Keep up the good work.

Already got two cinnamon themes up there (the steampunk one I'll be redoing or just make a whole new one) and I got quite a few out there already at samriggs.deviantart.com plus there tons of folks themeing out there already which is a great thing the more the merrier, gives everyone choices and a lot of great stuff comes out of a lot of folks creating themes,I also do my android stuff which keeps me too busy, I just take breaks with it by making mint stuff lol which I'm doing now.
Plus Mint has a great team already with a lot more knowledge and know how then I got :)
But I'll be creating more themes, I'll be making one for the steampunk blimp city mdm one I just did when I get some time.
You should make more, your a great artist and I know you caan make some great themes including the metacity and xfce frames as well.
Clem just got me hooked with the new mdm stuff, I can finally move stuff around on the screen for once :lol:

:lol: I've seen that MDM thread an I think the themes you are posting are great :D But still one more thing I thought of making the solid parts resize automatically when I add new applets to the panel. Still don't know how I'm supposed to do that. But what you think? And if you get time can you please think of it and reply me tomorrow cause I gotta have some sleep now :D :D good night :D

Sleep whats that :lol: progammers live on coffee and tv as background noise :shock:
hmm I will have to think about that one look in the panel part of the css and see if their is a left, middle, right section that might be it, its 5 am here right now and I've been up all night playing with css animations again, by the way I figured out how to animate a spriraling galaxy on an angle with a perspective look, (great for that plymouth theme you made which you can make a mdm animated one hint hint lol) with the code I came up with tonight you can animate that loading circle on an angle like you got in the image.
I was fooling around with css 3d all night and thought why not try what I first thought would work skew it and rotate it :lol: nice and simple and it works good, no 3d needed only 2d and it looks 3d.
You can check out the code here viewtopic.php?f=148&t=128396
just make a image same hieght and width shove it in the folder put the code in and check it out.
For the panel stuff of your theme you might have to make one svg for the left and one for the right side then figure out if it has a place to put it as a background-image and stretch it just for that part, if it does it should only stretch it as far as the menu part is and the right side menu add to panel stuff is but it should definetly be in the panel section somewhere if it is allowable, all depends but add to panel section on the right does move stuff from the right same as add to panel on left side shoves it all in one area also, I'm jabbering on here, time to go to bed lol ya get what I mean hopefully :lol:
panel right and left lol
Night all

Should get a hold of rvc-2011 for that one, it's rvc-2011 theme, and by the looks of he probably would know how to do it. The panle you already know how to do, you got it on the one you have, the rest just has to be updated, all the panel is is changing the panle image to yours and changing that one line of panel code, the rest just needs to updated to whatever is different (I don't know because I never checked out the old version before and would have to go through it to find out, but I would get in touch with rvc-2011 about it.
