After a break with making icons, I'm back.
Hero of Allacrost - another one
The last of the Penumbra trilogy has been released for Linux. Also they have an offer for Linux and Mac users only, all 3 games for $35.
Why Kubuntu you use?, Mandriva is nice :D ....Lex
Mandriva doesn't work on my computer. Have tried to see if 2009 like my computer. It doesn't.
Just an update to this thread if ...
What ever YaST is using, why doesn't it show a theme?
Because gtk-qt engine can't render that specific theme? What are my options then?
Use another theme? ;)
Couldn't it be qt gtk2 convert instead of gtk2?
Is Yast using GTK2 or GTK2 widgets?
Common problem with compiz which AFAIK will be fixed some time spring 2009.
What you can do is to if KDE;
Then launch the game.
If it works you can build a script to turn off compiz, launch the game, when exiting the game it will start compiz up again.
Another solution is to use fusion-icon, not sure if it works in KDE, but it works in Gnome.
So A.I., when can we see your new desktop of the 8.10 release? I always enjoy your excellent taste in desktop colours and styles!
Properly soon, but I'm thinking off to make complete guides to set them up exactly as mine, maybe making a script for it.
8.10 is a great release. We got alot of positive feedback :)There's already a lot of talk, if picking xorg 1.5.0 and thus breaking (ATM) the prorietary 3D driver for all ATi cards, plus many nvidia ones (up to 5XXX series) was a wise move.
IMO they should wait for ATi/Nvidia to come with a solution, and backport 1.5.X at some time. Mandriva did not pick xorg 1.4.2 for 2009.0 randomly, after all.
So far it havn't been a problem with xorg 1.5.0 and the drivers.I'd rather have the latter - and Ubuntu is not a good distro (for me, anyways - though it may be for others).
then it's good there's almost a distro for every taste out there ;)
AAAAAAAAHHHH! Too late!
That's a huge xorg setup :huh: I guess Suse not using Hal for hardware yet.
What happen if you do;
Is the driver for your video card working properly?
lspci cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
AFAIK, you need to restart X before the cursor theme can take full effect, I'm not sure only changed cursor once and that have been 2 years ago.
Then I guess a newer version is on the way. ;)
Ryan â€œicculusâ€ Gordon has released the Linux port of 3D Realms and Human Headâ€™s id Tech 4 engine shooter.
I guess it's the eye of the beholder when it comes to what looks good.
to really liven it up install kde4 (kubuntu, opensuse, arch) beats the pants off the rest
I havn't seen any Desktop screenshot that have beaten a Gnome Desktop yet, in early days, yes. But that isn't true anymore with all thet stuff you can get to Gnome and GTK2 these days.
My pleasure ^_^
You can make a cool Desktop without compiz; Here's one I made without running Compiz (well it was before compiz and beryl time);

No, compiz. The fake shadow on the lower bars are from gDesklets. Then I filled up upper bar with some usefull good looking desk applets.
You can try with this one (a mac panel image which give some depth on your Desktop;
With some GTK2 themes (depends which engine the theme is build around). You can drop an image into the panel, so the panel uses the image as panel layout.
I know that themes build on aurora (GTK2 engine) can do that very well, though it says it's the slowest engine, but best looking IMHO. Otherwise I like to use themes that build on pixbuff.
If the aurora engine isn't available in the repo, you can get it here; http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aur...e?content=56438

You want your root permission applications to have the same theme as you run as a normal user and want it to change when you change themes, icons, fonts on your user account?
su ln -s /home/USERNAME/.themes /root/.themes ln -s /home/USERNAME/.icons /root/.icons ln -s /home/USERNAME/.fonts /root/.fonts
Only work for custom made themes in your $home, not for themes installed globally.
This may not be a major eyecandy;
Making Audacious (music player) looking good;

The game needs -devel package of libsdl1.2 libsdl-mixer1.2 libsdl-image1.2 libgl1-mesa libglu1-mesa besides compiling tool.

Is KDE3 more functional than KDE4?
in Art And Design
At the moment yes. But KDE4 improve hastly. So it's just a matter of time.
