The only thing I don't quite like is the three speakers left of the "ubuntustudio"-text. I understand what you're trying to do, but it doesnt really work since it breaks the general style of the rest of the wallpaper.

I would suggest a more simplistic icon, either the original ubuntu icon or something simple that normally associcated with studio-type applicances - say a "play"-button icon (simple arrow right).

Keep up the good work! - Jul 27 2006

Im using the tango-iconset. Check my comment from a couple of days earlier for a guide how to set up your button-layout for metacity. :) - Dec 26 2005
Hmm,right now it ought to be Corbel. But don't tell m$. ;) - Dec 25 2005
Here ya go, consider it a late christmas present:

Really? I didn't notice anything, not even on my rather low-end centrino laptop, running at 600mhz.

You could always crop the panel-background picture down a bit, you'll find it in ~/.themes/Darker Theme/gtk-2.0/Panel/panel-bg.png. Fire up the gimp and crop it down to a smaller size (both horizontally and vertically, to fit the height of your panels). :) - Dec 24 2005
Yeah,unfortunately those icons are out of my control... You'll have to file a bug to the gnome-panel developers. Only some of the panel-apps have transparent background. Wish I could do something about it. :( - Dec 24 2005
Thanks for the great rating, I will continue to develop and support this theme as it seems to be really popular. :) - Dec 22 2005
Hmm, how do you mean? It should work quite well just going into Applications > System Tools > Configuration Editor and changing apps > metacity > general > button layout to ":minimize,maximize,close" (without quotation).

Or did you mean a version where all three buttons are together like the minimize and maximize-buttons are laid out now?

Thanks for your appreciation too! - Dec 22 2005

Already did, just logged in to check it and it says it's been "approved", but I can't find it on the site (same name as here). :/ - Oct 15 2005
Ah, that's just because the background for the panels only are 24px in height. Might change that in the next release. :)

Meanwhile, just comment out the last row in the gtkrc-file in the folder "gtk-2.0", the one that includes panel.rc. - Oct 02 2005
Great! I just tested it and it works nicely. :) - Oct 01 2005
Done! :D - Oct 01 2005
Yup, that's quite right.

Please leave some comments if you find something you'd want me to change (or do it yourself, that works too). :) - Oct 01 2005
Nah, not yet I'm afraid... so anything you do in Inkscape will have to be exported in png-format. :) - Oct 01 2005
You'll have to create the xml-files for the theme by hand. Try looking at the art and xml-files for some themes to get a grip on it. I belive my xml-files are quite easy to understand (they're based what I've found other themes using, so do some research and you should be up and running quite fast).

Try creating the artwork using the Gimp or Inkscape, they're both great applications. :) - Sep 30 2005
It's called NuoveXT :)

Shouldn't be much work to fix this, will perhaps start using the theme if you fix it (or I'll fix it myself). :) - Oct 15 2005
