    dark theme for xfce

    if you have not noticed, this is my ubuntu master thesis....

    check it out and share it with your friends =)

    i found this "aud-Default" theme on my system and sort of had to reverse engineer where it came from...

    alt + f2

    gnome-terminal

    run

    then if you dont have audacious drop this block of code

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install audacious
    then link the system theme up

    Code:
    cd /usr/share/themes
    sudo cp -rf /usr/share/audacious/Skins/Default/ ./aud-Default
    then

    alt + f2

    xfce4-appearance-settings

    run

    then select "aud-Default" for a dark xfce theme

    (then add PPA to make audacious audacious 3, it uses gtk3 and breaks this theme from audacious 2)

    i just found out my laptop's volume keys DO work, but only under gnome... (there are bindings for laptop play pause forward backward keys / remotes in the audacious 3 ppa and possibly 2... general plugins global hotkeys) this looks reassuring though ill be back if it does not work out. i need my viewing experience heavy metal black, its easy on the eyes.

    in the theme dialogs for gnome click "customize" the default theme, and aud-Default should show up as an option and cross over its death metal black to gnome i find my mac keyboards volume keys also function correctly now too

    i guess ill throw in some voodoo pictures here....
