Desktop Screenshots Thread - June 2012

Postby vrkalak » Mon May 28, 2012 9:52 am

REMINDER: from the Forum Staff:

Please continue to use clickable-thumbnails linking to the larger image -- to help those with slower connections.

Many image-hosting sites will automatically generate 'clickable-thumbnails' for you, as well.

An example of the BBC code needed is below.

Code: Select all

[url=http://link.to.your.fullsized.image][img]http://link.to.your.thumbnail.image[/img][/url]

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The forum now has an option to resize images to 320x240 pixels using "rimg" tags.
This gives a large enough image to display clearly but doesn't cause a problem for those with slow connections
You can insert a pair of such tags with the "rimg" button, which sits rightmost on the row of buttons above the text field where you type your message.

Upload your image to an image hosting site then paste the URL of the "Direct" or "Download Image" link between the rimg tags.

Code: Select all

[rimg]http://link.to.your.image[/rimg]

This posts on the forum a 320x240 pixel clickable image which links to your original-sized image.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Thank you - for your continued support of LinuxMint.

Precise with Cinnamon (Odin theme) and custom AWN dock - yes I like simple, clean desktops :D

Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Just LMDE with GNOME Shell and a nice and hidden wallpaper, kinda NSFW but I covered it up for safety.

Loving the theme-ability of Mint Cinnamon thus far. I can't keep my hands off it! However, I think I'm now settled on Spearmint (gorgeous!) with Cairo and a couple of minor tweaks. I like lighter themes, and wanted to capture some true "mintyness". :D

Did you edit the Cinnamon theme to make it white instead of grey? Do you mind sharing the code?

Hiya Dry Lips! No I'm no coder! I just installed the Spearmint theme from the Cinnamon website here - http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/themes/view/77. It's my absolute favourite theme, with Glass-Shell a close second. :)

Ok, thanks man! I'm going to download it straight away... However I think that the theme's are written in standard CSS, so it's easy to tweak them to your own liking! :)

What theme is that you're using? Also, any issues with combo box colours on firefox etc with it? Love dark themes but finding one that plays nice is a pain.

as far as the theme it's mayls-unisex, the gray one. as far as dark themes in FF, create a folder named chrome inside /home/(your name)/.mozilla/(whatever the default profile is), and save this code as userContent.css inside the chrome folder. restart FF.

Code: Select all

input {
border: 2px inset white;
background-color: white;
color: black;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

textarea {
border: 2px inset white;
background-color: white;
color: black;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

select {
border: 2px inset white;
background-color: white;
color: black;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

input[type="radio"],
input[type="checkbox"] {
border: 2px inset white ! important;
background-color: white ! important;
color: ThreeDFace ! important;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

*|*::-moz-radio {
background-color: white;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

button,
input[type="reset"],
input[type="button"],
input[type="submit"] {
border: 2px outset white;
background-color: #eeeeee;
color: black;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

body {
background-color: white;
color: black;
display: block;
margin: 8px;
-moz-appearance: none !important;
}

Thanks for that, I'm sure I've tried the .css thing but it didn't work. I'll try when I get home again though.

One last thing, I notice that theme is a gtk3 theme, I thought MATE could only use gtk2 themes? :?:

I'm confused. :?

it comes with both gtk3 and gtk2

edit: the .css file works on every Linux distro I have.
