Developer comments

As the name implies, I've changed the menus to a light colour, which I find easier to read. I've only modified three of the many Shiki colours- Brave (blue), Dust (brown) and illustrious (pink). The themes require the Gnome-Colors icons, also by Victor C.

I've used some code from the BSM Simple 0.8 theme by Bruno Schmidt Marques.

Basically all credit goes to the original authors of theses themes- I've just modified the colour scheme slightly.

This theme requires Murrine to render the panels properly- but only an old version- it'll work on Debian Lenny.

Please note that having light menus means that older versions of Firefox and Open Office do not display menus correctly- text is dark on a dark background. This is a bug in these programs not this theme. Debian users will be affected in Firefox and Open Office in Lenny and in Firefox in Squeeze. The problem in Firefox is fixed in 3.6 which Lenny and Squeeze users can get from the Debian Mozilla Team repository. The problem in OpenOffice in Lenny is fixed by upgrading to the version 3.2 in backports.

How to install?

· Right click on your desktop and select Change Desktop Background
· Click on the first tab: Theme
· Drag and drop the theme's archive in the Appearance Preferences window.
· If everything is OK, you will receive a confirmation message and you can activate the theme just by clicking on it.

About GNOME:

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”.
