How do I install this theme? I tried clicking on the "Install" button, then opened the folder, but it was empty. Maybe it's the version I was using? I'm using 2.9.

I tried installing using the Themes Package Manager under Appearance Preferences and it told me that "Windows7" does not appear to be a valid theme. So how do I go about installing this theme or any similar theme?

Here's my try at constructive criticism + a review.

Overall the looks are perfect and it's easy to navigate the apps I use. It feels good to use your skin, it's very professional and gives my desktop edge.

I'd be happier to rename the Home Folder just "Home" or my username "Cloaky8x"

I personally am editing the themedata.xml trying to edit out the buttons:
- History
- Search
- Help

Also, It would be a nice polishing effect to have "title" tags on hover over Shutdown, Lock, & Additional Settings buttons.

The last thing that's strange and I'd mod out if I knew how is-

The button height expands when there are less options to click on instead of simply placing the buttons at the top of the list - it feels strange ans inconsistent.


Thanks for the plugin :)

On a side note it seems for me the icon where the User-Icon flickers when I hover over other buttons... I wonder if this is something others are experiencing also.

Any reason why the "Shut Down" and lock icon are upside down if you put the GnoMenu on the top panel? It works fine if you have the GnoMenu in the bottom panel, though.

Here's how it looks for me (Gnomenu 2.1) http://i45.tinypic.com/e5ofig.png

When attempting to extract the startbutton and the icons for your theme, I get the following error:
Quote:tar xf Desktop/"Windows7 icons for startmenu.tar.gz" -C Desktop/Test
tar: Desktop/Windows7 icons for startmenu.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
This is because you (or the site you're hosting them on) puts quotes around the file names. I just thought that you should know. It's an easy fix, but its annoying.

This is a Theme Site for the GNOME Desktop!!
Create a good Theme for Gnome and Copying not the Windows Theme
Use Windows whe you Love this!
I can not understand!
Sorry for my English.

Und nun nochmal auf Deutsch .... kann ja jemand übersetzen, wenn das Englische zu schlecht ist.

Das ist eine Theme Seite für den GNOME Desktop!!
Erstelle lieber ein gutes Theme für Gnome statts das Theme von Windows zu kopieren.
Nutze doch lieber Windows, wenn es dir so gut gefällt.
Ich kann da nicht verstehen, das es hier so viele gibt die froh unter munter die Themes von Windows Nachahmen.
Ich finde das einfach nur peinlich!

Why should one need to use all of Windows, when one can use only the good things, such as the artwork?

Such a silly comment. Begone.

Sweet Lord, not again.

There is nothing, repeat, NOTHING wrong with mimicing a beautiful interface, regardless of OS choice. Windows 7 has a nice interface. So does Mac OS X. So does Vista. So people bring these interfaces to the Linux desktop. Beautiful interfaces but with awesome Linux under the hood. Sounds good to me.

Instead, we get people whining "BAWWWWW GNOME IS NOT WINDOWS BAWWWW!"

Seriously, it's getting old.

P.S. Excellent menu theme.

If you want to make your desktop look like windows, nobody cares.
You can create your windows like theme and use it. Personally, I dont like the vista style by the way, but who cares.
So create your theme and use it, nobody will say anything.
But ripping(!) the image files from a windows .DLL and then sell the content as yours, this is just contumelious.

He's not selling it, right? And I think you missed the part where he said he's even going to password-lock the download site and just distribute to "friends" maybe? Anyway, this is one of the main reasons why a LOT of talented themers shy away from this site; because of flamers that do nothing but, well, flame others....

It's actually like this....

I am just 16 and took hard time to make this. So I want to make it the best theme ever in the history of mimicking windows. As soon as the work is over I will release on my site with a password which will be distributed to a no. of people only. It is because everything has been taken from Windows 7 Dlls. If you could wait for a week or so you will get theme and the procedure also
