GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 87 comments

Well, dark themes seem to be popular these days too ... and if a "big" distribution like ubuntu decides to ship a dark(er) theme, maybe even as default theme, they sure will check if the most used / important apps will get along with that.

They decided against including a dark theme in 8.04 which was just released, maybe also because of the issues you've mentioned. I hope they are able to fix most of the showstoppers themselves. With my fix I'm able to use your theme most of the time which is fine, so thank you for that :) - Apr 28 2008

Thanks for your reply. I already tried the white background color for applications, but as you say it looks not good - it just don't fit into the dark desktop theme. I'm using a trick for now, that is starting eclipse with another theme (a light one). This way I can work with eclipse and (almost) everything else is dark.

It's the same for xchat. It's using the dark colors everywhere but the chat window itself. This one stays white which then also looks ... not too good.

gVim fits perfectly with the evening color scheme :)

I hope this dark theming stuff improves with Ubuntu 8.10 when they ship a dark theme by default *g* - Apr 28 2008

I like this theme, especially with dark colors. Unfortunately, Eclipse is unuseable with it as all fields get black background and eclipse draws black text color.

Can you confirm this behavior? And is this the fault of Eclipse or is there something that can be done with the GTK theme?

Thanks a lot,
