Had to be done! The purpose of this theme is to make you confused about where deviantART ends and your OS begins, every element in the theme is an adaptation of a similar(ish) element on the website, for instance the modal dialogs are modelled on art submission modal dialogs and all buttons are dA buttons. Suggestions on how to make everyone more confused are very welcome!

For best effect you need to add the ttf-mscorefonts package as the deviantART website (and so the theme) relies on MS fonts Verdana and Trebuchet. If you don't have these fonts installed a fallback font will be used instead and it won't look as deviantARTy (then again, neither does the website in your browser, so maybe you won't notice).

In Ubuntu/Mint:
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

In fedora:
Get the excellent Fedora Utils ([link]) which includes an option to install mscorefonts.

SADLY Gnome 3.6 doesn't, like the previous versions, support extension styling within a custom theme, so all your extensions are gonna look weird. Complaints can be directed at Gnome HQ :)

Made with awesome free software:
- Geany
- Meld
- Inkscape
- Gimp

- satya164 (favourite internet person) for crucial troubleshooting.
- lassekongo83 whose well structured and constantly updated Zukitwo theme formed the basis of this theme.
- Faenza icons by tiheum

Oct-12-2012: Gnome 3.6 support
Jul-13-2012: For some reason I based the app filter on the watchers list in profiles and not on the category browse tree - it now shares style with the category tree. Also improved look of focused overview icons.

Thanks for the DD :)
Theme update coming later this week!
