Please don't think of this as a plea for sympathy.

What I'm looking for is solid constructive criticism if you think the theme is bad. - Jul 20 2009

I notice that the theme is being voted bad.

Can anyone help explain to me what parts of it you don't like?

Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give me. - Jul 19 2009

I don't believe it is possible for it to be transparent. If it is possible, I don't know how to do it.

Hopefully someone with more experience will correct me if I am wrong. - May 07 2009

They are metacity themes rather than emerald themes. They are included in the download along with the gtk themes. - Jan 15 2009
Diffuse reflection

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 17 comments

I did try it with black but preferred it with the white.

If you want to try it, go to the gtkrc file and locate the following text:

style "panelbuttons"
{

fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[PRELIGHT] = "#ffffff"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#ffffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
fg[INSENSITIVE] = "#ffffff"

and replace the f's with 0's. You only actually need to do the replacement for the fg[NORMAL] entry but have a play and see what works best for you. - Jan 05 2009

I am a bit puzzled over the highlight problem. I'm using Fx 3 with no issues. which browser are you using?

Thanks for mentioning the panel issue. I always use a 24 pixel panel so I've never noticed a problem before. You have helped me to learn something for future reference, so thanks.

I'll have a look at introducing those new colours you suggested. Hopefully I'll get to update sometime next week. - Dec 31 2008

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 17 comments

Thanks for the feedback.

I have made a change to the panel graphic so that it can handle different size panels, at least up to a size of 34 pixels.

I am not sure what you mean about the text highlighting. I cannot find this problem on my machine. What programme is giving you this text highlight problem? When I know, I will look into fixing it.

By the way, what additional colours would you suggest? - Dec 31 2008

System

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 8 comments

I think you are right.

However, I do not know how to correct this.

I have made fg[NORMAL] white so that the text on the buttons is white. That also changes the text colour on the tabs and means that Fx uses white for the menubar text.

When I become more experienced I will be able to fix this. - Dec 05 2008

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 8 comments

Thanks for the feedback. I've reduced the border on the panel buttons so hopefully that will improve things.

I've also changed the panel to grey, which goes better with the panel buttons. - Dec 04 2008
Playbill - Preview

GTK2 Themes by opeth115 2 comments

I think you could improve this one by increasing the contrast.

The fonts are a little dark for my liking and the highlights could be lightened up too. I cannot see the metacity buttons either.

Apart from that, this is a really promising start. Keep working on this one. - Nov 29 2008

GTK2 Themes by SpikeyB 11 comments

At first I wasn't sure what you meant.

Now I understand the problem. I believe you are using Nautilus to view files.

In icon view, (such as on the desktop) when renaming, the text is white on a white background.

I need to think about the best way to fix it. It's not easy to fix without moving the problem somewhere else.

Thanks for letting me know about it. - Oct 05 2008

OK, glad I explained it better.

Next, the improvements you made to the menubar need doing to the scrollbars.

Don't forget to work on the tabs. - Sep 07 2008

GTK2 Themes by Smlymn707 59 comments

OK, when you hover over a button the text looks like this Menu

Not literally but because the button has a black line it makes the button text look like it has a line through it.

Hope that makes sense to you. - Sep 07 2008

GTK2 Themes by Smlymn707 59 comments

I think you need to change the inactive tab text colour to white.

Also, you need to improve your toolbar buttons (active and prelight). They look like the text is struck out.

Just my opinion. - Sep 07 2008

GTK2 Themes by Smlymn707 59 comments

I quite like the panel. It looks 3 dimensional and shiny.

However, the menubar and toolbar don't quite look right. I don't know if it's to do with lack of gradients but they just look like they are made from 2 lines that are different colours.

I think you will improve the look if you address this issue. - Sep 07 2008
