XpGnome – Make Linux Look like Windows XP

Make Gnome look like XP by running this simple script:

Just download the tar.gz file, Right-click it and select “Extract Here”, then run the “InstallXpGnome.sh” by double-clicking it and choosing “Run”!

Changes: Icons, GTK, Metacity, Splash, GDM Theme, Mouse Cursor, Panel Background, Desktop Background, Visible Desktop Icons, Nautilus Tree View, Toolbar to Icons only. Deletes all GNOME Panels and adds a new one at bottom with Start Menu, Show Desktop, Window Switcher, Notification Area, Volume Control and Clock.

Settings are saved and can be reverted by running the Restore_Settings.sh script in the restore folder
