Mesmerized is a dark-blue GTK theme for the GNOME desktop.
I really like the Aurora engine, however I don't like the inconsistent look of progressbars and treeviews headers. For that reason I made this theme based on Aurora-Midnight and Clearlooks GUMMY. I also used 2.0 of roundness as it is a lot faster than 6.0 (the default used by aurora midnight). The color scheme is based on the Obsidiana theme for KDE4.
I recommend using the Gnome Colors (Brave) Icon theme.
Both gtkrc and color scheme are named after the song of Tryad "Mesmerize" which is a cover of "Overreacting" by Brad Sucks (you can find them on Jamendo).
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".
