Great theme, looks amazing, I changed the font color though, to match the blue menus.

Two question:
how did you get the menus to be transparent? I've looked all over the internet and everything says go to the opacity tab in the general options menu of compiz but there is no opacity tab in that menu on mine.

also what do you use instead of gnome now?

What distro you use? I can say you the parameters to make the transparency effect on Compiz.

Copy and paste in the respective space the follow line:

And set the percentage of transparency in the button below

Enjoy it!

Thanks!

Yeah I used compiz for the transparent effects....
It was a long time ago since I used compiz so
I don't remember how I did it...

Now I use kde-svn (4.2 branch) and I'm so happy
with
it I have no thoughts of using anything else :)

it shouldn't be hard to find a great tutorial on
how to fix the transparency with compiz

what 4.2 distro do you use, I tried using the 4.1 and was very displeased, couldn't do anything to the bottom bar as far as customization. So I downloaded the neon nightly build of 4.2, it's much better, more customizable, but I'm missing some of the cool plasma applets. I assume this will be fixed in time, just wondering if there was a better beta out now, although the projected time for the release is just about a week away.

This is my favorite theme yet. It looks great and I love the fact that it has color controls.

I like this theme so much that I have made 8 different color variations of it so I can use this theme regardless of what color I am in the mood for.

I have successfully installed this theme on Ubuntu, Fedora, Suse, and Dream. The only distribution that I can not get it to work on 100% is Debian for ppc. The theme installs but it does not change the appearance of the menus and the color controls are not there. It is not the fault of this theme though.

Thanks for the hard work on this theme. I am looking forward to any other themes you create.

Yes--I'm one of the Alpha testers for Ubuntu....Checked in Synaptic & I see that the Pixbuf engine is installed, so I don't know why I am getting the response that the "engine " is not installed".

I am currently using the new 2.6.25-3 kernel & the newest Gnome release--2.23.4--I'm thinking that something has changed in the way that theme engines are defined...I would need to check with the Gnome developer's list to verify that....

hmmm, looks like they have changed the
pixmap engine so my code don't work...

If that is the case all my themes should
have the same problem.

well, it doesn't really bother me anymore
since I don't use gnome anymore :)

I'm not even seeing a listing for a pixmap engine in Synaptic...I've got every engine I can grab & install on my system. If you have a link for that engine--shoot it to me & I'll give it a go.....

hmmm, if your distro is using aptitude
try this:

sudo aptitude search pixbuf

or

sudo aptitude search pixmap

it's usually called either pixmap or
pixbuf....
I know in ubuntu it's called pixbuf :)

hope this helps!

this is by far the most beautiful and very artistic theme i have seen aside from mac4lin(sorry for the haters). i like its compactness which is how themes should be...thank you!:)

one comment though, the color of the highlight when you click an item is too striking(can't think of a better term)to the eyes. it should be dimmer, IMO.

The color is very easy to change trough

Hi Rob--

Running the new testing Intrepid Ibex & Gnome-appearance-properties 2.23.3...got a warning when I apply any of the overglossed themes: "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine " is not installed". I thought that the theme engine " was a very interesting one :). Looks like a theme engine needs to be declared?

hmmm, you have pixmaps engine installed?

maybe they have changed the gnome/gtk
so that pixmaps themes don't work anymore....
I have no idea since I'm on kde these days :)

If you have more info please tell me
and I will put it in description :)
