I’ve increased the screenshot’s sizes! Wallpaper in screenshot is ubuntu-elf (or aria-elf ) and is popular and available at I strongly believe global-menus are efficient, functional and effective, it also gives the theme an overall concise feel. Its avilable for download in the official repositories. Just search for gnome-applet-globalmenu using synaptic package manager.

I recommend using Compiz as you default window manager. What would Linux be without compiz!!!!. It comes default in Ubuntu. Transparent menus are also prettier so enable opacity in your compiz settings. For transparent panels, change your panel properties from none (system theme) to a color of your choice and make it as transparent as you like.

Non-Ubuntu users can replace the custom notebook.png tab in the gtkrc with the other alternatives (Tux, NetBSD, Tux-mobster… : ) lol ) I’ve provided in the tabs folder. You can also create custom tabs by adding images to base.png also included in the Tabs folder. For more details view my blog on the 1st of July. Or alternatively download Blackfuzz ; my generic theme at

Works particularly well with the Mac4Lin iconset, Tango or the Royale-Preview icons by SchoolDesign (all available at My main blog is in development …………………. and my first major post should be out before president Obama comes to Ghana!!!!!!! (11th July).

I’m working on emerald themes for Global-menu users as well as some fun titlebars and custom application looks.

Any custom effects you want to see?
