Well, not so much a problem as a bothersome little bit. I've noticed that in every program, the images for checkboxes are opposite. For example, if I want something turned on in a program, I go into the menu and take the check-mark away. It's kind of confusing to remember that 'when a button is checked, that means it's not really checked.' I'm not sure if it was intentional in the design or if it's been brought up before (did a search, didn't think I saw anything about it). Either way, seems like a simple fix. I like the theme, but having the buttons screwed up like that can be bothersome.

I know what you're talking about. I'm not sure when that kicked in. I've seen it as well. I think it's only in /some/ applications. Are you certain it's theme related? (I have a hunch it is as well.) Certain to be fixed in 10001.

OK. I've looked at this a bit. blagCanyon, the main BLAG theme, was originally based on Grand Canyon.

One quick test is to just right-click on the desktop, go do "Disks" and see what is checked. Some themes have it wrong, some right, some nothing...

Themes that have checks when should be unchecked
Grand Canyon

Themes that are just blank
Ocean Dream
Smokey Blue
Large Print

Themes that have it right
High Contrast
High Contrast Inverse

This bug was reported to redhat/fedora forever ago. I let them know it's present in Fedora Core 2 (just checked it):


For that matter, it was in redhat 9 even:

I think that lots of programs used to do their checkboxes in a different method so it wasn't seen as much...

The fix is quite easy. I want to rebuild blagCanyon and roll in a couple other minor changes too (waiting on a couple icons). When that's done I'll upload the new blagCanyon for apt-getting. If it really drives you nuts you can just make the minor change listed in bugzilla to your file (/usr/share/themes/blagCanyon is the dir).

Thanks a lot! Also, are there going to be any other blag themes? I really like the style of blagCanyon, maybe that could be ported to other themes?

We (hyland & I) were planning to do a SVG version for 20000, but 20000 may be done before the theme is complete. We'll keep blagCanyon and add the new SVG one when it is finished.
