great theme, just the one I was looking for!
just one thing: after installing it some programs (like synaptic) stop using any themes al all. looks weird...
is there any way to fix it? may be some problems with gtk? ubuntu 8.04, standart themes work correctly

it's because sudo-needing applications cannot use the themes in your /home/.themes dir.

Just unpack the "Hardy-Mariux" GTK theme in your /root/.themes dir.

the all sudo-needing apps will use this theme as default.

thx
by the way grey text (blocked stuff) is almost invisible on dark background.
and look at this emerald theme: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/UbuntuStudio+Emerald?content=59198
it suits your theme well

I'm sorry but I'm failing to see how this is even close to will's mockup. your theme is so shiny that it hurts my eyes. I really don't see what part of the mockup you've incorporated except for a yellowish bg and making everything else black.

I tried to create a theme similar to willwill100's mockup using the capabilities of the current GTK Engines. Murrine seems to be the most suitable for doing this, and so i used it. Obviously Gnome actually doesn't support, for example, a gradient bg or iner transparencies, so i try to balance usability of the theme and mockup base-aspects.
It's not a remake of the mockup, I just picked up the idea from it and then create the theme. Still working on it..

im really impressed someone turned my design into a real theme, great!!
Ive been watching this project develop and its starting to look really good now, but i would say (as many coomented on my designs) that the top of the window bar is a tad too think and the scroll bar looks quite harsh, i think i would tend towards a smooth gradient for that. Keep up the good work!!

Thanks willwill100 for your comment.
Yeah i'm still developing this theme and I tried a customization of it on my Aureus-Mariux theme (take a look!), i think i'll change few things like the scrollbar or the bars in selection in main menu with the next release!
Thanks again for your great mockup, base of this theme!

I wonder why this is so underrated... one of the most complete and best works here. And the first dark theme that did work with firefox. Thanks! If there were a score-system, I would rate it 10 on a 5-scale :D

thank you very much!
I think it is so underrated because it was low scored while it was developing, and a lot of people dowload it on deviantart and then forget to score it here on gnome-look.. but for me its enough seeing that it have been dowloaded more than 10000 times!
Thanks again for your support! if you want to try a light version of this theme download "Azureus-Mariux" here:

i'm still developing it!

how can i remove the drop shadow? the theme makes my laptop screen to dark, so almost everything becomes unreadable. however, after reusing my human theme, there is a drop shadow under the panels and behind my window decoration, the shadow is an ugly striped pattern :(

Report

strange, never happened to me. however if you want to delete the drop shadow behind your windows i think you have to put to 0 the opacity of the emerald windows decorator shadows. Go in
Emerald Theme Manager->Edit Theme->Shadows then put Opacity to 0.
This should avoid the shadow bug. It's the only shadow present into the theme and the fact that when you turn to Human it persists, all point to Emerald..
Hope that works.

Hi! I really like this theme. I generally prefer lighter themes but I really like this one. Anyway, I use a few KDE apps so I made a KDE color scheme to match "Hardy" so my KDE apps blend in. You can get it here:

Maybe you're using the 0.9 release, try the 1.1 release, this bug has been fixed in 1.0. The text is now differenced from the background..

Hi there, just a few easy things that would make the next release so much better.

1.) Make the default windows font and the font in the tool bars smaller! The font looks like crap to be honest when it is that big, i know you can change it manually but to have it come default would be alot better.

2.) The minimize and maximize and "X" buttons need to either be smaller or change to be more like the ones in the mockup. They are to big and bloated atm.

3.) Icon set needs to be "Glassier" to give it that appeal. And you need to use the same background as found in the mockup.

4.) The orange roll overs that appear like in your screen shot need to have a gradient to them. All these little things help to give the desktop a better look.

Cheers.

I would like to see even more from the mock up. The icons, wallpaper, and everything just have an awesome seemless flow to them.
