Evolvere Icon theme (KDE Icon Theme)

Wed, 2015/02/25 - 2:30am

(KDE Icon Theme)
Follow on Google+:

Want some missing icon, report problems? Do it on GitHub page:


All links were removed, download it from GitHub project


Copy/move the content of icons folder to ~/.local/share/icons/, or in /usr/share/icons/ for all users. Use a tweaking tool to choose your icon theme, like Gnome Tweak tool.


1 - Earlier, evolvere icon theme was created exclusively for light environments, however, after several requests I decided to adapt it for dark environments, which you can use it through the variants "dark fallback"

2 - All icons with sizes smaller or equal to 24px are monochromatic (yep, all !!), with very few exceptions, such as emblems and some actions icons. This prevents breakage of standardized icons in some situations. So, if you see small colorful icons, is because they have not yet been adjusted, however, they will be. I plan to create a totally colorful variant, but that future may not be so close.



- Introducing the Flat Vivid Sunken variant


- Various symlinks added;
- Various small icons redesigned;
- tab-close, tab-close-other, tab-detach, tab-duplicate and tab-new-background icons added

Root Actions Servicemenu 2.8.3 (KDE Service Menu)

Tue, 2015/02/24 - 6:23am
ThumbnailRoot Actions Servicemenu 2.8.3
(KDE Service Menu)
Version: 2.8.3

- You need to have "ruby" installed for Automatic installation to work

- From version 2.8 onwards, Root Actions only supports KDE4...Files from version 2.7.3 are included in the package for KDE3 users.
- My mail address can be found in the README file in the package if you wish to contact me for translations or feedback (You can of course also post a comment here)
- I can't test the menu on KDE3 anymore, so I can't guarantee the menu works 100% on KDE3


Root Actions servicemenu provides a convenient way to perform several actions 'as root', from the right-click context menu in KDE filemanagers.

It aims to be distribution agnostic, if you experience issues in your distribution, drop me an email describing the issue.

The menu needs a properly configured kdesu/kdesudo to work (kdesudo is preferred, for some added functionality, like remembering password for a period of time...timeout is configurable by sudo settings)

Any comments, criticism and improvement suggestions welcomed :)

Included in the download are .desktop file versions for KDE3 konqueror, KDE3 dolphin, KDE4 (both konqueror and dolphin) and an importable user action xml file for krusader KDE4...see installation for details.


I've dropped version 1.x from the package since 2.x is stable and can do a lot more than 1.x. If you're still interested in the 1.x version, drop me a mail and I'll send it to you.

Essential: (these should already be installed on a standard KDE installation)
perl -the script is written in perl
kdesu | kdesudo -to gain administrative privileges
kdialog -to show dialogs
kreadconfig -to read kde configuration
dolphin | konqueror -filemanager
kwrite | kate -editor
ark -handles compression

krename -for multiple file (batch) renaming
krusader -to use the included krusader actions
xdg-utils -for default application support (2.5.x-)


Some distributions have packages available in either their main repos or community repos. For easy installation and possible distro specific patches you can use them if available. Manual installation instructions below:

Version 2.3 ->
1. Uncompress the script in Root_Actions_2.x to a directory in your $PATH. /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin are two valid options. Make the script executable (if it's not).

2a. (Konqueror for KDE3) Uncompress the three .desktop files in /konqueror-KDE3 to ~/.kde/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus (This will enable the menu for individual users, if you wish to enable the menu for all users, copy the files to /usr/share/apps/konqueror/servicemenus instead).

2b. (Dolphin for KDE3) Uncompress the two .desktop files in /dolphin-KDE3 to ~/.kde/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus (This will enable the menu for individual users, if you wish to enable the menu for all users, copy the files to /usr/share/apps/d3lphin/servicemenus instead).

2c. (Dolphin and Konqueror for KDE4) Uncompress the two .desktop files in /dolphin-KDE4 to your kde4 servicemenu folder (possibly ~/.kde/share/kde4/services/ServiceMenus...although $KDEHOME [".kde"] can be something else in your distribution). If you wish to use konqueror instead of dolphin as your filemanager, edit 10-rootactionsfolders.desktop by changing 'dolphin' to 'konqueror'.

