New Wave is a GTK theme that will give a modern look to your desktop! It makes more clever use of orange than previously (not over-use it) and is mainly color-neutral.
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".
Very simple. Just extract the archive somewhere and drag and drop the file new-wave(xxx) where (xxx) is the version number e.g. 050.
The package also contains emerald themes (the latest is 0.3.4) settings for metacity, compiz-fusion and a file to fix a Firefox bug.To solve this you need to put the file userChrome.css in you profile's directory. For Firefox the path is ~/.mozilla/firefox/(xxxx).default/chrome/ where (xxxx) is some text different over installations. For Thunderbird the procedure should be the same. The Icon theme can be found at the launchpad project page:
This theme is a work in progress and thus it will polish and evolve over time.
