The current Linux Mint desktop

 Or Flatland Über Alles!
Also, this one marks the return of the Fuzzy Eco Wallpaper, this one is a stock one from the Qiana collection.

An almost complete flat look this time:
Cinnamon theme: Discreet Flat 0.9.1
Icon theme: Moka (as well as Faba, Faba Colors & Faba Mono Icons)


The GTK theme is Qiana's default Mint-X, it is simply perfect, except for the check buttons, with those damn Xs instead of the classier tildes that the Mint-Z used to have... Anyway, progress they call it ;)

My hometown WOEID

Well, maybe, not my hometown ID, but actually my home.
WOEID: ARDF0127
Incidentally, installing the applet on Mint Qiana was a piece of cake.

From ADC To Eternity!


Yes, ADC, in 2014 and still rockin'!
A DVI to miniDiplayPort adapter in the middle, and the venerable ADC to DVI Apple adapter underneath the table.
Everything working flawlessly on Mint Qiana.

Last.fm plugin on Rhythmbox 3.0.2: Fail!


The newest Rhythmbox comes without any plugin, zilch, cero.
So my beloved activity of scrobbling is on pause, at least from the lappie (still doing it at full blast on the Nexus 7, tho...).




Tried to install the plugin by hand, got the package here specifically this one.
Untarred the package and then...

Created the directories:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension
sudo mkdir /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension


And then copied the files:

cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/lib
sudo cp * /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/
cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/share
sudo cp -R * /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/


But it failed... Will keep testing.
