Simply White

Compiz Themes by jestersmurf 4 comments

I don't think "Simply White" is something fancy which is hard to come up with.
And since both themes theme utterly different applications, there is no possibility of confusing them.

So I think the name should stay.

Great theme by the way! - Sep 20 2006

Gentle System Sounds

System Sounds by Bi-Bo 13 comments

these are not exactly what I would consider gentle sounds. they do sound nice though, the name is just a bit confusing, the theme does not offer what the name implies just my .50 pence - Mar 18 2006

Gentle Gnome mockup

IIRC this will be possible with cairo.
This would be exactly what gnome needs to be more appreciated by "klicky-bunti"-users as we call them in Germany - and even as an ion3 user I have to admit that this looks awesome.
Without the transparency it might not even take very long to render... - Nov 28 2005

could you make a 1600x1200 version for those who happen to use a 4:3 resolution?
appart from that great work! - Mar 10 2005
gnomemotions - transparent pack

Wallpapers Gnome by ravnen 6 comments

good wallpaper! however the gradient looks quite 'choppy' at 1600x1200, how about a svg version, this would make it easy to create matching backgrounds for all resolutions without any quality trade-in at all.
If you would allow me to do it, I'd do it myself and post it with credits to you - Feb 19 2005
MacOSX Session Screen

Gnome 2 Splash Screens by Senki 8 comments

why does everything on this site has to be gnome related, it is 'eyecandy for your gnome-desktop', that does NOT imply that on EVERYTHING should be a gnome logo or whatever.
most users want to customize their desktop, if they would want it to look like a gnome desktop, they wouldn't have to change anything. - Feb 18 2005

Etiquette Icons

Icon Sub-Sets by AndyFitz 49 comments

awesome icon theme, really great work! I know there are much icons still left to be done but it would be really neat if video mimetypes could be one of the first. (I use the mimetypes for programs that create/edit files so that would make the iconset almost complete for me)

Keep up the good work - Feb 07 2005

how about an gdm theme? - Jan 30 2005
Ubuntu GDM

GDM Themes by paulsh 10 comments

I think the colours should be less intense, the background of the ubuntu logo should be as pastel as the rest, a light brown with low saturation or something.
Of course this is just my very personal opinion. Good work! - Jan 26 2005
The Reinhardt Style (formely Slicker)

KDE 3.5 Themes by leinir 97 comments

if I set the kicker to be transparent and click on one of the buttons the background will be changed to be normal button background, which it shouldn't because that's not transparent :)
also if I quickly move the mouse over the buttons they will 'flicker' with the button colour - Nov 26 2004

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by jrch2k 357 comments

could you _please_ redesign the window decoration dialog, it doesn't fit on my screen with all those options shown at once, you should use submenus (advanced options... or something)
I'd really appreaciate that :) - Oct 28 2004

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 245 comments

again I've found a little issue, in the select folder-dialog (in juk) closed folder-icons look great, but the line (on the right of the icon) isn't changed when the folder is opened, this is really minor but when you notice it, it really gets on the nerves... - Oct 22 2004
Improving KDE

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by andrunko 313 comments

imho the round box around selected icons could need a little anti-aliasing
and the rubberband doesn't work right if you move the mouse quickly to some edge of the desktop while selecting
despite of this, great work, thanks :) - Oct 21 2004

in the k-menu the round 'buttons' ("All Applications", "Actions", etc.) have light borders around them, they should be the color of the rest of the background - Oct 10 2004

In Kopete the ICQ-Icon looks damn ugly, doesn't match the rest imho.
Another thing would be the smilie before the Contactname in Kopete, would be nice if this would be changed to something nicer...
I don't like the kmix icon (in systray) aswell, should be 'rounder', perhaps resizing the little yellow thingy at the end, make it a bit larger, might solve this.
The Kopete-systray icon should be changed to the same icon it has in the k-menu..
well, thats all i can think of now, besides this a very good iconset, looks far more professional than crystal, very neat indeed. Keep up the good work :) - Oct 06 2004

(kicker) systray frame be gone

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by ja-el 7 comments

it wasn't supposed to be good implemented it was supposed to work and I __really__ wonder why no one of the kdedevs has removed this frame before I don't no nothin about kde or c++ and it was easy as pie.
And I guess the only difference between a 'good implementation' and this would be to have the lines deleted instead of commented out :) (provided nobody wants this frame and I never ever heard 'let it stay' in the bug report...)
Well whats more to say, it saves some cpu time aswell :> - Aug 13 2004
dotNET2

KDE 3.5 Themes by xaerocool 23 comments

Just found two other things, I just want you to notice these, I don't request them to be changed or something, don't mean to bug you, just some feedback :)
1. In every contextmenu (+K-Menu and Desktop-Menu) the gray stripe at the left site can't be seen if the item is hovered, it is completely overpainted by the selectionmarker, my guess is that the selectionmarker should seem half-transparent, so the stripe should be visible through it, thouh thats just taste again.
2. The KNewsticker applet for kicker flickers while using this style, I noticed this same bug a few months ago with .dotNET so the bug should be in the old codebase somewhere (I'll reopen the bug on bugs.kde.org (http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63494) refering to .dotNET style, I hope this helps get an idea of whats wrong)

just noticed that in the .dotNET shipped with kde 3.3b2 the bug -is- present but hardly noticable (see bug report)

your theme has the potential to rock, it looks very professional besides it's flaws - Aug 08 2004
dotNET2

KDE 3.5 Themes by xaerocool 23 comments

just found another 'flaw' (it's a matter of taste though I think it also doesn't fit inside the style):
I don't know where else to find such menus but anyways open KMail and right click on one of the column-descriptions (unread or total for example), I think when hovering one of the items, the checkbox should not get a thick border, so it should be a little smaller so there won't be such an effect, this also matches several other things, like column-descriptions themselves or scrollbars.
I understand this is a very early version of this style, so I hope you don't mind if I put up things you already made your mind up about and just couldn't implement for the time beeing. - Aug 08 2004

KDE 3.5 Themes by xaerocool 23 comments

good work, everything looks very sleek, only two things bother me...the tabs need a rework, to look more like the buttons imho and textfields (like the location bar in konqueror) need a border imho.
Thanks for devoting your time to make kde look better, i really appreciate it :) - Aug 08 2004

Icon Sub-Sets by dave 245 comments

well, whats missing:
-the klipper looks unfitting
can't find anything else without searching for it so now to inconsistency:
The panel icons for K-Menu, Konqueror, KMail etc hardly fit to the browser or file icons, they look to rough and edgy imho - Aug 06 2004

I'd like to recolor those icons to fit with various color schemes, is that OK for you? I'll credit you of course and all, just wanted to have your permission before touching anything :) - Aug 06 2004

..thank you!
This is a really great piece of software, even though I hardly use any gtk apps having them look like the rest of my desktop is just great.
I'm looking forward for future releases, looks like it will take care of more than just the widget style in future. Keep up the good work! - Aug 03 2004
Ghost Cursors

Cursors by amasella 12 comments

great theme, far better than any I've seen till now, but there are somethings I don't like about this one:
-All cursors like hand, help, etc have the second icon overlap the normal cursor, I know this is just personal taste but I think the second icon should not overlap the cursor.
The rest is perfect, I really like the 'sandclock' sequenz - Jun 11 2004
Windows, Doing What They Do Best.

Wallpapers Windows by crab2004 3 comments

it looks like most people here never tried newer versions of windows, in windows xp pro i've only seen a few blue screens and i crash my x server almost frequently so there is no difference for me. windows doesnt crash more/less than linux.
i saw a move this day in cinema which inspired me to the following sentence:
