New Release: Elegance Colors – Chameleonic GNOME Shell theme


elegance colors gnome shell
Elegance Colors, a chameleonic, highly customizable GNOME Shell theme, has been updated today, the new version bringing an option to export a customized theme for later use.
The latest Elegance Colors 0.3 works with GNOME Shell 3.6 and the best thing about it is that the theme changes its colors according to the current GTK theme, wallpaper or an user-defined color. The theme also comes with a configuration tool which can be used to customize it: use light or dak menus, change the panel or menu opacity, font size and other options.

Here are a few examples of customizations supported by Elegance Colors:

GNOME Shell: How To Enable Notifications In The Lock Screen


gnome shell lock screen notifications
GNOME Shell 3.6 got a neat feature which allows notifications to be displayed in the lock screen.

In Ubuntu 12.10 (either if you’ve installed GNOME Shell manually or using Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10), the lock screen notifications are turned off by default and since Ubuntu uses System Settings 3.4 instead of 3.6, the option to turn it on is missing. So here’s a quick tip on how to enable it. Open a terminal and copy/paste the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver show-notifications true
This can also be done by using Dconf-editor, by navigating to org > gnome > desktop > screensaver and enabling “show-notifications”.
After enabling this option, you’ll get music player controls and the number of unread notifications in the GNOME Shell lock screen, like you can see in the screenshot above.
If you want to disable the notifications from showing up in the GNOME Shell lock screen, use:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver show-notifications false

These instructions should work with any Linux distribution running GNOME Shell 3.6 or newer.

Thanks to Dylan McCall for the tip!

GPaste GNOME Shell Clipboard Manager Available For Ubuntu 12.10 (GNOME Shell 3.6)


Por: Andrew

gpaste
GPaste, a native GNOME Shell clipboard manager, is now available for Ubuntu 12.10 / GNOME Shell 3.6 through the WebUpd8 GNOME 3 PPA.
GPaste features uris support (remembers copied files, not just text), a command line tool, option to backup / restore clipboard history, image support and other useful options.

Install GPaste in Ubuntu 12.10

To install GPaste in Ubuntu 12.10 (with GNOME Shell 3.6), use the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-gpaste

Once installed, enable the extension using GNOME Tweak Tool.

Note: there’s a memory leak when enabling the image support (it occurs when taking a screenshot for instance). For this reason, I’ve disabled it by default in GPaste package available in our PPA but you can enable it from the GPaste settings if you want to use it anyway.
Unfortunately, the latest GPaste 2.9 doesn’t compile successfully for Ubuntu 12.04, that’s why the latest version is only available for Ubuntu 12.10.
