I found a way to make the font colors white in the OOo menubar.
A problem with this way is that the font color of many other menus also changes to white.

Anyway, here's what I found. Maybe someone will be able to make a definite fix with this.

It seems that OOo uses fg[NORMAL] to color the fonts in the menubar and to color the fonts in the menu's that drop down from there.

add the following to gtkrc of the theme

style "light-fonts"
{
fg[NORMAL] = "#FFF"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#000"
}

widget_class "*.<GtkMenuItem>*" style "light-fonts"

Very very nice theme!! One of the most beautiful i've seen.
You should only fix that problem in the properties window of the launchers on the panel (eeer, sorry for my english)

and i think the right place for userChrome.css is
~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxx.default/chrome/
(i think /etc/firefox is not a custom dir for firefox, at least i don't have it on gentoo)

regards and congratulations!

Just wanna say that I love it! I've only had two problems so far -- both of them common to dark themes. The first is with the title bar in openoffice and the second is with the 'Create Launcher' window being treated as a panel. Otherwise, it's, ... well, every elegant.

Thanks!

After decompressing, compress the elegance folder and use the theme manager to install it.

In the theme manager choose "Customize...". At the first tab (controls) choose "Elegance" and at the third tab (window border) choose again "Elegance". Then save theme.

Great theme! I've downloaded it and will use it. I just wonder, what icon-theme do you use? It looks good to the theme.
