Whit-e an elementary OS theme by kxmylo Whit-e an elementary OS theme by kxmylo
a light GTK3 theme for elementary os Luna.

the icon theme: [link]

To change gala window buttons you have to open dconf-tools from slingshot and navigate trough org.pantheon.desktop.gala.appearance and inside the appearance box type: whit-e

If you instead want to use the Leon (Mac lion copy) buttons you have to change the folder name "metacity-1 Lion" to "metacity-1" and backup or change the name of the previous one. Then you set the Button.Layout option as: close,minimize,menu:maximize or close,minimize,maximize:

as you prefer ordering the icons.

Fully white
bigger window controls
Sidebar clear color
Selected items color more soft than the original elementary theme
transparent panel, so it will look messed up with white wallpapers
Gala workspaces background (you can use the image you like, just replace the image file "ToolbarDark.jpg" on whit-e/gtk-3.0/assets/
Rounded entry and checkboxes
rounded maximized window

the icon theme is a mix of elementary-faenza-hycon, i uploaded a zip here: [link] this version is lacking some fixes and adds i've made recently, i'll update it later, i don't know when.

Full support for dark theme
rounded dark bottom toolbar buttons
other small fixes like border colors

statusbar borders clearer
bottomtoolbar button with more padding and wiht no borders
some fixes

This theme is great!
But the transparent panel is too much for Me... where can I edit to set custom transparency level?
Maybe in panel.css ?

Thanks and great job!

yes, in the apps.css file on the panel section

How can you make folders on your Plank?

create a folder with the links of the apps (.desktop) and then drag and drop that folder to the dock.
