I'm sorry, but I have never seen that error.

Did you install using "Install" from the Appearances Settings dialog? - Nov 18 2010

Just drag and drop the tar.gz package onto the "Appearance" window. Don't extract anything.

OR

In the "Appearance" dialog click "Install" and select the tar.gz package. - Dec 25 2009

The titlebar and scrollbars were taken from Slickness with theRob's permission. Everything else is custom made. - Dec 12 2008

Ah. The screens are a bit out of date. The text colours have been changed to make then more visible. I have not had time to update the screenshots. - Sep 30 2008

Which parts are you referring to? Could you post a screenshot? I have been using this theme for months, and I can read everything (except for firefox, there is a bug here which doesn't render the text in the correct colour. I use a different theme for firefox only). - Sep 15 2008

I'm really not familiar with making emerald themes. If someones' ready to make one, I'll be happy to include it.

I use this with compiz fusion and the gtk-window-decorator. It works pretty much the same as emerald. - Sep 12 2008

I have noticed the panel issue as well. I am working on it.

As for the checkboxes, there is only 1 option of an image to use during hover. So I could either use a blank box, or a checked one. Either way, it looks kind of weird from a usability perspective. This is a limitation of the pixbuf theme engine. I'm not yet sure what to do about it. Any suggestions would be helpful. - Aug 10 2008

Made some changes. It that better? Otherwise it may be a specific widget that has this problem. - Aug 07 2008

You're referring to the listboxes and the like? If yes, then I was planning on doing that. Just haven't got around to it yet. :-) - Aug 04 2008

BTW. you can disable the background of the panel from "Panel/gtkrc" by commenting out the 2 marked lines. - Aug 03 2008

You can also disable themeing of the panel by commenting the line "include Panel/gtkrc" at the end of the "gtk-2.0/gtkrc" file in the theme folder. - Aug 03 2008

You can switch off the panel background by commenting the marked lines in "Panel/gtkrc" in the theme's folder. - Aug 03 2008

You are welcome to use it wherever you like.
I know of only 1 real bug at the moment, the firefox 3 address bar drop down isn't correct and the "Add Bookmark" popup text is not visible. I am working on those. If you're working on a distro, then perhaps these bugs would be important. - Jul 25 2008

Much appreciated. I personally don't mind negative comments as long as there's something constructive in them.

All opinion is valid, especially when it comes to something like art. - May 26 2008

Sorry. the folder is /path/to/XNTricity/gtk-2.0/Panel and not gtkrc-2.0/Panel - May 05 2008

GTK2 Themes by savyasachi 41 comments

Open the file gtkrc-2.0/Panel/gtkrc and comment the lines marked. One says bg_pixmap[NORMAL]... and the other has
widget "*Panel*" style "theme-panel-item-editor"

(Add a # at the start of the lines)

Then right-click on the panel, select properties and change the background picture. There are some transparent backgrounds in the gtkrc-2.0/Panel folder in the theme folder.

The only things slickness and this theme have in common are menubar/titlebar and the scrollbars.

It is pretty different, perhaps install the two and compare. I don't really know how to describe it.

Anyways, Slickness cooler :-) - May 04 2008

Yes, OO has some issues with adhering to menubar/menuitem colours. The behaviour also varies between 2.3 and 2.4. There seems to be a workaround though. Try
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Openoffice+fix+for+slickness+black+theme?content=77415

I'll be integrating this when I get some time.

Compiz does seem to behave strangely with window decorations that don't have a side border, but there are workarounds; You can resize by dragging the window with the middle mouse button and ALT depressed (from anywhere in the window).

Also, I think there is a slickness for emerald somewhere on gnome-look. I believe emerald works fine. Try a search for "slickness".

Hope this helps!
