Human for Windows by MarcoFiorilli Human for Windows by MarcoFiorilli
Human for Windows

Hi, this is my first release for a visual style :dance: (and probably the last consedering the time i've spent on it :faint:) so be kind! ;P
This style is based on ClearLooks by ~schmoove, i've changed many parts to make it more similar to the current Human theme of Ubuntu. I hope you like it! :D

This package includes:

• 5 color schemes: Orange, Blue, Green, Graphite and Purple
• Compact and Full Version
• Ubuntu and Windows Flags
• xFree Cursors
• 5 Wallpaper

How-To install the Visual style:

• Patch Windows with this [link]
• Extract and copy the Human folder in C:\WINDOWS\Resources\Themes
• Double click on Human.msstyles or choose the style from Display Properties -> Appearence and click Apply.

How-To install the xFree Cursor:

• Right click the Install.inf and choose Install.
• Go in your Control Panel -> Mouse -> Cursors and choose xFree Cursors.

For a complete porting of Ubuntu i also suggest:

Tango Patcher by ~vertigosity :+favlove:
Human theme for Firefox
Dapper Retouched for Opera
Tango Theme for WinRAR
Tango eMule Skin by ~schluepfer

:star: Final version: 1.23 :star:

Enjoy :wave:

Really nicely done, especially for a first VS! I like it. If I were still skinning my XP machine I'd consider this.

MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
This theme is only for Windows XP / 2003
karan13 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
visual style is not installing
karan13 Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2012
i can't apply theme

Actually it'd have been nicer if you didn't lose the "active window title" sometimes; i.e. when I start my computer, occasionally title disappears. To me, it looks like a bug.

A second thing is font for Common Tasks. It is always Tahoma. No matter if you choose Segoe UI in the Appearence panel or even change the system font from "regedit", it remains as Tahoma. It would be great if that also changed together with the visual style font...

Excellent !

This theme is derived from Luna, see the Microsoft copyright notice in the files. GPL-Themes have to be build from a clean base. Ideally we would have a converter for Qt/GTK themes.

Very nice theme! :)

BTW How did you get the top bar? (Applications, Places, etc) Please tell me! =D
MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
Thank you! I used TrueLaunchBar for that: [link]
Ruchir7 Featured By Owner Jul 14, 2011  Student General Artist
Thank you! :) I've used TrueLaunchBar before, but never thought of using it like the Ubuntu menu =D

Thanks again! :thanks:

Hi! It's probably the best theme out there!

But I've got a problem with it: in dialog boxes it is impossible to differentiate the default button from others. So I never know what is going to happen when I press Enter. Sadly, it's the only reason why I cannot use this theme. Is it a bug?

Oh, yeah! Ubuntu Crossover :love:
This is very good skin :D
grocal Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2010
Great theme which I've been using since... forever? :) Unfortunately I'm switching to Windows 7 in couple of days and, as far as I can see, there is no Win7 compatible version of that kind of theme. It would be hard to see your theme going away from my screen after those years. Hope you can make Win7 version one day...

Fantastic! Thanks for providing this. Works a treat, makes me feel right at home when using XP

we are waiting for new ubuntu light themes: ambiance and radiance.
redshojin Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2010
I dunno... for some reason this doesn't work for me... I think it may be that it doesn't have a Human.theme file that's supposed to sit outside the Human folder. I followed the install instructions, but it doesn't show up in the appearance section under properties, nor does double clicking the msstyles file work either.
Lefo Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be nice if someone could adjust this to look like the new Ubuntu "Dust" window look. Anybody else feel the same way?
kaztelli Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow man thankx for the skin! where do i find a good tutorial on web to make a skin of msstyle? if it doesnt exists, please make one!

Hi ~FioreSSj!

Great work! This is the best windows theme I ever seen. I use it for about half a year and totally happy with it!

Don't you plan to make it work in Windows 7? Their new visual style looks ugly compared to Ubuntu Human ;)
ForgeAus Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2009  Hobbyist Artist
just curious have you tried or do you know anyone who has tried sending a visual style (msstyle) to Microsoft to get it signed?... I know unsigned drivers require a hack/patch of uxtheme.dll for XP (if not windowblinds or other 3rd party desktop software), but I've only heard of about 3 (Luna, Royale and Zune) styles from microsoft themselves, and no others (including Watermark from Whistler, which is the one I personally use) that have been signed for general use on unpatched systems... afaik this should be similar to getting device drivers signed... (only microsoft don't give the user the choice to use unsigned msstyles)
MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Well, it should be really nice using our styles without hacking the file, but i think microsoft would never do such a thing, especially for a wicked linux theme :tux: :devil: :)
FredDie3785 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2009
Great theme. Now my wine apps looks like Human Ubu theme...
Thanks mate...
DarkZBoy Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
Is this for XP or Vista?
MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
It's for XP or Windows Server 2003.

MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Have you tried to click on the download button on the left?
xkrambler Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009
this theme is very usable, I love it and my parents and I used it till today.


MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
I'm glad you like it :)
wffurr Featured By Owner May 27, 2009
This is a fantastic style. Thank you so much. I particularly like the color choices and compact start menu. My coworkers are jealous. :)

However, I do have one problem. I used a program called Sizer that lets me set program windows to be particular sizes and locations on the screen. When I have them move to the top, there's a gap between the top of the title bar and the top of my screen.

I thought it was a bug with the program, but after poking into the style files with resource hacker, I think there's actually a transparent four pixels at the top of each program window.

Is that intentional? Is there some requirement for custom visual style captions to be the same height as the regular XP captions?
MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner May 27, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes it was made to make the topbar a little thinner.
There are style with more trasparent pixel and others (like de default luna) with no one.
ThoriumKnight Featured By Owner May 16, 2009
Wow! I was going to do something like this but I think I'll use this style instead.
AfzalivE Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist

MarcoFiorilli Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
I used TrueLaunchBar [link] :wave:
AfzalivE Featured By Owner Mar 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
