Description:

UPDATE: The download link is down and I don't have another copy anymore. There is a much better Windows 7 theme here:
http://opendesktop.org/content/show.php/Win2-7%28Pixmap%29?content=118227

My first theme! This theme is based on Nemmeth`s `Windows 7 basic theme lookalike` http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Windows+7+basic+theme+lookalike?content=106601.

I added a Windows 7 cursor theme (not mine) and a Windows 7 icon theme (not mine).

HOW TO INSTALL:

1: Download the .tar.gz file.
2: Right-click on your desktop and select `Change Desktop Background`.
3: Select `Theme`, then drag and drop the file in.
4: Then click `Customise` and select the themes.
5: Delete the top Gnome panel.
6: Raise the bottom panel to 40 pixels.
7: Install Gnomenu http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/HOW+TO+INSTALL+%22GNOMENU%22?content=108571
8: Install DockBarX http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/DockbarX?content=101604
9: Add Gnomenu to the panel and download this theme for it http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Windows+7+clone?content=104163
10: Apply the Gnomenu theme and button, if you don`t know, how google it.
11: Add DockBarX to the panel and select `new` as the theme.
12: Download a Emerald theme for Windows 7 (if you do not have emerald, enter: `sudo apt-get install emerald` in the terminal) you can find a Vista/7 theme on gnome-look.org.
13: Download Screenlets, enter: `sudo apt-get install screenlets` in the terminal, then open Screenlets Manager and place some screenlets on your desktop, and right click on them and click window then check `stay below`.

WHAT I CHANGED:
I fixed the: buttons, scrollbars, menus (barely), radio buttons, check-boxes, progress bars, tabs, and sliders. I replaced all of these (except the menu, that was just a little out of place) with screen shots from Windows.

Known problems:
1: The `up` and `down` scroll buttons do not appear when you move your cursor over the scroll-bar the way they do in Windows.
2: The windows are not transparent the way they are in Windows.
3: The file browser does not look the way it does in Windows.
4: The bottom Gnome panel is not transparent.
5: and some other minor details...

Please tell me if you know how to fix any of these problems. :)

My apologies. I completely misread.

I think it's because they all use the same source which offers the incorrect colour.

Maybe people should really create a theme by hand, in stead of using source material from a faulty theme.

Why start from scratch when you already have a theme that looks close to Windows 7.

That's true, but even so, you can create some parts from scratch if the source is not accurate enough.

That's what they call improvement.

no... It's really easy to change the menu colour its just a photo that I edit or replace, but what should go there??? It can't be transparent the way it is in Windows.
