Black metal theme innit.

Óðinn comes in a top panel version and a bottom panel version, you'll see why if you try to use the top panel version in a bottom panel layout, or vice versa. If you have a top+bottom panel setup - this theme ain't for you :o)

Font: Droid Sans

- Dec 17, 2012: Improved workspaceOSD
- Dec 9, 2012: Revamped and fully updated for Cinnamon 1.6

    Not possible, I'm afraid.

    Hi, this theme is wonderful, but it's missing one thing. Could you add something to highlight the currently selected menu icon. Something like the background image for when you hover over a favorite would look really nice.

    Beautiful! But is it possible to make the panel also black?

    I was using gnome-wise, but I get the same effect with gnome, gnome-colors-common, hicolor and pretty much all of the icon themes that have the round Firefox icon as opposed to the square one. One thing I do notice is that it only happens when I have four or more launchers on the panel, with three they seem to have enough room. It's also noticeable that it only happens to certain icons, as if they are *just* too wide for the space allotted.

    Hi sally, I can't reproduce the issue, all icon themes I have work fine with the panel applet theming. What icon theme do you use?

    I like the semi-transparent panel a lot and it's nice to see a bigger panel. There's just one minor aesthetic thing that bothers me - using the official Panel Launchers applet, the wider icons have their sides cut off - just a few pixels, but enough to be annoying. The most obvious example is the Firefox icon, but it does it to SMPlayer as well. (I'm using the traditional round icon - I don't like the square ones.) I don't know if that's something you can fix in the theme or if it's an applet problem, but it doesn't happen in Loki.

    Ok I understand, i hear also that Cinnamon and probably gnome 3 have fonts problem. About the panel below it's ok too, i just wanna make sure why is that but since am top panel fan is ok to me too :) Thank you for this great theme, love this semi transparent panel, kinda KDE a like :D

    Oyabunbaba, font rendering is not very hot in either Gnome shell or Cinnamon, it's not something that can be helped on theme level though you notice it less with bold fonts. The small panel version is for bottom panel layouts, at the moment in Cinnamon a bottom panel can only be 25px, not taller, not shorter, or panel text gets messed up, so I can't make it 32px like in the top panel version.

    Its working now, thank you. Is that below panel smaller than the top by design? i prefer top one, like it's bigger :) Only request i can have is the fonts, probably it will look better in bold version. Right now looking like without anti aliasing.

    I installed it manually then choose from settings but nothing changed, then ALT+F2 r, and all cinnamon dissapeared. Have to use ctrl+alt+back to hget in and log in into gnome session to remove the theme, then it went to default cinnamon. This theme is not working for me.
