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

To fix browser problems go here:

that fix will fix all your browser problems :)

A HUGE thanks to code933k for making it!!

!!!IMPORTANT!!!

To install:
1.Download the file to your desktop
2.Right click the file and select extract here
3.open a terminal and run these commands:
first:
sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/SlicknesS-black /usr/share/themes
second:

4.Open the theme manager, you can now

It's not supposed to give any output
in the terminal (if you don't get any kind
of error then it's working).

As for this not showing up in emerald
it's because this is a gtk theme, not
emerald :)

To get emerald theme, go here :

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/SlicknesS+Emerald?content=73972

Just click in emerald theme manager :
import and scroll to the SlicknesS.emerald file.

Hope this helps!

Very very nice! I'm switching from my old faithful to this one for a while. I really like dark themes and was just living with a few of the apps where I couldn't read some of the text. Slickness Black seems to be working with everything so far. Thanks!

I didn't realize that BBCode doesn't work in the signature and that you can't edit your comment after it has been posted. Was wondering if there was a way to do that. no big deal. Anyways, nice work on this one and Overglossed. Really good looking themes.

Hi!

I just want to thank you for this amazing theme. I love it!

I use a modified version where I have exchanged the scrollbars with the scrollbars from your Overglossed theme. I think it looks very nice..

Thanks a lot!!

Yeah in the next release I will have better
scrollbars in this theme, or at least try
to do better ones :)

Maybe something in style with the ones
I have in the slickness theme....

Thanks for pointing it out(makes me do new
scrollbars faster :D)

That is awesome that you went back and fixed most problems with wanting white entry fields and it seems to work perfect for me everywhere but in open office. All the text in buttons becomes black and you can't see anything until you hover the mouse over them. Also, all the pop up text when you hover the mouse over the buttons on the tool bars are black text on black background. (I wonder if there is a file somewhere you can tinker with this, like userChrome.css in firefox?)

Also, I have to admit, I love the shape of the scroll bars in the non-black version of slickness... Still, great theme though, among the best on this site.

yeah, that's a pain when fonts are unreadable,
I don't even have the openoffice.org-gtk
package installed myself (gnome-integration, uses the theme)
that gets rid of every problem,, however
I will try to fix it, but I can't promise
a fix any time soon since I don't have a
clue on where to start looking....

Thanks for reporting tho!
didn't know of that problem :)

And thank you for your kind words man!!!

I followed the installation instructions, but it doesn't show up in my themes. I'm running ZenWalk 5.0. Any ideas why it doesn't show up or-better yet-how to get it to?

Hmmm, did you get any errormessage or
anything when running the command?

you could try to extract the package to
/usr/share/themes manually too.

hope this helps

Are you syre you are using metacity
window manager?

I haven't heard anyone else have any
problems with the border theme...

if you use compiz you could install emerald
and dload this one:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/SlicknesS+Emerald?content=73972

could you describe a little more what the
problem is since I cannot fix the problem
if I don't really know what it is :) ?

Hi!

yes that helps!

The problem is that you are running
XFCE and not gnome, xfce uses another
window manager than gnome (not metacity)
I'm not sure exactly which one but the
theme here is for metacity (and then there
is the emerald one for those who use compiz)

I'm sorry to say but I have no clue on
how to port the border theme to xfce (
I would do that if I knew how to)
if someone knows how to do it and it's not
too much work then that would be great!

//Robert

Okay. First off, I use Zenwalk 5.0-not sure if that'll help out.
To use a theme, I go to XFCE Settings Manager and choose "User Interface." When I choose Slickness Black, it changes everything but the titlebar. In order to change the titlebar, I have to exit out of "User Interface" and go into "Window Manager," where there's a section called "Style." Changing that changes the titlebar, and there's no style in there to match the titlebar in the screenshot.
Hope that helps.

shit, this is f___in good. the dark dark version is much better, since the text widget is easier on the eyes.

Hi,

I have the latest version of this theme, but I don't have any icons in OpenOffice. How do I fix this. I see on your third picture it has icons.

Report

TheRob

If you look a little closer on the third
screenshot you'll understand what to do,
just click on (in oo) tools -> options ->
view and there select the icons, then appearance
and there fix the color problem.

(the third screenshot explains a lot)

hope this helps!
