Also want to say thank you to Lars and Tom for pointing me in the right direction for this info.How to Compile and install Bespin from source!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
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!
1: Make sure to install all Denpendencies:
Text Beside Icons on the Desktop - NautilusI've decided to re-write this little tutorial for those who are interested in a more "Mac Feel" on the gnome Desktop.Text Beside Icons on the Desktop - Nautilus10 months ago in Personal More Like This
First, open terminal and write:
apt-get source nautilus
sudo apt-get build-dep nautilus
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:
real_supports_labels_beside_icons (FMIconView *view)
Below it you'd see this line: return FALSE;
Change it to:
On GNOME3 and Nautilus 3.x+ search for the file: /src/nautilus-desktop-icon-view.c in the directory you just downloaded.
And look for this line: "supports-labels-beside-icons", FALSE,
Change FALSE to TRUE
Save the file.
Now start to compile Nautilus.
sudo make install
Choose Text Beside Icons in the Preferences.
Nautilus now should draw Text beside ico

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 You3 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

Breaking the HabitJust curious, but do you ever tell your parents or other friends that you have a "social life" online?Breaking the Habit2 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.
After that long talk, I got to tell them a

KDE 4Now KDE 4.10 has been released, the Smoother plasma theme I'm working on will be ready for KDE 4.10. There is nothing major but I'm just making sure it will offer some of the changes in 4.10, specifically new widget handle icons, adapted thin scrollbar design and some other bits that have changed.KDE 44 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's nice to work on themes that don't break in every release, KDE have done a great job in preserving legacy for theme makers throughout the 4 series and extending customisation, UI options for the users. KDE4 isn't a one size fits all design, so never does it force a hard coded desktop design that's half for PC's and half for other devices(i.e like GNOME3, Windows 8, Unity does), it gives you a desktop the way you want it. KDE also made good decisions at the start of KDE4 with Kwin and desktop compositing, you don't need a separate desktop if you don't have 3D acceleration, in fact KDE4 can use Xrender software acceleration, which gives you some of the features of 3D acceleration(like trans

Have You Met Zee Captain?Have You Met Zee Captain?8 months ago in deviantART Blog More Like This

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Eart

But you can take network manager from GNOME (tested in Kubuntu 12.04):
1. Install network-manager-gnome
2. run nm-applet from runner (or krunner (alt+F2) if it is not disabled)
that's it! If you test it in other distributions, please give me feedback!

My dear watchers and passersby,
Until half a year ago, I was one of those pixel-artists and spriters that used MS Paint (or its best Linux clone, KolourPaint) for everything. After all, to put pixels one after the other you don't really need anything else, do you?
However, while Paint is a useful tool for us because of its simplicity and focus on individual pixels, there was a moment when I thought: hey, why not look for a specialised, cross-platform, free tool to do my pixel-art? An alternative to Paint that doesn't belong to Microsoft and supports transparency? An alternative to KolourPaint that isn't so heavy and RAM consuming?
So I searched. I found quite a few pixel-art editors, but there was one that caught my eye since the beginning and has be
