    Clearlooks-Phenix is great, but using the Opera browser some of the graphics are scrambled or not right.

    The drop down menus (File, Edit, Bookmarks etc) have no border.

    Navigate to Tools > Delete private data > 'Delete private data' dialog box. It has scrambled graphics, and other dialog boxes have odd graphics/colour.

    I took some screenshots but cannot post here.

    I'm using Unbuntu 12.04 Precise.

    Yes. I tested with Clearlooks-Phenix 3 for GTK 3.6, and I don't see bugs.

    I found that in some cases back background color can appear when enabled overlay-scrollbar.

    i just guess.

    i found bug with my theme, if

    GtkViewport {
    background-color: transparent;
    }

    and if widget path is GtkWindow.GtkFrame.GtkFrame.GtkAlignment.GtkViewport
    and overlay-scrollbar enabled, then GtkViewport have black background.
    I check this several times, and every time when overlay-scrollbar was enabled, GtkViewport background was black.

    also, one user report same as this bug with my theme, but he left discussion before i found this bug.

    finally, i have found problem with black background in opera!

    to solve the problem, you need following style
    GtkLabel,
    GtkLabel:insensitive {
    background-color: @theme_bg_color;
    }
    instead transparent

    with my theme has have the same problem.

    It'really beautiful. Do you think you ever produce a version with brown colors like the old Human-Clearlooks style. It would be wonderful!

    In the new version 3, I rewrote the theme to allow easy creation of color variants, so it will be a lot easier now.

    If you are subscribed to my theme, and receive e-mails notifications for new versions, you'll know when some color variants will be included.

    I just realized that fonts are invisible (probably white) for those days for which there is an event in the evolution calendar. These days are typically highlighted in e.g. bold.

    Is there anything I can do to change this?

    Thanks and best regards.

    It should be fixed in Clearlooks-Phenix 3.0.1 (released a few minutes ago). Thanks.

    On Fedora 17 with Gnome 3.4, I had to uncomment the code under the "Nautilus" section at the top of the gtk-3.0/applications.css file, so that the text shows up as white with a black shadow. With it commented, text was black without a shadow and hard to read with some backgrounds.

    Great work, this template is one of the best I've seen that works with Fallback mode. Thank you!!
