I've just posted a comment on your bugreport on Emerald crashing when hiding its decorations on maximized windows:

It would appear that this bug is circumventable: Disabling the Window-Applets setting to hide decorations on maximized windows and manually setting "!state=maxvert" under Compiz' window-decoration settings results in a stable Emerald experience for me (Ubuntu 10.10, default Compiz & Emerald).

Setting the Window-Applets setting to hide decorations on maximized windows again makes Emerald crash again as well. This behaviour is reproducable.

Please test this on your end. If it works like I described you can tell your users how to prevent this bug from happening or even modify your Window-Applets code to match.

I love your panel-applet! Thank you for it!

Unfortunatly, I got used to the reversed window-button order on the top left corner of windows: Close, Minimize, (Un)Maximize.

I already played with your code in order to achieve this reverse order, but with no success.

Could you tell me how to reverse the order of the applet-buttons or even build in a switch in the configuration to do so? This would be amazing!

Thank you! - May 03 2009

My apologies to those of you who tried to download version 0.4 in the last couple of minutes: Gnome-Look is apparently unable to overwrite the old tar.gz of the theme. I now compressed the themes into a ZIP-archive & re-uploaded them. That seems to have done it. - May 21 2010
Done. Download version 0.4 for both variants of the theme. - May 21 2010
Thank you for the screenshot!

Are you certain that that the version of Ambiance metacity shown in it is actually the correct one shipped with Lucid and not a modded / altered version?

I checked with the version of Ambiance I have installed on my system and made sure that version 0.3 is identical to it.

Therefore, it is strange that your version of Ambiance metacity obviously differs. - May 17 2010
Done! Thank you for your feedback! - May 17 2010
This bug is now fixed with version 0.2. Thank you for your feedback! - May 13 2010

I have been using your theme for the last couple of days & absolutely love it. Very elegant & a perfect fit for Lucid!

Are you planning any more future releases? I'd love to see (optional) support for the breadcrump-navigation of Nautilus Elementary! - May 27 2010

While I found the Aurora engine to be a tad bit too slow for my taste, your beautiful creation makes me appreciate Aurora (and of course your mod of it) again.

Also, I am very much looking forward to your release of those very beautiful icons we've been seeing in the screenshots. They're absolutely gorgeous! - Mar 21 2010

This is the the best-developed metacity theme ever - and I've been here for a while... :)

Thank you for listening to your users' wishes and making the effort to make them true. Awesome!

You just set a new standard when it comes to metacity-themes! - Feb 15 2010
Awesome work on the customizer!

Count me as +1 for the wish for "buttons on the left" as a future option for the customizer! - Feb 11 2010
I really like this theme & it certainly deserves the praise it is getting here as well as on blogs & websites at the moment.

What I would love to see, though, is a version with buttons set to the left side of the window. Some of us have switched to this Macish window-buttons orientation & it would be sad to leave those of us out in the rain...

Please consider creating a left-sided metacity version, too. Thank you! - Feb 08 2010

First of all: I really enjoy your theme and have been using it for some time now. Thank you for it!

However, there is a minor bug which continues to annoy me: In both Firefox + Thunderbird, text-input field (single + multiline) have a 45-degree, greyish line reaching from the lower left to the upper right corner of EACH and EVERY input-box there is. This line only disappears if you select the form-field with your cursor.

I already tried debugging the gtkrc, but with no success, obviously. It would be awesome if you could hunt down + squish that last bug, too! Thank you! - Apr 17 2009

Thanks for the update!

I've been busy, too: The ZIP now contains code to fetch the recent external IP as well. And the linebreaks & phrasings are more reasonable & helpful.

I got a friend to work on a KDE-port. I'd like to discuss future development of Woof-GUI with you. How about we move this away from these comments, set up a Github- or SVN-Hub someplace and start commiting?

Contact me on Jabber at or find me on freenode-IRC as "technopagan"! - Mar 07 2009
Hi again!

I just couldn't wait!

