Creative Commons license viewer 0.2

Filed under: GNOME, Python — acidborg @ 02:15

I finally release the next version of my epiphany extension. Things fixed:

  • Installation bug fixed: No separate image file is needed!
  • Internationalization support

Looking for a solution to the image installation problem, I tried to check for its path and it worked. But then, I found a better solution looking at other extension: inline images. I think this idea is great! You just have to use gdk-pixbuf-csource –raw image.gif on the shell to generate the inline image, add it to a variable inside your code and call gtk.gdk.pixbuf_new_from_inline(data_length, data, copy_pixels) to load it.

Installation instructions:

      Download it.
      Write tar xvfz cc-license-viewer.tar.gz on the shell to extract it.
      Copy the extracted files to .gnome2/epiphany/extensions in your home directory.
      Open epiphany and load the extension using the Tools->Extensions menu.
      A “CC” icon will appear in the statusbar everytime you visit a website under a Creative Commons license.

I have mailed the Creative Commons staff to tell them about my extension and to ask if they can add it to their browser plugins site 😀 .

I’m planning to code a new extension, but this time for Deskbar-applet. News coming soon…


  1. Congratulations

    It seems that the extension has been added here:

  3. problems with the package that wiki.CC links to

    The package that wiki.creativecommons.org links to has an error with the .ephy-extension file. It looks like its the make file for it and not the actual file. You may want to fix that.

      • 😦 I’m happy to report that the assertion bug has been fixed in Ogre 1. 4. 2. 🙂 I haven’t tried it personally though, since it has always worked for me.

  4. Good picture at end

    jaja, in your faculty you can hear about hacker culture, but in ours only can it if come hear somebody who were in this “movida” like Ian Murdock (who uses ubuntu (and not debian), jajajaj) or another people in “ateneo del CPS“.

  12. 2.6.24 patch

    Thanks Jaime,

    The patch worked on Slack-ware 12.1 with no problems.
    I thought that maybe I would be buying a new cam,
    but this gives the old one new life.

    A good How-to.
