I was waiting for Stomp for a while and it was released while I was away. (Figures )

Anyway, I installed it and....



Everything else looks fine - it's just the menubar with the crazy colors.

I've tried logging in and out, downloading the .guikit file from another location and reinstalling, and the menubar still looks like this. I'm not having problems with any other themes for ShapeShifter. Am I the only one having this problem? Does anyone know how to fix this?

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

digitaljames - I tried both Blue and Graphite settings and the problems persist.

MacMan - n00b? Are you calling me a newbie? I am, and I'm sorry I have all these questions.

I was just joking around, mostly calling the theme creater a n00b... No offense. We all started somewhere.

PS: welcome.

I fixed it!

I installed the theme, went to ThemePark and created a new theme, merged it with the installed one, and now it works fine. I'm still not sure what was wrong with the original. Oh well, at least it works.

MacMan - none taken. :-)

That's a weird problem. You see what you saw sometimes when a theme only includes "Enhanced Menus" for a single color variant (Aqua or Graphite) and you are using the other variant. But switching to the correct variant usually fixes things.

I assume that the reason it didn't for you is that ShapeShifter 2.1 has a problem where apps that are already running don't switch menubar appearance when you switch between Aqua and Graphite. So probably if you'd switched to Aqua and then launched a new app, it would have been fixed for that app.

I wish someone would make that a real theme.
