Space Odyssey - Gnome Shell n Cinnamon Theme by rvc-2011 Space Odyssey - Gnome Shell n Cinnamon Theme by rvc-2011
Gnome Shell Theme Inspired by "Visitors" posted by liquidsky64.

REQUIREMENTS:
Gnome 3.2
Cinnamon 1.1.3 / 1.2
MGSE (Optional for those who use bottom panel). If Bottom Panel is not needed or used, you can delete the bottom panel section from the gnome-shell.css file.

INSTALL:
Extract to ~/.themes and choose using gnome-tweak-tool.
for cinnamon shell, you can choose from the overview > themes or choose using cinnamon-settings (you have to download and install cinnamon-session and cinnamon-settings)

IMPORTANT NOTE:
i ve included seperate folders for cinnamon 1.1.3 and cinnamon1.2 (which is named as cinnamon by default)
Default cinnamon is for version 1.2
for those using older version of cinnamon, open the space odyssey folder in ~/.themes and rename cinnamon-1.1.3 to cinnamon. save and restart cinnamon.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:
a) Wall Paper by Liquidsky64 : [link]

b) Icons: Awoken by the one and only... aleciev !

c) USS Enterprise image taken from web and modified to suit.

Hope you enjoy this theme....

UPDATE LOG:
24.1.2012
Updated cinnamon 1.2 compatibility (menu reorganised to new css style. here you wont find themes in overview mode. you need cinnamon settings to change cinnamon theme)

19.1.2012
Added support for cinnamon and tweaked the gnome-shell.

18.12.2011
Changed the popup selector (now the jumpy effect is removed)
Popup Seperator lines thinned down and gradient given. I ve changed the preview image to display the new look

I colorized Awoken Iconset to 50/05/05 and used leafy-blue folder for customization to go with boomerang gtk3theme => [link] by ghogaru
Here is the Preview => [link]
Hope you like this combination.

This shell prompted me to create a matching gtk3 "Oceanic Dark" which you can find here => [link]
All credits to the original author ghogaru for Boomerang Deux to inspire me !

have to try editing the rc file conky window.
own window YES
own window transparent
etc....
best would be to send a message to mucas, the author of cronograph station on gnome-look
i too dont use this conky on my e17 desktop as the background is trans black with a shadow drop... where as the same is good on gnome / cinnamon desktop !

but when i try to start conky i get this message in the terminal:
Conky: /home/nasko/.conkyrc: 30: no such configuration: 'on_bottom'
Conky: /home/nasko/.conkyrc: 63: no such configuration: 'border_margin'
Conky: use_spacer should have an argument of left, right, or none. 'no' seems to be some form of 'false', so defaulting to none.
Conky: /home/nasko/.conkyrc: 94: no such configuration: 'xmms_player'
Conky: got an endif without matching if

2.next...
$sudo chmod u+s /usr/sbin/hddtemp

3.$sudo sensors-detect #answering Yes (default) to all questions, even that last one that defaults to No

4. Now restart your session

check the cronograph folder and the rc file to see if the path is right, else you need to point it to the folder where you placed ! its not difficult, just some simple oversights like these that must ve gone un noticed !

reg the black background, i can suggest one thing. i explored for my e17 desktop and i got the result.
download gsetroot from the repo.
from terminal issue command gsetroot. this will open a gui. point it to the wallpaper you are using and set it to fit to screen option. apply. now your conky should behave in transparency. revert back if you achieve the result.

you will need gnome-shell 3.2 to use the gnome shell theme or cinnamon desktop to use cinnamon theme.

extract the zip to your hidden folder (.themes)
open nautilus (file manager) and type Ctrl+H.
your hidden folders and files will be visible. look for .themes (create one if you dont find it there).
extract contenets of the zip into this folder.
if you are using gnome-shell, use gnome-tweak-tool (listed as advanced settings in the apps)
choose this theme.

if you are using cinnamon1.2 then use cinnamon-settings to choose this theme.

hope you could get it.
