Gnome shell is the 13th entry on the drop down box when you add artwork. Hope that helps.

In that case, I would delete the metacity-1 folder from witin the theme folder. Then try again to extract the mtacity-1 folder.

If you still have a problem please let me know. - May 18 2012

What part does not work? Is the grey part of the titlebar not on the left or is it that the buttons are not on the left?

Perhaps it is some other fault. Please can you describe the fault? - May 16 2012

Go to your downloads folder and open the tar.gz file. It should open with your archive manager. You should see three folders. Click on the folder you want (each one is for a different colour) and select extract.

You will be asked where to extract to. You should browse to ~.themes. .themes is a hidden folder in your home folder. When you browse you can right click in your home folder and select show hidden files (then .themes will show up).

I hope this makes sense. If not please ask again. - Mar 03 2012

Ah, I like your thinking. Unfortunately the sidebar gradient also applies to the entries on the sidebar so you get an ugly mass of repeating gradients. I may find a way around it but I'm not there at the moment.

When you say make the sidebar match the file view, do you mean make the two panes the same?

Thanks for your feedback. - Nov 09 2011

Are you able to upload the file to Gnome-Look? I tried your download link and received an error saying "Free users may only download 1 file at a time."

I wanted to check out the theme before voting or commenting. - Dec 17 2010

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 6 comments

Do you mean the menus or menubar? If you mean the menubar, then that is meant to be white.

Maybe that is not to your taste so thank you for your feedback.

If it is the menus then I'm not sure of the fault and hope you can show me a screenshot as mentioned in my comment below. - Nov 02 2010

Ink pool

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 2 comments

The metacity titlebar is different and the window border is different and wider in this theme.

The menubar, toolbar and panel are different. Also, the scrollbars are slighly shiny compared to matt.

All of the remaining elements are the same.

In my themes, I try to keep the pixmap count as low as possible, whilst trying to create something with visual appeal. This does create a limitation for me and that is part of my challenge.

Most of my later themes share many elements but I believe they each have their own look and feel.

I may be biased but I don't believe I could mistake Black velvet with Ink pool. - Mar 13 2010

The only thing I can think of is that your monitor brightness is set much higher than mine. If I set my monitor brightness up and increase the colour temperature, I can lose the contrast between the check box background and the normal background.

From your home folder locate the file .themes\Salinx\gtk-2.0\circ1.png. Open this file with an image editor and make it darker. See if that helps with your contrast.

If you do get chance to try this, please let me know if it works or not.

Thanks. - Jan 16 2010

Hi and thanks for your vote.

What problem are you having with the check and radio boxes? Is it a font colour on background issue or they don't work? - Jan 16 2010

I'm really stuck when it comes to recommending icons and wallpapers.

I love the nuoveXT icon set and never really feel satisfied with any other set, even though there is some seriously professional looking work out there.

As for wallpapers, I'm changing mine all the time. - Jul 20 2009
