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!

Are you sure you followed my install instructions
above?

There is a 0% chance it works if you did not.

If you did , then try :

chmod 666 /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS/Slickness.jpg

(do this as root)

if that don't work then maybe 777... if
that don't work then I have no idea :)

Nice!
Now I've got to find a suiting icon theme to this... damn, I like my ultimate gnome. I L O V E D the menus in this though.

Would there perhaps possibly be any tiny chance that someone (as in the creator-someone) might create a gray version of this or might possibly allow someone else to edit this?? :#
I'm truly sorry, but I LOVE my ultimate gnome icon theme as well and I can't give it up.

Great! Thanks!

Glad you like it!

As for icons I'm currently using the
black-white2 set that I have the link to
above... currently waiting to get my hands
on these:
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Titanium?content=75038

It will be pre-released any time now :D

as for grey version I'm not sure what
you mean.... I made a black version:

Hi,

in gtkrc you have following lines:

fg[SELECTED] = "#FFFFFF"
bg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"

Can this be right? For example if you select a folder within gftp, you just see a white line (white text on white background).

I changed
bg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"

to

bg[SELECTED] = "#3d3d3d"

then everything works fine.

Thanks!

I wasn't sure if that broke anything bug now
I know!

Since that was my desperate try to fix the
gnome-control-center bug....
(I had it 3d3d3d before)

Have to figure out another way then!

Thanks for reporting!

Hi,

Absolutely great theme, I have on all my computers.

Why do you advice to install the theme this way:
"sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/SlicknesS /usr/share/themes"

when gnome is able to install tar.gz file directly from the theme manager? theme manager does not make it available for all users, but it is probably easier to install it for most users.

A few questions:
1. which font do you use in your screenshots? it looks wonderful
2. Where do I change the bg-color of menus/tabs? I would like to have these much brighter?
3. I would like to have tabs in applications and windows list in the taskbar not so round. Where can I change this?

Sorry for wanting to change your theme :). Thanks a lot

Well thanks!!

There are many reasons to why I advice people to install that way... to name a couple:

1. when install with theme manager the
update-manager (in ubuntu) and synaptic
(in ubuntu) and other apps you run as
root will show flat gtk (unthemed) if
installed with theme manager.
(so people will start asking about these
apps why they look different, when
they do it now I just point them
to my instructions... problem solved.)

2. Artist taner has made a fantastic wallpaper
to go with this theme and this is
a good way for me to tell people
how to get it running.

3. As you said this installs for all
users.

4. It really helps me help users when
I help them with problems related to
the theme.

The font is artiz-snap , get it here:
http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/

Actually, this theme does not support
changin colors.....yet, maybe in the
future if I feel like further developing
this theme.

This is a pixmaps theme, so you can't
adjust the roundess (you'd have to
manually edit the pixmaps loaded by
the theme.)

and no problem. sorry I couldn't make
a more customizable theme!

Hope this answers your questions!

In some older screenshot you have round corners on panel at left and right side how I can do this? thx

//I hope that you understood what I want:)

Yeah that was overglossed....

Anyway , there is no option like that,
I had just made some images that where
1280 px wide and had rounded corners and
loaded them manually in the panel settings.

There is no way to get rounded panels
without doing that : - )

If you want to have rounded corners
just edit the panel-bg.png in the
panel folder and load it in the panel
properties.

Hope this answers your question!

The styles of my ubuntu menu have disappeared..What can I do?

You mean that you have clearlooks style on
the menues?!?!?!?! if that is the case
then please try first to re-download the
theme and re-apply and if it still happens
(you might have to restart x to fully apply
the theme) ,since that bug should be fixed
in the latest 2.2.1 version. If the problem
still is there please provide info on
what distro and version of gnome you are using :)

I'd be greatful!

chmod 777 on an image is plain wrong.

Try 644, it should work.

Sure :D

I don't know, I didn't get it to work
with nothing when I made the instructions
(I have tried afterwards and one doesn't
have to do anything at all to the image :D) so I was mad and I just thought, what
the hell... it doesn't damage the system in
any way either so.... well, I will edit
the instructions.

thanks for pointing that out tho!

Thanks for this wonderful theme. Excellent work. I had to tweak the emerald glow around the windows into a shadow from a glow though.

Here is what i did to fix the flat gtk unthemed look in Ubuntu 7.10. I edited the /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS/gtk-2.0/gtk2rc file. commented out the section that says clearlooks and added the section that says ubuntulooks. Now all seems to be working ok.

Quote:
engine "ubuntulooks"
{
menubarstyle = 2 # 0 = flat, 1 = sunken, 2 = flat gradient
menuitemstyle = 1 # 0 = flat, 1 = 3d-ish (gradient), 2 = 3d-ish (button)
listviewitemstyle = 1 # 0 = flat, 1 = 3d-ish (gradient)
progressbarstyle = 1 # 0 = candy bar, 1 = fancy candy bar, 2 = flat
animation = FALSE
}


# engine "clearlooks"
# {
# colorize_scrollbar = TRUE
# reliefstyle = 1
# menubarstyle = 2 # 0 = flat, 1 = sunken, 2 = flat gradient
# toolbarstyle = 1 # 0 = flat, 1 = enable effects
# animation = FALSE
# style = GUMMY

# Set a hint to disable backward compatibility fallbacks.
# hint = "use-hints"
# }

Thank you very much!

Yeah that works like a charm in ubuntu..
however, there are other distros... so
I have to figure out another way!

Thanks for posting that info here!!
so ubuntu users can benefit :D

It seems that this needs the absolute
newest version of clearlooks and that is
why people are having probs.... I will
try to figure out another way...
