Efectivamente se ejecuta, pero por consola. Abre una terminal y desde ahí cambia a la carpeta del script. Una vez allí corres:
$ ./install.sh
o
$ bash install.sh

Así verás los pasos uno a uno (sabrás que lo hiciste bien porque te preguntará varias cosas, partiendo por el idioma).

I need more info to be of any help, because there could be a lot of different issues related to your os version. Please reply with your OS and version of it, and as many other data related (lxsession version, any tweak that you had applied, etcetera) as possible. - Nov 15 2014
Mmm...I think that everything should work if you install gtk2-engines-murrine, lxde, compton(you need to add the proper ppa, google that) and slim. Do a "sudo apt-get lxde gtk2-engines-murrine slim compton" and it should be enough. I don't use Ubuntu in my pc since...I don't know, 2011? I tested it a few times, but the truth is I did this theme for Debian, so the only thing that I can actually assure you is that if you install the package "lubuntu-desktop", nothing will work at all. Good luck! - Aug 02 2014
Thank you! I've checked your Windows-ish themes too, and the XP Royale one is definely awesome (I was about to do my own version of it, until I remembered that openbox can't draw rounded borders xD) - Jun 06 2014
I don't remember it, because I did it at January 2014. But I believe it was 13.10, just because I don't have many Ubuntu ISOS at my pc, so I think it would have been easier to find that version then. If you are using any later version, everything should work fine. Just be sure to avoid Lubuntu, and use only Ubuntu with the LXDE package installed.

The github repo were always in this page, at the beginning.
Anyway, I'll check pekwm to see what can I do with it; I'm currently looking for a replace for openbox with support for not only 90 degrees corners at windows.

Well, first of all you are using a non-supported distro. I tested it in Wheezy and everything went wrong. You should do the same as in the RasPi case.
Second, I've just tried the language selection, and for me it works, so I guess the problem is something you are writing wrong (I don't have a clue on what could it be, cos'...well, it's just a "2" .-.). I'm pretty sure that you can install everything by yourself, just sent me an email and I'll will answer it with the needed steps (do that by going to github, the link is at the beginning of this page). - May 25 2014
Install all the dependencies and run the script, everything should work fine (I've not tested it in that specific version thought, but I guess all the dependencies should be satisfied). Just be sure to install "lxde" package, not "lubuntu-desktop" one. - May 25 2014
Well, you obviously didn't read anything at github about this. Do that and comment again, because almost everything you said or asked is already replied there.
Regards! - May 21 2014
Hi! The truth is I don't really know what version of Debian is Raspbian actually. If it is 8 or later, evertything should work just fine. If it isn't...well, all the themes will work fine, but you will have to install and apply them manually. I can guide you to achieve exactly the same results, but you're going to need much more time than if it worked out-of-the-box. It probably works best with Arch on a RasPi, but within a couple of hours you should be able to set it up in Debian or in any other distro you like. Send me an email (you can do that by visiting my git account) for further information. Thanks for your comment, and...please rate positive! :D - May 19 2014
Hi! Sorry for all this time since your question, but apparently some guys don't like my work, and voted down to lock my account (an admin unlock it after I request him to do it). For this reason, I strongly ask you to rate positively if you find this useful, because there are a lot of people just doing the opposite, and this way I won't be able to give support anymore to this pack.
That said, let's fix your installation:
It seems that you have either Lubuntu or Ubuntu with the Lubuntu-desktop package, THIS IS NOT going to work, it doesn't matter what you do to it. You have to uninstall Lubuntu-desktop, and install only the lxde package, because this will give you the standard version, without the lubuntu tweaks.In Lubuntu, maybe this could be fixed by removing the Lubuntu folders at ~/.config/lxsession, but I haven't tested it yet. You'll have to configure your session manager (lightdm by default) to enter the standard lxde-session, not the Lubuntu one. If you want a complete transformation, you could also remove lightdm and install Slim (the only extra step you'll have to do is to tweak or create the .xinitrc file in your home folder, and make sure there is only one line (without quotes): "exec startlxde"), and then run the install.sh script: this will enable some extra options and the login theme, giving you a much more Windows-like look and feel. Good Luck! - May 02 2014

Hi, the links should be working, but I strongly suggest to use the more up-to-date version at GitHub. The link is here: https://github.com/nhermosilla14/WinAte - Apr 22 2014
Yeah, I've been very busy, but if you want to install this, you still can without my own script. The pack itself contains everything you need to have the proper themes working, so the only thing you have todo is to copy the openbox theme and the gtk theme to ~/.themes, and the cursor and icons to ~/.icons
Then, the next step can be done by using the standard GUI tools that Lubuntu provides.
The panel is a bit trickier, but I suppose you can overwrite the config file placed on ~/.config/lxpanel/panels/panel to be the same that I put on the package (it is on the conf folder, inside lxpanel, there's one for each theme). Every config file is in that folder. The backgrounds are in the expected folder, and...I truly can't remember anything else that could work in Lubuntu. If you have any doubt, please send me an email :P - Apr 21 2014

This is the best Win8 pekwm theme I've seen. Since you seem to have released it under GPL, I think I'll be using it on my WinAte theme. - Jun 06 2014

Hi, I'm working to improve my WinAte theme (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/%5BLXDE%5DWinAte+-+Windows+7%2B8+Theme+pack?content=163150) with a new WM, because I currently use Openbox and it really doesn't offer much customization options. I'm really new to Pekwm, but I'm really loving this theme you made. Is it possible to get hover and press buttons efects? Thanks, and...great job! - May 25 2014

Trying to make software do things it isn't meant to do is what made GNU/Linux possible. There wouldn't be Openbox at all if people had though the way you do. There isn't a "pure" GNU/Linux appearance. If you think so, you don't know anything about history nor software. You should be using Windows. - Feb 01 2014
I really hate the way some people just say something isn't good. Is it too difficult to suggest improvements? I really want to do a better job, but you aren't doing anything but annoy me. - Jan 31 2014
