A rather unfinished style in my opinion, yet still very usable. It's inspired by - [link] so I would suggest that you use it with nautilus-elementary.

It's almost how I myself would like my desktop to be. Rather soft, non-intrusive, and plain simple. It's still a shame though that some GTK applications breaks consistency. :/

In this "screenshot" only Firefox and Nautilus is the real deal. (Except for the google mockup in Firefox.) The panels can look like that, but mine don't, so I just quickly threw together something in Photoshop.

I suggest that you use a dock. The dock I threw together in photoshop here can possibly be done with AWN or GNOME-DO. (I've not tested though, so don't bother asking me.)

Also, Firefox isn't themed here. It's the default theme with panels switched around, plus the menubar removed with an extension.

Wallpaper: [link]
Icons: [link] and gnome-colors

If you use gnome global menu to get rid of the menubars you can open bars.rc and replace toolbar.png with menubar.png to make it look better.

Another example screenshot: ;)


- Nautilus fixes for Gnome 2.30

- Made som better looking standard panel buttons.
- Cleaned up some old stuff in the files.

Great theme. AWN can definitely look like that with 3d mode, expanded, proper gradient colours, no border or highlight colours and the token icons for the launchers.

You rock man, great theme!

Anyone knows how to render font like that?

Would love to have that font set in this gtk.

It's the default font rendering in Ubuntu, sub-pixel set to slight in desktop preferences. (Also, font used is Trebuchet MS.)

It looks really sexy! Sexier or as sexy as Snow Leopard

If I get a new computer, if I had the knowledge to install this, I'll do it with no hesitation.

Yes, I love minimalistic designs.

Hi my friend, a query, as I can leave with regular fonts global gnome menu comes up on the fonts in bold?

Le dejo una captura de pantalla = [link]

Remove the part below # The following lines make panel-menu-applet, slab-main-menu and gimmie applet's text bold. The radius value sets the roundness value of the selected menu-item. in the gtkrc file.

Thank you very much for the reply, remove that part and now is the text of the regular fonts. thanks again. :)

this is nearly the most awesome theme I have ever seen! maybe I will change to linux in the near future because of that awesomeness of design. is it important to choose a special distribution or am I on the safe side with ubuntu?

And you released it as Toidi :D nice job. That mockup would do an awesome userstyle too. One my favorites for sure :D
