Unfortunately not, I shared this modified theme when I was a teenager with a lot of free time. Now I don't have any more time and I don't even have the cumpetences to port this theme to GTK3 or Qt. If anyone want to do it, do it.

I was in a similar situation awhile back. porting a custom theme to GTK 3 is no easy task. I had to discontinue work on the theme I had even created a brand new version that was awesome but it never saw release.

Great thenme! Thank you!!!!! Love it! Installed on several different computers and depends much on graphs card. Some like Dell all works great! Menus in OO are white. On some others with more advanced graph cards menus are black.... bummer.... Nothing can be change. Tried to mess around with gtkrc file and nothing.... Maybe some more advanced users could elaborate on this. As I have to mention it only affects the OO Menus all ohters are excellent and I love it.

For OpenOffice, try adding
text[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
in the gtkrc file at line 1181 (style "menubar" section).

For firefox, add the following lines at the end of userChrome.css file (in your firefox profile directory):

menubar, menubutton, menu, menuitem, menupopup, popup > * {
color: #d7d7d7 !important;
}

Hope this helps.

Hello all,
I downloaded the .gz file then extracted to ~/.theme directory.
By doing this, the theme is available in "Appearance Preferences" window but with a message "This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme 'Raptor' is not installed" and I don't get the Raptor theme.
Am I missing something to install this theme. Please help me, I really like this theme.
Many thanks.

The safest way is to open the Appearance window and just drag-and-drop the .tar.gz into it. That should install it properly.

I noticed you have a picture of a girl in the background of one of your previews. I am curious if that is an applet you are using to display the picture. I like the way it is "framed".


Awesome theme.
