Amazon way.

Missing Icons in Buttons (Firefox, Ubuntu Natty)

5. May, 2011

If your firefox has forgotten about all the nice icons for button in the UI (i.e. if there is a back button but it has no label or icon and all the “close tab” buttons are just tiny little invisible buttons), this bug is for you: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ia32-libs/+bug/641056

If you start Firefox from the console, you’ll see errors like this one:

(firefox-bin:30535): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading icon: Unable to load image-loading module: /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so: /usr/lib/gdk-pixbuf-2.0/2.10.0/loaders/libpixbufloader-png.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64


The “Minority Report” User Interface

Do you know the famous MovieOS? If not, follow the link.

If so, and you’ve seen “Minority Report“, you probably guessed that the fancy manipulations Tom Cruise was doing at the start of the movie was “Movie OS 2.0″.

It’s not. It’s real. You can buy that and have it installed. Visit g-speak.
