Description:

NoNameRetro theme is based on NoName by TheRob: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/NoName?content=70396. (The biggest thanks goes to him for all of his hard work and willingness to allow these modifications.) This theme is based on an early "beta" version of NoName, so the look of the Metacity window border is significantly different from the current NoName theme. There are quite a few changes to the GTK theme as well. As far as I know, all the work on which this theme is based was released under GPL.

To get a similar light grey text for the menu items in Firefox, edit your /home/USERNAME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userChrome.css file by adding the following:

menubar, menubutton, menu, menuitem, menupopup, popup > * {
color: silver !important;
}

You may also use "white" for a color code if you want it lighter still.

The Panel background graphic is optimized at 36 pixels tall. (Anything taller would look terrible, as would a vertical side panel.) It will scale down to 32 just fine. But if you want to optimize the panel background for smaller panel height, there are 32 and 25 pixel panel background graphics in the archive.

Since I did a major rebuild of the gtkrc file, I'd like to hear any feedback on anything I broke in the process. Please let me know if you run into anything I messed up.

Thanks for the updates. Just one issue I have, though: in the GIMP, the Layers/Channels/etc. window has white text on a white background.

I'll have a look later today when I have a free moment. I might have inadvertently created the problem with one of my other changes.

No you did not!

That is one problem I've been trying to solve
for a very long time... nothing seems to
help....
If you however do come up with some magical
fix for that I'd be more than happy to
have it!

I have a fix for it now....
not sure if this f***s up something else
since I just figured it out.

but if you have a style called "menu" or something....

style "menu" = "default"
#and then add this line there
text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
#remove any other text[NORMAL] first

#and then you should have something
#like this at the end of the gtkrc
class "GtkMenu" style "menu"
widget_class"*Menu*" style "menu"

Hope this helps.

Perfect. Yes, that did it. Thanks Robert.

I just spent all of my free time the last day rebuilding the gtkrc file. I thought that would be a good way to learn a thing or two and possibly get rid of some extraneous code. I still have a lot of questions, but I did figure out a few things as well.

Robert, just a follow up on that Gimp issue. You suggested fix worked great. However, after rebuilding the gtkrc file, I went back and changed it back to ffffff (just curiosity) and the problem was still resolved. That suggests to me that there was something wrong somewhere else (with a class or widget_class assignment?). I wish I could tell you what specifically I did to make that happen. Unfortunately, I had already almost completed my work, so I'm not sure. In an case, your solution did work.

I love this theme. There's a few issues that need attention:

1. Right-click the desktop and select "Create Launcher." (About 90% of the themes on Gnome-Look have this problem. On my themes I either leave the panel as the normal window background, or I use a panel picture that is 2000 pixels tall.)
2. Can the menu backgrounds somehow match the panel background? (Not declaring a picture for the panel background *might* fix this, as well as issue #1.)
3. Install this: http://code.google.com/p/gnome-menu-file-browser-applet/ and notice that the text is black against black. Don't know who's side of the code that problem is on, but it would be nice if it worked. (Problem might well be in the applet's code.)

Thanks for the feedback, Anywhere.

After spending about two hours on that first problem, I had it solved ..., but in the process had introduced another problem I couldn't solve! Then I came back here and noticed that someone who really does know what he is doing (TheRob) was offering his help once again.

So I have implemented his solution, and all seems well with "create launcher" background. I will upload the revision shortly. (Thanks Robert!)

Unfortunately I'm not quite sure what you mean by #2, and I haven't had time to look at #3. Admittedly, I'm probably in way over my head with all of this, but I like to give it a try anyway.

I'll have to see if this is still the case after I reboot, but whatever TheRob's fix did to adress the first issue seems to have also fixed the third one.

What I mean about issue #2: The background for the menus appears to be more of a plain black, while the rest of the panels has a "shiny plastic" look. I, personally, would like it better if everything had the 'shiny plastic" background consistently, but I have seen some themes that have a different background for the menu deliberately.

Great job on the theme! (Whether you think yourself a coder or not.) :)

Anywhere, did ver. 0.9.6 fix what you were talking about? I wasn't using the menubar in the panel, so I don't think I ever understood what you were talking about. Hopefully that was it and I got it fixed. Please let me know if I still am not getting it.

Hey Robert, thanks again for your original work. The stuff you are doing is really great (and fun to mod!).

I'll have a look at that minimize button. I'm not seeing it on my laptop, but maybe I didn't get the exact same shade? And thanks for the heads up on the "engine" needs.

my bad about the button, it just looked so in the screenshot...

It installs great as a theme too btw!

Actually there was something wrong with the minimize button. I had the same graphic for the unfocussed and pressed states (no shade difference). It's subtle, so I hadn't caught it before. I think it's right now. I'll upload the corrected one.

(Ignore my duplicate post; I guess that's what happens when you hit the back button after posting a comment.)

Thanks for the feedback. I'd like to be able to help, but I don't know how to duplicate the problem or what it means yet. Can you give me some idea of how to duplicate that error?

just start twf or nautilus or something
from the terminal and it will give you
the output, gtkrc:2136 means that it's on
line 2136 in the gtkrc file, probably just
some wrongly styled widget :)

Hope this helps!
