Description:

Hello, let me introduce to you my newest theme - Archiplex.
It's based on Shiki-Colors by perfectska04 however you will see some changes:
completely removed roundness
different colors (background, prelight and so on)- atm there are 4 different sets: blue, green, red and orange.
different panel design
smaller icons
and more

Theme is using 3 different engines.
Clearlooks and Pixmap are required. There is also used Mist engine however it's only removing shades from inactive text so it's not so important and theme will work fine without it.

Emerald themes are also included, 2 different styles which means 8 themes.

Let me know about some bugs or ideas, everything would be helpful.

If you must vote down leave a comment so I can improve it!

I noticed a strange diagonal line over firefox textbox when they are not focused. When focused, the line disappear (only to reappear again when i leave textbox focus).

It's normal, good themes are usually reedited with minor changes.

I think this is a great port of the Shiiki theme, keeping it simple. I only have 2 griefs:
1. A metacity
2. I have a border in the panel: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3250/2905062381_35aa7b4254_o_d.png
3. Maybe the colors should adhere to the GNOME-Colors Palette?

But all in all great theme

1. mtacity: well there is a little problem, I haven't ever made a metacity theme. I was thinking about removing roundness from Shiki theme but I don't know how. If anyone could tell me would be great.
2. You mean border around menu (Apps/Places/Sys)? Or what? Because there is used a image with little roundness in corners but unfortunately it's mainly designed for bottom panel.
3. Well i'm not sure yet, basically they are based on colors from different distributions, for example blue one uses color from arch logo, green from suse, red from debian and orange from ubuntu. Of course it's not a big deal to add different colors, but probably when i'll fix some bugs. I'm thinking about evolution and i heard about some issues in xfce but they're not confirmed.
Anyone with xfce could check panel menu/plugins and report me if there is something wrong? Or anywhere else ;)

Next time read the description, there is written that it's based on shiki and of course perfectska04 allowed me to do this.
Pathetic.

Lovely Theme, any chance that you could explain how to get bigger icons ? It's a bitch to change songs in Banshee quickly.
Thanks.

Sure, open gtkrc file and you should see this line:
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16:panel=16,16:gtk-button=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=16,16:gtk-small-toolbar=16,16"
Changing gtk-toolbar to lets say 24 should help you.
