Ubuntu Usplash Smooth

Usplash Themes by volanin 48 comments

I have Ubuntu 8.10 32 bits, I just wonder why during boot-up, the usplash suddenly disappear, and somthing shows up in the console like this:
fsck n.n.nn 10/11/2008"

with xxxx a "random" number (1073, ...)

I don't know what it is...

I remember Dapper's usplash, there was some text under the usplash logo (from the console), this was great, but since Edgy, it is no more there. Is there any way to reactivate it.

And one last thing about usplashs in general: are those built for Hardy still compatible with Intrepid ? - thanks - Nov 18 2008

Nice pasting ! This is an original one regarding the many fashion "all vectorial" wallpapers here and there.

But I feel something that sounds wrong with this picture. Especially with the sea, it can clearly be seen that you used two images and put them "as-is" in the scene, so joints between parts become visible.

And from the beaches of Bretagne (France), I have never seen such a clear horizon ^^

Distrofy Gimp Plugin

Gimp Splashes by sleepynate 15 comments

Ok guys, I'm glad to annonce this script work perfectly with windows, and without any change of the Python script. Maybe tons of other snake-made scripts.

The only (and minor) side-effects are cancelling the script is done in 4 steps, and distro-images are visible in gimp recent documents.

I've just tried it, great work, fun and easy ^^ - Apr 15 2008

Distrofy Gimp Plugin

Gimp Splashes by sleepynate 15 comments

If it is only windows-incompatible because of home directory, this is not really a problem for me...

But there is something wrong with GIMP + Python + Windows...

I found a portable-edition GIMP full of stuff to make some tests ( Yeah, I'm French.

First of all, install Python 2.5.2 and its dependancies. Too easy... (this may hide something...)

At GIMP startup, crash with: "Entry point 'g_assertion_message' not found in libglib-2.0.0.dll" (when parsing


So, I update GIMP dll with the latest GTK+ bundle (those in GIMP bin/ folder and common files). works now fine, but I can't find a way to add/run scripts and show them in menus.

And by the way, the splash screen is not shown any more... Bug ?

I just post this as a reference for those who dare to try... I know it's not "" here...

After having borrowed a war mace for... you know what.. I've learn just one useful thing: I'll use your script with my good ol' Ubuntu. I know I can make it work !! One day or another, I can wait ^^

Thank you for this front-approch of the evil basilics' world :) - Apr 14 2008

gtk2-engine-pixbuf (Patched)

GTK2 Themes by walmis 28 comments

I tried to install it, and it kept asking for dependancies, and dependancies for those dependancies, and so on, until something happened and some file got screwed, because nothing that was gtk would open (it was a libg...something, I don't remember the name).
Is there an easier way to do it?

--> No, just install each package and xxxxx-dev packages as asked. Welcome to linux funny compliers world !
I suggest you to also install "colorgcc" and "colormake"
Use is the same as gcc/g++ and make, but it will output colored text. Use "colormake" and "colormake install", try this ^^

You need the gtk2 development packages installed as well probably names like glib2-devel, atk-devel, pango-devel, and gtk2-devel or whatever they're called on ubuntu.

--> Yep. I don't know all the names... they are usually named by the suffix "-dev" on Debian/Ubuntu. - Mar 27 2008
Black Vista Ubuntu background

Wallpapers Ubuntu by fredknex 16 comments

I REALLY don't understand why people try to "clone" (even partially), themes from oser OSes (Microsoft stuff, MacOs, ...). There was a time Linux was reserved to the professionnal domain only. But now, things have changed. With some distros like Ubuntu, Mandriva, SuSE, the penguin universe open its doors to geeks like most of us are here (errr... aren't we ? ^^), or peolpe that don't want to follow the group and become what in french is called a "bête mouton". So all these word to say nowadays, having Linux installed on its machine shoud be a proof of difference, of originality, and maybe, let's say intelligence. Yeah I know poor designers or newbies artists wanna practice pressing the big-square-automatic-copy-and-paste button. Come on... everybody can do better like this ! Why install linux if it is to clone XP/Vista/MacOS's GUI ? Why have the open source community worked so hard to find ideas of some great and uncommon style if you break this by just changing the theme and pressing "OK" ? Keep it in your mind, especially for those who plan to post something here... there could have damage. - Mar 27 2008

