This is a mod of the wonderful Nion theme, by =lassekongo83
. He makes nice minimal Visual Styles, but I always end up modding them in some way. When he released this and I ended up modding it, I knew that people would be asking for me to share it if I posted a screenshot of my desktop.
Please keep in mind that I originally modded this to suit my own needs. Once I realized that I would probably end up releasing it, I tried my best to make all of the mods consistent throughout. It took me a few hours to do all of these changes, and the program I used can be found here: [link]
Let me know if there are any bugs, and I will try my best to fix them.
