eCO - Experiment by lassekongo83 eCO - Experiment by lassekongo83
IMPORTANT!!! Must read or clowns will eat you!

This is not a very usable theme. It's highly experimental and contains plenty of bugs. You'll probably need some knowledge on how to edit gtkrc-files and image-files if you want it to be more usable on your setup.

First of all you need the gtk engines. gtk2-engines-murrine and gtk2-engines-pixbuf. (If you use the latest ubuntu I think you should have them already. Maybe not pixbuf, check in synaptic just in case.)

IMPORTANT 2!!!
You must install elementary-nautilus ([link]) Or else Nautilus will look like a cheese.

IMPORTANT 3!!!
The toolbar in nautilus may overlay some buttons. If it do, try the other bg image. Open nautilus_tweaks.rc - ctrl+f nautilus-toolbar-bg.png and change that to nautilus-toolbar-bg2.png. If that fails, edit the image to your liking by moving it around. You may also need to change the 289 value in the row below.

STOP ASKING STUPID QUESTIONS ;)
How to make a small 1px glow below your panel. Open your wallpaper in your favourite image editing software and make sure your panel height is set to 24px. Now select the 25th pixel from the top all the way to the right and make that part brighter.

This theme is based on shiki-colors, elementary and elementary-mod. License - GPL.

Wallpaper: [link]
Lady: Misa Campo
Icons: gnome-colors (sudo apt-get install gnome-colors) + [link] for the start-here icon.

Emerald theme is called Zero and not eCO since it was supposed to be for my Divided by zero concept. :p

Great theme!
But could you also release version without elementary-nautilus mod? It's working only on ubuntu and there are bunch of other popular distros :D

Wow! The GTK theme is amazing. If the caption buttons were the same as the mockup, it'd be enough!

Hi, as you know (i wish), i think you are (almost) the only one who make acceptable design works for OS GUIs (at least on deviantart).
I think, i am not alone with this opinion.
That's your's. Put it into your packet and be happy! :)
My opinion won't change if you don't oriantate to my hopes... but i would love to ask you to make designs (or/and ports) for Win7.
We need your professional viewpoint in design. :)
