Finally working on a new theme!

Finally working on a new theme!

I've been inactive for close to two years now, but this is going to change soon. I've been wanting to update Azel's visuals, but unfortunately i've lost the original xcf flies due to hard drive failure... I will still update it with some bug fixes in the near future, but right now i am working on something completely new. It will have influences from Azel, as well as Oxygen and Bespin from the KDE front. I tried using KDE exclusively for a couple of months since i prefer qt over gtk, but i just couldn't get the same workflow that gnome has offered me for the last 3 years. I did appreciate the visuals though, and going back to gnome and gtk

Bye bye windows. . .

Bye bye windows. . .

 I've finally switched to linux, and i am not going back . . . That unfortunately means that i will probably never complete some Opera skins i was working on (mainly a cerebro one) but on the other hand i will probably start porting skins to gnome when i am more familiar with the various skinning engines.

The Orta theme is badass.. nice work.
No mate, THANK YOU for the awesomeness in your themes :D
Hi!!

First of all, thank you very much for all your beautiful themes!!

Secondly, let me ask you a question: are there chances to see a variation of minty freshness without the green shade?

I think that with minty-freshness you almost reach the perfection. Orta is great, but minty is a little bit darker and eye pleasant, more compact and most of all doesn't use pixbuf engine. But green is not for everyone...despite the fact that I like green, I tend to you clear blu or some other more neutral color on my desktops...

Just a question, I obviously do not pretend anything!!

Thanks again!!!
love your work, thanks! i like the picture in the the main window of the orta settings manager! in fact, it is one of my favourite art pictures! is there a wallpaper of this one?
I don't think there is a wallpaper of this exact piece, no. You could search here for relevant art though.
awesome, lots of good stuff, thanks
