I love the theme, but I'm a tinkerer and I want to change a few things around. How are you able to keep the menus black [that's what I like most] while changing window colors? See, I want lighter windows but with that dark menu. Also, the theme doesn't seem to work so well on firefox.

The colors of the theme is fully adjustable. I use orange instead of blue! You can change the base colors of the windows trough the gnome appareance tool and make it lighter. Menus are a deep darker version of this base color, so they'll remain dark gray!

Adjusting the colours in the Appearance tool doesn't seem to effect the autocomplete list for the location bar. It is black text on a dark grey background. (I mean this dropdown: http://is.gd/9IS64)

I'm not sure if I just need to change my firefox theme or something else (I'm using default Ubuntu theme -- Tango).

Hi Mate,

you're welcome :) It's such a nice theme.

But I localized a small bug. In Firefox and OpenOffice, the boxes have a border. I attached an image link, so you know what I mean.

Have a nice day!

I know it. There's a bug in the menù bar of these applications too: text is white instead to be black.
These bugs depend, I think, by the unstandard use of gtk made by Firefox and Openoffice. So I have no idea to resolve them.

I really love this theme. I like these black menus. I would also like to see this theme with a black menubar :)

Could you please change the checkboxes? They are currently the standard clearlooks boxes and they don't look good at all.

But that's my favourity gnome theme ever! Makes look gnome much more professionell!
And the best thing, it isn't just one of these boring Mac OS clones (I'm really tired of seeing Macish Themes on linux desks)

THANKS !:)

Thanks! Thanks a lot!
I think that a black menu bar is a good idea! I'll try it!
The combo box are the standard one because I don't want to use any pixmap component in this theme. However, because this is a gpl theme everyone can modify it!

Very nice theme. I realy want that panel from the screenshot back though! Or if you can fix the current panel so that "Weather report" panel plugin doesn't have black on black text.

Thanks

I've correct the errors in the panel applets. I'll prepare a splitted version of this theme with gray panel.
Thanks!

Ok,
I will waiting for a compact version (I don't know if this sentence is correct in english).

Now, I use clearlook-compact, and I think it's very good for application that requires space on screen (blender, the gimp for large pictures etc.).

Your theme is beautiful and a compact version would be the maximum for me!!!

Thanks for your time and patience... :-)
