This is my new Ubuntu GNOME Theme. It's called SummerRebirth because it was started in early September, when the melancholy rising from the end of the summer and the desire to return backward for two or three month were strong. Now it's a little nonsense, but the name was already decided!

In the downloadable archive there are GTK&Metacity theme, Conky configuration files, CoverGloobus theme, AWN theme, and backgrounds for most popular resolutions.

Description & infos:
  • GTK Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): it uses a mix between equinox engine, pixmap engine and murrine engine. Some things are kept from other gtk themes, but I don't remember whic themes!

  • Window Manager Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): in the archive, there are three different metacity themes, but the best for me is this (that is a modification of another metacity theme that I don't remember)

  • Icon Theme: AwOken, made by me (released version 1.4! :D). Folders are new s11 folders by [link] , that will be present in the next 1.5 version. For me, with these folders I reached perfection.

  • Covergloobus Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): it's present in the download archive

  • Wallpaper: original wallpaper is here [link] . In the downloadable archive there are modified backgrounds for 1366x768, 1024x600, 1280x1024, 1280x800, 1440x900, 1600x900 screen resolutions.

  • Dock at the right: avant-window-navigator

  • Notes: At the bottom there is a conky that shows essential informations (like new mails, or weather). In the top-right part of the desktop there are a little conky showing a bar that displays battery charging status, and CoverGloobus. In second and third desktop there are three conky popup, that popups to show other informations:
    * calendar: shows the calendar and uses a python script that prints for each month what has to be done reading from a text file located in my /home. It gives the possibility to insert notes in various colours, and for each month in the year;
    * cpu: it describes himself;
    * forecasts: it describes himself;

The evolution continues...

What is quick shot? It's an idea that I make a screenshot (snapshot) of my desktop and update it whenever I change something. Why? If I make several screenshots every week, it is nothing more than spam. So I think it is better, if I make a continuous update of this deviation. And if I change more than only my wallpaper or a shadow of my windows, then I'lll post a new deviation. What do you think? If you like this idea, you can fave this and you'll see often small changes of my desktop... sometimes daily. If not you can ignore this and all will be good.

KDE 4.9 - Bespin - BE::Shell - BeClock

What has changed?

- wallpaper ( [link] )
- cursor ( [link] )
- some small changes here and there -> all in all pretty much the same setup as in last scrot
