UPDATE: I have fixed bugs with the Minecraft, Deus Ex, and League of Legends Banners. Please download again!

UPDATE 2: ...and a bug with the JC2 banner. Fuck me. lol

I'm a guy who loves to display my games and so forth, but with the advent of digital gaming and distribution, I don't have boxes laying around that I can display. For some time I've been looking for something that allows me to display my games on my desktop in a way reminiscent of boxes on a shelf... or say, like the DDR interface, but never found anything satisfactory. So, I improvised and did it myself.

GameBanners is a collection of simple Rainmeter buttons created in Rainpad. The banners themselves are a combination of resources found around the internet put together in Photoshop.


This was created for personal use, so I don't intend to supply a lot of support. Nonetheness, if you need any help feel free to ask here and I'll see what I can do.

Steam games in this list are set up as Steam links. Non-steam games like Guild Wars 2 link to their respective folder paths. If you would like to link to a non-Steam game through Steam, follow these instructions:

1. In your steam library, right click the game and click "Create Desktop Shortcut."
2. On the desktop, find the shortcut. Right click it and select "Properties."
3. Under "URL," copy the entire line starting with "steam://" and ending in a series of numbers, which is the game's ID.
4. Right click the GameBanner you wish to change, and find the following line:
LeftMouseUpAction = !Execute ["URL HERE"]
5. Replace the "URL HERE" text with the URL you copied from the game shortcut's properties window between the quotes. Save, and exit Notepad.
6. Right click the Rainmeter skin, and click "Refresh skin."
7. You're done! You're also free to delete the desktop shortcut you created, if you'd like.

If you would like to create your own banners using this style, you may use the PSD file here: [link]

Minty Colors is a chameleon theme for Cinnamon. It can change colors according to the current GTK theme, current wallpaper or a user defined color.

Minty Colors will automatically create a file .minty-colors.conf in the home folder on first launch. You can edit it and set your preferences, for example, to set the color, there are different configurations, e.g.- automatic = derive from the gtk theme, wallpaper = according to your wallpaper (uses imagemagick to get color), other = use user defined color. The color can also be defined in the config file.

If Minty Colors fails to get the color from the GTK theme or wallpaper, the user defined color will be used instead.

After installing, start the Minty Colors background process from the menu just once. Minty Colors starts at login and whenever it detects a wallpaper or GTK theme change, it will change the color according to your preferences. You need to set "minty-colors" as your Cinnamon theme.

Linux Mint users can install Minty Colors from our themes PPA using the following commands,

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:satyajit-happy/themes

This theme replaces the default WinRAR icons with new Windows 7 styled ones. It also blends in perfectly with Vista as there are virtually no differences between the icons.

A readme is included for installing the exe icons.

These icons are 32x32 in size. If you would like larger ones visit my other deviation: [link]

Has been updated to no longer include the exes, as these were being reported as viruses.

Enjoy :)

Includes the standard blue version and the black XP mod by nevezen. - [link]
Well, the panelbuttons are the same in the blue and black one here. Smooth as they were supposed to be. :p

Metacity themes and start-here.png icons included.

Known issue: When you select the menu with the start-here.png icon you will see the shadows without alpha-transparency. I forgot to add that to the icons. :p

Wallpaper: Small mod of "One a day 2" by colossus72 - [link]

I made this out of boredom. So, yeah, my scanner is still shot to shit, and I can't upload any of my real drawings and artwork.
Partly inspired by David McChulloh's book and the HBO miniseries.

So, here is John Adams, second Presient of the United States and the voice of the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson was his best friend.
One of my favorite presidents.

Partly inspired by ~RafkinsWarning picture of Jefferson.

Well, on the 4th of July this year I submitted a Christmas themed wallpaper... so now, two days after Christmas, I am submitting an Independence Day wallpaper, yes I know I am all backwards!

Anyway... this wallpaper is of Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States and author of the Declaration of Independence.

Declaration of Independence from: :iconslevin28:

Thomas Jefferson portrait and signature searched online.

Made in Photoshop CS3.

I wanted to create something with an Ubuntu human color scheme. It turned out quite different though as I reduced the saturation of the colors.

May make some changes to the emerald theme as it only fits on some wallpapers - like the one that's included in the zip. :p

Font is AvanteGarde LT Medium.

Changelog

Quick update:
- Changed the panel graphics.
