Yep.
Precisely, I'm afraid there should be some issues to upload such a massive (+/- 100mo) file on this very server.
I firstly uploaded this on 3 different servers but the US justice department closed some ;)
I'll do my best to upload again on fresh new ones.
And believe me, it's worth the time downloading it. I spent plenty o' time crafting this hell of a theme and the result is cool to the eyes of those used to another OS whose name can't be spoken :)
Thanx for your interest anyway.
Stay tuned. I'll provide new links asap... - May 29 2012
I'm glad you enjoyed the theme and very happy you'd find a way to get it to fit your wishes.
Thanx a lot for your interest. - Dec 05 2011

You're welcome.
It's been a while since I involved my free time in improving this icon theme,
whilst I'm using it everyday on my computer.
While there are still minor bugs to correct,
this hasn't been such a disturbing thing to me I would've had to rush to correct it.
For the time being, anyway, I think it's pretty enough to be used on a daily basis
without any major inconvenience.
Fixes will be done, sooner or later.
So far, you're welcome to enjoy the theme. - Jun 16 2011
Well.
I'm a bit confused 'cause I thought the people who download this theme are aiming to get a system that look as close as possible to another sadly known one, nop?
That's the purpose of this whole thing.
So I'm sorry not get the point when it comes to your request for that matter the goal is to achieve a lookalike as sharp as can be.
Shifting this icon will for sure be more confortable to you, this I can perfectly understand, considering anybody has the freedom to choose the apperance of his OS.
However, it'll just be a step back as far as I'm concerned, the purpose being what it is. I hope you get the idea :)
That being said, you can easily change this icon you dislike, be it in the icon set itself before you install it or once it's upon your system.
There are plenty ways to do so, and on that road to theming (yep, change one or two icons is the first step in theming), google and linux sites are your friends.
So I sincerely hope you won't get mad at me not satisfying this wish, but I'm sure, if you've been clever enough to pass by and not have yell and bark at me for this heresy I'm building, I am rather confident you'll chill out and understand my considerations.
Thanx again for your interest, your involvment and your words.
- Apr 08 2011
I totally agree :)
Thank you for your kind words and for your interest. - Apr 07 2011
You're welcome.
Thanx a lot for you interest :) - Apr 07 2011
The dogs bark but the caravan keeps on moving they say, nop? :)
Thanx for your kind comments and your appreciation.
An updated version is on its way.
Stay tuned and don't forget to pass by from time to time.
You sure won't be disappointed if, so far, you've liked what you've seen... - Feb 25 2011
Hi there, and thanx a lot for your involvement :)

So, regarding the 64x64 icons, I, in the 1st place, did incorporate them, but, finally changed my mind.
Why would you ask? :)
Because actually this theme was growing bigger and bigger so I chose not to incorporate this size, conforted in my decision by a few things.
Firstly, the sosoft system is being extremely poor on this icon size (yep, that's for real, 5% of all the whole set, more or less).
So it was going to take forever to build from scratch (even with our beloved Gimp) each and every icon this 64 size.
Secondly, resizing bigger ones, (while vastly done by loads of theme makers), has never satisfied me. It looks blurry and is not as clear as I like an icon to be.
So I just let the file explorer do its job, and it does it pretty well. Mostly, on my system, the 256 ones are used to fill the gaps. Not that clear, but that's ok to me,
spending most of my time in 16x16 as previously said in my introduction speach.

You are right by the bugs you noticed. As said, the set is a work in progress, and there's still plenty to do.
Mimetypes are some kind of a nightmare cause they are so many, and lots of apps and/or places have to be uniformized through the whole set of sizes...
But being enthusiast, I guess I'm willing to do the work. Just a matter of time.

And if some more positive critics like yours are posted, I guess it'll be a cool hobby to spend time on.

