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 - Nautilus1 year 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

How to use Network-Manager in BE::ShellIf you use Networkmanager and multible network connections in BE::Shell it could be that you are missing an applet for it.How to use Network-Manager in BE::Shell11 months ago in Personal More Like This
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!

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 410 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

The Devil Is In The DetailI'm taking my time on the Smoother Plasma theme, trying to get the more finer details right everywhere and making sure it looks right for KDE 4.10.The Devil Is In The Detail10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here is the add widgets dialogue.
Here are the tasks.
Of course the details need to be smooth so I've paid attention in keeping the theme looking smooth all round and consistent. Hope you like it so far.
Changes to Zuki* projects.Zukitwo has been updated to work with 3.6. Plenty of new and old bugs plus regressions so far. Also some larger changes to certain parts of the theme.Changes to Zuki* projects.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Zukitwo-Dark has been scrapped because of lack of motivation. Gnome 3.6 is the worst Gnome release so far after all. (Apart from 3.0.)
Still not decided what to do with Zukini and Zukiwi. I like my latest creations more than Zukitwo, so maybe I'll just scrap all of them and create something new instead. (Once 3.8 is released maybe.)
I also think there are some Ubuntu specific bugs that I have no idea how to fix. I didn't take a closer look. No styles for the 3.4 components that are used in Ubuntu.

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
