You must have changed the name of something. There isnt an "aero" directory. However, I did find a few minor errors. I'll be reupping with those fixed.

Thanks, you're right. There are those of us who like Vista's UI but like having UNIX utilities. Thank you for this compilation :)

Then why are you even here commenting on it? If you dont like it, dont use it. There are some of us that like the look and feel of Vista with the usability, portability, and power of Ubuntu.


Best of both worlds. Ubuntu technology with a Vista skin. :-)

So then, this only works on Ubuntu?

It works on any distro that utilizes GNOME.

I personally use Ubuntu, so I know that all parts of this theme work on it.

I'm uploading a new revision in just a bit. I think the script is finally bugged out and I'll be adding one minor edition for the menu.

Just break down and spend the 500 bucks and get yourself a copy of the REAL Vista - from Microsoft! Geeze!

I don't know where you would buy it, but I could buy it for 80% less than that.

when i open the tarball it says in archive manager (file-roller, the default ubuntu thing):

COMMAND LINE OUTPUT:


bzip2: Compressed file ends unexpectedly;
perhaps it is corrupted? *Possible* reason follows.
bzip2: Inappropriate ioctl for device
Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors

Hey, tried your instructions, no go. I like your theme though. The error is-

: not found


Make sure this script is being run by root or sudo


: not found: ot or sudo? [y/n] --->
Y
: bad variable name
: not found:
INSTALL: 156: Syntax error: end of file unexpected (expecting "fi")

-That's it. Tried running in sudo and still didn't work. Like I said, like your theme and would like to use it. Used it before on the last version, still working even, but can't seem to get it in Hardy. Any ideas would be helpful. =)

This theme is very beautiful, is the first that I can install under ubuntu.
I have just one problem: everything is good even icons of applications but the folders are gray (basic).

I have Ubuntu 8.04
