Description:

I promised someone I would create themes with a transparent panel to match the Swar Themes for Ubuntu 11.10 so here they are...

This is a collection of themes I designed for Ubuntu 12.04 and Gnome 3.4. I have only tested these themes in Ubuntu 12.04 Unity but I am sure they will work with most Gnome 3.4 based Operating Systems.

These themes are a merge of my Swar Blue + Swar-Black-Base-Orange + Originalseeds DarkCold4.

Originalseed, the author of the theme DarkCold4, deserves the credit for their work that has enabled me to create this (and soon to be many more) new theme(s) and many thanks to Originalseed.
To download the DarkCold4 theme please go to http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=143165

These themes are based on the Gnome 2 theme Slickness-Black which is the best Operating System theme I have ever had. I do not want to see such digital artwork lost with the progression of improvement so I have been learning how to import, alter and develop themes.

The desktop images I use can be found from Digital Blasphemy by Ryan at: http://www.digitalblasphemy.com/

It has worked for me and it is my third attempt at theme development so please be kind. If there are bugs then help me to become more skilled so I can create better themes or use my themes to create even better themes.

Should you download this file you will be downloading the following themes version 1.5 with a transparent top panel with a shadow which is what I had in the Sway Themes for Ubuntu 11.10.
Thus the naming structure...
-I = Invisible-panel

*** themes in this package ***
- Sway-I Black-Base GREEN Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base GREY Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base LIGHT BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base ORANGE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base PINK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base PURPLE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base RED Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base RED DARK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base ROYAL BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base YELLOW Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I GREEN Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I LIGHT BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I ORANGE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I PINK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I PURPLE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I RED Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I RED DARK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I ROYAL BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I YELLOW Invisible-Panel

These themes are almost a fork of the Sway Themes Version 1.3 so I will not erase the 1.3 All-In-One Download but in time I will update the individual theme downloads to version 1.5.

I hope you enjoy the Sway Themes as much as I do...

To access the themes directory like the home folder
1. Run Terminal (press and hold Ctrl + Alt + T)
2. In Terminal type
whoami (remember this name as we will now use swar)
3. Switch to super user by typing
sudo su -
4. type your password into terminal
You are now ROOT User or Super User!
5. To change the permissions of the theme folder type
sudo chown -R swar:swar /usr/share/themes
6. Remember swar should be your whoami result / account
ie: if you are becky then it should be...
sudo chown -R becky:becky /usr/share/themes
7. You need to leave ROOT User or Super User so type
8. exit
9. then to leave terminal completely type
10. exit
11. Now you can click on home folder and go to
File System
12. Double Click on the directory
usr
13. Double Click on the directory
share
14. find and double click on the directory
themes (hint = just type the directory name and then press the escape key when you are in the directory after double clicking on it to exit the find directory /file function)
15. Now you can paste in copied themes as though it was your home folder or desktop
Hope this helps ;-)
