Description:

Let's just try this again ;)

Nodoka elements are removed. I've come to realize these added asthetic benefits of nodoka are outweighed by new users ability to install the theme. All nodoka styles reverted to murrine. This should be easier to install now for the masses. :)

A modern refresh to the Human look utilizing the best aspects of various engines. This truly creates an original asthetically pleasing desktop theme. The theme is dark, but just dark enough to contrast with the bg_color adding subtle hints of orange/peach. This stays true to the Ubuntu look using some of the past favorite colors with a new twist. Clean and something you have not seen before.

*** Many thanks to the support of the various community members whose input have helped shape the design of the theme. All of their suggestions are making this theme progress quite nicely in the spirit of Ubuntu. Contrary to popular belief, brown can still be beautiful. ;)

The GDM and wallpaper submitted by mickyz integrate very well with this theme.

Hello,Your theme is just the very one I looking for but I'm using xfce and the title bar can not be changed through metacity(because I didn't install it)
Thanks very much !

Really started to show the signs of a well designed, finished theme. I am one of the commenters from the wiki (still working on generating that palette between doctors appointments), and not really intending to take any kind of credit here, but it looks as though some of my partially implemented suggestions are really shaping this up to be a great theme. I am also a fan of the "Warmth" theme and Redux is beginning to show some of the elements that made me fall in love with that theme as well. Keep up the great work!

Oh, and I only have one more small request. Could you please also include a Netbook Remix version of this theme when it goes final? I use a netbook a good deal of the time and would love to have better integration with UNR.

Thanks!

Will do. I have a Dell Vostro A90 running Karmic UNR, so I'll this out shortly.

Awesome. I do a good deal of journaling and spend the majority of my time on my Eee PC because I move around a great deal throught the day and having a UNR version will give me a great chance to really put the usability of this theme through it's paces, because I've noticed at the moment that the tabs are a completely different color than the metacity (black) and don't integrate well into the theme, and worst of all don't display close buttons on the tabs (of course that could be the fault of the Humanity icon theme as well).

Thanks again!!

Congratulations for the job. I think that Redux is evoluting in the right direction. Unfortunatly, the contrast of the Font colors and the metacity should be enhanced, in my opinion. I think that the scroll bars are over saturated too. But it's the first Dark-Brown theme that doesn't hurt my eyes.

PS: Sorry if my feedback isn't positive, but i think that we should exchange thoughts to improve things. Keep going, you are in the right way !

Two thumbs way up for the Humanity plug :D

I too, have removed Nodoka from eGTK. I'm going to have to look in your theme to see how you got your scrollbars in that style. Mine still aren't how I want them.

Maybe for the sliders, try the circles instead of the bars. I don't know why, but I've always felt they look more classy :)

Keep up the good work. Karmic needs a new look!

Thanks Dan.

I origially had Breathe in mind for this theme, but while testing Humanity icon set for kwiii for possible inclusion in Karmic, I loved how well the set integrated and redesigned accordingly. The saturation of Breathe integrated better with Human and some of my darker themes.

I'm hoping Humanity makes it in for a possible replacement or alternative to Human. I'm also wishful that the community is receptive to Redux and possible inclusion as a community theme.

I will add those suggestions later and keep up the good work as well.

This theme is potentially great,but I think you should work on just two things,in my opinion:
1- The orange color makes white text selected less readable .
2- Better integration with the icons humanity

PS:Sorry for my bad english.

Can you post a screenshot of the problem with white text?

And if you get a chance, pull from trunk. I modified a few aspects of the theme to integrate with Humanity.

Let me know of this is better for you?

Thanks for the feedback.

I truly want to make this a great theme and believe it has the potential of change the community has been longing for quite some time.

Is not a real problem,I only think that a black (or brown) text is much better than white...take a look at this image:

It's very difficult to read "menu" word with white text,I hope you understand what I mean...:)

I have to look into the the combo boxes as they are using a white fg prelight. I can fix that, but it's not really that obstrusive. Thanks for the feedback. Anything else please advise me.
