Linux Mint 10 LXDE Theming Proposal

Postby canci » Mon Dec 06, 2010 10:03 am

.

Hello! :)

I made a theming proposal for the upcoming Linux Mint 10 LXDE edition. It is supposed to mimic the new Linux Mint X theme
as much as possible. I mainly used work already there in Linux Mint, but had to make an Openbox theme.


Wallpaper: I think the standard wallpaper is really cool, but makes me a little bit depressed, so I took kampongboy92's wallpaper.
It's available as one of the default wallpapers.

GTK and icon themes are the ones from Linux Mint 10 Gnome -- Mint-X .

Openbox theme: Mint-X-Openbox (which I basically modified from john007's great Unified theme.) Consider my work to be GPL.

Fonts are all Ubuntu size 9, with the active window title bar text bold.


Screenshots:

I have tried as much as I could to make Openbox's menus and OSD look like Mint X:

I would appreciate your feedback. Thank you :)

Very cool man,

you should verify if Firefox is ok with GTK+ theme. In Mint LXDE 9 I've got problems :

Wallpaper is perfect, overall looking clean!

@yonatan: Tnx for the feedback! I also think kampongboy did a great work with the wallpaper.
As for the theme, the old theme you are showing (Shiki-Wise) is not used in Mint 10, and I think
we should use the new one that is in Mint 10 Gnome (Mint-X). It looks more modern and much cleaner.
Also, I don't have that glitch on Firefox.

Great work, canci! Really great. New menus look brilliant. In my opinion Mint-team should take some of your ideas `bout theming and menus as a part of it. Well, let`s see what guys will offer (if LXDE #10 will ever come out).
P.S. Oh - Happy new year, bro!

Thanks. Happy New Year! :) I don't see a reason why the LXDE version shouldn't come out. Of course, all the spin offs were always a bit late, but that's to be expected, as I am sure that not many users actually work on LXDE, Fluxbox and Xfce.

Last I knew, Kendall was the Maintainer for LXDE and Fluxbox. Has Merlwiz taken over those as well?

I know Kendall has done a lot with Peppermint OS and Peppermint Ice. He's probably just building it up to be the next best.

Thanks All,
Dave

I honestly wouldn't know. Just wanted to contribute with a theme...

canci.
I really preferred your theme submission for Debian Squeeze. I still find it odd that SpaceFun won out, but that theme is not that bad after a while. It grows on you. :wink:

Tnx! :) SpaceFun's wallpaper isn't bad with Shiki Brave and gnome brave icons, or Faenza Cupertino.

I am running SpaceFun with Clearlooks and the GNOME-Brave icons. Surprisingly, all those blues look pretty darn good together.

On my best days I'm sub par when it comes to theming anything. Thanks for the contribution. :wink:

No problem. :) I'm ambivalent towards theming. Sometimes I don't care, but sometimes a certain colour just freaks me out and I have to change the theme. It's odd...

Yeah, I actually saw this theme there today (along with the SolusOS one). I've downloaded both and they look pretty nice (although I don't have the gtk theme b/c I'm not using true mint right now).
