A very very overglossed theme I made....
I was unsure if I wanted to release it but
I remembered some people liking my other
themes...... Whatever , go here to fix
any browser font problems (for most browsers):
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Darkfix+%28+easy+fix+for+browsers+%29?content=74504
it works like a charm and is very easy to use!
Big thanks to code933k for making it!

package contains gtk and metacity themes
(controls and window borders)

oh, and you can tweak the colors using
gnome theme manager.

!!!!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 this command:
sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/Overglossed /usr/share/themes

4.Open the theme manager, you can now
see the Overglossed 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:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/black-white+2+Style?content=72619

any problems with the install let me know!!!!

Any suggestions and feedback very welcome!

for the metacity code I used the codebase

of scaled black murrina made by twigsby.
everything else made by me from scratch.


HUGE thanks to artist taner for is exceptionally
beautiful artwork wallpaper!!!!

You want to do the same thing except it needs to go into the icons rather than themes folder

Nicest dark theme I've ever tried. Would be perfect except for the problem of disappearing text when renaming files, which I can live with. Many thanks for all your hard work on this beautiful theme.

This theme totally rocks! Thanks!

I had to do this stuff to resolve some errors I encountered (my system is Ubuntu 8.10):

1.) I was getting this error in the Appearance util:
Quote:
This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ engine 'ubuntulooks' is not installed.
To fix this problem I installed the missing component with the terminal command:
Quote:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-ubuntulooks

2.) The error msg then changed except instead of 'ubuntulooks' it just said "". So then I made these changes:
first backup the file to be changed:
Quote:
sudo cp /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.backup
then edit the gtkrc file as follows:
Quote:
sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
Change the line:
Quote:style "unstyle"
{
engine ""
to
Quote:
style "unstyle"
{
engine "ubuntulooks"

Hope this helps.

What's that tool on the right of the desktop what shows the CPU and stuff? I remember seeing that, but I don't know what it is. I really want to add it though. x.x

It's called Conky, you can get it as a .deb package I am sure. If not, do a search for it on Google. I am sure you'll find it.

Great theme - and it looks really good on my netbook (Ubuntu Hardy).

One small issue: right-click on a file icon and select 'rename' - as soon as you start to type or move the cursor the file name area goes blank. It remains blank when you type a new filename - can't see what you're typing. But when you press 'enter' the new name you typed is displayed correctly.

Small gripe - and no big deal compared with the all-round high quality of this theme. Warmest congratulations and thanks.

Awesome theme mate ! but im not sure how to install it
I Downloaded it and went to system-appearance and installed it It worked but I get this in Themes "This theme will not look as intended because the required icon theme black-white_2-Style is not installed" and "this theme will not look as intended because the required GTK + Themes engine ubuntulooks is not installed

What am I doing wrong ?

Thanks for the awesome theme

when i did it they came up too. you have to go to the link that he suggestedd up near the top of this page. then instal the fonts (go to ubuntu forums or similar if u dont know how). then u have to install ubuntulooks and u can search google for that i think. u didnt do anything wrong though.
