Oh, and one more suggestion. It would be nice if you added a separate link to the background.jpg file so that people can use it as wallpaper. (I know people can go and find it themselves after installing the GDM theme, but it's more complicated.) - Aug 20 2009
Thanks. I really like this theme, and especially that you included the icons, pointers and GDM. It makes for a nice package.

One minor thing. There's some problem with the GDM "screenshot" not displaying in the list of GDM themes after installation. My guess is that it has something to do with an incorrect file name in your GdmGreeterTheme.desktop file, but I'm not sure. - Aug 20 2009

Thanks for the good looking theme. I change themes a lot, but when I want a "Mac" look, I use this one.

One thing though, the scroll arrows (vertical and horizontal) in the "insensitive" state revert to the system default theme look and don't look good like the rest of your theme. Any chance you will do an update and modify that? I already did a mod for my own use and would be very happy to send you the code and four pixmap graphics if you would like to use them. I don't want to "release" yet another mod myself and clutter up this place even more or detract from your great work.

Thanks again. - Apr 10 2009

I do like this wallpaper quite a bit. I would really prefer a "no logo" version anyway, and since there is controversy about that logo, how about just releasing it without the logo?

Thanks. - Apr 08 2009

Is the download link broken? Seems to be for me.

Great set, BTW. It's the set I most often use on my systems. I needed to download it again to install it on another machine and came back to get it.

Thanks. - Apr 07 2009

Oops. Sorry that I haven't noticed that I had some new comments here. For some reason I forgot to turn on "subscriptions" for this content, so I didn't know you had written.

I agree with both of your feedback (DanRabbit and fyda). I'm not really good with "artwork", so getting feedback is helpful if I'm going to improve anything. I won't "promise" anything because I don't know if I'm capable of getting it to look good. As I stated above, I'd really like it if someone with real artistic ability would take the concept and rework it into something really nice looking.

Thanks. - May 11 2008
Robert, thanks for the encouragement.

(Hmm, maybe I should try to do this in a scalable format; that might be more useful.) - Jan 28 2008
Thanks for the feedback and the encouragement. I did try to do something with the "cord" idea, but I just don't have the requisite skills to make it look good. But I did change the outlet to greyscale, brightened it, and raised the contrast. I think I actually like it now, so thanks for that idea. Since I'm using it with a "black and white" iconset, that makes a lot of sense. - Jan 28 2008
Not a bad point.
Personally, I really don't like the "outlet" icon at all, and I'm trying to figure out what to do with at least that one. Every time my laptop is plugged in, I don't like it when that icon catches my eye. The rest fit pretty well with the icon set I'm using (at least to my eye).
Oh, I did make a "no battery present" icon a few days later. But for some reason, it doesn't ever show up on my system, even when I take the battery out. If I come up with something better for the "plugged in" icon, maybe I'll update the file here.
Thanks for the feedback. - Jan 24 2008

Good, I'm glad you got it working.
Enjoy. - Apr 06 2008
(That's strange; where did the "reply" link go? I don't have it either. Can threads only extend just this far?)

angel2005, are you sure you are using this NoNameRetro theme? Line 2036 is just "image" (like line 2136). Widget references are quite a bit further down in the file (after 2500). I also did some searching for that text string, and it isn't in the gtkrc file. So all I can come up with at this point is either you aren't actually using NoNameRetro, or the file somehow became very corrupt.

I agree with Rob. Try downloading and installing it again and see if the problem is solved. Please let me know if that doesn't work.

I hope you get it working; I think it's a pretty nice theme. :-) - Apr 04 2008
Rob, thanks for the ideas. I had tried running something in terminal, but I didn't get any error code. So if there really is a problem with the gtkrc, I haven't been able to find it.

After reading your suggestion, I did have a look at that line. But line 2136 is nothing more than "image" (and there was no change between ver. 1.0.1 and 1.0.2), so I can't imagine what would be wrong with that.

How likely is it that angel2005 has somehow got a corrupt gtkrc file? I don't know; I'm just guessing at this point. I'll be happy to try any other ideas anyone might have. - Apr 04 2008
Thanks for the feedback. I'd like to be able to help, but I don't know how to duplicate the problem or what it means yet. Can you give me some idea of how to duplicate that error? - Apr 03 2008
Anywhere, did ver. 0.9.6 fix what you were talking about? I wasn't using the menubar in the panel, so I don't think I ever understood what you were talking about. Hopefully that was it and I got it fixed. Please let me know if I still am not getting it. - Mar 01 2008
Robert, just a follow up on that Gimp issue. You suggested fix worked great. However, after rebuilding the gtkrc file, I went back and changed it back to ffffff (just curiosity) and the problem was still resolved. That suggests to me that there was something wrong somewhere else (with a class or widget_class assignment?). I wish I could tell you what specifically I did to make that happen. Unfortunately, I had already almost completed my work, so I'm not sure. In an case, your solution did work. - Feb 13 2008
Since I did a major rebuild of the gtkrc file, I'd like to hear any feedback on anything I broke in the process. Please let me know if you run into anything I messed up. - Feb 12 2008
Perfect. Yes, that did it. Thanks Robert.

I just spent all of my free time the last day rebuilding the gtkrc file. I thought that would be a good way to learn a thing or two and possibly get rid of some extraneous code. I still have a lot of questions, but I did figure out a few things as well. - Feb 12 2008
I'll have a look later today when I have a free moment. I might have inadvertently created the problem with one of my other changes.
- Feb 10 2008
Thanks for the feedback, Anywhere.

After spending about two hours on that first problem, I had it solved ..., but in the process had introduced another problem I couldn't solve! Then I came back here and noticed that someone who really does know what he is doing (TheRob) was offering his help once again.

