24.1.2012
Added compatibility for cinnamon1.2
There are 3 folders in the zip file, one gnome-shell, 2 for cinnamon. default install will be suitable for cinnamon 1.2. for those using cinnamon 1.1.3, kindly open the theme folder in nautilus, rename folder cinnamon to cinnamon-1.2, rename cinnamon-1.1.3 to cinnamon, restart cinnamon.

9.1.2012
1. Edited the selector background in Mint Menu (MGSE) to match with the pop-up menu selector (in gnome-shell)
2. Edited the work-space switcher on MGSE bottom panel in sync with the theme. (in gnome-shell)

8.1.2012
Minor text-shadow issue that i was unable to solve (the last letter in the popup text was not showing the text-shadow - though it was not noticeable), i modified it a bit to make it look better.


7.1.2012
Added support for cinnamon desktop. For those who are yet to experience cinnamon, follow this link =>
http://www.webupd8.org/2012/01/cinnamon-13-released-with-panel.html

now the default "infinity" logo for overview button in cinnamon is visible. you can disable the visibility if you do not wish to see that using dconf-editor > org > cinnamon configuration. Even bottom panel can be set to auto-hide.

Thank You once again for visiting this page for a preview / download. As always, suggestions / comments are welcome for my improvement.

this particular theme is based on images and not color gradients. (wood n tux was my first venture into image based shell theme where i wished to have a wooden look panel and popup menus, dash and all..
then followed brushed metallica with metalic textures and then this trans blues...)
you can dig into the gnome-shell.css file and the images in the folder.

for purely color based transparency, here is one
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/aero+theme+pack?content=146698 that contains 3 themes....
in this you can dig into the css file and search for Panel section ! you ll get it.

you said it right... with compiz not available for shell this is one way i explored ! in a nut shell, i am a noob in theme creations, i just explore ! and enjoy !

thank you for your support and encouraging comments champ... have a nice day...
