Description:

This is a very very black modification of
my slickness theme.
I made it cause someone here at gnome-look
asked if I could.

New feature since version 0.3:
You can now choose colors using gnome
theme manager.
It is my very first try at something like this so it might not work exactly as planned.

Feedback of any kind is always welcome :D

Good work but I wish you had included the scroll bars you have in the non-black slickness version. Do you think you could add them to this version at some point?

Another very nice theme. This theme has one thing, that I missed in "Overglossed" and "Slickness". When you click the search field in FF the font is white. This makes the previous searched topics more visible, than in the two other themes. See example. The first one is "Slickness Black" the second one is "Slickness".

Yeah that is a bug in firefox if you don't use
the included css style file that I included in
slickness....

In the latest firefox 3 it works without any fixes at
all.

I have only Human icon in my Open Office - it is possible to use anotfer (better) set of icons with this theme? I have also made a hybrid with Slickness and Overglossed - it looks really nice - both themes are good but i prefer panels&scrollbars from Overglosed and menubar and the other things from Slickness black.

I have absolutely no idea, sorry, but you could
try this nice fix Gerva did:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Openoffice+fix+for+slickness+black+theme?content=77415

What it does is that it starts openoffice with
the ordinary slickness theme so openoffice
does not suffer from the annoyances that
it does when using a dark theme!

Glad you like my work and I hope you enjoyed hacking it! ;D

hope this helps!

Hi Robert,

There are problems with font colors in Firefox with black-Slickness.

I see from the screenshot that you are using
a firefox theme, doesn't that change the
font colors?

Maybe not... are you sure you run darkfix
correctly????

since there shouldn't after that be any
problems in firefox :)

thanks for reporting tho!

Hi,

I would like to know if you think make a new version of "Slickness black" more evolved as for "Slickness" which is more evolved. "Slickness black" is my favorite theme and it is a pity that "Slickness black" does not profit from the same changes (such as lift).

Bye !

Yeah I know... It's just that I don't have
enough time for this theming business....
I will update when I have the time :)

SlicknesS is the theme I use myself so it
feels natural for me to work on that one
in the first place :)

Thanks!

I dont know what it means. I really love this theme and I really want it. Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you for your interest in my theme!! :D

Yeah, those install instructions are a bit wrong....
I thought I had them corrected butobviously
not... the only thing you have to do is split
the command to two commands, so they are

sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/SlicknesS-black /usr/share/themes

and then

sudo chmod 777 /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS-black/Slickness-black.jpg

hope this helps!

When I do the commands you say to do nothing seems to happen. After the first command it asks me for my password and then nothing happens. Then I put the seconds command absolutely nothing happens . I then check emerald and nothing has changed. I really love your theme and I really want it. Please help me out.
