Here's my little Christmas present to the Cairo community. It's a simple theme that mimics the look of the default Gnome Shell panel. Same background, same font, just spiced up with some Cairo-Dock animations. I used Gnome Scalable icons (same ones used in the panel), so you can choose new icons for your own programs if you have this icon set, which, btw, comes default with Gnome Shell. If you don't, I've kindly included the icon set as a tarball you can download. Open your archive manager as root and extract to /usr/share/icons/gnome. This is my first theme, so suggestions are welcome. Enjoy!

thanks
although I'd like to see what would be possible to do with Cairo-Dock only (without the gnome-panel)

What do you mean? Cairo-Dock can function as a decent task bar/manager on its own. Pretty much anything you already can do I guess...

Thank you for this present

Yes but it's not the Gnome Panel, it's the panel of Gnome-Shell

Yeah the whole thing is part of Gnome Shell. Anyway, like I said before, any suggestions are welcome, thanks.

It's just by curiosity: why do you place it on the bottom and not on the left of the screen just like the dock of Gnome-Shell?

Just a personal preference. Docks have traditionally been placed at the bottom, even back to Windows 1's, if you see it as a dock.

Yes I understand and my dock is also placed at the bottom. But now, screen are larger and this is the reason why Gnome-Shell's dock is placed on the left of the screen.

Doesn't make much since. Most people have widescreen monitors, which gives more horizontal room, which is where the dock should be to allow more items. Yet DE's like Unity place it at the left and call it "optimized for netbooks." :S
Besides, Gnome-Shell's "dock" only shows when you go into overview mode.

Is anybody having problems installing this? This theme doesn't apply when I click the button...

does it mean you can't remove it ?

interesting discussion, although I quite like to have a left dock with main launchers + taskbar, and another dock on top/bottom with more items.
that's ok as long as you have few launchers and windows opened at once of course.

also, having a single dock is also a valide choice (everything in a single location).

I didn't try to install it yet, but I think you can copy/paste URL into the text entry of the themes-manager, and apply.
or maybe the tarball needs to be on the disk but I don't think so.
