Description:

Yet another hope is a modification of A new hope theme by jurialmunkey.

Whats different?
8 themes with different colors (one original, 7 based on tango color palette)
completely removed roundness
little changes in metacity
removed breadcumbs and added something similar for those who don't use nautilus-elementary (including me :))
changes in elements sizes
recoded to use it with older murrine engine
and more in code


Since it's a first release it might be bugged somewhere.
Let me know about some bugs or ideas, everything would be helpful.

If you must vote down leave a comment so I can improve it!

Don't forget to thank jurialmunkey for his great theme which gave me an inspiration :)

I don't usually post comments but I'm posting this one simply because your theme is excellent and highly usable in both professional and casual environments. The original "A New Hope", while excellent itself, is not very usable with standard Nautilus. You do not seem to have received much positive feedback or encouragement on this theme and therefore this comment. I've also modified the theme slightly to enable steppers and colourisation on scrollbars and to colourise the trough on sliders, but I've not published my modified version. Thanks for the great work!

Can I suggest straightening the curve in the metacity titlebar. If you're going to remove the curves, you should go all the way. Choose some minimal squared window buttons too.

Re the theme: I think choice is important. Squared themes are not particularly my taste (I only really like super minimal squared themes), but having that choice is important. So, good job so far.

Also, if you like square themes, perhaps my Insignificant theme will interest you: http://jurialmunkey.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d30nesc

Sorry mate, but i had to vote down.

1: I just can't imagine anything needing to be done to jurialmunkeys New Hope theme.
I feel it as absolutely perfect as it is.

2: I really don't see any improvement whatsoever..
it just looks like a downgrade.
Not even 1 thing I can see has been 'improved'.
Only changed, and not for the better.

Please don't think im being mean or trying to be a dickhead,
im really not..
just being honest,
from one brother to another..

I honestly just cannot see anything that makes the original theme better..
and I think that is what re-doing, or editing a theme is all about..
Improvement.
But I see no improvement.

Normally on a "vote down", I wouldnt even bother with a comment, but you asked kindly, so I must oblige.

Peace n Blessings

Thanks for reply.
Thats the way how it goes with themes, we all have different taste and some like original style but some not. For example roundness is really annoying for me, it's one of the changes, and so on.

Anyway you shouldn't blame even little improvements, you don't have to like them, but some may do. Everyone can choose what he likes :)

And of course it's first release, i have alot in my mind to do, but it takes time :)

So maybe in future you will change mind, or not, but honestly your post is a way better than voting down and saying ugly without any reasons.
Cheers :)
