Description:

NEW UPDATES ARE ADDED AT THE BOTTOM! -NO LONGER CRASHES ON SEARCH, fixed!!, and a few other pieces tidied up. running like gravy in gnome 3.2! (updates at the bottom)

- added a 3rd screen shot as a demonstration of changing the overview background! (screen shot 1 is the default overview background in the theme, so if your not a fan of the purplish blue gradient...you can get creative!)

This is my new theme, its elementary shell theme inspired.

has a few cool features you might like.

-the ability to change the background of the overview to whatever you like (been wanting that for a while...)

-slimmer panels (top)

- matching bottom panel

- and various tweaks, mods, new bits and what not that you can pick up on, some from my last theme sleek shells.


To install simply extract the file to your .themes folder in your home folder and set using gnome tweak tool.

To change the overview background simply open "True Elements" folder in your .themes folder. There is a file called overview background.jpeg, replace that with whatever you want as long as its called "overview background.jpeg".

Tell me how it goes for you!! feedback and criticism are all welcome.

cheers! the crashings an old problem that I fixed, was a problem with using a 3.0 compatible shell theme in 3.2. The themes you based off this will be fine I fixed that a couple of hours after I first put the theme up, should prob take it off the update list as its been a couple of months haha

Hello,
this is really a very good one, light and fast and very nice looking.
What keep my attention is your sentence "no more crashes on search", as it happen to me with few themes!
To say the truth, I was sure it was a gnome-shell fail, but maybe it depends by the theme I use and infact it not happen with your theme!!!
Just to inform all the fricking gnome-shell comunity, how and what exactly did you do to fix the problem? There are undreds tickets still open on launchpad and a lot of various forums posts with the crash-search problem.
Thanks again.

The problem is in the CSS file. the section "overview" and "apps" seem to have to be quite specific, I don't know exactly the issue but I noticed that the crashing themes had larger fonts and buttons ect, basically I just made everything a bit smaller in this section (fonts ect) and woah! it worked. If in doubt and the themes assing up too much just just copy and paste these sections off mine or another working theme and work backwards. Thats basically what I had to do, tweak-restart shell, tweak-restart shell all the way through the file. it is monotonousness. But the problems in those sections and seems to be to do with sizing or something similar. So although I'd like enlighten people but this is only my second gnome shell theme I've got a lot to learn. Hope this helps someone!!
