Description:

I always liked color-schemes which differ from the usual white & blue. Especially black (dark) and Green (not Matrix-Green) are among my favourites.
They become problematic if you use them for gtk-programs as well, because their controls are kept in black,too - rendering them invisible.
Thus I made up my own color-scheme in dark greys and a nice green for hovering. I used a Suse-Colorscheme released here at kde-look.org earlier as a basis.

Version 1.1:
After learning that there are indeed cases where the white foreground-text is unreadable due to white backgrounds in form-fields, I repacked the colorscheme. It now includes two sets:

- the original BWG-Beauty
- a modified version with silver-grey foreground-text colour (thanks goes to tux86 for pointing that out!)

I was using the NuoveXT-Iconset. But I modded it as I didn't like the icons for Firefox, Thunderbird and others -> mainly all those icons with a strange white highlight colour. The cute little Krusader-Icon for example came from a Krusader-Ivon-Contest here on kde-look.org! ;)

I suggest to set the foreground-textcolor to grey because white may cause problems with textfields in the internet. i had this problem with the login-form of my weblog. the white text was not visible on the white background.

Hi!
I got it from http://sxc.hu/. It's by far the best stock-images site I've seen so far.
The image can be found at http://sxc.hu/browse.phtml?f=view&id=80248
I would re-upload it for kde-look.org if it was completely free for all use (many pics are!), but this one here is not completely free. Secondly you would have to register to download the high-res-image. I'm not sure how happy stox-exchange would be if I re-uploaded their contents elsewhere. So you really have to go through the whole procedure of registering. Sorry.
Greets,
Tobias
