Which theme engine should I install to use this great GTK theme? :d

To enjoying this theme the Pixbuf Engine is requested; you should take a look into package manager's applications for this ;)

Where do I copy this to so Gnome finds it?

Just unpack and copy the folder into
/home/yourusername/.themes
(this is a hidden folder into your home directory);
To have the root applications themed too, you must unpack and move the folder into
/usr/share/themes , do this with administrative rights as sudoer or as root :-)

can you add aqua buttons to your theme...You can just copy them from some other theme!

summary:
1) more compact menus, and windows
2) Aqua buttons / nautilus pull-down
3) translucent gnome bar


that would make this theme great!

Look forward to an improved theme!

Thank you very much for your time spent for nice comments :) I'll make another version with aqua-buttons, but I don't like how gtk manage rounded buttons; this will be for people who like aqua buttons especially :)

Thank you ;) yes, to have the title bar buttons on the left side you should open
gconf-editor, navigate to "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" and read long description before modify something. good luck :) (the string have to be:
close,minimize,maximize:menu)

1) make it more compact

more importantly,

2) Work with 'infra_red_dude' in making the ultimate Mac4lin theme! Given your work with this theme, you could make Mac4lin Great!

I don't think anyone helps the guy who develops Mac4Lin. I am sure your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again, dude :) I'll see what I can do about make it more compact; I don't know the guy who made mac4lin project... maybe I'll drop him some lines about cooperative work, it will be The Ultimate Mac4Lin Project ;)

hey Krig,


Good job with this theme! It looks elegant.

Two things I like in particular (more than Mac4lin) is:
1) light whitish grey as the 2nd color, instead of just another "grey"
2) pulldown cyan color is wonderful.

some improvements I would like:
1) semi-transperant gnome-bar.

I am sure you can make this even better. Keep it up! You can be sure I will be checking this theme now and again for updates!

Hi, finally I can see your work!! I was waiting for this since you've uploaded iRoll metacity theme. So, there're things I really like and things that I don't like so much.

+1
tabs, combo, radio and check are great. Progression bar is more then good, and buttons too!!

-1
The gray background for the menus...it's not a great color. I suggest you an "iced" white. People every time made the same error and use this kind of gray for "mac themes".

So and so...
Personally, I don't like the pixmap for the toolbar, but this is only an opinion, the pixmap is original and nice. One more thing, there's a strange issue with the panel...every thing is gray, no matter if I use a color or an image for the background.

Anyway, is a good job, +1 for you! If you need help, call me!

Hey, Maurizio this is a great feedback :)
updated with a iced color for menu background, and maybe looks better...menu has more attention with new color;the toolbar bg_pixmap can be easily edited with Gimp though; about the panel bg displaying I say that mine is the same as the color choosed for, is the image panel-bg.png... just check in gnome-appearance-properties dialog, under Theme\Customize\Colors the button Reset to Defaults; also in panel properties dialog check if active Background\None Thanks for comments, GBY

You mean the toolbar background? if so, this is a pixmap; see line n° 1558 in gtkrc source file; glad you like my work :)
