I promised someone I would create themes with a transparent panel to match the Swar Themes for Ubuntu 11.10 so here they are...
This is a collection of themes I designed for Ubuntu 12.04 and Gnome 3.4. I have only tested these themes in Ubuntu 12.04 Unity but I am sure they will work with most Gnome 3.4 based Operating Systems.
These themes are a merge of my Swar Blue + Swar-Black-Base-Orange + Originalseeds DarkCold4.
Originalseed, the author of the theme DarkCold4, deserves the credit for their work that has enabled me to create this (and soon to be many more) new theme(s) and many thanks to Originalseed.
To download the DarkCold4 theme please go to http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=143165
These themes are based on the Gnome 2 theme Slickness-Black which is the best Operating System theme I have ever had. I do not want to see such digital artwork lost with the progression of improvement so I have been learning how to import, alter and develop themes.
The desktop images I use can be found from Digital Blasphemy by Ryan at: http://www.digitalblasphemy.com/
It has worked for me and it is my third attempt at theme development so please be kind. If there are bugs then help me to become more skilled so I can create better themes or use my themes to create even better themes.
Should you download this file you will be downloading the following themes version 1.5 with a transparent top panel with a shadow which is what I had in the Sway Themes for Ubuntu 11.10.
Thus the naming structure...
-I = Invisible-panel
*** themes in this package ***
- Sway-I Black-Base GREEN Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base GREY Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base LIGHT BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base ORANGE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base PINK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base PURPLE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base RED Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base RED DARK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base ROYAL BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I Black-Base YELLOW Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I GREEN Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I LIGHT BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I ORANGE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I PINK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I PURPLE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I RED Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I RED DARK Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I ROYAL BLUE Invisible-Panel
- Sway-I YELLOW Invisible-Panel
These themes are almost a fork of the Sway Themes Version 1.3 so I will not erase the 1.3 All-In-One Download but in time I will update the individual theme downloads to version 1.5.
I hope you enjoy the Sway Themes as much as I do...
