Slavek you are referring to Trinity R14.0.5 release theme? Maybe a user 
theme contest is in order, where one Trinity person is sent themes made 
by Trinity users and they are posted for all interested eyes and then 
voted on by interested Trinity users for the theme they like the best.

If it's not to late maybe we can have such a contest, I'm pretty sure we 
have some people here with graphic experience that would love to take 
part in such a contest for the desktop they love?  Or have you all ready 
made a theme contest announcement and got little response?

Cheers,
