I love these themes!

Although a red version of this would be nice as well...just something to consider.

You should be able to see the white fonts. I don't know what is wrong? Did you change something? Try redownloading again.

So... hey, where is this actual gtk theme. Maybe I'm dense, but I can't find it anywhere in the packages you offer here. My guess is that you packaged the whole thing together, but forgot the gtk theme -- the main package only has emerald themes.

If I'm just not looking in the right place, could you show me the way?

They are in the folder called .themes. Just put it in your home folder.

and i think it might be better if u change ur beryl shadow into other colors, say blue green or orange, rather than black.

Wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. I was scared that every gnome/kde-theme has 64x64 icons and gloss and plastic everywhere.

I'm still new to this, and frankly I haven't installed a linux yet, so could you please tell me what softwares display that system monitoring and those shortcuts in the lower corner in the lime-screen?

The system monitor is conky and the shortcuts are just gnome desktop shortcuts.

Just what I have been looking for...

I don't have time to make the perfect theme, so thanks for your work, you have made it for me.

You have a very especial taste: I appreciate somebody who does not use to have icons into the buttons (bigger size buttons are childish and those icons too), likes dark colors (not burning my eyes), not using brown (the shitty color...) and uses square widgets (cleaner).

Therefore: keep walking !! thanks, thanks, thanks.

I have to say, this is probally one of the better images of flux ive seen in a long time, i think the backgrounds have a lot to do with it, can you link to them as well?

Congratulations on the theme, very fine work indeed.

I commented on Customize.org and gave you a perfect score, so I'll add my kudos here as well. By the way, how is it that a port of truth, with some of the ugliest panels in linux history garners more praise than this perfect port? Just like before,keep up the good work, yours are the best themes around.

By the way, does anyone know how to mod a panel to make it look like the oversized top panel in the original Mire V2? My icons get huge when I increase the size.
