I've had this odd, stubborn problem that seems to be related to the nouveau video driver and certain kernel builds: opening or saving full resolution jpeg image files using GIMP takes from 1-5 minutes and causes xorg CPU usage to reach almost 100%.This also occurs when using UFRaw to open Canon raw image files. The problem is not intermittent, it happens each time I open a file. Opening photos in the default image viewer works fine.This bug has vexed me on and off for the last couple of months, and seems to be triggered by a combination of kernel version and the Nouveau driver. I switched to Debian Squeeze from Ubuntu 10.04 because I was experiencing slow image open times in Ubuntu 10.04 (using the Nouveau driver).I did not experience the bug running Squeeze with the nv driver and kernel 2.6.32-3.
I did not have the bug running Squeeze with the nouveau driver and kernel 2.6.32-5 backported from Sid.I began experiencing the bug again after the Squeeze updates on June 14th (still running nouveau and kernel 2.6.32-5). I update daily so it's likely to be that day's updates which caused the bug to reappear.Just for grins, I installed the Liquorix kernel. The bug does not occur using kernel 2.6.34-0.dmz.10-liquorix-686 and the nouveau video driver.I have a Nvidia FX5500 video card. I prefer the nouveau driver to nv as my display seems to behave better. The Nvidia proprietary drivers are not an option because they produce X freezes when I am doing photo editing. The liquorix kernel seems to be working fine, but for long-term stability I'd rather be running a mainline Debian kernel.
i cant load PNG image extensions..i dont know what to do.when i pressed the button printscreen of my keyboard the system shows me an error dialog:"Unable to save screenshot to disk:The type 'png' is not suported."what is the problem??i try to rebuild libpng and libjpeg, but i cant solve the problem.
I've got a desktop "konsole" shortcut that works great, it has a "konsole" icon on it that fits well.
I've copied this desktop shortcut to a taskbar shortcut (via drag'n drop).
The result is a usable shortcut, but with a wrong icon image.
I've reproduced the problem three times for different apps and obtained three times the same icon (but the shortcut is however good).
If I open the configuration popup, it displays the correct icon ...
Indeed, I found a way to change the icon : I must modify the icon of the filetype associated with "desktop" filetype ... but after a reboot, all icons will changed Strange isn't it ? have a look of the screenshot
I have the Faenza Icon Theme installed, but it seems blueman-applet could care less. The applet's icon does change to use the Bluetooth application icon, but when it is active or disabled, it uses the icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/24/status/.
Part of the problem may be that Faenza has the status icon named bluetooth-active/bluetooth-disabled instead of blueman-active/blueman disabled. However, even if I rename these in /usr/share/icons/Faenza/24/status/, nothing changes. If I copy the icons into the first location mentioned and rename them, it does work. I don't have a problem doing this, but if I ever change themes, I'll have to do it again. Anyway I can make it use the icon theme?
I enjoy using vim from lxterminal with the black background, as well as awesome with its dark theme. I configured xfe manually to be darkish, and i use darklooks as a GTK theme to suit it as well. I could say all my desktop looks pretty dark, which my eyes thank me for. I also use redshift.But problems come along when surfing the web. Most web pages (including this one) have very bright styles. They are not the problem themselves, but switching from my windows hurts my eyes since it's a quick change to a much brighter screen.What would you do, either:
1. Use everything with a brighter background and putting the screen brightness a bit lower. (changing the GTK theme to clearlooks, using lxterminal with a white background, etc.)
2. Use some color theme with uzbl so that pages would look much darker. (like when you set manually the text and background colors in Firefox/Iceweasel)
I would myself go with the second one if most pages wouldn't look that bad when modified that way. For example, many pages use non-transparent images with white backgrounds on white pages, so if you change the background to black not only it looks horrible but it too is a mess.
I have recently installed Faenza icon theme and just began to notice the inconsistency of icon emblems being displayed by compiz.Attached image shows the emblems of Chromium, Nautilus and Comix are that of the default icons, while Empathy andCompizConfigSettingsManager displayed the custom icon correctly. The dock displays all apps' icons correctly though.The issue does not occur exclusively to Application Switcher (Alt+Tab), it also occurs with Scale (Super+W), Shift Switcher (Super+Tab).
