This is a pixmap Metacity theme based off the Luna graphics on Windows XP. I made it out of boredom one day. I also couldn't find any other good Luna themes for Metacity... most of them were lame ones based off Clearlooks and were only Luna-style in the fact that the X button was red and everything else blue.

So, I created the blue one first, then the silver one, then decided to make a pink one based off the silver (there aren't enough pink Metacity themes around here).

To those of you who couldn't find the start button (because you couldn't just search this site for "start button" and find it), I got it from here:


The GTK+ theme in the screenshot is a modified Linsta3.

Update: added mirror links for all the files, just in case my server goes down like it did for a few hours this afternoon. :)

Update (Version 0.02):

I decided to rename the theme Lunacity (a combination of Luna and Metacity, since Luna themes do exist for other window managers, and because I don't plan on making a GTK+ theme, this name fits it better).

I've added the olive green theme, making this a complete Luna set (plus pink). Also, maximized windows lose their curved edges and borders now, like they should.

NOTE: All four themes are included in the one tar.gz file, so extract it and then install the particular themes that you want via their tar.gz files within.

would anyone want their desktop to look like windows?

I'll tell you why; because you're booting it off a thumbdrive at work, and you don't want nosy techs to notice that you're not using there shitty software.

this is perfect for me, thx!

The funny part is, at work I AM the 'tech' and I use things like this to make the USERS think they're still using windoze.

yea, sad thing is most people really will fall for it! :p

I on the other hand would notice the instant I clicked anything... the lack of the simple sharp shadows on drop down menus, the fonts, the probable fact that a small section of the "start button" (assuming you mod this to fool them too) rather lights up where it shouldn't, or doesn't where it should. I would hope that EVERYBODY notices the fact that the "start button" would also have no unique "pressed" state :p

It is only human to err, but to really screw up, you need [strike]a computer[/strike] Windows!

i don't think if one Metacity is like Windows then it is bad.

so many ugly and lame makes my eyes so tired,
for me, this Metacity is clear, bright, and beautiful. it has a good 3D effect.

i like it very much!
thank you for your job!

in these four, i don't like the Pink and the Silver, because they seems a little lame and lack 3D effect. i hope they can like the Blue and Olive.