So I have implemented his solution, and all seems well with "create launcher" background. I will upload the revision shortly. (Thanks Robert!)

Unfortunately I'm not quite sure what you mean by #2, and I haven't had time to look at #3. Admittedly, I'm probably in way over my head with all of this, but I like to give it a try anyway. - Feb 10 2008
I'm glad you like it. Thanks for the encouragement. - Feb 10 2008
Actually there was something wrong with the minimize button. I had the same graphic for the unfocussed and pressed states (no shade difference). It's subtle, so I hadn't caught it before. I think it's right now. I'll upload the corrected one.

(Ignore my duplicate post; I guess that's what happens when you hit the back button after posting a comment.) - Jan 06 2008
Hey Robert, thanks again for your original work. The stuff you are doing is really great (and fun to mod!).

I'll have a look at that minimize button. I'm not seeing it on my laptop, but maybe I didn't get the exact same shade? And thanks for the heads up on the "engine" needs. - Jan 06 2008

No, I'm not likely to create any completely new themes. I don't have the artistic talent, so I basically just enjoy "tweaking".

I was working on something based on a theme I created for my Palm OS device, but I couldn't get things to look good enough in a complete GTK theme to make me happy. (Palm themes are significantly less complicated.) - Mar 28 2008
Hey Robert, congratulations on being chosen as the PCLinuxOS theme! I was looking at some screenshots over at The Coding Studio, and thought I recognized your theme. So I came back here to compare and make sure, and saw your announcement.

Most of us already recognized how excellent your themes are, but it is nice to see you get this type of "endorsement" as well. - Mar 27 2008

Sorry, but it looks like I missed your question from a long time ago. You've probably found the answer, but in case someone else happens along and is asking the same question, I'll try to be helpful.

If I am understanding your question properly, at least with Firefox, the solution is not too difficult. To get different color text for the menu items in Firefox, edit your /home/USERNAME/.mozilla/firefox/*.default/chrome/userChrome.css file by adding the following:

menubar, menubutton, menu, menuitem, menupopup, popup > * {
color: white !important;
}

The "USERNAME" folder is different for everyone; you'll have to just look at what yours is; make sure you have turned on "show hidden files" in your Nautilus view menu. There is a sample file in there already with some info for a few settings.

I can't remember how many options for color there are off the top of my head, but I am aware that you can use "white" and "silver" and there are others.

Sorry I can't help more, but my knowledge about this stuff is quite limited. - Jan 20 2008
Yes, I think I can. Because I included the wallpapers and splash screens, there is an archive within the archive. First extract all the files in the archive you download from GNOME-Look.org, then you will have the second archive named UbuntuBasicBlack.tar.gz. That one is the one you can use to install the GDM theme.

Sorry that is so complicated, but I thought it would be best to keep everything together so that people who like the GDM can also have a splash screen and wallpaper to match. Let me know if you are still having trouble. - Jul 03 2007

I did a little search to find this background because it is being used for someone else's GDM background. I too wanted a version without the foot..., so I made one from the original 3200x1200 version available for download. I also have a widescreen display, so I could manipulate it for that too. Thanks for releasing it as PNG so that all can be done easily.

(For those of you who also want a footless version, just download the bluewebfoot3200x1200.png file and manipulate it to your heart's content in GIMP. My method was to create a new picture in GIMP at 1280x800 with a black background; then I opened bluewebfoot3200x1200.png pic and copied and pasted it onto my new file; then I just scaled it and moved it around until I had the new picture I wanted to save; in my case, the foot was left outside the edge of the picture so now it's gone. Enjoy.) - Jan 01 2008

Well, that was simple after all. I just copied the old Metacity folder contents over into the new theme, and I'm good to go. Inkscape icons are back to normal and I still have all that "rounded" goodness that I liked so much in the old version.
Thanks again for all your hard work. - Dec 31 2007
Yes, you are right. I was using a much older version. I see now that you listed that as a fix in the latest version.

Unfortunately, I much prefer the old version with rounded buttons, subtle button colors, and rounded windows. So I guess I'll stick with the older version and just live with the Inkscape problem since I don't use it very often.

Hmm..., I wonder if I can try doing some tweaking myself and get the "best of both". I've got some vacation time, so I'll look into it. - Dec 31 2007
Yes, I have the same Inkscape problem. It doesn't make the program "unusable", but if there was a solution, that'd be great.

BTW, SlicknesS is really cool too, but I still prefer NoName, so please don't drop it. - Dec 30 2007
Thanks for a great looking theme!

I'm not sure if this was covered elsewhere, but if not....
Just a note for people who like a slightly larger panel. At least in Ubuntu, the dimensions of the home/username/.theme/NoName/gtk-2.0/Panel/panelbuntu.png file can be modified with a drawing program (GIMP in my case) simply by changing the dimensions of the graphic to whatever size you prefer (36 pixels in my case) and saving it. Logout and back in and you can adjust the panel to the size you wanted. I suspect that an extreme size change might have detrimental effects on the "clarity" of the graphic, but minor adjustments look fine. - Dec 04 2007

This is off to a good start. I'm looking forward to the complete package. Please keep working at it.

One thing I noticed that you might want to rework is the alignment of the window resize buttons "icons" (the -, box, and X). They appear too low on the button, not centered. - Aug 10 2007

Probably because the logo section was pasted in instead of starting from scratch. ;) I like using Inkscape for the initial design work, then exporting it to whatever size bitmap. Works better that way for me, but then it is a lot more work than just cutting a pasting stuff from other bitmaps. - May 17 2007

The "solution" is simple, but unfortunately, it wasn't made clear. You have to click on the picture "name" while browsing the site. You can then download an archive with multiple resolutions in it. Clicking on the picture only gives you the preview at 800x600.

Great picture! It would help to make it clear how to download it. - May 05 2007
