woow one of the best themes I've ever seen

Just a couple of suggestions

Silent Night-Dark
-on several sites textboxes font are black like the background of textboxes, difficult to read (Firefox)

-could you please make panel-bg bigger, like 30 px, just in case to want our gnome-panel bigger

thanks and keep up your good effort

Yeah,internet doesn't like dark themes,it could be fixed with userContent.css. You can easily make bigger panel-bg pixmap in gimp.

i m usually against pixmap (i do not know how to do) but your is really well done

Thanks for the great themes, nale12!

How do you remove the Ubuntu logo from the main menu? Here's a screenshot of the problem:

I did. For some reason, the "Show Icons In Menus" checkbox in Gnome 2.28.1 doesn't affect the main menu anymore. See:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1295357

Has anyone found a workaround?

I think I had it before upgrading GTK+. But now it looks fine.

By the way, do you know how to fix Firefox? It doesn't look good... Backgrounds are totaly black (in toolbars, bookmarks, tabs).

Hi! Great theme!

Unfortunately (or fortunately), I've found a bug. When I use Silent Night, and I launch any of the applications from Openoffice, it (Openoffice) has no icons. Where there should be icons there are only words; e.g. it says "open file" in words where there should be an "open file" icon.

The system I'm using is Mandriva One 2010 rc2 Gnome edition. Since it's not final yet, it could be a Mandriva bug, or an Openoffice one, but it only happens with this theme, not with others.

Thank you for your excelent work, anyways.

One little but enoying thing :
List widget in netbeans has both black foreground and background.
This make the theme difficult to use for netbeans users.
