Hi. I've made a new Gnome Shell theme which I would like to contribute to the next Linux Mint version "Lisa". This theme contains some Minty flavor to match the beauty of Linux Mint :)

I really like this theme, it's clean and smooth. I like it better than the slated gnome-shell theme for LM12.

If you want to contribute it to Mint 12, I recommend to send it to root@linuxmint.com as the developer(s) might not notice this topic in time otherwise.

Yay, mintish styles. :)
Finally less slate. (I sometimes wonder why; it's Linux Mint, not Linux Greyish...)

So I emailed the devs at root@linuxmint.com. Am I supposed to wait for reply?

I just uploaded two new versions. Darker dialogs and more minty activities ripple graphics.

It often takes long time till you get a response. Clem, the main developer, told me last week that he had 93 e-mails in his inbox. Please be patient.

Thanks. I will wait (But I'm a little impatient type of person). :D

It's looking good.
One thing I would change though : the progress bars are very hard to notice. I think a light outline around them would be nice.

Progressbar? I don't think there are any progressbars in Gnome Shell.

Btw, I've made some changes to the fonts and mintified the volume slider and so on.

Oops, I meant scrollbars...

Doing so will make scrollbars look out of place and not match the whole look. I think the scrollbar is ok, it becomes opaque with a minty highlight when you hover it. So that should not be a problem.

But if you don't like it and want to change, you can find the code for scrollbars here in the CSS file,

StScrollBar StButton#vhandle

and

StScrollBar StButton#hhandle.

It should be pretty easy to just change the rgba values. The last number is aplha (opacity) and you can increase it. Cheers :)

This theme is excellent Satya, as always. I would like to see this theme as default.

You've got my vote. This shell theme is outstanding.

Well, I received no reply from the devs. I am really very much disappointed and discouraged. ;(

I won't mind if it won't be not included, but I at least expected a small reply...

Now Mint RC will release and there is no chance this theme will be included. My heart is shattered, but all my fellow Mint lovers, the theme is always here for you. And if you like, you can suggest how to improve it.

I wouldn't take it personally. Clem is very busy right now before the release. He is sometimes available on the Linux Mint IRC channels - that might be a better venue for approach right now.
