Description:

Well..... I enjoy trying different things, and on a little endeavor to try and imitate Microsoft Windows Vista style panels, I made my own button and panel background.

***Note*** Careful with the GTK2 theme you use this with... depending on your background picture and GTK theme, the text might be hard to read on the panel, and the background COULD be messed up.

To install:
Just move the start button icon somewhere and use it as the GNOME Main Menu button's icon. You can do this in the GNOME Configuration Editor, in about 30 seconds.
1) Vote Good!
2) Start "gconf-editor" in the terminal.
3) Under apps > panels > objects > object_X, where X is the number of the "object" that is type "menu-object", check 'use_custom_icon' on the right and give a path to the icon under 'custom_icon'
Refer to
http://www.rapidshare.com/files/29454963/gnome-panel.tar.gz
for debs that will remove the arrow on the main menu. You might need to install a lot of dependencies for building GTK, but, it's worth it I guess.


Move the panel somewhere and set it as the panel background by right clicking, selecting properties, and selecting the background tab. Change the panel size to 36px to use the the larger version. Use the 24px one if you want to leave your panel small.




Changelog:

(0.5.5) Gave Gnome.png a makeover, if you will. It's not blurry or ugly anymore, and I made a second version that fits Scaled.png

(0.5) Changed up Gnome.png a little bit and added a few extras I made.

(0.4.5) Added made-from-scratch GNOME start icon. It looks a lil crappy, but usually the artist himself is the toughest critic he'll face. I replaced the first screenie with one of it.


(0.4) Added a new panel (Scaled.png). Refresh your browser's cache and take a look at the second screenshot.
And again, feel free to request any distro flavored start button! I'll be adding a gnome one soon.

(0.3) Added Ubuntu-Studio vista style panel button I made in the GIMP based on 'duke86's work. It's a little rough right now and I'll keep on tweaking it until I'm satisfied.

 Right path?

When I go to gconf-editor I have to go to apps-panel-default_setup-objects-menu_bar to get to where you explained on the how-to because the your path doesnt exist in my gconf, is this ok?. I changed the settings there but nothing happens. I even replaced the distributor-logo and that doesnt do anything either. Im running Ubuntu Feisty CE v3.2. Any ideas?

Well, make sure you added a Main Menu applet to your panel. And the menu-bar is the Applications Places System thing, and you can only change the icon to menu-objects. The only way to change the icon for the menu bar would be to manually place a new start-here.svg in /usr/share/icons/etc/etc/

Honestly I don't know how to fix this. Are you saying you have no "apps-panel-objects"?

I was running gconf as sudo, that's why it wouldn't show up. Ok so I changed it and it changes but I want it to be bigger than the panel like in Vista and your screenshot but instead it's fitted into the panel. Any ideas why?

it seems your theme (Linsta I'm guessing?) is applying a menubar-background, and because the background to the window list is considered a menubar, the background is applied there also. Try using a theme that doesn't apply menubars, for example, if you're using Ubuntu, Human.

And, god, I hate to advertise this theme again, but, the one I use, Glossy P, fits the panel quite nicely and is featured in the screenshots. It's slightly OS X-ish, but everything in it is original. (http://art.gnome.org/download/themes/gtk2/571/GTK2-Glossy_P.tar.gz)

Sorry to force the choice on you, but it seems, either disable menubar backgrounds in your theme, use a different theme, or drop the Vista-Panel...

Hey,

this panel looks good but is ginda hard to install on Ubuntu 7.10 with Gnome 2.20. Could you release a updated package with gnome 2.20 based files?

Thanx.
