New Default Theme for Phoenix

Tuesday December 24th, 2002

Arvid Axelsson's Qute is now the default theme in Phoenix, replacing the previous Orbit-derived skin. The transition to the new theme is mostly complete but a few changes still need to be made. The new default theme isn't in the latest builds yet, but here's a screenshot of Qute in the most recent nightly to give you an idea of what it will look like. Follow the thread in the Phoenix Themes forum for more details.

Update! The latest Windows nightly now features the new default theme.

Another Update! The latest Linux builds now also feature Qute as the default theme.

#56 GTK colors work correctly too under KDE or GNOME

As the previous response noted I wouldn't bother complaining about the gray color for the window widgets. If you are using Windows or Linux with KDE or GNOME and you have changed your widget colors then Phoenix will correctly pickup those color changes. Nice GTK work Phoenix developers. For those Windows XP people that can't figure out how to change their theme you might want to consider switching to Redhat 8 or Mandrake 9 linux. You would be suprised to find that all the buttons, scroll bars, menu colors will get picked up on linux from the window manager theme. You can even use a Windows XP looking theme to make you feel more comfortable. I also think Mozilla and Phoenix crash less under linux also.
