Artwork & Screenshots / VSIDO XFCE splash screen
« on: March 05, 2013, 04:37:49 AM »
I wanted a splash screen for my XFCE desktop in VSIDO, but as there wasn't one, I decided to make one, and shore with all of you, the only people that really care about any of this lol, anyway, here's a screenshot of it in action, (it was a bitch to get a clear screenshot of a spashscreen)

Let me know what you all think of it, I have included a link to the archive with splashscreen in it, just extract it to your themes folder, and then select balou, and then configure, and you should have a list of themes in there, you will find it listed in there, select it, and it will be your XFCE splash screen.

Artwork & Screenshots / Geany Color Schemes
« on: March 02, 2013, 11:24:59 AM »
I don't know how many of you are like me, but I like to have a certain look to things, and when they don't look quite the way I want them too, well, I change them, case in point, I couldn't find a Geany color scheme that I though was just right for me, so I made my own, and figured, "what the hell, I've shared everything else I've made on here, why not this too" so I did. This is a dark color scheme for Geany for those that like that sort of thing, (like me), obviously it's called McLovin Custom, what the hell else am I gonna call it, I'm not all the original or intelligent, or creative for that matter, but I diverse.
Here is a screenshot of the color scheme in both the schemes config, as well as a lua config
            config file example                                  Lua config example
I have attached the config as it's just a little text config file, so it's not using much space, VastOne, if you want, I'll start hosting the files on my own server and just giving links to them, just let me know and it shall be done

Artwork & Screenshots / McLurriza theme
« on: February 13, 2013, 09:24:44 PM »
I made my own custom theme using the murrine engine, and thought I would just share it with everyone, see who likes it and who doesn't, here is a screenshot

and you can download it directly from this post, let me know what you all think. BTW, I'm using a customized RGBAmbiance-1 window boarder theme, so if you would prefer that as your window boarders, let me know, and I'll make a package with that one.
(Update)As promised, here is an updated archive with the window boarders/metacity/marco theme that I use, I have modified everything so it is all named McLurreza, so you can select just that and use it, and all should be good. Let me know how everything works for everyone.
(2nd Update added XFWM4, and OpenBox themes to the package)

Scripts / Family Guy fortunes for fortune-mo
« on: February 01, 2013, 08:00:53 AM »
Here is an archive with a bunch of quotes from "The Family Guy" for fortunes, so obviously, you must have fortunes installed on your system. I take no credit for finding these quotes, they came from the family guy quotes list in UberScript for X-Chat, I just formatted them lines to work in fortune-mod, and created the needed files for fortune to read them. To install them you just have to extract the archive and place all 3 files in the /usr/share/games/fortunes folder then, to use the the Family Guy fortunes, just type into terminal
Code: [Select]
fortune FG

For some reason or another they wont work directly as a /exec in irc, (at least not on X-Chat) so if you want use these in irc you're gonna have to make a macro, or in the case of X-Chat, (my irc client of choice) i use an "autoreplace" line, so I go to
  • Settings
  • Advanced
  • Autoreplace
click on "Add New", and you will a new shortcut/autoreplace popup and just set what ever you want your trigger to be, example, I use "FG", so in the box that says "*NEW*" I enter "FG" (no quotes),  and in the box that says "EDIT ME", i have "/exec -o fortune FG" (again, no quotes) here is a screeenshot of what it looks like in my autoreplace

I have found an issue when trying to install the proprietary Nvidia drivers, as the linux header files are in a non standard location in Vsido, (or it seems that they are in my experiences). The kernel.k file that is need for the Nvidia driver installer, is located at /usr/include/linux, but the installer is looking for them in the standard /usr/src/linux/include/linux directory. The workaround for this is NOT to use the --kernel-source-path variable, as it does not work for some reason, the best way that I have found is to make a symlink in the /usr/src directory by issuing the command
Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/include/ /usr/src/linux/ as root, that creates the needed path for the nvidia .run file to be able to find the needed the kernel.k file. Hope this helps anyone who had the same issue I had, took me a few to figure out what the issue was, but once I did, it was kind of like a "duh" moment to create the symlink. Then again, I am running my own custom kernel, but it still puts the headers in an odd location to me.
