Tu tema se ve hermoso, pero por algun extraño motivo no puedo hacer que me funcione.

En realidad, creo que todo funciona menos la decoracion de ventanas.
Se ve asì:

Pude notar que en vez se seleccionar yellowstone, selecciona la ultima decoracion seleccionada. (en el caso del screenshoot, era "Simple", porque estaba probando si el resto funcionaban)

Podrias ayudarme?
Ah, although I'm pretty sure that you speak spanish, i can also write in english n.n

Ah no para, ya lo arregle.

Creo que fue porque cuando cree la carpeta .themes la cree con privilegios de administrador. De todas formas no estoy seguro porque borre todo y empecé desde cero, asi que pudo haber sido cualquier otra cosa xD

Gracias por el tema, funciona perfecto.

Hi, i love your theme, do you have a copy of Ver 1.0? I prefer the windows button less bigger, or could you tell me how to modify this?. Thanks

This is a very good theme already, but you should try to add transparency! It would make this look just like yosemite!
