Why we need to fork GNOME Shell? Because GNOME Shell is all about choice –Linux is not - alex diavatis ;)
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!
If you open a GNOME Terminal and navigate @ Edit -> Profile Preferences -> Title and Command, there is a “Run Command as a Login Shell”option which is unchecked -at least on most GNOME Distros. This can lead in issues that are hard to be tracked by new users that using Linux just to make [...]
First off, Happy New Year to *Everyone*! Since this is the first post of the new year, I thought to put a fancy title ;) I don’t know if this is the best way to make things, but what I did was to use the best and most established technologies that are available today and making [...]
This is a small trick that SysAdmins do on servers, but you can take advantage of it in you home Linux machines. The following small tutorial will demonstrate how you can disable the SSH logins for the unwanted users. It will work in Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu, Arch, openSUSE and pretty much all machines.
There are times that GNOME Shell might get excessively memory consumption or get started to respond slowly, although these kinds of bugs have greatly reduced in 3.6. In this case you just can <ALT+F2> + “r” to restart it. Sometimes Shell can completely crash, and you might need to restart your PC to bring it back. Well, that [...]
The point for having an upstream GNOME installation built from sources is if you are going to build an extension, a theme or a GTK App and take advantage of all the new features of next GNOME. However it is also useful if you want to help GNOME to get better by submitting bugs ..or [...]
I am not sure that everybody knows that GNOME.org runs in a WordPress platform. Moreover the GNOMEWeb Theme for WordPress is available for download and it works fine with the latest WordPress 3.4.2 as for today. I just tried it and screencast the whole process.
Lately, Gnome seems to pay much attention in documentation and apart from the official -and huge- SDK plans, community contributors also help a lot by releasing various docs. This time is Carlos Soriano that printed a detailed guide how we can build extensions in Gnome Shell. And even if you don’t use Shell (Ubuntu/Mint), you can [...]
This is the 4th post from the “Making GTK3 themes” series. The older posts can be found here, here and here. Gnome 2 had some really great themes. And now we miss them with GTK3. Porting is not that much hard, but still, not that easy. But with some little tricks, you can ease porting [...]
This is a follow up post from the “Making GTK3 themes” series. The first post can be found here and the second post can be found here. So in the last post we went through the basics of the gtk.css and gtk.widgets.css files. Customizing the CSS file is up-to you. Pickup your Favorite theme and start [...]
Gnome Shell extensions are a great way to expand your desktop environment’s abilities and to shape it according to your preferences. Although enabling and disabling various extensions is an one-click easy to do thing, setting preferences for specific extensions may confuse you, or maybe this is the first time you hear that you can do [...]
This is a simple guide on how you can hack your Gnome Shell (just a bit!) and make one unique theme just for you. I used Adwaita as base because everyone has this (but you can do this in every theme), and I also used some Marvel images that you can replace with anything you [...]
This is the second post from the “Making GTK3 themes”series. The first post can be found here. We will name our theme as “Dream”. So create a directory named “Dream” under “~/.themes” and then create another directory named “gtk-3.0″ under “~/.themes/Dream/gtk-3.0″. All the files we create will be inside this directory.
Video editing is a complicated task no matter the platform and the experience that one may have on this sector. Fortunately, there are many available applications for the Linux platform that can do simple, or advanced video editing with Avidemux being one of the simplest. On this How-To, we will see how you can do [...]
Gnome Shell lets you search Google or Wikipedia directly from the overview. It is cool. Isn’t it? Did you ever wonder about how can you add your own search providers? It is not that hard. With little effort you can add your own search providers.
