I suggest the author re-base this icon set on the latest elementary icons, 2.0.5, as many of these performance issues have already been addressed. - Apr 07 2009

Ever since your 2nd update, my window borders appear flat and are missing the window title and min/max/close buttons. Strangely enough, the metacity theme seems fine, i.e. it looks fine on other gtk themes. Any idea why that is? - Apr 06 2009

Why not at least use a color from your palette? e.g. #996B5C - Feb 07 2009

Any plans to include the Aurora midnight gtkrc in the next 1.5 release? I noticed that it is not available in the 1.5.1 download.
Oh, and is it just my new nvidia driver, or does 1.5 render *much* faster than 1.4? - Jan 04 2009
I can't seem to fix this by just tweaking the gtkrc. theme-progressbar ythickness is set to 2. Changing the value to either 1 or 3 looks equally worse than 2. I think a src patch is probably the only way to go. Can you post your fix? - Apr 21 2008

The binary is named "twf".
You probably need to install it first.
Your distro likely has a package for it. - Feb 26 2008
OK - After further digging into the clearlooks gtkrc, I found a workaround for the dark on dark menu item text in the ComboxBox and ComboBoxEntry widgets. Apparently, this too is a bug:

To fix this, modify style "theme-menu-item" accordingly:

style "theme-menu-item" = "theme-wider"
fg[PRELIGHT] = @selected_fg_color
text[PRELIGHT] = @selected_fg_color

# Work around starts here
text[NORMAL] = @fg_color
text[SELECTED] = @selected_fg_color
text[ACTIVE] = @fg_color
text[INSENSITIVE] = shade (1.70,@bg_color)

With these 2 fixes (i.e. this plus the combobox-text-color-workaround) Aurora-Midnight looks perfect with black on white text boxes in twf. - Jan 24 2008
To match the similar widgets, text[INSENSITIVE] should be:

text[INSENSITIVE] = shade (1.70,@bg_color) - Jan 23 2008
Looking at the latest clearlooks gtkrc, they have an explicit workaround for what appears to be a gtk bug:

The following should work for Aurora-Midnight:
style "combobox-text-color-workaround"
text[NORMAL] = @fg_color
text[ACTIVE] = @fg_color
text[PRELIGHT] = @fg_color
text[SELECTED] = @selected_fg_color
text[INSENSITIVE] = @selected_fg_color

widget_class "*.<GtkComboBox>.<GtkCellView>" style "combobox-text-color-workaround" - Jan 23 2008
I love the Aurora-Midnight theme, but it still has some issues with color schemes containing dark on light input boxes. i.e. text_color is darker than base_color.

The most problematic widget is ComboBox.
Adding the following to 'style "theme-combo-box"' gets us part of the way there:
text[NORMAL] = @fg_color
text[PRELIGHT] = @fg_color

However, this only fixes the "button" text, not the list items. They are still dark on dark, instead of light on dark. The same list item problem also affects the ComboBoxEntry widget.

Although I'm no gtkrc expert, I'm certain that these issues are fixable - the clearlooks engine can use this color scheme without issue.

Keep up the good work. - Jan 23 2008

The gtkrc for Aurora-Midnight hard codes the cursor color to #FFFFFF. This assumes that all text boxes will be white on black. With the following fix, I can use the Aurora-Midnight theme with black on white (or any other color for that matter) text boxes and the cursor will still be visible.

GtkEntry::cursor_color = @text_color
GtkTextView::cursor_color = @text_color

Keep up the good work. - Jan 08 2008

I've been using this icon theme for a while now and am very interested in the alternate colored folders. Unfortunately, none are a complete replacement for the default ones since they can only replace the 256x256 version of folder.png and folder_accept.png. Do you have any plans to provide versions for all of the folder-based places icons for each size? - Jul 30 2008

IMO, /apps/gnome-session-logout.svg would look better if the circle itself were centered within the green block. - Jan 09 2008
