Photoshop like interface(Shortcuts & Icons) of GIMP on Ubuntu/Linux

I was a windows user and recently transfer to Linux (Ubuntu). I try GIMP on Ubuntu as an alternative of Photoshop, but facing some issues, bcoz the interface is not exactly like Photoshop and I need a quick solution. So, I google and find a GIMP Photoshop Tweaks and here it is..

and Here is the process how can you change your GIMP  default interface like Photoshop

0. Close GIMP, if it is open.
1. Download the Tweak File from Here
2. Keep a backup of your present GIMP configuration.
– just type below command on your terminal

mv ~/.gimp-2.8 ~/.gimp-2.8.backup

OR
– Go to the Home folder and press Ctrl+H (to view hidden files & folders).
– Find the folder named .gimp-2.8
– Rename .gimp-2.8 to .gimp-2.8.backup or wahtever you want

3. Extract the downloaded zip file in your Home folder. You will get a hidden folder named .gimp-2.8 with new configuration like Photoshop. (Press Ctrl+H to see the hidden folders/files.)
4. Now Open the GIMP and check out the toolbox, right side panel and interface..
5. If you are done and everything ok, then do a comment here and share this article, bcoz sharing is caring :p

 

N.B.: And if you don’t like/need Photoshop Like interface and want to roll back to the default GIMP Interface just type below command on your terminal

rm -r ~/.gimp-2.8

mv ~/.gimp-2.8.backup ~/.gimp-2.8

 

Thanks 🙂

Update (custom) XAMPP/WAMP/LAMP default landing page layout

We are building website and applications on localhost and I use XAMPP package on Linux for my local development.
Screenshot from 2015-10-07 20:20:51

 

After installing Xampp, we always get a default home page from Xampp and most of the time we don’t need that. Basically before writing this article I always delete all items of htdocs/www folder, but sometimes we need to know things like versions and if functions are enable or not and also the limits various variables. So by using the below script you can easily get a good view of your localhost’s projects (as a list) and as well as databases from phpmyadmin. And you dont need to delete anything on htdocs folder and get all thing whenever you need.

 

In the header put this css code into the style tag for a better view

 

body {

background: #fcfcfc;

color: #111;

font-family: verdana, sans-serif;

padding: 0;

margin: 0;

}

#main {

width: 100%;

position: relative;

}

.container {

padding: 1em;

}

#menu { float: left; width: 24%;  }

#menu ul { padding: 0; border-right: 3px solid white; margin: 0; }

ul li { list-style-type: none; }

ul li a {

display: block;

background: #eee;

padding: 4px 7px;

border-top: 2px solid #fff;

}

ul li a:hover {

background: #B6C6D7;

color: black;

}

iframe {

border: 0 none;

overflow: hidden;

width: 74%;

height: 95%;

padding-left: 1%;

}

.clear-block {

width: 100%;

height: 1px;

clear: both;

}

Add this css file for a look like phpmyadmin

<link rel=”stylesheet” type=”text/css” href=”phpmyadmin/phpmyadmin.css.php”></script>

 

Put this code into the body

</div>

</div>

Now you are done 🙂 . And save this file as index.php at htdocs

Or download from here

If there is issue of viewing your phpmyadmin, here is the solution. You just need to add an extra line to allow the third party framing on your phpmyadmin/config.inc.php file.

$cfg[‘AllowThirdPartyFraming’] = true;
