Dusty Mint GTK+ Theme by DLKreations Dusty Mint GTK+ Theme by DLKreations
This is my take on the ever famous Dust theme.

I was impressed with the simplicity and elegance of the original Dust theme but thought that it would look pretty cool with at Minty take on it. This is the result.

Included is a Metacity theme, but I included the bordered one from the Dust Extras download.

For those who use Mint, I included a new menu button, which is in the gtk folder. I also made the taskbar png image a bit more transparent for those who will use it. It is included as well.

It uses as default the LinuxMint icon theme, as I know people use their own icon themes and generally don't like the default ones.

It uses Clearlooks and Murrine as the original Dust theme uses, so there shouldn't be any incompatibility issues.

Install instructions: Extract the zip anywhere you wish; open your Appearance settings, click the Theme tab, and drag and drop the "tar.gz" file into the open window.

I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.

I accept no responsibility to your system should any unforeseen issues arise. There shouldn't be a problem though.

Thank you very much. I can't take all the credit though. The original Dust creator deserves all the accolades for this.

In fact the Dust theme will be included in the Jaunty release!
