Description:

A small, light and smooth theme for GTK based desktops. It use only Clearlooks engine, so may work fine in every system up-to-date.

I have used it with faenza, elementary and awoken icons, so I suggest you to try one of these.

If you have an older version installed, please remove it BEFORE install the new one:
rm -rf ~/.themes/BSM*

Any bug/suggestion, please write a comment. And don't forget your vote.

You must have figured it out by now, but anyways, here is the thing: Just extract the downloaded tarball and move the themes (all the versions) into ~/.themes :)

Hi There ! Ever considered of porting your theme to GTK3; i am using Debian Testing - Gnome 3.0.2 and i would sure like to use your theme :)

You can use the GTK2 version for the GTK2 apps. Think about it and let us know ! Great job !

Thanks and rgds !

This theme fine!!! So simple, so clean. Only one question. Please how can I customize the colors of icon notification indicator about mail / message. I consider as the most beautiful simple dark panel. But in this variant this icon or translucent white if isn't present the notification or simply white if there is a notification. Isn't evident. If it was green or blue it would be better.

Please how can I customize the colors of my bsm theme. I can't see the text highlighted in firefox search box for the dark theme. And I have to strain my eyes to see the scroll bars too. But I love the dark theme and will like to customize these areas. thanks.

Currently is 2016. BSM Dark looks beauty on Linux Mint 17.3. The one only issue is this cannot be applied to Firefox GUI (tabs bar, tool bar, bookmark bar, context menu, side bars, main panels, scroll bars, etc.).

Hi Bruno, I read your Reply, but now this is not here.
Please, if you have time, update your beauty BSM Dark Theme to GTK3 (Firefox on Mate not support GTK2 themes, currently), and make bottom bar not full black, due a not visible some icons. Or what is the line to change bar color?

Thanks!

Hey, I really love this theme. At first glance it looks pretty, clearly, smoothly and softly.
Is it possible to make also an icon toolbar dark, but keep the content of the window light? Similar to Dust theme, if you mind... This would be very nice and will perfectly fit to some setup.
I can do it by myself, just tell me where to change the settings :)

Hello, and first I'd like to say thanks for this great theme, I've been using it for probably about a year now and I'm very pleased with it.

Recently, when I upgraded to Xfce 4.8, the weather panel plugin started displaying text in black (on the Dark Menu theme), so it was practically unreadable.

Screenshot: http://images.steven-mcdonald.id.au/xfce-weather-plugin-unreadable.png

It turns out this plugin is using text (rather than fg) colour, and since there's no text definition in panel.rc, it was using the one from gtkrc. I fixed it by adding explicit text colour definitions to the two affected themes (Dark Menu and Dark Panel).

Patch to fix the themes: http://ftp.steven-mcdonald.id.au/bsm-simple/fix-panel-text.patch

Thanks again,
Steven.

Thank you for report this bug. I already use Debian, but just the "stable" releases, so my XFCE version is 4.6.

I'll update the theme as soon as possible, probably tomorow.

Are you using the 1.2 theme version? I rewrite the XFWM Dark theme, it's amazing now!!! =)

Yes, I updated today, it's great! I especially love the way the buttons turn red on mouseover. Thanks again! =)

Your themes are very beautiful, I like them very much but there is a disturbing problem.. When I use a superuser mode (synaptic, startup manager etc.) the theme of the su window goes to basic ugly gnome theme. I'v tried to copy themes files to /usr/share/themes but it wont work at all. I'm using ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 with gnome.

I think your problem is permission. Try make the theme folders (and sub-folders/files)as read-only to others users.

This command may solve the problem (run as ROOT): chmod -R 750 /usr/share/themes/BSM*

Did it solve it?

I really like this theme, but I've noticed a bug with menus in BSM Simple Dark.

Here is a screenshot of a Thunar preferences menu:

Notice that the non-highlighted menu options are not legible.

I was able to fix this bug by editing BSM Simple Dark Menu/gtk-2.0/gtkrc, and changing line #492 as follows:

Replace:
text[NORMAL] = @fg_color

With:
text[NORMAL] = darker (@selected_fg_color)

I've also found that commenting out line # 364 of BSM Simple Dark Menu/gtk-2.0 makes things look better in Eclipse:

#bg[NORMAL] = @bg_color
