Question, is the startmenu supposed to be white?
If so, do you have a version where everything is black?

Thanks, beautiful theme.

How can I make it so my text box is not gray? I would prefer it to be white.

I'm having a problem with the scrollbar disappearing and the only way I can see it is if I hover over the exact spot of it. Besides that, the theme is my favorite. It's just that the scrollbar is completely black unless I hover it.

Nittiyh Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2009  Student Interface Designer
yup, the scrollbar autohides, that's normal. :P

SaintCrox Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2009
Is there a workaround for that, because it's troublesome playing Marco Polo to find the scrollbar placeholder when looking at pages with a lot of text.
Another thing is that I sometimes find the color of the font matching the same color as the menu background thus a black box appears with a very faint grey when hovering over it.
It's an excellent theme also. Fits extremely well with my desktop. Just a few things I would want to change, but unfortunately can't.

If you don't want it to autohide, you'll have to modify the VS with Vista StyleBuilder. :P
There are some places where we have no control over the text color. And it's black by default so I can't change it..

Well, that's cool. I love it either way. It's pretty awesome. Brings life to my desktop.
By the way, do you know where I can find some Gaia Dark wallpaper?

PLEASE make a W7(x64) version!

Nittiyh Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2009  Student Interface Designer
If I could believe me I would !
But 7 is even more of a pain in the ass to skin than vista, and making a 7 version of this wouldn't be as good as people expect it to be.
But you can check my gallery, my latest Visual Style for vista has gotten a daily deviation, and I'm working right now on a port to windows 7 :) + another brand new theme for windows 7 too.
Thanks for the support :P

We aren't all using 7 yet. Those who said Vista is outdated are wrong, we're only starting to find the most tweaks we can do to Vista, and 7 customization just sucks for now.
So I'm sorry I can't port this to 7.

hi another problem. the taskbar arrows show up as the default (vista) ones with any skin i apply. is there a freeware program that lets me change it?

with xp, i've used styler.

are also programs (google chrome) that has black text appear on the black background making it unreadable. (options menu > under the hood) as well as pop up notificstions [receiving a pm in a forum for instance].

is there any way i could change this?



many thanks.

The arrows are a part of the browseui.dll file.
You can use jg-visuals' browseui with this theme, click on the link in the description. Then search google for a how-to replace the browseui.dll

And about the black text, all dark themes have that problem. I fixed the most I can.

Okay, downloaded the Gaia dark theme [here], uncompressed it and 4 folders show up:

Gaia09Dark, etc, etc,

Decided to choose GaiaDarkRed folder. Placed that folder into Windows/Resources/Themes folder.

Inside that Gaia folder are as follows:
en-Us folder
Shell folder
GaiaDarkRed Visual Style file

Then right clicked desktop> Personalization > Theme. Nada.

I'm pulling my hair out here. What am I doing wrong exactly?

I installed VistaGlazz and my system files are patched.

Try going to your Theme folder, go in the GaiaDarkRed folder, and doubleclick the GaiaDarkRed Visual Style file. That should work.
