note
As of version 1.0 this is not a murrine-theme anymore! I got tired of the murrine-look so I switched completely to pixmaps.
I hope you like the look of the new buttons, scrollbars etc! :)

I've included media-control-icons for gtk that matches the Neutronium DeepBlack Style.
To use them just copy the content of the 'icons' folder to the theme dir of your current icon-theme (~/.icons/*theme*).

Hi, good that you got it working!

The right-click-menu is from xfce4 (the wm I use). I'm not sure but I think you can bind the menu to the right mouse button in gnome as well. In xfce the option is under:
Settings > Desktop Settings > Behavior

My Terminal
client: Mrxvt http://pastebin.archlinux.org/12847
Shell: zsh http://aperiodic.net/phil/prompt/

Wallpaper: http://xs.to/xs.php?h=xs318&d=07335&f=field.png

the theme is really brilliant
i'd use it right away tho...
there are 2 things that are really annoying

1. black on black situations in many programs:

2. the selection color in menu / text is too dark so it's for example not really visible when u select text

and well i would't call it 3. since it's not that critical as the first two
it's the scrollbar, the scroller is practically not visible until mouseover

Thx for the feedback!

I don't know how you can change the fg color of the gaim contact-list. I'm not even sure if you can alter it in a gtk-theme at all (the theme itself contains no black foreground colors and other dark themes have the same problem).
If you know how to change it, please let me know!

There's nothing wrong here... select a template and you will see the white letters ;)

Well, that's probably a matter of taste. The scrollbars and highlighting colors are perfectly visible on my TFT-Monitor.
In the next few days I'll upload a version of this theme with brighter scrollbars/highlighting.

At first, I wasn't sure I agreed with your choice of moving away from the Murrine engine. But yeah, very impressed; great work!

The visibility in the theme is much better now, and I noticed some speed improvements. Keep up the good work!

Btw, which network applet are you using the bottom panel (which indicates the upload and download speed?).

I'm fairly new to Linux, and am having some problems installing themes, I've tried multiple themes from this site, and always get the same error, I love the look of this theme and would love to use it :)

It always says that it's not a tar.gz or tar archive when I select it from the "Install" list or drag it, any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can install gtk-themes manually by extracting the theme-archive to '~/.themes'.

To do that create a folder called '.themes' (with the dot in front) in the home directory of your user. Then open the theme.tar.gz with an Archive Manager (file-roller, squeeze etc.) and extract it to the '.theme' dir. Now open the gnome-theme-manager (if you use gnome) and click on 'customize'. The theme will now be available in the 'controls' tab.

Hey, thanks for the quick responses. I'm using Ubuntu 7.04, and Gnome 2.18.1, the second poster's method worked for me, I'll keep the multiple styles condition in mind >.>

Can you be more specific? What OS do u use? and what version of Gnome? If dragging the zipped file to the Theme Manager doesn't work, then extract the contents from the zip file and move the folder to your local them folder, which shud be /home/[your user name]/.themes

Note: Some themes uploaded here will have multiple styles! So you have to install them individually!

Hope that helps!

Nice gradients and color (well, lack of). This goes in the pantheon with lyrae's work. This is sooo black!

I'm glad you got rid of the Murrina look. The gradients in the engine are quite redundant throughout the theme, in the many Murrina themes I have used this is true. This looks fresh, new and the pixmaps add a whole new edge to it.

.....can you post the Archlinux button? It looks great. Also, is that a system activity indicator applet that you have next to the Archlinux menu? Where did you get that? And I downloaded the terminal in your screenshot but can't find a way to customize it. How'd you get it to look like that?

I'm very impressed by this theme, and you have a great desktop too!

Thx, next to the menu (icon postet above) is just the taskbar. What you think could be a system activity indicator applet is just the default XTerm icon of xfce. ;)

You can customize Mrxvt (the terminal app) via a config file in your home dir (.mrxvtrc). Here's is my config for example: ftp://sen.homelinux.org/config/mrxvtrc
