Description:

My first GTK2 theme. It's based on RoyaltyBlack. Metacity, panel background and start icon are included.

To make panel transparent go to panel options and choose panelbg_black.png as a background.

To use my start button run gconf-editor, go to: /apps/panel/objects/object_0/
choose custom_icon, set a path to startbutton.png and tick use_custom_icon .

There are still few bugs with font colours.

Incredible work. The Schwermetall-Dark-Ice is not bad as well but the taskbar cant compare.

Please fix the text - just make it darker or just plain black so it wont be hard to read. I am planning to use this for long time :D.

As you wish :]. I will make metacity frames in next version I'll also try to make the theme less bright. I'm a novice in these things, especialy creating metacity, so it take me much time.

Hehe, I actually noticed that too and modified the metacity theme a little bit.
Just download the Schwermetall-Dark-Ice gtk and metacity theme from my blog. :)

However, and I've noticed this before, going to the path you described in the gconf-editor is totally blank; there aren't ANY values there for me to edit at all.

P.S. I'm using Linux Mint 3.1 Celena.
