What theme is being used there?  Does it come with Fedora, or can it be found elsewhere?

Thanks!

Hi,

the theme you can see on the installation-screenshots is the standard Fedora theme. The black theme that I used for the other screenshots is a customized version of the theme "SlicknesS" from gnome-look.org. I can send it to you if you give me your email address.

Best regards,

Olli

I have never needed to turn off SELinux on desktops. I don't know what kind of problems are being referred to. If there is a SELinux problem with a Fedora package file a bug.

First off great tutorial as always.  What is that desktop theme?  In the begining you started off with a glassy desktop theme.  When I installed it I didn't get that theme. 

From: noogz at: 2008-11-26 20:34:14

yes, i'd love to know the themes you used there, too.

 

From: Micha at: 2008-12-28 14:18:32

I found the theme ;)

Look at www.gnome-look.org and search for 'SlicknesS'. You'll find this (and some modificated) theme for GTK and Berly (Emerald).
