Gnome Shell Themes

Available as/for: -

I finally completed my first theme ever, there are still a few things I'd like to modify but will do in time. I called it ANewLook and it's based off of gnome-shell-theme-ANewStart by *alecive (who has been a big help to me in figuring things out, thx my friend If you want the wallpaper and icons you can get them from the links I have listed below. I learned a lot working on this and hope to do more in the future. Thx again to all the original authors for their creativity.

If anyone has any problems with it let me know and I will try to help if I can. I'm still learning to theme so forgive me if I don't know everything

Hope you like it and please leave a comment thx

First off,

I want to thank all that I listed here, without their knowledge and artistic ability I would have never been inspired to tweak my desktop. It's been a long time in the making, when I started tweaking Gnome Shell I new really nothing about css. I have done some html years ago, but this was all new to me.

I've done a lot searching on the net and asking questions here and there(thx to all that answered them too.

Thanks to all of them for making such beautiful themes, icons and wallpapers. I am not a css programmer just a tech guy who loves Linux and being able to tweak it for my taste. You guys Rock!

I tweaked the gnome-shell-ANewStart theme to my liking. Which by itself is awesome!!.

OS: Arch Linux (installed with ArchBang)

Based off of Theme: gnome-shell-theme-ANewStart by *alecive (Modified a little by me by making the panel smaller added a little more shadow and changed the font to Ubuntu and removed the corner radius. I made the bottom panel to just use the bottom right of the screen (with the help of my friend ~0rAX0 who showed me how to accomplish it thx man!!)

GTK + Theme: Radianceblue_0_66 by ~NanaBuluku (modified the blue to match the wallpaper.)

Icons: AwOken set to 99-15-00 by *alecive

Cairo Dock at the bottom (with AwOken white)

Linux Mint Menu: I modified by removing the Menu text and added an Arch icon.

Wallpaper: By MadeInKobaia

Hi mate. Very good theme. But I am having a problem.
Can you helme to fix?
I copy the folder to /usr/share/theme, but when I select your theme the windows doesent change.
Just like our friend here says.
A New Start doesn't display when selected. (
How can i fix this?
I am using Ubuntu Quantal/Quetzal 12.10.
Others themes that i installed works fine, but yours is much more good looking.
