Description:

My 2nd Shell theme created with visualization of textures (1st one is wood n tux).

The theme was inspired by the wonderful metal mega pack wall created by illnanny which you can find it here =>
http://ilnanny.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=wallpaper+pack#/d3498gz

Requirements:
a) Gnome3.2
b) MGSE (optional)

INSTALL:
Extract the zip folder to ~/.themes and choose using gnome-tweak-tool

SUGGESTIONS:
a) GTK3 theme : Slave by half-left => http://half-left.deviantart.com/art/SLAVE-GTK3-256366787

b) ICONS: Faience Dark by tgraec84 => http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Faience+Dark?content=147321

c) Wallpaper by ilnanny (link shown above)

d) I have used font scaling factor of 0.9 you can choose lesser value for smaller font or 1.0 for a larger font.

Choose a combination to suit your taste...

As always, suggestions / comments are welcome to help me improve myself.

hope you enjoy my shell theme... with a difference !

as an add-on if you like your chromium / firefox to sport this brushed metal effect, you can install respective extensions from the web...
it looks matching with the shell theme...
till a matching gtk3 / metacity comes in this goes well ! IMO

go to date and time settings (click on the calendar and bottom left item) choose 24 hour format instead of am/pm.

Well, it is an excellent idea, but there are a few bugs on my end. The screenshot should show everything.

i get your point. you are using a dark wall and i had this theme made to match the wallpaper in preview. i cannot change the font color to lighter one as it will affect the search mode view...and i didnt want to choose any other color other than white / black and shades of gray in this theme.
well here is an alternative.
download the image from here =>
1) http://dl.dropbox.com/u/38232687/Screenshots/overview1-bg.svg
2) Copy / move this image to the images folder in the theme (~/.themes)
3) rename it with overview-bg.svg (you will have to back up the existing image or move that out of that folder)
Restart shell.
Your problem will be solved
kindly give me feed back if you got that. thank you for downloading !

Ok, now you've done it. Not only did you make a interesting wood theme, now you had to go and make a metal one. And I was just thinking of how nice that would be. I am going to try this one. If the wood one is any indicator, I will like it.
