DarkBlack Theme for GIMP by tarkan-t29 DarkBlack Theme for GIMP by tarkan-t29
Bug with linux, read before installing the theme !!!
The base that I've used with this theme uses clearlooks engine to render the UI, it seems that this engine is not existing anymore on new Gnome 3 based systems, I'm looking forward for a possible fix, if anyone got an idea, it woul be nice to share it with me :) !

Ever wanted a black theme for your preferred image processing software? Now you can enjoy a black and distraction free theme :) !
I've reworked some objects like buttons and tabs and so on, I used a base theme here : thegimp.ca/gimp-2-8-dark-theme…
Then I adapted the graphic elements, I've also used the excellent icons set of this theme : android272.deviantart.com/art/…
And finally this icon pack for the preferences icons : adamwhitcroft.com/batch/

Install Instructions :
Extract the folder and place it in '%Program Files%\GIMP 2\share\gimp\2.0\themes' where %Program Files% stands for the folder where you've installed GIMP, then start GIMP, menu Edition => Preferences => Theme, choose BlackDark, validate and restart GIMP :) !

Hope that you'll enjoy this work.
(I've managed to adapt most of all the icons, but some elements can't just be adapted, I'll try to find some resources for that :) ) .

Hello I really like what you have do with my theme. I have even started to implement some of your theme back into my theme. I was wondering what makes the scroll bars blue when you click them?  I have imported your scrollbar.rc and nothing else from your theme that should affect the scroll bars.  I have checked where I change my scroll bars colors and nothing there should make them blue when you click them.  So I looked in the scrollbar.rc file and as fare as I can see nothing in it should make them blue. looked at the images and they are all gray.  So I am confused as to why the scroll bars turn blue when they are clicked.

Hello, sorry for the very late response :/
To be honest, I really don't know too, I tried to investigate the question, but I can't find what makes such a reaction to occur..

This is great. I'm using it in Windows 7, so my menu bar comes up as white with a black highlight, not black. I think this is more a function of Windows than you. Thanks for the theme.  :happybounce:

Yeah, I'm planning to work on that, the base idea was that but I thought it would be better to make this one with less blue tones as possible, then work another with blue tones (I love blue & black btw :meow: ).

Right now I'm using a theme called "Aurora-Midnight" with Gimp 2.6 and like it very much.
I do have 2.8 portable installed, and was wondering if your theme is compatible with Gimp 2.8?
