Unfortunately, it looks like the MATE version of the window applets doesn't work in the new MATE 1.6--they've moved their panel from mateconf to GSettings. - Jun 07 2013
Hi! I'm using version 0.2.10, from the webupd8 PPA on Ubuntu Natty, and i've found that the compiz decoration hiding option isn't working for me--it simply acts as if it wasn't enabled.

Additionally, when i restart the gnome-panel, or reload the applet, the option appears unchecked. - May 27 2011

Sadly no :(

I'd love to do it, but GTK3's engine infrastructure is so massively different from GTK2's, that it'd involve rewriting the LighthouseBlue engine from scratch. (Twice, I believe, since the engine infrastructure has already changed during GTK3's life cycle)

And I'm not much of a programmer, so this is beyond my ken. - Feb 18 2013
Feature added. :) Thank you for the suggestion. - Jan 13 2011
Ah! Okay.. i thought that was what you meant, but i just wanted to make sure.

Anyhow, I happen to rather love that feature from Clearlooks, and it seems to be well within the spirit of LighthouseBlue (it was originally designed for maximum usability, IIRC, so the feature fits)

I've started hacking it into the engine, and it's mostly working, But the code is ugly and in need of a little refactoring. I'll see if i can't pretty it up any.. if not, i'll release what i have. - Jan 12 2011
Do you mean like how text entry boxes in clearlooks get a blue hilight around them when the cursor is in it?

That would unfortunately require some modification to LighthouseBlue, but i can look into how much effort it would be to add it.

If you mean the dotted line that appears around the labels of selected buttons and other widgets, that should work, and if it's not there it's a bug - Jan 11 2011
Maybe not 80s, but mid 90s :) It is intended to be retro, after all. I'm sorry you don't like it. - Jan 11 2011

Well, the GTK engine installs just like any other compiled program, so if you've manually built anything from source, it'll be a familiar procedure


First, extract the gtk-engines-lighthouseblue tarball whever you have other compiled code (I use ~/Devel myself)

Next, open up a terminal window and (assuming you're running Ubuntu), run sudo apt-get build-essential and sudo apt-get build-dep gtk2-engines

That will set up all the packages needed to compile this (which will probably be quite a bit of stuff if you've never compiled anything before)

Now, you're redady to compile. In your terminal window, cd to the directory you extracted the source tarball in (e.g. cd ~/Devel/gtk2-engines-lighthouseblue-2.7.5-eq1.1 )

now, run ./configure --prefix=/usr
Normally, you don't want to install stuff to /usr, but since this is adding something to GTK, you need it there.
That will print out a whole bunch of stuff, but assuming nothing errors our, run "make", and if that's successful, run "sudo make install"

And if nothing errors there, selecting the Neotif theme in appearance properties should look like the screenshots :)

If you need further help, please PM me, so we don't clog this comment section too much! - May 03 2011

The theme is one of my own creation called Neotif ( http://GNOME-Look.org/content/show.php/Neotif+(GTK+Theme)?content=137267 )

And i'm glad you enjoy the theme, though the credit really goes to Jimmac and the other Gnome artists :) - May 03 2011
I've fixed the desktop menu in XFce! At least, the icons all looked the right size in a fresh Xubuntu Natty VM.

I'm still not sure about the Emblems--Gnome has the exact same trouble. - May 03 2011
Thank you for the suggestion! That put me on the trail of a couple of icons missing from the theme :) Turns out they were hiding in Gnome-panel's package instead of gnome-icon-theme.

OldGNOME2 will now proudly display the classic GNOME 2 logo on your panel menu. :) - May 03 2011
Thanks for the feedback! I've run into the emblem issue, but i'm a little bit baffled when it comes to fixing it... I'll look into it a little more this weekend.


And thanks for testing this in xfce. :) I'll see if i can't get that fixed too. - Feb 02 2011
Re-uploaded! Thank you for pointing this out. - Jan 10 2011
I'm glad you like it! It's my own custom work, the Metacity theme is original, and the GTK theme is based on LighthouseBlue, so it's a bit tricksy to get working.

I'll see if i can get something into distributable shape in a couple of days - Jan 02 2011
Then i'm glad i could help :) - Oct 14 2010

I love the icons! The only (cosmetic) issue i have with it though, is the use of different scales for different icons. (i.e. the 'pixels' are 2x2 or some icons, 1x1 on others, and larger still. I personally prefer using a single pixel size on all icons.


Still though! I love pixel art, and love seeing more pixelly icons out there. Thank you for this. :) - Jan 11 2011

Thank you! For the shade button, for what it's worth, you have to make a metacity-theme-2.xml instead of/in addition to the metacity-theme-1.xml file. Note that you'll have to make code for all the other new buttons (pin, stick, and i think a couple others) too. - Jan 11 2011

It's really nice to have a gui to access Xrandr's scale, but out of curiosity, why a Nautilus Script? This sort of thing strikes me as the sort of thing that would make more sense as a hack to gnome's Monitors capplet, or a panel applet. - Nov 10 2010
