Description:

This theme was inspired by a theme I saw on the website wincustomize.com that a friend had suggested I take a look at. Since I exclusively use Linux on all my boxes I created this theme to suit my tastes.

I think the icon theme OSX goes well with this theme, if you don't have it installed it will use a default icon theme “Mist”.

I am still tweaking this one, so I would appreciate any feedback that anyone has.
Last changelog:

Added color to the window border rollovers, such as restore, minimize, maximize and close. They now "light up" orange, green and red.

Enjoy!

Fixed Open Office toolbar color issue and Evolution shading. Thanks for the input everyone, enjoy!

Fixed background color issue in evolution, thanks for all the input!

Hi,

Just noticed when using Evolution Preferences that the dialog is almost impossible to read for some reason. I've uploaded a screenshot for you to illustrate the issue.

While I'm at it, some more questions ;-)

I was wondering if you were planning to theme Avant Window Navigator (AWN) as well. Would be nice to have something matching the gnome theme.

Something else I noticed on AWN: the notification area is still under development and resembles the one in an ordinary panel. For some reason the battery notification has the theme background and the others not, strange. See for your self at:

Last question: any plans to have different colors? (red would also be nice I guess)

I'll stop bugging you (for now that is ;-) )

Kind Regards,

Hi,

Nice work on your theme. I just have some strange artifacts with my Eclipse IDE. Not sure if it's related to your theme though but you might want to take a look. (www.eclipse.org) Toolbars show up kinda strange in two shades of grey.

If it's Eclipse not following the theme, I might poke them instead ;-)

Regards

Just noticed the same thing with Evolution: different shades of grey.

Eg inbox heading is dark, surrounding is light. This does seem a bit odd to me, it's not meant to be that way, is it?

Another small remark: the window title border seems to be just a tad too big. I would prefer them a bit narrower (in contrast, my gnome panel is just about the right height), can I adjust these myself?

Regards.

I repaired the shading issues I believe you brought to my attention. If this isn't it please let me know.

Thank you for the input!

I tried your new version, which does seem a little different. But to be clear about what I mean, I've uploaded some pics to show you what I'm talking about. Might be that I'm completely off, but anyways look at the dark gray boxes surrounded with a lighter gray. The eclipse screenshot shows this best (a lot of dark boxes surrounded by light edges).

I would really love a panel-bg.png file with transparency,... :shy:

And about the "Minimize Window", "Maximize Window" and the "Close Window" buttons, how about adding color to them, like Orange, Green and Red (in respectiv order).

If that could fit your taste too, I would really use the theme long therm. Anyway,

I found by downloading the compiz configuration settings manager through synaptic and changing the opacity through there was the best way to get transparency effects.

You can change them from there this way:

System>Preferences>Advanced Desktop Effects Settings
General Options then Opacity Settings tab
click add and in the new window that opens type one of the following:

dock (make opacity 85, 90 or whatever you like)
This makes the whole panel transparent, icons included, so don't make it TOO transparent.
dropdownmenu = Menus
popupmenu = Right Click Menus/Single Start Menu
tooltip = Tool Tip Popups

This way offers you control over any theme you like :)
