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!!

One REALLY HUGE thank you to artist Taner

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!

I do not like this theme near as much as when it was first shown. To much grey now. And firefox on first one didnt black out the history box. was able read. And yes i know about dark fix...but first one of slickness was much, Mainly because the removal of all the grey area's and the brightness of the blue and menu gave it a glow.

This theme is very good..just not as original compared to other dark themes as the first one u published was.

Best Regards
Sig

Thanks for the feedback!

Not sure what you mean with too much grey,
since I have made it more "whiter" in later releases.

I know I have changed a lot in this theme since
I posted it here, I'm finally starting to get pretty
comfortable with it now :) (not too many bugs and
I'm pretty happy with the contrasts of the graphics).

What exactly do you mean is too grey?

Thanks for commenting!

Hey guy,

guess the white you added is what I am talking about. But the main feature that was impressive in the first release was how you used a neon looking color to keep from the problem that all other black themes have I have used have. Seems in first one you color tone it to work all the way around. I am still using your first theme and will for a long time. Maybe after I do alittle more learning I can enhance it myself. also the sliders are best I have ever seen from a personal opinion(shape wise. color is good in either neon which I am using or black which you have them now.

Best Regards
Sig And thank you for the great theme. Much Appreciated.

Very nice. I love dark themes, especially the one like this. I also used Moomex etc, but NONE of these themes I tried is close to SlicknesS.

Black text on black background is a nightmare!

SlicknesS is THE BEST, and that's why I registered an account to post comments :)

Well thank you very much!!

The moomex theme is one of the best done here
at gnome-look, moomex really knows how to write code!

Thanks again.... I really don't know what else to say :D

btw, the firefox issue is fixed :)
I used a fix made by a user here at gnome-look.

Please read carefully the description (copy userChrome.css to your FF folder).

Ahhh beacause of that excitement I forgot to ask some noobish questions ;)
I was looking at screenshots of Your desktop, and I keep wondering - how can I get this ying-yang hmm start button like you have there? And also this Gnome-like icon for Quick-Desktop? How do I change those? Is there some kind of proggy that can do that? (Yeah I'm just starting to learn linux so please bear with me :P)
Oh and one more thing - U have some kind of play-bar (xmms?) on your upper menu bar - I want one of those aswell ;) Is it for music player or video player? And HOW did u do that ? :)

Uhh thats all :) Now sorry for those newbie-questions but I would reeaaallyyy like to have my desktop exactly like yours :)

Well thank you again man!!!

I don't really know what to say :D

I'm very happy that you like my work!!!

well.. the icon theme I use is this one:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/black-white+2+Style?content=72619

it changes the jinjan icon aswell :D

as for the gnome-button it is the main menu and not
the show desktop icon (I have re-arranged the panels quite a bit)

I included it in the package, it's located in the
/gtk-2.0/panel folder named menu something
(I don't remember exactly how I named it)

the playback control in upper panel is for audacious
(based on xmms) and those are just normal png
icons I have associated with commands (launchers)
for example the play button when clicked executes
the command audacious --play and so on....

If you have more questions you know how to
contact me :)

hehe, could be they are compressed 2 times
so first extract the folder inside the archive
then if it's another archive, extract it to
/usr/share/icons (do this as root)

as for the transparency I use compiz-fusion
window manager.

hope this helps!

At first wanna thank for GREAT theme, it is one of the best I've ever seen.

I've found small bug in XFCE: in some gtk apps (gimp. bluefish..) small light streak is located in the upper part of main-menus (this streak is button for open menu in own window) ...
Dunno if this appears also in gnome, but the solution is add bg_pixmap[NORMAL] straight to style "menu" and set it to some dark image

Well, figured out the volume applet doesn't have to deal with the theme. But as far as the dark text, I've tried it several times with different options, and supposedly the script says the text is fixed, but not for the drop down menus. Like I said previously, the drop down menus in firefox(i.e. the url drop down menu) have the same background color as the menus in gnome(for example the start menu, or if you right click on something), so the text is unreadable.

okey, I'm sorry, I don't use firefox myself

I will provide another fix for it when
I have one figured out :)

your theme rocks!! one problem though, my volume control applet from the panel started failing after installing your theme. when I log in to the pc, error pops up saying the applet had to shutdown. Another thing, the text for the drop down menus in firefox is black, and the drop down menu background is black. the text will turn white when you point your cursor over them. I will try to run the darkfix script again

Thank you!

darkfix should fix the firefox problem...
I can check it out.

You are the first to have the volume applet
problem (as far as I know) , it has always
worked fine for me (I don't see how that
could be related to the theme), could you
try to re-add the applet to the panel and
see if problem is still there?

btw, what distro are you using?

Thank you for the feeback!

Hi there, love your theme, a real breath of fresh air from all the vista look-alike themes out there. I'd really like to know what icon theme you use? thanks

Also, What values did you enter for the transparency in the panels? And where?

Thanks

Thank you very much!!!

the icon theme is this one :

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/black-white+2+Style?content=72619

for transparency I use compiz-fusion window
manager, just enable it and move the mousepointer
over the panel and hold down alt and then scroll.

If you don't have compiz fusion then get it here:
