Apps Menus seems to be the No1 issue in Gnome usability. Version 3.12 will try to make things slightly better.
A new Gnome goal is about to bring more pleasure to our eyes and further improve our user experience.
GNOME Videos 3.12 will be a totally different application than 3.10 ..but a small detail attracts the attention.. flat tabs?
An early preview of the new aggregate menu planned for GNOME 3.10
Here are some mockups of the upcoming Sound Recorder application!
One of the most controversial features that is being discussed since Gnome Shell 3.4 is back again…
Those who are following GNOME latest designs have already noticed there is something completely new in latest GNOME mockups ;)
How to select a different background for lock screen? Maybe for 3.10!
If you have some neat design idea about GNOME, Live is the right place to place it, and make it sure that devs and other people will see it!
There is a nice Search in Calendar, by Reda, a support for two batteries and plugged devices in Power Panel, by Allan and some mockups in Gnome Maps, by Andreas. Keep on mind that these are just early designs that may never arrive in GNOME the way they look now, or the may arrive at […]
GNOME 3.8 will offer a new search mechanism to the system (local + cloud) through the Shell Overview. While this work is not completed yet, it seems that has a lot of potential to become something really good. The Search Providers enables us to pick the locations that the system will search for files, while […]
Unicode characters are getting started to substitute the conventional text in GNOME, leading at -least in theory- in a more clear typography. There is a long discussion about it in Desktop List, after Nautilus set to use Ellipsis; this is not just about Nautilus, G-C-C also uses Unicodes, since GTK has now a better support for Ellipses. McCann […]
Ellipsis or three dots character (…), is a core part of any User Interface Design and indicates to the user that additional information is required before the associated operation can be performed. Ellipsis is a Unicode Character (0×2026) and benefits controls like buttons to have more clear typography. It seems that Gnome just now adopts […]
Privacy Panel arrived today in GNOME Control Center, and is one of the three new Panel (Privacy, Search, Notifications) we will get on the next GNOME. But there is also a re-designed Power Panel, and there are many improvements for Wacom, Users (added History Logs), Wireless, Bluetooth.. Instead of writing down the new options, I […]
It has been known that GNOME 3.8 will support a GNOME 2-ish environment through extensions. What wasn’t clear is if that option would be included in Gnome Control Center (similar to Fallback) or in Gnome Tweak Tool. Neither will happen. GNOME “Classic” will start up a separate session, and that means we can choose it from […]
One major bug in the GNOME 3 design is the way that GNOME Shell handles Modal Windows on Overview. Currently GNOME cannot display Modals and that has proven confusing in many cases. Well GNOME Shell 3.8 hopefully will fix this! Speaking of GNOME Shell, the changes and awaiting patches are many, and we can only […]
Switching between Applications is one of the core functionality for every Desktop. While Gnome3 does this perfectly with choosing Apps through Overview, some complains have raised against the <Alt+Tab/Key Above Tab> functionality. Florian Müllner today wrote a patch that brings the classical Alternative Alt+Tab Functionality in parallel with the existing one!
Was about a month ago when Stef Walter proposed in Gnome Whiteboards the user interaction and expectations of sandboxed applications. App Sandboxing is about “properly” isolating Apps from the core system. This is how you can achieve the maximum privacy ..and stability of a system. Allan Day sets some general goals for Sandboxed Apps, where Alexander Larsson […]
Fry just came to Gnome from Windows! Okay, this is a typical reaction for new comers, but Gnome will try to make things better starting by 3.8 release that will arrive next March. Three projects are currently under development towards to make Gnome more friendly to new users. Initial Setup, a Getting Started quick documentation […]
