nightfall (a compact theme) 1.1

ok started from scratch with the default cinnamon 1.6 theme as template. hopefully this theme is now 1.6 compatible, i dont know

i must say that there are many things in cinnamon i dont use, for example expo and multiple workspaces, and many things i dont even know how to activate (on screen keyboard for example) so it may be that such things arent really in style with the rest of the theme. if so they probably look like the default cinnamon 1.6 theme. the same might be the case with much of the new stuff introduced in 1.6, because i dont use them or dont know how to activate them, or most likely, i have no clue what those things are


-its probably best to not use customized panel size in cinnamon-settings with this theme...

-using boxpointer arrows dont seem to work with shadows under menus and without the arrows the menus appear midway under the button clicked. annoying. but shadows under menus are to me much more important (maybe clem or someone has an idea how to fix this?)

-theres bound to be bugs. maybe ill fix them some day



#####old description####

a compact theme with shadows under menus

shadows inspired by DeLorean-Dark by jo-shva

compactness inspired by jelly bean by debimint

(might have stolen some code from the above themes as well)

otherwise this theme evolved from my old themes

gtk themes also included, that more or less match

###changelog ###

1.1 attempted to make it 1.6 compatible

    5 stars on the theme but the add workspace button in expo is not sized correctly. Makes it look really ugly please fix.

    The menu can't be moved on theme level and it's not possible to use boxpointers and shadows simultaneously, it's either/or with that - just so you don't waste time trying to figure out how :o)

    great theme ! I was wondering if you could make the popupmenu stick to the left side of the screen and eliminate the gap. here is a picture:

    twodogs, id like to move the main menu(and other menus) too but i dont know how :/ i guess it would look better with the 'arrow' design other themes use (like this ) - but i cant get shadows under the menus to work with arrows, and to me the shadows are more important. and like i said i dont know how to move the menus....if anyone knows please post it!

    I like your theme. The dark panel and bright white (not washed out) icons in the tray look great! One thing I want to change... Do you know how I can move the Main Menu to the left a little bit? If you look at the calendar, it is close but not touching the right side of the screen. The Main Menu is like a full centimenter almost from the left side of the screen. It's in the details, dig? Thanks for the nice theme.
