Description:

I made this for three computers we use at home getting ready for the natty narwhal release, I'll be making a natty narwhal theme also and will upload it once done.
Just thought I'd share this quick one I made for personal use with the natty narwhal folks.
Enjoy.

Added the meta city theme for this package, (taken from my oldmetalsam theme and changed the artwork abit to suite the natty theme. I left the pipes as it sort of looked like some old ship pipes. I am using a unity gtk for the rest of the theme, and I might also add a normal gtk NON unity also and package both separately, this is the first time I am making a theme in unity using a murrine unity base but I find it limited so to get what I want in it might take longer than I wanted it to grrr, so I'll probably have the non unity one out first. I want to see if I can get some transparencies in unity and see if I can add some other stuff in it also (time to play)
Hopefully I'll get to the icon theme also for this one.
I'll keep it update as it goes along and I add more.

I run a custom Ubuntu 12.04 with Metacity themes. No compiz installed. I would like to get this theme running on my box. Can it be done?

It seems natty narwhal does not respect gtks other then it's own or is extremely limited, I tried changing pixmaps, no go, tried changing the gtk no go, even deleted pixmaps and it always reverted back to default for the gtk, then I found out it is hard coded, which pretty much means were stuck with what they give us or maybe we can do minor changes to the gtk, unless we change the hard coded default, there is a bug report on this for ubuntu (I added my comment to give us back the choice to make our own panels and gtk).
So as it stands now we can create any meta city theme that works fine but forget about the gtk, we're either limited way to much or it reverts back to the default. This is a horrible move for theme creators.
Hopefully they will fix this sooner than later cause themeing right now is pretty much a waste of time for this.

Just an update, got to frustrated with the 11.04 unity from ubuntu, I'm switching and testing out mint and suse now instead, maybe fedora or debian to see which one will be better.
Once I decide I'll start themeing for that OS instead :)
I'll keep the natty is naughty up for those who want the wallpaper and metacity theme though.
