Divinorum is a good looking dark GTK theme for GNOME.
In gaim/pidgin chat window there is black text on black background...
To fix this create a file named "gtkrc-2.0" in .purple dir in your home and put the following in it:
base[NORMAL] = "#292B29"
class "GtkWidget" style "Custom"
Open Office 2
To get a white document background color instead of black, go to:
Tools > Options > OpenOffice.org > Appearance > Custom Colors > Document background
For dark themes Open Office 2 uses a high contrast icon theme (due to automatic icon settings). If you don't like this, do the following:
1. Open "Tools -> Options dialog -> OpenOffice.org -> View"
2. Change the icon theme from automatic/null to a different one.
If you are using Ubuntu and buttons look wierd, it's necessary to install the package "gtk2-engines-pixbuf". Type in a terminal:
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
The same is valid for all the themes based on the engine "pixmap".
You need to specify the background image for the panel(s) manually.
Right-click the panel and choose:
Properties > Background > Background image
and browse to /home/username/.themes/Divinorum/gtk-2.0/Panel.
Choose the panel-bg.png.
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".
