Crono is a dark style for the Murrine engine based on Shiki-Colors [link]
3 color options - Blue, Green and Pink.
This theme requires the latest Murrine engine. (0.90.3+) The panels use the pixbuf/pixmap engine.
Forms on some websites use the default widgets from the theme. This can be fixed by global or site-specific userstyles (CSS). Opera can use custom CSS files by default in site-preferences (or global). Firefox users need to install the Stylish add-on.
See another screenshot here for preview image information - [link] (Only difference here is the font UnDotum.)

This is a pixmap + mist theme. (Engines included by default in Ubuntu.)
(CTRL+H to view hidden folders in your filemanager.)
1. Put the emerald theme in /home/username/.emerald/themes/ Open the emerald theme manager and select Shiftie from the list.
2. Put the Shiftie folder in /home/username/.themes/ Open the settings for Appearance and select Customize. Select Shiftie in the widgets list.
3. To use the star-here.png (shift logo) icon you'll need to put it in your current icon theme's folder and backup+remove any icons that are named start-here.svg/png. Your icon theme should be located in /home/username/.icons/.
If you're using an OS default icon theme you'll need to open the gconf-editor and select to use a custom application icon in the applications-menu.
After all this - Terminal > killall gnome-panel to refresh the panels.

2008.02.28 - Big update to the gtk theme. All the widgets have been changed. - Shinier panel buttons. - Old version with the old widgets also included.

Icons are XubuntuStudio from xfce-look.org Font is AvantGarde LT Medium.
To use the start-here.png icon you'll need to check your icon theme. It should be located in /home/username/.icons/ (Press ctrl+h in your file manager to view hidden folders.) If you don't have the .icons folder you can create one and put your icon sets there. (This may however be different if you use any other dist than Debian/Ubuntu. If so, then open gconf editor and select to use a custom icon for the applications menu.)
Go to /.icons/your icon theme/scalable/places/ and see if you have a start-here.svg icon. If you have one, make a backup of it and remove the original. Now go to (or create) the 48x48/places/ folder and make a backup of the start-here.png icon (if any). Then put the start-here icon from Kemikal in that folder. Open a terminal and write killall gnome-panel to refresh the panels.
:: Concept :: This time I wanted to create a darker theme with a pixmap bg. Further all control-elements (buttons, scrollbars... etc) should be transparent. To create this overlay effect and getting it displayed correctly wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and this may cause problems. This makes the theme pretty experimental as well...
:: GDM :: If you have a widescreen monitor, please rename the file "bg-wide.png" to "bg.png" in the gdm-theme directory.
Metacity Because metacity resizes the titlebar if the title font is too big, I recommend to use the font "snap" as window title font. With other fonts try sizes around 7 and 8.
:: Note :: To enjoy the theme in all it's sexyness be sure to copy the userContent.css to your firefox profile. If you find any bugs please let me know (if you have a minute a screenhot would be much appreciated). The pattern for the bg is from theinspirationgallery.com (modified of course).
:: Screenshot :: The wallpaper (also used as bg for the gdm-theme) is from mandolux.com (slightly modified by me). Thx again Mando for letting me use it! Icons: Smokikon by magnussuther [link] Conky: [link] Font: Snap (artwiz)
:: Changelog v0.5 :: + fixed the "This theme will not look as intended..." error + new expander style + widescreen gdm-bg
:: Changelog v0.4 :: + many improvements of the gtk-theme + new gtk version with tool- and menubar (Mirav2) + new Emerald and Metacity (Mirav2)
Nothing Out Of The Ordinary. Never got around to release this port. I started to work on it when I released NOOTO VS but then stopped for some reason. But now it's here and it requires the Aurora GTK Engine, 1.2 or later. The gtk is based on fratrip's Aurora Leopard.

//What is this? +A custom gtk theme using a mix of the aurora gtk engine and inspired by Mac OS X Leopard's design, for the linux gnome desktop environment.
//Requirements? +The aurora gtk engine and clearlooks engine. Aurora can be found here : [link] . Clearlooks comes installed by default on modern gnome desktops.
//Suggestions and notes. +Extract to /usr/share/themes for best results, so that both root and normal user applications can use the theme. +Use along with one of my icon sets for best results. Find them here: [link] . +Also, if you like it and really appreciate my work, PLEASE add this to your favorites and comment. +Also as has told me, if you should want to try and experiment for it to look better add these lines in the gtkrc:
GtkScrolledWindow::scrollbar-spacing = 0 # 0 pixels between gtklist and scrollbar
GtkToolbar::shadow-type = GTK_SHADOW_NONE # no border for toolbar
//Thanks +Special thanks to for the metacity and for the icons and suggestions. Be sure to check out their galleries too.Thanks in advance. Enjoy!
/Changelog: +2.14.08- Added metacity window border (thanks again to ) .
