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!!!!

No problem with finnish, I like finnish!

I will look in to it, also is it just some
specifik application which suffer from the
combobox problem or is it in general?

I am still busy at the moment fixing bugs
in one of my other themes:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/SlicknesS?content=71993

but it seems to be under control soon....

I will upload a new version here once the
bugs are fixed, thanks for reporting!

Damnit man this theme is so fucking awesome I'm gonna have to use it! :)

But since I like it so much I have noticed a few little things...

When I try to rename a file the text is impossible to read when I'm typing

And I'd like it if the Menubar at the top was the same as the icon bar... At least I think I would... guess I'd have to see it.

Thanks again man for making this awesome theme!!

another thing....

when I use gconf-editor... I cant see the arrows on the left side of the folders.

maybe its the same thing thats causing the text not to be visible when renaming...

The first bug I know of... and it's really
hard to fix... and I have a lot to do with
the other themes I made too, but I will
try to fix that :)

Thanks again for your constructive feedback!!!

ok one more thing... when I do a "shade window" the bar is colored for about 75% of it... and the rest is grey... weird

I'm actually running Ubuntu on an old IBM R40 series laptop that's limited to a 1024x768 screen and this theme does absolute magic with the usability of the desktop. Simply awesome!

Hi TheRob, this theme is great and the other Slickness and Slickness Black, my favorite!

Only problem: the seizure of the file name is invisible on the screen.

Hi i think your theme is something wonderful, i installed on my debian etch and now it looks better. Just a question, my menus are not like the ones i saw in your screenshots, they remain the original grey. I'd like to get the same i saw in your screenshots. How can i do? Thanks a lot

have pixmap aka pixbuf engine installed....
