Description:

Hello !

Sugar is sweet, as this theme (hopefully) !

Enough of bad joke, this theme is meant to be very clean and nice. Good for both professional and personal use I think.


It includes a dark menu version you can choose from Controls customization.


It is sensitive to color changes so you can customize it to your liking.
It comes with 5 sets of predefined colors : Blue (Sugar), Gray (SugarGrey), Green (SugarGreen), Orange (SugarOrange) and Brown (SugarUbuntu)

Sets use the great Gion Icon Theme. You can find it here : http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Gi%C3%B8n?content=36944
Ubuntu and Orange sets use the [strike]Human Icon Theme[/strike] ubuntu-mono-dark that comes with Ubuntu.

Feedbacks and bug reports appreciated !!!

Don't forget to vote if you like it.

I have been quite busy these days.

I'm still working on improve Metacity buttons and it is not easy to work without png file (in order to keep it color customizable)

I have been looking for a better fix for menubars of Firefox and OpenOffice. One solution is to turn menus (globally) dark which I do not want. Unfortunately this is the kind of bug that have to be fixed application side.

Stay tuned.

Yeah Nice of you to use my wallpaper without asking or giving credit or a link
back. I see that you are very particular about that normally so why should I be any different.

I don't see any wallpaper packaged with it, Just the GTK theme. Wallpaper is just in the screenshot from what I've seen.

Well if I am mistaken I'll be the first to admit it... I picked up on it on the comments from page 1 re the blue version. It is a nice theme though...

I have to say that this is a nice looking package. I can see a lot of your influences, and you bring a lot of the best parts of those influences to this theme. I will enjoy using it until the next big thing. :)

I don't even know the distribution you are using.

On Debian based you can type this in a terminal :
dpkg -l | grep murrine

In first place, congratulations because this great theme! It replaced Shiki-Colors in my desktop!

But there is a little bug, in Firefox and OpenOffice the menu bar isn't dark to match with window decoration. Please fix it because I like this theme so much!

I already know about this bug and still looking for a workaround.

If I let the menubar dark the text remain dark because Firefox and OpenOffice use the MenuItem text color which is wrong. That is why I can't make a dark MenuBar with light MenuItems.

Ok! Thank you for answering.
I note other little bug: sometimes metacity decoration turns gray in some windows. I'm using compiz with Ubuntu 8.10.

I don't have this bug. Are you able to reproduce it and send a screenshot ?
Is it specific to a particular window/application ?

Maybe it is a compiz related bug.

Report

Here is the screenshot. It is a synaptic window in root mode. I tried with other decorations and they don't fail.

And for the other bug (menubar color), shiki-colors can tint firefox and openOffice menubars, maybe it can help.
