Description:

The idea for this theme appeared after I started modifying the Aurora Aqua theme for personal use. Then I realised I wanted to change many other things in the code of the theme, added some details, used other engines... And when I noticed what I was doing, I had a new theme in my hands. So here it is. The Glow GTK theme is mainly based in Aurora, but it also requires the Clearlooks engine to work. Please let me know of any suggestion, critic, bug or whatever you wish to say. I hope you enjoy this new Glow.

Glow is actually a set of several themes, with 8 variations: Cinder (grey); Fire (red); Flower (pink); Grass (green); Ice (silver blue); Lava (darker orange); Sand (orange); and Water (blue). Each of these variations has two designs, light and dark. I'm still trying to test if especially the dark versions work well in all apps. The usual individual tricks you know from other dark themes may still apply. Let me know how it can be improved.

NOTE
If you're using the GNOME panel, please pick the pixmap I'm providing for the panels as their background, on the panel properties, if you want your inactive buttons on the tasklist to become invisible. The Xfce users have an easy to enable similar function at the Xfce4-panel's tasklist properties.

If you want to replace the panel's background with another pixmap or with a transparency, please comment the correspondent line in the Panel.rc file, using a hash sign, like this:

#bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "panel.png"

Important:
This theme is not a finished, definitive work. As always, there might be some aspects to change and improve. Therefore, and in the spirit of what was said above in this description, if you feel you have to vote this theme down, please let me know why, in order that we can work on this theme in a constructive way. Thanks in advance.

Also many thanks to ochosi and islington for the window decoration themes they created. The links to their work are now being provided below. Thanks to Ayoli for once more helping me out with the theme's code.

On the screenshots, I'm using the Eikon icon theme, which is a personal icon collection with several works found across the Web that I've been maintaining for myself, and that after several requires I decided to share in non-official releases.

To get the most recent updates to Eikon, now on its second generation, please check this website: http://drop.io/fmrbpensador

I've been looking into the widget problem and found out that using Opera looks better :) I'm using your theme now :D

hi, just wanted to say that the different color-versions are simply amazing!

(i finally decided to post my xfwm4-theme, even though it's far from perfect. it seems that quite a few people appreciate your themes, so i thought it might be useful to some of them.)

I use the blended metacity theme here, it goes well with basically any theme cuase it literally 'blends' in with the window.

I liked this theme before, but now its even better with the different color variations. Thanks !
