« on: September 24, 2013, 10:40:17 pm »

Downloaded a few darker themes to try on VL from xfce-look.org, many are very nice but

I could not see the text in the browser

J-Pilot crashes with several, perhaps other applications

the clock color is diminished on the wallpaper

Decided to try creating a simple gtkrc theme, which is harder than I thought.

created this from xfce-charcoal which was like the above but did not crash jpilot. not as nice as the "concrete" theme but a work in progress. I call it xfce-dust-VL

Here is a pic

Here is the rc if someone wants to try it or edit further.