Here's an updated version of this great tool:

It has the improvements mentioned in my comment above. Hope it helps! - Mar 05 2009

Until now, I hadn't known about Woof - But it's exactly what I constantly need because the file-transfer-agents of IM-protocols really suck! Thank you for making this great tool easier to use!

However, I've ancountered a slight usability-f*ckup: When trying the tool for the first time myself, I couldn't download the testfile - Nothing happened, the brwowser just sat there waiting for packages. And why? Because I had kept the Zenity-notification window open that said: "Now serving on ...". But you have to click the OK-button on that window to make Woof actually serve the file! So it's not "Now serving..." after all!

It would be great if the Zenity-window could show the filename again, Then the ideal (!) usability-solution would be changing the window-contents to "The file '' will be available for a single download at".

Then offer the OK-button below so people actually press it to confirm the offering of the download - Only then the download will actually work. And - to gain the gratitude of the whole known universe - offer an "Abort"-button as well, which will onclick kill the two python-processes that have started in the background once the user has selected a file with the nautilus-script option.

I'll gladly help you translate the tool to German, French, Spanish, Esperanto & Turkish. And I'll gladly give more Usability-feedback! - Mar 05 2009

Hi again!

My apologies - but I think the new Wave-based approach was a bad choice.

The old release actually combined the elegance of the Dust-theme with the (also elegant) usability of Shiki. This was just great!

The new 1.5 release does not accept individual color-choices like 1.0 did. The whole thing looks unfinished and - to put it simple - it looks just like an unfinished, buggy Wave-theme.

I really appreciate your effort with the rounded sliders in version 1.5! But don't make your theme look so bad just to get them!

For now I've returned to using your 1.0 release, which is still available at - It simply is the better choice for me right now. - Jan 05 2009
Wow! That's amazing! Thank you! Looking forward to it! - Jan 04 2009

Thank you for this theme! I really enjoy it because you're combined my two favourite themes!

Please continue developing this hybrid! What I'd love to see is a round slider-knob for volume and similar range-sliders. The one right now looks too Clearlook'ish... ;)

The GnuMobile Theme ( has the sort of round slider-knobs that I mean. - Jan 04 2009

Frankly, I wasn't aware of's existance as of yet.

The discussion at seems to be the typical hypergeek's "Oh my god, it's a linux that actually works - I cannot like it anymore". Many geeks use their OS as a hobby rather than a plattform for their productivity and there's not much to do in your hobby if the OS actually works almost out of the box. It's fine by me if they then switch to a more bleeding-edge distro (or BSD ;) ) in order to have something to do. What isn't fine by me is that some people actually start complaining about the good work the Ubuntu-Team is doing.

GNOME is becoming a more popular desktop-environment because a distro like Ubuntu is using it. There's no downside to this. That's why I personally see no problem in posting a Ubuntu-Logo at Of course, kiddies placing distorted Ubuntu-Logos on "erotic" ;) wallpapers is a different matter - But those wallpapers bug me more because of their underlying unreflected sexism than because of the Ubuntu-Logo.

If you like, you can upload the whole wallpaper/Logo set on However, I personally see no reason to leave just because I'm using Ubuntu. - Mar 10 2008

I was using the NuoveXT-Iconset. But I modded it as I didn't like the icons for Firefox, Thunderbird and others -> mainly all those icons with a strange white highlight colour. The cute little Krusader-Icon for example came from a Krusader-Ivon-Contest here on! ;) - Jan 02 2007
Thanks for the advise!
I'll post another scheme with grey colour as well!

The image can be found at
I would re-upload it for if it was completely free for all use (many pics are!), but this one here is not completely free. Secondly you would have to register to download the high-res-image. I'm not sure how happy stox-exchange would be if I re-uploaded their contents elsewhere. So you really have to go through the whole procedure of registering. Sorry.

unsure what to think ... I despise the patriotic elements ... hm... the pics are very intimate though; especially the last one with the hand-closeup.
Whatever I'm going to think about the whole thing sooner or later: Pics like these do not belong to a website dedicated for desktop styles. No offence. - Nov 08 2005
