Hi Jerry - I cannot find the "Lite Control Centre"??  Has it been deprecated from 3.0?  Just wondering.  Thank you for a great release.

Where there's a will, there's a way!

Check this out :   

Working perfectly for me thanks  :)

Another update to Lite Themes.

There is now more continuity across the theme.

Before Firefox menus were white, they're now blue.
Before LibreOffice menus were white, they're now blue.
Before Thunderbird menus were white, they're now blue.
Before Firewall menus were white, they're now blue.

And importantly, tray icon menus are now all blue too.



Having a Lite Themes package in LL 3.0 has made life SO much easier to deploy fixes now.
Things will continue to improve :)

Don't want them blue. They need to be white against whatever the panel color is. To have blue blocks like that doesn't look right.
Are the blue blocks optional?

Thanks!
Len

I haven't tried it yet, but it looks like the blue block appears when you highlight an indicator to see its options.  It also appears that when you switch the icons from Faenza to Faenza Dark, you'll get lighter colored indicators on the dark panel.

Clean 32-bit install, once installed & started close the Welcome Screen & open Synaptic before running updates & it appears everything is marked for upgrade no matter what is selected on the left menu.
I never thought to screenshot it but it said something like 1500 installed, 1500 to upgrade down the bottom left & all the entry's checkboxes were green & 'unmark' was the only option available if they were clicked on.
Close Synaptic, run updates & all is ok in Synaptic then, it can be used as normal.

Most people will probably follow the Welcome Screen's advice & update first but I guess it could cause someone a whole lotta grief if they follow through with Apply etc.....

I think the blue Jerry has added in the theme update is the 'prelight' (mouse moving over but not clicked) colour for the menu, before the change with the default theme this was white, when the white menu was open the prelight was also white & you couldn't see where the pointer would be selecting if it was clicked.
Now it's blue, easy to see & the icon only changes to blue as it's clicked, the icon appears to keep it's original prelight colour & goes back to it's original background colour once the mouse is away from it.

32-bit, with Whisker menu & an application menu on the panel.
If I edit the application menu's properties, move things up, down, add or delete items, separators or check / uncheck items etc. the same changes happen in the Whisker menu.
I guess it's an XFCE thing, not really what I'd call user friendly to rectify as in the end it was a case of delete the panel & start again.

I thought any changes made in the app menu probably should be separate from the Whisker menu but apparently not, LOL.
Opened Whisker to discover it had about 2 items left total  :o    ;D

That is correct JmaCWQ. Up until the last update, approximately 70% of the theme used prelight, now it should be more like 100% :)

A little more on Synaptic now I've done a couple more fresh installs, I got it wrong again, sorry.
Synaptic is unusable until the package info is reloaded for the first time, then the 'All' menu appears.
Before that reload it only shows what's installed on the system which is why everything is checked green.
Makes no difference if the initial update is done or not.

Following the logic of adding Faenza Dark icons, if not now, then by LL 3.2, the terminal background should be basic black.  As Joe Collins mentioned in his YouTube review of Linux Lite 3.0, the default dark gray background makes it really hard to read Resource Usage (aka htop) or other things with colored text.  And the Linux Lite target audience, Windows user, is used to seeing that in a Windows command prompt.  A basic black background.  Even the default off-white or gray foreground lettering looks much better (or at least much easier to see) when the background is completely black.

Yes, it looks fine. Thanks Jerry, and thanks for the Faenza-Dark icons...working beautifully with the Arc-Dark theme.

Thanks again!

The Check MD5SUM right click option doesn't appear to be showing in LL 3.0.  Is anyone else noticing this?
