After installed this theme, only the icon of the current active window on the gnome panel looks clear. Others have some funny lines on them. Like shown here:

Can anyone help me with this? Since I really like this theme.

Any chance of having different colours, Like a nice orange instead of the blue?

Hi all,

I'm an xfce4 new user, I don't know how to install any theme.

I downloaded this theme and decompressed it into ~/.themes but it won't work!

What can I do?

Hi.

Your problem is, that this theme is for Gnome, not for Xfce.

Sorry, but you can't use this theme unless you install Gnome.

Please don't.

I love this theme, but don't wanna see it look anymore like Vista. We already have far too many Vista and OSX themes and not nearly enough original content.

I just downloaded the windows media player 11 theme for VLC media player while using elegance (great theme) and noticed that they are exactly the same, especially the title bars (unmistakably)... im guessing that's what this theme is based on? btw, any idea how to fix the openoffice font thing yet? (i fixed thunderbird the same way as firefox)

In the readme file it says to put userChrome.css in

/etc/firefox/profile/chrome/

That didn't work for me on Debian Etch. I had to put it in

~/.mozilla/firefox/[random].default/chrome/

Wow, great job! Very clean and professional looking, thanks!

I don't know if this theme is still maintained but if it is, I kinda found a glitch when changing the properties of panel items.

It "looks" like the image(s) used for the panel repeat themselves vertically throughout the preferences. A screenshot is here: http://thumbq.com/store/7419-launcher_e.jpg

Not a big deal, but kinda hard to see...

Thanks again :)

Very nice theme, but after installing it, I don't have the same effects.
Does this theme use a specific engine? (I'm on a fresh install, and I don't have lots of gtk-engines installed)
