I am constantly installing Ubuntu and need this information, so I decided to post it here.
To change border widths, open up the theme’s Metacity XML file. For example, Ambiance’s theme is located in “/usr/share/themes/Ambiance/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml”. To figure out what theme you are running, use the following:
gconftool-2 -g /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme
Pulling it together:
theme=`gconftool-2 -g /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme`
sudo nano "/usr/share/themes/$theme/metacity-1/metacity-theme-1.xml"
Then stanza in question should be apparent:
<distance name="left_width" value="5"/>
<distance name="right_width" value="5"/>
<distance name="bottom_height" value="5"/>
It is possible to control BeyondPod from Tasker on Android by using the general Intent sending mechanism of Tasker. But it isn’t obvious how to do that, so I will describe here how to create a recipe to have BeyondPod do a feed update when you plug your phone into power.
I first create a State Profile, with Power source “Any”. Then I created a task “BeyondPod Update” and add a “Send Intent” with the following settings:
category: All Feeds
Then test out the new task. The key things left off of the BeyondPod FAQ on this that you set the extra to the word “category:” followed by the category name, and that “All Feeds” updates all categories.
