Description:

This is a modification of SkiesOfAzel's great theme imetal. I changed the button and made it a little bit gray.

All credits go to SkiesOfAzel.

Also thanks to Cristian Grada for his immx theme. I borrowed some idea from that too.

INSTRUCTION:

There are two gtk themes and four metacity themes in the package.I recommend to use black and white icon theme with imetal mod gray and use a mac like icon theme with imetal mod color as I did in the screen shot.

Please unzip(unzip ***.zip) the download file before installation. Then extact the tar.gz file(tar xfvz imetal\ mod.tar.gz), then copy the theme folder to /home/yourname/.theme/. Or you can use Appearance Preferences(System-Preference-Appearance) to install the theme.


Recommend to use iFoxMetal or Foxdie theme for firefox with Hide Menubar plugin.


I recommend to turn OFF the windows border transparency in compiz fusion. To do it, go to the gnome configuration editor(Sytstem Tools-Configuration Editor or type gconf-editor in terminal). Then modify the opacity value in /apps/gwd/metacity_theme_opacity.


The screeshots are in low quality due the size limit of gnome-look.

A good variation with credit given to the original author.

Skies did great work and his themes are a resource legacy for people learning how to make custom themes.

Nice to see I am not the only one who prefers something that is not murrine engine based.

Thanks. The original work is outstanding. This theme is not finished. I plan to give more minus update if time allowed.

It's nice. Like that, too. But I think iconrc should be turned off as default. The next is the little arrow in the menu. It's good. But if you are over it the arrow is converted in a ugly white one... and I don't mean that the white is ugly. ;)
This on a murrine-engine would be great, too.

cheers

Thanks for the feedback. I will work on that. Something needs a totally redesign.Too bad, I will be super busy next few months. By the way, I just don't like murrine at all personally.So I will stick to pixmap.

it's a great theme, but there's one thing I think it's not quite right, the menu button in metacity, it looks like a square around the button

Thanks. It's great to have some feedback. I don't have any problem about the firefox.Maybe it is just because I am using iceweasel. So there will be a slim chance for me to fix this problem.
