Can you elaborate on what you mean by “package the themes”?


#42

@IndiJones76 I plan to add dynamic theme loading and they could be selected from the applet properties . The extra themes are made by brokoli , not me . So if I put them all in my repository it will be a bad thing .

@Wimpy Have to be more clear , sorry . The themes made by @brokoli .


#43

Packaging has commenced. I’ll provide a PPA soon.


#44

Thats a great news. :smiley:


#45

Ok, i forked the repository from @brokoli and added icon themes for Numix an Arc.
i will add more themes soon.

Numix

Arc

Menta


#46

Where’s the ppa, do you have any predictions yet?


#47

You can freely add all my themes to repozitory. I don’t mind and even would be pleased :slight_smile:


#48

@IvCHo mate-window-applets is packages for Debian/Ubuntu and upload to Debian unstable awaiting final review.

@brokoli @IndiJones76 I would like to ship your themes for mate-window-applets in Ubuntu MATE 18.04. Can you please make sure you update your GitHub repos to clearly license your work so I can comply for packaging policies? Thanks!


#49

what license should it be? Isn’t it already compatible? I’m new to all this stuff.


#50

Usualy since its open source it needs to be either a gpl ,lgpl or mit .


#51

@brokoli I see you’ve already selected GPLv3. So I’m good to go :slight_smile:


#52

I also have the license on GPL v3.


#53

I’ve add a new theme sinse last reply and improved arc theme behavior, so maybe you’ll want to use them.


#54

Can’t open your repository. Have you delete it?


#55

Yes I have . I moved to xfce for reasons + I don’t have mutch time . And I am not developing it anymore . I have a copy of the src if someone wan’ts to fork it.


#56

There’s also the recently revived Window Buttons applet from GNOME Panel, if someone wants to fork it for MATE and share code between them.


#57

I was thinking the same thing . The only thing need to be done is transition from the gnome-panel API to mate-panel API a.k.a rename some function names and replace libgnome panel applet with libmate panel applet , since mate panel applet and gnome panel ( from flashback ) originate from the old gnome panel code.


#58

Maybe you can give me the copy so i can at least upload the current version if somebody want to install it?
