This is my new Ubuntu GNOME Theme. It's called SummerRebirth because it was started in early September, when the melancholy rising from the end of the summer and the desire to return backward for two or three month were strong. Now it's a little nonsense, but the name was already decided!

In the downloadable archive there are GTK&Metacity theme, Conky configuration files, CoverGloobus theme, AWN theme, and backgrounds for most popular resolutions.

Description & infos:
  • GTK Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): it uses a mix between equinox engine, pixmap engine and murrine engine. Some things are kept from other gtk themes, but I don't remember whic themes!

  • Window Manager Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): in the archive, there are three different metacity themes, but the best for me is this (that is a modification of another metacity theme that I don't remember)

  • Icon Theme: AwOken, made by me (released version 1.4! :D). Folders are new s11 folders by [link] , that will be present in the next 1.5 version. For me, with these folders I reached perfection.

  • Covergloobus Theme: SummerRebirth (mine): it's present in the download archive

  • Wallpaper: original wallpaper is here [link] . In the downloadable archive there are modified backgrounds for 1366x768, 1024x600, 1280x1024, 1280x800, 1440x900, 1600x900 screen resolutions.

  • Dock at the right: avant-window-navigator

  • Notes: At the bottom there is a conky that shows essential informations (like new mails, or weather). In the top-right part of the desktop there are a little conky showing a bar that displays battery charging status, and CoverGloobus. In second and third desktop there are three conky popup, that popups to show other informations:
    * calendar: shows the calendar and uses a python script that prints for each month what has to be done reading from a text file located in my /home. It gives the possibility to insert notes in various colours, and for each month in the year;
    * cpu: it describes himself;
    * forecasts: it describes himself;

On your Checkcal script. What is it supposed to display? Yes I know the calendar. But is it supposed to display notes? or whatever things you have in your Evolution Calendar.

Cause right now I have added a my google calendar to Evolution Calendar. Anyways when I open the checkcal conky script nothing shows up from notes, my personal calendar or my google calendar.

Also your checkmem clickable conky script doesn't come up at all. nothing happens

Checkcal it's supposed to show notes from a file, but it's different from Evolution Calendar or Google Calendar (I'm not so great with programming to do so :) ).

Checkmem doesn't show anything probably because you haven't 4CPU as my computer has.

However, here [link] there's official thread related to this theme on ubuntuforums. Read what is written inside it, this will surely help you! And if not, write into it and I'll reply to you.. :)
