I got the idea for this theme when I saw Gabriella Denizot's simple but beautiful Classy wallpaper. Gabriella kindly gave me permission to use it.
I kept with the simple theme, there are no player controls apart from(*see below) for the seekbar for which I added a small ball to the monocle's chain.
The font I used is Pushkin by west on gnome-look.org, download it here.
It looks best on a plain wallpaper, or just use a plain background colour instead. You can play with the opacity of the lens overlay in the theme's xml file.
Try also commenting out the line for nocover.png - the background shining through the lens is rather nice
Update: some people asked about player controls - you can now use the moustache to go back/forward in your playlist, and the monocle lens to pause/play. I tried to keep them quite subtle. Let me know what you think.
gota do a submission for my birthday. i whipped this up tonight. love it! its loosely based on APPOWS and the Maverick sound panel. uses Droid Sans CAD port by ~parry update2: added seekbar support requires CG 1.7.6 update: i changed up the colors very slightly, and added more contrast to the buttons, and added rating
3 gtk's, 2 metacity's, 2 emerald's combine them however you like. read the include REQUIREMENTS before asking questions.
for anyone who may have missed it, the dscnt substyle is from this shot by ~novoo and the edark style is from my gtk eDark. vlc skin designed to match the look of the panels in this theme
1 you must have GTK 2.0 2 you must have the murrine, aurora, and pixmap gtk engines 3 you must have Nautilus Elementary (default nautilus is destroyed by this theme) 4 you must have Firefox 3.6 with the extension Stylish installed 5 you must have basic customization knowledge (see "LINKS" for more information)
1 copy the theme folders (dscent, edark, and resin) into your themes directory /home/USERNAME/.themes (ctrl+h to toggle .hidden folders) use the appearance dialog to apply the theme 2 import the emerald themes as you would any other emerald theme, if you choose to use emerald. 3 create a new stylish theme and name it something like "resin mods" then copy the included css to this style and save it
Stylish: [link] Nautilus Elementary: [link] Murrine: [link] Aurora: [link] Google: [link] (engines can be found in the repos or by searching the software center)
///NOTES if for any reason you decide not to meet the firefox and nautilus requirements, fear not! i have not abandoned you. you must open the gtkrc inside the theme folder and comment out the following lines: include "Apps/nautilus-resin.rc" include "Apps/firefox-resin.rc" to exclude a line simply add hash marks at the beginning of the line: #include "Apps/firefox-resin.rc" doing this will cause nautilus and firefox to fallback to murrine defaults
