Gnome Color Chooser - modifying the font and color

Update: this post can be found also on my Linux Blog called Ubuntu4Beginners :)

For some time I wanted to change my panel's font but I didn't know how to do it! One day, looking on deviantart.com for some inspiration for my conky script I saw on one picture a nice panel with beautiful font.


After that I've started to search a simple tutorial or a simple program which could change the font of my panel. My salvation was the program Gnome Color Chooser.

The features of this program are:
  • change colors (e.g. background, window decoration, tooltips)
  • change sizes of widgets (e.g. of buttons, scrollbars or the main padding)
  • allow use of bright or dark wallpapers without getting icons or panel text unreadable
  • adjust the size of start and panel menues or large toolbars
  • colorize desktop icons and activate hover effects
  • configure your gtk engines and let your current theme be drawn by an installed gtk engine of your choice
OK, I admit that I've used this program only for changing the font but you can do all that features from above. Is your choice!

This program I've installed on my Ubuntu Karmik Koala system and let me explain in short how I've done it!

Click on the System - Administration - Synaptic Package Manager
You will be prompted to put your administration password. After that in the Search field put gnome color chooser and click on Mark for Installation. The final step is to click on Apply button.



If everything is working correct you should find the program in the System - GNOME Color Chooser.

Or you can enter in the terminal (press ALT+F2 and write Gnome-terminal) and write


sudo apt-get install gnome-color-chooser

Tip: if you write for example in terminal sudo apt-get install gnome-co and after that you press TAB key two times you will see that will appear all the programs/scripts that begins with gnome-co characters and that are on synaptic or in our repositories from source.list. This is helpful when you don't remember exactly the name of a program or maybe you don't know how is correctly written.

An other way to install is entering on the program's website http://gnomecc.sourceforge.net/ and download and install from there (this I haven't tried).

This is how my panel looks now with my font changed (I've print screen it all my desktop):

For understanding how to change the font and also the colors you can watch on this youtube video. It's the tutorial from where I've heard about this program, and I thank to Caesarjulii for putting this how to on the web.




Also I've inspired from this site: Decolonized Pagan

Give this tool a try and hope that you'll be satisfied with it!

Install Heroes Of Might and Magic 3 on Ubuntu Linux

This is an other small tutorial on how to install a game on Ubuntu Linux. Until now I've already explained how to install Football Manager 2011 on Ubuntu and I've seen that a lot of people are entering on my blog looking how to do that.
I think that you know Heroes 3 and that you've played in Windows but the story and the game play is calling you to play it also in Linux, no? First we have to download and install this game.
Download

I think that this is the easiest step, you just have to search on Google something like this download heroes 3 linux and I'm definitively sure that you'll find a site from which to download the game files ;).
Installation
After downloading the game you have to install it. If the *.iso file is compressed in a  *.bz2 file you have to uncompressed it. After that write in the Terminal this, after you go with cd command in the folder where the iso file is:
sudo mount -t iso9660 -o loop HMM3-Linux.iso /mnt/fakecd
