Description:

The Cyclotram is "the atomic-powered, rock-boring vehicle" used in the movie "Unknown World" to tunnel deep into the earth's crust in search for a habitable environment to live in after the nuclear holocaust...

I used gconf-editor to put the close-button on the left side of the titlebar. It is NOT part of the theme but if you like it, open up gconf-editor and go to apps->metacity->general and look for "button_layout".

This theme was originally based on "StrangeMatter" GTK theme:

While you may have not intended it to be specifically I find this to make a good "kids" theme.

This is one of the coolest gtk themes I've seen. A couple of technical details you might want to consider are the error msg's on the concole like:

.themes/Cyclotram/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:864: Unable to locate image file in pixmap_path: "Menu-Menubar/tbuttontb-off.png"

.themes/Cyclotram/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:867: Background image options specified without filename

Other than that, I think it's great!

The updates seemed to fix all the little flaws, I don't see what else you could do its close to being perfect. These colors flow so good together, and its easy on the eyes. Oh yeah maybe having the panels set to go good beyond "25" like someone else posted.

I'm real picky about what theme I use. I been using the same one for 3 years, but this one is about to take its place. PLEASE keep up on this, and I will for sure follow your work!!!

This definitely has potential. Especially for some of the "cartton" style icon sets, such as Gartoon, Buuf, or garGANTuan. It kind-of reminds me of the old "Comix" style for KDE3 (which sadly doesn't appear to have survived the transition to KDE4).

Can you make this theme work better with panels that are larger than the default size, or vertical?

hey, thanks for the comment. i was thinking the same thing about the cartoon-like icons...

i'll work on the panels... maybe by making square buttons or something...

theres still a lot of work to be done on this theme so keep checking back.

I'll be honest and say that I personally don't care for the theme too much, but I must say that I like that font you've got on there. What font is that?

"World of Water"...

Nope, still don't care for it. I will admit, I think my tastes are different than most other people on here. About that font though, is that in the 6,760 fonts package I've seen on here?
