How do I install this GnoMenu Theme

Asked by Todd Jasinski on 2010-07-28


I am trying to get this panel theme working correctly with Ubuntu 10.04.

I installed the GnoMenu and I can get the button to display but the top is cut off because its too big for the panel. How do I apply this this theme to the rest of the panel and buttons? I want my panel to look just like the one in this picture.

I'm still new to Linux and need step by step instructions.

In order to use Orb Styled Buttons you need to have compiz-fusion activated.

How do I do that? I have a program called CompizConfig Settings Manager installed. Is that related to compiz-fusion?

That would be one way. You can also turn on compiz affects through the appearance dialog in the control center as well. Once you have compiz running the the top of the orb button will show. (You may have to logout and back in to see it.)

Okay. I got the button to display correctly. I went to Appearance -> Visual Effects. Normal or Extra need to be selected. Now I just need to get the glossy black background behind the Ubuntu Orb logo to be applied to the rest of the panel (as in the picture in the link above). Do you know how to do that?

Right click on the gnome-panel (in an open area) and select Properties. Click on the Background Tab, select the Background image; radio button then select the panel image you wish to use. However, you usually will find better results using a theme that gives that appearance in the panel.
