suggestions very welcome!

PLS! tell me what you think!

!!!!IMPORTANT!!!!!

To install:
1.Download the file to your desktop
2.Right click the file and select extract here, then another archive pops up,do
the same for that.
3.open a terminal and run these commands:

first
sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/SlicknesS /usr/share/themes

second (this one fixes firefox,don't need this for ff3, only 2 This fix is made by user twrock, so if he wants me to delete it i will)
cp /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS/userChrome.css $HOME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome

4.Open the theme manager, you can now
see the SlicknesS theme as a theme,
when you click on it , it suggests
taners amazing wallpaper he made for this theme!!
click apply to apply the wallpaper!

the icon theme it suggests is this one:

One REALLY HUGE thank you to artist Taner
for his fantastic wallpaper!
Last changelog:

10 years ago

2.2.2 probably the last update, this should
fix the message of an engine "" not installed
I can't try it myself if it works (since I don't have
gnome installed) so if anyone would be kind
to let me know if it works, it would be kind :)
This will probably be my last fix as I'm not on
gnome anymore.

2.2.1 Fixed my previous F**kup. (at least I hope so)
(it's been tested on ubunut 7.10). If anyone still
has any kind of problem please be so kind and let me
know!

Thanks!!!

If you followed my install instructions it should look
fine with synaptic and other apps that recuire
root priviledges :)

As for using clearlooks,,, I have thought about it..
But I wouldn't get the looks on the buttons that
I want :)....sry.

Feel free to experiment as much as you want tho ;D

hope this helps!!

Sorry, but I really prefer the color scheme of the older versions (darker menu). Could you add an alternative download for this theme with the original color propieties, please?

Menues will be black in next version :)

I just noticed how ugly they are when not
using the compiz transparency :)

Yeah! I'm getting it too... I spended like 2-3 hours
yesterday trying to solve that..... ...nothing!!

BUT! it's still beta, so I'm not gonna spend a lot
of time trying to fix that, Since it's a bug in firefox
and not the theme :)

(firefox doesn't obey gtkrc but userChrome.css
and now that don't even work so I have no clue...)

Thanks for reporting tho!!!

if someone has a fix for that I'm all ears!

And my favorite theme gets even better!

EXCEPT... I think that you lightened up the menus a bit too much. They now look a bit washed out. But that's just a statement of personal taste, not a criticism.

Thank you!

Your compliments is really appreciated :)

As for the menues, you are right, it's just that
I use compiz-fusion so I get some sort of transparent
effect on the menues and they look better with
that now than they did before.... I will improve them
to look better without transparency to next release!
