2.2.2 probably the last update, this should
fix the message of an engine "" not installed
I can't try it myself if it works (since I don't have
gnome installed) so if anyone would be kind
to let me know if it works, it would be kind :)
This will probably be my last fix as I'm not on
gnome anymore.

2.2.1 Fixed my previous F**kup. (at least I hope so)
(it's been tested on ubunut 7.10). If anyone still
has any kind of problem please be so kind and let me
know!

I was thinking that when (if) cimi releases the murrine engine with argb support, you could try to use that to make your menubars transparent, so it still feels like theyre part of the titlebar when the titlebar is transparent. just a thought. like i said earlier, i less-than-three your themes, particularly this one.

Yeah! that is something I really would love
to do! However, menubar uses pixmap engine
and therefor it's impossible to to that...
That is something I've been wanting to implement
since I made this theme :)

If I found out a way I will ofc implement it
but as it looks now , impossible.

Thanks for suggesting tho!

Hey Robert, congratulations on being chosen as the PCLinuxOS theme! I was looking at some screenshots over at The Coding Studio, and thought I recognized your theme. So I came back here to compare and make sure, and saw your announcement.

Most of us already recognized how excellent your themes are, but it is nice to see you get this type of "endorsement" as well.

the mail :D I never expected anything like
this!

Hope you are doing well twrock! any themes
of your own coming up????

No, I'm not likely to create any completely new themes. I don't have the artistic talent, so I basically just enjoy "tweaking".

I was working on something based on a theme I created for my Palm OS device, but I couldn't get things to look good enough in a complete GTK theme to make me happy. (Palm themes are significantly less complicated.)

Well... you know a lot about coding...gtkrc
if you don't like editing pixmaps or other
graphics I think you should try out making
a theme by using other engines.. like
aurora and murrine engines, you can make
things look pretty awesome and to your liking
with those two, think about it!

Thanks again!

Nah, I decided to leave the font color like it is after I switched to a different font style. Looks perfect for me now.

Thanks for the offer though. I've been using your theme (along with desktop effects) to make all my Windows and Mac using friends jealous for the last few days.

Hey, thanks for pointing out the Firefox fix. I installed it simply by dragging and dropping the archive into the theme editor so I didn't notice it was in your instructions, which worked perfectly.

The font thing I was referring to was just sort of everything: the date and time, the window title in the task bar, the menu in open windows (File, Edit, View, etc.) But it's really just a preference and not a problem, really. I'm probably going to change the font Ubuntu uses anyway, so I wouldn't worry about it. Seemed like a bigger deal last night when it was dark and I was tired.

Thanks a lot for the help.

Great! Thanks!

Well, I had it all white (#ffffff) first...
but that was too much contrast for me (it's
hard to read if it's too much contrast)
so I took the contrast down a little
(I'm pretty happy with it myself now)
if you want to change it I can help you
with that :)

I just made an account here so I could let you know I really dig this theme. I'm new to linux and was looking for a dark theme and this is the best one I've seen so far.

That said, I have the same complaint that someone mentioned before (and apparently resolved) with the Firefox URL drop box having black text on a black background. If you mouse over it you can read it, but it's still a little annoying. Some of the fonts might look a little better if they were a shade whiter as well. But minor complaints only.

Great work, thanks a lot for this. Looking forward to the new version you mentioned.

Thanks a lot!!

If you followed my install instructions
the drop down on firefox should be fine...
also, I just checked firefox 3 beta and they
seem to have fixed the bug there
now so that works too (at least for me).

What font isn't white enough for you?

Your theme is simply awesome. But for some reason, the taskbar for my ubuntu 7.04 is not transparent. I installed Compiz Fusion and applied your theme, but it's not transparent. The same happened when I tried to use another gtk2 theme that was supposed to have a transparent taskbar.

Also, I have Compiz Settings Manager, but I don't have System->Prefs->Advanced desktop effects settings which I think is the problem. Is this because I need gutsy or herron?

Thank you very much!!!

If you have compiz loaded just move the
mouse cursor over the panel, hold down
the button "Alt" then scroll downwards on
the scrollbutton... scroll until it's transparent
enough for you ;)

Hope this helps!

About that, it seems to only work until I restart the computer or just x in gnome, it goes back to not being transparent again. Is there a way to make it permanent?

Report

TheRob

Yeah, just add (name=gnome-panel)
in the opacity settings in ccsm, set it to
something between 80 - 90... if below 80 it's
too transparent (well that's my opinion....)
try different values :)

Hope this helps!

Thanks!
