Carbonit

GTK2 Themes by roberTO21 66 comments

Awesome theme, I'm still using Beryl 0.1.4 and by renaming the Carbonit.cgwdtheme file to Carbonit.emerald, I was able to import the theme to Emerald Theme Manager and use it. There doesn't seem to be any problems with it, except for a very tiny black line underneath the "Shade Window" button on the top right in the active window. The pulsing and everything else also works just fine. It took me a while to figure out I could just rename the file, so maybe just renaming it in the package would save others some time too :) Thanks for the great work, it's fantastic. - Mar 18 2007
Really great theme, but as so many have pointed out, in Firefox, Thunderbird, and OpenOffice.org (2.1), the menubar as well as the menu items are black, so they can't be read.

In Firefox and Thunderbird, using another theme changes the menubar colour, so that's a temporary workaround.

Is there any configuration file or any settings for OOo that would allow the menubar text colour to be modified? Has anybody found a solution to this? Is it even possible to modify the Linsta theme to address this issue, or are dark themes basically doomed to have this problem in Gnome /w GTK2? - Mar 15 2007
Metallic Kicker Backgrounds

Kicker Panel by sabrex 3 comments

I too think a metallic look would suit KDE very well. I don't think the entire default look should be metallic, but the kicker and child panels do look quite good in a metallic form.

The problem is that metallic and transparency don't go together at all when it comes to the kicker. Since this feature was added to KDE3 (kicker transparency), it's been the craze :) I personally prefer a more solid look to some things. The menus should be transparent, but the kicker itself needs to feel more solid. Just my personal perference, which is what linux is all about. - Jul 13 2002
Metallic Kicker Backgrounds

Kicker Panel by sabrex 3 comments

I just wanted to point out that there were a few things I noticed when I was doing these gradients.

First of all, the kicker does not support alpha-blended PNG transparency. What I WAS hoping to do was to just make a single gradient that would then add the metallic effect to any kicker background color. This is currently not possible.

The second problem is that the background image chosen for the kicker does not get applied to the child panels like the one on the top of the screen in the screenshots.

Hopefully these two issues will be addressed soon ... - Jul 13 2002

keramik style + translucent kicker

KDE 3.x Window Decorations by KrAzY 131 comments

I have the same problems. When I close Konqueror or the Control Center, I get the SIGSEGV crash.

The only way to stop that from happening is to switch to another style (even though I can keep the same keramik decorations). I can enable menu transparency with the highcolor style and that doesn't cause any crash, so it's not the menu translucency that's the issue.

Anybody figure out why this is happening? I also installed this same style on Redhat 7.3 and it works great without any crashes (I had to do #export `KDEDIR=/usr/` ) but it works great.

Any solutions to the Slackware 8.1 prob? - Jun 30 2002

KDE Plasma Screenshots by Josema 15 comments

What font are you using for the menus? It looks very nice and I don't think it's the truetype Verdana, Tahoma, Arial, or TrebuchetMS from Windows. Thanks. - Jun 29 2002
[Keramik] Transparent Kicker (TARBALL)

KDE 3.0-3.4 Themes by dcpark 86 comments

I was wondering that myself. If keramik is using alpha blending for window decorations, then it should be possible to have an alpha blended border around every single window which would create the shadow effect.

Does keramik actually use alpha-blended window decorations? I've looked at the top-right and top-left edges and can't decide for sure if it's just on/off transprancy or alpha-blended transprancy. Anyone happen to know? - Jun 27 2002
