Lithium 1.1

Semi-dark theme for GNOME
Lithium - Lithium GTK theme
  2 Screenshots
The Lithium theme includes a GTK (Based on New Wave), a Metacity theme (Based on Nootoo), an Emerald theme (based on Muin2) and the Basic5 ttf font that is what you see on display in the screenshots here.

The Metacity theme is not quite the same as the Emerald one, most notably the corners are rounded and the buttons are quite different.

About GNOME:

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”.

What's New in This Release:
  • Modified status bar handle
  • New Emerald theme. No longer has 'fake' drop shadows, thus shadows from panel and menus are now possible. The one caveat of this is that resizing windows is a slightly more fiddly, but with alt-drag it's no real issue.
  • Panel background is no longer part of the theme, instead panel backgrounds are provided separately and can be applied as desired; this also fixes the issue of the pixmap not lining up perfectly and panels of different heights (22, 24, 32, 40 and 48 pixels) are provided.
  • White Ubuntu menu icon is provided too, since a few people asked about it last time.
