Cool Retro 1980-90s Mac OS theme for Icewm?


Hi,

I would be glad to configure the icewm and gtk to a similar
retro computer:

http://eee701planetoid.files.wordpre...e-20111007.png

Maybe leafpad could be made similar to that...

If you heard of anythg in that direction, i.e. http://eee701planetoid.files.wordpre...e-20111007.png, please let us know.

thank you and kind regards,
X.

Unfortuntely what you want is getting harder and harder to find. The themes are not apparently being maintained anymore, and the monochrome version non-existant.

The newer, grey version, was available for years as a GTK+/GTK+2 theme called "Platinum", however last time I tried to find it for my iBook running Debian, all links ended in dead ends.

would you maybe have a screenshot?

(currently my theme looks like this)


But I particularly like the grey of the old good apple. was a great machine
I like for the eyes relaxing... the icons were cute
it was simple, specifically ideally made for reading wihtout being distracted !
People are so much un-efficiently working nowadays (buying things they dont need, reading things while they have to deal with urgent-important matters... and so on)

THat theme apparently has not been touched since 2006, and the author admits at that time it was still incomplete.

easy.

It appears to be a blog, themed to look like System 7 and below.

Hi Goumba,

Regarding platinium, with google, I also could not find it ... unfortunately.
I must say that the screenshot he gave looks really nice.

apps like this old good mac arent also availabe. maybe better to emulate directly the mac in linux
