This is a great theme. However, I noticed that when you maximize the window, the Metacity theme becomes flat as opposed to the rounded top appearance. Was this intentional or is it something that needs to be fixed?

Thanks. - Feb 17 2008

Everything looks great. The only issue I've noticed are the drop-down list boxes. The text in these show black instead of white or gray. Other than that, it's great.

I would have mentioned more of a color selection but you already answered that question in a previous post. :-) - Jan 06 2008

I sure didn't think it was "barely noticeable". That's the first thing I noticed when I viewed the image at full size. You could also tell that the makeup was trying to cover up the fact.

Furry models aside (heh), I liked the idea though as you mentioned it does need some softening. Still lots of jaggies around the eye. - Jul 18 2007
I thought the idea was nice. The Ubuntu logo on the eye could be a little more subtle so that it doesn't pop out so much as to look superimposed.

Also, is it me or does she seem to have a hormone imbalance? You can clearly see what looks like a moustache that was bleached. Maybe on a more feminine model, perhaps? Just an observation... - Jul 17 2007

Great job, but remember that PowerPC wasn't only on the Mac. The Pegasos and EFIKA systems from Genesi also use the PowerPC. And remember that there are some boxes that use IBM's POWER processors which are also supported by the Ubuntu discs.

Maybe you could say "For your PowerPC/POWERx based systems" or something of that nature?

Just a thought. :-) - Jun 25 2007

Very nice theme. But I must ask, what theme and window manager are you using? I've always wanted something like the tabs in BeOS but since Sawfish was removed as the default window manager and replaced by Metacity, I haven't seen anything like that since.

Thanks. - Jun 24 2007

Well, I did know that the Rhapsody border was darker than the Platinum, but for some reason it looked darker than it was supposed to. Guess it was just me. I just compared the theme to the pictures you linked to and the picture in the sample here. It's the same. Must be my eyes.

As for the button delay, I'm using the theme on Ubuntu 7.04 on a Pentium 4 laptop (HP Compaq nx9010) using a Radeon IGP 340M and it's got 512 MB RAM. The delay is noticeable on the maximize and minimize buttons moreso than on the close button, but it's there.

The Classic Metacity package that mimics the Platinum look doesn't exhibit this delay, so there might be something there you could use:

Hey, this is QuadSix50 from the PPCMLA.

I love the Metacity theme.....great job

Two things though...

One, the color looks to be a little darker than on the sample image you provided. I don't know if it's maybe my laptop screen, but it does seem a little darker. If making it a little lighter changes the integrity of the theme, then I'll live with it. :-D

Two, there seems to be approximately a 1-second delay from when you press any of the buttons to when the button shows itself depressed. Any way to fix that?

Thanks! - Jun 09 2007

This is excellent. I've only used Arch once and I liked it, but I still have a special place for Slack. Still, it's an excellent rendering of the Arch Linux logo. Have you thought about proposing this as an artwork to be included with Arch? - May 06 2007

Nothing wrong with saying what you believe, but sometimes the delivery can either garner respect and understanding or it can repel even further. Again, I only made a suggestion. You can follow it or not, that's your choice.

Also, neglecting to use your freedom of speech is different from practicing restraint. The former is out of ignorance while the latter is out of wisdom. I have the freedom to say anything I want, but what good is it if its at a loss when more could have been gained by not saying anything or by saying just enough that was necessary to get the point across? Fine, you voiced your opinion on the subject. But was it necessary to go into this whole tirade of comments? I don't think so. - May 05 2007
No one is asking you to, but from the way this thread was going it seemed like you were trying to fuel the fire. The only one that can make you believe anything is you...you ultimately make the decision to believe something or not. You can even say that it doesn't belong here (if you so believe it) and I can disagree with you....obviously none of your posts or those of anyone else against this message have been removed.

I don't remember the submitter saying that he didn't want any criticisms. I think he expected it but not to this degree. And to be honest, some of the comments did start to go the personal route, hence his reaction. Both of which I personally question from both parties.

And yes, freedom is nice...it's also a two way street.

To be honest, my issue with this thread was that it always happens and always ends up with the same result. So why bother starting them over and over and over and over.....get my drift? Usually I don't bother, but it just seems like such a waste of time that could be used concentrating on productive tasks like creating the artwork for your favorite desktop environment on your favorite system, whatever that might be or say.

But unfortunately, history still repeats itself. - May 05 2007
And that's fine. I liked the message but honestly, I didn't think that much of the art behind it (no offense to the submitter, just my opinion). It didn't appeal to me either, but for different reasons. Still he does have the right to submit it as much as anyone else with their artwork just as much as anyone has to comment about it, good or bad.

For the record, I have seen some Buddhist artwork here a while back that I believed was beautiful despite what I believe about Buddhism. I didn't cast a vote for those submissions, but I didn't vote it down because the message was contrary to what I believe. Others here that are atheist have also done the same with other religious submissions, and that is respectable.

