It's a great theme, using it right now, but I have one question: How do get the black menubar without the 1 or 2 pixels whitespace? Because in your second screenshot it doesnt have it ;)

Thanks!

Very well. Can you make a black-lightgrey analogue? Or tell, how I can make it independently, please.

But could you say what that gtk pixmap package is called? And the file menu in browsers are solid black, can't read it :|

hi,
just wanted to say that your theme unfortunately bears the same problems as i already discovered with elegant brit.

if you use xfces window-switcher (alt-tab) there is no indication on the window-switcher itself which window is currently active.

also the button that is selected as a standard (e.g. if you delete a file using shift+del there is "cancel" and "delete" with no indication what will happen if i just press enter).

for me those are the only two annoying issues that will, in the long run, make me switch to a different theme. (which is a pain, because i really like both your approach and that of elegant brit.)

any thoughts how that could work?

First extract the archive, then open the folder of BlackWhite, there is a blackwhite-gtk.tar.gz inside. Extract that then move the BlackWhite folder to your .themes in your home directory. Or move it to /usr/share/themes.

Okay, just install gtk-chtheme. It should works!

If you still need help, have a look at the fluxbox wiki http://fluxbox-wiki.org/index.php/Fluxbox-wiki

I'm having a few troubles and here's what my screen looks like... http://www.angelfire.com/games5/ebdsquad/blackandwhitenoobscreen.png
how do you get the right click menu you have in the first screenshot?
Do i need to download pixmap engine?
how do i install the thing in pekwm link?
How do I remove my bar at the bottom from my desktop to look like yours?
Where do I find those icons and how do I install them.
And, for some reason, I can't get the black bar like you did. I changed it like you said but it didn't seem to work.
Now, I'm a noob so my problems could be obvious so I'm sorry if I sound annoying.

Wow, a lot of questions. It is always a good idea to visit your distro forum for helps. So I will try to do my best.

1. Because I used fluxbox in the screenshot.

2. Yes

3. Do you have pekwm installed. If so, just put the file in .pekwm/themes folder in your home directory then rightclick on the desktop to get to the menu and click on blackwhite.

4. That panel in the screenshot is fluxbox panel so you need to use fluxbox.

5. It is in the gnome-themes package so it should be in gnome already

6. What black bar is it?

You have to manually install the themes.

For the window border, do you have compiz-fusion installed? If you do, open emerald theme manager and then click on import to install blackwhite.emerald file.

I'm not sure what the problem is with your panel, but could you show me the screenshot?

Great theme, lyrae. I'm wondering which option in the .gtkrc file can change the colour of a button when it's pressed? I tried changing a bunch of different ones but none had any effect.

Okay, you don't need to edit the gtkrc file, just open the buttons folder and change the colours you want on the button-pressed.png.

Hi, I liked this theme a lot. But when I use the menu bar it crashes. All bars disapears and I have to reestart the machine.

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10.

Thanks!

Strange. Is it just the menubar that disappears or the titlebar?
