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:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Darkfix+%28+easy+fix+for+browsers+%29?content=74504

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

4.Open the theme manager, you can now
see the SlicknesS-black theme as a theme,
when you click on it , it suggests
taners amazing wallpaper he made for this theme!!
click apply to apply the wallpaper!

the icon theme it suggests is this one:

be drawn 1 pixel too low (Many thanks to
Moomex for that!!!!!!) ,made some minor tweaking to some elements (ie tabs are smaller now).

0.4 Made new scrollbar-sliders (older ones
where hard to spot), made completely new
entry style, fixed some uglyness in genereal. new listheaders. (in the first

for the menubar ofc)

COLOR SCHEME SUPPORT !!
Dude this is too much too fast.

Anyway this theme is AWESOME.

You may delete/comment these lines on panel.rc file:

class "*Tray*" style "panel"
class "*tray*" style "panel"
widget_class "*Tray*" style "panel"
widget_class "*tray*" style "panel"
widget "*TrayIcon*" style "panel"

This will fix a bug regarding some tray icons being one pixel down in the panel, and it won't screw anything up.

This is great! I think I'll actually replace the old Neutronium DeepBlack theme with this. This is much more readable in many places than Neutronium was.

One little criticism though, think there is too much space between the different parts of the menubar in firefox now, the same with nautilus, and the tabs in gnome terminal seem at little too tall. If you provided a version that fixed this I would want to d/l it right away!

Keep up the great work man!

Thanks for your feedback again guys!

If the color choosing is working good I'll
keep it in future releases also.

If you find something fishy be sure to let me
know so I can fix it :)

I love your theme but it makes it very hard to choose between yours and the blue-joy theme, they're both great! (I did change some colors to a very dark blue/grey/black kind of color)

Thank you guys for your constructive feedback!!!

the wallpaper is this one:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Balls?content=73370

I fixed the colorscheme so that you can choose
colors yourself in gnome-theme-manager,
so if it isn't dark enough just choose an
even darker color yourself from there :)

Best regards

Thanks you guys for your comments!!

as for the rename bug I am aware of it but
I can't seem to fix it :(

I use pcmanfm as file manager myself so I don't experience the bug myself
but I will try to fix it asap.

Very great theme, I hope it looks so great on my notebook.

Yeah! At least I have one theme for having some breaks of my own.

Keep up this excellent work. Sober, and intelligent themes are arriving to gnome-look after all!!

Sadly there isn't a 9th Star [...]
