XpGnome 1.0

Make Linux Look like Windows XP
XpGnome is a script that will make you GNOME desktop look like Windows XP.

XpGnome changes: Icons, GTK, Metacity, Splash, GDM Theme, Mouse Cursor, Panel Background, Desktop Background, Visible Desktop Icons, Nautilus Tree View, Toolbar to Icons only. Deletes all GNOME Panels and adds a new one at bottom with Start Menu, Show Desktop, Window Switcher, Notification Area, Volume Control and Clock.


Just download the tar.gz file, Right-click it and select "Extract Here", then run the "InstallXpGnome.sh" by double-clicking it and choosing "Run"!

Wanna revert back? No problem! Just run the Restore_Settings.sh script in the restore folder.

Why? - Why not? I don't use this. I don't recommend it, either! I actually made the script as a programming exercise. And people want to use it...
How'd you make this? None of the theme items are mine - I got everything off of gnome-look.org. I just wrote a script to simplify the install process.
OpenOffice Menus are White! - I've changed the theme to Luna, so the regular XP theme will work.
Will you make an uninstaller? Yeah - I did - Merry Christmas!
What about theming XP to look like Ubuntu? See http://pc-hacks.blogspot.com/2007/10/make-up-over-your-windows-look-like.html
I don't see the START button! This happens. I don't know why. Run the script again, it should appear.
