Dear Design Team,
I've been a user of Fedora 15 for two weeks now and I'm impressed. However I was
very much missing any Fedora branding from Gnome shell.
So I decided to look into creating Gnome shell extensions and I created a small extension
that adds a Fedora logo to the Activities button.
The advantage of this extension is that it will work together with any theme, always
displaying the glorious Fedora logo. :)
I also packaged it. I will submit the package for review tomorrow, but until then the
source and the rpm can be found here: http://sources.venemo.net/
In order to use it, you will need to:
1. Get the RPM:
- Install the fedora-logo-gnome-shell-extension-1.0.0-1.fc15.noarch.rpm package
OR if you don't want to install a random rpm from a random guy on the internet, the
source tarball is also there:
- Get the tarball, and extract the contents to
2. Reload the shell: press Alt+F2, type r and press enter
I would appreciate any feedback about this idea. Eg. does the icon fit well in there, is
this the right icon to use, etc.
Thanks in advance! :)
