Instructions:

Please avoid a manual install and use the GNOME Tweak Tool, it's much easier.

You can use the gnome-shell theme extension for easier switching of themes.

GNOME Tweak Tool

Make sure you have user-theme-extension installed. Load the GNOME Tweak Tool and go to Shell Extensions and click the "Use Theme Extension" switch. Now go to "Theme" and click the Shell Theme box and locate your theme zip. Now you can select the theme in the dropdown box.

- Popup-menu improvements.

I hate when people release a theme for software that is on a rolling release schedule. Gnome shell is updated every 6 or so months and developers and designers who make themes and extensions should keep up with it.

-1 For an awesome conversion that doesn't work on my version of Gnome Shell(3.8)

You do know its open source. You can take his code and keep it moving.

I hate when people complain instead of doing something about it.

-1 for being lazy and thinking the world revolves around you and your current version of Gnome.

GNOME don't support us, it one of the reasons why I don't use GNOME any more ,they even break extensions every release.

It's up to extension developers and designers to keep up with upstream packages. The changes are never significant and it's not hard to keep on track with it.

I don't care why you aren't using Gnome I'm saying you've released a theme for Gnome and you haven't stated in the description that there are no plans for further development and this is the final version of this theme.

It's not up to Gnome to support each and every developer and designer, it's up to you who have decided to take time out of your life to create something for the software to keep up with Gnome.

They're just themes, GNOME doesn't even support themes nor do they support anyone who does them. I don't see a flood of people updating the themes for me or taking them on.

@half-left I understand your frustration with Gnome's lack of support. You made an awesome theme and it's sad when people get upset and expect you to carry on developing for them out of your own free time. This is not your job and we are not paying you to offer us this.

On a lighter note, I'm finalizing a theme that's very dark and would like to make my next one light. If it's ok with you, I'd like to clone yours? With credit of course. :)

No problem, it's GPL, do what you like and it's nice to get a credit note. :)

I haven't used Gnome Shell for a long time but I want to try this theme and I can't because when I load up Gnome Tweak Tool is says I don't have user theme extension installed even though I've tried to install it so many times!! How do I do it on Ubuntu 12.04?

When I enable it from here

I can't load Gnome Tweak Tool so there's no way to load your theme.

You'd have to enable it manually in the dconf then. I cannot fix your issue with that.

its wonderful. one of the best luna theme for gnome.

One thing though 'can u make the "ON" "OFF" switch a lil better?'
it looks a lil blurred...

is the font is Droid Sans? i've installed that on my system & also did a Alt+F2 then 'r' but the panel font is the default, am i doing something wrong here?

apart from that everything rocks, way to go :)

The font is blurred because it's vector not an actual font. If I don't make it into and object then the font will be required by the user.

btw, an update... i'm running Ubuntu 12.04 & the Ubuntu font is installed by default. U mentioned in one of the comments saying the font is Ubuntu. So i fail to understand why my panel font's haven't changed to either Ubuntu or Droid after restarting shell then a full reboot. Any ideas bro?

Ubuntu font is in the line, if you want you own you will have to add it into the font line at the top. Try and put "ubuntu" last in the line at the top of the gnome-shell.css .

Dual boot or separate drive if you just want to play with it is easy enough.

Its not. My system is pretty much old, and separating it would result in much worse result. Maybe in future if I will have option, I may dig into it.

Are you using Ubuntu 12.04? I still don't understand, everything looks fine now (using gnome 3.4.1) and everything just looks fine except for that effect i told you, when i go to activities, the effect just looks fine, but when i go back it's not smoothy, like if it'd find it hard to go back :S Another suggestion, could you change the close button in windows overview to match the black circle with the white cross from elementary os?

:iconhalf-left:
half-left Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Not using Ubuntu no. Yes close button should matching, not sure why I used the one from the other version.

i don't understand, i actually am experimenting slow effects :S and i'm sure i'm using the 3.4 version under ubuntu 12.04 fresh install. Another question, are you also using elementary gtk 3 theme?

Strange, it could be the shadows on the panel and notification bar, that's all I can think of. I'm not using elementary GTK3 theme no.
Reply
:iconesmirlin:
esmirlin Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
yeah, notifications in the notification bar are not displying well the text. The effect i'm talking about is the scale one, it's SO slow and not smooth at all :S
