A dark grey colourscheme for the Clearlooks engine.
NOTE: This theme is designed to work with the original (and best) Clearlooks engine, in other words if your system has the shiny "Clearlooks 2" installed then this theme will look awful. This is not my fault, it is the fault of whoever merged 2 different themes under the same name rather than keeping them seperate. For reference Ubuntu Dapper uses Clearlooks 1, but Ubuntu Edgy uses Clearlooks 2. To get Clearlooks 1 on Edgy I downloaded the source for Dapper's gtk2-engines from packages.ubuntu.com, compiled it into a package with checkinstall then fiddled with the control file to stop it getting overwritten by updates. Please comment if you would like me to explain this on the Ubuntu help wiki and put a link here. I only use Ubuntu, so haven't messed around with any other distros' systems.
GNOME is an international effort to build a complete desktop environment—the graphical user interface which sits on top of a computer operating system—entirely from free software. This goal includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs which manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management.
GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably Linux, and as part of Java Desktop System in Solaris.
The name originally stood for GNU Network Object Model Environment, though this acronym is deprecated. The GNOME project puts heavy emphasis on simplicity, usability, and making things “just work”.
