ACYL Icons for AllGray by Sarai-the-Geek
ACYL Icons for AllGray
I am quite sad to learn of the "end" of Crunchbang- it's been my favorite linux OS for years now and it's really the only OS I feel so comfortable on that I can stop tinkering and just WORK. I have to say with all the homework piling up around me (p.s. anyone want to write a paper about intrauterine transfusion?) that is such a blessing.

That said, the spirit of #! will live on. I am curious to see what the community will come up with- which brings me to this icon set. I was contacted by a fellow member of the #! forums for permission to use AllGray for Openbox in a distro (s)he is making based on #!. Quite flattering!

The way that the ACYL icons were packaged by noobslab made it difficult to package them into a distro. They also aren't fully compatible with lxappearance and other non-gnome environments. If you're using one of those and want to recreate the appearance in my screenshots you might be better served using this icon set. Of course the tradeoff is that they're no longer customizable. Have fun!
Steel Conky by Sarai-the-Geek
Steel Conky
Steel Conky is a simple monochromatic conky setup designed to match my AllGray Openbox and GTK themes. It works best with light backgrounds.

It's based on Cowon Conky and uses the Aller font, which is included.

I hope you enjoy it!
AllGray for Openbox by Sarai-the-Geek
AllGray for Openbox
I had a hard time finding a theme I liked for Openbox when I installed Crunchbang. I love flat, minimalist themes with no silly gradients, flashy rounded edges, or worst of all, color! I've spent a lot of time tweaking and grayscaling and mashing together a couple of different themes (Elegant Brit and Moka, primarily) and I think this theme is ready for its closeup. Hopefully it finds its way to others who have similar design taste to me.

I have included a gtk2 (gtk3 may be forthcoming if there is interest- I haven't needed it) and openbox themes as well as a theme for xfce notify.

This theme requires the pixbuf engine so please be sure to have that. Any issues please let me know!

03/09/15 - The version 2 patch includes support for GTK3 as well as improved theming in the chrome browser. If you're using chrome, make sure you set it to inherit the gtk theme.

3/14/15 - An additional small patch includes a high contrast version identical to the normal but with lighter text in the titlebar and panel, to make it easier on the eyes. Preview image shows normal version.

It's been literally four years since I logged onto deviantart but I got it in my mind today that I ought to. I'd been too busy with school of late to dedicate too much energy to theming and such. BUT, I graduated this summer and all of a sudden even working full time I have more time than I could possibly know what to do with. It's also ungodly cold outside and I'd rather die than move from this spot by the fireplace.

So have a screenshot. I'm on crunchbang waldorf these days, a fully fledged married college-educated gainfully-employed contemplating-motherhood person and I still enjoy taking pictures of my computer desktop and sharing it with other people. What an odd world we live in.

Thank you amiegirl17 for your lovely COMPLETELY SAFE FOR WORK fanart that graces my background, (as seen here: Fullmetal and Flame) you have no idea the THINGS I have seen while looking for it. Things that can't be unseen. Incestuous things. That is all that will be said about that. You are awesome amiegirl17 so keep rocking it.

The gtk theme is a modification of Elegant Brit and the openbox theme is a modification of Moka. The conky is a modification of Cowon Conky. I really like modifying things. 

I like the way things look right this sec and if there is interest, I would be willing to package it all up as a theme. I am tentatively calling it AllGray and as noted above I can take barely any credit for it at all.

Thank you for reading this jumbled rambling page and I hope you have a lovely day.

I can't figure out if I should check that I am an artist or not. It seems pretentious. Maybe I'd better just go back to bed.
