Sorry, I'm a little late.
The quick launchers at bottom of the screenshots are "AWN" and "Kooldock".
They're included in most distributions.
The Sidebar application is "Gkrellm".
I use it with a transparent skin.

Hi Guys,

This theme looks awesome, but I can't get it to work.
Could someone tell me which packages or programs I need to install through "Add/Remove" software or synaptic?

I'm on 8.04 Ubuntu Linux, no problem I hope?

Please help me out, I get confused with all these window managers.

Regards,

MachineHead

How'd you get that dock theme in the X-C Blacklight preview? I can't seem to make AWN do that.

On the first screenshot, i'm using "Kooldock" with the Blacklight-Background and reflective Icon's.
I've made the Blacklight-Theme for AWN too ,
and both added to:

"Kore & More"

Have a look at !

P.S.: You did a nice work - Keep on !

The first of the three previews looks like another (worse, sorry) version of code2's Illuminate and the 3rd like another (also worse, sorry) version of code2's KORE.
Maybe I'm not right, but it resembles a lot of code2's excellent work.

Hello David,

Thank You for good comment on XAIRON-COMPIZ !!!
It seems You are a little bit "FAN-atic" in the moment. I have the
greatest respect on code2's work. He makes not only style, he is the style!

But You can't go around to all black-styled themes and say, that it is
a worse version of code2's excellent work. I would never tell You, that
You have made a worse COPY of the Kore-Theme (Look at the corners of KOREMIN).

So please respect not only code2's work, respect also others work !!!

Thank You and peace

What GTK theme are you using?

Report

Hi,
I'm working with KDE using style "QtCurve"
and a own color-sheme, which is tending to
Mac-style. I don't recommend a special GTK-Theme, it would be unjust to other similar Themes.

Thank You for interest and have much fun !

Hi,
The dock on the screenshot You see is Avant-Window-Navigator AWN (code.google.com/p/avant-window-navigator).
There are a lot of docks available for linux; AWN, Kooldock, Ksmoothdock, Kiba-Dock, kxdocker and so on....
But it depends on Your system, what dock You can use!! My favorite docks are AWN and Kooldock, You can find themes for them
on Gnome-Look and KDE-Look.
To get the panel away, I put it on the top
of the screen and switch it in settings on autohide.

Otherwise I dont know why that is not ease to say thank for the inspiration. I think RMWS deserved it as that was far the first theme of this kind of glassy style. Am I right?

I don't understand Your problems.
This theme has other buttons, other colors, uses another technology, has new facilities, has a non-transparent top other sizes other shadows and I've read the GPL.

But!!
This theme has 4 corners. Exactly the same
corners like Windows 3.0. - 4 corners !!!

And now comes somebody like You and wants me to give credits to Mr. Gates.

Thank You !

You dude, you are right.
Even you make me wrong because I've explained what I have seen on my screen.
I want to clear one thing. Your themes is nice, I mean it. Nice because looks like RMWS and exactly that makes it nice however you got to that result, this you must understand. And basically thats all about it.
I checked GPL on RMWS and that is "CC-BY-NC-SA Author: Erno Horvath" and 'Honest to God' you have not seen RMWS before I mentioned it, right?

Thx.
I'd must be blind, being on Gnome-Look and KDE-Look for over a year and never having seen RWMS.
I tried to see my theme with Your eyes and You have right too.
One can see it as simple conglomeration of OSX-Look, Windows-Look. RMWS-Style, Porsche-Design and Gnome-touch.

Maybe it's only me seeing it having something own but for my taste it yet looks so....
................................dammned "eyecandy" nice,

that I stopped using my longtime favourite Dekorator/Emerald-theme and I hope it's worth to share it.

Thanks for Your comment.

RMWS is based on "trueglass", Xairon on "pixmaps"-engine.
Xairon-Compiz has the new idea of combining glass and non-glass effects.
The adjustable titlebar allows KDE-Users to get the same feeling as Gnome-Users have.

I think the only One, I have forgotten to give credit to is the

Vortigo XMMS-Skin
