I encountered a problem.
When compiling from source and use --enable-macmenu nothing happens, I mean the code does not compile with it. I have had to manual add #define HAVE_MACMENU 1 to murrine_draw.c for it to work for me.
Maybe it's my mistake:) it is writen to config.h I dunno why it it is note used.

[macmenu=$enableval]

I tried the installation many times, I tried from source, from the debs, from anything and this thing simply doesnt work...
I followed the instrctions exactly...
nothing.
I just cant use this theme, period.
Most of the other themes work for me but this doesnt, even after reading the instructions a million times over this theme engine simply wont work plain and simple.

for 68000 people it worked, so you are the problem, AND NOT MURRINE. Murrine is working absolutely fine for everyone.

First of all:
Install Murrine Engine.
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=239378

Second:
INSTALL THEMES, FOR EXAMPLE THEMEPACK
http://cimi.netsons.org/pages/murrine/themes.php
Just extract the Folders of the archive under /home/youruser/.themes (attention to the "." dot!)

Third:
Select theme under Gnome Theme Selector --> press on Theme Details, you will find it under "Controls"

If it is not working again ask on the ubuntu thread, we will help you.

Is rated so high, it doesnt work for me...
On ubuntu and the so called installer doesnt work, and even if it does the styles are messed up here...

I think the other styles are better as obviously those who make the ubuntu packages have no idea what they are doing...

First of all this is rated High since it works and it is better in performances and look to other themes.

It is working to _ANY_ people, so if it isn't working in your PC probably you have made a mistake.

1)Install ubuntu package
2)Install themes

Please read before vote bad without any reason.

Hi,

Thx for your wonderfull work! it's really amazing.

I begin to test it today. I found a bug with the CD/DVD creator. It happens with all the themes I tested. So Is it a bug in the engine ?

When you click on the CD/DVD creator in nautilus, a little panel appears and this panel don't have the theme color...

I Had this pb with Gentle from bvc. And he fixed it.

Thx for all
Guillaume

it's not a bug of the engine.

Nautilus uses a STRANGE widget for cd/dvd creator.
Benzea found it and bvc updated all his themes with that fix.
The same thing can be added to all Themes, Murrine based included.

Follow discussion on bvc's forum
