There is a work around,
comment out the fg[PRELIGHT] in style "default" :)

I'm just wondering, which version looks better..

whoa!
so wha? white is now the gtk fg prelight default? If not (I thought it was black)
where is the white coming from? I'm really confused now but that doesn't suprise me when concerning gtk theming hehehe

I like the white.

I know this is somewhat drastic, but have you considered changing the active elements from grey to a flashy glassy color? I find this theme stunningly beautiful, but after a while it gets kinda dull.

I'm sorry, English is not my strong point,
so please specify:

1. Did you mean the pressed button (that's the only element that turns to grey when active)

2. flashy glassy color ?? I don't dig it.

Sorry for taking so long to respond. I had to use MS Windows for a couple of days.

By "active grey elements" I mean for example the elements named "themes" "nazwa" "Utworz folder" and the scrollbars in the preview picture. (I'm not sure it is a good idea to change the scollbars - it might be too much...)

By flashy glassy colors i mean strong shiny colors. Sort of like the download and purchase buttons on this page "http://www.stardock.com/products/windowblinds"

I can totally understand it if you don't share my opinion, I just think it would really light up the theme.

Thanks for the great work. I'll still use your theme anyway :-)

As a matter of fact I burnished a lot of widgets, so they are a bit shiny (maybe not glass/liquid but metal),

but did you try 0.3 version of Otcrop?

Report

Yes I'm using Outcrop 0.3 now and i like the changes a lot. I never thought the dark grey did quite fit in, but that has been disucced earlier in the thread.

But I still think using colors on the active widgets would enhance the theme. Maybe green or red. (blue is great but I think it is getting worn out as so many themes use it. After apple and ms started using it everybody is using it)

(I just learned a new word (widgets) so excuse me if I use it wrong)

Very nice theme! What would you say about changing the text in the menu item that is selected to white, or light grey, so that it shows better against the grey?

Report

then fg[PRELIGHT] wouldn't be seen in other widgets like buttons. It's an unfortunate limitation in pixmap/svg gtk themes. You can't choose a special color for many of the different widgets. The menuitem is one of the ones you can't...at this time.

Great theme, but there's a problem at least for me when checking a multiple checker (the sqare one, not the round one) it's very very difficult to see if it's checked or not. You could make something more different for a checked and unchecked widget.

u're lucky, the check buttons (so as the option ones) are to be completely redrawn :)

Great work, one comment I have though is that in Pan the task bars at the bottom (that move as files are downloaded or articles are loaded) don't really show up well as they blend too well into the background of it, without any real indication that there is a progress bar there, making this app look a bit odd.

Thanks!

If you meant, that there is no trough under the progress sider, then I must say:
"It's a feature, this theme just looks like that, it was intended"

If I missuderstood you, please explain again or show me a screenshot.

I love this theme, its been a long time since I came across one so original and fresh, and first of all, I must give my congratulations!

But, (and there always is, isn't there? :p) I have to say I'm sticking with 0.1 - Although I don't mind that the theme has been lightened in the later versions, I very much dislike the changes to the scrollbar - I liked them being dark as they were in 0.1. Am I the only one with this opinion?

one more thing,
I also liked the dark scrollbar color more, but was (and still am) afraid, that it would be too contrast for 'Joe the user',
well I'll take a chance again :)

Hi Witek,

i must say i prefer the new scollbars. Exactly the change i've been hoping for since the ones from 0.1 were too dark for me.
You are doing very original stuff, that's for sure!

Ok, I'll confess.
Those scrollbars (0.1) so as the check and radio buttons, have been a part of my other, never published theme.
That's the reason of the confusion.

I've uploaded Outcrop, when it was not ready -- and have made new scrollbars in a hurry -- good shape, but wrong color sheme.

Perhaps easy-to-follow instructions to switch dark/light scrollbars are called for? Of course I'll wait to see what happens in future versions, I'm sure you have more imagination than me :) But for now, I'll stick with 0.1 - I can't really imagine the scrollbars getting much better than they are there :)

My intention was not to make the scrollbars ligher, but to change them,
I'm not 100% satisfied too, so expect futher changes in scrollbar -- in certain direction :)

no you're not the only one. While in something like rhythmbox the dark scrollbars *were a bit chaotic but that's expected given the scheme so I understood. Now, they don't fit the scheme at all IMO but I appreciate the effort to make it lighter. Too...Ana? The new light scrollbar takes way from its originality IMO. I still use .01 as well :)

This is gorgeous!

I liked the first go around and this new version is impressive!

Two things:

1. There is something just a little "funny" in the upper left hand corner of the scrollbar handle. Can't tell what it is, but you can see it in the new preview. Looks almost like it is dog-eared.

2. Any consideration for putting together an xfwm4 theme for those of us using Xfce? The metacity theme adds a nice sense of depth to the overall theme, which is not available under Xfce's WM themes.

Thanks for the great work!
