Description:

Fast brushed Clearlooks theme made to loosely resemble OSX Tiger

Contains two variations: classic (fast) and aquastyle with blue decorations and aqualike scrolbars (not so fast), and two subvariations of each: normal and bright for different monitors.

Also it contains different metacity themes: T-ish-Brushed-Glass (now default) and T-ish-Brushed (classical flat). If you are using compizinstall T-ish-Metal compiz theme (link below).

Choose your desired combination through theme details dialog.

DOES NOT WORK WITH CLEARLOOKS-CAIRO !!

Based on Clerlooks engine, Ish GTK theme with additional buttons from Expose and GlossyP metacity borders.

Requires clearlooks engine.

IMPORTANT: In order to install all of the themes you'll have to manually extract to ~/.themes dir.

For best results use OSX icons, jaguax mouse theme, and Brushed firefox skin (links below).

Hi,

Thanks for the fix.

I have a new idea. I found an old theme, called: BrushedChrome:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=21916

This theme has a lot of problems, but the brushed background was very cool and fresh!!!

So I just put the background in your theme. Have a look:

I think it looks very well!!! For the first relase ;-) I have no idea how to greate a theme. But perhaps you are interested in?

The source of BrushedChrome is no longer achievable. I puplished it again on my server:

To be honest, it's little bit too much for me. And it'll be a little on the heavyweight side.

But hey, it does not cost me anything except little time to create a new variation of theme and package it.:))
So watch this space, I'll publish it soon.

Thanks.

Well, unfortunately usage of gradient brush give us too unconsistent look.

I just cannot make it to look good enough for publishing.I have tried different approaches and it's always all over the place.

Sorry.

I'm not sure which buttons you mean.

Do you speak about widgets (red,green, yellow), or do you want control buttons to be brushed?

Thanks,

gray bottons like a apples interface graphite, the widgets red, yellow and green are many colors for that borders, im prefer a calm and gray colors for the desktop.

others metacity themes as iridium could be inspire to do.

thank you and congratulations for your job.

the grat job to miss in gnome is a consistent theme with all icons, colors and details to get a better look and feel.

sorry my english!!

Hi,

Well, there is a problem with your suggestion.

If I do the buttons grey there will be very little distinction between focused and unfocused window. Also I have tried to use just one color but came little short on the side of functionality I'm affraid.

So, all this goes too far from my idea when I started modding this theme.

However, as soon as I spare some time I'll publish separate metacity theme that will feature grey buttons.

Thank you for your suggestions.

Hi and thanks!!!

I think the theme will be more pleasant for your eyes, when it is a little bit brighter.

You are probably right, I will lighten the metacity borders too, and publish both versions together in the next release if that's ok with you.

all the brushed themes i've seen so far are low quality, why don't you base them on Tiger Brushed (winamp skin)?
take a look:

it's perfect :D

ps: it was just a suggestion, please don't misunderstand me ;)
