my new Fluxbox theme


howdy fluxbox fans

For some reason i'm not too sure of, i've spent half of my sunday creating a fluxbox theme. It's a port of the Gtk+ Gorilla theme, which was the only good thing about gnome imho.

if anyone would likek to try it out, it's here:

and a screenshot here:

all thoughts gladly recieved.

Cheers

Nice work! Now flux matches my GKrellm (for which Gorilla was the only acceptable-looking theme). Had to copy the contents of ./pixmaps into the root Florilla folder to get them to work, though (and you're right, it looks horrid without the pixmaps :-)

Not sure yet; because of the pixmaps, it's a little less responsive than the simpler theme I'm using (which I made myself). But maybe

yeah, it does being to defy the original goals and stuff.... i'm still reallu suprised though how few pixmap theme's i can find.

unlike the number of Meg Ryan themes for some reason i'm sure i don't want to know...

Carlwill: Fluxbox themes are for Fluxbox. KDE and Gnome have their own themes.
