Description:

A quiet, unobtrusive theme for the murrine engine. Inspired by the buttons in Vista and Gmail's baby blue hues.

I've been slowly fine-tuning this for a couple of months now and it should be bug-free, in GNOME at least. I have no clue what it looks like in XFCE, bug reports are welcome.

GTK+ Code based on the proposed Ubuntu Human-Murrine Dark, with some bits of Shiki-Colors.
Metacity is a shameless hack of Dust.

But again a bit different.

I like it! Thanks!

It looks great! I'm using it with the Kamel Alpha icons and it looks absolutely gorgeous :)
My only suggestion would be to have the maximize icon change when maximized. Other than that I love it!

I love the Kamel icons, but they haven't been updated in ages and are woefully incomplete. I switch to them from time to time, for ol' times sake.

The window decoration is just a simple hack of Dust, as I'm absolutely crap with pixmaps. However, the maximize is just an up arrow. What would you wish the restore to look like? An arrow pointing down or a dash would look too much like a minimize button. If you could whip up an alternate button in accordance with the others, I'd be more than happy to use it.

I also wish the icons were more complete, but I'll just live in denial and keep using them :p
I'll take a stab at something for the maximize/restore icon and see what I can do.

Thanks for the theme. It looks great with xfce. But I have found 1 problem.

With terminal, the theme makes the menubar transparent. However with other applications e.g. thunar etc the menu bar is not transparent.

Other than that it works great :)

Thanks

It's not a bug, it's a feature :)

The new murrine engine supports real widget transparency, which I should've turned off. I'll do so in the next update, but I have a couple of other little fixes to write first.

In the meantime, open the gtkrc and change line 95: "rgba = TRUE" to FALSE.

Thanks for the catch.

which version of murrine is required for this theme?

Report

Good question. Any recent (6 months or so) SVN build should be fine.

Of course, the first thing to do is try the theme out and see if it works. It's quite possible that your distribution already has a compatible version.

Failing that, you can compile the engine yourself from SVN, or hunt down a package appropriate to your distribution.

Best of luck.

Very easy on the eyes, nice and clean yet functional. This one will be on my machines for a very long time. Well done!

Great Theme :)
What's the font in the screen?

Report

Liberation Sans, Fedora's font. Just pick up the official tarball and dumb the .ttf files in ~/.fonts

In GNOME Appearance Preferences use regular, size 8.6 (which for some reason GNOME transforms to 8.59961!) for Application, bold 8.6 for Desktop & Window, regular 9 for Document.

Hope this helps.

this theme is perfect. thank you!

one thing, on the very latest murrine svn, it doesn't work because of a small problem. the "style" line in the gtkrc causes it to break for some reason. remove that and it's fine.

I followed your advice. I don't think it's going to break anything. I'm not even sure why the "style" option is there in the first place, it's a relic from clearlooks for choosing between gummy, glossy, and classic.

The "colorize_scrollbar" option is a feature of the newest murrine. I therefore suspect that you have an older version installed. I don't know which version is in debian, nor which branch you are using, but if your repo doesn't have it, you can either compile it from SVN or find one of several .debs floating around.
