IMO i think the background GTK colour is a bit too brown, i would brighten it up a bit and add more orange to it, the colour you used for the scroll bar might work.

trademark91,

Do you mind sharing you fluxbox theme file for that theme? If you posted it, I can't seem to find it. Looks really good.

Hmm, it seems something went wrong when you tried to zip the file. I get the following error when trying to untar:
Code:
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I'm still getting the same error! Have you tried downloading the same file from the upload file and tried to untar it? I'm wondering if it's getting corrupted when it's uploaded.

I just downloaded that file with Firefox 6.0.2 on Slackware 13.37 (64 bit, no multilib) and it extracted fine. I would assume that the error is on your side, stormtracknole.

Darn, ok. I have used the following to commands to untar,
Code:
tar xzf

and

gunzip
Still get an error. Am I missing something? I am using a proxy as a go between. Maybe that is what is causing the error.

I simply extracted it with
Code:
tar -xf grayblack.tar.gz
The md5sum of the downloaded archive is
Code:
2e959fd6163cb7694d6fbbdc395c8ed5
, so you can test if your download is corrupted.

That is what I was using. It is most likely getting corrupted. I'll try it when I get home from work and will turn off the proxy to see if that is the cause.
