I am using compiz and it is an emerald theme, I modified Wombat grey increasing the width of the title bar and designing my own title bar buttons so that they were larger and a design I liked on an hdpi display. It is configurable as to color. You can add glow, borders of different colors, title bar transparency and other color parameters. The title bar buttons are designed to change color with a mouseover. It was a fun project.

Going full blown psychedelic.

Image

Icons = modified ACYLS, but inheriting Sardi-Ghost-Flexible (with colour of latter changed to a lime green with Sardi-provided script. It can't do gradients, though). Now that I know of the existence of ACYLS, I realise the Sardi set is derived from that, but the Sardi guy (Eric) has added a lot more icons so it's more complete.

Start button modified from k_sz's xcf file.

Gtk Theme and WM theme = his Cobalt mod of Numix

Interesting combo!

So is this Ninja Cat something similar to the MS Office's Clippy? :p

I feel bad about the startbutton. Should have been the MX logo, but they were all monochrome and I wanted something colorful. But it can also be seen as a little tribute to Apple. After all they stole the GUI from Xerox and made computer history.

There is no lack of colorful MX or Linux wallpapers, but MS made two sets of wallpapers featuring a goofy looking Ninja Cat. This is the only pic where the cat is somewhat serious. After all the "Windows as a disservice" it's nice to see some fan service. Linux has Tux and Xfce has the mouse. Windows could need a mascot that brings a little joy to the platform.

I don't think people switching to Linux because Windows is bad is a good situation. Microsoft should fix Windows and people should switch to Linux because they want to. I want both Mac and Windows to become better platforms. The reason desktop Linux is as good as it is today is because developers worked hard to catch up and sometimes surpass the features offered by those platforms. So yeah, a little tribute to Microsoft and hoping they get their heads in the right place.

Clippy was annoying. Ninja cat is up to a lot of fun so similar to Tux I would say. ;)

Nice work :) smooth but still dynamic. Maybe the attached file could please you.

I'm in the middle of something (twas cold'n rainy last week-end, i needed warmness) talking about metal, ice, rust and embers (i've finally destroyed my old blue jeans while welding in the mud so maybe could you find traces of dirty denim rags in these pictures xD)

Have been playing with old'school & bitmap fonts :) The artwiz pack is a must of the minimalistic (but readable) typographic art, from my pov. It isn't easy to install, but it's not a lost cause ! If you're insterested, here is the tutorial i've followed :

All of this probably deserves a little more roundness and velvet (feng shui, you know).

Really nice, k_sz!

I like your work and I have a request... I know, should never tell an artist what to do. :mad: Anyway, I'm going to do just that. ;) The startbutton is really nice, but would be better (I think) without "mx17" (more timeless) and without shadows (flat). You have done a great job with the colors. It looks more interesting than Apple's version. I'm actually a proud MX user, it's just that I like colors (old Apple logo, old Windows logo, old Ubuntu logo).
