[Selene] How about "Qupzilla" WebkitQt based browser? :)

Merry Christmas guys...

Now I'm playing with Qupzilla browser!! :P
 Really fast, lightweight browser closely as fast as midori... Amazing!

And now I'm polishing up its theming to be fitted to Selene. If finished, I would upload it to my ppa ASAP. ;) So why I love it? Yeah this browser actually run with Qt engine, but it could improve gtk2 theming partially!! Wow NICE!! Although we still have to fix some mismatches especially GtkToolbar, Tabs, and more, but anyway this browser could remind me to be fun with bleeding edge software!

Nice Devs!

[Selene] Gets starting new theming! :)

For a couple of days, I've been restarting gtk theming for selene... :P

Yeah now I would like to apply "dark" titlebar/menubar and "inverted gradient" toolbar. Till its work finished, Might be needed more time...

And one more big news!!

Finally Midori have got a gtk3 engined browsing!!! Wow! :-) Today though we need to rebuild this package, seems really unstable, disabled flash plugins, but anyway this feature must be accepted for everyone who loves Midori!! Nice works devs!! Because I don't like Firefox, Chromium, Opera and so, I truly want gtk3 native browser for Gnome3...

Have a nice day!

[GDM] Updated to apply newer dconf improvements! :)

Hi bleeding edge gdm testers.

Just now I've updated gdm packages to apply dconf improvements. So it means that contents might be quite changed, Then you might have to refresh them by cleaning "purge" and "fresh" install...

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get purge gdm  libgdmgreeter1 libgdmsimplegreeter1 gir1.2-gdmgreeter-1.0

and switch back to lightdm and reboot, then

sudo apt-get install gdm  libgdmgreeter1 libgdmsimplegreeter1 gir1.2-gdmgreeter-1.0

Especially in this time, I think this release would be more unstable, and remember that I didn't check oneiric as well :P But anyway in the future, I suppose we must need such feature to apply dconf global settings for gdm to follow git based sources up...

Have a nice day!

[Selene] Enhanced Indicator-Applet to make independent "DateTime" indicator!! :)

  For a couple of days, I've been trying to polish gnome-panel up and up... Then I really didn't accept "embedded calendar" widget on gnome-panel. :/

  So I've polished indicator-applet package to improve independent "DateTime" indicator applet to put it into center pack on gnome-panel looks like WingPanel!

  Finally done!! :-)

  So we could put datetime indicator into gnome-panel anywhere you want. And then actually it seems quite good than original embedded clock applet...

  Yeah it's very similar to wingpanel's appearances so far!! Wow!! I've also updated my Selene theming to accept for the new look of Calendar appearance...

  If you had been interesting in "Centre Clocked" gnome-panel, And if you like wingpanel's centre clock, please give it a try:
  (Remember this ppa is only for precise testing.. lol)

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tista/selene
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-applet indicator-applet-datetime indicator-applet-session indicator-applet-appmenu indicator-applet-complete

  Cheers. :)
