are those mockups? If not, once the theme is out of your preview app, how do you plan on getting the menubar, toolbar and all those other borders to line up in all the diff apps and window types?

Looks very promising!

Some bits of the border at the top may look like it's part of the menu, but it's actually part of the metacity theme, and will be there even without a menu.Menus in other locations still look okay, though I'll admit they don't look as good as they do at the top of the window.

I was very careful with color choice after failing in my original attempt to port the Gonx theme mockups to GTK (the ones here: http://cotito.free.fr/projects/gonx+index.html).

I'm still tweaking it a bit, but I think it'll look good in most cases. The only think I'm having a real problem with now is deciding how to do side-tabs.

That is a very polished looking theme, though I'm not fond of that shade of blue.

After the initial version is finished, I'll release it tinted in more straight blue, red, and gold flavors. I just want to get this one done first.

Looking very promising. I like it quite a bit so far, but I would recommend using different or smaller -, + and x icons for the window decoration - the current ones look... somewhat queer.

Good luck.

A person on another forum said the same thing. I may rework them, but I'm focusing more on the GTK theme right now.

I'll definitely make it freely modifyable, but I'd like to prevent it from being distributed for a fee by anyone but me. I'm still looking for a license. It's not a big deal; I'll do GPL if I can't find a different one.

Well if you ever want your theme to be accepted and distributed with Gnome, you need to make it GPL, like the rest of Gnome is. :-)

yes, the buttons were the first thing I noticed...that they didn't fit at all.

I love everything except the scrollbar, the metacity theme buttons (as was mentionned before), and the scrollbar arrows. Aside from that, its simply gorgeous. Clean and stylish. For sure one of the best themes I have seen and glad that people are finally creating themes of this caliber...Linux desperately needs it.

of this caliber???
You mean of this style? right? Anyone can make a screenshot theme. Making one where everything works properly is another story ;)

To me, this is a windows/windowblinds style theme, and it looks great. Unlike all the others for linux, if it works right, it'll be a geat theme. We won't know that til we can use it though, will we? Yet, it seems people like screenshot themes and quality for most is not an issue unfortunately.

This isn't just a "screenshot theme" - I've already got most of it completely done, and I'll be releasing the GTK theme today. Probably in just a few hours.

The first release probably won't handle side-tabs on notebook entries incredibly well, but that'll be it as far as I know.

Already, Firefox, Gimp, and Nautilus look exactly as they do in the screenshot above. I haven't seen any visual issues other than the ones you just can't get around, like the Zoom percentage in Nautilus not having a background graphic.

I like a lot of the work you've done here; I'd appreciate it if you'd give me the chance to show this isn't just a mockup with nothing behind it. It'll only be a few hours, anyway.

I'm not saying it's a screenshot theme. I just took issue with the caliber statement because that can't be known until it's used, right? It gets old seeing screenshot themes get more downloads and higher ratings than something you worked hard on to ensure completeness.

I guessed from your earlier statement about sidetabs that this was not another screenshot theme. Heh, I don't even mess with side tabs anymore and if you are that means you care about it being a complete theme. I look forward to its release and more from you, if your work is half as good as it seems.

We can never have too much eyecandy now can we? We can never have too many good themers!!!

Also on that note....Previews in the GTK section that will become the download for the theme suck. They encourge people to vote based JUST on what they see in a screenie. Which in turn encourages them to give a ready to download theme, not of their taste, a vote even though they don't even download, install and use the theme to be able to properly rate it. They don't kow if the images are good and they don't know if it is put together well. They 'personally' don't like they style so they down the theme. That is dumb.

I'd encourage you to remove this preview entry and just release the theme. Won't make much diff either way I know and that doesn't matter, but people that vote based on visual taste are worthless here.

I'm really not much for ratings, despite how I sound. It's just so sad that so many are so braindead and lack any common sense....it's frustrating. Don't think so? Well, making statements like this have knocked most of my ratings down but I don't care, am I silent? No, I'd rather bring to peoples attention what this site and theming is about than have their uneducated ratings.

I too noticed that people will go out of their way and peruse my entire uploads to vote "bad" on them. Its lucky that most of those release our hard work for help the community and not to get "good" ratings.

On the topic at hand, yes it remains to be seen if an actual theme can do justice against the screenshot. There is still alot of work to do with GTK+ and themeing, but I hope that our author accomplishes what he has set out to do.

I love seeing creative and prominent work spring to life, from a mockup or whatever. I think many things can still be achieved with quality people doing the back end.

I am looking forward to seeing just how close he can get it as it "looks" very promising, a large load to take, but lets hope he surprises us.

I still stick by my comments as I do think its gorgeous and the voting issue doesnt concern me. I would like to think that he is not here to amass votes but to get some feedback.

If it is releases as a working theme as per the screenshot, then I am sure he is going to get all the "good" votes he can get :)

-I was hoping for more prelights than just buttons. I don't like dead themes.
-insensitive font in firefox menus not readable. Since ins fonts can not look good in dark themes it is best to lighten it so that it is readable in non-gtk apps like firefox, oo etc...
-strange bg[PRELIGHT] if that is how you want it, sorry

Here's a nice icons theme
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=24645
I have already talked to carpelinx about a gnome port and he's interested. Said he would give the svg's when the final release was done so that the kde stuff can be replaced with gnome stuff.

Goes perfect I think and would make a great metatheme. I was going to make a matching gtk/mcity and kwin theme but I'm no longer interested. Go for it.

It's still very early; more prelights will come as I go through and figure out where they're needed. Right now, I think they only really occur on buttons and spinners.

On my machine, Firefox looks okay, but I'm aware of some of the font color strangeness, and will be attempting to correct it as much as I can.

I'll be going through and adjusting quite a few of the colors (both font and background) later tonight - really, I just wanted to get something out tonight, to let people know it was real.

Thanks for the comments and the icon suggestions!

The strange prelight and some of the other weirdness is corrected now, and I've got a metacity theme included.

I wasn't sure how metacity themes works to be honest, so I thumbed through your Noir metacity theme to figure it out. Good theme, btw.

Really came together with the metacity loaded. Great job!

Here's the bg prelight I'm talking about
http://kwh.kernow-gb.com/~bvc/images/smoked-glass-bg-pre.png
that rust/redish color

Good job on the metacity, though I don't like that style of buttons I love the rest of it. Only prob is that all your shaded state left and right sides are wrong.

Make more!!! ...we'll use'em :D

Weird; shaded windows look fine to me - can you post a screenshot of what you mean?

Thanks about the weird color - I'll fix that. Not sure how it got by me.

Thanks again.
