iMetal Aqua Krytarik
Metal Aqua theme for GNOME
- Mac4Lin Aqua
- iMetal Leopard
I did a complete overhaul of the Mac4Lin Aqua theme, added some parts of the other mentioned themes and created some on my own.
I also added a slimmed down icon theme to fit the now dark panels, see README for instructions.
Here is a roughly complete list of what I have fixed/changed/added:
- fixed the panels and its buttons, and set them to a slightly transparent black background
- changed the look of selected toolbar buttons
- changed the menu background
- changed the look of selected menuitems
- fixed the combo-/optionbuttons
- created new fitting spinbuttons
- fixed the range sliders
- fixed the progress bars
- fixed the scrollbar arrows
- lowered the statusbar and fixed its look
- changed the tooltips, new style now, and darker
- changed the color in list/tree views (like in Nautilus) to better fit the theme
- disabled all the tweaks, they seem not to be necessary, but do cause a huge amount of errors
- disabled unnecessary settings for the size of icon
- changed the icons to those of the Macbuntu theme, some from other themes, some custom
- changed the window control buttons to those of the iMetal Leopard theme
- changed the geometrics of the title bar a bit
- increased the window borders a bit

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”.
