Gnome Places

The Gnome Places screenlet is a modified version of the Places screenlet that ships with the screenlets package. It's purpose is to show you a list of your Gnome Places (Gtk bookmarks). Gnome Places is meant to be a replacement for the Original Places. If people find the changes useful then I hope to eventually get Gnome Places included in the Screenlets package.

Gnome Places differs from the original Places in the following ways:

New features
- Better icon scaling. Icons are now MUCH clearer when you scale the screenlet above 100%
- Place names too long to fit on one line are truncated according to the width set in the properties dialog.
- User now has option to show or hide the "Desktop" entry in the Places list.
- User now has option to show or hide the "Home" entry in the Places list.
- User now has option to show or hide the Icons in the Places list.
- Wrote custom draw_triangle function to improve the triangle control used to expand/contract the documents list

Performance improvements
- We cache the folder icon instead of performing an SVG->bitmap conversion several times per redraw.
- Eliminated some unneeded redraws
- Lengthened "bookmarks changed" polling time from 4 seconds to 10 seconds.

Bug fixes
- Fixed font handling. Fonts set by themes now work properly. Also, user's font size choice is now respected.
- We now set the window shape properly thereby avoiding a bug where overly transparent (or undrawn) areas of the screenlet do not detect mouse movement or mouse clicks
- More themes!! (default, Elegant Brit, Sky Blue)

Note: Gnome Places was adapted from the Places screenlet created by Helder Fraga (aka Whise)
Note: Portions of Gnome Places was written by Matjaz Pecan (aka Risethagain)

Installing in Ubuntu from a PPA
To install this software in Ubuntu from a PPA open a terminal and run the
following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:hernejj/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnomeplacesscreenlet

Installing manually
Installing this screenlet is as easy as copying the GnomePlaces folder to the
correct location on your computer.

If you wish to install this screenlet in the main screenlets folder so every
user on the system can use it then copy the RecentlyUsed folder to

sudo cp -r GnomePlaces /usr/share/screenlets

If you wish to install this screenlet in your home folder so only your user can
use it then copy the GnomePlaces folder to ~/.screenlets/

mkdir ~/.screenlets
cp -r GnomePlaces ~/.screenlets

NOTE: You *must* have the screenlets package installed before you can use this
software. To install the screenlets package in Ubuntu use the following command:

sudo apt-get install screenlets


* 0.1
- Initial version.

* 0.2
- Fixed bug causing the hover selection NOT to appear when mouse enters from the top or bottom of screenlet.

* 1.2
- Fixed ellipsizing

Dude! Great work! Much better than the original IHMO fixed a number of "irks".

I had a feature request, but I totally can't remember it atm. I'll post later if I do.

This signature is lame.
