is there a repo somewhere? if not, could you please move development to github or bitbucket or so?

would make things easier. - Feb 24 2014
thanks for the info!

but even if it isn’t your fault, we could still implement it ourselves, e.g. by calling

metaflac --show-tag REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN $filename

if that outputs a line, it is already tagged and we can skip it. - Feb 23 2014
hi, as i have increasingly more FLAC files, i notice that running QtGain over my whole library makes it blaze across MP3 files (I guess it skips them if they are tagged – good).

But it reprocesses every FLAC file. can you make it skip FLACs that are already tagged, as well? - Feb 13 2014
nice!

what do you think about how the main window can be changed? - Jun 29 2011
Ok, at first it isn’t a mockup, but a fully functional replacement of the current ui files (you can compile the program with them)

i’ll respond to your issues individually:

1. the gnome HIG tell us that separators aren’t to be used if not really necessary: http://developer.gnome.org/hig-book/stable/controls-frames.html
furthermore i think that space isn’t an issue at all. the window is still small enough to fit on any netbook/tablet screen.

2. if you think it looks better this way, you can set the “flat” property on the groupboxes. if the lines are not shown, you are right; vertical alignment is probably better.
also, you could move the status to a statusbar, although the designer is limited in a way that doesn’t let you do it. i did it manually: http://paste.kde.org/89149 - Jun 28 2011
Here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/?ospy9k6y62qa603

If you don’t like it: It’s just a quick hack. We can build upon it.

But using layouts and standard widgets like groupboxes is always better than imitating them (e.g. using manual placement instead of layouts and a bold label as header for a setting group instead of a groupbox)

it’s better because it looks native on every platform (e.g. group headers are aligned and formatted like the ui guidelines of the platform want them) and is semantically meaningful (e.g. blinds get to know which settings are grouped under a common label) - Jun 25 2011
Hi, I love this application, but I think the GUI really needs an improvement.

I did it (by organizing everything in layouts) and i think the outcome isn’t perfect, but really an improvement.

where can I contribute? should I just upload them somewhere? - Jun 25 2011

that would be a good idea if there was a public repo.

there’s more to a theme like this than what’s in the package, i.e. build scripts and layered image files. maybe scss/sass/less/stylus files, too.

i think it’s time the author puts this in a public repo and allows someone whom he trusts and who has got more time to merge pull requests from us. i’d gladly contribute this way! - May 21 2013
the problem is that the sprite sheet for the last symbol isn’t cut. easy to fix.

another thing that doesn’t work is the inspector’s tree view: everything there is unstyled, making it ugly (no syntax highlighting), but more importantly unusable due to missing expand/contract icons. - Feb 21 2013
nice, thanks! - Oct 18 2011
i adapted it visually to the new google theme, thought i’d share.

hi jimmy,
since i use a dark color scheme, i use the siverish faenza icons instead of the black ones.

it would be cool if you include them, too :D - Oct 13 2011
Hi Jimmy, the new site looks great. I really appreciate what you do.

Could you please give me a status update on the two main features i look forward to?

1. One second delay or three pixels mouse movement after holding down the mouse button start the window dragging

2. Let Oxygen-gtk draw the scrollbars - Sep 27 2011
is it possible to make the dragging lazier, i.e. wait before the dragging starts until the mouse moved three pixels away from the grabbing spot or a second has passed (whatever happens first)? - Aug 16 2011
this theme has both - Jul 18 2011
th only area where i noticed that is scrollbars: changing their width doesn’t work with this theme applied.

but you do the best possible job! i can’t spot any other differences. - Jul 17 2011
2-3 pixels of not-movingness around the clicking spot would be ideal, alternatively a small waiting time before it starts.

at the very last, it should really not start right when you click, only when starting to drag. - Jul 17 2011
self cite, since you seem to have missed it:

you just fixed the special case. all other arrow panels are still like this.

why don’t you just change the selector of the following snippet?

