This is a GNOME Shell theme(Smooth Inset) optimised for small screens, like netbooks or just 1024x768 resolution. The theme is optimised for space saving and element sizes are reduced and also icon sizes are smaller.

Instructions:

Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes. Load the zip file with the GNOME Tweak Tool

Thanks a lot, looks really good on my netbook (1024x600) any plans for a GTK3 theme to match this one?

Thanks. GTk3, well sort of but GTK3 themes are a pain to do and not as flexible as GNOME Shell theme css.

What menu panel? GNOME Shell has a status menu from the user name.
