I personally prefer the OpenSolaris look for Gnome because it`s more clearly then Ubuntu`s Humanlooks.
It`s possible to install this theme under almost any system running Gnome.
The easiest way is installing the proper package from http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Nimbus+(+Debian+and+Ubuntu+packages+)?content=70212
This site contains the packs for Ubuntu 8.04, 8.10 and Debian (both x86 and x86_64).
Another way is compiling and installing the latest version. This is how it goes!
Install the proper requirements and the source;
apt-get -y install build-essential libgtk2.0-dev intltool icon-naming-utils fakeroot devscripts debhelper
tar -xf nimbus-0.1.2.tar.bz2
Next step; compiling the source
chmod +x debian/rules
Install the binary;
sudo make install
Select the theme in Gnome.
The Ubuntu kernel guys have released an “official” build of the 2.6.29 Linux Kernel which came out tonight. The .deb files work for both Ubuntu and Debian! (and outdated, stable and test releases like Ubuntu 9.04 jaunty jackalope.
The included kernel files have been compiled using the generic ubuntu configuration but lack ubuntu specific drivers. Note: nVIDIA ForceWare drivers are automaticly installed using DKMS (which is included in Ubuntu 8.10)
The files can be found at http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.29/
- Download http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.29/linux-headers-2.6.29-020629_2.6.29-020629_all.deb
- Download your kernel headers package;
- Download your kernel compile;
- Install the files in the same order as mentions above! (doing step 1 and 2 the other way around isn`t possible!)
For lazy guys console freaks; dpkg -i *.deb
(Notice: the console have to be in the same directory as the downloads and no other .deb packages should be there – else they also get installed)
- Reboot and select the kernel from the bootloader menu