Thanx for your interest.
Stay tuned.
I'll update this icon theme asap! - Jan 22 2011
Thanx a lot :)
It's been corrected right now.
Thank you for the answer. - Jan 13 2011
Nice troll - Jan 12 2011
I totally agree. But this system we're living in has grown strong through centuries and is now so harsh it's not gonna soften on so juicy matters that are the incomings linked to technology. Man, they are decoding the human genoma and taking commercial licences upon their "discoveries", so you can imagine how far they would go to protect their precious bit codes...
That's a pity and I'm kind of pessimistic when it comes to this :( - Jan 12 2011
I'm using a firefox plugin called Linkification.
That explain the mistake. It underlines and makes clickable any url sentence, within the text itself and even while typing. That's the reason why.
So, what am I to do exactly - a step by step would be nice 'cause I don't get the point. Truly. Thanx for your comment :) - Jan 12 2011
You are, unfortunately, right 'bout this.
But, so far, I don't remember that any trial has ever been engaged by the "Big Company" against anyone using their "look".
Just as there are plenty of Apple themes & icons all around (and up on this very site) I came across plenty of windows lookalikes since I've been using linux,
and it's been a while :)
My little speach was more of an introduction and kind of a "basta" attitude, 'cause we can't definitely do whatever we'd love to with what we, anyway, bought, be it wanted or not, in the first place.
I came to think, not being sued by anybody, neither I nor the ones that crafted windows 7 lookalikes for gnome - and believe me, they have grown big now - that the guys in charge (if any) relaxing before their desks have to think it's some sort of free advertising for 'em.
Being copied is kind of cool don't you think. :)
But in fact, I think there is just nobody to give a dam' 'bout the fact that three or four open source lovers got to use graphical parts of their beloved system, if you see my point.
While surfing, I can see and hear a lot of things, but so far, I never noticed anything that would sound like a threat growing strong to fight back the evil guys that dared to rip icons from this bl..dy OS. Nop sir.
The only ones to react are amongst us already.
We are never so badly treated than by those very ones we know well they say.
And yep. The only folks that came to react were linux users. And for that matter that, obviously, using this system, they are the only ones to come to know a lokalike has been done.
For the vast majority of computer users are surfing with IE on an OS named .......... "Doors"? Oops, my bad :)
So. Voilà.
If I ever get a law injonction, believe me, I'll remove this. 'till then, anybody who has a w. licence has - according to me - the right to use icons he has on his own computer.
And when it comes to the others, well, you know who you are, you linux users, feel free to use it too.
The windows looking like themes, for gnome or for kde, and their respective icons themes are plenty, and kind of funny fact, have incredible downloading amounts; Very strange indeed, don't you think? - Jan 12 2011

Hi there,
I'm a bit confused by what's your problem.
But from what I understand this sounds like a dock issue or something display related...
Have your properly configured your desktop? We are in a xfce section, and so far, I've never
tried this theme with this main graphical manager, keeping the main thing under Gnome.
So this might probably have some kind of connection to this display manager.
Moreover, and unfortunately for you I'm afraid,, I moved to Kde ages ago when it grown up to the 4.5 branch...
But all the feed back I had regarding this theme under gnome was pretty ok so I guess, again, your problem is xfce/display manager related.
Thanx for your interest anyway.
I wish you the best to fix this issue.
And if you manage to, be kind enough to share your how to with linux fellas :) - May 28 2012
Well.

Firstly, I'm very impressed by the fact you're already running a distro that will (I supposed so 'till now) be realeased in april of 2010.
Anyway, cool for you if you're one of the lucky few that have the chance to test it ages before its official release.

Second, I'm sorry to tell you that it isn't a metacity theme.
In order to get full transparency support, we have to use 3D and so Compiz, which usually fits well with Emerald.

And that's precisely the point pal, I'm using Emerald as a window manager and decorator.

If it isn't installed by default, just open Synaptic and search Emerald, then fusion-icon. Install both of them, then once you're done, go to your menu, Administration and click Compiz-Fusion-Icon.

A blue square icon (regular one until you've themed your icon set) will appear to the right bottom of your panel bar. Right click on it and run Emerald Theme Manager. Once the window of Emerald Theme Manager is open, click on Import.
You'll then have the choice to navigate through your files to the folder where you saved the downloaded "xxx.emerald" themes you'll have had previously got on gnomelook, compiz and/or beryl section.


