I really like your work Mr Novomente

I've enjoyed making a few personalized variations of Saturglass and Polaris with the help of your instructions and revolutionary original coding variations, The only thing I want to be able to do is change the Icons rather than resize or recolour them... any advice appreciated.

Change the icon is much more difficult as it is a big change to source XML. My advice is to study Metacity theming. There are nice instruction how to build Metacity themes here:

Thanks for responding. So much for delegation lol :) I'll get round to it soon hopefully _ I messed around with Polaris and got a great "Hud" Like result and another fine variation from Saturglass but the icons just don't compliment my versions sadly...

Anyway I hope you get the time for some new stuff again soon.

Good Luck :)

I like this very original design.

Not a scheme that I would use personally, but it's very, very good.

Nice Work!

It really looks good (voted it). I’m using only the metacity, though, not the gtk.

One thing: firefox does not go right with it; there’s a white line separating the metacity from the "body" of the app. Even using the gtk theme it comes with.

Best regards!

Can you send me a screenshot of that window with the line? And plz note what kind of GTK theme do you use.

Goes well with my custom colours; it only looks so bright in the screenshots because of his selected item colour

Nice and chunky buttons. I like the shine and the glow

Maybe the buttons are too big... and the dark line at the top, is... it doesn't fit well, I think; and the background for the previews is a pain, sorry, but I must say that :)
Good work anyway, generally I like it ;)
