first of all I would like to thank you for this theme! it's the best I used ever!

now I miss it when upgrading to ubuntu 11.10 :( I wonder if there is a chance you will change it to work with unity and gnome shell? Please!!!...

The funny thing is that I found it in Gnome.look and I'm linking to that them without knowing that you are here! :D

Hehe :) thx!

Well, I'm sorry to say there will be no port,
well, I will not do any port. I haven't used
Gnome since -08 so I have no interest in making
any kind of theme for it.

It is gpl so if anybody feels like doing a port
go right ahead.

Ah, you see, for that to work you have to
have the extracted folder on the desktop,
it seems you skipped a phase... ...well
whatever, it's not rocket science and
I'm glad you got it to work :)

Hi, at first thx for this great theme and i hope you stil develope this. I have a litle problem with the fonts on gray or black background. If try Opera browser 10.61 ore OpenOffice 3.2 you will see if you turn the menus in both programms.

Thx for your work i hope you can fix it :)

Glad you like the theme, I'm sorry to inform you that
I haven't actively developed this since like....2008 :(
I know that programs that are not native gtk programs
(firefox, openoffice, opera, vlc...........) will
generate problems and not obey the gtkrc as they
have their own skinning engine (firefox uses css).

As the apps do not obey gtkrc they require special
workarounds (or light background everywhere as that
is the base anyway) which I don't know how to do
sry.

I hope you understand a little better why it doesn't
work now :(

This is so kickass! Unfortunately I am not prompted to download a wallpaper :( and also, how do I make my menu semi-transparent like in the screenshot?!

:iconth3r0b:
Th3R0b Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010
The wallpaper is included in the tarball and should apply if you followed my
instructions, when selecting to "apply wallpaper in gnome settings" :)

If not, you can always extract the tarball and there find the wallpaper
manually :)

The transparency if all fake and made with compiz.

Glad you like!

Yeah I know, deviantart doublecompesses the
tar files, so you have to extract twice,
then copy the folder to either

/usr/share/themes (system wide)

or

~/.themes (just for your user)

hope this helps!

Your themes are high quality efforts. I'm using xfce v. 4.4.2 and find your themes very preferable to others.

One problem: The scroll bars somehow are not operational on any of the three themes I downloaded from Deviant. If there are any ideas or modifications such as placing the themes in a different location which you could recommend I'd appreciate it.

Thanks...

well, the themes should be installed
in /usr/share/themes for global use.

If you could post a ss I could maybe
tell whats wrong :)

Wow, this is a great theme. Very unique, and finally not trying copy any other OS. I've installed it, but I don't get transparent menus. Why not? :(

Just wondering, what tool is that on the right side of your screen? I had something similar on my mac called Geektool, but haven't found anything quite as similar as what you have there for linux.

Great work on your themes, I enjoy them all.

Hey, man, thank you very much!

But it lacks something...

Where do I find it?
Thanks again, this theme is the best!

Swankness. I just set my girlfriend's lappie up with Ubuntu and she LOVES this theme (then again, so do I...that's why I put it on there...and, y'know, my computers as well).

Keep up the good work, sir.
