Note: First Your gtk3 theme won`t work in ubuntu 14.04 or 13.10 or even 13.04 . Test it and you will see.
13.04 http://s7.directupload.net/images/140320/dslb5urq.png

My own theme for 13.04 and 13.10 ( 14.04 runs too)
http://www.directupload.net/file/d/3567/f7fmfqft_png.htm

Second the theme is an optimized fork of the Win2-7 Remix right 1?. Thx for optimizing the code btw.

hi,
try my unkownsystem theme ( might fix some thinks). Could be beter for gtk 3.10.
It might be better on ubuntu. Menubars doesn't exist and the metacity theme borderes are disabled. How could it look good ???. Complain to the program creators (e.g from nautilus etc.)

GTK3 Themes by sinner59 34 comments

Hi,
i unintendially made a theme really close to yours. Can I copy your tab section of the theme ??. My goal is to make an win8 and win7 looking theme that is 100% compatible to ambiance.

You could also look at my cinnamon hack. It's only for the panel placement but that would already change a lot. I'm planning for XFCE and gnome-fallbyk support too.

Perhaps we don't need to create the complete same theme twice =).

Win2-7 Pack

Full Icon Themes by juandejesuss 1742 comments

Hi,NO !It doesn't seem like it's supported. Google for win2-7 Remix. Ambiancew7 or WIn7 from noobslab won`t work either. Steam os uses Gnome 3.4 which isn't supported by the pack, and it is old software if you compare it with ubuntu or fedora. Don't worry gnome3.4 is stable and has more design options than gtk3.6- . The win2-7 pack only supports gtk2 and gnome 2, no gnome Shell sorry. Perhaps Cinnamon 1.6 ould work better. Regards bluedxca93 - Feb 11 2014
Hi,Have done an basic aero theme: http://www.noobslab.com/2013/11/just-moved-from-windows-linux-can-wear.html . Earlier versions are posted as ambiance w7 google for it. Has cinnamon theme too.It does contain 2 litlle css errors, but do't worry i will fix it soon and they are only optical. The really unkown system doesn't really have an aero style, but of course you could install win7/Ambiancew7 without problems. But that wasn`t the goal of this theme. Sometimes the style of an operating system may decrease a litlle with the following system.The german langue with others as well will perhaps be supported in future. I will search for an solution. One way would be to patch the applet, another to patch the cinnamon .po/mo langue files wich is more unstable.regards bluedxca93 - Feb 10 2014
Hi,this isn`t an fault of the apllet but of cinnamon version. I 'd to try 2 repositories before one worked well. But it does work. Are you on github ?? Then you could ask the devellopper of this applet which version to install !. Did the window-list applet and the patch/hack work ??Post plese your cinnamon version number. Cinnamon 2.0.9 didn't work and 2.0.14 did. i used an daily/"unstable" ppa.sry for my bad english I'm german and my prefered second language is french.regards bluedxca93. - Feb 10 2014
Hi,
used applets:
window-list: http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/16
windows 7 style-menu -2.0 : http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/78 OR
Stark Menu 2.0.14- : fetch it from github

Cinnamon 2.0 - 2.0.14 maybe unsopported, no idea what ..

Firefox use theme Office 2010 Aero -/ works well on newer gtk2/ (persona/theme/css) ?? firefox versions and even on firefox FIREFOX 29.0 gtk3 nightly.

Icons are posted on:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/icons
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install win-icons

Took me some time to update the whole icon pack to gtk3 compatibility. You might be interested to "add" the places folder if you run much KDE PROGRAMS. Simply merge the filesystem and devices folder into it and change the theme settings file a bit. Are yoiu able to send me some scrrenshot of the well "unknown OS". Some icons have changed from 7 to 8 or am i wrong ?


Hack for 2.0.14 (to make it look as in my screenshot ( "fix" "Start/Stark"Menu deplacement )
on earlier versions like 1.7.4 there was also something to do with the bottom left edge part of the js. Have this patch safed on my harddisk to.


