Mira by sen7 Mira by sen7
:: Concept ::
This time I wanted to create a darker theme with a pixmap bg. Further all control-elements (buttons, scrollbars... etc) should be transparent.
To create this overlay effect and getting it displayed correctly wasn't as easy as I thought it would be and this may cause problems. This makes the theme pretty experimental as well... :)

:: Contents ::
+ 2xgtk
+ 2xmetacity
+ xfwm4
+ 2xemerald
+ gdm
+ userContent.css (Firefox3)
+ NowPlaying screenlet theme

:: GDM ::
If you have a widescreen monitor, please rename the file "bg-wide.png" to "bg.png" in the gdm-theme directory.

Metacity
Because metacity resizes the titlebar if the title font is too big, I recommend to use the font "snap" as window title font. With other fonts try sizes around 7 and 8.

:: Note ::
To enjoy the theme in all it's sexyness be sure to copy the userContent.css to your firefox profile.
If you find any bugs please let me know (if you have a minute a screenhot would be much appreciated).
The pattern for the bg is from theinspirationgallery.com (modified of course).

:: Screenshot ::
The wallpaper (also used as bg for the gdm-theme) is from mandolux.com (slightly modified by me). Thx again Mando for letting me use it!
Icons: Smokikon by magnussuther [link]
Conky: [link]
Font: Snap (artwiz)

:: Changelog v0.5 ::
+ fixed the "This theme will not look as intended..." error
+ new expander style
+ widescreen gdm-bg

:: Changelog v0.4 ::
+ many improvements of the gtk-theme
+ new gtk version with tool- and menubar (Mirav2)
+ new Emerald and Metacity (Mirav2)

Really nice theme! If I ever get round to building another Arch Linux build again I'm gonna use this theme! So very clean and simple! ^_^

hey that's me again sorry. when i use [lxappearance] to change icons theme to Smokikon, it's show me "(lxappearance:20256): Pango-WARNING **: failed to choose a font, expect ugly output. engine-type='PangoRenderFc', script='common'" . Is that means that I have no any fonts for that?

I love this theme but the only thing keeping me from using it is the deal with GTK3 apps. If you could make a port for us XFCE users that have those apps that don't theme well, we would love you eternally.

This is the theme that really made me fall in love with Linux. If it could be updated for GTK 3 somehow, I'd die of joy. Then again, it seems you haven't been very active on dA for a while. Still, good memories here.

Very elegant setup. I really like that Conky too. I am probably going to use it sometime(modified). Nice work! :)

Great theme, love it for pidgin. So hard to find good dark themes, even though it's much better on your eyes.
