    You may have to run the CRX Theme Creator in Wine.
    But you can manually build themes with any Image Editor (Gimp) and any Text Editor (gedit).
    All you really need is Chrome installed and the editors.

    Or you can go as far as I did, and run WinXP in VirtualBox, using Photoshop and Notepad++. It does help to install GuessEditions as well, for full screen use.

    Either way you go, here is some info that may help.
