CleanGlass Aero by Eoin CleanGlass Aero by Eoin
A WIP port of lassekongo83's excellent CleanGlass VS to Vista.

This was made much easier thank to the new (though not free) VistaStyleBuilder.

This mod/port is released under the CC license as lassekongo83's original XP theme as per the terms of that license.

Big update 7th June 2009: Large number of rough edges cleaned up. Segoe UI alt. font version also included.

Problem? I think mine's fucked up or something.

As you can see, Min/Max/Close buttons are too small. Also, I cannot see any transparency. Is there supposed to be some transparency?

Seems to be displaying in Basic rather than Aero for you. Both show up in the Appearance Settings with an identical preview picture.

Try switching back to the Vista default Aero theme and then select the Aero option with the CleanGlass image.

Vista make this process trickery than it was on XP unfortunately :(

Exactly how do I do this? I switched to Vista default Aero theme, and that worked out okay, but I couldn't see any of the preview images belonging to this theme. I had to go to C:/Windows/Resources/Themes/CleanGlass_Aero_by_Eoin/ and double-click either CGlassB or CGlassB Segoe UI for it to appear on the list as Aero CleanGlass Style below High Contrast #2, with the right preview image. However, applying it results in the screenshot I gave you.

Ah ok I see now. Name it's folder inside 'Resources' to be 'CGlassB'. Then it's preview image should show up.

Would you mind moving the startmenu to the left a bit? That gap is a bit strange in aero mode. The rest is great.

Do you plan to finish this great theme ?
It would be great if you, at least, add the blinking in the taskbar (when someone talk to you on WLM,Xfire,Steam, whatever for example). Sadly, I gave up using this theme because of that T_T.

What font size did you change to? I could include it as an alternative for everyone to have if you wish.

This is just about the first usable VS I've seen for Vista.

I'm missing the "notification" (usually flashing taskbar) when a program wants attention though, any chance that might be added?

An alternative colour scheme certainly isn't out of the question.

I must say though it's only after attempting a port like this have I gotten to glimpse the effort it must take to do themes from scratch.

For artists/themers who put the effort into offering multiple colour choices, on top of all ready 100% original artwork themes, my respect and admiration has gone up hugely.

great por indeed :+fav:

there's only two things that need changing in my POV. the control panel sidebar and adding a highlight for the taskbar buttons...using WLM with this VS has been a bit complicated because if I don't hear the message coming, then I won't know that there are any new messages unless I check, because the button for the conversation doesn't change its appearence in any way;)

other than that, it's great, don't change anything else and keep more of them coming:)

Good shit!! Using it now, we need more work friendly visual styles and not just graphics bloated/transparent-but-nothing-else-styles!

Few things that bothers me though...

- The font is way too cramped. A font with a little more space between the letters would be easier on the eyes.
- The minimize, maximize and close buttons seems too big for the VS, I'd like to see them smaller in size.
- The control panel sidebar background image remains the same as original and seems horribly out of place color wise.

Other than that, good fucking port. Looking forward to seeing more ports from lassekongo coming your way. As I said, we need more visual styles that you want to keep for more than 1 day and that are easy to look at and lassekongo does have those visual styles, too bad it's for XP though. Adding you to the watch.

Thanks for the constructive points. I agree especially about the Vista artwork colours which remain and look out of place but it's a monster undertaking to achieve a fully comprehensive re-styling of Vista.

One Comment :

you should replace the one pixel taskbar line that you put in black : make it light blue like in the lassekongo one.

Please

Mistakes crept in when many of the files needed small tweaks. I also think the black 1 pixel border around the window frames needs removing too.

Is it possible to port the theme in basic style, like how psychob ported SlanXP3 to basic style? I do like the port you done but I prefer the original window buttons as seen in the Display Properties thumbnail.