I use "Who.needs.Win7" or so called (I guess I explained it in my theme presentation and gave a link to the thread it's been posted on), but any vista/7 lookalike will do the trick as long as you adjust it in emerald edition and configuration window.

That's all folk.
Enjoy and thanx a lot for your comment. - Nov 30 2009
Well, well, well !!!

I can see clearly now.

To get the transparency effect, I, indeed, have had to cheat with the gtkrc and panel.rc files.
Maybe you know, the only way to get an information not loaded with the theme you 're using is to place a "#" in front of the line you want to avoid.
Why "#" instead of simply removing the line = because removing the line directly drive the system to crash or similar, anyway, it becomes everything but cool.

So.

In the first place, if you remove the "#" in the lines 7 and 8 of the panel.rc text file in the theme folder, you'll notice that the panel bar transparency will not be there anymore.
So. So far, that's the only way I found to get the transparency without screwing the whole theme.

Furthermore, and this is very strange, it appears once you reboot, that your display manager can't find pictures in the theme that are actually there, obviously:
e.g. : Handles/handle-v.png / Handles/handle-h.png. The only one I'm not sure about is Panel/panelbutton.png, because I posted this theme months ago and am I now working on its sequel.
I don't have this exact ans same configuration anymore.
But, you can try to rename one of the panelbutton(1) or (2) or (3).png into panelbutton.png and see what happened. That's, so far, the best I can do from here.

Of course, before beeing able to modify those text files that are gtkrc and/or panel.rc inside the theme folder, you have to get yourself the rights to do so.
I do a simple trick : open a terminal, then :
sudo chmod 777 -R /home/share/themes/Win7.Basic.02

Actually, I've been very surprised to see the theme being installed there.
Mine is installed in the folder /home/myname/.themes/Win7.Basic.02
And that's maybe the path yours should have been too, nop?

If none of the previous tricks work, why not removing totally the theme from /usr/share/theme and installl it, manually, in the proper /home/yourname/.themes folder.
To do so : exctract the "tar.gz" archive on your desktop, then :
sudo copy -R /home/yourname/Desktop/Win7.Basic.02 /home/yourname/.themes/
sudo chmod 777 -R /home/yourname/.themes/Win7.Basic.02

and see what's happened.

And, for the end, I noticed you're using this tool to get the panel bar looking like Windows 7, each application icon beeing glowed by a cloudy square. Don't you think this could have harm your installatiion.
Furthermore, which version are you using.
I build my version upon Linux Mint 7, i.e Ubuntu Jaunty Jackalop. I hope you're not on Karmic, otherwise this could explain a lot.

Tell me what my explainations did.
Thanx. - Nov 08 2009
Are you using a compositing application and have you turned on your 3D video card graphical abilities.
Cause if you didn't, never any theme built upon those needed capacities will ever work :)

Install compiz (the one for Gnome, using Synaptic - gnome applications manager - if you're running an Ubuntu flavored distro)
Then,
Install Emerald (same way)
Then,
Install fusion-icon (it'll be very helpful to check whether or not your display is managed by compiz (what we want) or Metacity (the default windows decorations manager - without any transparency ability!)
Then,
Turn on your 3D.
It depends on the hardware your computer is based on.
Ati or Nvidia or onboard graphics chipsets for Intel or whatever, read carefully the result of the command line :
lshw -C display

According to your hardware, install proprietary drivers using the Proprietary Driver Manager Tool in your Control Center.

Reboot if you've installed anything.
3D should be activate then.

If it doesn't - then google for some info and learn a bit 'bout 3D and Compiz. I can't teach you cause it's so heavy headaches are to be gain in the end :)

Then read again, and carefully, the lines I wrote introducing my theme, at the very beginig of the post, 1st page.
I tried to give a how to so you'd get the appearance you're after.

Would you be kind enough to tell me the result of all your travels in the countries of open source software.
I hope I'd be of any help.

