Ya half-left does some fantastic work, so does padster, I actually created one of my first metacity themes from one of padster's that I forked, it was one of the first ones I learnt about tiling properly from, xml was easy but there were a few things I didn't know in the beginning. Then I just create templates from then on in on my own and use them now, I'll be making a template for the shell two once I get it totally finished and tweak all the bugs out of it..
I got an invite tonight from the gnome-shell group to display the steampunk in their group, I guess thats half-left's group, he gives some great tips in that group zero gave me the link when I started making this theme, it helped in a few areas. Thanks for the compliment but honestly it has nothing to do with modesty or anything like that I just enjoy creating stuff and if someone else likes it and can use it then its all good, if not then I just enjoy making them
autocrosser also made a complete set thats a nice theme for the mint, only one strange minor bug in it when you use right click, first time I ever saw that one and don't know what is causing it or I would give him the fix for it, other then that its a great theme. As far as getting the buzz that really doesn't matter to me, if it does it does if it don't it don't its all good
Heres the next project once this one is complete if you want to dig in for another gtk
It'll be called Heavy Metal , color scheme will be black, greys, blues, maybe some touches of orange, red, yellow for burning metal in some parts ( hopefully I can create some sparks when the buttons click on pressed that shouldn't be too tricky ). Scratched metal with bolts maybe some rusty parts, metal bars, metal chains etc etc, also I want to create a dock for each theme, I might see if its possible to recreate the animations with the dock for more different effects if thats possible, right now Im using cairo, so I might have to install avant to see what I can do with that one also, that way it will be a completed set (as well as an icon package, which I keep leaving out for good reason, too many images to create) but I guess it has to be done eventually
Some more fat to chew on
Can't sleep again (I suffer from insomina big time) so back to themeing I go, have a good one