2d. (Krusader for KDE4) Import krusader_rootactions.xml file in /krusader-KDE4 with krusader's action manager.

----Available Actions----------------------------------------------------------------

Version 2.x
- Open Terminal Here (folders) - open a root terminal session in chosen folder
- Open in File Manager (folders) - open chosen folder(s) in file manager
- Open as Text (files) - open chosen folder(s) in text editor
- Open With ... (both) - open chosen items in a program of your choice

- Copy (both) - copy a single file or folder (ADDED in 2.1)
- Move/Rename (both) - if multiple items selected and a batch renamer installed (default is krename) start renamer, otherwise use a simple move/rename dialog
- Compress (both) - Compress selected files/folders (ADDED in 2.7)
- Delete (both) - Completely removes chosen items (as this is potentially hazardous, there is an extra confirmation dialog), handy for removing back-up files etc.

- Ownership to Root (both) - change ownership of chosen items to root:root
- Ownership to Active User (both) - change ownership of chosen items to current user
- Ownership to ... (both) - change ownership of chosen items to UID:GID of your choice

- Change Permissions (both) - change permissions of chosen items
If only a single folder is selected, permissions/ownership can be set recursively. If changing permissions recursively, files are only set executable if they already are executable (Otherwise all files in a directory would be set executable if the parent folder is set executable, which is necessary for the folder to be accessible)

----Translating and customizing:-----------------------------------------------------

2.8.3 KF5 quick fix
- Removed root reminders for now because of kf5/qt5 compatibility (no "--caption" option support)
- I'll try to add them back if I find a way to do that. TIP: Setting a different theme/color scheme for root will help you distinguish root apps even without the reminders.

2.8.2 Hopefully refixed the issue originally fixed in 2.7.4/2.8 and reverted in 2.8.1
- Using dbus-run-session, which is a better solution than dbus-launch.
- dbus-run-session is only available in dbus 1.8.x >, so the fix will only work with newer dbus releases, but the menu will still work with older versions (but the bug is obviously not fixed with that version).

2.8.1 "Out with the new, in with the old and tested" -release
- Revert "dbus-launch fix" in 2.7.4/2.8 as this is a suboptimal solution to the problem see "Known Issues". I'll revisit the original issue once dbus-run-session trickles down from upstream dbus.
- Reorganize package to move KDE3 files to a separate directory (Still hoping to get to that code clean-up part on the KDE4 version)

2.8 Reupload 2.7.4 as 2.8 since this version does not support KDE3 anymore (KDE3 files from version 2.7.3 are still included in the package for those that use KDE3)

2.7.4 Bugfix
- Use dbus-launch when starting applications as root (should fix dbus issues like not being able to open files from file manager that was opened as root) REVERTED in 2.8.1

2.7.3 Bugfix
- Fixed GHNS installation bug in 2.7.2 (forgot to update install script)

2.7.2 Translation release
- Added Swedish translation

2.7.1 GHNS bugfix & translation release
- GHNS: Create servicemenu directory (if it doesn't exist) with the install script
- Added Slovene translation

2.7 (Stable)
- Improve filemanager and texteditor fallbacks if xdg-mime fails to detect default applications
- Changes from 2.6:
1. Compress action (using ark)
2. GHNS installation in KDE4 dolphin
- GHNS installation is still a recent addition, so there may be issues with it, but it should be safe to try (the worst thing that should happen is that the installation fails).
- 2.7 is likely the last version that supports KDE3. I can't test the menu on KDE3 anymore, and dropping KDE3 workarounds would allow me to clean up the code. I'd still include 2.7 for KDE3 but no new features.

