Cool that worked. Thanks. - Oct 24 2008
Thanks for that.

Mine isn't exactly the same. I have an Opacify option under Accessibility,but no Opacity, Brightness and Saturation and no Opacity Tab. Maybe I am running a different version.

But I'll play around with the settings and see what I can do. - Oct 24 2008
Hi, I really love the theme. Nice work!

Any idea how I can make my menu a little transparent like yours? Do I have to be running a XFCE desktop?

I am running Ubuntu 7:10 w/Compiz btw.

Thanks - Oct 23 2008

'A' for originality!

I've been waiting for someone to do something like this.

A lot of web design has moved away from the Shinny and Glossy everything, and on to textures, torn paper, and brush strokes. I always thought someone should bring this to the desktop.

As a quick example:


If you look, the headings are highlighted with what looks like a stroke of blue watercolor.

Or the navigation bar here:

Thanks nstamoul,

I actually started using a different icon theme, but I keep my eye on the project ;)

Now that there is a .deb package I'll have to try it out again. - Sep 30 2008
I'll try reinstalling it. I know I used this set several versions back and it was fine. I set my zoom to 150% by default, and tried different sizes.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I like the project. - Sep 06 2008
I am sure I am just doing something wrong, but all my folders are tiny.

I dragged and dropped the tar.gz file to my Appearance screen - no problem - and I also dropped the extracted folder to /usr/share/icons

Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you.

Very cool. Nice work. I haven't used Elegant Brit in a while, but I still love it.

I don't use Arch though. I looked into it and it seemed a little too advanced for myself at the moment... or maybe that was Gentoo... - Sep 23 2008

I am glad someone is working on this. I really think this is something that should be in an OS by default.

Surprisingly only Windows does, my Mac and Linux OS don't. I actually just install Purrr to batch rename when I am in linux.

Good luck with your script! - Aug 25 2008

You did a really great job with this. Maybe the best WillWill Ibex yet.

If you have time to answer, the colour of my text in Terminal is light brown which is very hard to see. In your screenshot it is white. Any ideas?

Thanks so much!

When I made some wallpaper I used Inkscape to try out some open source software and to contribute to the community.

But I think using Illustrator is fine. Adobe makes awesome software. I am a photographer and graphic designer and I wish I never had to use a mac, but I do, because I need Adobe software.

I am all for getting it ported to linux and have no problem with seeing work from Illustrator on here. Of course I understand that using open source is the idea for this site. - Jul 25 2008

Actually, I ended up making a GDM, Splash Screen, Wallpaper, and a GRUB screen to fit the theme:

Links to all the files can be found of that page. - May 19 2008
I love the theme! It took a lot to get me away from the Slickness theme.

I also really love the icon theme Eikon, but have a few problems.

The firefox icons are missing (in the menu, desktop shortcuts, and on the panel) and the volume control and the network status icons are black so I can't see them on my panel.

Does anyone know how to fix/change this? Is anyone maintaining this icon theme?

Also, you have customized folders for 'images' 'downloads' etc. Where can I find those icons? I have added 'emblems' to the folders, which are nice, but not the same as yours. Or maybe it is because you aren't using Nautilus.

I made some simple Wallpaper to fit the theme if anyone would like to have a look:

and a GRUB screen:

Thank you,

Thanks so much for the great theme. It looks great and has icons for everything!!

I just wanted to ask if anyone knows how I could change the default folders to look like the blue folders from the Kamel icon set:

I tried copying the kamel folder icons and replacing the gartoonredux "folder.svg" file and any others that look like they are used for the folder icons, and placed the new set in a folder in ~/.icons, but it didn't work. The icon folders just defaulted to some simple grey ones.

I am using Gutsy 7.10 -so compize

If anyone can help I would be so happy as my perfect desktop would be complete.

Great Work. It's hard to find a dark theme that is functional.

Same question about the icon set. It looks like a leopardish icon set I have but you have really cool customized icons for your folders :"pictures" "music" etc.

I think it looks really nice, but how do I install it? All my GTK themes are "tar.gz" files. When I unzip it I get folders and files.

Do I need to change to the folder in Terminal and do a "make" "make install" or something like that first? - Mar 21 2008

Hey just wanted to ask,

Some text isn't visible because of the colour settings, ie: Banshee you can't see the name of the song playing because it is written in black on a black background.

Or really light gray text on a white background which is hard to read - again in Banshee when the song recommendations are shown from

Anyway I can fix this?? Otherwise stellar theme man. really. - Feb 10 2008

Great work. It looks really good with the Elementary icon set.

I have one problem. The same one I have with the mac_4_lin and/or the leopardish theme.

I like to make my bottom panel transparent, but when no windows are open there is still a black rectangle to represent one open window and doesn't look nice.

Anyone know what i might be doing wrong/missing? I can post a screenshot if necessary. - Jan 30 2008
