Porting BlueCurve to Slackware 9.0


Hi!

I'm an eye candy fanatic and I would like to know if it is possible to port the BlueCurve look to Slack 9.0 . It's just a matter of copying the icons, right? Or does it envolve patching some programs? Please let me know.

Thanks!

Cheers,

Lightbulb The look...

It's the "whole new desktop experience". Polished graphics, Mac OS X envy-causing stuff... Check it out :

Yeh, that's gnome. Would it be possible for you to download bluecurve and just replace your X server?

No because bluecurve is a theme not an X server.

Find freecurve-artwork-blah-blah.i586.rpm, convert it to *.tgz and open it in 'mc'. Ignore KDE stuff and copy all other files in their respective directories.
You may also can take a look at art.gnome.org in addition.
