This error:

Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory 96x96/action of theme HumanAzul2 has no size field

Is due to an 's' missing at the end of line 12 in HumanAzul2/index.theme

It's the big honking line that lists a bunch of directories with sizes. It ends with 96x96/action which should be 96x96/actions

Unless the download link (via that awful file hosting site) is just not updated yet, this problem exists in the 06-12 update. - Jun 12 2006

It's also following the GNOME HIG, which stats that buttons should be some number of pixels from anything else, including the edge of the window (12 or 16, I forget). - Apr 14 2006

heh, close ;)

You don't need to have .themes/ in there either. Just run the command in the same directory as the theme directory so you only pack up your theme by itself with no parent folders. This is fairly standard practice.




$ cd ~/.themes

$ tar cvvfj Ubuntulooks-Orange-smooth.tar.gz Ubuntulooks-Orange-smooth




What you seem to be doing is along the lines of:



$ cd $HOME

$ tar cvvfj Ubuntulooks-Orange-smooth.tar.gz .themes/Ubuntulooks-Orange-smooth



Since tar always packs with whatever path you enter on the command line.



HTH - Apr 07 2006


I've seen this a few times lately (maybe the others were also your themes) but there is no real reason have the tarball unpack with usr/share/themes/ directories. If you develop the theme in your ~/.themes/ directory, you can just pack it up directly and let people unpack it in their own ~/.themes/ directory without any problems.



Just my $0.02.



Nice adjustments by the way :)

Yeah, don't ignore it after all :)

I had thought that the Human theme was actually in the artwork package, which would place it under the CC license unless otherwise stated.. but Human is indeed in gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks, so it is indeed GPLd. - Mar 13 2006

1) This will never be a built-in feature of Nautilus (decided long ago)

2) You might be able to accomplish this with nautilus extensions.

3) If someone wrote this as an extension, it would make a fair number of people happy.

The scrollbar grabbers are very hard to find, maybe if the scrollbar was #f0f0f0 or something a little darker than the background it would be easier to pick out.

All in all, very nice though. Thanks for your time and effort. - Jan 08 2006

It would require writing new applets to get the panel similar to this one (as far as the pager/clock/sound/etc goes), and that's pretty much what it will take to get a change like this into gnome.

Personally I think it's very nice. - Jan 07 2006

It would be nice if there was an option to set the width of the terminal by characters. I think it is pretty common in the geek community to have a 80 char wide terminal (which is what I would like to do).

Fantastic app though, I love having the FPS style terminal available :) - Dec 18 2005

Nice work.

Personal opinion, I like the gradient used on tabs and buttons (convex), I think it would look good of the menu item hilight used a similar bevel (currently it looks concave, like Bluecurve).

Again, nice work. - Jan 16 2005

The problem is the tarball structure, you should tar up the theme direcory directly. Eg, you have:



Ubuntu-Etiquette/Ubuntu - Etiquette/



The first directory only contains the second directory, and should be removed so you just have:


Ubuntu - Etiquette/

Howdy,

I've been getting konq crashes using this style. This happens on two occasions: when the popup window opens on loading http://www.washingtonpost.com/ and when I have konq open and switch from another style to kalloy. This has been happening for all versions of kallow (1-3).

Here is the washingtonpost.com traceback, I'll post the other traceback when it happens again:

After using rpm2tgz on it, I unpacked it and it contained:
