thanks! - Sep 08 2009
last 2 links lead to the "mediafire" and "FileFactory": if one is down - try the other. both works here btw. - Sep 08 2009
o'k, the content is uploaded to the FileFactory with hope to eliminate any similar issues.

thank you for your patience and attention! - Sep 06 2009

all links are fine here. they work even with enabled "AdBlock"+"NoScript". try this:

1) click on "(GANT Afterlife - another link :))" button
2) wait until the "mediafire" site is loaded
3) look at the page and notice "Click here to start download.." text right to the download icon. click on that text.
4) things should work.

please don't hesitate to bother me here or via e-mail.

hi, i slightly modified this nice theme to eliminate "white" bg stuff with black text.

now text should be always "white" and bg - dark.

welcome to add it as an option for all :) - Mar 05 2009

here's a 'similar' work:

the latest is this one:

customization with the latest 'edje_editor' is easy. just look at the 'Colors' - all theme is based on color_classes. - Dec 03 2008
Just take a look at the parts named "top_left_corner"; "top_titlebar"; "top_right_corner"; (lines 267 - 396) and there's some inserts in 'programs' section, which allow parts change it's state. By the way you could install meld:

and use it to see any diffs between files. It's a handy tool. - Mar 26 2008

one friend of mine also wanted to build BeOS-like theme, so I modified slightly default_border.edc:

It's just a rude example (sorry, even without comments), but may be for someone it'll be useful.

I tried to fix/minimize the minimum allowed size for a window with default borders - but failed (no brain - only rail). Major stuff is an image.border: LEFT RIGHT UP DOWN, which prevent wrong scaling and allow safe parts joins. It's clear that there's some work left to gain 100% Be look'n'feel.

Well, it's too old to run as it should. Yep, it could be downloaded and even used, but.... It needs some care and attention to get back to life.

Anyway, thanks for your attention and brilliant work! - Jun 20 2008
Man! Your balls are fucking awesome ones! Are you sure that I need to press 'bad'? You're the Boss, but you work is damn good!

PLease, beg your pardon for my stupidity, but can you glimpse at:

Is it possible to recreate this one?

>> I can tell that you have never tried to make a e17 theme...


and wtf is this all about?

>> the round corners are a TOUGH task (so far).
Getting them in the titlebar is a pretty big hack...and, at the moment... nearly impossible for other parts.

LOL!!! ROFL! wanna bet? - Apr 19 2008
Better than before.

Could you please also consider implementation of a 'round corners' into 'menu' ('windows menu', 'popups', etc.) and adjustment of overlapping blue selection in configuration menu (there're only a couple of pixels actually 'overlapped', but...)?

And why not to use custom fonts?

Anyway your results are quite neat and eye-friendly. Good job! - Apr 02 2008
Ok. Please note that it's only my IMHO. I'm always running current-cvs of E, some things could behave a bit different in your distro.

First of all - it's great that you're not trying to blind-copy Mac OS look, but rather develop something different.

Take a look at the window 'minimize' buttot (default border style) and overall look of window buttons (close, minimize and maximize) for all theme-provided border styles. They're not function neither look properly in E-cvs (examples):

Improve 'rubberhand' selection tool.

As told before - make scrollbars in EFM similar with the one in configuration dialogs. Improve'em:
Increase minimum allowed height and width for dragbars. Consider to fix a 'blindspot' between scrollbars:

Improve the look of a 'winselector' and 'run command' windows/modules.

Pay attention to gadman popup section.

Include customization for a most-used modules, customize standard 'cpufreq' and so on...

Get rid of Vera* fonts. Use DejaVu instead (it's not the point, because a lot of things could be configured via text classes, but when you get faked 'squares' instead of native letters "out from the box"... you know...)

Replace e17_slider_bt* with the ones used in scrollframes and make'em looking similar... Or vice-versa, up to you.

Customize the toolbar.

How about to make a round upper corners in menu (like they're in window borders)?

Don't hesitate to bother me in case of any questions :). All things I wrote above is my IMHO. "Listen to you heart..." ('Roxette') and just consider to make less but outperform in quality.

E - ROCKS, "All others - <consored> shit!..." (Guns'n'Roses) - Mar 29 2008

please beg my pardon for my words, but, despite that at the first glimpse this theme looks a WAY better than ex-Black, but...

There's quite a lot of things, wich might be improved: from the strange behaviour of minimize button on mouse,in -> mouse,over till the scrollframes in EFM and bunch of other minor (and not so minor) things...

If you're interested - I'll list all components, which should be settled.

If not - my congratulations with yet another theme....

My Best Regards,

I made custom controls just after module was released in E-cvs. Looks like the behavior of a popup section changed since (imho - may be because author decided to put controls on shelf instead of popup).

I wrote a letter to the author to help me find a proper way of using mpdule module (because I even can't resize it to get access to all controls or just to increase the length of displayed text).

Just didn't notice this due to usage of Emphasis or Gmpc (gtk theme - Aurora) :))).

My Best Regards,
sda - Mar 27 2008
I'd highly appreciate any bug-report or just point me to any part of the theme which require improvements.

Thanks. - Mar 24 2008
Guys! Need your help... Please take a look at the new border 'shaped_v1' and tell me if it's o'k to adjust all others in the way like this one change it's color depending on the state of the window.

Huge THANKS! - Mar 18 2008

Is it better now? :)

(just try to make the same borders and don't forget bout damn shading...) - Jan 18 2008
imo - we don't.

because no one else have such issues and I just recompiled E on OpenBSD - theme runs flawlessly. - Dec 18 2007
This theme is for current Enlightenment-CVS build only. If Vendor of Your distro ships outdated packages - ping Vendor :). For example I'm unable to use most of the themes represented here because I'm using E-cvs :). Please try to install some of the latest themes from

If they'll run fine - tell me your distro name and version of E installed.

Thanks! - Dec 18 2007
could you please explain what do you mean: "doesn't work for E17?" yes, window borders doesn't change color to indicate active/passive state - it's in TODO list and will be implemented sooner or later. but I prefer to make such modification after E17 release, because it's quite "huge" in terms of "coding". all E17 menus are working and moreover, I created custom border to reflect E16 iconbox style. "lower" button now acts as "close" and "kill" button gone to the window border menu. if you mean that buttons in menu are not "highlighted" as it was before - the reason is only because I have only few "highlighted" buttons in E16, but E17 got much more of them. E17 is a bit different from E16, please treat my efforts as "port" but not as 100% copy. If you miss some functions and wish them to be implemented - just mail me or post you request here.

just get the E17 cvs and make

rm -rf ~/.e - Jan 18 2008

take a look at default_gadman.edc (popup section) for example in my 23Oz - it's far away from a Rocket Science - there shouldn't be any issue. gadman popup affects all modules popus (afaik as for now) - there'll be no need to customize background image (but size really matters, isn't it ?:)) for each separate module popup. also quite nice gadman popup is arranged in Victor's "darkness" theme.

good luck... - Dec 11 2007

please beg my pardon, but IMHO - some attention at least to gadman popup and efm toolbar is needed...

theme is great - lightweight, fast and distinct! - Dec 11 2007

anyway theme is just great!
