, but the issues with GTK2 apps and Synaptic are beyond me... - Dec 10 2013

Good idea, but I wonder why I don't see dark titlebars as in the screenshot.

Also chrome/chromium tabbar, toolbar, etc., toolbar in GTK2 apps like medit... a couple of gray areas in Synaptic toolbar... - Dec 10 2013

Probably this will help debugging. Error messages for the two files mentioned above are, respectively:

Text Editors by keithhedger 44 comments

Interesting...
I've just found out that KKEdit simply refuses to open/display certain files (html, txt, etc.) either via Open command or from the command line.
For instance:
"Anthem for Doomed Youth - popular First World War poem.html" REFUSED
"War Requiem - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.html" ACCEPTED
"google.csv" REFUSED

KKEdit

Text Editors by keithhedger 44 comments

I couldn't get this working either in a Nautilus Script named "Open with KKEdit" or in Terminal, although it opened the file(s) from the menu or toolbar.

I've also noticed that KKEdit .desktop file in /usr/share/applications doesn't have "%F" parameter at the end of the Exec command either.

Following this, it even refused to Open any file from the menu or toolbar.

Maybe it will go away after logging out and in again, but there should be a bug here.

Yes, this worked and I've finally managed to install KKEdit!

THANKS A MILLION ! :-)

After I've moved my scripts (external tools) like Sort, Sort Unique, Change Case, etc. from medit to KKEdit this weekend, I guess I can safely remove jEdit and medit, and start using KKEdit as my default text editor :-) - Dec 07 2013

Text Editors by keithhedger 44 comments

I wouldn't mind installing webkit but how?
I guess the name of the debian package is probably libwebkit-something, and I have already "libwebkitgtk-1.0-common" and "libwebkitgtk-3.0-common" installed.
Perhaps I should also install "libwebkit-dev", and probably I don't need to install "libwebkitgtk-dev" or "libwebkitgtk-3.0-dev"? - Dec 07 2013

Thank you very much for the update.
I've decided to give KKedit a try; but I have some installation/dependency questions. Here are the closest matches I can find in Synaptic Package Manager for some Debian installation requirements:
1) gtksourceview-2.0-dev = libgtksourceview2.0-dev ?
2) unique-1.0-dev = libunique-dev ? (ver. 1.1.6)
3) ctags = exuberant-ctags ?
4) glib-2.0-dev = ??? (I couldn't find any reasonable match)

By the way is "Find & Replace in all open documents" feature present already or is it in your ToDo list? - Dec 01 2013

Thanks for including these to your ToDo list; I'll look forward to it.

ATI CATALYST FOR UBUNTU (deb files)

Various Gnome Stuff by NikolaiRach1 1 comment

I've struggled for weeks to get my AMD/Intel Hybrid Graphics cards working (i.e. using the high-performance discrete GPU from AMD Radeon instead of the power-saving integrated GPU from Intel) and I've finally succeeded by following the steps explained here:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/205112/how-do-i-get-amd-intel-hybrid-graphics-drivers-to-work
Is this what your DEB files do?
Can you explain a bit what they include and what they do?
Do they merely contain the RUN file downloaded from AMD site and start running it?
Or do they care of some pre-install and post-install steps as well?
Thanks... - Jun 29 2013
