Changes June 24, 2014

+++ all screenshots updated +++

More work on the scrollbar ;
removed some of the normal stepper opacity to
eliminate the ruler overlay bleed thru
darkened stepper sides, better definition
increased contrast of stepper prelight
reduced trough border to 2 pixels from 3, better look

Changed the background tab border from silver to gold, better look

Changed the notebook background, added a gold border and made four different interior designs , I like the vertical look, but you may like one of the others.
Just open the Tabs folder and rename your choice to notebook.png

You also have a choice of three different menu looks.
Just open the Menu folder and rename your choice to menu.png

Well, I have tried to remain true to this theme's name.
FiftyWays, and give you more options, as some of
you have commented there are many ways to arrive
at getting where you want and what you want.

How many themes here at opendesktop give you, so much choice?

Happy theming,

June 17, 2014 update:

Doubled trough vert1 & horiz1 pngs, now 2082 pxs.
If you have a screen size larger than that you can
set the scrollbar.rc, line 18 & line 32; from FALSE to>
overlay_stretch = TRUE

or use GIMP
and create your own specific size from original.

Too bad, we can not use a tile option, instead of
only stretch in the gtkrc it would eliminate this
problem. I set the stretch as FALSE, for a more
consistant look.

Changed this in the gtkrc
GtkScrollbar::fixed-slider-length = 0 # Don't change slider length, just lock it to the min-slider-length
It was 1, and made excessive scrolling. Nice look,
poor function.

Changed the slider look, increased the end points,
up 1px. Darkened the ends slightly. Removed some
of the end highlights.

Reduced the minium slider length to 93px was 100px
(slightly too large for some apps)
line 70 of the gtkrc, if you want to adjust further.
Some say 64px is the magic size.

Had not even looked at fonts til your

Another, similar look, You may like ...
URW Chancery L Italic has a little more
flair maybe not as clean though.

It comes in at the right time.

Thanks Invetero,

I have been working on themes for a time
now, just when I think I have it all figured
out, I find something new and realize there
is more in here than I thought or have
forgotten something I should know.
I guess what I am trying to say is...
it involves a lot of trial and error....
tenacity.

Looking at your screenshots, I was just wondering about the icon set you're using. I haven't come across those, but they look good.

Looks great, though.

Robert,
I am using a combination of mostly
Snow sabre with some Snow sabre black
thrown in as task bar icons.

You can find them here at gnome-look,

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Snow+sabre?content=123559

I have stopped including an iconrc
file with my newest themes as most
people seem to be quite particular
about their icon sets. Plus the
extra work it entails.

...thanks for the positive comment

I have been an admirer and user of your

Scrollbar could use some work but I like the color scheme. It's sort of fantasy/steampunk.

Thanks, for the comment.
I agree with you and see if I can
come up with a better scrollbar.
As for the steampunk, I never even
realized it until the other day
when I played mahjongg in full screen.
My jaw dropped and eyes grew big, Wow,
I was shocked and well pleased.
I guess I have been working
in Gimp at 800-1600 X magnification too
long and not looking at the big picture
enough.
