Clearlooks, Linux and other things that matter

I recently discovered a really nice feature where trying to connect to a new server using ssh/scp will display a GTK+ popup, asking you to confirm the identity if there’s no stdin (for example, when running ssh/scp as part of a custom command in MonoDevelop). Features like these make me really happy, because it means that [...]

Last year blog recap

Sun, 14 Jan 2007 22:33:55 +0000

Let’s see… Birthday. Spam complaint. That’s it. Two short blog posts in one whole year, that’s just pathetic… Turns out I’m a clogger. I’ll try to make better use of my blog this year though But don’t hold your breath just yet…

Dear Mr. Google

I know you’re reading my mail, and that’s fine. So you’re probably also aware that the only types of email I read are either written in English or Dutch. The reason for this, is that it’s the only two languages I master. This means that all email written in any other language can go directly [...]

Happy Birthday to me!

Sun, 30 Apr 2006 06:24:30 +0000

So yeah, today is my 24th birthday I’m not celebrating it in any fancy way, except for eating some cake with my parents & brothers and perhaps some relatives if they choose to show up

New Clearlooks Metacity & Xfce theme!

Sun, 18 Dec 2005 13:25:06 +0000

My fellow Clearlooks developer Daniel Borgmann has been working on an early christmas present for all of you Behold the all new shiny Clearlooks 2.0 Metacity theme! It goes really well with the upcoming cairo version of Clearlooks. Get the cool stuff here: clearlooks-metacity-2.0.tar.gz clearlooks-xfwm4-2.0.tar.gz To install it, unpack it to /usr/share/themes and overwrite the old metacity theme [...]

Result of yesterday’s elections are in!

Sun, 27 Nov 2005 21:10:04 +0000

I’m overwhelmed by the response I got on yesterday’s poll. I should do this more often Here are the results at the time of writing this: Progressbar animation direction Left to right   67.89% Right to left   18.11% No animation   14.00% 1750 votes total The result to me was quite unexpected! The old Clearlooks had RTL (opposite direction) animation, yet only 1 or 2 [...]

Clearlooks-cairo has animated progressbars again, thanks to some evil hacks from Kulyk Nazar. In addition to animated progressbars, we also have fading checkboxes and radiobuttons. Pretty neat stuff! But that’s not what I came here for. I’d like everyone’s opinion on the direction the progressbar should animate. Below are three progressbars. Two of them animate in [...]

Clearlooks-cairo and the first milestone

Tue, 13 Sep 2005 10:41:41 +0000

During the absence of new posts, a lot of work has gone into Clearlooks-cairo. To give people an idea of the progress being made, I’ve set three milestones. 1. Finish the basic version, without custimization options. 2. Add the customization options. 3. Polishing it, and then polishing it some more. Right now, I’ve almost reached the first milestone. What’s [...]

The Widget Factory 0.2

Thu, 25 Aug 2005 14:48:54 +0000

Were you heavily dissapointed by the lack of on-the-fly theme switching? Couldn’t stand the fact that the progressbars didn’t animate when dragging those sliders? Or simply despised the lack of tab widgets on all four sides? Well I’ve got news for you! The Widget Factory 0.2 does all that! So, without further adieu, I present: the download [...]

A little Clearlooks-cairo update

Tue, 09 Aug 2005 23:50:38 +0000

I’ve had quite some requests to port Clearlooks to Qt/KDE, and the idea has been playing in my head for a while now. Since porting the original Clearlooks to KDE is a very time consuming process, I decided to design the cairo version in such a way that makes it as independent from GTK+ as possible. [...]
