I know this theme is pretty old, but it's still my favorite.

Any chance of getting it updated to Gtk3? Evolution is butt-ugly.

Very nice theme. The dark blue complements the Black-Red icon theme nicely, and I highly recommend it as an icon set.

Slyd also works well as a matching icon theme, and has better coverage of all the icons than Black-Red.

I love it! It is my favorite!
Of course some issue with Firefox...
(I'm using a custom userContent.css...)
And still some Apps show black text on the dark button (Ubuntu Software Center Install and other buttons)

I am using the buuf-deuce icons with it...

AND I LOVE IT!!! TRIED MANY OTHER DARK THEMES THIS IS THE BEST BABY!!!

Thanks a lot to the author!

Its only very small but when you have a inactive maximised window it gets a small white line in the top left corner of its metacity theme

I love this theme...
here is a fix for it...

on metacity file: metacity-theme-1.xml

original:
<draw_ops name="draw_title_tile_inactive_normal_maximized">
<image filename="max-inactive.png" x="0" y="0" width="object_width" height="height" />
<image filename="title-inactive.png" fill_type="tile" x="9" y="0" width="width " height="height"/>
<image filename="max-inactive.png" x="width - object_width" y="0" width="object_width" height="height"/>
</draw_ops>


change:
<draw_ops name="draw_title_tile_inactive_normal_maximized">
<image filename="title-inactive.png" fill_type="tile" x="0" y="0" width="width " height="height"/>
</draw_ops>

Hi thankyou for a very nice, professional new theme. By way of suggestion if you ever feel like remixing it i would love to see a shade of orange substituted for the blue to give it a ubuntu feel.Thanks again

nice theme - too bad it's basically unusable because it turns browser text boxes black with dark text so you can't read anything. nice try, though.

What you all could do is what i did,
simply get the HumanAzul2 icon theme.
With the Smoked Glass theme up and running you go:
Smoked Glass >> Adjust >>> Icons and select the HumazAzu2 iconset.

And final,you save the whole edited Smoked Glass theme with the icons and all. This is what i did and it worked.

Here is the link for the icons: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=37099

On this theme, most of my text boxes are black with a dark colored font...same with dialog boxes. Can you change the font color to a lighter shade so I can actually read them?

I love this theme... but what I don't love is how it shades some form backgrounds black on webpages (like gmail) in firefox, and on gaim as well.

There are only a couple of points that i will make. First, could you please make/find better icons that suit the theme. It is beautiful, but i think that the icons let it down slightly and i am unable to find one that suits it perfectly.

Last: on a couple of website (www.vodafone.ie is the only one i can think of at the moment) the text box appears in black and so does the text. For anything to be seen, it has to be highlighted. I will put up with that as this is such a good theme but i would appreciate it if you could look into that.

Thanks again for a great theme.

I've found the glass icons icon theme set REALLY looks good with this one.

fair enough, but i would prefer if they had a bit of a dark blue tint to them. They seem a bit stark against the dark background for me.

i just get a solid dark-blue colour for toolbars, buttons, widgets, and controls, unlike the blue gradient in the screenshot. i am using gnome theme-manager in ubuntu edgy. the rest of it works, like the window borders, colours, panel background, etc.

So im using Fedora Core 4 with the latest kernel and jada jada jada. The problem is OpenOffice 2.0, Impress won't work properly with a dark theme. I think it has something to do with the fact that the "paper" wich you are writing on in the program turns black to. So i just wondered if anyone know how to fix this problem. Or can you please make a simillar theme with white textbox and main fraims? Thanx in advance for any answers

PS. I love this theme :)

I always planned to make a lighter version of it; I just got busy with other stuff.

Now that the semester is over, I'll try to get the lighter versions done.

Sorry about the wait :)
