Hopefully Scott will get 2.0 made into a deb file soon. However GnoMenu should show up in "Add To Panel" list when you right click on the gnome-panel and select that option. Make sure that all dependencies are installed. They are:

python
python-xdg
python-cairo
pygtk
python-pango
python-xml
python-numpy (recomended for gtk theme colors and some tab effects
python gnomeapplet (or in some distros "python gnome desktop") - (necessary when running on gnome-panel or in tray)
python-gconf (or in some distros "python gnome") (recomended)
python-xlib (recomended)
deskbar-applet (recomended) - Nov 15 2009

Various Gnome Stuff by technoshaun 5 comments

There is a program called epedermis that handles xsplash themes but currently it is experimental. However, it does show a lot of promise and could potentially improve how Gnome handles themes and appearance settings. It can be found here https://launchpad.net/epidermis/+download - Nov 08 2009

Various Gnome Stuff by technoshaun 5 comments

xsplash files are remarkably easy to make. All you have to do is make the graphics set. Not sure how to make a throbber yet but the swarm hover is really good for now. Anyway if you look in the archive files you will see all the files you need and what sizes. Even though you dont see any logos in my xsplash I still have the graphics files for them. My logo are just 100% transparent - Nov 08 2009

It is happening. This menu does exist now but will not be released until Nov 15th once Helder releases GnoMenu2. Helder and I are already using this menu to do some testing of GnoMenu2 features. No this will not be the default theme for GnoMenu2 but the layout of the tabs is definitely going to be used. - Nov 02 2009

I am not submitting this to be a default look for GnoMenu. However, Azenis is an extremely popular theme here and since I am the one who takes care of the GnoMenu theme for Azenis I wanted to show people what I had in mind.

I did post a layout design at the blueprints and this design is based on that. - Oct 30 2009

Telling Ubuntu how to authenticate the PPA

Now Ubuntu knows about the PPA. It also needs to know how to check the software hasn't been tampered with since Launchpad built it.

Note: This is not an endorsement of any of the software in PPAs. You must make sure you trust the PPA owner before installing their software.

Step 1: On the PPA's overview page you'll see the PPA's OpenPGP key id. It'll look something like this: 1024/12345678. Copy it, or make a note of, the portion after the slash, e.g: 12345678.

GnoMenu PPA overview site: https://launchpad.net/~gnomenu-team/+archive/ppa

Step 2: Open your terminal and enter:

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 12345678

Replace 12345678 with the key id you copied in step 1.

Step 3: Finally, tell Ubuntu to re-load the details of each software archive it knows about:

I played with that texture way back when and realized real quick it just gets annoying real fast.

Theme textures are nice when kept light but that is a bit much. Cut back on the texture and keep it minimal. You should also consider a different pattern.

In the directory where you unpacked the tarball open a terminal and use the command "sudo make install" and that will handle the installation of Gnomenu itself.

Now Right click on the gnome-panel and select "Add to panel..." and in the selections you will see GnoMenu select it and clack "Add"

On the GnoMenu button right click and select "Preferences". There you will see the controls to add and delete GnoMenu Themes for the Menu, Button and Icon sets. Click "Install" and then navigate to the themename.tar.gz file you wish to install and select it. Then in the drop down You can select the theme you just installed. (It will be the last item in the list as you just installed it.) click the "OK" and let GnoMenu restart. when the error message from gnome-panel appears select "Reload" and your newly installed and selected GnoMenu theme will show up. - Jul 10 2009

You're welcome. I really like your theme as well. You did a good job of porting it over. I wanted a good GnoMenu theme for it so I spent the last few hours working on it.

Sorry I meant section 10, wasn't fully awake this morning:

Paragraph 1 states what my rights are:

Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

Paragraph 3 sentence one:

You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or affirmed under this License.

In other words, yes he can require I give him credit for his original work, but he cannot restrict me from making any modifications to, or derivative works from. - May 23 2009
Kore2 Theme

GnoMenu Skins by technoshaun 16 comments

It wasn't the work so much as it was the GPL. As stated he cannot under section 5 impede my right to modify or make derivative works of the material released under the GPL and though his first requirement "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO:
Publish parts of my skin without giving proper credit." is a valid addition to the GPL the second one "YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO: Publish parts of my skin, as a completely new project, EVEN if you give credit." is not. Once he released the material under the GPL he automatically gave everyone the right to do what he said they could not do. Section 5 implicitly states that I, or anyone else for that matter, has the right to do so. Section 5 is the very essence of what makes the GPL work. I maybe the original creator of a work, but when I use the GPL on it I give the right to others to expand, modify, make derivative works and distribute them freely. I am not allowed to place any restrictions on that right. Section 7 allows to make additional terms so long as those terms do not impede on section 5.

It wasn't a matter of artwork, it became a matter of defending my rights to do what I was doing under the rights given to me by the GPL. - May 23 2009

Kore2 Theme

GnoMenu Skins by technoshaun 16 comments

I'm sorry but I WILL NOT back down on this. Original poster of the Kore Theme released all material, including art work under the GPL. This is the section that gives me the right to make derivative works of the Kore artwork:

10. Automatic Licensing of Downstream Recipients.

Each time you convey a covered work, the recipient automatically receives a license from the original licensors, to run, modify and propagate that work, subject to this License. You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties with this License.

An “entity transaction” is a transaction transferring control of an organization, or substantially all assets of one, or subdividing an organization, or merging organizations. If propagation of a covered work results from an entity transaction, each party to that transaction who receives a copy of the work also receives whatever licenses to the work the party's predecessor in interest had or could give under the previous paragraph, plus a right to possession of the Corresponding Source of the work from the predecessor in interest, if the predecessor has it or can get it with reasonable efforts.

You may not impose any further restrictions on the exercise of the rights granted or affirmed under this License. For example, you may not impose a license fee, royalty, or other charge for exercise of rights granted under this License, and you may not initiate litigation (including a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that any patent claim is infringed by making, using, selling, offering for sale, or importing the Program or any portion of it.

I have reported this GPL violation to the Free Software Foundation. Because the material is released under the GPL he CANNOT state that I cannot make modifications to his works because the GPL expressly gives me the right to do so. - May 22 2009

READ THE GPL DUDE.

You cannot use the GPL license on a project and then tell others thou shall not when the GPL explicitly states that others can. Especially IF the artwork in question was made from scratch following your design but was not directly copied from which the GnoMenu Kore and Kore2 themes were done because of design issues of KBFX themes versus GnoMenu themes.

All your projects are listed as GPL which gives me the right to copy and modify as I see fit, so long as I share any source code and artwork under that license if I distribute said changes WHICH I DO.

YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE GPL ON A WHIM. YOU RELEASE UNDER GPL YOU ARE BOUND BY THE GPL. - May 21 2009
