Description:

This is a theme I had fun with, I used the Orange-LiNstaBlackPlastic gtk and made the changes I wanted for this theme and added my own metacity.
It uses the ubuntulooks engine which you can get here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=43255
I use the ringbearer font for the metacity title so I added it with this download.
I am making an icon set for this theme eventually and will add it when its done.
It has inactive states for the metacity (gives it more of a duller brown look) has tiling on every side of the frame.
I probably will change the art in it a few more times before I am totally happy with it, but I thought I would put it up and let you folks have fun changing it yourself.
Have fun with it and change it as much as you like to suite your needs.
Sam




Changelog:

I changed the toolbar, the back tile and with an overlay that streches on top of it to give it some grads, I also changed the scrollbar back and alpha the scroll button in front a bit so you can see some of the back behind (just a bit).
Thats it for this one, I can do a lot more to it but I have another idea for a oldmetalsam theme which I am hoping surpasses them all.
I'll upload it once it's done.
You can see the changes in the last image

Thanks, I am still working on it and there will be more changes to it until I get it like I want it, I'll upload the new ones as I get them done, I think I'll take a break from this and do a wallpaper for it next and upload that next.

 great, but needs more work

Oh wow. Great theme!

But some places are still not finished, and there it's looking ugly :/
Take a look at this screenshot: http://a.imageshack.us/img826/6430/screenshot1qn.png
See, the bottom border, splitter at the right (between messaging and weather), lineedit of dictionary and frames around system monitor applets really suck.
Take this as a feedback and a prompt to further improve your really cool theme :)

Thanks for the comments, I seen that in your image, I didn't totally finish the theme yet, as I moved onto another one I wanted to design. Hopefully I will get the new one finished soon and finish this one off totally, including those lines you were talking about, I also want to get rid of the white box when it loads a page in the bottom taskbar and change it to a alpha grad. I am also going to make an icon theme to go with this one and the new one.
Hopefully I'll have all of it finished soon :)
Thanks again for pointing out that white line it never showed up on mine.

cool I like it.
I sent you a message with a suggested and looking for some ideas on the new theme, check it out and let me know what you think.
Maybe we should start a themeing team or something maybe padster there would be interested in that also.

welcome to unity, the new ubuntu 11.04 (for me sucks) it doesn't reconize panel gtks at all unless they fixed it, last time I checked they didn't, you can use parts of the gtk (buttons etc) and the full metacity file, but unity sort of gave users no choice for the panels etc etc etc because of unity.
In other words ya get what they give ya.
You also have to install the ubuntulooks for this gtk, I don't know if you did that but I left a link above to it and it gives you directions. either way though unity has killed the gtk themeing because it does not reconize it.
Which is why I switched to linux mint, plus I hate the side panel in unity and I like themeing which unity pretty much killed for part of it.
If your happy with unity stick with it but only use the metacity part and you'll have to be content with what they give you. Unless someone has found a way around this mess.
Sorry about that.
If your looking for a distro that will let you use gtks again try linux minth they have ubuntu based distros (without the untiy crap) and also debian distos that are rolling distro :) never have to reinstall, which is what I use although its a bit rough around the edges for the debian version.
Hope this helps you out.
Sam


If it ain't broke don't fix it.
