Hi CM,

That place is for bugtracking not for comments. Got it. My bad, sorry.
What is your experience with the WinSplah. Does it really slow down boot up?

I'm using the default version because I like the white, but the BLACK taskbar (xfce) is so ugly...

Ok, I can change the color of the bar but not of the "Whisker Menu"-app

If you want a white panel and whisker menu, delete all lines since

#Whisker-Menu theming

to

### EXTERNAL FILES ###

in the /gtk-2.0/gtkrc file. Or, if you prefer, you can just change the hex values.

Thanks for using our theme!

I just discovered you also may have to remove the line import "Apps/gnome-panel.rc" since it also alters the theme's appearance.

Hi again,

I was thinking just about what the subject says before the little grey issue. I had to give priority to little grey but now that it's been settled, let me say that I find the Windows 10 bootsplash awesome myself; haven't tried it yet but if it's like in the shot, I'll have it. Linux and Windows are not ideologies to me. They are operating systems. Dogmatic thinking is alien to my brain.

OK guys, I'm planning on release v0.7.9 really soon, but I want to have your opinion. Should we keep the UI like it is now, with white everywhere or should I include a little of grey here and there? Have a look at v0.7.9 here :

Hi CM,

For heaven sake, please, please NO little grey here and there.
PLEASE KEEP IT ALL WHITE !!!

Thank you

PS: When I saw the little grey here and there screenshot, I had to drink a glass of water and open the window for fresh air to come to my senses.

Mantelo todo blanco, queda espectacular.

Como comentario al margen, te cuento que pasé de Ubuntu (a la que seguía desde Warty) para instalar Linux Mint, solamente para disfrutar mejor de este tema.

Celebro tu estupendo trabajo.

Saludos,
Juan

Hi there,

I'm afraid I have to agree that:

All white = beautiful

Little gray here and there = not so beautiful (rather ugly)

Report

elbullazul

Ok, since you guys prefer to keep it all white, no problem, the theme will stay full white.

Hi CM,

I think that if anyone would have liked little gray here and there, he or she would have dropped in by now. Little gray people are elswere. No lines, no borders, no little gray are the very essence of this theme. Lines, borders, little gray or all gray are things of the past. There, that's my opinion and those who like the UI of the well-known would most likely agree.

Thank You

hi,
yeah let it be white.
that is one of the most important good points of the theme and a colour change like this will give you problems with theme concept.

you'll face unecessary design problems very soon. in the screenshot we see perhaps one already. (metacity colour to menubar)

focus on current design of it now, a grey version is a new theme.
and its even more difficult than the current one to mantain.
