I like this version - good job but I seem to have a problem with check buttons. When set to true their captions render as white text on the light grey background making them difficult to read.

On a quick personal note, I changed the panel background image to one which mimicked the window titlebar. The original one just seemed not to fit with the theme. Voted up.

Thank's for letting me know I'll be update shortly but in the mean time...

Here is a solution that works for me - Please try it out I edited the radio check style as follows:

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------

style "radiocheck" = "button" {
text[NORMAL] = @selected_fg_color#shade (0.535, @selected_bg_color)
text[PRELIGHT] = @selected_fg_color#shade(1.06, shade (0.535, @selected_bg_color))
bg[NORMAL] = shade (0.92, @bg_color)
bg[PRELIGHT] = @selected_bg_color #mix (0.2, @selected_bg_color, shade(1.1, @bg_color))
fg[INSENSITIVE] = darker (@bg_color)
fg[ACTIVE] = @active_color

engine "murrine" {
contrast = 1.0
reliefstyle = 3
border_shades = {0.6,0.2}
border_colors = {"#ededed","#d1d1d1"}
textstyle = 2
focusstyle = 2
}
}

widget_class "*<GtkRadioButton>*" style:highest "radiocheck"
widget_class "*<GtkCheckButton>*" style:highest "radiocheck"

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me know how that works out for you thanks :)

Try it now please I just repacked and reloaded
the archive.

if you have the old zip you need to make a folder entitled gtk-2.0 and then just drop in the gtkrc file and image folder.

Thanks :)

One of the best themes lately and that's saying a lot as we have been spoiled recently.

If you would like a stronger contrast on the selected tab text:

open up the gtkrc file in a text editor and change the value of the active tab to @base color
