I think this makes a perfect glossy black theme that's sleek and powerful.
This theme, like most other dark themes, goes best with a vibrant and colourful background which makes everything stand out all the more.
If you want a copy of my background or backgrounds I've made like that one leave a comment, and if I get enough comments about it I may upload them to gnome-look.
Hope you enjoy, feel free to post me ideas or changes you would like made to the theme as it is still a work in progress.
If you prefered an older version of the theme which has features that no longer exist I may be able to send you a legacy version.

Note: The toolbar I'm using is a modified version of the one that comes with the theme, it is tailored to my screen size and needs which is why I didn't include it, if anybody wants a version don't hesitate to ask.

Once downloaded extract the .zip file and install the .tar.gz file as you usually would a theme.

How to get transparency:

1) Open Compiz Config under System> Preferences> CompizConfig Settings Manager
2) Click "Opacity, Brightness and Saturation" to open it.
3) Under the "Window specific settings" add these three rules and values.

Tooltip | Menu | PopupMenu | DropdownMenu 80

(name=gimmie_applet) | (type=Dialog | ModalDialog) 85

utility | dialog 95

you may want to play arround with the settings to get them exactly as you like.

Big thanks to all the creators of the themes listed below for letting me use their graphics and coding, if not by actively giving me permission by giving their work a GPL license (woo, go freedom)

This theme was originally based on the coding and graphics of BlueSpcae II:

The buttons for the Metacity and Emerald themes is from this emerald theme:

The rest of the graphics for the Metacity and Emerald themes were slightly modified from these:

And of course not forgeting my favourite icon theme (so far :P) Azenis Icons:

I used the code for the text boxes from the UE 2.2 theme:

A FireFox theme which suits this style very well:

I used to use this icon theme but I've found a better one since then:


Fixed a bug that was brought to my attention.

now comes with a matching emerald theme with the close buttons as LaGaDesk intended.
moved hosting to my site.
changed the tooltip image
that's all, it's a pretty minor update.

Re-done the buttons
Changed the nautilus icons (backwards, forwards, stop, refresh)
Changed some of the code to darken the nautilus panel background
Made handles graphics.
changed the range throughs and sliders.
changed menu items.
a few other minor things too.

Changed the buttons of the metacity theme.
Slightly altered the tab BG images.
Changed the panel buttons, now slightly more friendly to small panels.
Started using Azenis Icons as the default theme.

A few minor changes to the progress bars and scrollbar ends.
Urm that's pretty much it.

Made some vast improvements to the shadows and frames
Changed the notebook_xXxX_flat.png images
Chnaged the slider things slightly
Although the changes are few they still make massive improvements to the theme.

Added a Metacity theme! (although i still recommend you use emerald)
cleaned up and changed the tool and menu bars

Changes from here on have been left out but can be found in full in the description and changelog in the zip.

Someone notified me that the screenlets manager in 9.10 had problems because i hadn't included all the arrow graphics. However it should now work.

Now I'd hate to conform to stereotypes here, but, as a geek in a community of geeks i feel there is only one question i can ask you in confidence. That question is fellow geeks: Kirk or Picard?
