Actually not - but I find that the metacity-1 folder from Equilux does actually work and inherit the window colour - same grey for this, same bluish grey for 'Nordic' etc. - Mar 07 2019

Not for Mint - the Mint-Y-Dark metacity will update to match the colour of the Mint-Y-Dark(colour) themes. With your themes, the metacity borders don't inherit colours and they're always darker than the window. - Mar 06 2019

Sadly the Window Borders fail on my Mint Cinnamon desktop - it just doesn't change them to match the theme. Back to Mint-Y-Yltra-Dark with the Mint-Y-Dark window borders... - Mar 05 2019

- Didn't show up right in Themes app (plain grey rectangle) and when applied it totally removed all colour from the controls (completely black window except for white text and the icons allowing me to re-apply MintYYltra dark). - Mar 05 2019
+ Excellent - except selecting for the window borders also means you get the same Mint Y dark but without the sticky indicator... - Mar 05 2019

+ Utterly ridiculous, but quite well done and it works... nice to see some real variety that actually works. I'm still stuck going back to Comix and Chameleon cursors as the best overall. This one will stick around for fun though. - Mar 03 2019

Conky scripts

Conky by lyrae 30 comments

Have a go with audacious maybe:

${if_running audacious2}${goto 25}${font dejavu:bold:size=10}${goto 25}${scroll 12 ${exec audtool2 --current-song}}${alignr} ${color white}${exec audtool current-song-output-length}/${exec audtool current-song-length}${color }${goto 25}
${goto 23}${execbar expr 100 \* $(audtool --current-song-output-length-seconds) \/ $(audtool --current-song-length-seconds)}${else}
${goto 23}${color1}${hr}${color }
${goto 26}${font dejavu:bold:size=7}${execi 60 fortune -s | fold -w45}
${color1}${hr}${endif}

If you close Audacious, then you'll get a fortune cookie instead. - Nov 15 2010

Are you using MPD? If not then just comment out these lines in the script. If you are, then search to find out how to 'set up conky mpd'.

If you can't work it out, then delete those three lines and do it again. - Nov 15 2010

Various Gnome Stuff by LuxieRayku 7 comments

Windows Aero interface uses compositing which doesn't look the same as compiz compositing. Copies of Windows Aero themes look okay in screenshots, but on screen they look like very cheap copies - sorry. The same goes for many Apple themes - but most of these are solid and don't look too bad. - Dec 25 2009

They are warehouses, they have no windows. We open windows to view the warehouse on our gnome desktops in our browsers.

Obsidian Cursors

Cursors by ECHM 35 comments

Well I'd agree it's large, though it's not a problem I'd like to be allowed to shrink it.

The other thing I'd like to be able to do is to install it as the default system cursor...

compiz creates errors, and sometimes the only way to get it to show is to do metacity --replace. It seems the cursors aren't loved by compiz!

can you advise how to set this so it works every time? - Dec 02 2009
Ultimate Karmic

System Sounds by johnnyg 17 comments

Instead of first opening a terminal, and then typing in a command, and then using the mouse to navigate - why not just do this?

To install: launch (Alt+F2)
gksu nautilus /usr/share/sounds

(If you use a terminal, then you would open a terminal and type 'sudo mv xxxx /usr/share/sounds').

Honestly, you look like you use Windows!! - Nov 26 2009
