Description:

Darker Ice is a darker advancement of the Dark Ice theme. Please download this theme and share with others. If you notice anything that looks out of place or if you have any improvements to offer, please feel free to contact me or comment below.

Thanks again to AnsheShem, the creator of the original Dark Ice, for the inspiration. I've also included a metacity theme with permission from wbw called Dark-Ice-Divinorum. Much thanks to wbw for their excellent work! http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=71512

This is my first GTK theme.

This theme package includes:

1 Gtk2 theme called Darker Ice
3 Metacity themes for use with Darker Ice. The original Dark-Ice from AnsheShem, Dark-Ice Colors with colored-on-hover metacity buttons, as well as Dark-Ice-Divinorum, supplied by the talented wbw.
2 Emerald themes, Dark-Ice and Dark-Ice Colors
Last changelog:

10 years ago

0.4 - Initial beta - comments or questions welcomed.

0.5 - Fixed some color issues and took a first shot at the scrollbars. How do they look?

0.5.5 - Fixed the desktop highlighting as suggested by arialis111. We don't need no stinkin' menu-arrows. Just kidding. I'll fix that in the next release. Have a better panel-bg? Suggest it! Make it! Submit it!

0.6 - Nicer scrollbars are here!

0.9 - Fixed a lot of nasty things in this update. I've removed the system specified panel and supplied you with one in the Darker Ice.tar.gz folder to specify in the panel properties. New check and radio boxes have been added. Menus now have arrows.

0.9.5 - Fixed a couple of text colors that were bugging some people. Created new panel background that matches the rest of the theme better. We're almost to 1.0! Please let me know of any bugs or usability issues you run into with this version!

0.9.6 - Added 2 metacity themes that include colored hover buttons.

0.9.7 - Removed previous metacity themes because they sucked. Added Dark-Ice Colors and Dark-Ice-Divinorum metacity themes. Added Dark-Ice Colors emerald theme. 1 or 2 other random fixes.

0.9.9 - Fixed a few things that I didn't really like, including sliders and progress-bars. I hope this theme is usable for everybody with most applications. There is one thing that is bothering me and that is that GtkCombos appear blue. I've looked everywhere for something that may be causing this, but I haven't yet figured it out. Please let me know if you can take a few minutes to look at my gtkrc. This bug is not in the original Dark-Ice which makes it even weirder. Enjoy.

1! - Ok, I'm proud to announce Darker Ice 1. A Dark theme that is, as far as I know, completely usable. Special thanks to AnsheShem, wbw, and others who have helped my first gtk theme become complete. Thanks also to the 10,000 of you that have downloaded it.

1.01 Copied Milentije's fixes in from the comments. Also added one fix of my own. This theme still looks stunning. Almost 30000 downloads and counting.

1.5 - better fixes for the problems described in the comments. Please enjoy Darker Ice under the GPL and consider purchasing this theme if you actually enjoy using it. Please do not whine, because purchase or donation are entirely OPTIONAL. Support your artists! http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html

1.6 - Fixed the checkbox bug.

1.7 - Made things prettier and adjusted some text colors.

1.8 - Fixed (hopefully) some text things that were bugging everyone. If you have a problem take a screenshot for me.

i've been undergoing same problem above.

here's a fix for that.

>vi ~/.themes/DarkerIce/gtk-2.0/gtkrc

and edit some lines,

fg[XXXXX] = "#XXXXXX"

in my case, i could see text distinguishable after editing these two lines below,

fg[NORMAL] = "#8C8C8C"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#8C8C8C"

default text coloring is too whity (#D7D7D7), so edit this to some more darker color (#8C8C8C).

hope this will help you.

Great theme already, will be my no. 1, when the issue with the text color is fixed. Until then I can hardly see the folders in my mailfile and will have to continue using another...

Great theme - thank you!

I hope you can fix the progress bars. It's hard to read the text over them.

But I'm still using it in the hopes of it being fixed.

All the best,

One further detail..

The theme manager will not allow me to customize the colors for this theme. Can you add a fix for this?

Can you fix it in next version?

This is NEARLY perfect, but has a few flaws. The main windows are too bright white, for one. It makes some of the text hard to read once in a while.

This is a fantastic theme.

But in some applications and warning messages the text color is light grey on white background and almost invisible to read. Also shutdown menu looks a bit odd.

beautiful if you made a version were the buttons don't have black outlines. Like in the original, were none of the buttons don't have the black outlines.

It's a fantastic theme, the one I've been looking for. Thx for making my desktop prettier.

I just didn't like the metacity buttons (sorry!), so I just did my own buttons (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=71512) inspired in the Divinorum theme.

In case you like it, feel free to add it in your next release if you want to.

I tried lots of themes before Darkerice and there was always something I didn't like. But Darkerice is perfect. It's an amazing theme. No matter the wallpaper or the icons I use, it looks great. Thanks a lot.

Great theme. The only downfall IMO is the lack of hover colors to the open, close, minimize buttons.

Actually, I did in fact create this theme. Just as much as AnsheShem created his/hers. I spent many hours editing the colors and images as well as adding support for other desktop environments and the emerald window decorator.

AnsheShem's theme was based on "Royalty Black." Mine is based on his. If you'd like to create a theme from mine, please do. I have requested you do this in the summary.

The only reason I added a donation link is because some users may feel happy to donate a nickel or two to offset the costs of my labor. I really appreciate your criticism, however I have cited my inspiration quite clearly in the summary and I am not asking you to give me money. You may use whatever theme you like and you may even edit mine to your preference.

This theme is nice at all. But text-color is almost invisible in the term on the white bg. How can i change it ? I looked in gtkrc and found nothing.
And one thing more. I think buttons should look much better if they would be less rounded. I had already seen this style in another theme.
Best regards, Anton

Again, this is avant-window-navigator. If you're using ubuntu 7.10, the best way to get avant-window-navigator is to follow this guide.

I created an account here just to praise this theme. Simply awesome.

My only request would be to perhaps add a little bit of color to the mouseover animation of the window buttons. Some red or blue might look nice. Perhaps one version for each.
