I have now released it to the repos. Just go grab it from your Application Manager.

This is still the official thread of the AwOken Theme and i still want critique on it.

A couple of pictures...






-----------------------------------------------------------
I am proud to announce a theme i have been working on for awhile. It is not finished yet. Currently version 0.5.1. Would be nice to get some critique on it before i put it in the repos. I used the Array theme as ground and built out from that. It in very early beta and will look odd in some places.

Right now i would like to have some critique on my job so far.

To install.. just download the awoken-<version>.tar.gz and put it in the "/" directory. Then "sudo gunzip awoken-<version>.tar.gz" and "sudo tar xvf awoken-<version>.tar". It will be extracted to the /usr/share/themes/ directory.

Love -it - some things still need polishing - wish the shortcut icons were transparent with a frame like in pleego but apart from that its a great start.

Yeah, have been thinking on that. Not sure exactly yet though. They need to be a bit lighter and i might throw in a border as you suggested.

Its great!! Only thing is that I think that the Menu (top right) and the close icons are a bit out of sync with the rest of the icons. Thanks

Alrighty, theme looks awesome from the screenies you posted, but I have now been fighting with installation for the past hour and not got anywhere. Apologies for being a Windows noob. I have tried everything I found on the internet to unzip the tarball (and have previously succeeded with other tarballs) but I simply can't get it to create the awoken folder in /usr/share/themes/

Steps taken in terminal;

Code:
mv awoken-0.5.1.tar.gz /usr/share/themes
cd /usr/share/themes
ls -a
tar -zxvf awo<tab>
<terminal runs through loadsa pngs>
ls -a
<terminal reports no awoken folder>
gzip -d awo<tab>
ls -a
<terminal reports that the filename has had the .gz extension removed>
tar -zxvf awo<tab>
<invalid magic reported from terminal>
tar zxvf awo<tab>
<invalid magic reported from terminal>
gzip awo<tab>
ls -a
<terminal confirms the .gz extension is replaced>
tar xvf awo<tab>
<terminal runs through loadsa pngs>
ls -a
<terminal reports no awoken folder>
Again, my sincere apologies for being a windoze noob but tarball technology and the various options thereof are still a mystery to me. A little help please?

Shameless B-U-M-P

NVM found it. My mistake. Apologies for the bump - although the OP deserves it anyway

One more thing. The bright green selection background. Would much rather see a smokey purple etc. I have tried to change it myself using theme customizer and while some items are now purple backed, the majority retain the green. Would appreciate some direction on where else I need to make this change.

It is an image called TouchListBackgroundPressed.png you must change.
