Been trying to get this look for a while now.
I used GDM themes RPanther Milk for the titlebars and RPanther3 for the controls.
The icons were found on http://www.jonmega.com/modules.php?name=Downloads and they replaced icons in a theme I already had working.
The bottom bar is the GDesklets modded-starterbar (available from http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org/).
The top bar is just a 1600x28 image on a normal Gnome panel, but with drawers and custom menus without their icons. It takes some time to configure, but it looks nice in the end. The only problems with it are:
- There is only a square box the size of the drawer to click in
- Some of the menu items had icons that I could not locate and delete
- The title doesn't hilight when clicked.
- The font for the text is wrong, I'm sure. If anyone can offer me any guidance on this, I'd be grateful!
XCompMgr and Transset are used to get the shadows, fade in/out of windows/menus and the translucency on the GDesklets at the side, GAIM and XMMS at the top. Problem with my XCompMgr is that I can enable it in XOrg, but then I lose the ability to play games. I hope this gets sorted soon.
Any comments are warmly welcomed. I wouldn't recommend this method because it is such a botch-job!
