Gnome shell 3.6 theme: ArchWay by cbowman57 Gnome shell 3.6 theme: ArchWay by cbowman57
This is a mod to the Boje-Greyscale GTK theme by nale12 nale12.deviantart.com/

The Boje gtk theme is a dependency & must be installed. fav.me/d5o4jp6

The shell theme started as an exercise in design after a fresh Archlinux installation.

I think the theme channels a little bit of the old GnomArch (fav.me/d420jt7).

This is the one I like the most because of the colors - the blue-ish lines, the highlights while scrolling through the drop down menu.I love deviantART!

Yes, was a nice one.  Minimal-3.10 was very similar, without the blues though.

It felt light & quick too.

And I'd like time to do that, and all the other things I don't have time for these days. :)

Feel free to create one from this if you'd like. It's not that difficult, just a little time consuming.

I just might. it works on 3.8 beautifully, except a few missing icons.

< Linux Newbie, that being said. How do you get the "start" menu on the top left? Is it arch only or can you install a package on another distro of linux. Thanks in advanced

Thank you very much. Also just because of your theme I plan on messing with arch linux in the near future....which I noticed has a much higher learning curve than Linux Mint and such.

It appeals to people that like to get deeper into it, but once installed it's like everything else.

I used Mint/Ubuntu/Debian for a long time before I made the switch. Now I'd never think of going back.

Yeah, installed a fresh Arch this morning. Thought I'd see what it would be like to keep it very basic.

Has kind of a default Archbang look to it I think. :)
