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

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.

It's a very good job, but I have a problem with openoffice when I use it. I can't use Openoffice's options, do you know why?

So there is no menu arrows in xfce. Maybe it's calculated but imo it isn't looks good. Then background of xfce's desktop icons makes font is hard to read, solution:

#Add this to gtkrc and change colors and font.

style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {

XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 00
font_name="Bauhaus Bold"
base[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
base[SELECTED] = "#ffffff"
base[ACTIVE] = "#73b2d0"

fg[NORMAL] = "#ffffff"
fg[SELECTED] = "#73B2D0"
fg[ACTIVE] = "#D17100"
text[NORMAL] = "#766C14"
}
widget_class "*XfdesktopIconView*" style "xfdesktop-icon-view"

and the background of panel looks not enough good but it's only my opinion ;)

I like the theme in general, but I keep getting black text on extremely dark grey background for tooltips, making them nearly impossible to read,
