Description:

A clean theme focusing simplicity and usability. Bears some resemblance to KDE's oxygen (original idea).

Based off ElegantBrit (by fmrbpensador), but much has been changed. Almost none of the original art remains.

Still some small bugs remaining. Any input would help.

This is an excellent theme except for 2 minor issues (maybe it's just me though.)

Most of the panel applets do not follow the panel color. The notification area, the window list, the show desktop button, etc, are all of a lighter color than that of the panel. The gnome menu and the shutdown button are OK.

As for the check boxes, currently when I hover over a checked box, the hover image shows a blank box, and I have no idea if the box is checked or not unless I move the mouse away from it. For me this is really a usability nuisance.

I have noticed the panel issue as well. I am working on it.

As for the checkboxes, there is only 1 option of an image to use during hover. So I could either use a blank box, or a checked one. Either way, it looks kind of weird from a usability perspective. This is a limitation of the pixbuf theme engine. I'm not yet sure what to do about it. Any suggestions would be helpful.

That sounded really negative, which wasn't my intention. I really like the look and feel and speed of this - there are just those things I mentioned, which I think can be done better. :)

Don't worry. I appreciate constructive criticism. I'm still working on it. I will be making these mods.

The panel is nice, apart from the hardcoded background. It's the colour of selected menu items that irks me. Black background with dark grey text. Very hard to read for me.

This looks much better than before. :) Thank you.

I was wondering, if perhaps it would be possible to give some window parts a more prominent border? Like this, perhaps..

Right now, I think it looks a little unfinished somehow.

Made some changes. It that better? Otherwise it may be a specific widget that has this problem.

You're referring to the listboxes and the like? If yes, then I was planning on doing that. Just haven't got around to it yet. :-)

BTW. you can disable the background of the panel from "Panel/gtkrc" by commenting out the 2 marked lines.

Hardcoded panel backgrounds killed my inner child.

That, and the menu items. Black and grey, are completely unreadable to me. I tried fixing it myself, but just ended up screwing up the theme, sadly.

Are you referring to the menu bar or the items on the menus?

You can switch off the panel background by commenting the marked lines in "Panel/gtkrc" in the theme's folder.

You can also disable themeing of the panel by commenting the line "include Panel/gtkrc" at the end of the "gtk-2.0/gtkrc" file in the theme folder.
