If i can make a critical: there's any feedback, like the button highlight when, I use the TAB key, so I'm compelled to use the mouse to press the buttons.

I'm actually having a bit of problems with getting this theme to work. I'm using gnome-2.14.2. When I try to install the theme using gnome-theme-manager I recive: "The file format is invalid"

It seems that all of the themes I got from [link] can't be installed on my system. If anyone is interested you could take a look at a thread I created on [link]: [link]

I've read the journal. Wouldn't it help if I had extracted using unzip, and after that made it to a .gz tarball? Well, I tried, and it made no difference.

I also tried putting the extracted directory in /usr/share/themes, among with the other themes. It doesn't work.

i too have this issue. i have unpacked the themes, placed them in the theme directory--no good. same with attempting to targz them after unzipping them--it doesn't recognize the format.

I found out what was wrong. It seems that cobble isn't a theme ment for theme manager.. Hmm, it's hard to explain what I mean, but extracting it with tar and putting it in the gnome theme directory makes it appear in the "Theme details" section in the gnome-theme-manager. That worked for me at least.. Sorry for the late response...

Love all your themes bro, What font are you using for folder names etc? Is that bitstream-vera? what family and size. Also where can i get that Nautilus background?

k, im out of questions. Love your style of work. keep it coming! :P

excellent work man!

just some creative criticism, try setting
bg[SELECTED] = "#797979"
or something like that, to give your metacity frame a gray-ish look. not just pitch-black.

In my opinion, its looks nicer, also you get to see when you roll over a "button" that it turns to black, and not just dissapears.

just a thought i had, trying out your theme for the first time just about now.
Looks excellent over all, just that little thing i thought about. :)

All limitations to the pixmap theme. I see the only way of correcting this is to actually code the theme in C; something I cannot do.
