Just out of curiosity, Phanx, are those the default colors on the ButtonFacade stuff?
Also, did you piece together the texture for the minimap border out of the simpleSquare parts, or what?
By the way, I've always loved your UIs, they always look so damned clean and polished. A bit too big for my tastes, but still damn good-looking :)

Insanely stretched wallpaper or just me?
It does kinda look that way, huh?
It's a wallpaper designed for dual monitor setups, and Ubuntu might have scaled it funky, but I thought it was a 3360x1050 wallpaper. I'll have to check on that.
Sep 4, 2008I have a friend who used to have a 20MB HOSTS file, all entries inputted by hand. I don't recall his method for making the ads invisible, but I think all he did was redirect it to localhost, so it wasn't nice and clean like a transparent 1px image. But, still, it was awesome :)Posted in: General Chat
Sep 3, 2008My new adventures into Ubuntu and customizations for it!Posted in: General Chat
Conky is bits and pieces of one's I liked, plus a few of my own customizations. Emerald Theme is Orange Door Hinge, GTK2 theme is Mire v2 Blue.
Mouse is Neutral-something-or-other, can't recall. And the wallpaper's just something I found that I thought looked good. Can't recall what the icon theme is, either. Also running Compiz (Which I love XD)
Anywho, attached the screenshot. Let me know what you guys think :)

There's not that much released yet, since most of my interfaces have some bugs and shit that makes it a tad not-user-friendly. But i will probably upload some of it soon, when i'm starting a new theme. :)
Coolness! I look forward to it :)
Aug 29, 2008Hey, Ocularis, just out of curiosity, are all your nifty stuff available to download? I was checking out your DeviantArt, and it appears you only have screenshots of them up. Some of that stuff is super-awesome :DPosted in: General Chat

did you do the tweak/configuration thing in that doc? if not, try it, it worked for me.
Well, after literally spending more than 12 hours in one sitting trying to fix it, I decided to hell with it, scrapped all the video drivers in Ubuntu, and then let it install the default Radeon 3870 drivers.
Then, after some basic Config.wtf tweaks, it works just fine. Now I'm just down to making it not fritz out when you ALT+TAB/use Compiz's 3d Cube to swivel around to another Virtual Desktop. That's basically the only thing wrong with it (graphically) and then I'll be good to go with customizing it the rest of the way, as I've decided to try and go the whole hog with the customization of it :)
I was so stoked when it worked, I almost cried. 12 Hours is a lot of time to be staring at tutorials, modifying xorg.conf's, and screwing with apt-get, aptitude, etc.
It feels like I've definitely earned the stability and OS now, though :D
Aug 28, 2008I just wanted to thank everyone who posted the awesome Linux screenshots in this thread. They have convinced me to try and make the switch, and I have almost everything set up how I would like.Posted in: General Chat
However, the only thing I can't get working is WoW (The only thing, essentially, maintaining my death grip on Windows). The graphics are incredibly corrupted, can't make out anything, even in windowed (the whole screen goes fuzzy and corrupted). So, once I figure that out, it's goodbye to Windows :)
Again, thanks. I've been looking for an excuse to switch, and this pretty much is what convinced me :)

Raid frames: let's say 5 units between the top of the frames and the top of the screen, but 7 or 8 units between the left of the frames and the left of the screen. Then 10 units between the top of buffs and the top of the screen, 0 units between the top of the minimap and the top of the screen, 1 unit between the right of the minimap and the right of the screen, 1 unit between the right of Omen and the right of the screen, -2 units between the guild chat frame and the edge of the screen (notice how the border is offscreen), 0 units between the loot frame and the screen.
There's also inconsistent spacing between elements on the screen. Look at the distance between each buff icon, the distance between the minimap and buff icons, the distance between action buttons, the distance between Omen and the chat frame, etc. In my UI, I use Align, and type "/align 64" to get a medium grid. I then place things around the edge of the screen with a margin of 1 square. Parts of the same thing (like action buttons or buff icons) don't have any space between them; different things have the same 1-square space between them. Consistency is the key!
Ooooo! I see now, thanks, Phanx. Man, you sure are methodical and precise o.O
Funny enough the image I loaded has some of the image chopped. I had a look at my local copy of the jpg and the guild chat border isn't chopped. Photobucket must've cropped it or something. Anywho, thanks again. I'll have a look at the spacing issues
Jul 31, 2008Yeah, I was just trying to continue the uniformity of the UI through the grey coloring of the Omen bars, I'll have a look at what it looks like Class-Colored with the Flat texture. Yeah, I know the fonts are fricken tiny, but I like them that way, just look real clean to me.Posted in: General Chat
How do you mean "inconsistent spacing with elements at the edge of the screen"? Could you give some examples, because I'm not seeing it.
Thanks for the feedback, Phanx, keep it comin' :)
Jul 31, 2008My current UI:Posted in: General Chat
Modified Chinchilla, modified mumble.
Things changed since this screenshot: Omen bars are now one universal color (The color of the Pitbull bars)
Feedback and criticism welcomed, and appreciated. Thanks :)
Jul 27, 2008Just out of curiosity, why doesn't kgPanels alter its panels in real time like eePanels2 used to? I was under the impression that this was essentially eePanels3. I rather do miss the ability to see my alterations as I make them rather than having to go through a slew of reloadings. Any insight to this design would be appreciated.Posted in: General AddOns
I'm not bashing kgPanels or anything, I am just genuinely curious as to why real-time panel-editing was done away with
