Appreciate the reply though.

I'm very new to editing GTK themes and was wondering if anyone could help.

I want to make the dropdown menu entries more compact (the entries under Applications Places System).

I usually run themes that compact the menu a lot more than the dust theme, as my laptop screen is only 1280 x 800 and it gets cramped real quick.

Exactly which part of the theme file do I need to edit to achieve this? - Nov 18 2008

great idea, just what i needed, however, doesn't appear to work on my laptop: kubuntu 8.10 KDE 4 ATI radeon HD 2400.

guessing it must be something to do with the sensors etc. - Oct 26 2008

OK, I'm a real noob at KDE. I've been using Gnome for about 3 years, but was seduced by the absolutely stunning KDE4. My problem is, I've absolutely no idea how to install this theme. please can someone point me in the right direction? - Oct 24 2008

Absolutely stunning. I have been looking for a usable dark theme for a long time and yours fits the bill. I love the active window stripe and when using it with the GDM, it gives a real sense of unity to the whole experience.

I'm using it with Oxygen-Refit green icons.

The only thing that I find a little bothersome is the size of the drop down menus - my screen res is 1280x800 and the menus (mainly System>Preferences) fill the screen when clicked. I'm guessing this is to do with the murrine engine as it doesn't happen on themes that use the Aurora engine. Is there any way I (or you) can change this?

good job on fixing the bugs. i'm using the theme now, looks great. well done. - Jul 20 2008
I'm looking forward the the bug fixes. This could be a very nice, understated, theme. keep up the good work. Voted good. - Jul 15 2008
The overall look is lovely, however, the bugs and some detailing prevent it being used. The main one is the one that's been pointed out already, but there also seems to be an issue with the tabs within Firefox 3, not sure if the slight deformation is intentional...

Also, I'm not mad about the "highlight circles" when moving the mouse over toolbar elements, it looks crude. IMHO would look better using squares/rectangles similar to Aurora Smooth.

I'm not sure if I'm making sense as I'm just about to go to bed, if you want to me clarify, I will.

Still a VERY promising theme. Thanks - Jul 14 2008

might i suggest you blank out the email addresses you have on your screenshot? you may find the owners would rather not have random spam emails from people...

just a thought. - Jul 15 2008

very nice. i like these types of clean, no nonsense themes (i mainly use aurora smooth), makes a change from all the overglossed rubbish about today and vista wannabes

well done - Jul 01 2008
