you have to find themese in the correct format that you can download and install/add and maybe then that will get you where you want to go.

Hello

 

Sorry I have no idea what is jewel buttons under Mac but only thing I know is related to Mac design is an Engage module on the screen for launching apps.

stefan - mac buttons have a crystal-like glss quality to them - i.e. the enlarg window and diminish window buttons for example.

on mint or ubuntu there are gtk themes and buttons that look like a mac os x dynamic.

 

p.s. also icons and buttons etc. are needed as part o the various themes.

I meant the buttons.

as i said there are themes and buttons that you can download and install and choose.  however - on E/moksha - there are very limited ones that i know of and also i never could figure out where to put the stuff and how to do it - though it may be simple.  however - when i used gnome years ago there were many. many themes and ancillary things - buttons/bars etc. that i could download and install generally easy - and i said they were gtk themes i believe at the time that i found and used.  but that was many years ago.

Wasn't Jeff working on glassy-looking icons for the upcoming release of Bodhi for this summer or was that dropped?

No, it is still alive. I got a permission from the author of the icon set. It will be there, but we decided to put in BL 5 another set (black) as default which is more suitable for the dark-arc theme. Also from that author.

Sounds awesome - looking forward to it!

stefan so - when you download where do you put it and how do you install it?  just asking since i have not messed with bodhi once i got it working.  and i know so little.  so cannot fix without a major work session.

Hi Norman :)

 

Copy that unpacked folder to /usr/share/icons (of course with sudo)

 

then select it under application theme

Of course we will prepare the deb packages later for both sets in order to install in case sb will remove it.

I believe

cd top/level/directory/where_icon_folder_is
#maybe cd /home/graywizardlinux/Downloads/
sudo cp name_of_folder /usr/share/icons
#I am guessing the folder is named Black_v1.02 and you may need a / at the end of /usr/share/icons/

That should work after, of course, you enter your sudo password.

Thanks birdmun.  cd is change dir - cp?  is that correct?

 

also how to unpack?  i know - dumb question - macs were easy to upack or unzip.  never got it in linux.

I cheat with the unpack/unzip. I install file roller which is a gui for opening compressed files. Double click a recognized compression format and file roller opens it. File Roller can be found in the appcenter under system tools.

cp is copy and yes, cd is change directory.

In the menu file-roller is named Archive Manager.

When installed you can right-click in the file manager on an archive like zip or tar files and let it extract there.

 

Btw, a copy operation with sudo can also be performed by opening your file-manager in terminology with the esudo prefix like this:

esudo pcmanfm 

Enjoy,

Charles

Ok first half i figured that might be - the 2nd part i did not know.  Thanks charles and stefan and birdmun!

 

i will have to check this out.  with all the rains and floods and outside vineyard work to do and chips to move and rake out plus onions and other stuff to plant - i am out picking at stuff when i can.  i check this out when i take a break here and there.

 

:-)))

 

still behind in pruning the whole vineyard yet!
