This is a Metacity theme based on the Homosapien mockup done by 0rAX0.

This theme now has a online customization tool (called Customizer - link below) that allows you to tweak the theme to *your* liking which you then download and install.

A special thanks to 0rAX0's for his amazing mockup, without it I wouldn't have been able to do this.

See 0rAX0's original mockup at http://0rax0.deviantart.com/art/Homosapien-mockup-152444481

P.S. Made for use with the Human theme.


********** Latest **********

Created Customizer

The Customizer is an online customization tool that allows you to tweak the base Homosapien theme to *your* liking which you then download and install.

Want a smaller titlebar or how about a bigger one... no problem.

Want the menu icon to be that orange dot again or maybe just stick with the application icon... no problem.

Want to define the theme color independent of your system/gtk color or maybe just stick to matching your system/gtk color... no problem.

Hate those rounded bottom corners... no problem just turn them off.

If there is enough interest I'll look at adding more options like:
- buttons on the left like osx
- switch between different sets of buttons
- add a colored border (like the Homosapien 2 mockups)
- your suggestions

Please let me know what you think by adding a comment below.

What a nice work.
I'm following you, installing every release, since version 0.1.
At every release is getting always better.
The only thing i dislike is the menu button. i don't like the application icon, so at every release i edit the theme, restoring the 0.4 behavior.
but that's personal flavor.
Nice work. very nice work.

as a tip i suggest using this metacity with ubuntu sun gtk theme, version dawn.
amazing combination!

keep it on!
Thank you very much for helping me and others have a better 'place' to work.

kindly elvisd

No problems and thanks for you comments.

I think I'll stick with showing the applications icon because it sometimes aids in window navigation/application discovery when the titlebar text is covered by another window.

Man, i'm impressed. Homosapien is so much elegant. I brings some modernity to Ubuntu and at the same time keep it's roots. Really nice job ! I doubt that canonical can create something better than this one.

It's elegant. thinner titlebar (like Dust series) would be better.

This is getting better all the time, fantastic release. Functional, usable, clear, simple, elegant, original. Definitely should be a candidate for the Lucid release.

I don't even remember if I have already commented but wow this would be a fabulous default theme... I really hope Canonical chooses this one! Nice work!

I really like:
*the current thicker titlebar
*the current rounded bottom edges
*everything else I can think of

Could be improved:
*Could you possibly make the buttons such that it is more obvious when you move the mouse over them, not too much of a colour change or glow but just a slight hue change or something.
*could you make the menu selection look more like it does in this theme and other related themes:
...I just am not a big fan of the default selection look for menus... keep in mind I am not saying your theme should have a dark look but just that the shape of the selection area shouldn't attempt to be glossy imho.
*When you open up an 'about' dialog in an app - something that only has the close button - is it possible in this situation to use a fully rounded close button instead of the usual one?

Fabulous work mate! I am simply pointing out what I notice so it can be improved even more! Thanks a ton!

Thanks for your feedback.

* Buttons - I'll try looking at some different effects and see how they work out.

* Menu - This is drawn by your selected GTK theme (ie the "Controls" tab not the "Window Border" tab).

* Close button - The theme already supports this but not if your using compiz, try using metacity and see the difference. Have a look at http://www.zacbarton.com/metacity_vs_compiz.png to see what i mean. This could be a compiz bug?
