roberTO's themes can be found here - his are some of the best gnome themes available.

I concur. Some of my favourite themes are from roberTO. Keep up the good work roberTO :)

FVWM Beginner's Guide

Warning: Not for the faint of heart!

While the title suggests otherwise, .fvwm2rc's can take a while to get used to. The sample code provided will give you a useable (but ugly) desktop. Make sure you read the documentation thoroughly before attempting to create your own theme from scratch. It's better to ignore the snippets that you've obtained throughout the years, and to actually understand the inner workings of Fvwm.

Have fun!

As all of you have noticed, Gooeylinux has been dead. Mike and I have become very busy in recent months, and have had neither the time nor the motivation to continue running the forum. Mike started this site as a haven for linux users from other communities, and I feel that we've done that. But there are at this point many other places one can turn to for Linux GUI customization, and forums need a very strong body of members contributing to survive. Gooeylinux was a fun, but failed experiment.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the site. We met lots of interesting people, and I hope we helped some people as well. The IRC channel (#gooeylinux - irc.freenode.net) will stay open, so feel free to join us there. Also, all the subprojects of gooeylinux will remain available. Archives of the forum will appear shortly. If you have any comments/questions, email me.

Tinkering and hacking others themes is necessary to really get it. Docs are very limited. So get stuff and hack! That's what I did.

you need images for pixmap themes and practice?

the .wba extension is seen as a zip type by file-roller ;)

Errors
Whether gtk, metacity, or icon theming, errors may or may not be printed in vt1 (Ctrl+Alt+F1) depending on the distro you use. Mandrake used to, but doesn't seem to anymore. Debian's and Fedora do. You can easily get the errors by running
gnome-theme-manager
in an X terminal (Gnome Terminal, Aterm, Eterm, Xterm, rxvt etc....).

Metacity
Metacity has a nice tool. The
metacity-theme-viewer
Run it from an X terminal;
metacity-theme-viewer name_of_metacity_theme
[example]metacity-theme-viewer d3a
and you can find out how fast it loads and errors pointing to any problems with loading the theme. It opens a gui to show you all the different aspects of the theme.

Scalable Vector Graphics
This is what I'm currently interested in and researching. Instead of pixmap, you can make svg/gtk and metacity themes, and of course icon themes.
