Theme making is a difficult task! I started building on the default \'\'Ambiance\'\" theme and found out there was problems with it. Now due to learning some more things, I have discovered some cures for it and added some extra things to produce a theme that is not only stunning to look at but works like a charm and loads quickly. So far as I have multiple desktops, works well on LXDE, XFCE, Ubuntu and of course built and tested on Gnome 3.8. Once again also is themed to what I refer as \'\"The Stoplight Motif\'\" . What is meant by that term is click on a program or box and goes green or turns from amber to red. \"Black Beauty\" is very unique in aspects as also there are added text changes. There are 3 colors for text. Yellow, Red and Light Blue. On Chrome a beautiful Light blue \'\"Light Effect\'\" to make it appear as if there is a flourescent light. Same effect appears on Gnome Tweak, Brasero, Ubuntu Error messages, and Nautilus. Nautilus now works correctly to the stoplight effect as forward and back buttons are on amber until clicked then turn green. All changes will be applied to past themes and I also offer my apologies for those themes as, they are not in total working order as far as the stoplight effect is concerned. They also contain small errors.



Nautilus.rc - tossed as conflicts with Nautilus.css and some lines in gtk-widgets.css which prevented red bar from appearing while \"inactive\"
Previous gtkrc I was using had some errors and was replaced with an older sheet coded properly. Chromium.rc is now coded to that sheet and quite properly! Is also the only rc file left in gtk-2.0.

Besides spacing numbers you will not find @000000; numbers anywhere! Numbers removed and replaced with proper and some unique terms to more accurately describe their position. A user can modify the entire theme from gtkrc, gtk-main.css and the two metacity xml sheets. This provides a simpler and quick change to those wishing to provide themselves with even more unique looks!

Previously I made a poor color selection on gedit! Red text on a red background quite an amatuer mistake. Now it is colored properly as when it is initiated appears amber with dark text. When window is inactive is red and of course after engaging the replace all button it goes green!

There are no more spaces where they do not belong! No more annoying white when selecting theme on Gnome Tweak or any of the other buttons. This was accomplished through the better gtkrc and removing widget-borders.css

Extra assets in gtk-3.0 provides the more experienced users to switch to those they prefer. Personally, I think the best are used, but I enjoy giving options!

I really hope everyone will enjoy this theme as has taken me over a week to get it to work so nicely! I beg and plead with all \"Spammers\" to please find somewhere else to sell! I am just trying to help others get the themes they enjoy. Even though I am practically penniless, I just want to provide something nice for others and do not ask a penny for it! Many hours have been spent to create this theme that would work as planned and not conflict with anything! Comments good or bad are welcome as I just want to hear what you want!

Please delete metacity-theme-3.xml in the metacity-1 folder of this theme. Not doing so will show double text on the regular Gnome Desktop. A future version of this theme will no longer contain that file! Has been tested on all desktops XFCE, LXDE, Gnome's 3 and Ubuntu desktop with no problems, so that file needs to be deleted so it will not cause double text on Gnome or Gnome Classic. This does not occur on any other desktop but those 2. Thanks for downloading and sorry for any problems or hassles or problems from it!!!