Quote:
menupopup,popup,panel {

background-color: rgb(250,245,236) !important;

background-image:-moz-linear-gradient(20% 60% 90deg,rgb(225,220,212),rgba(252,247,237,0.85)) !important;

-moz-border-top-colors:rgb(215,210,202) rgb(255,255,255) !important;

-moz-border-left-colors:rgb(196,192,184) rgb(254,249,240) !important;

-moz-border-right-colors:rgb(196,192,184) rgb(253,248,238) !important;

-moz-border-bottom-colors:rgb(156,153,147) transparent !important;

}




because the selector “menupopup,popup,panel” selects arrowpanels, too. “menupopup,popup,panel:not([type="arrow"])” doesn’t.

if i made a mistake and “:not()” doesn’t work with attribute selectors, you can just add “border:none!important; background: transparent none!important” to the selector “panel[type="arrow"]”. - Jul 12 2011

could you make it an option instead?

i happen to like it. - Jul 05 2011
the small version isn’t available for faenza, though. - Jun 29 2011
oh, i didn’t know a small version was available, thanks!

but replacing the small variants with an automatic css selector would be cool, i guess. - Jun 29 2011
yay! love it!

…of course the first bug appeared right away: the faenza-new-tab-icon is too big and causes the tabbar to inflate.

solution: add a 16-px-version and add

toolbar[iconsize="small"] #new-tab-button {
list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/subskins/icon_themes/Faenza/toolbar/tab_new_16.png");
}
- Jun 29 2011
i can’t wait! - Jun 29 2011
go another bug plus fixing directions for you. arrow panels.

1.:
you’ll have to replace these:
* [url]chrome://global/skin/icons/panelarrow-vertical.svg[/url]
* [url]chrome://global/skin/icons/panelarrow-horizontal.svg[/url]

the vanilla ones are there: [url]resource:///chrome/toolkit/skin/classic/global/arrow/[/url]

2.:
for the styling, you won’t have to do much more than to take take this vanilla stylesheet:
https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/file/a5f732abf109/toolkit/themes/gnomestripe/global/popup.css

and change the styling of “.panel-arrowcontent” to the styling you use for “menupopup, popup, panel”

and remove border and background for “panel[type="arrow"]”

––––––

you can test arrow panels by installing the “f1” extension or visiting http://openrouteservice.org/ - May 12 2011
they are both useful. DarkDefault, because you can spot text/background mismatches very fast (window text color on content background color is white/white, and vice versa)

and checkcolorroles, because it shows you EVERY mismatch :)

thanks for looking into it! - Apr 25 2011

these colors represent the colors of the gtk theme.. it's not what we want here

i see. i always use oxygen-gtk, so these colors match my system’s.

also yay for dark theme support. please test your theme also with the following color schemes: “DarkDefault” and “CheckColorRoles” - Apr 22 2011
hi, i use a high contrasted theme, using light on dark for windows and dark on light for content areas (e.g. the address bar)

since 3.1 the border color of the current tab is way to bright, as well as the upper color of the gradient.

app tabs are still under the line below the tab-bar, and the new tab-button is now like that as well.

aside: why don’t you use colors such as Window/WindowsText, -moz-Field/-moz-FieldText, or ButtonFace/ButtonText/ButtonHighlight instead of putting the rgb values everywhere? - Apr 21 2011
cool. i got more insight, too. here some selectors

whole button when the non-arrow-part os hovered:
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"]:hover[buttonover]

whole button when the arrow-part is hovered:
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"]:hover:not([buttonover])

non-arrow-part:
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"] > toolbarbutton

the arrow-part should be:
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"] > dropmarker - Mar 29 2011
ah, i see, a special oxygen setting. a bit awkward, but i have no idea how else to do it.

would you mind reading my comment above this one? (http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=117962&forumpage=43&PHPSESSID=ca3b4917534971532861af92a41a5866#c402942) - Mar 28 2011
…do you use in the screenies? - Mar 25 2011
toolbarbuttons with type="menu-button" are a bit broken.

