Sory for last comment. I wrote something what we can call a letter to you and then gnome-look told me to login once again and ff forgot everything and I have to write it again.

So. I had two requests for you. I dont wana write it all so Im putting two pics:

1) Rows in menus should be smaller. 23 pix is perfect. Now rows in most themes are too big. Nice png icons look beatifull but are a bit user unfriendly when gnome is used on notebook

2) Icons and half of the rows should be darkened. Its much clearer now and searching of elements in big lists is easier.

hi, I read your comment and I've change the height of the menu items, now are more compact, but the dark background for the icons in the menues is complicated because the image is expanded, so some menues look ugly

Firstly I just want to comment on what a great job you have done porting the mockup.
It looks fantastic!

I am however getting a few issues, the main one being what I am seeing looks very different to your screenshots -

As you can see, it's odd. The top and bottom pannels change color, firefox on dark setting becomes ugly (too dark) and well...you can see for youself.

I am running a freshly installed version of Ubuntu Hardy Heron so not sure why it's so different.
I don't know if you can fix it?

Also, you have a spelling mistake for the light version when you pick which version to use. Currently it says "ligth".


Thanks again for all your hard work on this, I can't wait to get it all working nicely! :D

I should also add:
A lot of the issues are with text colour, and the colour on rollover too.

Also, when not on dark (my favourite) the borders look odd in the menu on unselected windows (big light line).

Look at the pictures and you will see what I mean.

looks like you're only using the emerald theme. if not, to install, just drag the .tar.gz file into the theme manager (right click desktop, change desktop backgrounc, themes tab)

Hi, thanks for getting back to me.

That is exactly what I did, downloaded the theme (not emerald) and dragged it into the theme manager.

I then select clearlooks, and then customise and then click one of the Willibex versions.

AM I missing something here? Perhaps something from synaptic package manager needs installing?

Cheers...

This theme is incredible, but I have to point out a few things. First, text boxes and buttons in web pages don't mesh. I know this comes by default with dark themes, but could the edges be transparent so that they mesh a tad better? Secondly, the panel's quick user switch menu is stuck purely black. Lastly, the lightest version's font for the menus at the top need a kick in the contrasty direction.

You should really look at making a separate version based off of this that is separate from the WillWill mockup in order to be more usable. I'd try, but I can't find any good resource for learning Gnome theming yet.

This is the best attempt at recreating that mockup that I have tried. There are a few issues though, firefox's file edit view toolbar shows up as grey when it should blend. Also banshee's selection highlight ends up not using the orange selection used everywhere else. It uses the window color instead and when mixed with the black text it makes it impossible to make anything out.
Other than the few kinks I look forward to using this theme.

Hi there! This is a great theme, only one issue. The panel seems to be 31 pixel high and it can't be thinner, so i suggest making it 24 pixels high to suit ubuntu classic style!

hi everyone, i appreciate all your comments and sugestions, i just to say that my original idea was make a theme that recreate the mockup of Will Williams, and in this approach i think this theme it's very close... that's why very of your sugestion are not in the theme, sorry, most of your comments are good but if i implement them in the theme the result it's totally diferent of the will mockup, but i think your ideas are great to do a completly new theme whit them... so, i hope you understand me and, if i have time, make a new theme based on your comments.

Thanks.

still combination of colors are not what i want see .. i know is hard to mix them well .. but keep trying

here is link how looks my desk http://www.linux.pl/images/foto/4159120080718190708.jpg i would like to see mix of gray from screen with ur orange ... would be nice

btw try to do smt with beryl style ... because is useless .. is completely transparent and on white background looks like gray.
I think tittle bars should be more opaque and color of fonts different.

....this is an almost perfect theme and I don't think that it is too dark

I hope and pray these kind of themes will not end up in Ibex. It's just too dark to use for generic computing - and those of us who don't see very well in the first place won't be too keen on it either.

So kids.. Just say no.
