A bit overwhelmed by the DD feature from yesterday, I'm used to my pieces getting one or two comments and maybe a fav if i'm lucky. lol.
Thanks to everyone that's commented, good or bad, and thanks for all the favourites.

Black, but not really.

Built upon the themes

I wanted something that wasn't so bright, and better highlighted what it was your mouse was moving over.

Thanks to Cwiiis for finding so many bugs that I would never have noticed.

You must replace the underscore with a period in the file name so Gnome Themes can recognize it. I don't know why DevArt changes it.

-Fixed text colour on progress bars.
-Added more prelight effects to various buttons.
-Fixed text colour on nautilus location buttons.
-Fixed text colour on combo-boxes/combo-menus.
-Edited various images.

Still to do...
-Fix Dropdown issues in Evolution and others...

For days now I've been looking for a dark theme that I could look at for more than 2 minutes without getting annoyed. This is the winner! The contrast works perfectly, and isn't overly bright or dark in any one place. I especially love the textured panels. Awesome job.

Nice font, what is its name?

I installed Ubuntu recently. This theme looks good but doesn't work with it, sadly. Keeps saying "Invalid format".

Extract until you see the black folder. Then copy that into you ~/.themes folder. You can find it in your home directory and then pressing ctrl+h. On edgy I seem to be having issues with gtk and the panels aren't showing up right though. Looks like it reverts to gtk1 styles
