I originally had this theme with a lighter coloring, but with the dark toolbar. How do I get this back? I recently wiped my hard drive and reinstalled/upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10

My friend,
I'm on linux from a couple of ... centuries (LOL) and please believe me if I tell you that this is the best theme ever!
"elegant" is the right word, nothing else to tell :D
Thank you very much, I found my theme after 20 years, it is the first one I didn't changed after one week, it's still on my gnome from a month now and I'm installing on all my friend's laptops :D

Thanks again.

 Switching Themes

 by pissnaround on: Dec 12 2010
Score 50%

I hope this doesn't seem too dumb a question. First I think this is the best pre-packaged theme I've run into. But I do like to try other themes on occasion. My question is, do I need to unload all of Elegant Gnome before I try a different theme? Or, once it's installed, can I just try others by switching themes in the appearance panel?

Of course, you can. But it's better if you run Elegant GNOME app and choose the "Restore the previous settings" menu before applying the new themes, becouse during the installation, Elegant GNOME app installs some specific fixes (like the fix for the Firefox), that may cause the problems with the other themes. And if you decide to go back to Elegant Gnome, you'll just choose the "Install the pack" menu entry again.

Hope i've answered on your question.

 GDM2 theme

This theme is absolutely gorgeous the only slight problem i have is.
The gdm install doesn't work on archlinux without a few tricks. But even then it doesnt change the screen after you locked your machine and have to enter your password.

Last time i was testing the pack on Archlinux last time, everything worked as it should. Actually there was a problem with the archlinux's new gksu package(you can find information about this on archlinux's forum), so you've just downgraded it.
