Darkness theme for DockbarX
DockbarX Themes
Score 67%
Description:

My first theme to upload here. This has been tested and works fine with DockbarX x.0.30.

And yes, it is more or less a copy of windows 7s Superbar with some minor differences such as color tones etc. So if you are strongly against anything that reminds slightest of windows do not download.

The main purpose of this theme was NOT intended to copy the whole looks of a windows desktop. It was rather to create a theme for DockbarX wich suited the rest of my desktop, and for once windows actually had something that fit my taste.

Feedback is very welcome.

Would you mind if I add it to the (soon to be published) dockbarx extra themes packages?


Two small suggestions:
1) Add own default colors for the popup window.
2) Set color5 to 'name="Not used" default="#000000" opacity="no"' since you don't use it.

I like your work!
Can I ask you a question not in a theme? How to make appearance of windows glass,like you did?!

I guess you mean the transparency of the actual windows?

That is done with rgba enabled for windows along with the murrine engine for gtk.

This link shows how to activate it in general:

Or you have the link to my darkness gtk-theme with rgba enabled:

Love how well it integrates with your gtk theme(which looks seriously awesome).

The overall desktop appearance is fantastic and my first reaction was 'I want that'(and I'm not personally a fan of dark themes).

Good job, buddy

i am glad you like it, i have begun working slightly on a brighter "version" of my whole Darkness set, but it is still early in the process and far from finished

Will try to get the emerald theme up soon. As for the GTK theme it is not 100% complete yet, and to make it more complicated you need to download those extra things to enable rgba for murrine themes (can't actually remember the name of them at the moment).

But to make it worse you also need to recompile it to change the opacity levels for all parts to blend in nicely. So i need to write some guide on how to install the GTK theme before i complete it.
