hi dear,

what I would like, would be a completely transparent gtk3-theme which looks like glassy.

This means: transparent border, these window-buttons and transparent gtk.

Could this work out??

hi bluedxca93,

first let me say: this Theme looks like a very wellknown System... :-D The look is from Windows8.

But question: where did you get the icons from?? Can you post a link to these icons??

And yes, the Cinnamon-hack would really interest me, because I think, this is no real hack. This is
just one of the menues out of the Cinnamon-Applets, right??

But: tell us about your hack.

Hi,
used applets:
window-list: http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/16
windows 7 style-menu -2.0 : http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/78 OR
Stark Menu 2.0.14- : fetch it from github

Cinnamon 2.0 - 2.0.14 maybe unsopported, no idea what ..

Firefox use theme Office 2010 Aero -/ works well on newer gtk2/ (persona/theme/css) ?? firefox versions and even on firefox FIREFOX 29.0 gtk3 nightly.

Icons are posted on:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/icons
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install win-icons

Took me some time to update the whole icon pack to gtk3 compatibility. You might be interested to "add" the places folder if you run much KDE PROGRAMS. Simply merge the filesystem and devices folder into it and change the theme settings file a bit. Are yoiu able to send me some scrrenshot of the well "unknown OS". Some icons have changed from 7 to 8 or am i wrong ?


Hack for 2.0.14 (to make it look as in my screenshot ( "fix" "Start/Stark"Menu deplacement )
on earlier versions like 1.7.4 there was also something to do with the bottom left edge part of the js. Have this patch safed on my harddisk to.


/usr/share/cinnamon/js/ui/boxpointer.js

// Now align and position the pointing axis, making sure
// it fits on screen
switch (this._arrowSide) {
case St.Side.TOP:
case St.Side.BOTTOM:
resX = sourceCenterX - (halfMargin + (natWidth - margin) * alignment);

resX = Math.max(resX, monitor.x + 1);
resX = Math.min(resX, monitor.x + monitor.width - (1 + natWidth));
this.setArrowOrigin(sourceCenterX - resX);
break;

case St.Side.LEFT:
case St.Side.RIGHT:
resY = sourceCenterY - (halfMargin + (natHeight - margin) * alignment);

resY = Math.max(resY, monitor.y + 1);
resY = Math.min(resY, monitor.y + monitor.height - (1 + natHeight));

this.setArrowOrigin(sourceCenterY - resY);
break;
}

hi dear,

I have Cinnaon 2.0 running and I have to say: the first part of your instruction does not work. The
installation of this menue causes Cinnamon-Crash.

I installed it from the settings-menue. In the applets-section, there is this menue.


But I will install your icons, because you also have the elementary-icons in your pack, which I like.

Then I have all these Windows-Wallpapers already here on storage.

Hi,this isn`t an fault of the apllet but of cinnamon version. I 'd to try 2 repositories before one worked well. But it does work. Are you on github ?? Then you could ask the devellopper of this applet which version to install !. Did the window-list applet and the patch/hack work ??Post plese your cinnamon version number. Cinnamon 2.0.9 didn't work and 2.0.14 did. i used an daily/"unstable" ppa.sry for my bad english I'm german and my prefered second language is french.regards bluedxca93.

Try out this!

And now I will install several of these Icons...

hi dear,

installed your ppa-repository! Thanks a ton!

Now I just look out for such an aery gtk3-theme, for let it look more like Windows. :-D

But I also installed your elementary-icons and your Win-icons. I am really looking forward, how
they will look like. I personnaly preferr the original look of Windows-icons.

But I also like the elementary-icons, because I like some parts out of elementryOS. There I also
have the wallpapers here on storage. :-)

And one tipp for you, if you want to let your screen look like Windows7:

just use your win-icons, together with this Stark-menue and use the Cloud-Cinnamon-theme
and add a original Windows7-Wallpaper!

The only thing you need, is such an aery gtk3- theme, that looks like Windows7. I would wish,
you did such a theme.

Cheers,

Hi,Have done an basic aero theme: http://www.noobslab.com/2013/11/just-moved-from-windows-linux-can-wear.html . Earlier versions are posted as ambiance w7 google for it. Has cinnamon theme too.It does contain 2 litlle css errors, but do't worry i will fix it soon and they are only optical. The really unkown system doesn't really have an aero style, but of course you could install win7/Ambiancew7 without problems. But that wasn`t the goal of this theme. Sometimes the style of an operating system may decrease a litlle with the following system.The german langue with others as well will perhaps be supported in future. I will search for an solution. One way would be to patch the applet, another to patch the cinnamon .po/mo langue files wich is more unstable.regards bluedxca93

hi dear,

thanks for you message!! This is nice as Cinnamon does no longer support Berryl-Emerald.
In early Ubuntu-versions, I had used Emerald-Themes to imitate this W7-Windowborder.

But I am happy, that you did this theme for us. What about the idea, to make one with a
glassy border and these buttons??

Thanks a ton for your work!! :-)

hi,
transparent borders could be working. Or do you want blur effects. Explain what you mean, please.
