Yeah I used compiz for the transparent effects....
It was a long time ago since I used compiz so
I don't remember how I did it...

Now I use kde-svn (4.2 branch) and I'm so happy
it I have no thoughts of using anything else :)

it shouldn't be hard to find a great tutorial on
how to fix the transparency with compiz

//Robert - Dec 08 2008
hmmm, looks like they have changed the
pixmap engine so my code don't work...

If that is the case all my themes should
have the same problem.

well, it doesn't really bother me anymore
since I don't use gnome anymore :)

//Robert - Jul 07 2008
hmmm, if your distro is using aptitude
try this:

sudo aptitude search pixbuf


sudo aptitude search pixmap

it's usually called either pixmap or
I know in ubuntu it's called pixbuf :)

hope this helps!

//Robert - Jul 07 2008
Thanks man!

The color is very easy to change trough
the theme manager :)

//Robert - Jul 01 2008
hmmm, you have pixmaps engine installed?

maybe they have changed the gnome/gtk
so that pixmaps themes don't work anymore....
I have no idea since I'm on kde these days :)

If you have more info please tell me
and I will put it in description :)

//Robert - Jul 01 2008

hmm, sounds like you are missing the pixmaps
engine... but I'm not sure... maybe a screenshot?

//Robert - Jul 01 2008
I'm really sorry man!

I don't even use gnome anymore so it's
impossible for me to fix anything :(

if someone has a fix however or wants
to further develop this theme they are
very free to do so!

If someone want to take over this theme to further

Thanks man!

well, the firefox fix is for firefox 2
,ff3 shouldn't have a problem :)

as for evolution... the only fix I can
think of right now (as I have moved to
kde and no longer use gnome at all)
is to start the app with another theme :)

I'm sorry I can't fix it for you.

//Robert - Jul 10 2008
Thanks and glad you like my work!

I'm on kde nowadays myself so I don't
think I will be developing any more
themes/styles for gnome/gtk :)
I would port it to xfwm if I knew how
tho :)

if you use compiz you can use the emerald

the fix is for firefox 2 and has nothing
to do with ff3... I maybe should
edit the description.

Thanks for your interest man! sorry
I can't help you more :)

//Robert - Jul 04 2008
Well thanks again man!

well, yeah, there are a lot of bugs in
slickness (and every dark theme here on
gnome-look) because gnome was build
with dark text on light background
in mind,
so if you make something dark with
light text,,, it's doomed, I have spent
many many hours trying to solve bugs
like these, the apps that usually have
them are the ones that are not actually
gnome (gtk) apps but multiplatform
apps, that work on many systems, eg:
firefox (I hate it and never use it myself)
openoffice,vlc,gimp.... you get the

Some of these bugs I was able to fix
from within the gtkrc (gtk+ configuration code) , it's how you
write themes for gnome (and other gtk
based systems)
and then there was the firefox problem...
or is... but now it's a different one
with ff3 :)

so the only solution I saw at the end
of the day was to make an all light
theme, can be found here:
and so far, no one has had a deadly
font bug as far as I know :)

My best regards to every themer who
is determined to make a fully functional
dark theme!

//Robert - Jul 03 2008
Thanks for your kind words man!

I'm sorry I can't do nothing bout the
ff issue :(

as for porting themes to kde... sure it
can be done... it's a major pain in the
ass but it's possible :D

Atm I don't see any reason for doing
so tho, because the themes that are available
for kde are like 100 times better that
my themes ever dreamed of being :)

However if someone wants to keep developing
my themes they are very very free to do

Thanks again!

This theme features so much effects and stuff

I know I should keep my mouth shut and obey for
you doing this for us, but stuped as I am I actually
have a question, would it be possible / doable
to make the toolbar buttons behave the way
they do in the domino theme for kde3?

You know they like integrate to each other and
gives a very slick and professional in my opinion.

That is the one thing I'm missing in appearance since
kde3, don't cut my head off now, I'm just asking :)

amazing work so far!

I don't know why I'm on kde 3.5 now,
maybe because I'm too lazy :D

great icons man!! I love black, and lots

minor detail tho... it's for kde4 :D

how much time would it take to make

in my op kde is like 100 times more
customizable than gnome.... fgs in
gnome one can't even select what
buttons are shown in the toolbar of
a file manager thru a gui :D

I had to alter the source code of the
damn thing :D

well whatever... I'm happy it works
out for you :D

yeah nobody gets me away from :D !

There is no gtk theme used since the
shot is from kde :)

well... I started missing too much
features in gnome and at the time
a friend of mine was telling me about
kde and kde 4 was just out so I figured
now is the time to give kde a shot,
and boy did I like it :D I regret not
doing it earlier... I tried kde very quickly
on a knoppix live cd a few years back
but at the time I didn't like it, that
is why I have been under the false
belief that gnome is better for me :)

And I wasn't gonna install this either,
I don't know what turned my head...

...Now when I have it installed I do not
want to change to another theme :D

It's by far the most usable theme on this

You sure seem to know what you are doing,
I liked the progressbar effect :D

I really hope we are going to see more

Maybe more options for like some rounded

Hi daX!! Very glad to hear other people
are sharing my interests in getting this
over to kde4... If I had any skills in
C++/Qt4 I would help you!

I'm sure this is one of the harder styles
to port since it has features none of the
other styles for kde 3 has...

That is why I am so interested in this personally.

I personally have no programming skills but
I looked at some of the code for domino
and my jaw simply dropped,, I knew there was
no way I could ever understand any of it :D

All the best!


PS. I also thought I'd wait for like 4.5 or
something like that... after trying 4.1 beta... I was hooked! ;D - Aug 06 2008
Well first, Amazing theme/style you
have created... the only one I ever used
on kde 3!

I really liked everything with it, how
the toolbar buttons blend together and
how the tabs work!

So now that people are starting to use kde4,
I'm wondering, are we gonna see domino
style for kde4?

I really can't put it into words how much I have enjoyed
using kde with the domino style!

really man! 10/10 stars!

kde 4 is still in a stage of development
so it might not be very user friendly
yet, but it seems to be heading in the
right direction, atm I use kde 3.5.9
as it has like A LOT of features I missed
in gnome :)

I warmly recommend kde to anyone that wants
a more advanced desktop than gnome.
