I love this theme, should at least be available for other people to download, so here it is: http://www.mdn.fm/files/168245_9tvkq/Neon.tar.gz

Also, I made an Openbox theme that goes well with it: http://box-look.org/content/show.php?content=140717

Not developing this theme anymore. This one is a similar attempt at a dark/blue theme:

Your theme is beautiful also with light or silver colors. One problem: when i change colors to grey the icons' background in the panel remains black. I have a transparent background for my panel, so it seems a lil bit ugly. Also menus are too dark, even if I change colors. I know that this theme was thought to be a dark theme, but can you fix this please, i like lighter so much!
P.s. sorry for my english :)

Surprised just how modern and aesthetically pleasing this theme and color scheme are. I did not expect that.

Hi,

thanks for the Wonderful theme...One question though!

Is there a way i can change the menus to normal? Its a little too bold to my liking.

I agree to this. I like the bold headers of the menus but I would like to have the possibility to get the applications in it not to be in bold font.

Thanks for your work :)

The bold fonts will only look good if you're using a quality font, with what is called "true bolds" (like Lucida, Myriad Pro, Liberation Sans, etc.), otherwise it will look blurry.

So I recommend using a good font anyway, as the bold helps increasing contrast. If you still want to disable bold on menus, edit the file ~/.themes/Neon/gtk-2.0/gtkrc, and remove the line at 15.

See also the included README for more tips on getting better fonts.
