 Hidden notifications

 by razlock on: Jul 16 2012
Score 50%

I love this theme but when I am listening to music with rhythmbox I notice that notifications are partially hidden in the bottom ...

I have "solved" this by replacing the "9px" by a "2px" padding in the gnome-shell.css file, line 1209 (#notification).

I am using the Faenza icon theme, which also replace the default rhythmbox icon.

And thanks for this awesome theme !

Use an icon theme like Faeince Azure.

 Loving theme, one question though

 by stretchnz on: Sep 8 2012

Absolutely love the colours on this theme. Thank you!

I have one query though, which code in which file do I change to adjust the font colour that I see in Firefox drop down URL history ?
I love the light blue it has but unfortunately against the medium greyish backdrop I can not read it (strange colour on colour tolerance with my eyes).

If you can advise and maybe briefly also advise what else that particular change will affect I would be most grateful.

 Great theme, but....

 by rpgmaker on: Dec 17 2012

From what I could see is a great theme but sadly doesn't seem to work on ubuntu 12.10 (the theme wasn't available on the ppa for this version either). Review this screenshot: http://oi47.tinypic.com/33bzacj.jpg look at the bookmarks menu, the text area looks colorless, and this happens on all menus. I reviewed and I have the murrine and unico engines installed, don't know if this happens because you're using a different version.

Hi. I won't be updating the theme anymore. However, for the shell theme, you can install "gnome-shell-theme-elegance-colors" and use the preset "Matte".
