Description:

This is a dark theme [duh], that features crisp lines, stunning orange, blue highlights, animated progressbars and more.
I recommend that you install Oxygen refit orange version icon theme, because it looks great with this theme.

Other recommendations:
-Change Gnome panel colour to #404040, with transparency slider under the 'r' in transpaRent
-Change openoffice background colour to 'White'
-Make Firefox not use the colours in the system theme. This will not affect the colours, only the text in the window
-Set terminal window background transparency slider under the 'r' in the scRolling tab

Please give any feedback. I am willing to make modifications to any problem areas of the theme.

If you wish to modify, you may do so. I only ask you to mention me. [theubuntuguy]

Ok,

So I have learned how to make a login screen for Ubuntu, but I really need to learn how to make a GTK. Other than manually changing all of the .xml code, is there any other simpler ways to make a gtk, or do you just have to be amazing with .xml, which would mean I would have to grind at it forever trying to learn the code and not mess up my computer? Any suggestions?

The best way to start is to modify someone else's theme first. Look at the syntax, then the objects etc. Change some values and see the results. If you screw up, GTK will revert to a default theme, so you can't really mess up your computer. Once you understand it, try from scratch!

You can change minor things like that in the customization menu of the appearance preferences menu.

Change the focussed text color from blue to something more clear...
Great theme otherwise :)
