Description:

A dark Gnome Theme. :-)

Extract the file Divinorum_Theme_Pack.tar.gz before installing.

Specific program settings
Here are some fixes for common problems using dark Gnome themes.

Firefox
If web forms and controls appear dark and unreadable you need to add the provided file "userContent.css" to the "chrome/" subfolder in your Firefox profile. It contains settings to get the default colors back.
Install the theme with Gnome Theme Manager and type the following in a terminal:

mv $HOME/.themes/Divinorum/userContent.css $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/

Note that the place of the chrome directory may vary on different Linux distributions.


Pidgin
In gaim/pidgin chat window there is black text on black background...
To fix this create a file named "gtkrc-2.0" in .purple dir in your home and put the following in it:

style "Custom"
{
base[NORMAL] = "#292B29"
}
class "GtkWidget" style "Custom"


Open Office 2
To get a white document background color instead of black, go to:

Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Appearance > Custom Colors > Document background

For dark themes Open Office 2 uses a high contrast icon theme (due to automatic icon settings). If you don't like this, do the following:

1. Open "Tools -> Options dialog -> OpenOffice.org -> View"

2. Change the icon theme from automatic/null to a different one.


Ubuntu
If you are using Ubuntu and buttons look wierd, it's necessary to install the package "gtk2-engines-pixbuf”. Type in a terminal:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf

The same is valid for all the themes based on the engine "pixmap".

Gnome-Panel
You need to specify the background image for the panel(s) manually.

Right-click the panel and choose:
Properties > Background > Background image
and browse to /home/username/.themes/Divinorum/gtk-2.0/Panel.
Choose the panel-bg.png.

Thanks to nanoflower and Neutronium for providing the basis for this theme.

It won't show up in the main theme menu. What you need to do is hit the "Customize" button on the right, then manually select "Divinorum" on each of the tabs.

I have just installed this theme, and getting used to all the darkness. One thing I noticed immediately was that the rectangle for Maximise and Minimise button are more or less the same size. At least, I'm not able to tell the difference. It would be nice if the Maximise button had a bigger box.

This is a really nice theme and worked out well as far as Pidgin and Open Office. Was wondering if anyone had problems changing colors back in Eclipse? I manually set them but it did not take.

This is the theme that completes my desktop. This is so sharp it kills.

Great work I have blue halo window border and FC-FIno icons with this and it looks great the blues match perfect.

Good job

Great theme, but like all dark themes, fails to have the necessary white openoffice.org paper, and sometimes makes applications hard to see.

My panels are solid black - the background image isn't applied - even with the pixbuf package installed. Does the pixmap engine also have to be installed also? It isn't installed in synaptic.

Very nice theme though!

Thanks!

Did you forget to credit anyone? I am wondering whether you designed this all by yourself, or whether you relied on the hard work of others who designed a base theme for you to use.

You are right, It's based on one of my previous themes which is based on Neutronium, so credits go to Nanoflower.
