My unstable Gnome build has some issues with the coloring of focused widgets, e.g. selected tabs look like this:
The same thing happens for empty treeviews: those appear completely colored blue instead of in the regular white. I have no idea how to investigate this further, therefore I’m blogging this. Is this GTK+, the theme engine or something else?
Update: It seems this is the Clearlooks engine doing some strange focus drawing. Not sure whether it’s intentional, but it’s very annoying and causes e.g. flickering screens when using sloppy focus (open 2 empty nautilus windows and move your mouse to check). Please revert to something sane! Thanks.
Update 2: It seems I’ve unintenionally heated up a discussion. Those interested in this issue may want to CC themselves to bug 480636.
Too bad there is just too much stop energy in this desktop-devel-list thread about using DOAP in Gnome to enable people to do awesome things with Semantic Web technologies.
Since the Ubuntu packages are horribly out of date, rendering the great Muine music player totally useless on Ubuntu systems because of this long-standing Ubuntu Muine bug, I’ve built Muine 0.8.8 packages for Ubuntu:
You can download and install these files by typing
sudo dpkg -i muine_0.8.8-0uws_i386.deb muine-plugin-inotify_0.8.8-0uws_i386.deb muine-plugin-trayicon_0.8.8-0uws_all.deb in a terminal in the directory you downloaded these files to.
Note that I don’t use Ubuntu myself, and that these packages have been built on a friend’s laptop, so don’t complain too much. Thanks!
Today I’ve grown exactly 25 years old.
Happy birthday to me!
