I like the over all look of it. Does it come with set icons for the Documents / Photos / Videos ? Most of the themes I've looked at don't default with that so I'm either stuck with trying to create my own (which I don't know how) or using ones that aren't appealing with the actual theme.

Because seriously? Do you read what folder you're opening if you're in your Home Directory or just look at the picture? ^_^'

I think this would be fun to install and use for when my windows friends come over and I have the buttons out of order and on the left side ><; They'll be so lost and won't be able to close what they are doing when I walk in on them. (they've caused some problems on my WinXP computer a few times from their browsing habits)

I'm not a dark theme lover but this is great.

This is by far the best dark theme i've used . I prefer it over the version 2 of slent night ;)

Just throwing in my two cents ... though you probably only want a penny if that for my thoughts.

You do have the prereqs for the SNv2 right? I've run into a graphical problem because I didn't have the missing content that isn't in the directory by default. =P

But yeah this one is pretty cool looking ><; I'm waiting to get a response on the icons it uses for home directory (docs, photos, videos, music... crap like that) before I bother to install it

hmm, i got problemento, when I choose Silent Night-Dark at Appearance Preference, it said 'This theme will not look as intended because the require GTK + theme 'Silent Night-dark' is not installed'. And also when I choose Silent Night-Light at Appearance Preference, it said 'This theme will not look as intended because required icon theme 'Smokikon_v09' is not installed.'

Any idea?

Nothing specially,you just need to install suggested icon theme if you want.You can find it on gnome-look.org.

why i haven´t seen it before? :(
nale12's avatar
I almost at the end of the second edition.I will upload it soon.I meant on light version.Dark version I already uploaded.
narf41's avatar

i like it, but this one is a little bit better in my opinion :)

Just 3 things to say :

- This is a gorgeous theme !!!
- there is a very bad bug when you use he gimp (rules are unusable)
- It's good only for compiz users (I can't use compiz, so... menus look really flat, with compiz it's ok but without, argh!)

Please, don't stop it ! This is really awesome ! :)
nale12's avatar
No need to use compiz,metacity also have composite effects,you must turn it on.Go applications-system tools-configuration editor-apps-metacity-general and check compositing_manager.Gimp bug I fixed and i will upload fixed version soon as possible(though it is not theme bug,its gtk bug).

Oh ok... my graphic card does not allow compositing with dual monitor (this is a 9800 GX2, using 2 GPUs, one screen per GPU) and it does not allow Compiz in dual monitor neither.

I think I'll change this fucking stupid card for less powerful...
