  1. I am a new user to Ubuntu. Tried to download the themes. Download speed when used sudo aptitude or package manager is only couple of bits.
    Now I am downloading directly the mail packages in firefox.

    Can you help reg low bandwidth please

  5. Please donate your old boxes to a church-group or some needy student in these hard times! To comply with the law, and with Microsoft’s leasing policy, you can now replace Microsoft OS with the free (download from the net) Ubuntu OS, which can be set to erase the hard drive of all traces of the “illegal to give away ” Microsoft system and your private information, before donation! Now, explain to your lucky recipient that all the manuals they will ever need are available for free on the internet! Just ask for them in Google! OpenOffice, which is installed already is plenty adequate for homework assignments and with a little exploring, everything else can work well too! Happy computing!

  6. Hi and thanks for those nice themes you make us know! they seem very nice, you are wright!
    I’m a Hardy Heron user and a linux newbie too. But the title of your feed “…for Jaunty and Intrepid Users” make me lost my lost my smile, what about the Heron! :(
    So, in order to dress my Heron, i decided to install those themes by adapting repositories like this:
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu hardy main
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/bisigi/ppa/ubuntu hardy main

    ..i also add the GPG key and reload my repositories list..
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 1781bd45c4c3275a34bb6aec6e871c4a881574de
    sudo apt-get update

    …before doing this:
    sudo aptitude install showtime-theme

    sudo aptitude install balanzan-theme

    After that, the showtime and balanzan themes have being installed without any problems. My resolution is 1280×768 and i use gnome.

    Here is my question: Do you think the manipulations i have done to use those thmes are going to cause me troubles?

    Thanks.

  7. So I installed them all via sudo aptitude install zgegblog-themes, in a vanilla Jaunty system. But only 4 of them show up in System->Preferences->Appearance.

    The 5 that aren’t there are Showtime, Infinity, Wild-Shine, Tropical, and Ubuntu-Sunrise.

    The files for all 9 of them seem to be installed in /usr/share/emerald/themes properly.

    I thought about trying to re-install the ones that don’t show up, but apt-get install seems to want to uninstall all of them except the one I select, using the apt-get install line from the bottom of this post….

    I’m no Ubuntu guru, but I’m at least not a total noob…

    Anybody got any clues as to why only 4 of the 9 show up?