Thanx for using the theme, or, so far, trying to :)
- Nov 07 2009
Sorry to hear 'bout your nvidia issues. But, I as well use an nvidia based config and so far haven't had any kind of problem regarding the hardware!!!
I'm sorry you're having trouble, but it appears you're the first experiencing hardware related troubles.
And my skills there are rather limited not to say inexistant.
But, I noticed, long ago in a far far far away galaxy, that some people were having issues with their gnome apps looking ugly even with theme and decorations turned on.
Maybe this could be of some help :

There’s a simple and very quick way to set root applications so that they ALWAYS look as your normal applications, regardless the theme you are using. Just open a terminal and run:

sudo ln -s /home/<insert your username here>/.themes /root/.themes
sudo ln -s /home/<insert your username here>/.icons /root/.icons
sudo ln -s /home/<insert your username here>/.fonts /root/.fonts


You're done. In some cases, this changed dramatically the look of apps like synaptic and/or bad looking root apps.

So, Now!
When it comes to New Wave and New Wave dark. I haven't try those themes and don't know how to solve your problem. Anyway, once again, it appears you're the only one encountering those bugs.
Why not trying removing and install them again, taking care, once you remove 'em from the display and appearance manager to actually remove their folders, physically, in their own repository, i.e. ./themes.
That may fix the issue.
Just tell me ;-)

And sorry if it took time to get an answer, but I have a work in my real life that can sometimes and for long periods be extremely demanding :)
Don't you???

Cheers.
And thank you for your comment and the use of my theme.

Let me know if by chance I have been of any help.

Thanx a lot for the trick.
Anyway, I choose to use another theme than the default one and this bug is not a concern to me anymore.
There are plenty of good themes giving FF the look of IE8 - I chose to use the "Vista-aero" but "MyFirefox" is rather cool too.

So. Many thanx for your welcome workaround.
It'll be very helpful for those who wish to stand to the default theme or all buggy ones when it comes to display.

Thanx for your interest :) - Oct 06 2009
An avarage workaround can be reached with the use of "Gnome.Color.Chooser".
This app will let you change the color of the text in your menu bar.
That's, so far, the easier way to do the trick, according to the fact none of us is a program writer and analyst ;-)

These bugs are not related to the theme itself but are known bugs from the 2 apps you're having trouble with.
Regarding Ooo, there are workarounds to correct this issue. Just google a bit and you'll find a how to ;-)
Regarding Firefox, why don't try another theme, that's precisely what I did.
There are plenty o'them on their site.

I've just refresh it, and it now directly gets you to the former thread on gnome.look where I first posted the icon theme.
Enjoy! - Sep 24 2009
It appears from time to time the gnome appearance manager displays such a message.
But you may have noticed it doensn't have any impact on the theme itself.
As long as the theme is well displayed, who cares.
Furthermore, and to be honest, I have no clue what this message is about. I've been used to see it from time to time while trying other gtk2x themes, but solely when it comes to clearlooks engines or so, it does not impact the look of this very theme. So... :) - Sep 24 2009
Yep. You owe me ;-)
Copy and paste is SUCH a hard work, let's complain in choir ........ :) - Sep 21 2009
Have you read the comment introducing this theme, hum???
I don't think so.
If you always act in a hurry, I'm afraid you'll end messing up your whole distro one of these days.
So, please, read carefully when somebody's taking time and give you good advises, it'd be kind :)

So, as written at the very beginning of the post :

"I tried then to give the panel the transparency there is in the sosoft OS :)
I guess I find a way to do the trick.

So :

- 1 ) firstly, install the gtk theme I have managed to asemble, a few changes have I done :
they'll be more obvious at the end of the "to do" affair, cause without transparency it just looks blahhh.

- 2 ) when you're done with the gtk theme install,
use the panel.bg.png I provided inside the gtk files as a picture for the panel :
Just right click on the panel, then properties, backgroud, background picture,
and select the picture I provided in the main folder of my theme.
The path should probably be : ~/.themes/Win7.Basic.02/gtk-2.0/panel.bg.png."

Thanx for your comment, I'm glad you liked the theme and I'll be pleased you use it.
Enjoy! - Sep 17 2009
A corrected and slightly enhanced version will soon be posted.
A little more time and it will be there.
Thanx for trying this one anyway... :) - Sep 17 2009
Yep!
Happy you like the theme.

