Description:

-Resized and styled menus
-Restyled tick/checkboxes
-Restyled Scrollbars
-Restyled tabs
-A new default icon theme

Please feel free to share your thoughts and let me know what you think of the theme.

It is called conky, its a really great program that you can customise to show your pretty much whatever you want. Once you have installed it if you want to replicate the one i have (or use it as a base and modify it to your needs) you can find my .conkyrc files here on gnome-look (just check my other artwork). If you have any further questions about it just let me know,

Best of luck,

James

@james, great theme I'm using it in Linux Mint, the set-up instructions for CONKY are perfect although obtaining the licence key for the weather panel was long-winded. I have a few questions ... first is where can I find the Charcoal Wallpaper in your screenshot, and second, how can I get those 3 CONKY scripts to auto-load (one after the other) on start up, thanks for all your hard work, it's much appreciated.

Unfortunately even i am having problems getting them all to load automatically consistently without one of them being obscured by one of the others (usually the clock) however you can find some instructions on how it is supposed to work here...

Regarding the wallpaper i had a look around where i thought i got it from however unfortunately i was unable to locate it. If you would like i could send you an email with it attached?

Thanks for the comment im glad you like it, Best Wishes,

James

In which case i'll include both and include instructions on how to switch. If i receive any more comments of this nature ill probably just switch it back lol. Thanks for your feedback, greatly appreciated =)

This theme would look awesome using the LuzSans font.

Thanks for the suggestion, do you know where i can find it as it doesn't appear to be a default font?

I got it from here: http://hpmini.archive.canonical.com/mie/dists/hardy-hpmini/universe/binary-lpia/luzsans-ttf_1_all.deb

It's a .deb file that installs all the different variants of the font.

Oh btw im a massive fan of your Macchiato theme! The best brown based theme on here in my opinion, looks amazing with the smoke panel =)
