Hi All

I found a neat icewm theme, Thinblack2, at:

http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=55648

I have copied the extracted files to /root/.icewm/themes and loaded the theme from the menu but the window titlebar and min/max & close buttons are not taking the themed items correctly

I have attached an image of what I have.

Can anyone help please? I think this is quite a cool looking theme.

All the best Gary

Puppy 2.16 on compaq D510 SFF

Same here.
Titlebar isn't working either.

VistaBlack_IV does the same thing to me. I never did figure it out even though it's one of my favorites.

Oddly enough on my 1024x768 screen, the title bar and min/max & close buttons are visible but, the title bar has a 'hinge' at each vertical corner. There appears to be some sort of displacement with the title bars. Perhaps they have been inadvertently swapped around? See picture.
A pity, it's a nice theme.

This works:

Open /root/.icewm/themes/Thinblack2/default.theme in a text editor.
Near the top, there is a line Look=flat
Change it to Look=metal

That fixed it for me.

Now off to VistaBlack_IV !!!

Now if I could just get that damn transparency to work in conky while in icewm, I just might give up xfce.