I have d/l and am using an icon theme I got from gnome-look. I like all the icons except for a few, specifically the trash, and would like to change them but I can't figure out how. I d/l an empty and full trash icon. I looked in the /home/username/.icons/themename folder and found the two trash icons that came with the theme (they were in ~/.icons/themename/scalable/places). Changed the names of the ones I d/l and replaced those current ones with them.how to do this? I would also like to change the Menu Bar icon back to the gnome foot.
really wish to customize my GDM for ubuntu 11.4 but failed to do so.....therefore i decided to use alt. such as SLiM.....I could install it properly in virtualbox but when i went to do it on my real ubuntu 11.4 ......the screen stops at plymouth theme or goes blank after loading plymouth theme......then i read further more blogs and made changes and now even if i configure SLim the GDM starts no matter what i do .........
PS : I am new to ubuntu and dont have any knowledge about scripting programming and stuff....
I have just exported 3 png files out of gimp for a html document I'm working on right now, and they are all almost the same, except I need each to load when the user does something. So the first image will display on the page, and when a user puts their cursor over it, then it will load image 2. When they press it, it loads image 3.
When I try and boot my Debian computer I get the messages: Grub Loading stage1.5. Grub loading, please wait... Error 15 Is there any way of recovering from this - or is it simply a fresh install? I was attempting an upgrade from Lenny to Squeeze and despite a few hurdles it looked like it was all happening. Got the new kernel loading, and the new grub. It looked as though grub2 was working so I ran the grub-remove-legacy-support command (something like that) and now my computer won't boot grub or Linux.
I'm assuming the MBR on my harddrive is lost, however I don't know what state the partition is in. I'm guessing that maybe this has been lost as well. I tried a few tools from the Ultimate Boot CD but nothing here was able to re-install my grub or boot from any partition or even mount my file-system. I'm fearing the worst but would like it confirmed before I blow it all away with a new install.
I run Debian squeeze 64 bits, minimal install ( I started with Xorg, kdebase and kdm using netinstall ).In KDE settings I can change the mouse cursor theme, and so I changed the default theme ( which is Oxygen Black ) into KDe Classic. But everytime I logout or restart I,m back to the default theme?
after a downgrade of some packages du to a bug of libgtk2.0-0 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=633864) i have downgrade these packages.gtk2-engines-pixbuf_2.24.4-3_i386.deb libgail-common_2.24.4-3_i386.deb libgtk2.0-bin_2.24.4-3_all.deb libgail18_2.24.4-3_i386.deb libgtk2.0-0_2.24.4-3_i386.deb libgtk2.0-dev_2.24.4-3_i386.debAnd now, (After the downgrade, and after the bugfix) some apps don't have a gtk theme. Others apps have a gtk theme.Have a theme :Don't have a theme :
I was looking for some cool theme and I decided to try out Elementary. I downloaded archive, extracted it... but after that?
This is directory tree:
total 52 -rw-r--r-- 1 dagrevis dagrevis 212 Jan 19 2011 AUTHORS -rw-r--r-- 1 dagrevis dagrevis 191 Feb 2 01:10 CONTRIBUTORS -rw-r--r-- 1 dagrevis dagrevis 17992 Jan 19 2011 COPYING
I tried to drag archive to 'Appearance Preferences', but it "...does not appear to be a valid theme.". I tried to drag extracted archive - "...can't move directory over directory.". Once I somehow get it to count as installed, but when I clicked on it - it was missing 'Elementary GTK+' or something like that... Ohh, I tried to run file 'elementary', but after 'Run' button is pressed - it does ignore it. No further action or whatever. How to install this and, maybe, other themes for Debian 6.0.2?
P.S. Before that all I installed 'gtk2-engines-murrine' as well as said in 'guide' in DeviantART.
