Great theme, thanks!
But i've found issue with gnome-desktop-item-edit. It looks like a panel.

Hi,

I'm new to using GNOME themes so not sure where to look to try and fix this. I can install the theme and the window borders change correctly but the controls like sliders, menu bars etc. don't look like they do in the screenshots, they look like the standard ones which are built into GNOME (does that make any sense?)...

I did install the Murrine thing mentioned in the discussion but that hasn't helped. I'm running Ubuntu 8.04LTS. Can anyone help?

Nice looking theme btw :)

I've seen that someone has problem with this theme: there are some sintax error as reported above.

I think it depends on murrine svn.
Ubuntu uses murrine 0.60.1 and peraphs, in other distributions (as Archlinux), the use of a different version of Murrine gives these sintax error.

I found a wiki at http://www.cdavis.us/wiki/index.php/Install_the_Dust_theme_on_Arch_Linux that explain how to use murrine 0.60.1 ccompiling it.

Can you post there if you'll find some fixing? Thanks a lot to all of you.

If I can I'll prepare a modified version of this theme.

Error -> ".themes/BiMetallico/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:110: error: unexpected identifier `style', expected character `}'"

Fix -> Simple. Open up the gtkrc in gedit/leafpad/nano and go down to line 110. Change the word 'style' to 'profile'. Bam.

I'm on Arch Linux and using the theme right now. It works fine.

I've been lurking on gnomelook for years, but I only just registered an account specifically to say thanks for the amazing theme! It's a great realization of the dust/shiki-colors-style themes that have been popping up lately.

Mature, elegant, distinctly linux.

Also, I very much like the blue backgrounds in, i.e., list view in the gnome file manager and rhythmbox playlists. Much easier on the eyes than the garish white-and-grey list style in many other themes.

Thanks!!

Thanks a lot!
I used some ideas from dust theme (and its metacity frame) to improve my previous themes (or I try to improve!). You can also change the base colors of the theme trough System>Preferences>Aspect(I think so in english)>themes>customizing themes>colors, so you can use, i.e., orange or green for lists and other elements that now are blue.
Bye.

The icons are one fo the best icons set for gnome (it's my opinion of course!): Elementary. You can fuond it in http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Elementary+Icons?content=73439

I'm trying to use this in Arch but, like ALL of the Dust themes, it doesn't appear to work. Is there some engine I need or a version or something I need for it?

Sorry, I made this theme in Ubuntu, that has the latest murrine engine in its repositories. You need version 0.60.
