Monocle for CoverGloobus by larryni Monocle for CoverGloobus by larryni
OMG! Ubuntu's Joey Sneddon wrote that "monocle CoverGloobus theme may just be the most formal app theme. ever."

I got the idea for this theme when I saw Gabriella Denizot's simple but beautiful Classy wallpaper. Gabriella kindly gave me permission to use it.

I kept with the simple theme, there are no player controls apart from(*see below) for the seekbar for which I added a small ball to the monocle's chain.

The font I used is Pushkin by west on gnome-look.org, download it here.

It looks best on a plain wallpaper, or just use a plain background colour instead. You can play with the opacity of the lens overlay in the theme's xml file.

Try also commenting out the line for nocover.png - the background shining through the lens is rather nice ;)

Update: some people asked about player controls - you can now use the moustache to go back/forward in your playlist, and the monocle lens to pause/play. I tried to keep them quite subtle. Let me know what you think.

Thanks man, glad you do. The opinion seems to be split over the design - you either love it or hate it. I simply had fun making it. And love it ;)

Cheers for the fav :thumbsup::)
