Looks good, but one minor issue here is tha the scrollbars won't render properly on Opera, with native skins, including the default. -- The Scrollbar troughs render fine however, and scrollbars render fine when using non-native skins.

Merlwiz, thanx for the PPA's for this. I had previously tried to install this, and one of the lighter variations worked, but the other two didn't. Well, I added the PPA's to my software sources list, and downloaded and installed them, and now, I have the dark Nimbus theme on my computer just the way it's supposed to look. :-)

However, there's one thing I think could be better. I looked in the gtkrc file for this and couldn't find it, so I guess I'll ask you. Where does one change the text color on the panel(s) for Dark Nimbus? I'd prefer that to be white for the sake of contrast.

Oh, and Merlwiz, lemme guess...you're the guy that created Mint Xfce, right? Nice work indeed, both on that and this. :-)

Well it's been awhile since I made a theme and couldn't find what you needed. :(

Yes, I make Linux Mint XFCE CE.
Thank you.

EDIT: just curious why the colors in a selected menu item are different than they should be.

Download the archive.
Inside there is the source for the debian package.
Extract that and open the terminal inside that folder (gtk2-engines-nimbus-0.1.2)
In terminal run
sudo apt get install devscripts
Then run
debuild -us -uc
It'll tell you to install the dependencies if you don't have them installed.
Run the command again until you get the package made.

All of the other Nimbus themes on here aren't fixed so that the folders all display correctly. Finally somebody actually knows what they're doing. Thanks!
