Thanks for the feedback.

I tracked down the bug... It was caused by gtk-menu-popup-delay. You can comment out (or delete) this line in the gtkrc file. It should be the third line down from the top. I will upload new package tomorrow with that and a couple other fixes. - Jul 04 2009

Thanks! Unfortunately I don't have the time to implement this correctly, so I can't actually submit this. It was a quick fix for me. I really liked the results... So I'm hoping someone else will be interested, and do it right. - Aug 23 2008

Are you talking about the GTK2 theme?

If so, do the scrollbars and sliders display correctly? What distro are you using, and did you compile gtk2-engines from gnome sources or from a distro repo?

I have only tested this theme on my PC. I'm running Feisty with gtk2-engines-2.11.4 from the pollycoke repo.

If you mean the MCity theme... It shouldn't have buttons on unfocused windows. You should only see them on hover. - Aug 16 2007
For some reason, my screenshots are not updating. I will try to fix that next release. - Aug 14 2007

There are still lots of things to be fixed. Yes, mostly some of the colors. Also some size\spacing inconsistencies. And specific application issues. - Aug 14 2007

this is not an error in the theme. you have to install it system-wide in /usr/share/themes or you could even install it to /root/.themes

using the theme manager only installs to /home/username/.themes. since synaptic is run as root, it does not inherit the user's current theme. - Sep 04 2007

when the window is shaded\rolled up, it looks a little funny because of the kinda bevel on the bottom of the frame. the titlebar text overlaps this (things like g & j).

also, when the window is shaded and unfocused there is a grey line at the very bottom.

otherwise, it's a very nice theme. - Mar 23 2007

the theme is called Aqua Glaze, although the downloaded archive and contained folder are Aqua Glade (d not z).

also there is a typo under Directories=

great theme otherwise. would love to have svg though - Jan 11 2007

while i think it's a novel idea, it looks like either one would require too much screen real estate (even with the transparency).

the horizontal one appeals more to me, but it would require way more movement than necessary to launch an application... click on applications menu, go to sound & video (which now is at least half way across the screen), choose the first item (now half (or all) the way across the screen again). and what about menus that are longer than the screen?

the pie design would certainly need less movement to navigate, but i would imagine that it would have even trouble more dealing with larger menus. - Mar 27 2006

version listed? 1.0 or 1.1? i think that's awfully high for something so incomplete. you don't start at 1.0 and work your way up... 1.0 should be the goal... the finished product. and as for the screenshots... they are not very representative of what we are downloading. there is nothing in any of them that show any buttons, stock icons, or the stippling. if you're making a gtk theme, you should be showing off gtk apps that use a lot of different widgets (take a look the the gtk section on sometime). if some real gtk apps had been featured, i wouldn't have even bothered with it.

and yes, i did more or less say "everything is wrong", but i followed it up with a big paragraph citing what was wrong... so, um... there you go. you weren't meant to do anything with that. it was strictly my opinion. - Jul 28 2005
there are many aspects of mac's new gui that i like. this theme has none of them.

stipple\scanline is ugly. it was ugly on mac, it was ugly on kde (baghira), and it's ugly on gnome. even more so, since the menu bar doesn't get stippled. handles don't don't need to be aqua-fied. all of the vertical resize bars are messed up. the horizontal resize bars don't look so hot either since they aren't big enough to see the image. text entries look terrible rounded, as the cursor overlaps the rounded corners. menus (main, drop-down, pop-up, etc) have no border, which looks really bad. and as with most aqua\mac themes, xchat's input line is unusable (grey fg on white bg). the most noticeable thing, though, is that there is no consistency in the colors of the aqua images. not with each other or the stock icons.

this theme looks like what it mostly is... a bunch of other people's bad mac themes thrown into one just-as-bad theme.

and on top of all that... sloppy packaging. there are so many backup files (3 of gtkrc alone), unused icons, and files of questionable licensing ( (also unused)). - Jul 27 2005

So far this theme is looking really good. If I may make one suggestion...

The icon you have chosen for gnome-fs-client is not immediately recognizable. It looks like a "Windows" (metacity properties) icon... In fact, it's the same icon you used for that too. On the first screenshot you have posted above, the first icon on the very last row is quite clearly a computer. Seems to me, that icon would be more appropriate.

Other than that, I think most everything else looks great. Thanks. - Jul 18 2005
I don't see where this is "debian specific" or "distro-dependent". I also the Windows logo in there... So is it "Windows specific" or OS-dependent" as well? Yeah, there are Debian and Ubuntu logos on some of the icons, but they are probably\hopefully extras. I think you guys should hold off on such comments until there is an actual release. Then, and only, if you find application needlessly distro-branded would any such remarks be valid. - Jul 15 2005

despite the vivid color(s), this is an utterly boring theme. Had you made use of some engine other than the default, it might be more interesting. together with the MCITY theme, the menubar and toolbar have big black spaces on the right side. i wasn't particularly fond of Metabox to begin with, but making it flat and smaller doesn't seem to help it much either. - Jul 03 2005

really, there is not a single image in the tarball that looks even remotely like it might have come from the theme in the screenshot. and on top of that, i just doesn't work. even if it covered the entire titlebar, which it doesn't, it's all mix-matched... peices from different themes =( - Jun 04 2005

for starters, you zipped it... so you can't drag&drop it into gnome's theme manager. and then you only provided the gtk-2.0 directory. everyone will have to create the Clearlooks-Indigo directory themselves. while these are pretty simple things to get past, they are certainly a break from how gnome\gtk are usually distributed and is sure to cause a lot of confusion for less experienced users.

as for the theme... too black. it's really difficult to see. i can barely find the resize bars or the resize handle (?.. whatever you call that grippy thing at the bottom right corner of apps). i can't find the scrollbars at all unless my mouse is over them. certianly can't see black icons on the panel. can't tell the unused workspaces from the panel on the ws switcher. firefox is an abosulute mess. i can't see the adblock button or anything else the resides in the ffx's statusbar. the mixer applet is no good since you can't see anything but the speaker cone(?). even the tooltips are somewhat difficult to see.

i know that's a lot.. sorry. - May 18 2005
