No more updates?

That's right. I did this for myself, but I use Cinnamon now.

I love this theme, close to the original and yet fresh and modern!

I'm using it on my netbook (1024x600px, 10") and the icon grid in the dash displays 6 columns of icons, and on a screen this small it gets crowded and confusing (while the original theme displays 5).
How can I tweak the .css to reduce the number of columns?

Thx a lot, keep up the good work!

It works on previous shell version. I hope it still work:

/* small icon-grid */
.icon-grid {
spacing: 24px; /* 36px */
-shell-grid-horizontal-item-size: 100px; /* 118px */
-shell-grid-vertical-item-size: 100px; /* 118px */

.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 64px; /* 96px */

Can you please upload older switches? Because to me, new switches are too simplified. Previous were great :)

Now I must use my own: [link]

Just a little fix must to be made to search icon it's 1px when should be 16px.

Also your theme is the best out there. Thanks!

К сожалению не нашел ни одной старой версии.
Для иконки поиска невозможно поставить полупрозрачность, в сером цвете выглядит не очень.
Так что эта иконка просто скрыта.

Sorry, I don't have previous theme version.
It is not possible set half transparency color for search icon at this moment, solid gray looks ugly for me. So it's just temporary hidden.

Здесь предложение по поводу темы, изменено цвет иконки и рамку, встроено в верхнюю панель. Еще установлено размер курсора на 1 пиксель и цвет rgba(0,0,0,0.4).

Here is an proposal I ask to your theme, that alters icon color and border, embeded it into top panel. Also it sets caret size to 1px & rgba(0,0,0,0.4) color.

Спасибо за предложение.
Не менял размеры элементов и шрифтов, чтобы тема была максимальна приближена к оригинальной.
Вернул иконку поиска и изменил стиль виджета, теперь стало ближе к оригиналу.

Спасибо большое за тему, и еще за старый логин GDM. Очень радует глаз:)
Небольшая деталь но все-же... как сделать в экране блокировки рамку сообщений светлее?
KEIII-RU Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2013
Это какой-то побочный эффект, экран GDM я не менял. У меня новый GDM и экран блокировки, которой выглядит во всех темах одинаково.