I tried your modifications. But can't see any change
Would you be kind enough to tell what does it bring???
Thanx :) - Aug 17 2009
I use Emerald as window theme manager. And compiz has to be used to get the proper effects ok, as transparency for instance.
That's that simple.
See my previous version, v.1.01, (link in the commnents) to get the point about what you're experiencing.
Thanx for trying this theme. - Aug 07 2009
Have you read the instructions regarding the how to get transparent panel bar?

- 1 ) firstly, install the gtk theme I have managed to asemble, a few changes have I done :

When your browser redirect you to the downloading page :
- 1 ) just type the 3 numbers you're asked for, then' it's important, click with your mouse on the text below saying "Télécharger le fichier !".
You're done.

- 2 ) If there's a bug, you're then directed on another page saying : "your checking code seems incorrect"

- 3 ) Then click on the blue underlined "Retour". So you're back to the 1st page. Enter numbers again. Then step 1).

Buggy but free, that's why I used it :) - Aug 07 2009
You're absolutely right 'bout the "forced" icons.
I kept 'em 'cause I build this theme upon another one that was build this way (i.e. with browsing icons given with).
But considering the icon theme I invite you to use is aiming at looking like Win.7, it is right to assume there's no need to let'em in.
I'll change it soon.
Thanx for your comment - Aug 06 2009

@krig

My knowledge regarding the licencing of pieces used for theming is simply equal to zero.
I put this "strictly for private use" 'cause I guess that's the best way to ensure people would understand they can't in no way use this for commercial purpose.
But I am confident in linux open source philosophy and its users to act the good way with this theme.
If I am wrong in my terms, just let me know, I'll be glad to correct what I previously wrote.

Furthermore, I have to insist on what I said in my first post :

"I managed to do this using other people work : so all thanx to the original creators.
I used, mixed and roughly changed :

Gtk.2.x : Linsta, Slickness, Azur, Paladium

Icons : Breathless, ClearlooksOSX, Linsta, Vista-Inspirate, Paladium

Gnomenu of course for the menu

Fonts : Bitstream charter

For the panel look : tricked around and ripped some parts of murrina7 using Gimp

Emerald : WhoNeedsWindows7 by ZeQuark slightly modified.

More or less, everything that's been used here has been found surfing the net, but mostly round here on "Gnome-look" and the great "DeviantArt" site.

So, if I forgot ANYONE who deserves thanx, let me know, I do not endorse the work accomplished here. I just don't have the skills to do so.
Just tried to glue things together.
Nothing more."


@ SpecKtacle

Sorry pal. I just don't get the point. What do you precisely mean???


@everybody 'round here

Thanx for all the thanx :) - Aug 01 2009

Hi Hugo.
Your mod works very fine on my PClinuxOS.
But I have to admit I quickly get into difficulties of use when the transparency is too high, it gets the windows almost unreadable.
However, I like it very much and was wondering if there'll be any chance to have the choice on which part of the windows we'd like to have transparent or not.
For instance, and excuse me to give such an example, the M$ OS windows are only transparent on the top part.
Would there be any workaround to get such choices so it will affect only the chosen part of the window, be it left or right or top or bottom.
Thank you so much anyway for your work.
It's simply excellent. :)
Cheers - Dec 05 2011

Running on PClinuxOS 2010, KDE edition, I've been looking for something like this to unite and standardize my whole appearance within the desktop.
Still these gnome apps tend to glue to their own gnome icons (at least partially), however your app, adding a new tab to the Control Center is obviously a Plus.
Thanx a lot.

Depending on the distro you're using.

When it comes to debian/ubuntu/mint related ones, (as far as I'm concerned, I use Linux Mint),
there are 2 ways to install a theme, be it gtk2x or icons.

1 - ) Use the "Appearance Manager".
You can run it from either your Start menu [System/Preferences/Appearance Manager]
or directly from within your "Control Panel" - Open a terminal and type : gnome-control-center then hit Enter.
Once the window of the appearance manager is open, click on the Install button, show the application the path to the "theme.tar.gz" file.
Click once again.
It should install itself like a charm :), but sometimes it's buggy, especially when the theme is heavy and fat (mine is, I guess).

