    Dark semi transparent theme in the making

    Well, I got a tad fed up with the default white theme so I'm making my own.

    I for one find darker themes to be easier on the eyes, and I run a modified xfce_dusk theme with compositing enabled on my laptop, so that's the inspiration for this.

    I snagged the transparent tray image from the new Hero theme, the rest is gimped from the original/is the original.

    I'll release a metamorph pack once I get it a bit more polished, there's still an issue with the background for items on the shade pull and the text for the clock and status bar are too dark.

    Screenshot time.





    Let me know what you think.

    Do you mean just the top status bar itself, or the entire notification shade?
    I'll roll it up and post it after the festiivities are over.

    One problem you will run into is that the time color is unchangeable at this point (no one knows how to change it), but the date color is stored in framework-res.apk/res/layout/status_bar.xml.

    @Berzerker: I remember seeing a recent post on xda about the clock text color being in a jar file, and another about someone finding it in an xml file. I'll be tarred and feathered if I can find either post when I actually need to...
    For now it's just an inconveniance, since the patern lock screen shows time just fine for me when I need it.

    Posting the alpha release for thed0cb once I get on my laptop... Stupid "uploads disabled"...

    FTP saves the day!

    I know this will sound stupid, but how do you install this, or what home app is this compatible with? thanks
