Note: I have only done this on Kubuntu 12.04 x64, 12.10x64, running KDE 4.8.4, KDE 4.9.2, KDE 4.9.3 so anything other than this I can not say for sure will work. I would assume as long as you have the dependencies met it should work but this is just a guess. As Always make sure to back up your stuff before trying anything new like this!

Blender Tips #2It took me a long time to upgrade to Blender 2.6x as I was really used to my good old Blender. A way to make friends with new software is to explore possibilities as much as possible; here, some of the cool stuff I found (may include old stuff I never noticed before).Blender Tips #22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't be afraid of scripts!
Blender includes many useful, reliable, user friendly scripts. Fearlessly, go to user preferences > add-ons and try it out; next to each script, links to online docs are provided.
Two scripts I always enable:
- Dynamic spacebar menu. This will especially please blender-sauruses as it brings back the spacebar function from Blender 2.4x and earlier: a convenient tools menu.
- Copy attributes menu. With crowded scenes, it will happen that you want to modify many objects at once. There is 'copy to selected' in Blender UI (see below). But the copy attributes menu does more - for example, it allows copying modifiers and/or constraints from the active object to all s
How correctly install GDIPPHi, i receive a lot of messages by people who want install GDIPP( cause GDI++ is crappy!!), so here is the good way:How correctly install GDIPP4 years ago in Personal More Like This
➊ Install GDIPP 0.7.6 in Registry( not in services, you will see it during the installation) , download: http://code.google.com/p/gdipp/downloads/list
➋ Copy the 2dll's in "C:\Program Files\gdipp" to "C:\Windows\system32"( for 64 users: 4 dll's: "sytem32"( for 64 bit dll's)+"syswow64"( for 32 bit dll's) ), like: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/423903436372Capture.png
➌ Restart( done)
Edit ( 12 oct 2012):
Now, i use 0.9.1 version, it works better and no replacement of dll needed ( only install it and go..!), if you use Firefox or other: uncheck "material acceleration..." in Firefox ( or other) options!!
If some characters look a little craps in some applications: make an exeption in "C:\Program Files (x86)\gdipp\gdipp_setting.xml" with your notepad.

LiteStep and Windows 7 x64 : running them bothInstalling Litestep on Windows 7 x64LiteStep and Windows 7 x64 : running them both4 years ago in Personal More Like This
You need to download some required libraries in order for Litestep to run on
Windows. The libraries are called "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables"
otherwise known as vcredist.exe. What you will need are the 2005, 2005 SP1,
2008, 2008 SP1 to run properly (it is what the Litestep installer will be looking for)
If you currently develop with Microsoft Visual Studio (Express, Web Developer),
whichever version, your libraries should already be in place; though checking
for updates is a good idea. For good reason, I also recommend looking for
"Sec ATL" updates, they contain patches and fixes for possible security flaws within
Microsoft's code source.
I know it sounds funny, but you need to get the x86 (32-bit) and the x64 (64-bit)
installers for this reason: The Litestep program is by default, 32-bit architecture,
however the 64-bit update package (0.25 Alpha and greater) will be a patch after
you install Litestep. The 32-bit libra

Note: after installing a new main version of KDE you must recompile BE::Shell

2. Be sure you are willing to learn new things and read the wiki!
3. Install dependencies and what else we need (if not already done):
on Debian or Debian based distributions (Ubuntu, etc)
(If you previously installed Bespin should already be present)
4. Okay, now we do what the wiki taught us:

How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win7A lot of people ask me how to make TrueTransparency play nice with Windows 7.How to (sort of) get Truetransparency on Win74 years ago in Personal More Like This
The short answer is: You can... well sort of.
Here are the general problems (I'm going to assume people with Win7 are on the 64-bit version, or Win7 x64).
1) Explorer windows are not skinned (or any 64-bit programs for that matter).
2) Explorer windows skin, but the toolbar is completely transparent.
First, you will need both TrueTransparency x86 and x64.
For your convenience, here is a zip with both (x64 can be hard to find): http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7100381/TrueTransparency.zip
To skin all windows, you will need to run both the TrueTransparency.exe in the TrueTransparency x64 AND TrueTransparency x86 folders.
At this point, all windows should be skinned (with the exclusion of "special" windows like Google chrome, Command Prompt, GIMP/Photoshop, Task Manager, etc.
You may notice that the explorer toolbar is completely transparent. There are two workarounds for this.
One involves removing the too

If you dont know the rules of the forum (official and unofficial), the regulars will happily eat you alive. With this in mind, I asked the forum regulars to give all the n00bs some friendly forum advice. Dont say we never did anything for you.
*Note: Every forum is different. While this advice may be helpful in other forums, it was created with the Deviants (General Discussion) forum in mind.*
Ask people to give serious replies only, stop replying please, or just be nice. It wont happen, and youre much more likely to get the opposite.

The build-dep command will install all the build dependencies for nautilus.
In nautilus sorce folder you just downloaded, navigate to: src\file-manager.
Find the file named: fm-desktop-icon-view.c
Open with your favorite Text Editor and find the line:

Here's some tips that may not get you a consistent spot on the front page right away, but that will definitely help getting some watchers and friends, whether you already have some, or not.
First, let me make clear that this is only about 'good' attention – if you just want, say, a certain pageview count, there are probably better ways. This article is for those who would like some people to take them serious as an artist and to actively watch them.
Also note that you needn't follow all of the tips below, but it's recommendable to follow at least 3 of them. Just one or two will not usually get you very far.
So here we go! :iconeagerpee:
Submit art regularly.
Try to find a balance between quality and quantity. Personally I think it's best to submit one or a couple of dev

Breaking the HabitJust curious, but do you ever tell your parents or other friends that you have a "social life" online?Breaking the Habit4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The other day, I told my mother and my sister that. I told them that that was the reason why I am on the internet so much after getting into an argument with them. And that I lied about a few things about why I'm trying to send letters to friends that "I know". They suspected that I have been socializing on the Internet more than in real life, and that they are scared that I may be hanging out with the wrong crowd. I assured them that deviantART is, in general, not like Facebook, Myspace, or Youtube. My mom and my sister said that they were upset that I lied to them to cover up the fact that I do indeed talk to people that I've never met, but they do not mind now that I talk to you guys and trust every word that you write. I am older now, and I am smarter about the Internet than I was when I was about 11 or 12; I know what I am doing.

Many of you have been in this community for a long time, but whether you’ve just joined or you’ve been a member since day one, this is your first impression of the new DeviantArt.
Change is not something that we take lightly, because it affects our collective identity. It was important for us to define who we are and what we’re made of at our core before we changed anything. We all have our own understanding of what that means, but the process of getting that core story down on paper took almost a year.
The result is “Bleed and Breed Art.” This is our center of gravity and our reason for getting out of bed in the morning.
It is the guide and the justification for everything, including our business partnerships, the development of the new app and the design of our new ide

Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and YouI've been beating my head against a wall working on a new suite. The hardest, and most tedious thing has been making the skins resizable. It involves a lot of simple math, and trial and error. Over the course of the next few Workshops I'm going to share some of the things that I've learned about resizing skins, as well as other cool things to do with position formulas and dynamic variables. They'll start off pretty basic and work towards more complicated topics.Rainmeter Workshop: Autoscaling and You4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I keep seeing taskbar skins that fit only one specific desktop resolution. It's possible to make a skin fit any resolution, and usually it's fairly simple. A decent grasp on simple algebra, geometry and arithmetic helps greatly though. The taskbar below fits any resolution. I'm assuming that you're somewhat familiar with Rainmet
