Yeah,it is a matter of taste,and this is my style.I think it is nicer this way,but if you like,you can change buttons with toolbuttons. Thanks for comment anyway.

This is one of the best themes i have ever used: clean, modern, EXCELENT design, no-incoherent-colors, optimal size controls, very sober.
Also, one of the things i really like of your theme, is that you have writen themes not only for metacity as most of the designers. Im an openbox user and its VERY annoying to have to go trying to match a new gtk theme with a foreign design on the window manager. Voted good.

Thanks. Keep up the great work. Sorry my ugly english.

Finally a very nice theme for Gnome! There are a number of issues I would like to report and some suggestions to give though. Note I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and of course these may or may not appear in other distros or releases.

1) I would prefer 32x32px icons in the menus like most themes have.
2) The clock applet has rounded edges which is awesome but the hard, rectangular edges still exist on the outside. It would be awesome if you could get rid of these outer, rectangular edges.
3) The volume menu in Ubuntu Lucid is having some issues with the background colour of the slider not matching the black menu.
4) The theme by default seems to refer to an icon theme which you probably have on your computer but that no one else has by default and which doesn't seem to be included in the folder with your theme. Perhaps you could at least add another link to your gnome-look page linking to where that icon set can be downloaded from?
5) On Nautilus and nautilus-like apps a little rounded arrow looking thing shows up in the lower right corner in the location where you would drag the window to enlarge it. I don't know if it is there intentionally or not but my opinion, for what its worth, is that it would look a lot nicer not having anything there.
6) Also in Nautilus when you click on the 'Icon View' tab its menu is a black menu like all the rest of the system menus. This seems to be a common issue in all dark themes I've seen so far. If it would be possible to change just that specific nautilus 'menu' to something lighter that matches the greyish colour of the rest of that interface instead of having it be black I think it would look a lot better.
7) Would it be possible to make all the drop down menus rounded sort of like you did with the clock-applet? I have never seen it done but if you could I think it would look great for just the bottom two corners of all the menus to be rounded!

I love this theme though, it is great! I just hope that it can become even better! If you need any screenshots or clarifications from me let me know.

Thanks for such an awesome theme,
Brian

Thank you for your comment and I will answer to your questions:
1)Size of the icons depends of size of the menu,and I don't like big menus.
2)It is impossible due to limitations of gtk theming.
3)It is only in Ubuntu(and Ubuntu derivatives),all other distributions have no this problem,I will try to fix it,but it will be difficult because it is only Ubuntu issue.
4)Ok,I will put the links to icon themes.
5)I do not know exactly what you mean,screenshot will be very helpful.
6)I think it is possible to get,but I don't think it is nicer,if anybody else would thinking like you, I will consider to change it.
7)It is impossible due to limitations of gtk theming.

Thanks a lot for this great theme. The only comment I could make is that with my eyes, I sometimes have some difficulties to distinguish the scrollbars. Maybe the scrollbars could be a very little bit darker ?

Anyway thanks again !

I don't know,I can see it very well,only if you have some problems with sight.Then you should use themes with high contrast,this is low contrast theme.

Great theme, only thing that bothers me is scrollbar, which is too similar in color with its background, I often lost the place of scrollbar when browsing a long web page. Could you possibly consider to improve it? Thanks.

I second this. The slider is using the same color as the scrollbar background, and it's difficult to figure out where it is. Nice theme though.

Oh, and CPUFreq applet needs a little hack for its text to be visible on the panel:

-------------------------
style "applet-text" = "panel"
{
fg[NORMAL] = "#f0f0f0"
}
widget_class *CPUFreqApplet*" style:highest "applet-text"</code>
-------------------------------

Put this somewhere in the theme code (main gtkrc or the panelrc, idk).

Note that I'm not bashing your astonishing work with this theme. These are just a little advices regarding usability, which is the most important part of any desktop.

The theme is very good.

It is similar in some aspects to the default KDE4 theme.

And I think it fits good on Nautilus-Elementary.

I probably would try to fit better Openoffice apps.

What is problem with openoffice,I tried on 3.2 version and not found any problem.
I will probably make version for elementary nautilus.