Im trying to use a Gnome theme designed for Ubuntu on Debian. Ive installed it into /usr/share/themes and the window border and close, minimise maximise buttons show up right but the other controls (buttons, scrollbars, progress bars etc) dont and default to the generic ones.
I know nothing about how themes work really but I assumed as long as both distros were using Metacity it would work?
I use Debian Testing with the default Clearlooks theme - (nvidia graphics, 32-bit kernel 2.6.38-2-bigmem) For some time i noticed Nautilus opening folders slowly. I did a gtkperf test and i was surprised that i got 12 or so seconds. Before i had ~3 seconds. Gtkperf test output with the libcairo2 version 1.10.2-6 (notice the high GtkComboBox and GtkToggleButton values):
I'm a recent convert from Ubuntu but of all the things I thought I could get used to, a different colour scheme is not one of them. Does anybody know of a way to import the brown colour scheme from Ubuntu 10.04 LTS into Debian Squeeze? I've tried configuring it as best I can by configuring the Clearlooks theme, but to get the brown panels/menus/titlebars with white writing that doesn't make all other writing white also must mean editing some config file(s).
Can I just copy whatever these files are from Ubuntu to Debian? I don't need the whole "titlebar buttons the left" caper, but the colours... I find easier on my eyes, particularly the dark brown panels, etc, since they're always staring at me and it's less of an eye strain to have a light colour "in my face" most of the time. Changing to a dark colour scheme everywhere is more trouble than it's worth, which is why I liked this theme in Ubuntu. It was dark where it needed to be but light where most apps/etc assume black fonts, dark blue hyperlinks, etc.
I am trying to install the mac os icon theme for awn....I made sure my theme download is for awn but when I go into my awn settings and select theme then install/browse to apply the theme file I downloaded nothing happens?
I recently upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04. I'm on a Dell XPS Studio 1640 and have Ubuntu installed in Virtual Box.A lot of the time when I log in the main menu goes to an old grey theme and windows are the same when opened. I think the Gnome theme is not been loaded correctly?Sometimes it is fine and has the nice default Ubuntu-Default-Dark icons.
I downloaded a lot of gtk2 themes based on the Murrine engine (the 0.90.3-2 version) but they don't work. When I select them with Lxapperance, it returns something like "gtkrc:91: error: unexpected identifier `gradient_colors', expected character `}'" for each line.
I've recently upgraded to gnome shell in experimental, and I like it so far. However, the window borders and themes look like how Gnome 2 did before you install gtk2-engines and some themes. Are there any themes in the repositories that I'm missing, or are they just not there yet?
I just installed successfully Wheezy, but I can't change my Login Window Theme.I put the three files (.desktop .xml and.jpg) in/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/),I think that my mistake is here but I don't know where to put the .xml file and the .jpg files.And the I edited the file/etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults.The background is well-displayed but the "theme" is still the same.
I went to:Configure Desktop > Appearance > Icons > Get New Themesand I chose a new theme by clicking "Install." Now it shows it as installed (has "uninstall" button) but when I go to "Customize KDE Icons" it doesn't show up. I tried logging out and back in but it still won't show as a choice (but it's still "installed" somewhere).
I'm slowly getting used to Gnome 3 and trying to give it a chance. After a few oddities (like it swallowing my Gnome Shell and Tilda invocations because I use Super in them) then I think I'm slowly getting used to it. There are still some things I miss from Compiz, but it has potential and I like some bits (the notifications and dialogs).I don't know what got upgraded, but my themes seemed to be working before yet today I've got the default Sonar rather than my darker Sonar theme with a fixed Chromium style. I've managed to change the titlebar theme, but I can't change the GTK theme or the icon theme.
Running "gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme" reports "Tango-green", but I still have the default icon theme and using Appearances only partially works.Running "gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme" reports "SonarLighter" (the menu bar is lighter to match the Uniq theme) but I'm definitely seeing Sonar.I've tried gnome-tweak-tool from someone's OBS, but various dependencies seem to be missing (first it bails with the wrong GI version, then I updated some other bits and tried again, but even after switching a dozen or more packages then it never started).
