Re: WIP - Fedora 8 theme



Hm... nice, to me only the panel now slightly resembles Vista, but let's
not talk about Vista... you are making Fedora theme... so... Could you
consider using as the basis the colour palette used by Echo icons[1]?

it`s probably best if i did used that palette but i just want to design freely without any limitations. so for now i don`t use the palette. it`s fine if it just fits the palette theme but other than that i will just make it how i like it.

For the color jump and the normal gradient.. i`ve tried a normal gradient but that somehow doesn`t look so good.. the taskbar you see in previous mockup is likely to be the final one. i might change the tasks itself a bit but not much.

The window itself is still troubling me but looking better with every mockup.

looking good but not wise for fedora to use as a default theme.. that will most likely result in a few lawsuits from well know company (starting with a M ending with a t) ;)

I know, it's just a resemblance, nothing more :) Maybe it's because the
glassy kind of shine? You could maybe try gradient instead of the
"colour jump" in the middle (that's maybe what resembles Vista most).
