This is a very very black modification of
my slickness theme.
I made it cause someone here at gnome-look
asked if I could.

New feature since version 0.3:
You can now choose colors using gnome
theme manager.
It is my very first try at something like this so it might not work exactly as planned.

Feedback of any kind is always welcome :D

To fix browser problems go here:

that fix will fix all your browser problems :)

A HUGE thanks to code933k for making it!!


To install:
1.Download the file to your desktop
2.Right click the file and select extract here
3.open a terminal and run these commands:
sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/SlicknesS-black /usr/share/themes
sudo chmod 777 /usr/share/themes/SlicknesS-black/Slickness-black.jpg

4.Open the theme manager, you can now
see the SlicknesS-black theme as a theme,
when you click on it , it suggests
taners amazing wallpaper he made for this theme!!
click apply to apply the wallpaper!

the icon theme it suggests is this one:


any problems with the install let me know!!!!

One REALLY HUGE thank you to artist Taner
for his fantastic wallpaper!

Gerva has made a fix that fixes openoffice problems! :

Thanks Gerva!


0.1 Fixed some bugs, Improved look of overall look, (should be more usable now)
changed look of toolbar and other things.

0.1.1 Fixed a bug where when you renamed a file
in nautilus you couldn't see the cursur.

0.2 Changed the colorscheme a little, a bit brighter now (but it's easier to spot some widgets that has focus etc.)
Some other minor changes.

0.3 You don't like my colorscheme?
choose your own colors in gnome theme manager. (just click restore to defaults
if something goes wrong).

0.3.2 Changed default colorscheme again and
improved the active/selected/normal colorshading
Fixed a bug that made some trayicons to
be drawn 1 pixel too low (Many thanks to
Moomex for that!!!!!!) ,made some minor tweaking to some elements (ie tabs are smaller now).

0.4 Made new scrollbar-sliders (older ones
where hard to spot), made completely new
entry style, fixed some uglyness in genereal. new listheaders. (in the first
screenshot I use macmenu hack version,
but this looks exactly like it except
for the menubar ofc)

0.5 Changed the scrollbarsliders a little,
removed the shadow from inactive fonts (as requested)
,included a fix for firefox (not mine).

0.5.1 Managed to remove the disabled font
shadow on treeview text too, (if you find
it someplace else let me know)

0.5.5 Fixed a bug where gimp showed ugly widgets
and removed the spacing between metacity

0.6 Fixed a bug where various apps inherited
the toolbar style.

0.6.2 Fixed more bugs... Gimp should look
fine now.

0.8 Now comes as a full theme package,
Including Taners amazing wallpapaer!!
plus I fixed some bugs and improved some stuff.

0.9 You can now have white input boxes
(as shown on screenshot 2) cause I changed
some color inheritance (combobox now has
different inhertitance and cursor in
box inherits text color).

Wait. You want to install this in Windows XP? If that is the case, it won't work and it is impossible. The theme is for Linux. If You noticed, this site is called GNOME-LOOK. GNOME is a desktop environment software for computers running Linux and Unix-like operating systems. Windows is not one of them. If you want this theme, you'd have to be running Linux. I suggest you switch to Ubuntu or another great Linux distro like openSUSE or Fedora and give it a try. If you want to install Ubuntu easyily, take a look at WUBI. http://wubi-installer.org/ It installs as a program in Windows XP but when you boot you have an option to run either Windows XP or Ubuntu. If you want to get rid of Ubuntu, boot into Windows XP and go uninstall Ubuntu like you would normally uninstall Windows programs. Good luck.

 Problem Installing

Hello I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and fairly new at this. This is the second theme I've tried to apply and fail at. I downloaded the tar file.. right clicked and "moved" to desktop.. clicked "Extract Here" but when I run a terminal and type in the command given it gives me this message:

cp: cannot create directory `/usr/share/themes/SlicknesS-black': Permission denied

Any ideas why?

All you should have to do now. If you are running lucid is to extract to desktop. --> right click on desk top. --> click on change desktop background --> choose themes (top left button). Then click and drag your slickness them in to the themes. It should install its self.

It will recommend new icons. Use the recommended or your own. To get new icons do the exact same thing for the theme. (extract to desk top, open themes menu, drag and drop)

Hope this helps :-)

Just type sudo before the rest of the command to run it as root user..... it will ask for your password and bypass the denied permissions
