I did all the steps described in the "Panel how to" but the panel doesn't fit in the screen.
It looks so bad and has two transparent horizontal strips that I can't dissapear.
What I can do?

Thanks.

Not that I know a whole lot about themes but I'm guessing you are on a widescreen monitor.

The two images for the panel are only 1280 pixels wide and might need to be made longer. Open them up in gimp or any other editor and increase the X part of canvas size to match your resolution. Don't let the Y part scale automatically.


Gorgeous theme like I've said before. Rated good.

I like it, but which engine do you use for it? For me it's missing, but don't describe, which.

Very beautiful. I love it. But... When you open the menus, the menu items are very close to each other. pardon my newbiness, I don't know the exact term for it. I think its the metacity engine, or whatever... But I hope you understand me. So, I guess it will look much better with wider mene items.

And you should make a matching GDM theme.

Thanks

I do not know what is it. You are using transmission, and for some reason does not shows progress bar, i guess you have to use just a text to see how much is downloaded, until i find out what is it.

If you look at the progress bar in my screenshot, I can't see how much that has been downloaded.

It is Ubuntu Sytem Panel(USP) and has applets, that is one of the applets that lets you add user picture and some other info.

Your theme is making a huge impact in my university!

Everyone is asking what I'm using...

Is there a way for you to send me your wallpaper for screenshot#1, the London one?

Thanks again.

I'd like to request a border of some sort (fairly discrete colour) for inactive windows/tabs similar to the nice, bright orange one that you have for the active window. Is this a quick fix that anyone can put in?

I'm talking about inactive windows in the window list (panels) and inactive tabs in the default gnome terminal.

This apart, I *love* the theme

I really love this theme! :) I have a little problem with the gnome-panel though. The "window list" and "tray" items are both surrounded by a slightly lighter brown colour than the rest of the panel. I use the icon-pack you suggested in an earlier comment here. I'm hoping for a solution.

Keep up the great work! :)

To fix your problem open gtkrc in chocolate directory and change Line 9 where it says include panel.rc to stylepanel.rc and reload panel with killall gnome-panel.

Just want to clarify that it's the below panel which should use background i16 and height 33. Top is 19 and i15 (I think it was the other way around in the readme).

But now an issue I have.. Panel applets has a much more light brown background than the panels background.. I'm also not getting those beautiful colours which is shown in your screenshot in the window menu..

I just installed pixmap and logged out-in, but the theme hasn't changed.

Otherwise, greeat work!

Yes you are right bottom panel 33 pixels hight and background image i16.png, top panel 19 pixels and background image i15.png. Thanks for point that out, I will change it in howto for next update. There is a solution for the panel, that is not problem, and if you can send me picture of what do you mean you do not getting colors in the window menu, then i culd help you further.
