How about a dark toolbar version like Dust Burnt?

I'm not doing much with this theme anymore, but here are the default scrollbars you request.

They are round except for OpenOffice, but they are like that it in Nodoka as well.

I managed to adjust things on my own. I fixed the bugs that I was complaining about except the Abiword bug. I was planning to fork it with the name "Dawn Nodoka" (because I don't like "Dust", which can have a negative connotation).

I have the scrollbars exactly the way I like here.

I'm hoping that you be active with this theme again. This is my current favorite and I think that this is your best work so far. If you're really done with this, I hope you can help me improve Dawn Nodoka.

Here's Dawn Nodoka http://www.filedropper.com/dawnnodokatar

Here you go. Sorry if my file host of choice is kinda lame. I don't know what to use. hehe

By the way, it seems that the Abiword bug is due to my version of Nodoka. I did not get it from the git because there were dependency issues. I can live with it though. Jaunty's just right around the corner so I would be reinstalling the engine again.

Can someone help me change the scrollbars to the ordinary Nodoka scrollbars? Been playing with the gtkrc but I just messed it up.

It's been a while. I hope, this project is still alive. Fixing the scrollbar bug in openoffice and the Abiword bug would mean a lot.

I noticed that tomboy doesn't have the dark toolbar. What do I do to the gtkrc to get that?

Also, I found a bug in Abiword. Some of the drop-down menus are darker than they should be.

You're impressive. You update very quickly. I post a comment then get a new version after some hours. Haha!

I just noticed another bug, though. Scrollbars don't look as intended in OpenOffice.org. Maybe, you can try the classic Nodoka scrolls. I suggest a scrollbar theme that would fit the rest of the look. The scrollbar is flat and 2D while the rest of Nodoka dust has nice deep gradients.

I also noticed that some colors can't be adjusted with gnome-appearance-properties. I want to try other color schemes but I can't because the toolbars won't follow the colors. You may want to check that.

Thanks again! :)

My radio buttons and checks are still blue. How do I change them? I already changed the bg color but it's still blue.

You should make a .deb file to make installing this theme easy.

Not everyone has the skills to install this manually.

Thank's!

just install from repo sudo aptitude install gtk2-engines-nodoka it should work, but maybe not looks exsactly like the screen beacause of the newest git version of nodoka. other than that, i have the same problem, sitting and working with the compiling of the git engine no go on Jaunty 9.04 amd64.

Kind Regards MikeDK

Why not at least use a color from your palette? e.g. #996B5C

Done. Thank you. I didn't think it would be visible with the background gradients on the dark menus, but it looks good. ;)

Theme is exceptional. There's just one obvious thing that I want to be changed here: the scrollbars. It's difficult to perfect the dust style scrollbars. Please use the classic Nodoka scrollbars instead or simply have another version of the theme with the Nodoka scrollbars. The dust style scrollbars don't look polished to me because the buttons don't seem to be in the center and the up buttons seem to be bigger than the down buttons because when I scroll to the top-most part, there's a bigger space for the up button than the down button.

Excellent theme, though. I hope, more people realize the beauty of modern Nodoka.
