Description:

QflashingLights (GTK) is a dark theme that's not too dark, designed to go well with the QflashingLights Metacity theme. It's designed to be shiny, polished, and have that eggplant/steel blue tint. Much of the work is simply modifications on qDrk by Luxie Rayku. Please modify to your heart's content, and submit the results back for improvement of the other themes!

Included is a PACKAGE for Ubuntu/Debian-based systems! Enjoy!

Note: if you vote good/bad, I would appreciate knowing why. Please leave feedback!

I like this theme quite a bit. Purple and black go together well.

I have found some input boxes on websites come up white with a white font. Please fix!

I found a Stylish plugin that fixes this (it was Firefox related)

Good, I'm happy you were able to fix it. I also use a stylish plugin with almost every theme. Dark themes do not go well with firefox otherwise.

I've always loved dark themes and the purple works great! I don't understand why anyone would complain about the progress bars, they work just fine for me. A recommended wallpaper for this theme would be: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Ball-lnx?content=133545

Now that I switched to clearlooks for Treeview items (to make them glossy), progressbars embedded in treeview items show up as black bars (ie transmission). How can I change this without messing up the pixmap portions of the theme?

The only thing I like are the progress bars.
It's not usable, as 99% of dark themes

I would like (hopefully) to improve the buttons on the scrollbar. If someone knows how to make them shiny, almost "glowing" per se.... I tried to do it, but it became too blurry so I had to get rid of it.

I'm also looking to make selected text in lists (such as rhythmbox's song library for example) have a gradient to match the rest of the theme. Also, the prelight slider (also in rhythmbox for example) should be replaced with something less awkward. I tried, but I'm not the best!

Kason,
This should get the selected text look you want.


style "treeview-item" = "default"
{

#text [ACTIVE] = "#d9d9d9"
#text [SELECTED] = "#ffffff"


engine "pixmap"
{

image
{
function = BOX
state = ACTIVE
file = "/Listheaders/treeitem.png"
border = {2,2,1,2}
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = BOX
state = SELECTED
file = "/Listheaders/treeitem.png"
border = {2,2,5,2}
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = FLAT_BOX
state = SELECTED
file = "/Listheaders/treeitem.png"
border = {2,2,1,2}
stretch = TRUE
}
}
}
Just add it to your gtkrc and add your treeitem.png to the Listheaders folder.

As for the button glow on slider,
If you like the glow on my theme
FiftyWays , you may use it and just
throw it in Gimp and colorize it to match your theme.
