Gnome Media Player Added To The Official Ubuntu 10.10 Repositories

webupd8: GNOME Media Player supports the VLC, Xine and Gstreamer engines for playing media. It also has the ability to switch between the engines, and an engine auto select mode which automatically selects the best engine for playing a particular type of file.

GNOME Media Player is very new so until now you had to use a PPA to install it in Ubuntu – but that’s not the case in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat as GNOME Media Player has been included in the Official Ubuntu repositories.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome-media-player-development/development && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gnome-media-player

Gnome Media Player requires VLC < 1.1.0.

GNOME 3 System Status Area [Mockups]

In GNOME 3, the System Status Area is a place where System Status Indicators represent the status of the system to the user. This is not an area that is variously called the Notification Area or System Tray and should not be used by applications (foreground or background) to indicate their status. This distinction is necessary to ensure the entire top of the screen is designed properly, system owned and coherent, able to be modified or extended, scale well to smaller form-factors, and not become a dumping ground or high-profile branding opportunity.

Status indicators should use a style that is consistent with the text and menus present on the top panel. In general, these indicators should use colors in a considered and measured way. Icons and indicators must not change rapidly or abruptly (not more than once a second). Icon changes should transition smoothly. See Symbolic Icons.

Status Indicators should not be considered primary interaction points. Any action that is available through a status icon should also be accessible from elsewhere in the design. For example, network access must also be able to be configured through the system preferences / control-center. So, status indicators must not assume that the user can interact with them. They should only expect that they will be used to indicate status. There are a few reasons for this:

* On smaller form factor devices it may be difficult to interact with small icons
* When a high resolution pointer is not available it may be difficult to interact with small icons
* When the user has a disability the icons may be unusable for interaction
* Functionality must be able to be found by and be accessible to someone using desktop or control center search tools

Like all Top Menubar items, the icons should behave as if they are part of a menu-bar. The icons can be clicked with any mouse button but should always perform the same action no matter what button is used.

The order of system status indicators should be (from left to right):

volume-menu

universal-access-menu

power-menu

network-menu

language-menu

bluetooth-menu

Ultimamente desaparecen cosas en Gnome

Solo quiero anotar que algunos (applets-iconos) estan desapareciendo ultimamente del panel para ser exacto un ejemplo de ello es el tiempo y el CTM que una vez cargado el panel,no aparecen a pesar de estar configurados para hacerlo por otro lado tenemos el volumen (applet) que en ubuntu 10.04 está reportado ya como bug porque si se te ocurre quitarlo y/o desaparece,te será dificil tenerlo de vuelta.

Otros usuarios reportan que al descargar algo al escritorio no aparece nada (icono) indicando que el file ha sido descargado allí.

Texto de iconos sin sombra | Gnome DM [.gtkrc-2.0]

Gnome-color-chooser suele tambien eliminar las sombras pero si es solo eso lo que se va a modificar entonces podemos editar el .gtkrc:

style "desktop-icon"
{
NautilusIconContainer::frame_text = 1
NautilusIconContainer::normal_alpha = 0
NautilusIconContainer::highlight_alpha = 255
NautilusIconContainer::dark_info_color = "#444444"
NautilusIconContainer::light_info_color = "#bbbbbb"
}
class "GtkWidget" style "desktop-icon"
Change the text[NORMAL]–color to change the icon name color. dark and light info colors are used for addition icon info, if you have any enabled..

Lo anterior lo puedes editar a tu gusto.

Gnome Gmail | Integración de Gmail en Gnome [Script]

Si estás en el entorno de escritorio GNOME y deseas que el Gmail sea tu controlador de correo predeterminado, vas a tener que especificar un script para lograrlo. Gnome Gmail integra a Gmail en los enlaces de correo electrónico y en los comandos del escritorio de GNOME. Una vez que esté instalado y configurado, cuando se selecciona una dirección URL mailto, o seleccione Enviar Link … de Firefox, Gnome Gmail abre una pantalla en su navegador con un mensaje integrado, listo para enviar. Gnome Gmail también apoya archivos adjuntos y los archivos de Nautilus “Enviar a …” (comandos).

Download el paquete apropiado y double-click para instalar.

Ir a: System -> Preferences ->Preferred Applications, y seleccionar Gmail como preferred Mail Reader.
