I finished (really? No!
) the DemiDark version
, where the colors of the applications have the classic 'clear look' while all (really ALL) menus are in dark style.
some other links:shot_demi_001
I really like the flag/tab effect of the selected menu item (like <Visualizza
> in the image).
But you will need a minimum of customization if you use "transparent menus" with Compiz to Match the color.
> theme file already contains a section with a couple of directions (I use the menu to 90% transparency).
Have a look at the file's contents, I learned so initially, trying to change it!
Despite this isn't a typical "ALL-dark" theme, alike it suffers of color mismatch, when used with non-native Gtk+ applications that tries to replace it's own color scheme (such as OpenOffice / LibreOffice and others).
In these cases we adopt a stratagem by building a second theme with almost the same color scheme (except for dark foreground); and forcing the mischievous applications to use this more clear theme!
The modified theme can be found here: <gtkrc_clear
and this is the script/executable that runs LibreOffice: <soffice
> (instructions are inside).
For Sabayon users who like to customize any aspect and are always looking for ideas, I created the package with my graphics settings (includes the background you see here, the settings for wmii, icons, cursors, and other tricks): <Gglass_package.7z
Now I will try to complete the theme SuperDark already seen a few posts above ...
Then I will try the "pixmap" engine because I think I have a greater predilection for directly manipulating over images... or perhaps some other!
