One, Google Chrome on Windows XP uses soft blue colors (on Vista it uses Aero), so this is accurate, rather than a variation.
Two, what's with all the orange? It doesn't look all that soothing to the eyes. But since this is a free world, you can just take the Metacity theme and make an orange color mod if you so please. Or how about some OTHER colors like red or green? ;D - Sep 29 2008

The reason everyone is voting this down and not saying why? The license isn't GPL. This here is neckbeard country, they don't like intellectual property or commercial anything, even if it IS available for Linux. They brew their own beer, grow their own vegetables, and milk their own cows, all in the name of free as in free speech. They don't give a hoot about free as in "I don't have to pay anything"; if this isn't true, then could someone explain Red Hat, Novell, Canonical, TrollTech, etc. to me? Because they make a living selling Linux or Linux-related things.

Honestly, I think it's pretty cool you were able to replicate the UI from Uplink. Much more original than yet another orange/brown theme. - Feb 15 2008

One thing you (and many others!) on this site seem to not realize when making your work: not everyone uses Ubuntu.

Try to make your work distro-neutral. As in, take into consideration the other major distros. Debian, Slackware, Mint, Fedora/RHEL, Mandriva, SuSE... that's just a sample.

So when you make suggestions/ideas for GNOME, don't use distro-specific stuff! - Aug 21 2007

1: I actually go by the name of Techokami. When I said "CMS" I meant "Content Management System", which refers to the software this place runs on.
2: Yes, that's essentially what I'm suggesting. - Aug 07 2007
Tried. Nothing.

Also, if you DO do it like that, then launch notification-created buttons use theme-panel (when means no skinning), but making it more generalized will skin the buttons in logoff/shutdown dialogues (a big no-no!)

Oh, and I wish I could change my username on this CMS. I don't go by "KnuxT15" anymore >_> - Aug 06 2007
Aha, got it!
Add this:
widget_class "*Panel*GtkToggleButton" style "theme-panelbuttons"

And for my next performance, I'll make these buttons use the Murrine engine instead of pixmap! :D - Aug 06 2007
Here it is:
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*Button" style "theme-panelbuttons"
widget_class "*PanelToplevel*" style "theme-panel"
Read it carefully. You set PanelToplevel*Button's style to theme-panelbuttons, but then in the next line you override THAT with something that covers all of PanelToplevel*'s styles to theme-panel. - Aug 06 2007
I'm having the same problem, yet I know I have pixmap installed because all other features in the theme that utilize the engine are working properly. - Aug 06 2007

I know you can make it look really damn close with some experimentation. So what if checkboxes are a bit sharp? You can make the colors correct if you take some time to experiment with styles. - Jun 20 2007
For the vertical line: alter the xthickness and ythickness variables in theme-menu and theme-menu-item until the desired style is achieved.

For your reasons of using pixmap: Change the "roundness" variable in the engine variables. True OSX style needs full roundness (which I think is 9) - Jun 15 2007
It's a slow engine; you lose any speed benefit you'd get from Murrina or even Clearlooks (which is showing its age as of late).

Remove the pixmap engine and set Murrine to use full roundness. - Jun 14 2007

This is rather nice. Just goes to show you that you don't always have to use a fancy theme engine.

Fedora Core 6.
Also, you missed xfsm-reboot and xfsm-shutdown, and the "Add Files" and "Extract Files" icons in File Roller. Otherwise, getting better! - Mar 25 2007
Okay, after finally getting the program to run without a hitch, everything is great! Except... well, you overlooked some commonly-overlooked icons. Don't fret, everyone does it, but at least you can be the first to break that trend =)
First is XFCE Session Manager - that's the logout menu in XFCE. The only three I know of are /actions/xfsm-logout (just make a symbolic link of system-log-out.png), /actions/xfsm-reboot (make a link of view-refresh) and /actions/xfsm-shutdown (make a link of system-shutdown). There may be more - can someone with Xubuntu list any others?
Next is the image resize icon. It's in a strange location: /16x16/stock/object/stock_position-size.png
Without this, right-clicking on an image in Nautilus will give you a big ugly placeholder in the menu... that should be about it. If you can cover those, you'll be my hero :) - Mar 24 2007

Triple post because of a fatal lack of an edit function.

I'm using 0.1.2, and now the segment I had hanging with earlier appears sooner. I am stuck at "Unpacking & Installing Gimp" once again. Is it because I'm running it as an unprivileged user? - Mar 23 2007

This is a great theme, EXCEPT:
-Maximized looks rather bad. There's this gray bar above the window title that eats space - it's like I LOSE space when I maximize my window.
-You need a square version, for people who aren't big fans of round themes.

Fix those and it'll be better :) - Mar 04 2007

You managed to capture the look of XP's login screen perfectly. Don't listen to the zealots - sure, people want "originality" and such, but something like this will help wean people off of Windows to XP gently. People want familiarity with their computer - and it's not just the arrangement or function of widgets. In the mind of John Q. Public, it's all vanity. - Mar 01 2007

Heh, I was going to make something like this for my first Metacity theme... looks like I was beaten to it, though. =P Good job!

Now, I'm going to give you a mittle modification I made. I didn't quite like the double arrows for the close button (it looks... wierd), so I made my own.
First, get this image and save it as close.png in the theme's folder (/home/username/.themes/Win3.x/metacity-1/):
Then, in this theme's metacity-theme-1.xml file, comment out lines 199 to 202, then paste in:
< draw_ops name="close_icon" >
< image filename="close.png" x="0" y="0" width="width" height="height" / >
< / draw_ops >
Remove the spaces between angle brackets and slashes (GNOME-Look's commenting system doesn't like XML it seems)
Save, and reload. You should now have an X glyph in place of two arrows!

I know, I know, I could have used drawing methods available in Metacity, but I dunno how to use those yet. :P - Nov 17 2006

...this should be an edit of the above comment. Why is there no edit function, GNOME-Look admins? :(

Anyways, the Metacity corner problem only seems to happen with gFTP. - Sep 24 2006
FYI, I do _NOT_ use Ubuntu, I use Fedora Core 5. I will not change my distro because of one theme or theme engine.

Alrighty, I finally got this hack working... and it's pretty good. Too bad the creator had to make it seem to be uni-distro only... SHAME.

The only problem I see with the theme right now is with the Metacity. for some reason the corners on the top are still rounded when the window is maximized, when it should be squared, so it looks cut-off. Other than that, great job. - Sep 24 2006
This is *NOT* ClearLooks, like the author said. Instead, it's that Ubuntu-only ClearLooks fork that, for reasons that seem to only be for promoting the Ubuntu distro, is called "UbuntuLooks", and hence is not for people who use other distros, like Fedora Core.

The Metacity is good, the GTK looks good, but you are preventing non-Ubuntu users from using this theme. I truly hope you'll do something to make this more available to everyone... =( - Sep 24 2006

The real answer is this: That is not a theme by Microsoft, it is a custom theme hack made by someone else that looks like Luna but is not.
Why not go bother the guy that ported the Opus3 themes to Metacity? Those were Microsoft Visual Style themes that weren't made by Microsoft.

You (the theme maker) should definatley reconsider the name. I believe this is called "Luna Royale". - Jan 12 2006
