Thanks! Glad you like it!

well, as far as I remember I have never
given any instructions on the artwiz fonts :)

I just tell everyone who asks to follow the
readme in the package (that is what I did)

You can try looking in the package manager
if you find the artwiz fonts there, but if
not, then the only way is to try to install
from the package :)

hope this helps

Oh my god!

I never thought I'd see a panel like that!

I've been trying to do a good panel for like
a year now, then this shows up and I
just feel stuped :D

please continue your work man!

It amazes me :D

voted 7 / 5 stars ;D (good)

yeah, f**k it, the panel stays light :)

I'm not ready to spend 27 hours a day trying
to fix stuped bugs with openoffice when
having a dark panel :)

I just made it a little different :)

Thank you!

the fonts are not a part of theme, they are
the artwiz fonts (the one I use is snap),
get them here:

The panel is already dark :D

just haven't updated yet... I personally
think that a dark panel is better (to make
more clear that it is a panel and not
just any window), and I have always had my
panel dark so it doesn't feel right to have
a light one :)

wallpaper... well atm I think it's this
one:

couple of days :)

Not sure what grinded metallic look you
are referring to... I have heard it looks
more metallic now!?

well, anyway, sorry if you liked the previous
look more, anyway, this is the last time
I'm doing a preview just because it's
a preview and far from final version so
many things is still about to change :)

I'll think I'm gonna lay low after releasing
this... ... you know ,summer and all :D

The font is artwiz-snap.... get the
artwiz fonts here:

http://artwizaleczapka.sourceforge.net/

the compiz stuff:

in ccsm - general options - opacity

(name=gnome-panel | type=Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu)

and transparency = 80

in ccsm - blur - alpha blur windows

(name=gnome-panel | name=usp | type=Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu)

blur = gaussian
alpha blur = true (checked)

About conky I have no idea why it does that,
I spended several hours testing it on
my box to get it right so you probably
need completely different settings on yours :)

hope this helps!

However I'm not sure what you mean by streamlined?

Yeah, I'm a sucker for the futuristic
tech look, yet I have not managed to
make my box exactly the way I want (that's
probably why I keep making these themes,
but hopefully I will someday!)

Somebody actually mentioned this looked
tech-like so I guess I'm heading in the
right direction!

Thanks!

Actually, as the title states , this is a
preview... so I think the first version
will have a dark panel with light text...

Maybe already in next preview the panel
will be dark :)

thoughts are good!

Yeah it's close to impossible to make a dark
theme that doesn't break anything...
That's probably why I have given up wasting
hours and hours on fixing bugs in them
and I have moved to light themes instead.

If I have some time over I will take a look
at it but I'm not making any promises.

To get the glow use emerald and the emerald theme
(download link below the normal download link)

I want to thank you all for having so much interest
towards my work!

Thank you all for having nice things to say about
my work and having suggestions, criticism and ofc
all who pressed the good/bad button!

I will try to have some new screenshots up in the next couple of days or so....
(I'm not all happy with the theme yet, just cannot
get it to look right)

I have very little time to work on it now when summer is
coming and I'm outta work for the summer so most the

Hi Alex!

Thanks for reporting, I don't know how I could miss that!

The second bug I don't think is a bug with the theme
but with the gnome-panel.

The two others I will try to fix!

Thank you all again who have criticised,
had suggestions and all the good feedback!

Glad to hear what you don't like so I
will
have a chance to fix it, however some of
the things
mentioned I don't think I will change since
some of those where actually the things
I like myself :)

About releasing all of this, like backround
,icons and so on isn't gonna happen since
I have not made them myself and I would
absolutely hate to step on any toes!

In the theme I have made everything from
scratch myself, this is not a port of
any kind.

Thanks again to all of you who commented
and gave feeback or voted , good or bad
that it was!

I really like the color and the shapes in

I would download right away if it wasn't
for the text you have in it, (in my opinion
text does not belong in wallpapers, well
maybe one word or so but....)

anyway, there is some very good art here!

