description

Yes... it's here at last! Maverick brings you the Ubuntu look to your Windows 8.1 setup. Finally you can enjoy the orange and dark grey style with this redesigned theme that mixes the best from Ubuntu with flat clean elements giving a beautiful and modern look to your PC.
Check this Screenshot for a detailed view of the theme!
Also don't forget to check out Maverick 8.1 light for Windows 8.1 as well!

• create a Restore Point using System Restore (safety first!)
• patch Windows so you can use 3rd party themes using this tool: uxstyle.com
• install the fonts in the Resources\Fonts folder
• install the theme by copying the content of the Theme folder in "C:\Windows\Resources\Themes\"
• apply the theme from the Personalize panel
• apply the registry settings by running the maverick_8_1_window_metrics.reg file in the Window Metrics folder
• remove the hover glow of the taskbar buttons: System>Advanced Settings>Performance Settings>uncheck Animations in the taskbar
• restart Windows and...
• enjoy using the theme!
OPTIONAL! narrow vertical taskbar: use 7+ Taskbar Tweaker. Right click on the tray icon>advanced settings and set the no_width_limit = 1
 OPTIONAL! make windows explorer look cool: use OldNewExplorer! Check the option: Use command bar instead of Ribbon.
• CAUTION! the theme only works at default Windows dpi/scale level!

changeLog

[2014.08.18]
• initial release of the visual style.

known bugs

• the theme works only using the default windows dpi(96dpi)/scale(100%) level.
 dark text on dark background in the explorer breadcrumbs drop down menu. Unfortunately there's no way to fix this without braking other more important elements in the theme. Thank you Microshit!

check this out!

Check the instructions.. I've made a stylish style for that but I don't think it works on the new Firefox Quantum.

I've replied to your note. It's not a good idea to make the frames dark because that's not the concept of the theme. It will look ugly in most of the apps and you will only destroy my theme.
If you want darker themes there are plenty you can download here on deviantArt.

I've seen this theme a while ago and thinked that this looked wonderful. But infortunately i don't have dem monies to download it. Good work anyways... (It does look like ubuntu unity for whatever reason on my mind)

:icondpcdpc11:
dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2017  Professional Interface Designer
Of course it looks like ubuntu... it's made to mimic the Ubuntu's default theme called Maverick.
Don't worry about paying.. just check ur notes for the download link.
Enjoy :)

I've been curious about this one and had it saved on my bookmarks for a while.
I think the time has come, but I didn't notice that I had to pay for it :/ ..
Do you know if there's a free alternative made by someone else or something, dpcdpc11?

Themes don't grow on trees you know. They involve a lot of time and effort.
Anyway, enjoy!

"Themes don't grow on trees you know. They involve a lot of time and effort."
I know that perfectly, but I also know that the big majority of the themes out there are 100% Free.
So far, the only guy who I saw doing this kinda thing is CleoDesktop :/ ...

Anyways, thank you very very much dude :)

dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Edited Dec 7, 2017  Professional Interface Designer
It's their choice to offer their themes for free. But you'll also see that most themes are badly designed and don't have all the UI elements skinned and are mostly unusable in a daily usage.
CleoDesktop is another cup of tea... Don't get me started!

And you're welcome!

thanks for getting my theme and supporting my work!
it seems you didn't follow the exact HowTo instructions. Please make sure you follow each step accordingly and it will work 100%.
it's important to patch your Windows right and then make sure you copy the files in the right place.