Hardy Theme

GTK2 Themes by Mariux 95 comments

That makes days I've been trying to improve your theme, with small operations with the screenshots. Maybe you shoud try what some shemes like these give inside a real Linux GTK theme:

Dark one:

Window borders: black, glossy (sorry for "vista-allergic" people here...)
Toolbar background: Maybe a green/yellow tint, not too saturated should do. Just try it, I don't really know for this one.
Window background: Mmmh, many choices for this one. Try with a mix of grey and yellow/orange (near #FFCC00, less bright)
Text: maroon, quite black
Highlighted text: BG: dark grey FG:orange
Scrollbars: black with gloss, tint with a very small amount of blue.

Bright one:
Window borders: same as existing Human Theme, maybe the hue factor could be nearer from yellow than maroon.
Toolbar background: black, with a little amount of green
Toolbar text: bright yellow
Window background: pastel tint, maroon/orange.
Text: black or deep grey.
Highlighted text: BG: very deep red, FG: bright orange
Scrollbars: I don't really know, I am thinking about twilight/sunset colors, but not too bright, they mustn't be aggressive to keep eyes focused on the main part.

Hardy Theme

GTK2 Themes by Mariux 95 comments

The color theme choosed is mostly great. Black for window borders, menubar and others, good choice, and nice buttons. But the light brown/orange (it's sort of intermediate tint in face) used for the windows background and "url bar", I can't help it, I doesn't like it at all. Althrough I'm used to non-standard color-schemes, mostly black/dark blue/indigo, I feel something is wrong with these colors.
I know part of Ubuntu's signature is to use such colors (and one of my first goal after Ubuntu's installation is change completely the theme ^^), but here, they simply doesn't fit together !
Uh oh, there... what am I seeing ? Some yellow folders cloned from some "other operating system" -koff-, and just slightly "hue/saturation"-ed ? Come on, be serious... Any distro of linux IS NOT intended to look like other os family, I mean Apple products and Windows especially. So I will ever prefer the "Humility" icon set from Gutsy among the default and Ubuntu-specific ones.
So... here is what I could say about it. Take this as a personnal opinion from a skin-maniac ;) - Jan 23 2008

GTK2 Themes by slawomir 19 comments

Definitely I like this one, even if I'm not a fan of "mutating" linux in some sort of windows imitation (especially the whole XP theme). But I just have to say some lil' things about it:

1. The "Times-like" font in the blue/green bar (top) doesn't fit much the rest of the theme. Some free equivalents of Segoe UI, Trebuchet MS and others would look great, I think.

2. The window buttons neither: (I may be wrong) they look like they were imported directly from another theme. Try to take the shape from the real vista buttons but without the "3D" effect behing them ;)

GTK2 Themes by ronin3 9 comments

Here's what I think.

First of all, I LOVE black and orange, it's my favourite color association.

- I read "Hardy Hedron" somewhere... it it a text generated by the system or one of yours you tweaked ? In the second case, think that many people can have older distros and may use this theme.

- Colors used: nothing to say, I like it!

- The gimp loading screen. Hey, nice! Except it looks like a little "empty" in the middle of it. And I don't really like the progressbar, it's too flat and too bright than the background. You could base your work on the SphereCrystal theme, for example.

- Menu highlighted items. WTF ? The item is blurred upper, and sharp downer ? Maybe a rounded border and a little touch of orange (opacity < 100%) would be enough.

- Buttons in Nautilus. I guess this is the main item you should focus on. Your efforts to make a clear brushed dark themes sounds great, but these buttons break everything. A little gradient above 'em ? ^^

Window borders, "taskbar" and others: great,don't touch them ;) - Dec 07 2007
