jump to the 4th line of gtkrc:
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16:panel=16,16:gtk-button=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=22,22"
change 22,22 to any size you want.

from line 173 to 186, switch theme-xxx to a larger size, for example, replace "slim" by "wide", etc.

Don't you think the scrollbar is too thin?

Thank you.
That's the very reason I call it "aurora smooth". Because choosing this typical size is the only way to avoid not so smooth handles on the scrollbars.
But of cause you can change it to your satisfaction.

Thank you very much. Great job, really nice.I found some other websites of yours. There was one blue wallpaper(like the vista green wallpaper) which can be fit very well to this theme. Is there any chance that you remember it?

I can not find the original page. But, after 10 minutes google, I got a similar one,

You may not have the wallpaper, it's not yours post anyway. I think I saw that wallpaper on your website somewhere. Anyway, long time age.

Well, it's indeed my screenshot, you can see my name on that, it was originally posted in chinese ubuntu forum.
I think I got this wallpaper here some time ago, but I cannot remember the right name.
Ah, I found it:

I've grabbed more things from gnome-look than I can count, but I registered *just* to tell you how great this GTK theme is.

I did pick one color out of my wallpaper and change the highlight color to better complement it. But that's only because I don't have blue wallpaper.

I love finding a nice looking theme that isn't too basic, but also where it is clean and easy to read. This is my favorite all around by a mile.

Well, I know it won't satisfy everyone, it depends on the brightness of your monitor , your taste etc, but you can change the colors via Appearance Properties as you please.

I can't set panel and conky/crispy script :(

can u help me?

Do you use gnome-panel? If true, right click on your panel, and click properties->background, you can choose a background pic for your panel.

As for conky, install it first with your pkg manager, then put .conkyrc in your home directory, and those fonts in ~/.fonts as well. Start conky via gnome-open.

Crispy script? Do you mean that patch? Well then you'll have to compile it yourself. It may be a little difficult for some popular distros like ubuntu.

Ehm... and can u make a "reverse" version of emerald theme? With buttons like in metacity? Thx ^^

It's easy to change button layout via Emerald Theme Manager->Title Bar->layout->Normal Layout.
Paste the following string to the layout box:
U:IT:N(7)X(7)C:Normal Layout

Hi, first please make sure you've downloaded the latest theme, and check if there exists ~/.themes/Aurora Smooth/index.theme, if true, remove it and choose Aurora Smooth again. I think the problem will have been solved by then.
Good luck!

I made sure it was the latest package - from may 27 2008.

secondly, these are the files in:

usr->share->themes->Aurora Smooth->gtk-2.0->"gtkrc"

only one file....called "gtkrc".

what's wrong?
