This link: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1219277 has worked for me since 9.04 and is still working on 10.04 Ubuntu/Xubuntu. I have almost no issues using this workaround adopting it to any apps that cause problems...

This is by far my favorite theme so far but I do have some functional problems as someone mentioned before. Firefox is nearly unusable with the theme when it comes to site like Ubuntu Forums [http://www.ubuntuforums.org/]. There the default black in text boxes is overriden with white so the textboxes have white font one a white background and it's almost impossible to post some intelligible. Also I have a problem with OpenOffice as I'm not really big on have my documents look like they're negatives, hehe. I was wondering if there was a way to exempt certain programs from the Theme or at least change default colors for text boxes and such.

I didn't expand all the replies so I missed that reply about the Neutronium Theme instructions explaining how to fix the Firefox problem. Hoping I can do the same with OpenOffice.

I like it very much but it makes firefox unusable (with some sites, like gmail and others). If you can fix this, I don't mind ugly hacks, it would be great! :D
Cheers and congratulations on a work well done.

i LOVE that you did this but the only thing is that all the google services' text are hard to make out in firefox.... is there something to be done with that? or are we just kina SOL?

I found a way to bypass this :)
There is another black theme here in gnome look with instructions on how to solve the firefox issue:

Yes, a very good theme, and I love it ;)

My Firefox is perfectly usable with it.
What I did:
Edit->Settings->Content->Font Colour:
Uncheck "use system colours"

it seems you have another theme "obsidian with panel" included. that gtkrc file is including other .rc files and comes with a load of pixmaps included, but the rc files do not seem to be included and the pixmaps are unused.

is this intended?

That thing at the upper left corner of the screenshot is conky isn't it?, could you share the theme that you are using? it's very nice :).

Great GTK theme, I like dark themes but it seems that my eyes don't :P.