So,

2 - ) Use the command line.
Download your Icon.theme.tar.gz theme on your desktop. Right click on it and do an "extract here" action. It is now uncompressed on your desktop.
Then, Open a terminal.
Then type this, but without the "" of course :

sudo cp -R /home/"YOUR-NAME-BUDDY-NOT-MINE"/Desktop/"TheGreatIconThemeI'veBeenDreamingOfForAges.tar.gz" /home/"YOUR-NAME-BUDDY-NOT-MINE,Once.Again,Yep!"/.icons/

And for computer sake, pay attention to the quotes.
What is written there is AN EXEMPLE.
You HAVE TO put there YOUR NAME, or whatever name you've used for your computer and distro.

Once the copy's done, give the icon folder you've just put there the rights it need to run properly.

sudo chmod 777 -R /home/"YOUR-NAME-BUDDY-NOT-MINE,Twice.Again,Yep!"/.icons/"TheGreatIconThemeI'veBeenDreamingOfForAges.tar.gz"

Then, once you're done with the copy of the theme in the icon folder,
Go to 1 -).

The icon theme should be a choice in your appearance manager, right in the "Icons" tab.

Here we go.
I'm right now adding a second link on GigaUp.fr.
Enjoy :) - Sep 17 2009
I have had to modify the theme (see changelog), then removed the first one from the provider.
Anyway, the new and updated one is now available.
I'll soon give a second link to let people download this theme, whilst the former one, "gigaup", is still ok.
I've just tried it and it doesn't block the download.
Try again, you'll finally get it.

First, thanx 4 the positive comments and attitude.

Second, yep, that's a first throw and there's still a lot to do before I am plenty satisfied with this huge icon set.

But I have to pay real attention to its size 'cause from the beginning it's getting fatter and fatter I'm afraid it becomes too fat to deal with.

Wondering if .svg for the whole thing should do the trick. I'll try anyway.

And yep, mimetypes have to be adjusted. I putted together things that are not really necessary (at least for linux users) in this folder. Got to correct it more efficiently.

'till the new one shows up, enjoy and comment if any bug appears.
Thanx. - Aug 01 2009
Hi there. :)
Well, if I well understood you point - I've been thinking 'bout it for a long time but I'm afraid (copyright matters appart) the way gtk.2.x is buit just would'nt allow us to modify that far the way the next/previous buttons are put on the panel.
Optionally remove text beside icons (in your appearance manager) is so far the best we can do to achieve the most affordable lookalike . - Aug 01 2009

Very classy and fresh theme.
Too bad the rounded one is no more download-able, I'd like to see what it looks like, sounds very attractive.
A great one for sure.
Thanx. - Aug 04 2009

Le theme "créé" :) : Win.7.basic.01

Les autres sont tous ceux dans lesquels j'ai picoré des éléments et qui m'ont permis d'arriver à ce résultat.
Je les ai indiqué car je ne doute pas que d'autres soient plus compétents que moi et parviendront à faire bien mieux, n'en déplaise aux pisse-vinaigre :) - Jun 10 2009

For something like 5 years now I've been using Linux, in a way or another. I started with Knoppix, beeing a newbie and managed to learn by myself how to deal with this mysterious OS geeks were speaking about.
It's been a long and painful process, though slowly and from time to time reward by pieces of success.
I enventually got to the point I definitively quit the dark side for the light (would say the trolls :) ...)

But, I always kept in mind a big thing to me : if computers are the way they are today, if the digital life is the way you people live it, 10 hours a day surfing the net, speaking on forums for hours, giving you this feeling you're part of
a community, expressing your joys or your HATE, it happened in the 1st place because some glasses wearing guys spent years of they youth sticked upon a screen and created (yes, created) OS you're using everyday.
So, be it M$, Apple, Linux or whatever, nobody can't deny that : if the worl is digitaly connected today, M$ has made a lot for it to be this way.

