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,

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!

Could you update the conkyrc download to be current with the one in your screenshots? The one that you link to has no background (to provide contrast to the text) and is styles slightly differently (labels like System are smaller and not bold and some of the horizontal rules are missing). Thanks!

How do you get the grayed background?

Without that there isn't enough contrast to discern the letters.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I'm sure it's not since freemind seems to
be a java app and this is a gtk theme :)

I just wanted to say thanks for your nice work! I have a question about your Technix theme. I followed the instructions for the artwiz fonts, but I can't seem to make them work. I tried to use fontforge to convert them, but that seems more difficult than it sounds. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks! Glad you like it!

well, as far as I remember I have never
given any instructions on the artwiz fonts :)

I just tell everyone who asks to follow the
readme in the package (that is what I did)

You can try looking in the package manager
if you find the artwiz fonts there, but if
not, then the only way is to try to install
from the package :)

hope this helps

Hi Robert,
first of all - TNX for this great theme!
In my opinion it's one of the completest and great looking themes for gnome!

One Problem:
in Evolution every second "marked" message has white font with white background - is there a way to change this behavior?

For some reason firefox3 isn't grabbing the GTK theme. I did the firefox fix you posted. Is there anything else I can do?

Report

firefox 3 works fine with this theme :)

If you have some firefox theme installed
then try uninstalling it, if that does not
help I don't know.... ...be sure to
use the latest ff3!

hope this helps!

Hello.

Im totally noob with linux, i have been using it 2 days, and i was searching for some nice theme to use.

After a little complications i succesfully install it and i have to say that u have done a great job.

Maybe for u're next work u can put some "newbie tutorial" for those like me that don't know how to installs things like icons or fonts.

And...thanks again.

PS: Sorry 'bout my english, im from chile, so this isn't my native languaje.

Hello!

your english is fine!

Thanks for you compliments man.

I think there are a lot of tutorials
on the web explaining exactly that so
I don't see any reason why I should have
one too, one good tutorial should be enough
no?

Thanks again!

First of all, I really like this theme and your other dark themes. I have been looking for dark themes for a long time and these are it. I just have one question, is there any way to make the icons in the menu larger? I have tried using the Large version of the
Black and White 2 Style icons, but for some reason they keep getting scaled down.
-Thanks!

Well thanks for the compliments!

The big blackwhite version is supposed to
make toolbar icons bigger, not the menu
ones (if I have understood it correctly)
and as far as I know this theme has no problem
with that :)

However to make the menu icons bigger
(this will f**k up the thing that the icons
appear on a lighter space of the menues)
edit the gtkrc file and delete the line
that says
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16"

or change 16 to 22 or whatever you want!

hope this helps!

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04 with this theme (looks wonderful, might I add). I want to make my Gnome menu transparent with the fancy blur like you have there. How do I do this?
