Oversword Dark V4.2 by oversword Oversword Dark V4.2 by oversword
Originally based on and built from BlueSpace II ([link]).

I think this makes a perfect glossy black theme that's sleek and powerful.
This theme, like most other dark themes, goes best with a vibrant and colourful background which makes everything stand out all the more.
If you want a copy of my background or backgrounds I've made like that one leave a comment, and if I get enough comments about it I may upload
them to gnome-look.
Hope you enjoy, feel free to post me ideas or changes you would like made to the theme as it is still a work in progress.
I used the code for the text boxes from this theme: ([link])

Note: The toolbar I'm using is a modified version of the one that comes with the theme, it is tailored to my screen size and needs which is why I didn't include it, if anybody wants a version don't hesitate to ask.

If you prefered an older version of the theme which has features that no longer exist I may be able to send you a legacy version.

I've started using my GTK 2x theme as my firefox theme so no link is required but i still think this one is quite good and suitable for the look.

I've changed Emerald themes to a modified version of the emrald theme in this suite: ([link]). Although i'll still give credit to the old one too.

(any themes I've not listed and you want leave a comment)

Now fixed the DeviantArt link and will only be supplying that link in the future. Once downloaded extract the .zip file and install the .tar.gz file as you usually would a theme.

Although the DeviantArt licencing doesn't allow it this work is GPL so it's free free free free free in every sense of the word (go for it)
