BlueBubble + Applets

(If you’re reading this, I finished building and uploading the 32bit packages and the 64bit packages. I suggest you clean your yum cache (yum clean all)

I spent the better part of the yesterday rpmbuilding a better future by rebuilding the past for the present, and the result is quite visible: On the screen, you can see the lock-keys-appket, as well as gnote, gnome-music-applet and the cpu-frequency-monitor applet. Also visible are the trashcan and the show desktop applets, the ‘fast user switch’ applet (Called gdm-classic-user-switch-applet in the repo) and the gnome-volume-control applet which was sadly missing from the initial BlueBubble launch. I’d like to throw a huge ‘thank you’ to Thomas Scheunemann for helping me out with the gnome-volume-control applet. To prevent some conflicts between old-gnome-media and new-gnome-media packages, I decided to package gnome-volume-control as an independent applet. Caveats: Sadly, the gnome-music-applet does not work with Rhythmbox, use Banshee instead (Banshee is actually pretty, unlike Rhythmbox, so I recommend it despite the fact that it’s written in mono). Gnote artificially removed the gnote applet, and I can’t find an easy way to provide ‘just the applet’, so instead, I’m providing gnote-classic, which includes the applet (As well as gnote). You can use Fedora’s gnote, and once launched i’tll display an icon on the notification area, so you don’t actually *need* my package. Some applets don’t show up after you install them. Log out and log back in, and they’ll show up. Magic. There’s this tiny graphical issue with gnome’s network manager. A picture speaks a thousand words, and I decided to take a snapshot of it: If it wasn’t clear, all applets have a light blue background (In my setup, anyway), except for gnome-NetworkManager, which was built on gtk3, where themes are made from css instead of magical rc files.

    Thanks for your great work Juan. I really like GNOME 2, but I didn’t like GNOME 3.
