Ubuntu App Showdown 2012 was a Failure, What Will Happen This Year

A little over a year ago Canonical held the first ever Ubuntu App Showdown which resulted in some really cool apps like Fogger, LightRead and many more. Many of these apps brought some new innovative ideas to the Linux landscape especially with apps like Fogger. Unfortunately, in the long term, the Ubuntu App Showdown was a Failure. Will 2013 Showdown be any different?

Linux T-Shirt Concept Design - Linux is Everywhere

I decided that I wanted a Linux related T-Shirt but I couldn't find one that I liked very much...Canonical makes decent shirts for Ubuntu but I want a "Linux in general" shirt not an Ubuntu shirt. I've searched and search, there are plenty of shirts out there but they are typically very poor quality or based solely around the logos of a distribution. Logo shirts are great for distros like Arch, Linux Mint, etc but again I want a "Linux in General" shirt.

How To Disable/Hide Spotify's Tray Menu and Use the Sound Menu or HUD

Some people have expressed wanting to use my Spotify Ambiance theme but to also disable the Tray Menu entirely in order to just use the Sound Menu since having both is rather redundant. I agree with sentiment and this blog post is a tutorial on how to do just that. This tutorial also contains downloads to use the Disable the Tray Menu with the Ambiance theme and with the default Spotify theme.

Ubuntu Ambiance Theme for Spotify plus Radiance Icon

Spotify looks nice in general but Linux is all about customization but Spotify clashes a lot with the default theme of Ubuntu (Ambiance) so I decided to customize it to the Ambiance theme. In this blog post you can find the Download file of this open source theme and the instructions on how to install it. The installation takes very little time and is VERY easy to do BUT it does require making changes as Root. (required because of Spotify's structure of the app)

Spotify's Linux Preview Tray Icon is Ugly and Can't be Changed

Spotify is a great service and their recent updates to their Linux version has fixed all the problems I was having with the program, except for one. Spotify's tray icon on Linux is UGLY and breaks the feel of the desktop ignoring the monochrome style. To make this worse, Spotify decided to make this icon impossible to change yourself. I created an icon that fits well with the desktop style but when I tried to apply it, I found out that Spotify likes their icon so much they refuse to let you change it.

Wunderlist FogApp - Updating from 0.1 to 0.2

The update process for 0.1 to 0.2 is a bit different. I am creating a PPA version and a Non-PPA version of the Wunderlist FogApp for people who don't like using 3rd-party PPAs...which I understand...and for those people I built an in-app Version Checker for informing them of new updates to both the FogApp and to FogApp Themes.

Wunderlist FogApp Themes with Version Updates Checking

Our newly released Wunderlist FogApp 0.2 now has support for Themes, something that is otherwise impossible with Wunderlist. :) The Wunderlist FogApp also supports a version update checking system for the FogApp itself (for non-PPA users) and any installed Themes (for all users). Theme updates are only available for Wunderlist FogApp OFFICIAL Themes as they have to be tested and verified by us (here at Visuex). The downloads for the themes almost must be hosted here at Visuex.com to utilize the Themes Update Checker...if you don't want to use that, then you can host it anywhere you want.

Wunderlist FogApp for Ubuntu 12.04 Released

Wunderlist is an outstanding To-Do List application that has a WebApp and downloads for Android, iOS, Mac OSX, & Windows but unfortunately for my fellow Linux users Wunderlist does not currently have a Linux compatible version of their application. They did used to have one but sadly it does not work for the current version of Ubuntu which is 12.04...so we made our own!