2.6.99 (2.7 RC2)
- Try removing version number from the tarball to see if it fixes a few issues with GHNS
- Edit GHNS scripts accordingly

2.6.98 (2.7 RC)
- Fix install/uninstall scripts when using kdesu or xdg-su

2.6.96 (2.7 beta4)
- Fix install/uninstall dialogs in older versions of KDE (pre 4.6)
- Uninstallation dialog made a bit more informative
- Small fixes in the install/uninstall scripts
- Test removing the extract-directory in $KDEHOME/share/apps/servicemenu-download/ when uninstalling, dolphin's servicemenu uninstallation doesn't seem to do that for some reason.
- No changes to the servicemenu itself.

2.6.94 (2.7 beta3)
- EXPERIMENTAL: Added install/uninstall scripts for GHNS in dolphin (for testing only)
- No changes to the servicemenu itself.

2.6.92 (2.7 beta2)
- Bytesize bugfix to fix an issue with kdesu on KDE SC 4.6

2.6.90 (2.7 beta1)
- Added "Compress" menu option, brings up ark compression dialog (as root) to choose filename, format etc.
- Consider compress option a beta feature...all testing feedback welcome.

2.6 "Stable"
- Fixed bug with default application detection on desktop files with kde4-prefix

2.5.92 (2.6_beta2) (hopefully just) temporary bugfix
- removed "--overwrite" option from normal copy and move operations (fix error in older versions of KDE). The "advanced" noninteractive mode still uses the option (So it'll work on KDE SC 4.5 only).

2.5.90 (2.6_beta1) kde-cp and kde-mv
- Use kde-cp and kde-mv (if available) instead of cp and mv (This should prevent accidental overwrites by bringing up KDE's overwrite dialog). If you prefer the old "noninteractive" behavior, change $CPDIALOGS to "false" in the script (recommended for "advanced" users only)
- Some optimizations on the default application checks (removing redundancies)
- Refreshed requirements. xdg-utils is an optional requirement (default application checks need it, but the menu will work without it)

2.5.0 (Default applications, TESTING)
- KDE4 desktop files should now use your chosen default applications for "File Manager" and "Text Editor" actions.
- As I cannot test the changes in KDE3, KDE3 desktop files still use hardcoded applications (which you can change by editing the desktop files)
- As this also includes some changes in the code, it may contain bugs (please report if you run into any). It should work, but consider this a testing release (there is only so much I can test myself).

2.4.11 Bugfix
- Changed "terminal" icon to "utilities-terminal" in KDE4 desktop files (and krusader xml)...fixes missing icon in "open terminal here" action for KDE SC 4.5
- Also made KDE3 desktop files consistent in using konsole icon

GameMode 0.2 (KWin Scripts)

GameMode 0.2
(KWin Scripts)
Simple scriplet which makes a definable list of windows block the compositor when they move into fullscreen mode (predefined are videoplayer, but it can be extended with games, sw. like celestia or stellarium ;-)

The script does not have a config GUI - i\'m not even sure that\'s supported atm. but after installation you can edit the list in ~/.kde/share/apps/kwin/scripts/gamemode/contents/code/main.js

(afaik atm. you\'ll have to restart \"kwin --replace &\" to effectively update the script)

- listen to all added clients, check whether they're fullscreen and apply (kodi case)
- add "kodi" to list

ModernBird 1.0 (Theme/Style (other))

Fri, 2015/02/20 - 10:52pm
ThumbnailModernBird 1.0
(Theme/Style (other))
A fresher, more modern, look for Thunderbird.

=========== Installation ==========

put userChrome.css in: ~/.thunderbird/j3lqgeja.default/chrome/

I don\'t know if the subfolder is called \"j3lqgeja.default\" for everyone, but the interesting part is obviously to get to the \"chrome\" folder where Thunderbird looks for the userChrome.css

If you have one already, back it up before replacing with the one you download form here.

Note that the folder pane background follows your "Alternative Background" color which is set in System Preferences.

Only current drawbacks of this tweak are texts like "To", "Subject", "From" and also the byte size of attachments. The color of that text is a bit too bleak.

Check out the preview image and see if this tweak is something for you or not.
It shows my beloved spam-folder.
