I recently upgraded from LiNsta3 to Moomex, and while it seems to do the job well, I came across this version, and am wondering if it's worth putting on because it's newer.

I have been able to tweak it to look pretty much the same as the original Moomex theme, however, I am unsure of how to change the status bar, the toolbar, and a few other things to a lighter grey, as opposed to the dark one currently. Basically just as Moomex original is.

Does anybody know how?

Here's my userChrome.css solution:

#urlbar {
background-color: #ffffff !important;
color: #000000 !important;
}

Maybe there's a better way? It would be nice if we could make the address bar (and the search bar) white text on black background ;).

that's not the perfect way to do it. it actually introduces another bug that makes the drop down button white, which suppose to be dark.

Your solution doesn't work for me, I still had to add background-color: #fff !important; to #urlbar. It's probably because I set the colors in System -> Preferences -> Appearance -> Customize -> Colors -> Input boxes to white text on black background (and Firefox only picks up the text color d'oh).

I'm aware of that. I will think of a better way to fix this bug.

P.S. Thanks for your feedback

I just downloaded this and there's no Firefox fix in the archive. Maybe you forgot to put it in?

felix@the-machine:~$ ls -R .themes/Moomex-Ultimatum | grep css
felix@the-machine:~$
(no results)

I'm looking for a fix that will allow me to actually see what's highlighted in the address bar.
Very nice theme by the way, works very nice with BlendedSmall metacity and Oxygen Black icon themes.

Oops, my mistake. I did a quick update to include userChrome.css and userContent.css.

thanks for appointing that.

This icon is causing the panel to be to big 128 in height. Actually I liked that, though it obviously is a bug since the panel background isn't intended to look that way. Any way to change the panel background texture?

Also, I can't find the big icons you use for music etc on screenshot! I only have themn in 96, and that's to small..

First of all, I LOVE your theme! Nice :)
But the skype icon is smaller then the rest, so is there a way of either removing it or fixing it?

Also Banshee isn't looking it's best; the now playing text is black with dark grey background.

At last: Is there a way of getting the windows list to just show icons like Windows 7? That would be neat :)

It's really nice to look at or to browse some files but not being able to use Office renders it useless, sadly.

Hi all,

On my Hardy, I've some output in terminal due to the theme.

I post here to solve this :
(firefox:7332): Gtk-WARNING **: Error parsing gtk-icon-sizes string:
'panel-menu=24,24
panel=20,20
gtk-button=18,18
gtk-large-toolbar=24,24'

You just need to edit the file /home/username/.themes/Moomex-Ultimatum/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and replace '\n' by ':' on the line gtk-icon-sizes like that :
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=24,24:panel=20,20:gtk-button=18,18:gtk-large-toolbar=24,24"

;)

Thanks for your feedback.

There will be a new release soon with LOTS of features and bug fixes (Except for Firefox and OOo which have bugs I cannot resolve).

The new release will feature a FULL color scheme support ( you can even change the panel color )

Excellent theme m8!

Someone posted a yellow wallpaper which looks cool, but makes it hard for me to read my icons text.

I think the "Dark Oxygen" wallpaper coordinates better with this theme.

Maybe this got mentioned, but in Firefox (Swiftweasel, strictly speaking), the URL text is very very dark gray on the black background.

Other than that, DYNAMITE. By the way for anyone reading this, if you change the "input box" color to a muted gray and the "selected" color to a pastel blue, the theme becomes so easy on the eyes even with all the lights in the room off it's fantastic.

Also kudos for having the ONLY dark theme that doesn't totally botch Pidgin.

I don't know if you can help, but the background for the panels has been extrapolated to my firefox menu background... yet the firefox menu's still have black text. Other programs have regular grey menu backgrounds, and the file manager has a blue background for the menu (the actual drop downs are fine... just the BG before clicking). Is there something I can do to make the firefox menu blue too?

All menu style have a black background. How come the file manager has a blue one ?
and do you know that you can change the menu background by changing the tooltips colors through Appearances.

May I ask for a screenshot showing the firefox bug ?

There's a screenshot and more relevant information... I've combined a few themes - like I have some vista-like theme through emerald... but your theme is the base for the panels and apparently toolbars.
