You can also download this version for free:

I find it works better than the open type version (baseline problems), which you have to pay for from a foundry.

See, this is why I won't use Ashen. Too depressing.

Nice desktop guys!

Here is my latest "creation":

It features Ashen (OS X Port by Mac15) a Florian Freundt wallpaper and iTunes Mini remote for konfabulator. Also seen is Adium; I never thought I'd use this IM app but it has sooo many more features than Proteus4 (And Adium is only at version 0.59 while Proteus is at version 4!)

I'm still trying to get the font to show up right in the menubar.. notice the difference between the clock at the right and the menus at the left! And it's the same font(Eurostile).

My Dock is hidden this time .. still trying to figure out if I should use DragThing again.

Click here for an Ashen screenshot. I find this soothing after all the flashy desktops I've had.

The problem is that Safari renders it's text seperately. Eurostile will make the Bookmarks bar unreadable. I haven't found a 'Eurostile' like font that looks good in Safari so I disable it.

Unreadable? This is Shiira though with Eurostile. Perhaps I misunderstood ?

btw. I'm talking about the menubar and wclock not Safari the menubar font seems to be not aligned properly, but I can live with it.
Look at Shiira with Eurostile.

No wonder....I thought the Shiira thing was a windows safari emulator or something....did you get a TTF version of Eurostile or one made for mac?
