You can do this in your userChrome.css for getting that effect of white text on blue bg. (Trial and error; may be not all the following is required)


menubar > menu {
color: HighlightText !important;
}
menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"] {
background-color : HighlightText !important;
color: MenuText !important;
}

Are those translucent menus? How the heck do you do that with GTK?! Is that a Cairo trick?

Hi,

A very nice theme. First one that really interested me after the tish themes was published.

Too bad it's so slow on my laptop. Did you tried to use clearlooks insted?

Hiya,

I am really impressed by the screenshots,
I tried it out - unfortunately it is rather slow: I can see how the window is created when I unshade the window, I can see how it disappears (the process)...

If I am moving a window...it's not so fluently (ati drivers etc installed).

If I am starting nautilus (home folder), it's not so fast like with normal theme.
Of course not...but you feel it...

Again concerning Firefox:
How to "hide" the menu in the menu button? Actually I can't move the menu anywhere if I am in the customizing mode. And: The menu font of Firefox is black (not white) - bad contrast.
I have Firefox 1.0.7.

If you can - make it faster! :)

Well...

then I have to set my minimum cpu speed to 1 Ghz, hehe (Centrino, Speedstep: 600 Mhz to 1.7 Ghz). Then it's cool :)

Some things I have noted:

Wrong font style in menus
Again to the menu: With some programs the menu font is (normal) black and not bold.Examples are Firefox and OpenOffice.org2(-gnome).

Screen of Firefox (1.0.7):

Contrast problems in "lists"
In nautilus it looks nice, that the table header have no special color, but in some openoffice.org dialogs it's a little bit confusing:

Dominating stock icons
I use your theme with "Vista-Inspirate" Icon theme ( with:http://gnomelook.org/content/show.php?content=28352 ). I think your theme overwrite some toolbar (stock icons?), for examples of nautilus. How to change it? I like the other icons more.

Color of activated buttons
To my mind the color of activated buttons (like in X-Chat), this very lite blue, turquoise is a little bit...I dont know :) I would have chosen another color :)

But all in all, really great work!
Respect, gnome looks fantastic, thank you :)

In Rhythmbox the catalog's "Artist" and "Album" fields have the same colour of the entries... can you fix this?
I can send you a screenshot by email if you need it.
Anyway... good theme!

P.S.: What fonts do you use?

In the first screenshot there are transparent menus, how did you get that? Also in the second the corners are more rounded than with what I get on my system....

Any ideas?

Beautiful theme BTW!

Inspired from Vista or not...some may disagree but I never thought I would see the day that gnome look so damn good! Now this is quality work!

When you get the icon set complete (Please please) I will finally get to show gnome off to everyone.

Maybe when you have time, I think this would make things complete.

1. GDM and Splash

2. A complete vistabut icon set

3. Vistabut gaim icons (the default look bad)

* btw why the name Vistabut? I mean it has some Vista elements but it is still clearly gnome.

thanks

This theme looks really awesome :)
What is it whit the menu button in the firefox screenshot? Is that a firefox 1.5 feature or an extension? I like to have maximum space when I surf, I especially hate the menu bar which I don't need 99% of the time.
