This is a wonderful theme and I am enjoying it very much, I just wonder if it would be possible to make a compact version of the theme for those of us on netbooks?

Thank you for your hard work!

PS: This is via bugmenot, so PMs won't work.

I love the dark theme, the only problem I am having is when I rename files, the font is white and the background is light grey. Just a small issue but would be awesome to fix

Thanks for the great themes!

Hi!
I am using this theme currently and I love it.
I am using my own transparent image as my panel image though, and I prefer darker desktop backgrounds.
I'm a noob to theme editing, so I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to change the panel text color from black to white.
Thanks!

Hi!
Thanks for the comment. Did you try use the Aurora Leopard BSM Dark?

The dark version's font's white.

But, if you wanna use the gray version, try do this:

1. Open GTKRC file (~/.themes/Aurora Leopard BSM/gtk-2.0/gtkrc)

2. Go to line 406.(ythickness = 3) Create a new line after that.

3. Paste this:
fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#fffff"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#fffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#fffff"
fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#ffffff"

The "#ffffff" equals white. You can change this for other color, like gray (#ededed) red (#ff0000) or pink (#ff00ff). Use the RGB hex code.

4. Save file and exit. Maybe a logout and login will be necessary.

PS.: The GNOME BAR (Application, Places, System) is a button, and the font will have the color of button's fonts, not the color of panel's fonts. I can't fix it yet. You can use the Menu Applet, it show only a icon.

Thanks! Worked on window list and the clock. I'll figure out how to get the global-menu to match eventually.

For anyone who references this comment thread later and doesn't understand hex, make sure you use six F's for all the aforementioned fields.

Thanks again!

Hi there. I love your theme, great work! But is too bright for me. I made some changes to fit my own liking but I run into a problem:

How to change the color of that text? I made a lot of test-error but couldn't find anything in the gtkrc file.

I don't use OpenBox, and I recomend something when I sure that it's great.

Sorry, the screenshot's great, but I didn't test the theme, so I don't will link it yet.

sorry, as you put the black border under the cover?

Report

The black border under the panel appear when you use emerald theme with compiz-fusion(like screenshots 1 and 2). If you use only compiz-fusion, without emerald decoration, the borders will be normal, not like the screenshots. The screenshot 3 is without any 3d desktop, using only gtk 2.0 and metacity.
