You need to have compiz enabled in order to have the transparency and the window border effect.

The new release(0.7) have black menubar by default. (the black color can be changed though)

Fantastic theme first of all, thank you very much for all the effort!

The only thing I've seen that I'd like to change is the Firefox 3 Home button Icon. Can you offer any suggestions on how to do that? My digging around has provided no results as of yet.

Again, great theme.

hi, i am using the last GyachE and the tray icon displaces the gnome-panel by about 2 pixels...have any ideea how to solve this...it must be smth easy though but don't know where to look .

I seem to not be able to attach a screenshot so maybe this text-panel can help:

Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but when you click on the bookmark icon in the location bar a second time to edit the details of the bookmark the background is black and the text is unreadable, only the fields are readable. This also occurs when you select the icon the left of the location bar. It may be possible to fix this in the about:config, but I'm not adept at that sort of thing. If anyone has a fix it would great to find out :) Otherwise, this is a great theme and in combination with Compiz Fusion is great for making people swoon over the beauty that is my Ubuntu desktop!!

Thanks for your bug report.

I will try to fix, but no promise since firefox is not a GTK app.

The only workaround to set up the panel size automatically is to make it no less than 33 pixels. To change the panel size with less than the optimum size you have to edit the gtkrc file. Type in Terminal:
gedit $HOME/.themes/Moomex/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

Comment this line under style "panel-moomex"
GtkWidget::focus_padding = 7

Nice! I use this theme as a default for some time now and it rocks!
I do have some suggestions though:

-The Gnome panel and the blue menubar at the top are too big in my opinion (33px). They take too much space on the screen.
-I prefer the scrollbar to be better visible. In the current version, its color is almost identical to the background.
-Would it be possible to make all four window edges round, like in Human?
-Will there be more room for custiomization? I'd really like to play around with different colors for the various elements.
-The colors of Firefox dropdown-menus are broken for me (grey on black), but since Firefox 3 will improve theming support, I guess that problem will be fixed soon.

This is still an excellent theme and I really enjoy using it.

First, nice theme! Great job!

I installed this through the Gnome Theme manager, but it does not seem to install fully.

The panel does not get the setting applied (various images) and the neither does the application window (see Firefox in screen).

make sure you have "gtk2-engines-pixbuf" installed and also the latest gtk2-engines (>=1:2.12.1)

how can i:
-) add the shadow to the windows - i've already activated "reflection" in the compizfusion manager.
-) make windows transparent like shown on the screenshots?

thanks

I think reflection plugin works only for certain graphic cards. It might be a bug, you should post yuor problem in compiz fusion forums.

To get some transparency, Press "Alt" and scroll down the your mouse wheel. I hope that what you mean

probably ubuntu users dont see this bug. Im using foresight with Gnome.

Ubuntu got custom dialog, Foresight is using the original dialog from Gnome

when choosing controller "Moomex" for setting up a custom "theme" it gets like that.

in another theme:

in the file panel.rc
i removed this from the file:
class "*Panel*" style "panelbg"

Then the window for system/turn off looks better.

The text in the menu bar is black in open office. Is that a bug? How can I correct it?

yeah, it's a bug related to OOo not to the theme.
I will try to fix it in the next release but then I have to make a dark background with white text for all menu style.

First of all, congrats ! Great theme.

I have just one problem (maybe bug, maybe my bad). When i click the "log out" or "shut down" action in the system menu, the pop up confirmation window gets the panel background repeated, so it's all black striped and the text gets unreadable.

I downloaded it twice to be sure i have the latest version, no luck.

I downloaded 0.4, last week and then checked back to see how to get white text on open-office and there waiting for me is 0.5 {must download when I get home}.

I'm liking this theme above all others at this point in time.
