Newbie question about themeing linux mint

Postby adventelinix » Sun Oct 21, 2012 5:36 pm

So I just made the fulltime switch from windows to linux mint and have been loving it. I also did this on my work computer and itsmeeting my needs splendidly... The only thing I need to know now is there a way that I can skin mlinux mint maya mate too look like windows 7? I work in a office and there fine with me using linux, but I just dont want to b harassed about it... Just easier for everyone if it looks like windows.. I know in ubuntu 10.10 I had a transformation pack that work well... I really dont want to runinto issues and use a older version of linux just to theme it...

If someone would be so kind to help a newb Id be ever so grateful..

I don't know of any windows 7 themes, but what you need are Gnome2 (gtk2) themes and Metacity themes. Believe they would go in /user/share/themes.

GTK2 themes at Deviantart.
Metacity themes at Deviantart.

More at Gnome-look
