Thanks! I'm using Arch Linux, so I cannot test the PPA, but I tried building from git and stumbled upon a problem in the makefile, should be fixed now.

edit: I have stumbled upon another problem now: I was using the official gmusicbrowser version and there was a layout "Queue, Library & Context" which is now missing in the shimmer version:

Layout 'Queue, Library & Context' not found, using 'Shimmer Desktop' instead

Has it got lost somehow or has it been removed intentionally? :)

edit2: I noticed that some icons are to small: Can they be enlarged or would it be bad in some situations (say, the buttons are to small for the icons)?
I have realized that my Gimp skills are almost non-existent, so if you feel like completing the dark theme (three icons missing: gmb-filter, gmb-library and gmb-random), please feel free to do so. :)
Thanks, seems to have worked now. I will let you know, when the three missing icons are done, but it can take some time, since I'm not that good in Gimp.
Sorry for the dumb question, but I have following problem:

[photon@photon-desktop gmusicbrowser]$ git remote add origin [email protected]:shimmerproject/gmusicbrowser.git
fatal: remote origin already exists.
[photon@photon-desktop gmusicbrowser]$ git push origin master
fatal: remote error:
  You can't push to git://
  Use [email protected]:shimmerproject/gmusicbrowser.git

Shall I use some other name rather than "origin" or is there anything else I do wrong?
QuoteI didn't add the half-valued stars because I was lazy mostly :)

I see.  :D I'm not using the rating stuff at all, so I have no feeling about the half stars being useful, but I can well imagine that one doesn't really use such an accurate rating.

I will then try to patch together dark versions of those three icons.

I have a github account, but I only used it for reporting and commenting some bugs so far, so I'm not in the picture yet concerning using git/github. Here's my account: .
Hi, thanks for the reply. Nice that Faenza finally gets included!

I pulled the updated version and I find the changes quite good. One question: Why are the star icons missing the half-valued numbers?

I'm trying to get the dark version more consistent. Following icons are currently missing in the dark version: gmb-filter, gmb-library and gmb-random. Did you create them on your own or it's just me being unable to find them?

I didn't use symlinks to Faenza in the dark variant, since I wasn't sure about the inclusion of Faenza into the package and wanted to be able to make two independent Arch packages for both variants, in the case that it cannot be included. Now since it will be included, I will use symlinks to Faenza in the dark version if some icons are identical in both variants.

Hello guys,

has any progress been made on this? I had some free time and have created a Faenza Dark theme based on the Faenza theme  from shimmerproject and also edited the Faenza theme a bit by adding the rating star icons and other small changes. You can have a look here: and find the theme here: I'd be glad if it can be included into gmusicbrowser or shimmerproject. In the latter case I would create a PKGBUILD for the Faenza theme finally. :) Btw, if anything needs to be changed, please tell me so.

I think, adding Faenza to the main package is the better solution, a package with just one additional icon theme and some additional layouts is somewhat mixed up. If too many new icon themes appear to include all of them into the main package, one can still move all of them to an extra icon theme package.
Is there anything new on this? I'd like to make an Arch Linux PKGBUILD for additional GMB icon themes but currently only the Faenza theme is not included into the main GMB package. I'd suggest either including it into the main tree or separating all the themes into an individual package, the current state is somewhat unsystematic. :)
Thanks, currently I'm just closing it properly but would be nice if it would just work. :)

I observed following behaviour: Sometimes you shut down the computer without quitting GMB properly. In this case the tracks imported in this session are gone from the library and have to be imported again at the next start.

Thanks, works perfectly!
Maximumize seems to interprete the little titlebar controller windows as, well, as windows. :) This results in non-working Maximumize. Maximumize has an option to ignore sticky and already overlapping windows during the calculations. Unfortunately ignoring the titlebar windows of GMB seems not to work. Maybe there is a possibility to declare them as sticky?

Thanks, works great with the newest git version. Hope, it won't make too much problems on Xfce or KDE.  :)

Concerning the tray icon: Is there any chance that this bug get fixed for gmb: ?