I figure that if the submissions here are still visible, it's because the admins of the site are OK with it. They won't stop you from posting whatever you want so long as it falls within their rules. Obviously, something that would promote hate in any form would be removed, but I'm not an admin here so I don't know. I don't believe this does that, hence why it's probably still here. - May 05 2007
Woops! Lesson learned: never refresh a comment thread page right after you posted a comment. :-p - May 05 2007
But the question remains: are you marking it down because in your heart the art isn't good, or because you don't agree with the message despite the art actually being good (I'm not saying whether this particular one is good or not...not my style, but someone might like it)? If you don't agree with the message even though the art might be good, wouldn't that be the same as voting a non-popular-but-valid post on a digg.com thread, which I see a lot of on there? Doesn't sound like a very "tolerant" gesture by any means.

Art is subjective, but as I said this is a site about artistic expression. At this point, you come off as though you're looking for a fight. You trying to attack him on his beliefs and what he can submit is no better than someone censoring your right to say what you're saying now because you don't believe in a deity. Consider yourself blessed that you have this freedom...in some countries, people are tortured or killed for saying stuff like this. Agree to disagree and vote by what you think of the art. That's my SUGGESTION...what you do with that is your choice. Free will, good sir....even the "imaginary friends" (as you say) in the Bible were given that. - May 05 2007

You know, this always tends to happen after a while here. Someone posts something that has to do with faith and then people start crying about why this is inappropriate here despite the various other submissions that tend to offend many others in equal ways.

I'm going to say what's been said before on this site many times ad nauseum:

"If you don't like it, don't view it!"

There. Plain and simple.

I'm a Christian and I don't agree with some of the nude or any of the satanic submissions. Not all nudes are tasteless (look at works from Michelangelo, Boticelli, etc.) and a select few submissions have been tasteful, but there are others that just scream "trash" IMO. Do I go screaming to the admins about how offensive this is (especially when kids visit this site)? No. I just ignore it and move on to the next submission that interests me. I've even appreciated the good artwork of those of other faiths because the art was good despite where I stand in my beliefs.

And don't vote it down because you don't agree with the message. This is Gnome-Look/KDE-Look/<your-favorite-DE>-Look, not digg.com. It's about the artwork and the quality of it. Stick to that and respect the beliefs and standpoints of everyone else for goodness sakes!

I can understand, especially since it's just a few changes from Clearlooks. I actually like the two engines. They run decently on older hardware. But I was growing tired of the default colors, especially the blue since Apple and Microsoft decided that would be the Color to Rule Them All. :-p This is why I decided to modify the colors to green and I thought i would share it with everyone here. :-) - Jun 09 2006

Actually, I believe he's referring to make it follow the GTK colors of a partcular theme. If that theme has active colors that are blue, it will change to a blue color...if green, it will change to a green color. This is so that it's consistent. Otherwise you'll have a static color which might not match the GTK theme. - Jun 21 2006

While the look is a bit stark (as is usual with the Windows Classic look), I personally have always thought it was a clean look, unobstrusive to the user. Plus, most new users to Linux might feel comfortable with the look while taking advantage of a better OS core.

Kudos to the creator of this Metacity theme. - Jun 04 2006

As nice as this is, I have to say that I went back to Plastik. I wasn't aware that it was a dekorator theme and quite frankly, I don't really like dekorator all too much. that's just my opinion.

Nice design, but I also did find the first port pf Clearlooks2 to KDE and I was also unimpressed with it. So far, Plastik has the upper hand for me. :-/ - Jan 27 2006

Yeah, I was using the stock Gnome icons on my Ubtuntu system. I agree, there could be better ones, but I was just interested at the moment to have a GTK2 theme that was pleasing to me and the default Gnome icons don't bother me that much. However, a modification to the Tango icons as Sparrk mentioned (and from the looks of it has already provided one) in a greenish color would be nice especially considering that the Trash icon is green also. Anyone up for it?? ;-)

Again, this was just a color mod to the original Clearlooks GTK2 theme, nothing more. - Jan 13 2006

DaBlade, I do agree that this makes no sense here.

What I don't agree is that Gnome is ugly. I've seen my share of ugliness from KDE more often than not, probably just as much as I've seen from Gnome. Instead, mention how you prefer the functionality of one over the other. I use both and I enjoy/dislike a lot of things about both DEs in both functionality and looks.

And ellion, while KDE-Look and Gnome-Look are basically the same portal, if what you say is correct then we would see everything from KDE on the Gnome section and vice-versa. And that's not even talking about the XFCE section! It's up to the user WHERE they want to display the submission. - Jan 08 2006

Just out of curiousity, why are you naming all of your submissions "jAvaCidBuRN"? if someone wanted to view all your submissions, all they would have to do it click on your username and it would show you along with all of your submisions. Kind of makes it confusing when you're looking for one of the files you've created.

Just an opinion.

Anyways, great work. - Nov 14 2005

It's not that it's a bad theme, because that it most definitely is not.

It's just that it's kind of counter-culture to be using Linux and an open source DE with a Microsoft Windows logo on your window manager. I mean, even themes that mimic those in Windows aren't as counter-culture as the Windows logo on your DE. A theme is subjective and I have no issues with people using Windows-looking themesm, but plastering a Windows logo just doesn't make sense since it's not even Windows!

I thought it was a great theme until I saw the Windows logo at the far left of the window manager. Kind of like a famous painting with the artist's name misspelled.

It's not a kneejerk response. It's just that Microsoft, the Microsoft logo, and other MS trademarks have nothing to do with what Linux and other open source projects are all about. Hence, counter-culture. - Oct 19 2005
