Excellent idea to let people customize the theme and create "their" own! Kudos!

buena opcion para crear temas

Ignore the comment below. I was trying to use it with the Ubuntu Ambiance theme. Obviously it needs to be used with a Clearlooks theme, like Human (as suggested at gnome-look).
cainn - 15th December 2010

Not working :(
I'm getting generic buttons that are left justified no matter what options I choose.
cainn - 15th December 2010

very good app, thanks

Wow! :D great app man

I love this theme. I tweaked it to look bluish with a red button, like XFCE's Wallis or Windows XP. Thanks for this. By the way... why did you post this as CC-BY-NC instead of, let's say, CC-BY-SA or CC-BY? Don't you know that non-commercial themes cannot be bundled in a distro?

You did an really awesome job with this customizer! Keep on rockin :)
Herr Gabriel - 6th May 2010

So does anyone know how to move the controls without breaking the control colors?
badhat - 6th May 2010

@zacbarton -- I am aware of using gconf-editor to reposition the controls, but repositioning them seems to "break" the theme. When I move controls that were made to be on the right to the left side the buttons no longer display the custom close color or backgrounds for the .png images.
badhat - 4th May 2010

@badhat, yes to position the buttons on the left you will have to do some extra work, use this link to help - http://www.everyjoe.com/newlinuxuser/move-your-metacity-buttons-in-gnome/
zacbarton - 4th May 2010

What in the code determines the Button Position (left/right)? I have a theme that was made using your Homosapien Customizer but the buttons are on the right. Is there something in the theme.xml file that I can modify so that the buttons show correctly on the left side of the titlebar? (I'm actually a fan of the new window controls in Lucid)
badhat - 4th May 2010

Great work! As already mentioned: could you please make round upper corners optional like for the bottom corners ... thanks for this theme!

adrian - 16th April 2010

@antunes: there is an issue there which I'll look into fixing. its a new issue brought about by some new metacity patches applied to ubuntu lucid.
zacbarton - 12th April 2010

Very GOOD !!
ubunteros - 12th April 2010

Could you check the screenshot attached here: http://launchpadlibrarian.net/43796412/Screenshot-Appearance%20Preferences-1.png

I was wondering if this is intended or not, the close button looks strange when it's the only window button.
antunes - 12th April 2010

Entrenio con el entorno visual de ubuntu. Gracias por el aporte
pygmypossum - 11th April 2010

hello.
thanks for your great idea.
can you prepare a code for renaming our customized themes, so that we'd be allowed to keep our customizations as separate theme packages?
oguncak - 8th March 2010

great program..
irfan - 6th March 2010

I think this is truly great and see the potential for new and inexperienced themers to customize the desktop. I will spread the the word and link.

Would it be possible to add also coloring for the closing-button? I like your theme, but the orange doesn't fit to my desktop.
