Thanks, I know what you mean.

I think more people like it too, they just don't want to admit it. - Aug 27 2008

Both of you, thank you for your comments.

Is this theme really that unusable?

You can see the words so you know where to click even though there are no buttons. Admittedly, the visible target area is reduced so perhaps the lack of buttons is not good.

As for the scrollbars, if you have a scrollable mouse wheel, you can still scroll.

Why do you need to move your mouse all the way over to the right of the screen and then try to home in on an arrow or bar?

This theme is good because it forces you to stop wasting mouse movement.

Please realise that these are meant to be discussion questions not a rebuttal of your opinions.

p.s. if you use a touchpad, I agree, it is unusable. Unless of course you have one of those funky scroll areas on it. - Aug 26 2008

Thanks for the link, nice button. I'm guessing the button would need to be made a bit darker for this theme. What do you reckon? - Aug 24 2008

I left them out deliberately. I thought everything would look smoother without lines to break things up. - Aug 20 2008

I just used gThumb to desaturate, then changed the colour balance to get the shade I wanted. - Jun 22 2008

I hadn't thought about it like that. I just need to lighten it up a bit, add a bit of yellow and we've got Norton and Harvard graphics. - Jun 22 2008

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Most of my stuff gets marked down, so I'm used to it.

Anyway who cares, I'm having fun. - Jun 19 2008

Thanks for your feedback

I've changed the scrollbars and used a slightly modified Tigris metacity theme.

Hopefully that will improve things.

At the moment I can't seem to update the content, apart from one of my screenshots.

I'll try again later. - Jun 15 2008

How strange, this theme is voted down yet the exact same theme posted earlier is voted up.

Obviously voting is not as rational as I had thought, doh. - Jun 10 2008

Re-downloaded as you suggested and it works for me now.

Not just a great theme but great support as well.

Thank you very much. - Apr 30 2008

I like this as it's a nice rounded version of the "no extra crap" theme.

Unfortunately the theme doesn't work for me. When I select it, the window borders stay on the previously selected theme. Any ideas why? - Apr 27 2008

What a great theme. I definitely have the right mindset for this.

If I'd have known how to create this myself I would have do so a long time ago.

Thanks a lot juustomuna. - Apr 25 2008

Hi Anywhere

No doubt you will find a fix before me.

I have only just started out on this theming addiction which is why I am using other peoples themes. I feel like a bit of a fraud but I reckon the best way to learn is to get stuck in and build up gradually.

If I do work anything out during my stumbling around, I'll let you know. - Mar 29 2008

I know what you mean. Whenever I switch back to Human or Human BC I always feel sort of cleansed and uncluttered.

It never lasts long though, I always get drawn back to the shiny objects. - Mar 29 2008

I think that this theme is fantastic.

I wanted to use the Ubuntu Human theme but it just wasn't good enough. It didn't look fresh and modern enough to me.

These window borders have completely transformed the overall look of the Human theme.

Well done themer, thank you. - Aug 22 2007
