You can fix it if you change line 49 in the gtkrc which is located in ~./theme/novalime by replacing

bg[SELECTED] = "#fffffff"

with

bg[SELECTED] = "#2d9ac9"

I cannot get the nova gtk theme to display properly. I have both the pixmap engine and mist engine installed, but the title bar doesn't change and a few other things are off. It seems like many themes I use don't really work completely like they use to, is there a problem with gnome or something after an update?

Here's an example of the problem:

Versus what it should look close to:

Stunning work! There seems to be an issue with epiphany's url entry though, it draws a double border. Any idea how to fix this? Thanks

To keep it simple, when I used this theme with and without the mist engine and gtk1.2 packages, there was no difference in the result.

It still looked pretty, and a few decorations were displayed, but, at least judging from the beautiful screenshots, it didn't seem like it was how it was supposed to be displayed
It didn't seem like the full thing


*My last sentence is somewhat ironic I guess, since the style is minimalist.*

I try to install this theme and it says invalid file format. I really want this theme, any ideas. I have Ubuntu, with Gnome, I'm lost.

Just extract Nova.tar.gz in your file manager and move Nova-Blue, Nova-Gold, Nova-Pink and Nova-Lime folders to .themes folder in your home directory.
Or open your terminal, type
tar -xf Nova.tar.gz
cp -r Nova/* ~/.themes

the clock and the bars of the goodies in the panel are not visible (same color as the panel itself)

i'm using XFCE

Unfortunately, I have tried many times to get it working properly with xfce4 panel but to no avail. You can just use gnome panel instead of xfce4 panel or you could use an applet called XfApplet that will enable you to use gnome applets on xfce4 panel.

i definitely love your work, minimal and beautiful... however, i have a strange issue with firefox only, the text of the menu bar and inside the menus is white when selected. any other app will show the right color (lime in my case)... do you have any idea about what went wrong ?

here's an example :
http://images1.hiboox.com/images/2907/c6ni9bfw.jpg

in that case, as we can't see the mouse cursor, i was selecting "file > new tab"

thanks in advance

Thanks. Yes, I'm aware of this. Some of the Firefox themes doesn't work probably with Nova. Just use the default firefox theme. That is what I use.
