Description:

gtk theme based on kimmiks \"sauerstoff\" (thats what I found in the gtkrc file) and
metacity theme based on \"Scaled Black : Murrina\" made by twigsby.

If anyone wants me to delete this I will.

This theme tries to bring an dark elegant style for the gnome desktop, I aim this theme for those who don't use a dock at the bottom but use the gnome-panel. All ideas / suggestions are very welcome. Please comment what you like about my work and what you don't.

Requires the pixbuf and murrina engine

I accidentally deleted the bluer version!

sry for that!

IMPORTANT! -set the bottom panel to 32px



issues:
firefox fonts.
to fix that go here:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Darkfix+%28+easy+fix+for+browsers+%29?content=74504
that is an amazing fix made by code933k
which works with most browsers :)

thank you all for your name-suggestions
for this theme!

I have been to lazy (or busy) to change that
so the name of this theme stays the same.
I have good name suggestions for my next
theme however :)
Last changelog:

fixed so that when a window is maximized the maximize/unmaximize button points down and not up.

fixed the "application launcher - properities" earlier you couldn't read the text... it still isn't beautiful but you don't see it that often anyway... changed the overall look a little and other small "improvements".

fixed the borders of maximized windows (is now borderless and are not rounded when maximized) plus tried to make the metacity look more "modern", and other minor changes.

removed the line between active tab and notebook and some other small changes.

fixed the firefox black text problem.
fixed a version with 25px panel.
Also tweaked the "menu button" a little bit to fit the 25px panel. Fixed so that the workspace switcher uses panel-style.

Fixed a bug that made the panel draw two lines of open windows in the window list if set to 32px or larger.

nicer rounded toolbar buttons.

made a new bluer version of the 25px version (user request).

Improved the alternative bluer version, (screenshot 3).

08-12-2007 first version I'm happy with (1.0) , made changes to metacity theme (better , bigger more informative buttons and other changes),and most bugs fixed.

version 1.1 fixed a bug where the default button appeared smaller than other buttons, changed the overall color a little bit closer to blue, new entries...... other small changes. NO changes to alternative version.

1.11 fixed the inkscape problem and made the panel buttons spacing smaller as suggested :)

Do you know how to change the color of the text on the CPU frequency scaling monitor? As its hard to read the black text on this theme.

And once again, thanks for this theme :)

Hey, dude! That's THE best theme I've ever seen! Congratulations on the smooth work!
By the way, here's just a little sugestion: I like the alternative blue theme, but I miss the borders of the original one. So, could you add side borders to the windows in the alternative blue? Besides that, it's just perfect.
Also, it remindes me of that plastic buttons of the old cell phones, so I was thinking of smthg like "poliethynight", or "starry-plastic", I dunno...

Thank you for your lovely comment!!

If you like the standard window borders theme
better than the alternative version, just
select window borders theme standard and
controls theme alternative
(If I misunderstood you completely please reply!)

Thank you for the names also!!
(I'll put them under consideration)

I love your theme and I use it all the time but I have to switch theme everytime I want to use Inkscape because it cuts off part of the buttons in it. Is there anyway you could fix it?

Yes, I have the same Inkscape problem. It doesn't make the program "unusable", but if there was a solution, that'd be great.

BTW, SlicknesS is really cool too, but I still prefer NoName, so please don't drop it.

Thanks for your comment!

Are you sure you are using the latest version (1.11) ?, since I fixed a problem
with the inkscape icons.

Yes, you are right. I was using a much older version. I see now that you listed that as a fix in the latest version.

Unfortunately, I much prefer the old version with rounded buttons, subtle button colors, and rounded windows. So I guess I'll stick with the older version and just live with the Inkscape problem since I don't use it very often.

Hmm..., I wonder if I can try doing some tweaking myself and get the "best of both". I've got some vacation time, so I'll look into it.

Well, that was simple after all. I just copied the old Metacity folder contents over into the new theme, and I'm good to go. Inkscape icons are back to normal and I still have all that "rounded" goodness that I liked so much in the old version.
Thanks again for all your hard work.

I've just installed it, and it looks to be a good dark theme. However, I feel that the gap between the windows' buttons in the windows list takes up too much space. It could be made smaller.

Report

first: thank you for your interest in my theme!

second: I could make the window-list-gap smaller to next version (i have thought about it myself too) I will fix it when I have the time, thanks for reporting your requests!

Hey great theme I'm really liking it. Only problem i have is in firefox when typing in a search bar the drop menu that appears is really dark and i can't read the text. Any way to change this? I'm somewhat new to Linux still. Also could you post your .conkyrc file. I like how you have it set up. Thanks

I'm pleased to hear you like my theme :D

firefox fix:
take the userChrome.css file included in the archive and copy it to
/home/USERNAME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome
where username stands for your username and the *. stands for a random series of numbers and letters and restart firefox.

Conky:
for the conky-file I wouldn't take much credit as I just took this conky http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/My+Conky+Config?content=62536
and modified the code a little, if you still want my modified file instead I will post it :D

Hmmm... now link it's working. Theme is nice now, but I thought you use just a bit darker blue... I like blue colour from Elegance... Can you use color from this theme? It'll be nice... Now, when you open start menu, blue color is almost exactly the same like cyan - difference is imperceptible...

P.S. Start menu icon still is cyan although I use bluer version... Are you going to fix it? You said before that you'll make new bar.. Is it in progress or not?

Greetings...

I adjusted the color of everything that was cyan exactly the same amount, including the start button, you have to load it in gconf-editor from the path where it is ( /home/USERNAME/.themes/noname-25-blue/gtk-2.0/panel/bottom-panel-menu-button.png

as for the panel, i have run out of ideas but I'm constantly trying out new things.

btw, could you pls tell me about the pm function here on gnome-look (i'm pretty new here), so I don't know how it works.

I could make everything even darker blue if you want to. If I understand you correct you want the background colors of the windows to be the same thou?
