You're a design genius! However, we should also focus more on usability.

It's very heavy. It requires emerald so I suggest a metacity theme because emerald eats up additional RAM. I also suggest a version without the backgrounds. I find the Pidgin background very heavy too. I removed it because it's hardly usable. I hope, you can find ways to make it lighter. Something as light as shiki-colors would be nice. hehe

I found a bug, btw. Selected tabs aren't lit up so one wouldn't know if a tab is currently selected.

Also, I believe that the OpenSuSE 11 Gilouche is a better suited icon theme.

Great work! This is one of my favorites! :)

I also noticed that the gray color is too light so there is little contrast between it and the white text making GNOME Do hard to read.

Radio buttons are also cut. Please take a look at theme.

Still, very good job!

I am not sure but I think that problem it is the theme and not the engine, because it use a image for draw the background of the windows. This is large enough then for a centrino 1.8 may be too hard..
..sorry for my english..

I was staring to the preview pic, and I noticed the shadow have something wrong: it seems tick on the top and slim on the bottom, wth a very neat step to the middle

muhahahahaha! Thanks!!! :D

I must fix something. For example the circle around the arrow in the combo-box (thanks derma) and the color of the panel button when you open a new application..

In the Widget Factory preview the circle around the arrow in the combo-box is cut on the right side... nevertheless I like the colors and the shapes.

What is the icon theme and "now playing" widget in the right hand corner?

Report

The icon theme should be GNOME-colors http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/GNOME-colors?content=82562... the "widget" is instead an applet/plugin, its name is Rhythmbox Desktop Art ... you can find that here... http://ppa.launchpad.net/m-buck/ubuntu/pool/main/r/rhythmbox-desktop-art/.

This is a very clean theme, and I'm digging the background you have here. This theme would be sitting in my pc as default for a long time. Good job!
