Too grey for me :S

When i change to a clerer color (es: #EDEDED) tabbed windows look white :(

(es: start emesene and open a tabbed chat to see).

It would be nice to add some style to panels :) (like the glossy panels in murrine-colors)

Congratulations and thanks for your work! ^^

Thank you.
It may be better with brighter colors.
Well, I will work on it.
But I'm not sure if most of the people would like it, maybe it's time to make another theme called aurora smooth lite :)

Thank you for your advice.
I didn't change anything this time except for the colors. And as for the tiny menubar you mentined, I'm pretty sure it is just the same as my previous release. Anyway, I will upload another version later.

If you right click on empty space in a panel and choose properties you can choose a background image.

Make it the same height as your bar (usually 24 pixels) otherwise it will repeat.

I've tried to upload one below that looks like the shiny vista bar. If it doesn't work I'll put the URL underneath.

You might want to change the text colour for the panel if you use a dark one such as this.. in Ubuntu you can install a program to edit the colours


sudo apt-get install gnome-color-chooser



Then on the panel tab tick foreground colour and set to white.

Thank you for your comment.
If you want a gnome-panel looks like mine, you will find a lot here (in category Other), it's nothing but a png/svg pic.

nice work, i like it.

I think the scrollbar is too thin.

But if you change it to another size, no matter larger or smaller, you will find handles on it, which I think is not so 'smooth' :)
Maybe it's just a tiny bug, cuz it happens to sliders, too. This typical value is 12 (scrollbar)/13 (slider).
