Alienware Darkstar is a the complete GNOME port of the Alienware Darkstar theme made for Alienware by the Skin Factory. It Includes:<br /><br />1.) Gtk2 and Metacity theme<br />2.) GnoMenu2 Theme (Updated buttons and Menu. The Menu theme now better matches its Gtk2 counterpart.)<br />3.) Dungeon Font<br />4.) Background Wallpaper<br />5.) padster's colorful-alien xsplash (much better than mine)<br />6.) Screensaver<br />7.) Icons se-interface and se-interface v2 (red)<br />8.) Background for Nautilus<br />9.) usplash<br />10.) cursor theme X-Alien2-Dark<br /><br />Developer comments<br /><br />Sorry no install script (yet)<br /><br />Many thanks to nale12 whose original dark_star theme (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Dark_Star?content=110767) provided the foundation that I built this theme on.<br /><br />Much appreciation for jameshardy88 whose encouragement, assistance and friendship helped me do this. This is my very first Gtk2 theme and I had no idea what I was doing or how to do it when I started. He explained to me what I needed to do and how to go about it. He also proved to me (I really did already know this) that MS is a highly chaotic Cluster F*** where there is NO standardization of naming conventions for anything. His tweaking made the theme much better and made it look a lot more like it was supposed to. He redid the frames and borders and fixed the sliders. He also added a couple of elements I completely missed. Plus getting the buttons to look a whole lot better.<br /><br />The font is dungeon and to use it simple copy (or move) the font to your .font hidden directory in your home folder. If it doesn't exist then simply make it. You will need to install the font for the menu to work correctly.<br /><br />Using juan2000's ideas I also added 'Network Tools' and 'System Monitor' commands to the menu but opted not to add the network connection command since its a bit redundant being that it is accessible in the Notification Area of the Gnome Panel. Instead, I opted to add the run command.<br /><br />There are three backgrounds, including the Original Alienware Darkstar background. All are original works (not by me) made for Alienware and are freely distributable.<br /><br />The GnoMenu theme is designed for the bottom panel, though it can be used from the top, because the alien head graphics and wording is integrated into the menu design by the Skin Factory they will appear upside down if used from the top panel.<br /><br />The Icon sets are Se-Interface Se-Interface-V2_Red by MrSkope (Damian Strain) and ported to Gnome by Naf71 (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Se-Interface-V2+(Red)?content=118022). The original Se-Interface_Red works well but Version 2 has a better contrast scheme for dark themes (IMHO). The original Windows Icons for this theme are not available in PNG format. The creators of the Icons used a different type of file system unusable by anyone who does not have their program installed. This leaves Linux out completely in using the orignal Alienware Darkstar Icons.<br /><br />The Sound files are two from the original Mandrake (Mandriva) Galaxy theme and if you have ever heard them before then you understand why I went and hunted them down for this theme. The rest are royalty free sounds I downloaded that worked well. I did not create a sound theme file and simply suggest you copy (I repeat COPY) the files in /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo, as root, to a backup folder then copy my included sound files into /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo, and over write the files with mine. Main reason is this will also replace the guady (and highly annoying) Ubuntu drum sound with a more pleasant female computer voice saying "Computer Ready"<br /><br />The X11 cursor theme was originally made by JJ Ying (http://users.wincustomize.com/691873/) and coverted by KuduK (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/X-Alien2?content=117799)<br /><br />About GNOME:<br /><br />GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment???*a*?the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system???*a*?entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.<br /><br />GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.<br /><br />The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things ???*Nsjust work???*N?.
