Description:

Blue-Joy is a combination of the Blue-Junior GTK theme, Azur GTK theme and the Slickness Metacity theme. I have made a lot of special modifications myself. The drop down menus, panel, check boxes, radio boxes, buttons and tabs are all custom designed for this theme.

The icon theme used in the desktop screen shot is "Elementary Icons".

Because this is a black theme it has some colored text bugs in Firefox 2
(Firefox 3 does not have this problem).

In Firefox, some pages have white background with white text,to fix this
go to (in Firefox) Edit>Preferences>>Content ,click on colors,
Uncheck the "Use system colors" check box
Then restart Firefox.

To have white text in the Firefox menubar you must modify userChrome.css
Add the following code to your userChrome.css file.
userChrome.css is located at: /home/{YOUR USERNAME}/.mozilla/firefox/{YOUR PROFILE ID}/chrome/userChrome.css

__________________________________
menubar > menu {
color: white !important;
}

menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"] {
color: white !important;
}

menulist:hover, menu:hover, menuitem:hover {
color: white !important;
}

This is one of the top themes I've ever known. I am only wondering if it is possible to have white paper background while using openoffice? Because writing on black with white letters disturbs my eyes. But still it is best ;)

is there any way to make this theme play nice with flock? i used the .css you posted for firefox but it doesn't seem to work for flock.
also is there a way to fix the button backgrounds for a vertical panel?
see my screenshot.

This theme of yours is improving A LOT!

I can't really understand the low download

Keep up the very good work!

love the theme but is there a way that i can use it without the black panels? the only thing that i don't care for is the button backgrounds. how to get rid of them?

As i had mentioned earlier, this issue is encountered on all Kore derived themes! For instance in nautilus, the groove is white as well when u use the List mode instead of icon mode! Same problem in Evolution as well! Here's the screenshot!

This is probably the best looking theme I have ever seen. Fantastic work, and thank you.

This is by far my favorite theme. Thanks so much for making this :)

Is there a chance you could make a version with the standard gnome foot instead of the ubuntu logo?

I'm using this theme now. It's ace! But there's a thing to report...

Have a look at this shot:

http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a319/Shakhtar9/bluejoylisten.png

You can see that the scrollbar grooves are white and the menubar graphic hasn't taken in this particular app (Listen).

Thought I should point it out.

maybe it's inherited from the kore theme! i saw the same issue with kore, and obviously with blue junior, since he based his theme on kore as well! u will also find the same problem in Evolution! Maybe it's a problem that appears only under List mode! i may be wrong!

Thats an interesting bug. Unfortunately I won't have time to try and fix it until later tomorrow. If any other applications are producing the same bug please let me know.

No worries, man. So far, it seems that only Listen is suffering with this problem.

BTW, I discovered something weird using Bittornado. When I use another theme the max upload rate is visible but not with your theme. Maybe it fixable? (included screenshot to show the difference)

Thanks for the help...I fixed the Bittornado bug! I also lightened the pager/workspace switcher as you requested. Please let me know if you find anything else that needs to be changed.

Thnx for fixing the bittornado bug :-)
What do you think about the lighter color for the desktop switcher? I think it's much better.

Report

I absolutely love this theme apart from a few minor things. The blue you used for highlighting doesn't match the blues you used for the scroll/progress bars, it's seems too bright in comparison and it really stands out. Another thing I noticed is that there is no visible color difference between the desktop switchers when I have multiple windows open on 2 or 3 desktops.

Thanks for the feedback. I dulled the highlight color a little bit. I don't think it should be to dark because its the highlight color. I'm not sure what you are referring to concerning the workspace switcher. Is it hard to differentiate the workspaces or the applications that are open?
