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;
}

Yes, I meant the workspace switchers. Maybe something in a lighter shade of gray for the active desktop?

Your theme is very good, I like it.
Could you do a version with rounded buttons? the square are not very elegant.

Thanks.

This looks awesome!

the only turn offs for me are buttons and
tabs.

Other than that, you have done a great theme! (I especially like the scroll and progress bars)

the tabs are great it's just they are in my
opinion to pixelated at the rounding point :) (minor detail I know)

In a theme as good as this, there is only minor
details to complain about.

Ok I know what you mean... The tabs are taken from the Blue-Junior GTK theme. I plan on changing them soon to look smoother.
