The Forsaken


Not too long ago I wrote a poem when I was in one of darkened moods. It happens sometimes. Anyhow, I wanted to post this for those who wish to read it.

The Forsaken

The darkness is descending
On the wings of a raven
Death draws near
To my shelter, my haven

The night is getting darker
My future is bleak
The devil stands at my side
Asking, "What do I seek?"

I'm asking for forgivness
There is only sin in my sight
I've walked on the darkened path
Furthest away from the light

I am lost in the clutches
My desires are cursed
The further away I go
I fear my heart will burst

I'm enveloped by the darkness
Madness my only friend
The silence calls out to me
Voices I cannot comprehend

I travel down a road
I wish I never would have taken
But please remember me
I am known as The Forsaken

Dusty Mint


This is my first GTK2+ theme release. I call it "Dusty Mint". It is based off of the ever famous Dust theme released on the Ubuntu wiki site I believe. I don't have the link handy, but if you're an enthusiast, you already know where to get it!

I was impressed with the simplicity and elegance of the original Dust theme but thought that it would look pretty cool with at Minty take on it. This is the result.

Included is a Metacity theme, but I included the bordered one from the Dust Extras download.

For those who use Mint, I included a new menu button, which is in the gtk folder. I also made the taskbar png image a bit more transparent for those who will use it. It is included as well.

It uses as default the LinuxMint icon theme, as I know people use their own icon themes and generally don't like the default ones.

It uses Clearlooks and Murrine as the original Dust theme uses, so there shouldn't be any incompatibility issues.

Install instructions: Extract the zip anywhere you wish; open your Appearance settings, click the Theme tab, and drag and drop the "tar.gz" file into the open window.

I hope everyone likes it as much as I do.

I accept no responsibility to your system should any unforeseen issues arise. There shouldn't be a problem though.

Happy Linux'ing!
