it looks a bit old already.

Well, it is an 8 year old theme that hasn't been maintained for years, so that's understandable.

Yeah, I know. What I had in mind was that it would look better exactly the same, but flat without borders.

Idk, I feel like that wouldn't really be the same theme anymore, cause to me the defining features are the subtle gradients and the light-dark borders.

nice bit of style and design
otherwise GNOMESHELL themes are, more often than not, quite unoriginal and boring

Excellent Theme!!
Many thanks for sharing with us.

I would love to swap positions of 'Windows' & 'Applications' to 'Applications' & 'Windows' in Activities overview, since i have no use for the windows function.
Can you please point me to the code (file/line), since i couldn't find it?!

Thank you (:

You can't change it, it's coded into GNOME-Shell, not my theme.
What Linux version are you running anyway, this theme hasn't been updated in quite a while.

I am running GNOME-Shell v3.2.1 (can't remember the original theme name) in ubuntu 11.10 environment.
Thanks for your replay!

Ah, okay, it would still work for 3.2, yes.
Glad you like it :)

by far my favorite theme on shell 3.4 ... any way i can change font size 15 - 25% smaller for titles? that would make it perfect thank you for your work ... one thing i do not like on these themes is the arrow pointing to the title and you boxed it out.

Maybe try in GNOME-Tweak-Tool>Fonts>Text scaling factor.
