Well... Well done ! Never seen that one before ! Matteroffactly, I'll upload this weekend a new version of Munics rather more based on the new default ubuntu GTK2 engine. I fear it won't be compatible with a few systems but it is rather faster (not pixmap based) and I expect a lot of feedback from the community to address most of the system-related issues... We'll see... - Apr 22 2009

I expect all my themes to work natively on ubuntu 8.10 as the engines I use are already packaged in it as default engines.

Thank you for your appreciation. - Jan 09 2009

Well... You haven't missed anything ! In fact, I was quite busy moving houses and making a lot of changes on a personal level. Additionally, I didn't have internet for nearly 2 months... Well, About theming, I'm trying to understand how engines are evolving and how one can come up with decently new designs as well as compatible on most linux distros... - Jan 04 2009

Well, you're actually right ! I designed it on a laptop (colours look somehow not as agressive) and the first time I saw it on a normal screen, I was a bit errrr... sorry for not testing it first on this type of media.

I'll think of a rework and try to improve the visual effect to make it less agressive. - Oct 03 2008

MAtter of factly, the glowing ball in the middle has a progressive transparent gradient. Not much in fact... - May 20 2008

If you're talking of the wallpaper used for the screenshots, it's actually included in the theme's GTK2 directory !

First, thank you for your comments.

I am a bit surprised about the issues you describe. As a matter of fact, I've downloaded epiphany and checkedin the preference dialogs of both epiphany and theme appearence and tabs are displaying correctly on my gnome 2.20.

Could you be kind enough to take a snaphot and pm it to me so that I can see what exactly happens on your desktop and then I may have a chance to fix it. - May 06 2008

Why not ! I'd gladly design one matching your favorite gtk theme if you provide me with the colour scheme you'd want to be used.

I only need 2 or 3 colours in hexadecimal notation. Does it sound fair ? - May 03 2008

No Cvs here. I've got 3 computers running gnome 2.20 (ubunut 8.04, Archlinux, Debian Sid) and I'm just using the regular clearlooks and pixmap engines.

I found a couple of annoying text color issues like light grey on white background (eg: nautilus left panel).

Apart from that, I must admit it is quite some work (although a bit too vista-ish to my own taste), well done though ! - Apr 12 2008

GTK2 Themes by murasame 6 comments

Well, on the one hand I think you're right when it comes to think of a theme on a large scale. Most users would rather go for a grey/slightly bluish interface (which is the most commonly used color for desktop themes). On the other hand, I've found out a few users (including me) won't feel any eye fatigue using a slightly shinier color. Matteroffactly I always try out my themes for over a week before publishing as I've often ended up NOT liking some of my earlier themes only after a couple of days for the very same reason you've mentioned!). As a conclusion, I reckon we don't have an eyefatigue issue here BUT I'd tend to think it sure is a question of taste, which would be perfectly understandable as I must honestly admit this choice of colour doesn't quite meet the most common standards. - Apr 12 2008

well, thank you for leaving a comment and please let me now of a good brown-ish theme you'dlike to have a perfect match icon-wise in terms of colors. i'd definitely be curious to see something somewhat more off the main stream !

Full Icon Themes by murasame 26 comments

Well... I don't know what to say... Quite strange indeed !

Where did you install the theme ? In home/user/.icons/ or in /usr/share/icons/ ?

I know it shouldn't make a difference but I really can't see why it's not working for you.

I'm still looking though. Anybody having the same problem ? - Mar 07 2008

What about the 'My PC' icon ? I'm afraid I can't see what you mean... You most definitely don't mean 'my computer' as it is already included...

Do you use gnome ? KDE ? Xfc ? - Mar 06 2008

To be honest, I've tried quite a few colours in my gtk themes and honestly, I wouldn't really know what you'd go for.

Just tell me in which colour(s) you'd like to see this one adapted and I'll post you a link for testing !

A better solution:

remove or comment the following lines:

style "silver-menubar" = "silver-default"
{
# bg[NORMAL] = "#f0f0f0"
bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "menubar.png"
}

and toward the end of the file:

class "*MenuBar*" style "silver-menubar" - Feb 22 2008

GTK2 Themes by murasame 10 comments

Well I suppose the murrine engine is only good to a point. Its main problem/asset is precisely its being graphically too 'murrine'... you get bored of it...

But it's a good thing it actually exists as it give people the opportunity to have a choice and learn from what has been achieved so far. I'm sure clearlooks/ubuntulooks/murrine will 'merge' in a way or another at some point. - Feb 10 2008

GTK2 Themes by murasame 11 comments

Well, it's about the way the gtk widgets & classes have to be handled.

Unfortunately, if you choose to have some pixart to polish the panels' look, you'll end up having panels/widgets issues like the one you describe.

The only solution (as far as I know) would be to remove the relevant lines in the gtkrc file.

In our case, that would be 2 lines referring to the panel style.
