Description:

Windows 8 modern UI (metro) metacity theme.

Please rate it if you like or/and uses !

This is my very 1st metacity theme creation.

gtk theme is here:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=158721


Install into /usr/share/theme, otherwise Gnome tweak tool will not detect the themes

If you want to install locally, starting Gnome 3.6, you need to both copy files into /home//.themes and /home//.local/share/themes

I love how this theme makes the window with the focus really stand out from the others. This is invaluable when using the focus-follows-mouse behavior.

Is this supposed to be working in gnome 3.6 and above? I cannot get it to work:( maybe the format is different, I see themes names metacity-2 and 3.. otherwise very nice and the gtk is also working well

Hello, it runs oin gnome 3.6 on my pc (13.04) but with some defaults. Perhaps i would write an gtk3-theme with an similar look after next monday. I've also an win95 theme under developpment for gtk3.6. ( and the win 8 theme is not really more i think even less compliacted to write XD) .

It would be great if there was a version for KDE.

I modified it myself and used this gtk theme: http://thevirtualdragon.deviantart.com/art/Numix-White-Gtk-Theme-v1-4-367777347?q=gallery%3Athevirtualdragon&qo=0

Here is the final result: http://i.imgur.com/nDXokhh.png

hello,
This is my current ubuntu 13.04 desktop:
http://ambiancew7.batserve.com/B2.png
http://ambiancew7.batserve.com/B4.png
I've also created an livecd, which will be released in few weeks (see my two sourceforge net pages/projects).

Win 7 is the version before win 8.If the win 7 design is to a certain degree compatible with gtk3, the win 8 "gui" schould be too

I'm sure that some conky and screenlets scripts could emulate parts of the the very unintuitive metro ui.

If you need help to write the tickboxes or something else for the gtk3 (wion8 like) theme,please send me a message. I will try to help you then.

sry for my bad grammar, sry for writing faults. I'm not good at it, and my native language is not english
