Ghost - Pure Transparency -Now with ghost dark- by perj132 Ghost - Pure Transparency -Now with ghost dark- by perj132
repacked the theme with ghost dark for light backgrounds!!

As minimal as I can go.

This theme builds upon one of my previous themes "sleek shells"

I have wanted a transparent shell theme for a while now so I thought I'd make it happen.

pure transparency for top and bottom panels, and for workspace switcher and dash.

also the log out/shut down boxes ect

I left the menus ect coloured because they are to hard to read against light coloured backdrops.

Fully Compatible with Gnome 3.2

-The wallpaper is a default in ubuntu. the ghost dark image is from my gallery.

-to use the theme simply extract to your .themes folder in your home folder. Then set using gnome tweak tool!

-Hope you enjoy it!

-UPDATE! new apps icon with new transition looks cleaner
integrates tighter.

- Made a mistake since dark ghost was added the normal ghost theme with it had the wrong apps icon I just fixed this!! sorry.

is there anyway you can make it so that when your under applications, the menu thingy on the right is white, not blue letters for the diffent subfolders?

Love the theme,but what icon set goes with it? and what font is preferred?

I always use ubuntu font, the icons in the image are faenza darkest, though the type of icons you decide to use will depend mostly on the background. I am a big fan of awoken icons though as they tend to fit anything and look good [link]

Have a play around though Im sure you'll find something you like!

Thanks man!

Looks really nice! But I cant see the top-panel icons because I've set the panel to autohide, so it appears over the window title bars. Could you please provide a version of ghost with a top-panel and that is exactly the same dark, transparent colour as the current drop down menus, with a matching slightly-less-transparent bottom system tray to match? Everything else is perfect. Thanks!

hmmmm........ but if everything wasnt totally transparent it wouldn't be ghost! This may be a perfect time for you to have a go at doing a gnome-shell theme! I only started because I couldn't find exactly what I wanted and I found that altering and tweaking the gnome-shell CSS file is a lot more intuitive than it first looks. have a go I'd say, if you do and you need a hand you can always message me!
