Hi, congrats, great theme. But, how to make OpenOffice.org fits in it? I have no icons at all, only text :(

Yes this is a very common problem with virtually all dark themes. Apparently the people at open office are working on it and expect to have removed that bug by about this time next year (ubuntu 10.4) quite a wait though still i admit. Unfortunately there is no way to get it looking exactly how it would in a light theme however you can get some buttons with a bit of fiddling in the prefernces, you'll just have to set the icons to high-contrast. Once in OpenOffice go Tools>Options>view and change the icons there.

Best of luck,

James

Hi Whipo, i always welcome criticism (how else can we improve) i would appreciate it if you could tell me which parts in particular you object to or how you personally would have approached this theme differently.

...IMHO the original Overglossed-Theme is beautifuller with the blue. Not only black.

I think your off to a great start.... also knowing and being willing to do additional work shows character.

I think its great the way it is with the exception of two things. The progress bar and the scrollbar. Black on black makes things hard to see. I often have to squint to see where the bar is on the scrollbar so I can move it.... maybe a little bit of lighter color might help with this... dunno. Its the same with the progress bar.

My two cents.... keep up the good work.

Looks a little plastic, but off to a great start. Check out Neutronium DeepBlack for some ideas on how to smooth it out. Can't wait to see this thing develop!
