There is no harm in reporting bugs at https://bugs.launchpad.net/elementary. It’s much more effective than just a Google+ post, as others can mark the bug as affecting them, developers actually see it, and it can be tracked.

Instead of asking on Google+ first, consider reporting the bug then sharing the link with your post on Google+ so there’s a point of reference.

Quick question - is it possible to use Granite with Python (and it's PyGObject)? Or is Vala the only available choice at the moment?

i'm running freya as my daily driver right now . i like Ubuntu - it's fine.. but bloated. Elementary OS is very elegant Linux distro . I've been in IT for 25 years and would love to help out somehow. So if the team reads this community,  i'd like to help out

You can just use the built in pulse audio cli i think. But you can install several alternatives from the ubuntu repos.

Any experts in Linux packaging out there willing to spend some time helping me correctly finish some packages for a Python app I've been working on?

I am looking to package up my app for Ubuntu, Fedora, and Arch. I've already got things set up and working with pip, and an Ubuntu PPA ready to receive the package. Just looking for a bit of help with the final steps since I have never done this before.

I installed chrome 64bit which didn't launch and then my wifi icon disappeared on my macbook pro 64bit, so I uninstalled chrome and did an auto remove in the terminal and re installed  wifi network app from the software center and restated computer.

Chrome is gone, but wifi icon is still gone.  How can I add the wifi icon and chrome 64bit?

Only 6 more committers with 200+ rep needed! That could be new committers, or existing committers can earn rep by answering questions in Unix & Linux http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/elementary-os

Let's do it! We're so close!

Ok, i have been for a week at holiday, and i didnt worked on it during this time. But I dont want that you guys have to wait so long for it and some many people wanted it. Im releasing now a realy preversion of it. Its way not finished, and there are still some weird things (like the darkmode apps, if they are in backdrop the old window-controls are showing). So dont think, its done, its useable, but some things are still ugly/weirdlooking. You can continue editing it, or change it. Would be cool to share it. Soooo ... yeah. I wanna have it done in a week or something, and than, hopefully, its done. So heres the NOT FINISHED Version: https://github.com/Keilbritschn/elementaryOS-Fluch-theme/

(Change to the theme with the tweaktool, and set the Gtk-Theme and Metacity-Theme to this theme)

+Ivan Dokov It is CS6. It works ok. For sure on a native OS better, but for the simple things like working with layers, editing photos and so on its ok :) Didnt found something atm, that didnt worked. Would be happy about a good alternative for Linux, that does have a simillar UI and working method like photoshop.

Hello, Is there any solution to group some indicators in one icon? I mean, I would like to keep all my cloud indicators in one "folder" in wingpanel. I thought I saw once something similar on ubuntu.

Hi there!!
I'm trying to compile this branch https://code.launchpad.net/~wingpanel-devs/wingpanel/libwingpanel
but I get a lot of errors http://hastebin.com/egefoluvec.vbs

I'm suspecting this is somehow related to an indicator vapi not being picked up somehow. Can anyone help???

Hey everyone, I am a recent Elementary OS convert and would like to stay in for the long haul. I think you have a great thing going and have been looking for a legitimate contender to the commercial OSs and I truly believe that Elementary could be the game changer. I just wanted to make a comment about the bug list. There seems to be a focus on bugs in Elementary applications rather than elementary itself. Out of the 7 bugs listed as Critical, 6 are related to midori or scratch. Only 1 is OS related. I think its great to make beautiful, simple apps and agree totally with the philosophy, but in the grand scheme of things, I really sorry to say this...but, there are people at the moment who do browsers and text editors better, and the best all run on Elementary, and run well. I'm running Chrome and Sublime perfectly so Midori and Scratch don't actually ever get opened.

One of the complaints I see from naysayers in the community about Elementary is the slow turnaround time for updates. I'm running updates every day and I know that they are coming out regularly, but focusing on apps seems to me to be not the most ideal allocation of resources.  

I want to be one of those nerds that when someone in the future that says, "oooh have you heard about the Elementary OS, all the cool kids are using it now", can say that I was there in the beginning, when the it all started. It would be great for Linus, who doesn't really like Ubuntu/debian to say that Elementary changed his mind. 

Sorry about the rant. I've just fallen in love with Elementary and I don't want my love affair to end suddenly, with me standing in the rain with a bunch of flowers in my hand that nobody remembering who they were for.

this (indeed gorgeous) theme works with Freya
This GTK theme is fantastic, but installing it isn't.

Started using Elementary OS Freya on my netbook (with modest specs) and absolutely loved the experience. I believe this is the next big linux distro in the making....

I would like to get my hands dirty (and my programming skills sharper) and develop some apps for Elementary OS. I have thought of starting of with a app for network related functions (i.e. nmap) which I find missing on the linux ecosystem. How do I run shell commands and capture their output into the UI using Vala...Any ideas which app's code I can study to get started ?

+Jason Keenan​: Indeed Jason, once I have got the basics correct and have a good understanding of how elementary functions, I definitely want to contribute to the open bugs resolution. This app is just a better way and more useful way to do "Hello World".....thanks for your thoughts again...
