I love this theme!!

Just one request/question... When I log out or want to shut down my PC, the dialog looks a little weird. Like it has the theme from the menubar tiled all over...

Is there a way to fix that?

Thanks :D

Great theme. Only gripe is lack of transparency in the menu bars (application list, application menus, etc). Good job otherwise. I'll keep it until I'm bored ;-)

A linux theme with that name was released before by *kal-el84 on deviantart.
I think that you have to respect him and rename your theme.

You can find the original theme here: http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/33281142/

this is starting to be annoying... ¬¬
why you didn't take the time to read a bit before posting?

first, the author you link to already posted here, why don't you read a few posts up?

second, his theme was based on a windows theme by another author (fantastic902) who gave me permission for this release.

third, since this theme started to be developed before kal-el release, includes totally new artwork (including a metacity theme) and he didn't even credited some of his resources... why should i change the name?

i could go for a fourth or fifth but, to be sincere, i just don't want to.

how would you feel if you work for a week or two and some1 comes with a comentary like yours...

Hi!
Nice theme!

BTW, what's the font in the metacity?

Thanks!

The one you see on the screenshot is a typical Mac font, Handel Gothic D.

You can also try Lucida Console, which looks pretty good :)

I did my porting of Fantastic and a little tutorial and published them on deviantart on May, 14, so I think you could see and add also my file and give me my credits rather than create a new content.

The link is http://www.deviantart.com/view/33281142/

Let me know..sorry for my English.
Bye

I know, I talked to you before on devinatart and you are already credited, why didn't you take the time to take a look at the readme, or even better, read the description of the file before posting? ;)

Well, I decided to go on my own because first, I already started my port before you released yours. Second, to be sincere, yours seems to not be as accurated as I wanted. Third you didn't worked on a Metacity theme to go with GTK nor a matching XMMS skin.

Finally, why don't you want to let people choose between them? Asking me to not release it is not a good policy.

PS: You better credit (and contact) roberTO, original author of the GTK theme you modded.

I think I misunderstood the part 'give me my credits rather than create a new content' or at least I wasn't clear enough, sorry in that case.

If you want me to add your file I wouldn't have any problems but... don't you think it will be a bit confusing for the user to download a file and find 2 different themes?

Anyway a link to your file will be present on the readme and the description, as before, cheers :)
