Hi,

I love this theme, but I found an ugly foreground color and color text in the menu bar (#DDE4FF). This color is placed when the elements are disabled.

It looks much better with this color:

--- menubar.rc.orig 2006-01-14 04:00:21.000000000 -0400
+++ menubar.rc 2009-12-28 15:46:00.478434367 -0400
@@ -7,8 +7,8 @@
text[NORMAL] = "#000000"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#404040"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#404040"
- fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#DDE4FF"
- text[PRELIGHT] = "#DDE4FF"
+ fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#AAAAAA"
+ text[PRELIGHT] = "#C4C4C4"

xthickness = 1
ythickness = 2
[/code]

Thanks, greetings and hugs!

Why doesn't your panel background graphic go all the way across? Why doesn't it cover "Applications, Places, System"?

The theme called "Black" does do this and it's supposed to be based off your theme. I think it looks better like this. Any plans for this or could you explain how it could be done? Thanks!

it's because black uses for the menubar the same pixmap of the panel. I think that my version is better, but the modification is simple: just overwrite menubar pixmap with the panel pixmap!

Nice, slick and clean.
The hovereffect for the buttons is decent and I like it.

The theme seems to go pretty well with tango, nice work.

I like this theme A LOT however, I do not at all like the dark-colour of the menu on the panel. The menu on the panel should be the same colour as the rest of the panel unless it is clicked.

Yes, this one works.

Looks nice but could get annoying due to the delay for showing objects like submenus and such.

And I guess my hardware won't be enough for XGL (unless my ATI-cards supports the composite-extension).

Your theme looks perfect with SnowIsh (PNG).

This is a very good theme! I was just wondering about the X (close Window)-does it look a little "thin" compared to min. and max? Maybe its just my lcd monitor.

Anyway thanks!

This one is definitely in my rotation. I'm using the Gray-Flat with the Clearlooks 2.1 metacity and I've modded the gtkrc bg[SELECTED] = "#50749E". It rawks!

Also, was 1.4 version a slightly different color than just gray? Something looks different. I might go back to 1.4 just to make sure what it was...both look great though!

yes they are much different each other... i've totally rebuild all pixmaps.
DO you prefer the old ones?

Report

Nah, 1.5 is great. The only thing I'd change though is the panel. I'd prefer a solid background/color or whatever instead of the dual color you have going. I don't like the way the launcher (main menu) has a solid background and then the panel has the png background with the two colors.

That's just me though...

Make the base and bg, active and selected, diff.

bg[ACTIVE] = "#E0E0E0"
bg[SELECTED] = "#c6c6c6"

base[ACTIVE] = "#E0E0E0"
base[SELECTED] = "#d5d5d5"

text[ACTIVE] = "#505050"
text[SELECTED] = "#353535"
