Concepts

There have not yet been any ideas for wallpapers, login manager themes or usplash themes.

attachment:Kin_Tonic_Prototype.png

This was the prototype using Emerald and Compiz. The window controls were edited out. The window and panel decorations were derived from the Kin (["Artwork/Incoming/Intrepid/Kin_Intrepid"]) and Kith (["Artwork/Incoming/Intrepid/Kith_Intrepid"]) styles proposed by Ken Vermette.

Comments

As people have said on the mailing list - its great. Nautilus looks a little bar (too white/bright) and maybe needs a little more darker tones to add contrast in the window. The only other thing I could suggest would be top make the window boarder around the outside of the window a little darker as the theme feels just a little too light and bright. But other then that, fantastic job here! -LostOverThere DateTime

Yummy! Reminds me of tangerine ice cream Smile :) Two minor comments: perhaps the wavy line in the title bar could be a little bit blurrier (gaussian 1px?). Also about the window buttons: the unmaximize button could move a pixel downwards maybe, and could we have an X (the maximize cross rotated 45 degrees) instead of the circle as "Close"? I know I'm nitpicking but this is such a nice theme I couldn't keep myself from commenting. Good work. -- vyruss DateTime(2008-07-31T18:52:24Z)
