Have you tried installing Polymer blurymind?
It makes Qt apps look a lot cooler  ;D

You will need to run Qtconfig for all users that you wan't to change.
vpackager is a root app, so logon as root in a terminal, and then run "qtconfig" and select the polymer style. Then you can tweak the colors to your liking.

oops,forgot about that.... But i can't change the background color. I change it to white,close the window (save) and when i start it again,its grey again. :-\

These default settings should be tuned for future releases to look better.  :-\ Even with motif,the background would look better in white.
Thanks for telling me about this.I remember seign it in an older version of vec,in icewm..there was a menu entry for qtconfig,but i forgot about it.

Edit: oops,sorry..I got it now! Thanks!




I also created a version of the main graphic for a lighter bg qt:

I like this style. Why does the background remind me of the headacher  ;)

Yeah, I had that too lighans :). But I recently switched to the animated dance gif. I'm not completely happy with it yet, but it'll have to do for now. Making a new animated gif is a lot of work for me.. there's probably better ways to do it than my current work flow, but I have yet to find it.

yeah i remember his older avie... this one i got from flickr interestingness where i stumble at all kinds of great stuff.. ;D
Black is very good...and adical. Less tiring to the eye,it combines GREAT with blue.

The avatar is pretty nice, i liked the anime one too,and he did have a pretty good eye avatar (eye changing colors?). The dance could look better. :P

btw,this is vec pseudo (upgraded to sw12's greatness) It is a pretty good install ,altho it had some minor issues to iron out,and vasm doesnt work completely right here..

enjoying latest svn build of Gimp (2.4rc1) and i must say i am pretty impressed. Its pretty stable (no problems yet,after hours) and it has a great deal of new features  :o


I got it from svn. If we had a build-script for that,it would be a keeper  :-*

note:i had to refresh libraries (ldcache?) after installing it to make it start.Also it will be installed in /opt and have a sepparate menu entry (it wont overwrite old gimp's)
Code: [Select]
svn co http://svn.gnome.org/svn/gimp/trunk gimp

Cool!  I've been very tempted to try it out.

latest gimp+ google desktop (it just got ported for linux,go get it, better in ways than beagle if you ask me and no need for mono)


I am thinking of making a google package for the repo,that contains:
latest picasa+latest google desktop+ google earth... or i can make them sepparate packages.
Google wouldnt mind if we have them for the repo,and they are static builds, so it doesnt matter which vector you install them on (if we had a static repo...)

...orr since picasa and google earth have both nice installers,while google desktop doesnt, i can package google-desktop:
here is a package:
http://desktop.google.com/linux/
download the rpm,and then do the command:
rpm2tgz *.rpm

since it is static,it will run flawlessly on any vector.

pretty soon expect to see gtalk ported aswell. Its in google's priorities list, also i was hoping they'd port sketchup.
