How things? Me been busy as crazy with work and being a father now.
Hey came across your new thread here. I noticed in your Mac4Lin v1.0 RC release that the FF3 themes were older ones than the last ones I worked on. I'm sure I sent the newer versions... but hey no biggy. Its still the greated most complete theme for ubuntu out there. But I will have to send you through the last version I worked on v1.03. I just upgraded to Intrepid Ibex and seems to all work fine except some of the few bugs I was previously working on. But the scroll bars seem to work now.
I shall email them through to you. Unfortunately things are still very busy. Especially work at the mo. About to install two new systems that I currently work on (DNA blood screening). 2 machine is already a full time Job! Jeez man... killing me. But if and when I do make more progress I shall send them through to ya!
Huh! well loks like the new version of FF3.0.3 fixes some of my bugs (i thought v3.0.1 was a fix by mozilla).
Also wanted to mention that I too see the engine error message for the theme on Intrepid. But the theme seems to work ok anyways. Just the icons again. The folder shortcuts on the Places menu have the default crappy icons, not the Mac4Lin icons. I noticed the appearance program icon is default as well. Why o why do they need to keep changing the icon naming conventions????? Drive me nuts!
DrP: I can't get the FF themes to work. It says they are not compitable with FF 3.0.3, or that the install script can't be found... That the folders in the places menu has the default GNOME icons has nothing to do with Mac4Lin. It is like that in all themes... GNOME or Ubuntu bug?
Infrared dude: Well yea, I think I tried that some days ago, but found out that then I had to create a new folder for them with it's own setting in index.theme and stuff. I'm too lazy for that right now. Will look into that later.

I've put together a rough GTK theme using the controls from Unity but everything else from Mac4Lin. I'm trying to decide if I want to take the time to resize the offending icons and try to get the controls working properly. It looks like theme devs are always changing things that bork third-party themes. Mozilla does it all the time and I've seen several Firefox themers who have decided to just not update their themes anymore. Some of them lost hair when the devs made changes to the theme structure late in the dev cycle that generated bugs that they said wouldn't even be fixed until Firefox 3 came out. The devs' response to the new bugs? "We've got too many other things to deal with. You'll just have to wait for Firefox 3.0.1 (or so) for us to fix them." (paraphrased)

One frustrating thing is that the devs change the semantics without any reason. I mean, I've dealt with so many changes in GNOME with every release that I'm kind of frustrated now. For no reason I haf to do double the work to support 2 versions of GNOME. And if I wish to make the icon theme universal then I guess it will be no less than 100mb in size! Names change, paths change everything changes for no good reason.
OIC. Cool, cool.
Well here were the last version FF3 themes I was working on. v1.0.3
Very clean now (on my system at least) however the vert & horiz scrollbar backgrounds not shaded to give a true concaved depth like your theme. That was where I was up to.
Probably no need for them now has Hardin is now looking at the FF3 theming. No biggy. I just wanted to contribute to this awesome theme!
If anybody know hows to apply a background image and stretch it that would be great! I think I could apply an image but not stretch it to the length of the scrollbar determined by the window width and height.
Cheers to all!
Thanks a lot Dr.P. Your contribution is much appreciated. I hope together we are able to fix the themes and include it in the final Mac4Lin package.
Hey, great work on the RC 1! I really like the whole OS X look. A quick - I hope - question. I've got the wireless network icon from Mac4Lin 0.2 and I want to replace the network manager tray icon with it. I've tried even replacing the default gnome icons but it doesn't change. Could anyone tell me how to do this? I'm using Intrepid. Thanks!
