I'm taking a stab at it. You can view my progress at here. Right now it's at an alpha stage. Just a quick question. The gnome shell version of Orta has some translucent dark glass aspects to it the dialogs, but gtk2 Orta seems very bright white backgrounds. On my system the top panel is black in gnome shell, but the images of Orta show the panel to be a bright white. Which do you prefer? I'm not sure if the difference that I see in gnome shell vs the original version of Orta is an artifact of my system or if it's a change in Orta's design.roger64 wrote:I have a wish...
The very successful Orta theme has just been released for Gnome Shell (and Unity). It had been a full year my favorite with Gnome2 and, of course, I'd wish to see it landing in Cinnamon.

It seems somebody else than the original (Skies of Azel) author did this. Recommended installation using Gnome-tweak-tool.
EDIT: Turns out my system wasn't using Orta for gnome-shell theme even though I used the gnome-tweak-tool to change the theme. I had to use the dconf editor. Now I see exactly what is happening with the gnome-shell port. It makes a lot more sense now.