compare e.g. the scriptish- or firebug-button with and without the following userstyle:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul);
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"]>* {
margin:-4px 0 -4px -4px!important;
padding: 0 4px;
}
- Mar 25 2011
would you please add a third option to the setting “Remove the arrows of tool-bar containers”?

there are AFAIK 3 types of toolbaritems/button with dropdown-arrows:

only-menu buttons:
toolbarbutton[type="menu"]
menu buttons:
toolbarbutton[type="menu-button"]
bookmark folders:
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[container]


while bookmark folders don’t need the arrow to show that they yield dropdown-menus (they have folder icons), the arrows can be useful on only-menu buttons, and are absolutely necessary on menu buttons (because they are divided into two areas, which you can hit with your mouse and do different things)

So it would be cool to have three options:
  • Hide all arrows (except the ones on 2-part buttons)
  • Hide arrows on bookmark folders
  • Don’t hide arrows
  • - Mar 12 2011

    the following style paints a white border below my tabs. why?

    #tabbrowser-tabs[tabsontop="true"] > .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]):not(:-moz-lwtheme), #tabbrowser-tabs[tabsontop="true"] > .tabbrowser-tab[pinned] {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #F7F7F6 !important;
    margin-bottom: -1px;
    padding-bottom: 0;

    splitmenu {color: windowtext} - Feb 02 2011
    even pre-baked, thx :D - Jan 14 2011

    until the next update, can you tell me the id of the elemets so i can use a userstyle as hotfix? - Jan 14 2011

    hi, i like some ideas that make parts of the theme really gorgeous (if you choose a non-win95 color scheme), but other parts are imho lacking.

    i’d like to hear your opinion on those:

    1. progress bars from the center are unfortunate. if the missing parts are on both sides, i never can seem to get at a glance how much the value is. i’d like a “progress bar from the left” option

    2. The checkbox-× doesn’t correspond to the close button and the clear-textfield button, it fades rather than being pointed. i’d like it unified

    3. the new KDE 4.10 application menu window button is missing

    4. i’d like to hide the groove for the scrollbar handle, or use a groove as wide as the handle itself, not a smaller one.

    5. combobox arrow handle width is dependent on scrollbar width: i like a narrow scollbar, but the combobox arrows will stick out if i make the scrollbar too small

    6. i’d like to have an option to drag by every window part, not only the title bar, (and consequently an option to not color the title bar differently than the rest of the window)

    7. if the border width is et to 0, there’s no way to resize the window without using the keyboard. i’d like to be able to specify the width of an invisible resize handle extending beyond the border (i.e. 2 pixels around the physical border of the window)

    8. i don’t like the tooltips at all. that hard black border looks ugly and the yellow in the color schemes comes straight from the 90ies :)

    all in all i really like it, but a bit more customizability in those areas would make it truly gorgeous.

    the things i especially like is the drawing of the tree view (black circles for expandable tree items) and the subtle border around selected and hovered list/tree items, as well as the insert-caret when hovering a textbox - Feb 24 2013

    hi, i found out that you can configure amarok and kwin to utilize this taskbar:

    1. configure amarok not to show the tray icon
    2. make the amarok window unclosable via Alt+F3 → Advanced → Special Settings for This Window → Appearance → Closable - Nov 20 2011

    to fix it, i’d save the kde directory to a variable at the beginning, and then reuse this directory everywhere

    if [ "$UID" -eq "$ROOT_UID" ]; then
    khd="/usr/share/icons"
    else
    if [ -d "$HOME/.kde" ]; then
    khd="$HOME/.kde/share/icons"

    hi, two things:
    1. the script tries to copy over “KFaenza Dark”, but i can’t find a download link anywhere? where is it? (i assume it’s the version with the silverish toolbar icons instead of the black ones)

    2. in kubuntu, the kde directory in $HOME is “.kde”, not “.kde4”; the script should detect and use the real one - Oct 28 2011