/usr/share/cinnamon/js/ui/boxpointer.js

// Now align and position the pointing axis, making sure
// it fits on screen
switch (this._arrowSide) {
case St.Side.TOP:
case St.Side.BOTTOM:
resX = sourceCenterX - (halfMargin + (natWidth - margin) * alignment);

resX = Math.max(resX, monitor.x + 1);
resX = Math.min(resX, monitor.x + monitor.width - (1 + natWidth));
this.setArrowOrigin(sourceCenterX - resX);
break;

case St.Side.LEFT:
case St.Side.RIGHT:
resY = sourceCenterY - (halfMargin + (natHeight - margin) * alignment);

resY = Math.max(resY, monitor.y + 1);
resY = Math.min(resY, monitor.y + monitor.height - (1 + natHeight));

this.setArrowOrigin(sourceCenterY - resY);
break;
}

The problem is that my UMTS wireless network-connection has an bandwith limit per month.

So i can`t build one x64 FOR FREE ( Because i don't have the possibility to download 1,2 GB just for one debian/ubuntu Package!).


BUT I can send you the source folder which should compile fine. And i can send you some instructions how to build it as well.

Your question is good, perhaps someone will build one in the nearest future. I've send the code patch to launchpad. - Nov 06 2013

Are you interested in an file-roller version too ???. have already patched this program -/ However theiscode is still not tested in unity, but schould work.
I Could post the sources and diffs in the internet.

It is not intelligent work , but you have to work with an simple text editors like meld and gedit. I know how to write gtk3 themes and i can understand where the menubar code is located. That is sufficent for patching them. - Oct 22 2013

yes thats what i meant. Seeing your screenshots it would be good to insert a spacer in org>gnome>desktop>wm>preferences button-layout preference. You could youse dconf-editor for that.

With cinnamon you could create a closer win7-look as you can see in my screens. But unity and cinnamon conflict a bit 'cause of the different desktop-file managers nemo and nautilus.
So your configuration is a clever compromise between stability and win7 look. - Jun 01 2013

I've also created an livecd, which will be released in few weeks (see my two sourceforge net pages/projects).

Win 7 is the version before win 8.If the win 7 design is to a certain degree compatible with gtk3, the win 8 "gui" schould be too

I'm sure that some conky and screenlets scripts could emulate parts of the the very unintuitive metro ui.

If you need help to write the tickboxes or something else for the gtk3 (wion8 like) theme,please send me a message. I will try to help you then.

First of all, WIN7 PACK IS NOT UNDER DEVELLOPMENT so bugs won't be fixed.


You can copy and extract the theme files to /usr/share/themes and /usr/share/icons. After that you could set it as the default theme for the chrooted environment.Then create a gtk config file inside your chroot environment [For help launch pcmanfm when gnome-settings-daemon is disabled].

Are you creating a live cd or rescuing an installed system or something else ? - Mar 21 2013

Your icon theme looks a lot like win 95.

Win2-7 Pack

Full Icon Themes by juandejesuss 1742 comments

THE WIN2-7 PACK IS NOT UNDER DEVELOPPMENT at the moment.


Avant window navigator is a usable replacement for the gnome-panel (gtk2).This program doesn't conflict with gnome 3 sessions and you could run dockbarx and gnomenu inside it, without MATE components.That solution depends on old python and gtk2 components but not on the most gnome 2 parts.It would be about ~90 MB but not more. And perhaps an aditional ram usage of ~75 MB ( not much if you have 3 GB Ram) but less ram usage and faster than unity.(tested in qemu)

Usable themes are :
Ambiance w7 ( gnome-look.org ) blue 7 theme sourceforge net; Win2-7 Remix ( gnome-look.org);
Costubuntu ( gnome-look.org)
If someone has some more questions or like to write something to write an update for the pack please send me a message.

I don't know yet.
