I can hardly wait! ;)

You are unique in providing customisability of the theme, no other theme I've come across (and liked) has that. It means I can use the same theme both on my desktops and my laptop, which is something I really appreciate.

I'm using archlinux, was using ubuntu before, but went to fedora for native gnome support, now I'm using arch because of the rolling release policy. Not sure if gdm is up to date in linux mint 14 (gdm should have the same version as gnome), you can install gdm via the software manager or via command line. But I recommend to first looking online if gdm is working on mint.

Beautiful theme. It almost ticks all my boxes by default:

- Gnome 3.6
- Notifications work (they seem to break when using 3.4 themes)
- "user menu" all the way into the corner
- Small app icons (after enabling the extension)
- Aesthetically clean

The only thing I had to do manually was change the font size (9pt) to reduce the size of the top panel slightly.

The two things that make this theme stand out above the rest though are:

1. the idea of extensions is brilliant, the solution is also very nice and most important, it's self contained (i.e. it doesn't pollute my $HOME in any way)
2. the theme has a home web page with instructions for simple modifications (like changing the font)

I can't get it to show up on gnome tweak tool.
Also the customization script doesn't work, it always returns error (it seems it can't find the "frieze" folder)

Where did you place the 'Frieze' folder on your system? (the date November 22 2011 is the date that I released the first version of the theme, so it's not the date of the 3.6 release)

Well, i downloaded from your [link] and it works properly now.I always place them on usr/share/themes. The script still doesn't work tho.

:iconnuxio:
nuxio Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
For the script:
- it should work if you run the script from nautilus.
- if running from command line, do it like the following:
$ cd /usr/share/themes/Frieze/gnome-shell
$ sudo ./frieze-extensions.sh
- In the last step 'sudo' is required because of a bug in the script currently not asking for root access if running from command line.

Hey, yes i'm going to update it to 3.6. I was just waiting for the gnome 3.6 update with archlinux. This morning I upgraded to 3.6, seems to be a lot of changes, so I have to redesign some parts. I think you can expect an update somewhere in november.

nuxio, this is one of the best Gnome Shell theme I've ever tested. I'm using it right now. I really liked it. I was just wondering how to increase the font size both for the top panel and the overview mode. The texts are too small (to me). Is that such an easy thing to do? Congratulations, dude. Your them rocks! Cheers. :) brunces

Hey, glad you're liking it! The easiest way is changing to overall font size of the theme. You can do this easily by opening the themes dir, than find the file called 'general.css'. Open it, and you'll see the following code:

stage {
font-family: roboto, sans-serif;
font-size: 10pt;
color: #fff;
}

Now change the 10pt to something bigger. This will change all the font sizes of the theme though. It is a little bit harder to change only certain font sizes if you don't know the different parts of the theme. But all font sizes are defined under the above stage block. So you can play around with them if you want. I hope this will help you a little bit, if you still struggle let me know :)

I would like to change the "Activities" button with the button Zukitwo uses along with the open window that shows in the panel, how can I do this?
Reply
:iconnuxio:
nuxio Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2012
I'm not sure how to do this, i'll look at it when I have some more time. For now maybe you can look at Zukitwo's theme and look for the css property '.panel-button:overview'. It should be defined there I think :)

Thanks for the 3.4 update!
I've stumbled across one issue:
If I type sth. while in overview (i.e. to search for apps) there's no highlight box when I try to navigate through the results with the arrow keys.

The theme would be perfect to me if the dock would have a border and background (e.g. same style as the workspace selector on the right). Any chance? :-)

I don't speak much english but I have to ask, linux mint 12 use gdm?
Reply
:iconnuxio:
nuxio Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011
I think it uses ligthdm instead, just like ubuntu 11.10. To be sure open the terminal and enter the command "gdm --version", you should see "GDM <version number>" if gdm is installed.

Is it also possible to install the gdm on Ubuntu?

nuxio Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011
GDM is available as package in ubuntu, you can try searching for gdm in the software center or open a terminal and enter "sudo apt-get install gdm" and follow the instructions. If you want to switch back to LightDM, open a terminal and enter "sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm". Last time I checked though, ubuntu was not up with the latest GDM version and could not be themed. I think the version has to be at least 3.2
