I'm so curious that I want to read the source. Reading the source codes of other programmers is a bit tricky, as you may know. And as you said, that's a job for another day. - Oct 24 2013

By popup I just meant what the user can add with System Settings > Application and System Notifications.

I don't think the number of new mails alone is enough because it's possible that the user reads the last mail and immediately after that a new one arrives. - Oct 24 2013

Sorry for not being explicit enough. Here is my explanation:

A new mail arrives and qCheckGMail correctly notifies its presence with three methods: (1) its tray icon changes; (2) a sound is played; and (3) a message is popped up. The latter two methods depend on the user settings, of course. The user doesn't read the mail and after the next update interval, qCheckGMail uses all of the three methods above again. In my opinion, it should just keep using the icon qCheckGMail-GotMail (as it correctly does) but not use a popup or sound again UNLESS additional new mails are arrived, i.e. the state of email account has really changed since the last update. - Oct 24 2013

BTW, qCheckGMail seems to notify the existence of new mails it had recognized in its previous update intervals again and again. I'll check the source as soon as I have more free time but I'm sure you'll fix that sooner ;) - Oct 24 2013

For me, gmail-plasmoid caused a segfault in the plasma desktop today. I was lucky that I got suspicious about it because otherwise I might waste a lot of time for finding the cause. It has two problems: it isn't updated for a long time; and it's in python. You made a wise choice to write qCheckGMail in C++. - Oct 24 2013
qCheckGMail

Email by mhogomchungu 36 comments

Today I installed qCheckGMail and liked it. It works very well. Two suggestions:

(1) share/icons isn't a good place for putting the icons unless they're included in share/icons/hicolor. You could put them in share/pixmaps instead. (I replaced share/icons with share/pixmaps in CMakeLists.txt for myself.)

(2) Also in the desktop files, please use:

Icon=qCheckGMail

instead of:

Icon=${CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX}/share/pixmaps/qCheckGMail.svg

In this way, the icons will be chosen from the user theme.

Thanks a lot for this nice app. I use it instead of gmail-plasmoid (which causes serious problems sometimes). I think many KDE users haven't discovered it yet, otherwise they'd surely vote it up. - Oct 24 2013

QtCurve by tsujan 22 comments

(1) The easiest way is to select Oxygen instead of QtCurve in System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > Applications (tab). However, the pressed state of buttons isn't easily recognizable with Oxygen when you use a dark color scheme.

(2) You could also use Oxygen as above but change System Settings > Application Appearance > Colors > Colors (tab) > Window (drop-down menu) > Normal Background to a bit lighter color. Don't forget to save the changed scheme under a different name and apply.

(3) But the best way is to stay with QtCurve, click Configure in System Settings > Application Appearance > Style > Applications (tab), select the Custom Gradients tab and choose Custom gradient 8 from its drop-down menu. Then you could change it in whatever way you like but don't forget to use the Update button after every change. After that, you could also go to the Rounding tab on the same dialog and change "Max rounded". - Oct 14 2013

Full Icon Themes by tsujan 55 comments

Unfortunately, Kile, digiKam and Amarok don't use the action icons I made for them, while Kdenlive does.

That's a (minor) bug. In my opinion, although Qt-only apps can use their own icons because they're desktop-agnostic, KDE apps should always use the theme icons. - Oct 04 2013

I agree with you. Another example is Amarok, whose latest version doesn't use the theme's icons while its previous versions did (a bug?). Kdenlive is yet another example. I'll see what I can do for them. - Sep 30 2013

NoobsLab (https://launchpad.net/~noobslab/) and WebUpd8 (https://launchpad.net/~webupd8team/) nicely pack all my Gnome related themes.

Apart from that, on the one hand, PPA only covers Debian based systems and, othe other hand, my focus is on KDE nowadays (Gnome3 breaks themes with every update besides many other problems it creates for users). - Sep 25 2013

That's exactly why I said goodbye to GTK3 and Gnome3. I felt oppressed under Gnome3 and felt free again with KDE. Gnome3 has lost so many of its users and I think even its developers don't use it. - Aug 06 2013

The folder is correct. I have only two guesses:

(1) Your Firefox may not be restarted. Quit Firefox and search for its name in System Monitor. If you still see its process, there should be something wrong with it. If not, start it again.

(2) Just a simple mistake in copy/pasting the contents of userContent.css. - Aug 03 2013

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

All people, who had problem with the instructions, couldn't find the correct folder. Make your file manager show hidden files. Then you'll see the folder '.mozilla' in your Home. Inside it you'll find the folder 'firefox'. Now inside the latter, there should be a folder, whose name is specific to you. For example, mine is 'ryr22gsk.default'. Find the folder 'chrome' inside it (create it if it doesn't exist) and create the file 'userContent.css' in it as explained in README. At last, restart FireFox.

BTW, your xxxx.default and the chrome directories couldn't disappear by using the above instructions. - Aug 03 2013

Thank you very much! I think you meant GnomishDark because nouveGnomeGray is designed for dark themes (although some people like to use it with light ones too). I should update it for recent changes in Gnome-3.8.

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

I'm glad you like GnomishDark.

Alhough I haven't used Eclipse, I know it's in Java. Java apps can usually allow for three ways of theming: the default Java theme (mostly ugly); a GTK+ skin (which sometimes isn't designed for dark themes, as in your case); and internal color schemes. I think you could use the third way to change the color E2E2E2, which doesn't exist in GnomishDark.

Thanks a lot for your support! Debian is very strict in adding new software to its repositories and I admire it for that. If it weren't so, you'd have Gnome-3.8 now, with all of its troubles and bugs (it's in Experimental).

I think a GTK theme should be directly related to Gnome for them to add it to gnome-themes-extra and GnomishBeige isn't so. I'm not sure though. - Jul 24 2013

In the method DataSource::dataUpdated(), instead of the signal componentChanged() being emitted conditionally for the minute and hour components, I added its emission for them just after the second component and the resume problem is fixed.

Plasma 4 Extensions by Emdek 354 comments

Yesterday I updated my installation of your great plasmoid from v3.1 to v4.1.2 and saw the same thing herrbatka had reported.

After resuming from hibernation, the hour figure isn't updated until the minute reaches 60. The same is true for the minute figure. The theme makes no difference. It seems that, in the code, the hour and minute figures are redrawn only once an hour and once a minute respectively (I haven't examined the code yet) so that the problem is visible only after >= 1 hour of hibernation/suspend. - Jun 12 2013

GTK3 Themes by tsujan 179 comments

Thanks a lot for testing on Linux Mint with MATE.

First of all, please put the theme in /usr/share/themes and see if the issues persist. Synaptic's issue may be related to installing the theme only for user; it has no problem here.

I don't have SOFTWARE CENTER on Debian but I hope its issue is related to installation as user too.

As for MATE, if it uses the GTK+ part of GnomishDark, there's only a gnome fallback mode in it, where no font size is set at all.

But if MATE uses the Cinnamon theme, please change "font-size: 10pt;" to "font-size: 12pt;" in the" #panel" block of cinnamon.css and see if it has any effect after logging out/in.

Your reply will be helpful to me. - May 22 2013

It should work on any Linux distro, including Linux Mint, because GTK+, Gnome and Shell are the same in all distros (although Ubuntu has made some changes to GTK+).

However, GnomishDark is still for Gnome-3.6 and GTK+-3.6. I've made changes for 3.8 but will upload the new version only after Gnome-3.8 comes into Debian Unstable (for testing). - May 21 2013
