Blue-Joy is a combination of the Blue-Junior GTK theme, Azur GTK theme and the Slickness Metacity theme. I have made a lot of special modifications myself. The drop down menus, panel, check boxes, radio boxes, buttons and tabs are all custom designed for this theme.

The icon theme used in the desktop screen shot is "Elementary Icons".

Because this is a black theme it has some colored text bugs in Firefox 2
(Firefox 3 does not have this problem).

In Firefox, some pages have white background with white text,to fix this
go to (in Firefox) Edit>Preferences>>Content ,click on colors,
Uncheck the "Use system colors" check box
Then restart Firefox.

To have white text in the Firefox menubar you must modify userChrome.css
Add the following code to your userChrome.css file.
userChrome.css is located at: /home/{YOUR USERNAME}/.mozilla/firefox/{YOUR PROFILE ID}/chrome/userChrome.css

menubar > menu {
color: white !important;

menubar > menu[_moz-menuactive="true"] {
color: white !important;

menulist:hover, menu:hover, menuitem:hover {
color: white !important;


-Removed the button background from toolbar buttons.
-Changed the hover background for active windows in the panel.
-Changed the color of buttons (Added more blue)
-Changed the toolbar background.
-Changed the metacity background.

-Fixed Scrollbar bug in specific applications like Listen Music Player and evolution.
-Changed radio buttons
-Changed check box buttons
-Changed slider handles

-Made a slight change to the scrollbar

-Lightened the color of the Pager/Workspace switcher (As Requested)
-Fixed Spin Boxes Not displaying
-Fixed vertical progress bar (it was resizing itself)
-Fixed cursor not showing when renaming files in the file manager
-Dulled the text highlight color(it was really bright)
-Smoothed/Cleaned up the tabs
-Changed the buttons to have rounded corners (As Requested)
-Changed highlight color on menus. (Previous color was taken from the Blue-Junior GTK theme. The new color matches the blue in the rest of the theme much better )

I see your problem...
You need to install the theme engine.
Install gtk2-engines-pixbuf
Then logout and log back in.

Great work. It looks really good with the Elementary icon set.

I have one problem. The same one I have with the mac_4_lin and/or the leopardish theme.

I like to make my bottom panel transparent, but when no windows are open there is still a black rectangle to represent one open window and doesn't look nice.

Anyone know what i might be doing wrong/missing? I can post a screenshot if necessary.

Hi love your theme,
seems to work good for a dark theme however emails in Evolution seem to have white text on a white background.

 Inactive txt shadow

Great theme but there's one small thing that's nagging me. Inactive txt has a shadow wich makes the whole thing less clear. Would be great if you'd remove the shadow.

Some people are like Slinkies… Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

I've checked the rest of the comments, and I don't think this has been asked yet, but if it's a repeat question, apologies.

What wallpaper are you using in the screenshots? I really like how it fits with the theme.

I don't remember where I got the wallpaper. I didn't make it so I can't distribute it on here because I don't know if the license is GPL. Here is the url to wallpaper hosted on imageshack though...
