Description:


A dark, nearly black GTK2 theme. Contains borderless themes for Beryl (Emerald) and Metacity.

To resize windows using borderless themes (in Gnome at least), press Alt + Middle mouse button and drag the window. If there is any interest I could add Metacity and Emerald themes with borders later. If anyone needs more color variations, just ask.
[size=4]Installation:[/size]Download the package, extract it, open the folder and read the instructions file.
[size=4]Info:[/size]The Emerald themes has two versions, one with OSX-like buttons and another which resembles Vista buttons. The same applies to Metacity themes.

Firefox, Gaim and Open Office have some issues with dark themes. Fixes are provided in the instructions file.

Ubuntu users: Install the package 'gtk2-engines-pixbuf' to use the theme:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf.

when i use openoffice
the normal icons for standard features such as
Open, save,
Document as email,
export directly as pdf are all just text instead of icons
and even when i go into the appearance settings and change the interface settings to "Icons Only"
it still only displays text in openoffice

Do you know of any way to make the VLC buttons visible while using this theme? They're black buttons, unfortunately

I found a slight workaround for this by installing VLC with theme support, selected a light theme and voila. Problem solved.

They archive contains the files for all the different colors of the theme, you have to go in and extract them each individually

actually i found the thing about changing the background ...

but the image style in OO simply doesn't do anything

whatever i select it's always on the same

then i switch to some classic theme and i can change the style...

bah so annoying!

i really like your theme. good work! but there is one point with this theme, in gaim/pidgin chat window there is black text on black background...
to fix this create a gtkrc-2.0 in .purple dir in your home and put the following in it:
Quote:style "Custom"
{
base[NORMAL] = "#292B29"
}
class "GtkWidget" style "Custom"
it should be no problem to adjust the bg-colour to your needs...
