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!!!!!

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

This is a great looking theme! And it works very well with Ubuntu Studio.
When i first downloaded it I downloaded it to my desktop and followed your instructions but nothing happened. So i moved the extracted folder to my home folder, tried again and it installed.
I hope that will help people who had the same problem as me. :)

Well, what can I say!?!?! Thank you
for that absolutely kind and inspiring and
generally nice comment :D

Highly appreciated!

I checked your screenshot, (It makes me
happy when people send me screenshots
so I know how they use my theme and what
they use with it and so on..) and I see you
use my favorite conkyconfig made by Hund!

You have managed to get a nice consistent
look on your desktop and looks cool with
a glassy looking dock at the bottom!

Thanks again for liking my theme and
for your very inspiring feedback :D

The way the scrollbars work in particular - the bar and the buttons are curved and they fit together and overlap and it all works perfectly... maybe GTK has more features than I thought, because I've yet to see this anywhere else! :p

Thanks :D

Well, the scrollbars are easily fixed that
way, but the panels are fake, I just made
some images with rounded corners and loaded them
in the panel properties so I'm sry to disappoint you.

Thank you guys!

As for the conky , so many people have
asked for my conky I will upload it here
on gnome-look :)

The blurry-glassy-effect it has on the
screenshot is fake tho (I edited the
wallpaper for that)

the rounded panel images are located in:
$HOME/.themes/Overglossed/gtk-2.0/panel
folder, they are named:
panel-bg-custom.png
for bottom panel
panel-bg-custom-top.png
for top panel
they only fit with 1280 width screen
resolutions tho.

Glad you like the scrollbars! :D

That's a pretty sweet looking panel you have up there at the top, mind sharing the image you use?

Thank you very much for your constructive
feedback man!!

My conkyconfig is based on this one:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/My+Conky+Config?content=62536

I have made some small changes but that
is pretty much the same, if you however
want my exact config I can e-mail it to
you or something.

As for the menu highlight, that would
work(!), but I was really hoping to do
something different this time :D

Anyway, I probably do something like that :)

Thanks!

Why not do something for the gnome menubar highlighting like you did with your slickness black theme only using the blue of this theme?

Report

Well, I do have one suggestion. The Gnome main menubar now has white highlighting for applications, locations and system. Maybe something with the same shade of blue would be better for the sake of consistency.

You know what? You are absolutely right!

I just didn't come up with anything else
at that moment :D

I will try to do something better for
next release!

Thanks for pointing it out tho!

I dislike the menues also, I will
make new ones to next release.

Any Ideas on what the menues should
be like then I'm all ears!

Nice piece of work Rob, I think you're one of the most talented theme designers on gnome-look. I'm also interested to see how you're gonna refine this one.
