A Tron theme for your GNOME desktop
I've always been torn between geekery and creativity, and have also been in the position where a friend wants to you to 'show me something cool'.
We have cool stuff like XMonad and terminal awesomeness, why not make play on the strength of our more primitive CLI based roots. So I thought I'd have a bash at something command line feeling, but yet hopefully usable. I saw tron and that movie-look implausible Hollywood OS made me think...
I've started trying to implement this as a theme, but would love some help to make it happen. The stylings are simple, but I still could use a hand.
How to install?
· Right click on your desktop and select Change Desktop Background
· Click on the first tab: Theme
· Drag and drop the theme's archive in the Appearance Preferences window.
· If everything is OK, you will receive a confirmation message and you can activate the theme just by clicking on it.
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
