Metacity Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net


This is a just a slightly reworked version of the RlubberDubber metacity theme. It has smoother gradients and the titlebar of the maximized windows has the same thickness as the non-maximized ones. Some tweaks were made to the edges also.

The previous version of the theme (with the thinner titlebar) can be found here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/RlubberDubber?content=144672

Feel free to change or improve the themes at your will.

To install:
1st. Download and unzip the contents of the .zip file to the /usr/share/themes/ folder (you will need super user priviledges for this);
2nd. use the Gnome Tweak Tool (Gnome3) to select the Windows - Current Theme (choose RlubberDubber2); or use the Appearance Settings of Gnome2 to choose the window borders.
Notice that gnome-shell will need to be restarted for the new window borders to appear.
For that, press Alt+F2, write r and hit enter.

Assuming you have wget and unzip on your system, you may also try the following commands to install the theme:
wget www.deviantart.com/download/321077403/rlubberdubber2_metacity_by_kant_o-d5b5swr.zip
unzip RlubberDubber2.zip
sudo cp -r RlubberDubber2/ /usr/share/themes/
rm -r RlubberDubber2/
rm RlubberDubber2.zip

For gnome3, do the following additional steps:
1st. open gnome-tweak-tool (select RlubberDubber2 in the Themes - Window Theme option)
Press Alt+F2, write r, and hit enter.

For gnome2, go to the appearance settings and change the window borders of the current theme. No need to restart anything.
