Gnome Shell Screenshots

Still rockin' the Gnome Shell on my EeePC. Well, at least part time, CrunchBang never leaves my harddrive. ;)

I'm using the excellent Atolm Gnome Shell theme by half-left with some extra tweaks by myself to add in some transparency. Also using the Atolm-gtk3 theme by TheDeviantMars and the wallpaper is Road at Dusk. And of course, what would a Linux desktop be without some Conky love, the two Conky widgets are by myself which the clock I have released. I've also got quite a few Gnome Shell extensions installed...

Here's a few recent screenshots of my setup:

As requested, I have made my tweaked Atolm theme available.

In order to use other Gnome Shell themes be sure to have these installed:

  • gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme
  • gnome-tweak-tool

You can either use the zip and install it with the tweak tool or extract the tar.gz to ~/.themes/ and use the tweak tool to change the theme. See bottom of post for the file attachments.

Enjoy. :D



Very nice. I still can't get my head around Gnome 3 or maybe it's Fedora in general that has me baffled.

This is a nice theme btw :) Any chance of releasing your version of the shell theme? I'm a bit of a sucker for nice transparencies :)

Thanks Omns.
If I had to guess, I’d say it’s Gnome3 that’s causing issues for you. Compared to Debian, Fedora has a few minor things that are set up differently. (aside from the obvious things like Gnome3 and systemd)

But then, who knows… :)

I certainly can release my tweaked theme. I’ll let you know when I’ve gotten it together. ;)

Thanks for the comments.
