Description:

Theme looking like pioneer electronica with shiny buttons and many colors to use. It is released in 2 versions:

- Electronica version (titlebar has same color as window and has a belts at the top and bottom window border)

- Electronica FX version (titlebar is darker, window is rounded and has darker belt at the bottom of the window border)



The theme named "Electronica" or "Electronica FX" has freely customizable color (from Gnome theme manager). I made also a colored themes (found in an Electronica pack) with predefined colors, so you can use different color for window border and for GTK+ theme. All colors used in the color pack are mentioned in a "README (colors)" file which is in the Electronica pack.

It's very easy to make your own predefined color or to change a title alignment or even to change a button icon size. To do so read a "README (easily customize your theme)" file which is included in the Electronica theme archive.

I really like your work Mr Novomente

I've enjoyed making a few personalized variations of Saturglass and Polaris with the help of your instructions and revolutionary original coding variations, The only thing I want to be able to do is change the Icons rather than resize or recolour them... any advice appreciated.

Change the icon is much more difficult as it is a big change to source XML. My advice is to study Metacity theming. There are nice instruction how to build Metacity themes here:

Thanks for responding. So much for delegation lol :) I'll get round to it soon hopefully _ I messed around with Polaris and got a great "Hud" Like result and another fine variation from Saturglass but the icons just don't compliment my versions sadly...

Anyway I hope you get the time for some new stuff again soon.

Good Luck :)

I like this very original design.

Not a scheme that I would use personally, but it's very, very good.

Nice Work!

It really looks good (voted it). I’m using only the metacity, though, not the gtk.

One thing: firefox does not go right with it; there’s a white line separating the metacity from the "body" of the app. Even using the gtk theme it comes with.

Best regards!

Goes well with my custom colours; it only looks so bright in the screenshots because of his selected item colour

Nice and chunky buttons. I like the shine and the glow

Maybe the buttons are too big... and the dark line at the top, is... it doesn't fit well, I think; and the background for the previews is a pain, sorry, but I must say that :)
Good work anyway, generally I like it ;)
