If you change the appareance of your GNOME desktop, Debian provides two packages : gnome-themes and gnome-themes-extras
To install them :
root@localhost:~# apt-get install gnome-themes gnome-themes-extras
To choose one of the available themes :
fool@localhost:~$ /usr/bin/gnome-appearance-properties &
Here is what you should have :
To install other GNOME themes, please visit :
On this website, you can find plenty of wallpapers, icons, GTK2.x Themes/Styles. If you want to have a new full GNOME theme, just choose GTK2.x Themes/Styles :

There are several existing tools to check the ink level of your printer.
Let’s take two of them : ink and inkblot
Install them :
root@localhost:~# apt-get install ink inkblot
ink is a command-line tool whereas inkblot is an ink level monitor with a GUI.
Please verify that your printer is currently supported :
If your printer belongs to the list of the supported ones, you have to add read access to the device
which stands for your printer :
root@localhost~# chmod o+r /dev/usb/lp0
As a non-root user, to check the ink level :
fool@localhost:~$ ink -p usb
Here is the kind of result you could expect :
ink v0.5.0 (c) 2009 Markus Heinz
hp deskjet 5550
If you launch inkblot from your Gnome menu, then a icon will appear in your tray icon.
By left-clicking on it, you will get the status of your ink level within a pop-up.
More info : man ink
Nota Bene : make sure that your printer is correctly plugged and switched on.
Each time I launch a graphical application like gedit as a non-root user, I get this error :
(gedit:1376): Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: “ubuntulooks”
To solve this problem, please install the following Debian package :
root@localhost:~# apt-get install gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks
Try to relaunch your graphical application :
foo@localhost:~$ gedit &
You will not get the initial error message anymore.
