This is the complete Gnome port of the Alienware Darkstar Theme made for Alienware by the Skin Factory. The Bluestar and Greenstar Themes are based on the Darkstar Theme and its mostly just color changes. The Theme Package Includes:

1.) 3 Gtk2 and Metacity themes
2.) 3 GnoMenu2 Themes (Menus and Buttons) **Install script must be edit to auto install**
3.) Dungeon Font
4.) 5 Background Wallpapers
5.) padster's colorful-alien xsplash (much better than mine)
6.) Screensaver
7.) Icons se-interface, (Red, Blue and Green) and LaGaDesk-BlueNight
8.) Background for Nautilus
9.) usplash
10.) cursor theme X-Alien2-Dark
11.) OpenOffice Splash Screen by tuxkernel (Added per his request)
12.) Gimp Splash Screen

Now Includes a install script set.

Many thanks to nale12 whose original dark_star theme (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Dark_Star?content=110767) provided the foundation that I built this theme on.

Much appreciation for jameshardy88 whose encouragement, assistance and friendship helped me do this. This is my very first Gtk2 theme and I had no idea what I was doing or how to do it when I started. He explained to me what I needed to do and how to go about it. He also proved to me (I really did already know this) that MS is a highly chaotic Cluster F*** where there is NO standardization of naming conventions for anything. His tweaking made the theme much better and made it look a lot more like it was supposed to. He redid the frames and borders and fixed the sliders. He also added a couple of elements I completely missed. Plus getting the buttons to look a whole lot better. jameshardy88 also fixed the issues with the Bluestar version as for some reason after I made the color changes the sliders, progress bars and buttons did not work correctly. He got them working again.

The font is dungeon and to use it simple copy (or move) the font to your .font hidden directory in your home folder. If it doesn't exist then simply make it. You will need to install the font for the menu to work correctly.

Using juan2000's ideas I also added 'Network Tools' and 'System Monitor' commands to the menu but opted not to add the network connection command since its a bit redundant being that it is accessible in the Notification Area of the Gnome Panel. Instead, I opted to add the run command.

There are four backgrounds, including the Original Alienware Darkstar background. All are original works (not by me) made for Alienware and are freely distributable.

OpenOffice Splash Screen by tuxkernel (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Alienware+Openoffice+Splash+Screen?content=119468)

The GnoMenu theme is designed for the bottom panel, though it can be used from the top, because the alien head graphics and wording is integrated into the menu design by the Skin Factory they will appear upside down if used from the top panel.

The Icon sets are Se-Interface by MrSkope (Damian Strain) and ported to Gnome by Naf71 (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Se-Interface-V2+%28Red%29?content=118022). The LaGaDesk Icons are by LaGaDesk (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/LaGaDesk-BlueNight?content=109343) The original Windows Icons for this theme are not available in PNG format. The creators of the Icons used a different type of file system unusable by anyone who does not have their program installed. This leaves Linux out completely in using the orignal Alienware Darkstar Icons.

The Sound files are two from the original Mandrake (Mandriva) Galaxy theme and if you have ever heard them before then you understand why I went and hunted them down for this theme. The rest are royalty free sounds I downloaded that worked well. I did not create a sound theme file and simply suggest you copy (I repeat COPY) the files in /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo, as root, to a backup folder then copy my included sound files into /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo, and over write the files with mine. Main reason is this will also replace the guady (and highly annoying) Ubuntu drum sound with a more pleasant female computer voice saying "Computer Ready"

The X11 cursor theme was originally made by JJ Ying (http://users.wincustomize.com/691873/) and coverted by KuduK (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/X-Alien2?content=117799)

 Great theme but...

I really like these themes. However I don't like gray on black text. The biggest problem I have is all of the alienware stuff during start up. I would like to know how to uninstall the theme. I would like to keep the Icons if possible.

Really nice theme set!!

I had to unpack several themes and move the unpacked folders to a higher hierarchical level within .themes before XFCE could use and utilize them though.

Otherwise they are quite useful and artful!!

 Great, but a bit hard

 by lkjoeldev on: May 7 2011

It's a great theme, but it's a bit hard on the eyes, and it doesn't work completely with the new Ubuntu versions.

You have to install a few things manually if you have Oracle Openoffice.org, or Libreoffice.
