Description:

Concept
This time I wanted to create a darker theme with a pixmap bg. Further all control-elements (buttons, scrollbars... etc) should be transparent.
To create this overlay effect and getting it displayed correctly wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and this may cause problems. This makes the theme pretty experimental as well... :)

Contents
+ 2xgtk
+ 2xmetacity
+ xfwm4
+ 2xemerald
+ gdm
+ userContent.css (Firefox3)
+ NowPlaying screenlet theme

GDM
If you have a widescreen monitor, please rename the file "bg-wide.png" to "bg.png" in the gdm-theme directory.

Metacity
Because metacity resizes the titlebar if the title font is too big, I recommend to use the font "snap" as window title font. With other fonts try sizes around 7 and 8.

Note
To enjoy the theme in all it's sexyness be sure to copy the userContent.css to your firefox profile.
If you find any bugs please let me know (if you have a minute a screenhot would be much appreciated).
The pattern for the bg is from theinspirationgallery.com (modified of course).

Screenshot
The wallpaper (also used as bg for the gdm-theme) is from mandolux.com (slightly modified). Thx again Mando for letting me use it!

This is a really nice idea, and great theme!

(just noticing how hard it is to tell what radio button and check button is selected... small problem)

Really nice theme, love the pixmaps colors.. Just two thing which annoys me.. I think the dropdownmenu color looks a bit out of place. It's to "glossy" compared to the rest of the theme. Also widgets (look at google.com) is a bit unreadable.

Thank you!
I'll fix the dropdownmenu bg in the next release (probably today).
You are right about the widgets, they're getting stretched or something. Probably just a mistake in the userContent.css.
