When using Conky with this theme, ( in 1024x768 resolution ), choose background style to fit screen.
Then edit "conkyrc" file ( included in download ),and add line "maximum_width 230", for optimal look.

Conky 1.5.1.1 version uses "conky.conf" script. Rename included script.

Hmm... that's a problem all right. It looks like it's a problem with the normal OO icons not being used. I'll try to figure out a solution ASAP. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

In the meantime you can download this theme:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Industrial+white+black++?content=91638

and use it. The colours work with the LCARS stylings, and it'll do as a work-around until I get my theme sorted out.

I think I've fixed the problem. For some reason OO.org uses the same text colour for the control buttons and for the text-entry on the page.

I've forked the GTK theme over to here:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=92578

LCARS-Desktop now uses LCARS-GTK as its default control theme.

If there are any more GTK-related bugs please leave comments over there.

Glad you like it. It was a fun weekend project -- one that looks like it's snowballing into a much larger one!

If/when you find glitches with the theme please post a comment and I'll see about fixing them!