And, even if their commercial politic, their supremacy, their hegemony is pissing you off, that's a fact you can't deny.

If you can't beat'em, join'em they say.

I managed my best for years now to find my way in between.
As a pro, in my working life, I need M$ for a few apps (money management & a few more shitty things, anyway...). BUT, as soon as I find there were an alternative, I simply jumped into it.
Be it Mandrake, Gentoo, Debian, Fedora, PClinuxOS, Ubuntu and now Mint, I live my leasure digital life on Linux and I am very proud of it, 'cause I learned by myself (beeing a 40 yo guy, it's rather cool I think, nop?)
But furthermore, around me, in my family and with my friends, this ability that Linux offers to be skinable, the way you can make it look like something else, and compiz now, has give me the best chance to spread the good word and
to fight back M$ suppremacy.
Because of this lookalikes (it's been Xp in the 1st place, then Vista), I have convince many friends, and even my 60 yo father in law, plus people I know from work, totally newbies even with M$ so you think when itt comes to Linux (whatever flavor...),
I have convince them to give Linux a try, even if they were so frightened of this "command line" thing.
And due to the fair and growing amount of GUI the creators of this wonderful distros have developped over the years (and I'm sure because they understood the strenght visual has on the terminal user ;-))
the biggest part of those newbies STAYED under Linux and started to LEARN new behaviours, when they've been using another OS for years and god now people are lazy when it comes to change their habits.

So.

Linux can imitate other OS. It's one of its best ability to spread the world and convince newbies it is the best OS they'll ever find. And free of charge btw ;-)
You don't like a lookalike 'cause you're so dumb you can't see it's the best way to convince sceptical people. Who cares you're a fool ???
The people around me they're so happy with those lookalikes, cause they kept some of their habits and gestures and learn, slowly but surely to use another and best OS.
They are so surpised when I tell them to forget about 30% of the CPU beeing eaten away by security apps that have no reason to be with Linux.
No fragmentation, no viruses (I know, plz don't start on this one...), no crucial updates, no crash, no paiement................. but a lot new to learn :)

Then.
If you don't see the point. Who cares? Some do, and they are happy with it. Let's share, whatever the way. TYhe important hing is not the way you people look, it's what you are inside.
And sadly, you appear to be a sad jerk.



Merci Darkseid pour ta prise de position. Et vraiment désolé que tu es eu à essuyer les douceurs de ce triste sire.

Par ailleurs, comme je le dis dans l'intitulé, je n'ai pas vraiment de connaissances sur la meilleure manière d'obtenir les résultats désirés comme la transparence.
Mais ZeQuark y travaille je crois. http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Who+Needs+Windows+7+%3F+(screenshot)?content=105702

Je me suis contenté de trouver les thèmes gtk.2.x les plus susceptibles d'être modifiés pour ressembler à ce que je cherchais, puis j'ai essayé, pièce par pièce,

de remplacer un "panel.png" par un autre, etc, etc...

Ce fut long, et certainement pas la bonne manière de faire, mais je n'en connais pas d'autres, ne m'étant pas plus que ça penché sur le theming

et les capacités graphiques de notre bien-aimé OS. :)

Voilà. Si cela plait à quelques uns, c'est très bien comme ça. Et tant pis pour ceux qui n'y voient que de la copie sans comprendre l'intérêt d'offrir aux plus inexpérimentés d'entre nous

la possibilité de migrer en douceur vers un autre OS avec un nouvel environnement graphique.



J'aimerais bien t'y voir mtax s'il te fallait demain apprendre à conduire à gauche, pédales à ,l'envers; et tout en vivant dans un pays étranger, mais alors vraiment différent du tien, le Japon par exemple.

Je serais curieux de voir combien de temps et combien d'erreurs il te faudrait avant de trouver de nouveaux repères. Et curieux aussi de savoir si tu enverrais bouler ceux qui voudraient t'aider,

d'une manière ou d'une autre, en parlant de temps en temps dans ta langue par exemple, juste pour que par moments, tu ne te sentes pas perdu dans un univers auquel tu ne comprendrais plus rien. - Jun 10 2009
