How it is said in the explanation of the theme, this is not the exact reproduction of the mockup theme.
Some features that you can see in the mockup actually cannot be done in Gnome, such as the gradient in windows background or windows that remain rectangular while others are curved, or the different visualization of the nautilus environment.. I hope that lot of things like these can be fixed or added in the next release of the Gnome DE, actually the potentiality of the GTK engines are quite restricted and this is the best can be done actually ;-)

I'm not interested in Mac4Lin icons because my interest is to make a completely other os-free theme.. but i'm glad my theme is good in different tastes, it's done for this! ;-)

strange.. are you sure you have emerald installed? If no, first you have to install it with sudo apt-get install emerald.
If it's already installed, try open emerald manager then import the Hardy theme.

Big bug. When you edit a file or folder name, the text is invisible. You can't see what your typing! :(

yeah i've fixed it for the next release changing the windows background with a brighter color. Now I'm waiting to find a good new icon theme for the 1.0 release that will be up next days, suggestions are welcome! I'm thinking about some orange-like icons, actually i choose Tangerine that is actually an Ubuntu supported deb package.. what do you think about?

I can't get this working either. I've read the GTK part of the readme. It says put the Hardy-Mariux folder in ~/.themes, which I've done, but it doesn't show up in the themes window when I open up appearance, all that is contained in the Hardy-Mariux folder is /gtk-2.0/gtkrc . no other files exist which seems wrong to me... any suggestions?

It is correct, the Hardy-Mariux GTK folder conly contains /gtk-2.0/gtkrc.

After you put the Hardy-Mariux folder in your ~/.themes folder, just open
System->Preferences->Appearance, then
Customize->Controls
and in the list choose Hardy-Mariux.
This will change the theme.

Before Installing, you have to untar the Hardy-Mariux.tgz file, then into the Hardy -Mariux Directory you'll find a readme about installation. ;-)

i followed that and it still didnt work. In both gutsy and hardy there is no app called theme in system-> prefs, and the app that is there "Appearance" can't find a usable file.

After you put Hardy-Mariux in your home/.themes dir, open

"Appearance"-> Theme -> Customize-> Controls

then select "Hardy". Your GTK theme is now ready.

I still can't get it to work :( and i really like this theme too. i wish that someone would make a reconstructor image with this theme as the default, because i must have something on my system that hates this theme

Very strange. However i'm planning a reconstructed Ubuntu release with this theme as default.. when I'll do it I'll inform you!

That makes days I've been trying to improve your theme, with small operations with the screenshots. Maybe you shoud try what some shemes like these give inside a real Linux GTK theme:

Dark one:

Window borders: black, glossy (sorry for "vista-allergic" people here...)
Toolbar background: Maybe a green/yellow tint, not too saturated should do. Just try it, I don't really know for this one.
Window background: Mmmh, many choices for this one. Try with a mix of grey and yellow/orange (near #FFCC00, less bright)
Text: maroon, quite black
Highlighted text: BG: dark grey FG:orange
Scrollbars: black with gloss, tint with a very small amount of blue.

Bright one:
Window borders: same as existing Human Theme, maybe the hue factor could be nearer from yellow than maroon.
Toolbar background: black, with a little amount of green
Toolbar text: bright yellow
Window background: pastel tint, maroon/orange.
Text: black or deep grey.
Highlighted text: BG: very deep red, FG: bright orange
Scrollbars: I don't really know, I am thinking about twilight/sunset colors, but not too bright, they mustn't be aggressive to keep eyes focused on the main part.

Thanks for this, next days I'll be working on this, maybe creating a new different theme from Hardy Theme.

The GDM and the Wallpaper are awesome. (notice that I add a GDM Theme based on Glossy Human too!)

This is like a gimpy Vista theme. Please, why does everyone want to copy vista glossy black crap...it looks like the worst color combination ever with the brown anyways. Sorry...

Sorry if my theme hurted your sensibility.. I didn't intend to ;-P

However how surely you've noticed the guidelines for Hardy Heron's artwork are of black/brown/orange colours, so it'll be something similar to my theme i guess..

When are Ubuntu people going to finally get off the Orange / Brown / dark theming mentality? Dark brown swirly wallpaper; bright garish orange icons... where does it end? It's a "love it" or "hate it" proposition. I for one, hate it! A more pleasing compromise is in order. If your theme should become the Hardy standard, it will be the first thing to go upon booting the system.

People with "earthy" attitudes find it appealing. As pointed out, people can change the look totally straight after installation. If Ubuntu changed their colours totally, it's a fair bet many people wouldn't like that either. So I guess it really comes under the banner of "get over it".

What's wrong with the orange / black?

Better the obsolete blue / white ~ green / blue?

It seems to me that your contributions are all on the green style Mint ..

Gnome-look is full of themes, choose what you prefer, without pontificate on Ubuntu's users ..
