Name: ZevenBlue

Author: Leszek Lesner

Version: 0.1

Coments:based on the ZevenOS GTK-Theme and the Plastique Metacity Theme

Licensed under Creative Commons 3.0



* modern and clean

* not too dark and not too many fancy colors

* comatibly with openoffice,firefox and evolution

* default two-panel configuration of GNOME.

* It's visually neutral. Grey is a good color for this purpose

So this are the main points of the ZevenBlue Theme.


Heres a concept of the Desktop


The greyish look of the panels does not take away the focus. the focus remains on the blueish desktop and the icons on it.

== Metacity ==


Here its the same like with the panels. Keep it simple. Round borders and buttons that show their function when hovering over them (i.e. close button shows a red x)

GTK Theme

The GTK-Theme still needs some work but it should focus on a blue menuitem background when hovering and a font switching from the normal black background to white. (It's working for Firefox and some other GTK apps, but not the desktop right now). \\ The menus should have 'round corners' at the bottom. It is also very important to have some more space between the menuitems as it is normally. This allows for bigger new shiny icons that fit perfectly on large screens. For smallerscreens I would suggest sticking with the old icon size and menuitems space. Finally the menuitems that are selected are overlayed with a nice blue grid.

The Buttons need a clear round border (black) and a color grid showing if they are pressed or not.

The progressbar should be a blue one with the same colors as the menuitems. It should have a plastic like effect. So it is necessary to keep it flat.
