And the name is…

Hello you all! Thanks for comments on my previous post. I’m a very encouraged artist now. :-)

I’ve selected the best name for the Simon clone: Garfunkel. Thanks to Christian Sasso, who suggested the name. Do you like it?

garfunkel-svg

For those who wants the SVG, checkout it from the gnome-edu module at GNOME Subversion repository.

I’m working (slowly, because I have not many time) on the code and I’ll release it as soon as possible.

Dear Masters of the Coding Art,

What is the best way to draw the SVG (please keep in mind I’m writing a game) into the widget? Using LibRSVG and GdkPixbuf (as in Monkey-Bubble) or using rsvg_handle_render_cairo? Thanks for your very welcome help.

Another name for GSimon

The new (temp) name of GSimon is Genius. I’m still checking for legal issues related to this name, but I think is a good name for a Simon clone.

Also, I left the direct drawing on Cairo to use librsvg (which can bring up different themes for the game). I’m not a good artist, so what you think about the default theme?

genius-default-theme

Comments are very welcome. I need an icon for Genius too.

Bugsquad wiki pages remake

Dear Bugsquaders,

Looking at these two messages on the Bugsquad mail list, I think it’s time to work on a rewrite (or a little organization) of the Bugsquad pages on the GNOME Wiki.

We need suggestions which can be sent just replying those messages. Also, we need volunteers to do that work.

Let’s make the Bugsquad rock more and more!

Dark GNOME (definitive)

Dark GNOME

HOWTO:

It’s Clearlooks based and I’m using Tango icon theme.

Feel free to mail me (subject: “DARK GNOME”). I’ll send you the theme file (tar.gz) and the user-stylesheet.css (to make browsing easier).

user-stylesheet.css

Dark GNOME

Also, if you´re using Ubuntu, change the notification theme to GNOME default:

~$ gconftool -s --type=string /apps/notification-daemon/theme standard

or just change the key value using gconf-editor.

That’s all!

Dear GNOMErs:

Can I have a “http://www.gnome.org/~brunobol” space to keep some files?

Back to GNOME Foot.

Dear Ubuntu developers,

Please!!! Give us back the GNOME foot into the GNOME default icon theme. I’m not asking you to change the Human theme, just to keep the GNOME theme with the foot! Please! :)

Vincent, Wouter, Jakub: About Dark Themes, I made my choice:

  • Darklooks((gnome-themes-extras)) (I changed the blue color of the selected items for #99B0C6);
  • Tango icon theme (great contrast);
  • That wallpaper.

Dear Lazyweb,

Is there a way to not change things in browser (Epiphany) when using dark themes? UPDATE: I want to keep anything as using a light theme.

Making a black GNOME

Hello!
As I have many comments on my previous post, I’ll try to explain how to make a good black theme:

1. Choose a beautiful and simple wallpaper:

My wallpaper

2. Choose a beautiful theme, and change its colors:

bruno@reginaldo:~$ cat .themes/GNOME\ Black/index.theme
[Desktop Entry]
Name=GNOME Black
Type=X-GNOME-Metatheme
Comment=
Encoding=UTF-8
[X-GNOME-Metatheme]
GtkTheme=Glossy
MetacityTheme=Glossy
IconTheme=gnome
GtkColorScheme=fg_color:#fffff46eea13,bg_color:#444444444343,text_color:#ffffffffffff,base_color:#54a554a554a5,selected_fg_color:#ffffffffffff,selected_bg_color:#1ad71ad71ad7,tooltip_fg_color:#000000000000,tooltip_bg_color:#fffff1f1bebe
CursorTheme=default
CursorSize=18

3. Finally, pick up a complete and simple icon theme. I suggest GNOME default or Tango icon theme.

Dear lazyweb,

How can I post pure HTML on WordPress? I’ve been tried many ways, but WP always fill my post with <br> , &lt and &gt. Drivel give me an error message when I have links into the post.
