Ok let me know if this is it. I believe I repaired the issue with the border colors.

Thank you for your input! - Feb 21 2008
I see what you mean, I will look into this. Thanks! - Feb 21 2008
I repaired the shading issues I believe you brought to my attention. If this isn't it please let me know.

Thank you for the input! - Feb 19 2008
I found by downloading the compiz configuration settings manager through synaptic and changing the opacity through there was the best way to get transparency effects.

You can change them from there this way:

System>Preferences>Advanced Desktop Effects Settings
General Options then Opacity Settings tab
click add and in the new window that opens type one of the following:

dock (make opacity 85, 90 or whatever you like)
This makes the whole panel transparent, icons included, so don't make it TOO transparent.
dropdownmenu = Menus
popupmenu = Right Click Menus/Single Start Menu
tooltip = Tool Tip Popups

This way offers you control over any theme you like :) - Feb 18 2008
Wow, thanks!

I used a footprint of one of your themes to create this one. Love your work!

If you like the having a windows like feel to your Main Menu then this may be your answer.

Right-click on the panel where you want the Main Menu to appear and select Add to Panel

In the new window, scroll down to Utilities and select Main Menu

Click Add and it will appear in the panel.

Right-click the Ubuntu icon and select Move to move it to wherever you prefer ( I like it to the left corner)

If you haven’t removed the Menu bar (Applications, Places, System) yet right-click and remove

To customized the main menu icon:

1.Open up the terminal (applications>accessories>terminal)

Insert this code In the terminal (applications>accessories>terminal):

Code:
gconf-editor

The configuration editor opens, then open these folders in the left pane (apps>panel>objects)

You will see a list of objects in the pane, locate the one that says (menu_object) next to object_type in the right pane.

Once this is located scroll down and locate the use custom icon entry and select it.

Scroll back up and double click the custom icon entry, this will open a new window asking for the path to the icon you wish to use. Enter the path in the value field and click OK

( If the icon is in your pictures folder in your home folder the path would look like this:)

/home/USERNAME/pictures/start.png

Good Luck!

Being a graphic artist and not a coder, I decided to download a few themes and take them apart (to see what makes them work).

After studying a few of them and tinkering with the gtkrc file that is included, in the GTK folder of the theme I downloaded, I decide to replace the graphics included of the themes file I downloaded.

What I would suggest is to open all the images folders and look inside (do this for both the GTK and the metacity folders). Then replace those images with ones of your own creation (make sure that they are the same size as the originals, until you become more familiar with themeing). Name the new images you produce with the same names as the ones you are replacing, or you will need to alter the gtkrc, panel.rc and other files in the theme to reflect those new names.

As you become more confident, you will probably need to alter the gtkrc or other files that dictate the attributes of the theme, to change font colors, icons sizes, spacing, etc. etc.

Just have fun with it and enjoy the freedom Linux provides us.

Thanks for liking my theme

Are you using the default firefox theme? If you have chosen a new theme for firefox and now you can’t see the toolbar or menu fonts at all.

Well what has happened is the system font color is the same color as your firefox theme color ( let’s say your font is black and the toolbar is also black)

To correct this you will need to create the userChrome.css file

Open Places>Home Folder

In the toolbar click view and then show hidden files

open .mozilla>firefox>(the default folder)>chrome

right-click userChrome-example.css and select open with “text editor”

add this code to the bottom of the page

menubar, menubutton, menu, menuitem, menupopup, popup >
* {
color: white !important;
}

Save this file as userChrome.css in the chrome folder

The next time you open Firefox your font will be white - Jan 17 2008
