Does anyone know why my theme looks so ugly? Check it out:

This theme requires the latest gtk2-engines(1:2.12.1-0ubuntu1). This theme works fine in Ubunut 7.10 but not for previous releases.

Hi,

this theme is very well done, but it does not play well with OpenOffice. You will get black text on a black menu, just as in Firefox. Is this fixable anyway, because not seeing the OO menu is rather distracting.

By the way, I didn't like some minor things about your theme and changed the following things:

Changed the padding in menus to 5 pixels. Your 0px setting was letting the menus look very crowded and gave them a "cut-off" look.
Enabled progress bar animation
Removed the "striped" background in GTK trees, such as in Nautilus where even lines are differently colored than odd lines. I felt this gives the desktop an unsteady look, so I evened that out.

If you think my changes are for the better for everyone, I can commit them back to you if you like (or if anyone else is interested).

Cheers,
Matthias

Alrighty, the changes are really minor, here's the diff:

< GtkMenuBar ::internal-padding = 0

> GtkTreeView::odd_row_color = "#FFF"

< animation = FALSE

You can use it to make a patch file if you want.

Best,

This is a bug in gnome-panel not in moomex-theme.
You can try and remove "~/.gconf" (don't forget to backup it first just in case) . This should reset the gnome-panel (and the rest of gnome) settings. It's a drastic way to do it. hope it will help

Sorry I was not enough clear .
Therefore, when you compare the print screen:
Http://www.ubuntu-fr.org/
And the one you put on the site, you can see that my panel does not look like that of vista.

I changed icons with nuoveXT-1.6,
I used Screenlets, but the panel remains the same as that of gnome.

so, should I just changes the properties, and the colors of the panel to make it as yours "vista"?
Or I must install another module Who will do it automatically.

Did you install gtk2-engines-pixbuf ?
Type in terminal:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf.

If the theme still looks wierd, check if you have clearlooks engine.

I'm glad you like my theme and I'm more than happy to help you.

I really like your theme. One problem though. The logoff window is unreadable. It repeats the panel-background.

This is a bug.
To solve the problem,

edit the gtkrc file,
moomex => gtk-2.0 => gtkrc
search for the word "BUG" and comment this line

then you have set up the panel background manually.

Although I'm not actually using this theme I do like it, and agree it certainly one of the better ones.
This may sound like such a stupid question:
How did you manage to make the firefox menubar font white??
Is it a specific firefox theme, a config hack or part of the 'moomex-theme'?
Thanx.
