Windows 7 theme

GTK2 Themes by Cycron 30 comments


You can open Windows 7 theme → gtk-2.0 → Menu-Menubar and replace menubarlight.png with this file:

(I cropped a screenshot of IE8 under W7 so this really is a W7 menu).

After that, edit Windows 7 theme → gtk-2.0 → gtkrc and, on line 4, change the file name of the include to "menubar-light.rc".

This method should work to have the correct menu. - Dec 08 2009

I didn't say it's not a good idea to mimic Win7. If people like it, I have no problem with that.

I was just wondering why Vista/7 themes always had green menubars. - Dec 03 2009

Why to hell do all Win7/Vista themes have green menubars??

This is not the correct color, and this is not beautiful. - Dec 03 2009

I could never understand why there are a category per size. A 1920×1200 wallpapers works very great on a 1280×800 screen! So why posting 1000's images? - Mar 13 2009

Looks great! But the spacing of the buttons in the titlebar is no 100% correct.

This is your work:

This is the real WinXP:

The problem is that your bar is 1 pixel too thin + your buttons are 1 pixel too high. Result: the buttons are 2 pixels too high. - Mar 07 2009

Why don't you make it bigger? Use the SVG source:

Then export with Inkscape.

I think an SVG version could be a good idea. A little SVG that we can set as mosaïc (like this it works with every resolution).

It could also be transparent so that everyone can chose the color (s)he prefers. - May 09 2007

You should try Wine and/or CrossOver for Adobe products, I think it works.

You should add a preview! And the archive is huge: more than 6Mo! You should only make a JPG version, and in only one resolution (even if I have a 1024px screen, I can use the 1600px version). - Dec 07 2006

Well, sorry for downloading and leaving no comment: I'm using your wallpaper since yesterday and I find it really cool.

Is the blur rendered with Blender too, or was it added with The Gimp?

One more remark: I don't think there is a need to put several sizes in the archive: the bigger one fits for small screens too. - Aug 12 2006

You should add a little shadow under the foot, it could be nice.

I've started to redesign the foot in Inkscape so you will have a bigger version (for your wallpaper for example). It's alllmost finished and will soon be available here. - Jul 25 2006

Many thanks for your suggestions, I think you are right.

In fact, I actually never saw Apple's splash screen... I designed this one because of that one: (look at my comment). I don't even use it on my computer :-p

But, well, I think I could do one that takes account of your comment. - Jul 24 2006

Hahaha, you're very funny! Well, thank you for making me laugh like this!

First of all, aergern is right: you just copy Apple's artwork, but when I copy your work, you don't agree. Do you really think this is logic?

Secondly, and that's what is REALLY fun, your work is under GPL... So I can modify and redistribute your work: YOU DELIBERATELY GAVE ME THIS LIBERTY. I even mentionned that you're the original author.

Sorry guy but I can do what I did (well maybe YOUR work is illegal as it uses Apple's logo). - Jul 19 2006

It would be nice if «MAC OS X» was replaced by «GNOME» (or something like this), and the apple was replaced by the Gnome foot.

But all this keeping the glossy effect of course. - Jul 19 2006
