One for Spiral Linux, one for VBox, one for Windows. Don't see the problem. You can always switch to full screen if you want to hide a couple of taskbars.

Thanks I was quite proud of that theme as it was one of my earliest tries at creating my own way back in 2017. Before that I had simply fiddled around with other folks themes. 😎

Bored with house wrecking and jungle clearing I took time out ot investigate theme building in Window Maker. Found a fab wallpaper to use and had a fiddle around. Still a work in progress as I am not so happy with the font or the font colour. At least I figured out some of the esoteric intricacies of theme building on Window Maker.

I am going to call this theme when finished SHARK , what can I say I have a way with words and an artistic flair. 😜

Midnight theme . The next two are from the same source which I found on the net. They were made by someone called Largo whose inspiration was a lady called Isabell. I have several more by the same person but they are not suitable for posting here.

WM themes used to come with an information file detailing copyright,author etc about the theme.

An there you have a series of dark themes for Window Maker. Some of them from way back and some I made recently. As you can tell there are subtle differences which I find most interesting. Best of all you do not need to be a genius to make your own theme in Window Maker and thereby making your pc suit your personality.

Why not give it a try. 😎

Nice! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to do dark themes since I've gotten older. I find them hard on the eyes.

Well on all the dark themes it is really only the title bars and icon backgrounds and the pop up menu backgrounds that are dark. Not all of them though and the nearly all have white or a decent contrast colour for the text. As it is so easy to change themes in Window Maker I change them to suit my mood. 😎

I read an article on Meta's Galactica and made a Window maker theme based on it. Naturally I called the theme Galactica. 😜

Whilst looking through my collection of themes I realised that I did not indeed create the  BlackCat.theme.

The Black Cat theme is actually a Jess Anderson theme from the early 2000'S.
