    New IceWM ThinBlack theme

    I originally tried to make this in fluxbox, but it just didn't look as nice, IceWM has much better pixmap support, most themes with a consistent title bar could easily be ported to it.

    Credit goes to IYY because I used his IceVista theme as a base.

    Enjoy!


    Also, here's the Emerald equivalent if anyone wants:

    Edit 1: -Fixed the taskbar, shouldn't go weird anymore
    -Made selected windows highlight
    -Made Icon clearer

    Edit 2: -Fixed the button (Now it's more or less centered)
    Edit 3: I realized the font was way too big on the title, made it smaller+arial

    Edit 4: See last post
    Edit 5: Removed the shininess, was ugly.

    That is by far the coolest IceWm theme I've ever seen! Thank you so much for that. Most IceWM themes look like crap, but yours is on par with a regular Gnome or KDE theme!

    The one thing I do have a gripe with is the Ubuntu logo--it looks a little fuzzy. I'd say everything else in the theme is a 10 out of 10, and the Ubuntu logo looks like a 6 out of 10. Is that just limitation of needing to use .xpm as an image format?

    Ahh man, no fluxbox, you know a good black theme is hard to find. I finally went with blacklight, but changed the hot pink color to red.

    Hey, the toolbar for this theme (or at least just the icons on it) is from my IceVista theme. Looks very cool! I think I'll start using this theme.

    But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him.

    Lol, I knew I forgot something, should've credited @_@.
    I used your IceVista theme as a base, just redid all of the pixmaps and edited the default.theme a bit.

    @kerry_s fluxbox doesn't support rounded corners very well, although it should be very easy to make an approximate port.

    @mordox I don't know how to make metacity themes, sorry. However, you can change your window manager to icewm in gnome and use this theme.

    aysiu: I don't understand why a lot of the themes for IceWM suck, it has really good pixmap support and most metacity themes you should be able to port to it by just using a screenshot and basic knowledge of gimp, doesn't take longer than an hour. I'm going to do some more conservative gnome ports in the future.

    I mean, look at the guides for Metacity themes and IceWM themes, they're pretty much the same!

    Theme is now updated.

    Re: New IceWM Thin Black theme

    I have a question for you, Albi.

    Is there an easy way to make the system tray area black? Or is that not controlled by the theme?

    I'll keep searching for the answers in the meantime.

    I believe it's controlled by your GTK2 theme.

    Is it? I'll play around with my GTK themes and see what I can do. Thanks for the tip.
