Last changelog:

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!

Those where actually fake :)

Just images I loaded in the panel properties :)

So the images I made where for the overglossed
theme and the images where only 1280 px wide :)

sry to disappoint you...

While adding a launcher item to gnome main menu, I found this problem in the select icons dialog box.

Just wanted to ask, since I don't seem to get
that box/window to pop up and therefor I can't see
the bug , and if I can't see the bug I can't possibly
fix it :)

so please, could you explain exactly what button
you clicked on to get that window to show???

the "new item" button opens the launcer editor for
me which works fine :)

Thanks!

Hi Rob,

I found another one in GIMP:

This happens when I try to resize a layer in gimp.

Thanks for reporting!

That is caused by the same bug, I have a fix for it
,however, that removes a feature I like myself,
(that the button next to textentry kinda integrates with the entry), I can upload a new version
with that bug fixed, but I still prefer it with the
bug and the feature myself, I don't know, you tell me :)

Hi Rob,

I am sorry I cannot imagine what you mean by that feature, is that convenient for you to send me a screenshot comparing these 2 designs? If so, pls send to xrfang@gmail.com, thanks a lot!

Those bugs will be very tricky to fix tho!

Since firefox doesn't obey gtk, and the cropped
menu button because I don't know the exact
class of that widget,,, I will try to figure it out tho :)

Thanks againg!!

I am really supprised by the speed you fix bugs!

Just another suggestion: the SlicknesS emerald theme's window title font is too blurred, and very unconfortable for the small title font setting.

I suggest you modify it in the theme. But this is trivial, I just did it in emerald theme manager.

For the sake of Rob's high-quality standard... ;)

N.B. It seems this thread is much more active than the emerald theme so I posted here.

I know it is VERY difficult for dark themes, and as I said SlicknesS is already the best as regard to quality (design is also the best, but there are many excellent designers on gnome-look ;))

I found another black on black problem, it happens with FireFTP (firefox plugin).

http://www.flickr.com/photos/24141133@N06/2295699124/

This may not be the theme's problem but fireftp's.

Anyway I just post it for your reference.

Thanks Rob!

Really wonderful work. I'm using it with Xfce and I was wondering if you planned an Xfwm4 theme.

If not, may I ask you for this feature?

Thnx! Keep up the good work!

Thank you!!

Well, of course you can ask :D ,there is one problem tho,

I don't have any idea on how to port this theme to
xfwm4 , however , if you do use compiz/beryl
and emerald , you can dload the emerald theme :)

get it here:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/SlicknesS+Emerald?content=73972

If someone knows how to port it and is willing to do
it , that would be very welcome :)

I'll probably give a try when I'll find a moment. Compiz has some problems with Xfce, and I don't like too much the heavy mess of compiz effects :)

Thank you for the answer. It is nice to meet "user-friendly" developers as you :P

Sorry to be a pain :) I found another problem with the Gimp:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/24141133@N06/2294013538/

Don't know if it is gimp specific, or a general GTK theme issue? Can you fix that?

Thanks a lot!

First of all i want to say that this theme is absolutely THE BEST lookin black theme I've ever seen...Really REALLY good job! :)

I use your theme with firefox add-on called Nasa Night Launch (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4908)
And together they look really cool (firefox is almost black everywhere) , but this Nasa add-on has really awful scroll-bar's :/, and your newest theme's scrollbars are so fuckin cool I was wondering is there any way I can merge them?
I mean I want to have my firefox all black (like when using this Nasa addon) with your sexy scrollbars at the same time - is it possible?)
Or maybe u can make some sexy black-firefox add-on like this Nasa Night Launch aswell?:D:D:D
Just a thought ;)
thx!:)

first of all: a really great theme. For a long time I used clearlooks because it just worked. Your theme works nearly as good as clearlooks, but it looks much much better.
The only things I do not like so much and maybe some others to are the sliders!
The horizontal sliders are ok but the vertical slider handler looks a bit strange. Maybe something symmetrical would look better for example a circle, or whatever you can imagine. So just an idea hope you think about it.
As I said before I used the clearlooks theme and since I use your theme all stock images are lost. I does not know if this a known bug, but I think this is a bit pity. Also it is not only your theme which allows no stock icons. I think just the gnome themes like clealooks ore glossy allows stock icons. Maybe it is possible that you and the other gtk-theme-designer finds a way to make this possible :)

Thanks!! :D

First, I think your icon theme is something
revolutionary!! I think you started something new
with making that (really slick and just black and white) icon theme!
I think that's where I got the Idea to make an
black white theme....

As for the range, sure, I try to figure something else
out (wasn't really happy with those anyway),
if by stock icons you mean the icons on buttons?
If so then "it's not a bug, it's a feature", to enable
the button images just run in terminal:

sudo gedit /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

and on line 14:
gtk-button-images = 0

change that to

gtk-button-images = 1

save and re-apply the theme :)

This theme is THE best dark theme I've ever seen. It is so delicately designed and well implemented, every aspects of detail has a fine touch...

However, I found one annoying problem:

I cannot fix that using the darkfix script...

Is there any ideas Rob?
