Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] New testing ISO 20100215

My favorite color is blue. 

+1 blue 

IMHO green looks like mildew.
But I totally agree we need to take the theme that is complete and gets the 
most votes. For this purpose I will definitely upgrade my NewWave Theme for 
Lubuntu in the next couple of days (most work will be done on weekend I guess) 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/Artwork/Incoming/Lucid/NewWave

So that we will have a choice ;)

I like the idea of purple with black and grey :)


2010/2/18 josef A. Beroeatwarin rajatanpacel...@gmail.com

  Hi all Lubuntu geeks or whatever :-)

 So its sound like  we are so close with the release of Lubuntu. Green is
 nice and for the one that took time to make the green logo thank you...
 I like to have a different colour... because kubuntu is blue, ubuntu is
 brown xubuntu is grey,wattos (ubuntu derived and using lxde) is green just
 like opensuse.
 I like  to see purple with a combination with black or grey... I not a
 really a purple lover I am more of green or blue but... I what to see
 something different with a own status of colour and with the the logo of
 ubuntu as sign where we come from
 So guys what do you think of purple with black, grey maybe metalic,
 ofcourse its sound heavy but its still runs light...

I think we should discard blue (Kubuntu), Brown/Orange/Red (Ubuntu), and

footprint... And use a clearly identifyable (does that word even exist?)

pool is a good idea, but where and how?
i'd recommend candidates:
-green
-red (maybe with oragne, for association with ubutnu's brown?)
-purple/violet
-turquoise/emerald
and I think that even more possibilities may be good to consider.
but as it was said before, more important is a stable, full and matching
theme, than the colour itself.

  Wow, I see an explossion about colour issue. Please, check the theme wiki
 and see the options. I've made a few wallpapers for matching the blue
 colours. And I must be clear, I've received from Canonical the colour
 specifications about usage, logos, trademarks and Pantone(tm) references.
 That's why Xubuntu and Kubuntu (and official derivatives, as we want to
 be) are blue. Anyway, look at this shot:



 Is the purple / pink background with dark panel. As you can see there're a
 lot of combinations, but remaining theme specs. I'll made a poll to request
 your preferences about GUI details.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] colours

2010-02-18 Thread Sylkis
wow. I won't comment cause I don't want to potentially offend anyone, it
just doesn't apply to me at all. IMO there is nothing that connects
lighweight software and saving enviroment, the usage of resources doesn't
convince me at all, and such way of thinking associates me badly.
let's just put away the philosophy argument, please.
still, the first screenshot was a nice suprise, possible way to go with
green, I wouldn't complain if lubuntu eventually looked like that, while the
second didn't appeal to me (the grey taskbar and dirty titlebar were ugly,
icons were in some different not matching colour, etc).


2010/2/18 Jo Gerb jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com

 its just that lubuntuusers wont have to buy a new computer, they can still
 use their old one (good for our planet). Lubuntu needs less ressources than
 other distributions. lxde is leightweight, and i dont know, but i associate
 that with green. like a flower or a tree that can grow on a little piece of
 earth with some water and some light not needing much more, lubuntu will be
 usable on (almost) every hardware.

 2010/2/18 Sylkis syl...@gmail.com

 what does green have to filosophy of either ubuntu or LXDE? and why purple
 doesn't?
 but I even like the screenshots, even though it resembles openSUSE, which
 associates me badly. the green used there is not so dirty as I was almost
 sure it would be, and problably it is why I have ben so plesantly suprised
 :) but still i'd use a darker and more pure colour for titlebar of second
 screen.

 2010/2/18 jo franz jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com

 hm, ok, purple is a trendcolour. thats right, its in (even if some
 magazines say that grey is the new purple), but it will become out again.
 maybe one year, maybe three, but same as neon-colours: totally cool now (and
 in the 80ies), but forgotten and ugly in some years.
 Our logo (and thats were i want the colourchange, even if the ubuntu logo
 is yellow and orange and brown, many parts of the standard theme are grey)
 should have a colour thats always ok, like a evergreen . purple has nothing
 to do with the philosophy of lxde or lubuntu. green has.  i changed your
 screenshot to green (just for comparison) and made some on my own.

 i made the files brown, a purple/blue/green wallpaper and logo doesn't
 meen that every little symbol has to have that colour.
 best regards, jo.

  Wow, I see an explossion about colour issue. Please, check the
 theme wiki and see the options. I've made a few wallpapers for matching 
 the
 blue colours. And I must be clear, I've received from Canonical the 
 colour
 specifications about usage, logos, trademarks and Pantone™ references.
 That's why Xubuntu and Kubuntu (and official derivatives, as we want 
 to
 be) are blue. Anyway, look at this shot:



 Is the purple / pink background with dark panel. As you can see
 there're a lot of combinations, but remaining theme specs. I'll made a 
 poll
 to request your preferences about GUI details.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] colours

2010-02-18 Thread Andrew Woodhead
How about a few screenshots in a few different colours to see what the
consensus is?



2010/2/18 jo franz jo.ge.s...@googlemail.com

 hm, ok, purple is a trendcolour. thats right, its in (even if some
 magazines say that grey is the new purple), but it will become out again.
 maybe one year, maybe three, but same as neon-colours: totally cool now (and
 in the 80ies), but forgotten and ugly in some years.
 Our logo (and thats were i want the colourchange, even if the ubuntu logo
 is yellow and orange and brown, many parts of the standard theme are grey)
 should have a colour thats always ok, like a evergreen . purple has nothing
 to do with the philosophy of lxde or lubuntu. green has.  i changed your
 screenshot to green (just for comparison) and made some on my own.

 i made the files brown, a purple/blue/green wallpaper and logo doesn't meen
 that every little symbol has to have that colour.
 best regards, jo.

Re: [Lubuntu-desktop] colours

Yes, couldn't we put  bunch of options up on the wiki or something and
everyone could vote?
Seems the most democratic way of doing things to me.

[Lubuntu-desktop] colours (a lot)

2010-02-18 Thread 神癒礁湖
That's what I was trying to say... at the wiki there're a lot of
options. LxDesign comes with 6 different colours (and a transparent menu
also). Have a look:

[Lubuntu-desktop] multiple colour combinations

2010-02-18 Thread 神癒礁湖
The trick is the combination. I thought there wasn't to make an icon and
GTK theme for matching every colour, and I recommended using Shiki
Colors themes to match. So, if you like the pink / purple wallpaper
combine it with Shiki Noble; you want green, combine with Shiki Wise;
etc. Also, Lubuntu distro includes the whole Openbox Themes package, so
it's not difficult to find one hat combines well with the colour
overall.

[Lubuntu-desktop] PCManFM/libfm now has thumbnail support and auto-mount!

2010-02-18 Thread PCMan
Hi list,
After days of hacking, now pcmanfm2/libfm supports thumbnail and very
basic auto-mount.
Heavy testing is needed since I'm going to make first public tarball
release (alpha release).
Translators please exam English strings to see if there are errors in
spelling or grammar since I'm not native speacker. There is no urgent
need to update your translations because strings are not yet frozen
and they might be changed later.
After some final UI polishing, I'll make a tarball. My current plan is
to release it within one week.

Besides, some people seemed to notice prolonged startup time. Please
confirm this.
If the startup speed is really slow, I need to fix that.

Cheers!
