Majestic Reloaded Suite by cbowman57 Majestic Reloaded Suite by cbowman57
Made some minor progress on Cinnamon theme, but my heart really isn't in it. If anyone would like to complete it to accompany this package, or a separate one, I would appreciate it. Same goes for a Unity theme.

Gtk3 themes requirement:
-GTK3 engine Unico

Gtk2 themes requirement:
- GTK2 engine Murrine
- GTK2 pixbuf engine

Gnome shell theme, including gtk, metacity & biox window button extension.

I modified the Adwaita metacity to better suit dark themes (IMO) & applied the modification to remove the titlebar from maximized windows. (If you want to min/max/unmax from a maximized window use alt+right-click) This modification will probably force people to use the Overview more than they currently do, some people may not like the behavior.

Terminal displayed normal & maximized.

05/11/2011 10:00
Think I've taken care of the gradient blend in the menubar.

05/11/2011 02:00
Adopted a version system that will remain in effect until this is complete.
Adjusted some padding in the gtk-2.0 to more closely match the gtk-2.0

Not sure I can get the two versions much better than this.

05/09/2012 13:00
Widened panel to 1.5em & adjusted the Panel Favorites extension.

05/09/2012 10:00

Thanks, now if more people would try it & give me some feedback. :lol:

Thanks for the :+fav:

That looks awesome, thanks for the screenshot.

Do you like the maximize behavior on the netbook?

Good, glad to hear that. I'm still working on a 1280x1024 monitor so I don't have a way to see how it scales.

perfect, then I made from beta testers ...
tested on a dual screen 5:4 with 2560x2048 resolution and it works great.

That's reassuring. :)

Well I can call the metacity done, the gtk is 99% done I think. Now the next thing is to finish the shell theme, not sure how fast it's going to get done but the look of the desktop isn't likely to change very much more, if at all. I may actually leave the overview & dash pretty much as they are.

I've been restarting the shell 50-100 times between reboots and the desktop hasn't crashed once. That's a good thing. ;)

Thanks, the shell theme is only skin deep at the moment, still a lot to be done but it makes for a decent screenshot & the stuff behind the scenes is pretty much default so it's reliable.

Probably going to take me some time to get this the way I want it.

You're using Unity for the most part these days aren't you? If you are, and feel like adapting this to Unity I'd be happy to add it, but since I don't use or install it anymore I've fallen behind.

If nothing else let me know what you think of the metacity theme.

Don't know if this one will ever get done. :lmao:

I just installed SalusOS RC4 to test it out which runs Gnome2, will have to check it out when I reinstall Ubuntu 12.04 and will give you some feedback. :-)

The maximized window behavior might be a nuisance on gnome2 but would you try the metacity out & see how it acts?

You can just use the metacity with your current gtk if you like the effect but not the color or the rest of the theme.
