This theme looks really neat! Although I am having problems installing it.
I've placed DarkCandy in /gnomenu/src/share/gnomanu/Themes/Menu
But when I go in to propterties, your theme won't show up. What am I doing wrong?

This menu is the only reason I use Gnomenu. It was well thought out and it's just enough flash to be pretty without going overboard.

Hi, thanks for this great theme. After installed, I found all text auto transfer to my default language(Chinese Traditional) well, but "Recent File" not.

so, I modified the themedata.xml
<Tab Name="Recent File" ... Markup="...Recent File ..." ... />
to
<Tab Name="Show History" ... Markup="...Show History ..." ... />

I don't know what different between "Recent File" and "Show History". but it works for me. thanks

Great work!! thanks.

After I install it doesn't look like yours. The icons in favorite, Application, computer are different from the picture. The text is also black.
The panel is looking great in the picture! Which theme has been used? Please provide the link.
Thanks

I'll need to have a look at the icons.

As for the panel, it is Avant window navigator with it's default black theme.

Add Gnomenu ppa from here:
https://launchpad.net/~gnomenu-team/+archive/ppa

Then go to Synaptic Package Manager and install the package gnomenu.

or open a terminal and paste the following:

sudo apt-get install gnomenu

Once gnomenu is installed, right click on the gnome-panel(the one at the top or at the bottom, whatever you like) and click "add to panel". Find gnomenu at the list and add it.

Once you added gnomenu on the panel, right click on it and choose "preferences". From there you can install my theme.

Hope that helps.

I added the InvertTextColorOnSel='0' as you said. Maybe I did it wrong. If you have time please take a look at it.

that option works but you have to set the text color to white (#FFFFFF)

I changed the colour. If you got time, you may test it.

also i noticed that people may not want the text color on tabs to change automaticly if the tab is not selected so i added the option in xml to not change by adding
InvertTextColorOnSel='0'

to the xml tab code

Thanks for that. I was trying all day to find a way to do that.

Do you know where can I find documentation for gnomenu themes?

This is my first theme for gnomenu, so it is not perfect.

the readme may help but creating themes is still messy in the documentation

Can you, please, give me an example. I'm not very good at editing xml.

one thing , this theme is not instalable with the theme installer because the content type in the xml is bad, should be "Menu" not DarkGlass
