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.
