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.

Update - 29th May 2012

Only works with the version said in the description and the themes are not supported any more because of the constant breakage on GNOME's end.

I love this theme. Nice work!

For whatever reason, I did have a little bit of trouble in the overview. The hover-over text for the dash apps and the icons for the application overview were all smashed together. I assume it was just some weird thing with my set-up, but if anyone else had trouble with this, I changed gnome-shell.css to include:

.dash-label {
border-radius: 7px;
padding: 4px 12px;
background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.5);
text-align: center;
-x-offset: 8px;
background-gradient-direction: vertical;
background-gradient-start: #5d5d5d;
background-gradient-end: #757575;
border: 1px solid rgba(255,255,255,0.0);
box-shadow: inset 0px 0px 3px 1px rgba(0,0,0,0.3);
color: #fff;
font-size: 10pt;
-shell-caption-spacing: 4px;
}

which more or less (more less than more) matches the window captions

and

.icon-grid {
spacing: 50px;
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 118px;
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 118px;
}

thanks for the many good themes!

Yep, you have 3.4 CSS lines there which is what the problem is, same with the contacts in the overview.

Hum I used meld to see the diff between Orta 3.0 & 3.2, It's CSS only :(
JS seems to be only for declarative properties.

I think I could made a 3.2 Dark from 3.0 Dark by copying your changes on the white Orta, but I could do some mistakes.

Do you need some help with the Dark version ?
I'm no good for design, but maybe I could give some help for the JS

Hello, love this theme... But since I upgraded to Gnome 3.2 on Arch Linux I'm getting spacing issues in the panel. Everything's kind of moved towards the left side of the screen a bit (see screenshot in link below). Is there an easy fix for this or do I have to wait until this is ported over to gnome 3.2? I installed this theme with the package from the AUR if that helps. Everything else is working fine though :)

some problems with this theme - gnome-shell sometimes restarts itself

I like the light version a lot.

But how about making the message-tray transparent like other themes do?
I find the opaqueness completely obscures the bottom of maximized windows
which is kind if annoying particularly on smaller screens.

It's quite easy to do yourself. Just open the gnome-shell.css and find:

/* Message Tray */
#message-tray {
background-gradient-direction: vertical;
background-gradient-start: #fcfcfc;
background-gradient-end: #dbdbdc;

Change the gradients to:

/* Message Tray */
#message-tray {
background-gradient-direction: vertical;
background-gradient-start: rgba(252,252,252,0.6);
background-gradient-end: rgba(219,219,220,0.6);

Save the file, reload GNOME Shell.

Great work! I love how you made the messenger pop ug great choise of colors and simple interface :)
Is there any way to take out shadow from bottom panel? Just because when it is minimized it replace the windows a little bit.

Great job! ;)

You mean the message tray? You need to look in the gnome-shell.css and take out the "box-shadow" line in the message tray part, save it and reload the theme.
