Last changelog:

7 years ago

0.5.0
Darkened the list headers slightly to better match the rest of the theme.

Flattened the scrollbar arrows.

Changed the location bar from a rounded text entry box to a square one. If you still like the old rounded box (which was reworked to remove artifacts at the corners) just rename the old file in the Shadows folder and delete the square one.

The highlighted menu item effect was changed as was the effect for the selected buttons.

0.4.0
Added effects for tabbing through the buttons to designate the active button.

Removed hover effects for the buttons and combo boxes as I felt that they were a little too bright for the theme.

Reworked some text that was previously white and made it black for better readability

Known BUG: The panel background does not scale well beyond 24 pixels.


0.3.0
Reworked some images to make the theme more cohesive.


0.2.2
Fixed the background and buttons for the "Create Launcher" issue. Had to sacrifice the button style on the bottom panel to remedy this issue.


0.2.1
Quality control must have flown right out the window! Uploaded the correct file. My apologies.


0.2.0
Reworked the tabs and the spin boxes. Changed the scrollbars and the progress bars. If you prefer the original scroll bars and progress bars you can find them in their respective directories prefixed with "Original".


0.1.2
Added some .PNG files that eluded me previously.


0.1.1
Minor change - Changed the panel background for the active window.

This theme looks really good so far. However, there are a few little bugs I noticed. First, the rounded location bar in nautilus appears to have some artefacts around it. Second, this theme doesn't play very nice with firefox--once a button is highlighted (eg forward, back etc), it changes the background color of that button until firefox is restarted.

Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us and keep up the good work.

I have had these issues with all of the themes that I have used that have a gradiant background for the main window. I have been searching the net for a fix but I have not turned up anything as of yet. Sorry.....

Please consider add a "selected" status to buttons or other controls, for example, some glow.

I mean, if I use tab to navigate in a dialog box, it is not visible which button is currently selected.

This is a theme that merged the best of mac and kde oxygen style, and removed the part that I don't like in mac style (specifically the round buttons) I love it!

There are a few bugs and things I think could improve:

1) in firefox, if I hover on the toolbar, button background changes to a lighter gray, which seems like unfinished artwork.

2) in firefox, if I select the url, its font color changes to blue, but the natural way, I think, is to make the background blue (or whatever color) instead of keep it white.

3) the spinbox is broken, the button is not aligned well with the edit. (a spinbox is an edit box, with a up-down arrow beside it to let you adjust numeric values)

4) the add new shortcut to toolbar dialog box has some background repeated, clearly not the intended effect.

5) Finally, the only thing I don't like in this theme is the style of tabs, which does not seem to "blend" into the page it controls nicely.

Thank you!

I have fixed the tabs and the spin box issues and I am working on the "create launcher" window issue. I am sort of at a loss as to how to fix this bug so I will need to do some research (any tips are appreciated).

I did not notice the Firefox issues because I use Chromifox Extreme Carbon as my theme. The issues only seem to surface in certain themes.

Thank you for your input! I will upload the repaired theme soon.....

1.About the addshortcut dialog background:
I have reported the exact same problem to the developer of SlicknesS theme (TheRob) and he fixed it by sacrifice some feature of the theme (which I think is not noticeable to users) I am sorry I don't know what he did as I am not a theme developer -- You might contact him directly

2. About firefox: I will retest on your latest version soon. And I also noticed that the selected background issue only occur in the url edit box of firefox, but not other edit boxes (e.g. the search box).

Finally thank you very much for swift fix!
