Description:

I set out to create a 'glowing' luminous-type pixmap based theme.
I originally made it with gnome 2.18 in mind with a transparent pixmap where the colour would be determined by the background colour, but it meant having bright blue/green/red/etc elsewhere and which didn't look nice at all. Therefore, i had to create several separate colour mods.
There are some ugly areas and rough-around-the-edges aspects that i'm not happy with, so i hope that i can rectify them over the next few weeks/months. I also may make the background less intense, but that may spoil what i set out to achieve.
I hope you like it anyway. Please leave some feedback, and possibly include how it could be improved :).


The icon theme that i've used in the screenshot is glass. you can get it here:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Glass+Icons+Theme?content=32146
The metacity theme that i've used is the metacity theme in LiNsta3. You can get LiNsta here:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/LiNsta+3+%28Linux+is+Not+Vista%29?content=44570


Install manually, not through the gnome theme manager.

Aero was used a template to write my theme rather than having to write a theme completely from scratch. There are very few components or code remaining from the original theme, though.

I have taken the menubar from BrushedChrome and edited it to fit with mine.

I've created .debs (for debian/ubuntu) of your 4 themes, take a look at my website:

This is THE most awsome theme that I've EVER seen thus far!
I love the sense of depth, and luminosity!
You inspire me to learn how to create themes!
Great Job!
BTW.,How DOES one go about creating themes?

thanks for the kudos :).
i'm still a beginner myself, so i can only tell you how i have gone about making themes. a few months ago, i started doing simple colour mods of various themes, and this enabled me to become acquainted with the various colour controls(eg bg[NORMAL] etc) and the various widgets.
this theme stems from the first pixmap theme i have attempted. pixmap themes are rather more involved as it means that you have to create the various widgets yourself. i have found this to be useful as a reference:
http://developer.gnome.org/doc/API/2.0/gtk/
i think the best way to learn about theming is to first take a theme and change the colours and settings within the gtkrc file around to see what effect it has.

hope that helps.

thanks ;).
black? surely you're joking :D. that would mean that you wouldn't see anything at all. maybe you mean dark grey. i guess its possible. i may give it a try if you're interested in using it.
