GTK2 theme based on VistaBut theme from roberTO21 (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=32227).
All the thanks go to roberTO21

The best metacity themes that match this gtk theme are LiNsta Black Flat, LiNsta Black Plastic, LiNsta Black Plastic & Alu, and LiNsta Silver Plastic.

I changed small things in its theme :
-the theme is clearer;
-some pixmaps were improved;
-I changed the top panel style. Now, you can find 2 themes : black and gray. I'm working on a Royal Blue one.
-I changed the menubar style. Now you can find more than 20 themes. You can make yours :-) Don't hesitate to share them !
-I changed the toolbar style. There are other styles. Choose yours.

How to customize ?
-All the styles are defined in 4 files : menubar-custom.rc, toolbar-custom.rc, panel_custom.rc, and menu-custom.rc. Have a look to them.
-To change the top panel theme : comment and/or uncomment the lines 18, 19 in the gtkrc file. panel_silver.rc and panel_black-plastic.rc contain the suitable styles to modify to obtain the desired panel. To have the best result, go to the panel properties, in the background tab, and select the right background (go to the panel folder in the GTK2 theme folder).
-To change the menubars, go at the end of the gtkrc file. Change the lines 1822, 1823, 1824 with one of the styles defined in the menubar-custom.rc file. You can define one style for particular windows (see lines 1825, 1826, and 1827), but don't forget that the more there are definitions like these, the more the GUI is slow !
-To change toolbars, change the lines 1815 to 1820 with one of the styles defined in the toolbar-custom.rc file.
-For the meuns style, all styles are defined in the menu-custom.rc file. The silver menu is ok.

But I would like to define a black menu, and the menuitem font color is still black, and I would like this to be white. I tested lots of things but the menuitems are always black. Can you help me ?

I also need your help to define a particular menu style for the panel (black menus), and another for all other windows and apps (silver menus). How can I do this ?

 Hey I have a problem

I'm sure this would sound familiar to some people, but unfortunately this keeps showing up:

"This theme will not look as intended because the required GTK+ theme engine is not installed."

Ever since I tried to download this and a few other themes, the same thing keeps popping up! I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to Linux, but this is really frustrating! I tried to install another GTK theme manager thing, but there's so many of them - while doesn't help not knowing a thing - but I can't figure that or the problem out! Please help!!
