This is a GNOME Shell theme based on ANewStart suite. It's not included in the suite yet since I have to finish GTK3 theme, so I decided to upload gnome-shell theme separately.

ANewStart suite:


Wallpaper:


Font in the preview: Alte Haas Grotesk

Icons:



Instructions:

Extract the zip file and move the 'ANewStart' folder to ~/.themes . This path is usually where GNOME Shell user themes are stored. Now, use the Gome-Shell theme extension to select ANewStart theme.

To install Alte Haas Grotesk font, download and extract the zip file and put all the TFF files in your ~/.fonts folder.

Compatibility: GNOME 3.2 and over.

2011-12-09 Update:
  • Added support for Dash extension

  • Removed application icon from the top-left bar


2011-11-11 Update:
  • Better scrollbars (specially in the applications overview)

  • Now popup-menus seem less "floating" (but I have to work further on them)

  • Less crowding of applications in the overview: now they're more ordered and spaced.

  • Solved little bug in the dash: now the theme should be slightly faster!


2011-11-10 Update:
  • Better font color in applications view and application categories

  • Improved rendering of window captions in the window view (now they're more clear and slight)

Ma grazie mille! Sono contento che ti piaccia!
Che strana casualità però :) Io ti ho scritto perchè mi piaceva la tua foto e poi (per pura casualità appunto) tu sei una ubuntu user e puoi provare i miei temi! ihih

PS: grazie anche del :+fav:!

Già! Anche se con questa ultima versione di Ubuntu mi sa che dovrò smanettare più del solito per riuscire ad installarli... Ma non importa.

P.S. Piacere mio! :)

Is there a grey version of this theme? Gray-Revenge will not work for GTK3 right ?

I'm doing a theme also for gray revenge but you have to wait since I'm experiencing some issues with gnome-shell itself :(

I would rate this as the best Gnome-Shell/GTK 3 theme! Thanks a ton for this amazing work!

ciao, intanto vorrei farti i complimenti per questo splendido tema... poi una domanda:

ho notato che rispetto ad altri temi questo sembra essere un pochino più "pesante" per esempio quando apro la dock (quella di gnome shell) o apro e richiudo attività mi scatta un pochino, è normale o è il mio pc?

Guarda è una cosa che ho notato anche io (e altri utenti).. purtroppo risulta essere più carico di effetti degli altri temi, e questo danneggia le prestazioni!

Ci sto lavorando, però non credo di poterci fare più di tanto, a meno di stravolgere completamente il tema! A mio avviso preferisco avere una cosa un po' più carina anche se scattosa ogni tanto :)

Però ho anche notato anche che con l'ultima versione (io ora sto usando la 3.3.2) la cosa è molto meno evidente!

I love this theme and can't wait for the GTK3 theme but it seems to crash a lot when going into the expose thing. Is there any log or anything I can post to help correct the crashes?
alecive's avatar
alecive Interface Designer
What version of gnome-shell do you have? Did you experienced this with the default theme? Unfortunately I have no idea regarding the log stuff :(
kzz5's avatar
I'm running 3.2.1-2 on fedora 16. This seems to be the only theme that crashes, the default theme never crashes.

It's really weird, since I'm running gnome-shell 3.2.2 on Ubuntu (ppa ricotz testing) and all works correctly? Maybe you have some extension that is in collision with my theme.. try to disable all of them, and tell me if you experience the same issue! :)

Lovely theme; beautiful simplicity. Thank you.

Can I donate some other way besides paypal? (I don't like to use this corporation), please send me a note.

Sorry but the only way I know is Paypal (I actually don't get so much donations to open two or more different channels :) ), but if you want you can donate me dev points!! :)

amazing theme!, i really love it!! Do you know if i can remove the icons of the apps showing at the top panel when the windows is focused?. For instance in your screenshot you can see the Files icon.
I tried another theme that had them removed by default. I'd really love to use this theme without those icons. Ty!

Thanks mate! For your request, you read my mind! I'm working on the theme to remove this effect, since also for me is ugly and annoying!

So wait a bit and I'll update the theme! :)

Definitely the best theme for Gnome-shell

It has that Gaia theme feel to it.
