Description:

This is a port of the imetal OSX theme by AndyBlac . It uses the pixbuf engine so it's a little slow, but i couldn't make an accurate port without it.

Now that Azel is finaly completed and released, i managed to update imetal too ... There is only one theme now, if you want to use globalmenu with it , just open the gtkrc file found inside the theme folder and change the line (it's near the end) :
include "Tweaks/tweaks.rc"
to
include "Tweaks/globalmenu-tweaks.rc"
and reload the theme.

In order to extract the archive , change the suffix to tar.gz .

v0.97 :

v0.96 :
- Now the same theme works with or without the globalmenu. Just change
include "Tweaks/tweaks.rc"
to

if you are using the globalmenu applet and hack.
- Added shadows to arrows.
- Combobox and optionmenu now look completely the same.
- Spinbuttons comboboxes and optionmenus now have the same arrows for a more consistant look.
- Toolbuttons changed.
- Metacity themes now have allot less aliasing and wider left and right borders in order to make resising easier.

- Removed the clearlooks versions from the pack.
- Most of the tweaks for individual apps are now allot more specific in order to speed up the theme.

- Changed the Thunar toolbar icons spacing.
- Gnumeric now looks as it should.
- gFTP now has full gradients.
- Fixed volume control sliders background color.
- Inkscape now has gradients. I still can't skin every Inkscape toolbar individualy (and i don't think it's possible) but if you hide one of the top 2 toolbars it should look ok.
- Changed the color of the rulers for the imetal-gradient version.
- Gnumeric, File Roller , Evolution and Synaptic non continuous gradient with imetal-gradient fixed.
- Epiphany has a round searchbox.

find the 'include "nautilus-tweaks.rc"' line near the end of the file. Change it to include "nautilus-tweaks-notext.rc" (only the macmenu version needs this change) and do the same for the 'include "epiphany-tweaks.rc"' line.

- Changed the Thunar address bar arrow icon (see 1st screenshot).
- Slight change to the panel background.

v0.72 :
- The menu bar applet and other panel applets that have a menubar now properly inherit the panel background.

- Fixed some problems with the xfce panel and applets. It should now be fully skinned.

v0.70 :

if you are using the gradient version of this theme and nautilus doesn't look like that for you, please tell me what looks different and also send me a screenshot if you can.
If you simply want to know how i skinned nautilus to look like that , have a look at the nautilus-tweaks.rc file .

How do I change the progress bar to match the scrollbars? The progress bar still is like Clearlooks.

You are probably using the old clearlooks version of the skin. Just go to theme preferences and select imetal-gradient (or imetal-gradient-macmenu if you are using the macmenu gtk hack).

Sorry for the late response , i was away for a few days. Go to the ff main menu , goto tools -> Addons , and drag the ff skin to the addons window. If you want to have a menuless ff, drag the imetal-gradient variant and the personal menu extension. Press the use theme button under the imetal-gradient entry on the themes tab and restart firefox. Open the Addons dialog again , goto extensions and press preferences under personal menu. Navigate to the miscellaneous tab and press settings. Check the Hide Menubar Option and also select on the right side which menu entries do you want to have on the toolbar context menu.
If you don't want to hide the ff menu, just skip all the steps about the personal menu extension and install the imetal-gradient-menu skin instead.

Deviant Art renames the files for a reason i can't comprehend . Change the file's suffix to tar.gz and extract it somewhere. Open the folder and read the readme for instructions on how to set everything up. The skin on the pics is the gradient variant.

I just wonder, how do you get the mac-menu-bar to be transparent? Also, the label doesn't seem to be at correct line as rest of the text on the menu-bar. How can I fix that? And is the GNOME one (the one you get when only viewing desktop) just for show?

Thanks for a good theme!

Yes, the default menu is just for show. I couldn't compile anything more complicated than that.
The text alignment probably has to do with the font. I use Sans , size 10, resolution 90, and slight hinting.
As for the transparent panel in compiz fusion go to general options, opacity settings, window opacities and add gnome-panel with a value of 70. You can set opacities for individual apps in beryl too, but i don't remember the exact settings to tweak right now.

Also set the size of your gnome panel to 24 for the text to align correctly.

Thank you, the text is working now. Probably me being dumb, but I can't figure out the opacity settings.. Currently I add a new one just called "gnome-panel", with opacity 70, as you told me. I restarted X, but nothing changed. Is it supposed to have another name than gnome-panel?

Sorry, i should have been more precise . In the opacity windows box type :
name=gnome-panel
No need to restart anything.
