ABOUT:

This is a modified version of my Darkness theme but without rgba enabled. A metacity theme for windowborder is included in this version as well.



CUSTOMIZING & OPTIONAL SETTINGS

Colortones: Each of my Darkness gtk themes has 10 colortones to choose from. Since there are a rgba version and a non rgba version i have chosen not to make each colortone into a separate theme since that would result in 20 different themes.

Inside the gtk-2.0 folder you will find an additional folder named "colors". To change the colortone simply copy (not cut/move) the 2 files (colors.rc + panel_button_prelight.png) from a specific colorfolder and paste into top of the colors-folder, replace the existing files.
Example: copy the files from gtk-2.0/colors/red and paste into gtk-2.0/colors/

After you have changed the color you will need to reload the theme or simply log out and then back in.


Gnome-panel: The gnome panels has a default background. If you wish to change this background and/or make them transparent follow these steps:

1. Open the file panel.rc inside the gtk-2.0 folder.
2. Add a # at the beginning of the line: bg_pixmap[normal] = "pixmaps/panel_bg_default.png"
3. Open up the panel properties window and click "Background".
4. Choose a background image for the panel.
5. Reload the Darkness theme (or log out and then back in).


The theme has a few different panel backgrounds included inside the gtk-2.0/pixmaps folder, each are 32px high:
panel_bg_default.png = Default background, not transparent, made for top panels
panel_70_btm.png = Transparent, bottom panels, opacity settings at 70
panel_70_top.png = Transparent, top panels, opacity settings at 70
panel_85_btm.png = Transparent, bottom panels, opacity settings at 85
panel_85_top.png = Transparent, top panels, opacity settings at 85


Open Office: The theme has a small fix included for Open Office when using a dark theme. The actual fix may not be perfect but it should work fine. For now i have temporary made use of the NOX theme for gtk2 but with a few minor changes in base colors and also making it possible for it to read chosen colortones of the Darkness theme.

Install method 1:
in terminal, cd into the fixes folder included inside the theme

mkdir ~/bin
cp ooffice ~/bin/ooffice

Open the file ooffice located in ~/bin with a suitable texteditor and uncomment the correct line wich corresponds to install method 1 and location of where darkness theme is installed.


Install method 2 (requires root-privileges):
in terminal, cd into the fixes folder included inside the theme

sudo mv /usr/bin/ooffice /usr/bin/oofficeBIN
sudo cp ooffice /usr/bin/ooffice

Open the file ooffice located in /usr/bin with a suitable texteditor and uncomment the correct line wich corresponds to install method 2 and location of where darkness theme is installed.


Please note that the ooffice file located in either ~/bin or /usr/bin must be set as an executable file.

My icons are a bit mixed. In general it is based on Ubuntus Humanity icons but the folder icons are Pry System with a few minor modifications on some.
