A port for windows 7 would be good

Thank you for the information, but that is not really what I meant.
I was just curious whether =Satukoro would be interested to mod this theme using darker colours (not necessarily black, but ones that do no try to peel your eyes off with their brightness).
This is not to say I do not appreciate every single last port =Satukoro made. Hell, I even went so far as to use the Luna port for a while (and the thought of using it in XP never even germinated in the bog of my mind). This is just a sincere-looking plea. [:
And, (getting even cheekier here) have you (=Satukoro) ever thought of porting c10k in any of its variants? I know, it is ancient, but I hold it one of the greatest visual styles ever produced.

:love: An open-hearted Thank You for your great visual styles!

Send me a link to c10k, then I might be able to port it.

I'll see how I can modify Clearlooks and I'll see about some different colors.

Have a look here:

It appears that only one of the visual styles is still accessible, though, and I have not idea weather the authors are reachable.
Anyway, I've uploaded what I have in the lines of c10k below:

I'm on my Ubuntu Partition right now using the clearlooks classic metalicy theme (The classic looks a lot more like this than the original), and this theme is pretty accurate comparing them.

ALSO! To download clearlooks classic, go to this: [link]

Once downloaded, install into theme manager and click customize and select clearlooks classic control options and clearlooks classic windows border.
Icons: [link]

Hope I helped B-)

Fabulous. I always wondered how they do them that bright and get away with it. Yeah, a guess a coloured taskbar and otherwise darker tones would be great. Thank you for the great port!

Just the best Clearlooks port with a gradient I love. Instant :+fav: .

Oh ya, here is a bug, when I right click somewhere, the menu appears, but when I move my mouse over one of the entries in the menu, it highlights that entry the same way it would do in the regular Vista Basic/Aero. Can you fix this and change it to a blue color when I move the mouse over the entry?
Satukoro's avatar
Oh, that's not a bug. I couldn't find it. Although, I do have a resource list that I could look through.
You're really a great artist in design my friend, but they are too classical. What about a much thinner task bar and three invisible buttons at the top right of the windows (when not in use) like the idea in the visual style "Perspective"? :)

I just port 'em, Talk to the original artist if you want permission to change the VS.
Sephiroth121's avatar
Well, he didn't MAKE the visual style. He PORTED it which is what made it into a Windows Vista Visual Style.

looks nice ... great port ;)

Also, where did you get those Gnome Explorer Navigating buttons (I think it's called browseui).
Sephiroth121's avatar
I know, I just found them by searching for tango browserui. Sorry if I wasted your time.
Satukoro's avatar
Nah, my time is never wasted.
I noticed that if you use small icons for the start menu, the "All Programs" button looks messed up.
Satukoro's avatar
It's fixed now, you can re-download.
Thanks for fixing that.
Satukoro's avatar
Thanks for telling me about it =D
Satukoro's avatar
Ahh, I wonder. I'll re-upload in a minute.
