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 Cobble-gtk-theme.zip 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...

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.

okey, ah well, i noticed that there were just Some metacity themes that reacted weirdly. some actually gave the colors i expected. like lightblue. (regarding my 1st notice)

another thing i noticed, the "window select" applet, gets all orange. not light-gray like the rest of the panel. This goes for the "menubar" applet too.
(i dont know if you had that as intentions or not...)

Normally I have issues with pixmap based GTK2 themes:

1. They usually look like hell.
2. They're usually sluggish for menu scrolling in Firefox and bigger apps.

This theme is neither. This is by far one of the best themes I've seen in quite some time next to your gperfection2 and graphite suites. Excellent work.

Hi!

Always me, Lokheed.

Just a suggestion: why don't u do a version of your cobble metacty with the window title (is it the right name of it?) in the middle too, instead of the one left placed?
I would appreciate it!

Thanks!

Bye!

This is wonderful, Lokheed. I love all your work. A few questions about the screenshot:
What is the program with the title 'File Browser'?
Where did you get the icons and the programs that are in your taskbar? (The Mail notifiier? Power Monitor? CPU graph?)

Nautilus from GNOME

I've emerged the tango-icon theme, and most of my icons have been replaced.
At Jimmac's page, do I have to refresh and individually download every new set of random icons?
Sorry if I'm asking stupid questions. :/

See, here's the thing: take, for example, the battery monitor. With my toolbar at 22x22, instead of using 22x22 icons, GNOME is scaling the larger 32x32 one, which I don't want it doing. Is the fact that it's on the top toolbar making a difference?

With the risk of coming across like a real cluebie I must ask you one thing: What GTK2 engine does this theme use? Whenever I apply it a couple of colours change and that's all.

None. It doesnt require anything. Its a pixmap theme with its own "engine."

Hey this is just what I was looking for. Could you optimize the use of empty space in buttons and make them a little bit smaller? (= suggestion...) :)

Lokheed Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2006  Professional Interface Designer
Glad you like it. The white space on the buttons are a GTK thing. Something that has long bothered me as well. Its just built into the widgets and like you, I think is sad. If the buttons were slimmer and some elements of GTK were refined, it would look much more professional and slick. One thing QT has, is that professional look with the slimmer buttons. But GTK is more refined. Both still need work, but GTK could be really great. Its a shame that GUIs dont take advice from graphics people. When will the world learn that aesthetics are really rather important. I have been trying to bring beauty to Linux slowly and have made some impact, but there is still much work to be done :D

You forgot one thing. GTK+ was never ment to be a desktop powering library. Gimp Tool Kit+ was issued to this because of Gnome developers which really are in someways "interface nazis" like Torvalds flamed a while ago. I like gnome and it's simplicity but sometimes I just cannot work with it anymore, mostly because gnome doesn't have that feature X which I need more that anything else.

You have done a great job as one of those people who will make useful and beautiful gnome themes. And yes there is still much to be done. I hope that when gnome developers start moving from branch 2 to 3 there will be these changes to widget sizes and so on...

Of course someone could code a fix for the widgets but I don't think that possible in couple of next years... Gnome developers are just started to realize that their desktop is slow and buggy. Newest gnome 2.14 will be interesting release for a while...

I kind of like QT also. QT4 is a revolutionary and when KDE4 developers are able to start working with the new ideas made in kde-look.org kde4 brainstorm are a it might endanger gnome's superriority in bussiness area... KDE4 flat-silver is a neat theme, I hope it will make from mockups to real life... This is just a one example where graphics people are guiding developers. It's great thing. Vista's interface is made by graphic designers and OSX which started the whole GUI redesign competition is starting to look more and more neater in someways as Apple people tweak their OS all the time. OSX is opensource but in a different way than BSD or GNU are.

Graphics do make the difference in the world. :)

Thanks dude. No I have not 'tango'ed' gperfectionČ. The folder icons are from jakub's website. He is the one in fact that is remuxing the default gnome theme.

great theme!

I just have a few questions, what is the addres to jakub's site? what fonts are you using, and how did you chance the gnome foot, in nautilus, to that round circle?

the gnome foot, draws from 36x36/apps/. The two icons are gnome-spinner.png & gnome-spinner-rest.png. The default (gnome foot) draws from /usr/share/icons/hicolor. All my themes have the 36x36 category specifically for this reason, cause I hate the gnome foot.
