MintLiner gtk3 theme is a GTK3.0 (not Gnome shell theme) theme for GNOME 3.
I made this theme inspired by the theme of Minty Freshness(earlier version) LMDE.
This theme contains the metacity theme (not mutter) of Minty Freshness theme. Some parts of the theme have not yet been completed.
With regard to the fact that this theme is based on Adwaita engine, some programs will not take a look of this theme (because it does not include the gtk2 theme part). This is because not all applications are converted to use gtk3 (GIMP 2.6.11, Firefox 4.0b12, ...).
Not yet tested on Ubuntu or Linux Mint, but has been tested on Gnome Live CD (OpenSuse).
Too bad that Linux Mint 11 will not come with GNOME 3. But that's ok. Perhaps the next edition will.
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”.
