    hugmenot:
    bevel smells like ’80s
    The 80s? The 80s?? Bwahahaha! What I remember from the 80s is an Apple store with funky boxen the size of carry-on luggage and dinky screens where you could see your BASIC programs. And I remember spending way too much time in front of black terminals with white or green type.

    Bevels! We would have killed for bevels. (Oh, and yes, the snow was three feet deep because global warming wasn't so bad yet.)

    P.S. kyleabaker's shadow effect is very nice!

    Thanks. If someone can tell me where this "thumbnail_frame.png" file can be found on my computer then I'll start tweaking until I get it like the picture I posted and link it here.

    Anyone know the location of the image file that they use for these thumbnail frames is?

    EDIT:
    Nevermind, I've found them, but there are two:
    Code:
    cd /
    sudo find . -iname "*thumbnail_frame.png" -print
    Code:
    ./usr/share/pixmaps/gsearchtool/thumbnail_frame.png
    ./usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png
    I'll start tweaking these and post my results when I get it looking like the screenshot.. wish me luck.

    I was thinking of Motif and CDE.

    Ok, I've got a working thumbnail_frame.png image. I will work on it a little more and polish it up, but in the mean time, if you want to test it out just do the following.

    Backup the original file using:
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png thumbnail_frame.png.bak

    Install mine:
    Code:
    wget http://a.imageshack.us/img651/8666/thumbnailframe.png
    sudo mv thumbnailframe.png /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png
    killall nautilus

    Restore to the original again:
    Code:
    sudo mv /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png thumbnailframe.png
    sudo mv thumbnail_frame.png.bak /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png
    killall nautilus
    If you need the original, I've uploaded it here:
    http://a.imageshack.us/img651/5790/thumbnailframey.png

    Let me know how it works for you. Here is an actual screenshot of it working for me (click to view the full size)..


    I'm gonna tweak the thumbnail_frame.png to lighten the shadow a bit, but I'll post it as well.

    Same rules for backing up and restoring the original image.

    If you want the (almost) exact style that I had in the first screenshots I posted on page 1, then do the following which installs a slightly modified image from the one above.

    Open a terminal and copy/paste the following..

    Install mine:
    Code:
    wget http://a.imageshack.us/img135/8666/thumbnailframe.png
    sudo mv thumbnailframe.png /usr/share/pixmaps/nautilus/thumbnail_frame.png
    killall nautilus
    Enjoy guys! I like it a lot already!

    Thanks for that, I have modified your frame, to a thinner more lighter shadow, which I prefer.