A really huge thank you to all of you who
have commented,supported,given feedback
and voted (good or bad that it was)!

I'm really happy to see interest in my work!

To answer a few questions:

The theme is not black and white, it actually
is blue (well , very low on saturation because
I don't like a colorful system, maybe I'm getting
old, I don't know).

my conkyrc is available here(well, VERY
outdated but it's very easy to edit it
to ones desires)
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Conky+%5BTheRob%5D?content=74972

It is not supposed to download yet...
That's what previews are all about,
pissing those in the eyes who would actually
like to use the product ;D

Anyway, I don't think this will be ready
anytime soon but if there is enough
request I might upload a very very very
untested and ugly version :)

Thanks again!!!

Hello!

on the web explaining exactly that so
I don't see any reason why I should have
one too, one good tutorial should be enough
no?

Well thanks for the compliments!

The big blackwhite version is supposed to
make toolbar icons bigger, not the menu
ones (if I have understood it correctly)
and as far as I know this theme has no problem
with that :)

However to make the menu icons bigger
(this will f**k up the thing that the icons
appear on a lighter space of the menues)
edit the gtkrc file and delete the line
that says
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16"

or change 16 to 22 or whatever you want!

hope this helps!

Well thank you!

Yeah I know my themes are never customizable,
as when I create them, they are for
personal use, but after I uploaded my
first one here I was highly suprised to
how people reacted to my theme so I thought
I'd upload my future themes here and
I am still suprised the way people react
when I upload a new theme!
Enough of my blabbering...

Anyway about the votin, that you just sayd
is exactly why we need a new improved voting
system!

I always leave comments on artwork I like
because I want the artist to his work
is appreciated and that it's great!

That is why I don't like the good / bad
too much since when I like something,
I vote good, and when I think something
really revolutionary shows up, I vote
good, there should be more options!

Anyway, that was completely of topic!

Using latest firefox I know you don't
need any fix at all since that was a
bug in firefox 2.

As for thunderbird, It should work with
the latest, I have never used it myself
but if you can establish that there is
a bug I might have to look into it!

GTK2 Themes by TheRob 224 comments

Looks cool!

Well are you sure you have the tabs named
correctly?

Then one other thing you should check in
the code/gtkrc is how much space on the
borders is allocated and not stretched...
Look at the panel button and you see
what I mean. just check in the pixmaps
how much should be allocated (more rounding
will require more borders).

the code for borders looks like this:

example

border = { 4 , 4 , 6 , 6}

that means that 4 pixels is allocated
on the left, 4 on the right , 6 on top
and 6 on bottom.....

btw, The panel settings are in the
panel.rc file... look there for changing
panel settings.

Hope this helps!

Wtf is this?

Why are you jumping at auntaunt?

he is like one of the coolest users here
at gnome-look, he is just trying to help,
since that is something that's been going
on here at gnome-look lately , I think
throlling is what they call it... I don't
know, I don't really care if my themes get
voted down, but there are some really great
stuff here at gnome-look that gets voted
down for a very very very very false reason,
and if I'd had the addresses of those people
voting that artwork down , I would have
to pay a little visit with my shotgun...

*please do not take the above 100% serious*

now don't get me wrong... I think it's
good certain artwork gets voted down,
but when artwork that is really really
good (this theme is not one of those)
it really really pisses me of see some
damn fools voting that bad and scaring
the artist away!

Nof said.

Yeah , that is a feature :D

just delete in gtkrc and panel.rc any
code that says hline or vline....

example:

image
{
function = VLINE
recolorable = TRUE
file = "/lines/line-v-black.png"
border = {0,0,0,0}
stretch = TRUE
}

image
{
function = HLINE
recolorable = TRUE
file = "/lines/line-h-black.png"
border = {0,0,0,0}
stretch = TRUE
}

be sure to remove both the { and the } so
that the code still works....

hope this helps!
