Back to the pixmap/pixbuf engine for this one. The dark one is my first complete dark theme for GTK, so it may have some bugs.
Metacity and emerald themes included.
Wallpaper is from KDE4.2 - [link] "Start icon" from an icon set called Neon: [link] (not made by me). Font is Futura MdCn BT.
Updates 1.01 - Made some text colors in the dark theme brighter. - Changed the bg color on tooltips. - Fixed the Gimp rulers by using the murrine engine.

All my Visual Styles and Skins are "open source". That means you can make modifications and ports as long as you submit it with the same Creative Commons License I use, and a link back to the original work too. No need to ask for permission.
Icons are XubuntuStudio from xfce-look.org Font is AvantGarde LT Medium.
To use the start-here.png icon you'll need to check your icon theme. It should be located in /home/username/.icons/ (Press ctrl+h in your file manager to view hidden folders.) If you don't have the .icons folder you can create one and put your icon sets there. (This may however be different if you use any other dist than Debian/Ubuntu. If so, then open gconf editor and select to use a custom icon for the applications menu.)
Go to /.icons/your icon theme/scalable/places/ and see if you have a start-here.svg icon. If you have one, make a backup of it and remove the original. Now go to (or create) the 48x48/places/ folder and make a backup of the start-here.png icon (if any). Then put the start-here icon from Kemikal in that folder. Open a terminal and write killall gnome-panel to refresh the panels.
