reNIX (for UNITY and GS) by tgraeca84 reNIX (for UNITY and GS) by tgraeca84
Finally updated to Gnome 3.6! Thanks to strycore, who has done it possible and now he is fixing minor issues.

A squared variation of the unity and metacity theme GTKdroid packaged with the GTK3 theme NIX. I have also included an alternative metacity theme for Gnome Shell based on Nööp theme. All credits to the original authors.

Hello, I'm running Gnome Shell 3.6.2 and these prevented me to get the metacity theme working :

In "renix-gtk-master/metacity-1/metacity-theme-3.xml"
Line 28 : <frame_geometry name="normal" title_scale="medium" rounded_top_left="flase" rounded_top_right="false"> ^

Lines 15,122 : value="blend/#2627290/gtk:bg[NORMAL]/0.5" , color="#2627290"
^ ^
This is from the latest version available the moment I'm writing this.
Tch... complete mess I meant the "flase" value for Line 28 and the non-existent "#2627290" for lines 15 and 122.

Nice shot :)
beautiful theme, but there are some minor bugs with ubuntu 12.10 (gs, gtk3; unity don't know). i hope this can be fixed. thank you for the nice theme
Yes I know. Strycore is now doing all the work, porting it to gtk3 and fixing bugs. There are not noticed problems whith Unity, but because of the upgrade to Gnome 3.6, Gnome Shell theme could be broken. But, you can use this nice GS theme for now [link]

Thanks for your comment!
i like this theme, but with gnome 3.6 in ubuntu 12.10 the close and minimize are not as shown.
Gnome shell or Unity?
This is one of my favorite themes I've ever used on Linux. I'm sick of all the newer themes being variations of just grey.

I'll be looking for some info on GTK 3.6 and how to port it, but considering the direction the GNOME devs are going, they'll probably purposely break all themes in the next GTK update anyway.
Thank you Ershio. Yes, I suspect the same about future GNOME releases. I honestly think that GNOME devs have lost the point. GNOME is a desktop environment, not a distro. It should be more long term stable and a lot more customizable.

Anyway, I would update the theme if I knew how to.
