    Gnome XP/Vista Theme...how?


    Hi All,

    I was wondering whether anyone knows on a tutorial on how to make Gnome mimic XP/Vista without resorting to Compiz/Beryl? I prefer not to use Beryl/Compiz as that 1)can be unstable and 2)slow down Linux.

    I'd appreciate any help on this.

    Thanks

    Hi and Welcome !

    Have you checked gnome-look,org ? Its a good source of Gnome Themes and other stuff.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You can find some nice artwork at GNOME Art - Artwork & Themes, too.

    Here's a theme that makes the window frames in Gnome look all XP-like:

    Here is a fairly straightforward tutorial on how to make Gnome look like Vista. It's written for Ubuntu but can be applied to pretty much any distribution.
