15 New wallpapers appeared in Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx

The winners from the Ubuntu Artwork Flickr submission contest have been chosen!

And here they are:

If you are using Lucid Lynx, but don’t have these, update your system and they should appear.

Oh, you are not using Lucid Lynx? It’s OK, just click on the image and right-click-save-as.

Or if you prefer, download them from launchpad, extract and enjoy!

gmusicbrowser adds desktop layout “Lyrics”

As I wrote you before, that gmusicbrowser added desktop and layoutitem widgets plugin, now another cool widget is reaching this great player – the Lyrics one – a nice scrolling widget, displaying the lyrics of the currently playing song on your desktop.

It can be added to your desktop through Settings menu, then go to Plugins tab, check Desktop widgets plugin and then from the menu select Lyrics, and click Add.

You must have in mind, that this widget is still only in the development version of gmusicbrowser, so if you want to have it, you must compile the source of gmusicbrowser:

git clone git://gmusicbrowser.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/gmusicbrowser/gmusicbrowser

and then to follow the instructions from the INSTALL file. Or if you don’t want to mess with these, there is already compiled package at my repo:

Don’t hesitate to give a try to this amazing player, already default on my system. You will stay surprised of its speed and low memory footprint!

Esfera: New UI Element Proposal For Ubuntu 10.10

Mark Shuttleworth posted a suggestion he got from Pablo Quirós for the free space on the top right window corner (now that the button(s) will be placed on the left side of the Metacity), on the Ayatana mailing list.

The proposal is a new UI element for the windows in Ubuntu called Esfera which should be placed in the free space on the top-right of the windows. The button will basically support gestures which you can perform on that window, like a joystick.

You can read the rest of the article and download the PDF with full specs of Esfera @ Web Upd8
