How to install covergloobus on Ubuntu 12.04+The PPA for CoverGloobus hasn't been working since Ubuntu 11.10, but this doesn't mean you can't use it in newer versions.How to install covergloobus on Ubuntu 12.04+3 years ago in Personal More Like This
If you are using Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, 13.04 or even Linux Mint 13 or 14 you can use CoverGlobus by downloading the .DEB package
This is version 1.7.3
Download DEB package for 32 bit system https://launchpad.net/~gloobus-dev/+archive/covergloobus/+files/covergloobus_1.7.3_i386.deb

Blackbox Tutorial - Part II: The PluginsOK, so u downloaded Blackbox, u ran ur fist session, u are happy switching styles - and then what? Most hardcore Linux Blackbox users will tell u there is nothing more - there should be nothing more. After all, Blackbox was created as a minimalistic shell. But u do want some buttons on the desktop, a clock, a system meter, perhaps, an audio player...Blackbox Tutorial - Part II: The Plugins11 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is where plugins come in. What started as a minimalistic shell with only two or three plugins, is now a different beast with over 60 plugins and more coming out each week. Plugins are basically little add-ons to the shell that offer many features - u take ur pick. Notice that Blackbox plugins are intended for Windows Blackbox clones only and do not work on other platforms or shells.
HOW TO LOAD PLUGINS
Very easy, if u use BBLean (which I strongly recommend). Right click on the desktop to bring up the menu and then click on Blackbox/Configuration/Plugins/Add Plugin. To load/unload pluggins, click on Blackbox/Configuration/Load/Unload.

OK, I have two sets of instructions for Blackbox - the short one and the loooong one. I am sure most people will read the short one, tho the long one is more detailed and safer. Here we go...
The short one
1) Dowload Blackbox for Windows. There are three clones: bb4w (http://www.bb4win.org), xoblite (http://www.desktopian.org/bb), and bblean (http://bb4win.sourceforge.net/bblean my personal favorite which I strongy recommend).
2) Create a folder under, say, c: named Blackbox. (clackbox). Unzip the con

The New Mobile Deviation PageThe deviation page on the mobile website has just gotten a huge uplift!The New Mobile Deviation Page2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
In uplifting the mobile deviation page, we re-evaluated what the most important functions and information on the deviation page were, and altered the page to present them in the most easily accessible way. From there, the deviation page was given a visual refresh for ease, clarity, and simplicity.
Features that were previously hidden and accessed by a "More" button can now be accessed without any page shifting, allowing the art to be the focus, and making for a seamless, user-friendly experience. More From This Artist becomes much more visible as well, encouraging viewers to tap through to see more of your art, and Featured Groups and other features are just a tap away.
In addition, a tab has been added so that viewers can easily watch or contact an artist from the deviation page, making it easier than ever to interact in the midst of your browsing experience.

As previously announced, a brand new version of AwOken color is available! I added more than 100 new colored icons, so I think you will be pleased by the new additions!
Moreover, I packed them up also for AwOkenDark and AwOkenWhite iconsets, in order to get ready for the upcoming release! As you can see, the colored icons are the same as the default iconset, but the non-colored ones change according to the either dark or white colorization.
Here are the links:
Simply extract them, and place them in your ~/.icons directory.
If you feel brave, you can also try the customization script (in order to change forlders and even colorize the icons with whatever color you want).
Simply type this in your terminal window (after having done the previous step, i.e. moving the downloaded folders in your ~/.icons

As most of you already know, .rmskin is the new Rainmeter skin file format introduced in Rainmeter 1.2. This new format makes it much easier to distribute and install skins and suites. However, many of you have been facing problems with creating .rmskin files. Worry no more, I've been working on a guide on creating .rmskin files and it's finally done.
View it over at rainmeter.net.
Even your grandma will be able to create Rainmeter skin files now
I sincerely hope and suggest that skin authors take a look at that guide. If you have a question, leave a comment below.
P.S. Distribute your next skin/suite as a .rmskin or trolls will eat you..

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 Win75 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

Blackbox for 64-bit Windows? No problemHows it going, guys?Blackbox for 64-bit Windows? No problem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just posting this to let you guys know that the old bbLean's native 64 bit edition works best on modern (64 bit) Windows 7 operating systems. Makes sense, does it? Probably, but I didn't think of trying it at first, because it's pretty old build. So I thought I'd share my experience
Let me start from the beginning...
I was very sad at first to find out that bbLeanskin window skinning plugin didn't work well on my new PC.
I tried multiple flavors of blackbox and bbLeanskin plugins (such as BlackboxXZ and bbClean). Had success with none of them.
Until I fired up bbLean x64 edition today (you can get it here: http://bb4win.sourceforge.net/bblean/)
For some reason I had memories of this version only skinning the 64bit applications. So I was thinking of running ShellWM and bbLean 64 bit. I was wrong however, it skins all windows.
As I mentioned this is a very old variant of the blackbox shell. I haven't so far noticed any problems however.
Works like a charm.

The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

Screentones Resource Compilation
What are they and where do I find them?
From the original article Screentone or are you...? by bakenekogirl!
What are Screentones?
"Screentone (or Halftone) is a technique for applying textures and shades to drawings, used as an alternative to hatching. In the conventional process, patterns are transferred to paper from preprinted sheets, but the technique is also simulated in computer graphics. It is also known by the common brand names Zip-A-Tone (1937, now defunct), Chart-Pak (1949), and Letratone (1966, from Letraset)."
A traditional screentone sheet consists of a flexible transparent backing, the printed texture, and a wax adhesive layer. The sheet is applied to the paper, adhesive down, and rubbed with a stylus on t
