I know it’s been long since I’ve posted stuff related to the paranormal, but I promise, I will post some new material over the weekend! But for the timebeing, how ’bout another Linux customization related post? I made another theme, Elegant-Dark Green aka Elegant-Matrix, which is another rip off of the hugely popular Elgant-Brit series, and it’s adapted version Dark Brit! This theme will satiate the needs of foks looking for a minimal, fully functional dark theme for the Gnome Desktop. Had been doing simulations last nite, and cudn’t sleep, so decided to relax by workin on ths theme! I uploaded the theme over at gnome-look as well. Will link the appropriate pages and walla and icon choices in my next post! Here are the screenshots of the theme in action!
Screen1: The Widget Factory
Screen 2: Theme in action
Screen 3: Another shot but with low resolution!
Here’s another desktop I made for my girlfriend. Used an existing theme from DA, changed the panel configuration and modified the Elegant Brit Macmenu Metacity as to suit the theme and here is the result! There is nothing new in this theme though!Click on the thumbnail for full view. As usual, will post the theme details tomorrow!
Sorry for the delay! Now here are the links for the relevant Elegant Evi files.
GTK2.0@Metacity – Elegant Evi@gnome-look
Icons – Powered Icon Theme by fratrip@DA
Wallpaper 1 – Desktopography
Wallpaper 2 – j3concepts@DA
Wallpaper 3 – Julian Mann@deb-art
Also take some time to go thro some of the finest walls at DA, customize.org, and desktopography for starters! You will find some amazing choices in addition to the aforementioned possibilities.
Fonts – Sometimes, the ideal font can make a lotta difference on the aesthetics! I used Aquabase in the previous screenshots, but I recently found out that Futura Condensed makes it much better. If you folks don’t find those fonts, just drop a comment. I will link them rite here as well!
I uploaded a modified version of the amazing Elegant Brit theme at gnome-look a couple of days ago. This theme is just a way of thanking my girlfriend who has been instrumental in turning my life around for the better. So I just modified the color attributes of the Elegant Brit theme to pink/purple and uploaded it at gnome-look. I am not a fan of pink in general, but with right choice of the wallpaper and icons, sometimes such themes do look good. I am uploading a few screenshots of the theme in action. Will link my submission page and wallpaper choices in my next post. For the moment, here are the screenshots! Click on the thumbnails for a better view.
I am embedding a couple of clips from I wanna Believe, which I found in UTube! They look interesting. We all know that the movie is a stand alone monster film, so the second clip where Billy Connolly explains what he sees is intriguing. Of course followed by the usual argument between Mulder and Scully! Thanx for bringing the movie back Chris!
Clip 1: Nothin special about this clip!
Clip 2: Billy Connolly clip
I can’t wait for the new film. The official preview show here is on July 24th but in German. The English version comes out on July 25th as well. I am planning to catch both the preview and the OV the next day. Since it’s a stand alone type story and Chris is at the helm of affairs, it should be way better than the first movie. As a tribute to X Files, I am gonna retain this header for sometime!
Sorry about the lack of updates for a long time! Was busy as usual and didn’t have no time for anything else! But thot of updating today since I’ve got some time on my hands rite now! Gonna begin by posting a screenshot of my current desktop setup! I have a heard from a lotta ppl that they like the screens I post here. So here’s another one! I uploaded this one over at art.gnome.org!
