Version: 1.0

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

Concept

Objectives

* 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.

Desktop

Heres a concept of the Desktop

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Karmic/ZevenBlue?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=ZevenBlue.png

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

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Karmic/ZevenBlue?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=ZevenBlue-2.png

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. The menus should have 'round corners' at the bottom. Menuitems that are selected are overlayed with a nice blue gradient.

The Buttons need a clear round border (black) and a color gradient 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.

Examples:

  • Menuitems :

  • Buttons :

  • Progressbar :

  • Tabs :
