Description:

I just wanted to make you all aware, that there is a GTK theme available that matches Mosfets High Performance Liquid KDE style very good.

Now you can have one Liquid style for more applications.

The download link goes to freshmeat, where you can find the theme called XLiquid GTK: http://themes.freshmeat.net/projects/xliquid_gtk/?topic_id=923%2C957

PLEASE NOTE THAT I'M NOT THE CREATOR OF THIS THEME.

This theme is not meant for beeing imported into KDE. KDE applications should use Mosfets High Performance Liquid Style.

This GTK theme is for GTK applications to look similar to KDE applications.

The How-To-Install instructions on KDE Look.org refer to a previous theme importer in KDE 2.x that never worked really good.

To make it work for GTK applications, extract the file to any folder (e.g. ~/.gtk_themes/). Then overwrite your ~/.gtkrc file with the file ~/.gtk_themes/XLiquid_GTK-1.0.1/gtk/gtkrc. Comment out the pixmap_path at the beginning of ~/.gtkrc and adjust the path to the directory, where you've extracted the theme to.

Now start a GTK application like GIMP. It should obbey to the XLiquid GTK style from now on.

Sorry for the frequent changes with no update. I have troubles with KDE-Look.org updating the thumbnail. Yesterday evening, it did not change to the new thumbnail, this morning it changed.

Hello !

Freshmeat has changed his site and I can't find the themes section. Can someone post a download link to get the xliquid gtk 1 version theme ?
Thank you very much !

KDE 3.4.2: I don't have any /home/me/.gtkrc file. I have a /home/me/.gtkrc-2.0 if I select any GTK theme from k control center.. I replaced THAT file with yours, after renaming it to .gtkrc-2.0, but gtk apps always display that default Raleigh style... any idea?

Hello,

I like this theme! I use Fluxbox with GTK1 (Sylpheed, XMMS) and GTK2 (GThumb, Galeon, etc...) and was fed up with the uggly default theme of GTK1. Now there is no differences between GTK1 and GTK2 apps. Really cool!!!

The GTK 1.x theme crashes some apps for me. Nmapfe (nmap front end) and putty run fine but XMMS and dillo (a lightweight web browser) crash while starting up:

XMMS:
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
serial 523 error_code 8 request_code 2 minor_code 0


Dillo:
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
serial 1635 error_code 8 request_code 155 minor_code 4

Both display windows for 1/2 a second.

This is GTK+-1.2.10-r11 on Gentoo Linux for X86. Anyone got any ideas?

Any chance this will ever get ported to GTK 2.0? I notice it's for GTK 1.2 only and all my 1.2 apps run great with it, but new stuff like gaim CVS uses 2.0 and I really like this GTK theme and would love to see it ported to new versions of GTK so all my GTK apps can use it. :)

to install this is to fire up the GNOME 1.4 Control Center (gnomecc)and then use its install theme button within the Themes control panel. Select the .tar.gz file and then choose it from the list.

The real question is what theme gkrellm is using in the screenshot above. Does anyone know? Is the original poster still listening? I'd love to have that one.

Thanks,

I made some guesses. It's "Glass."

No offense, but I've tried this. Twice. I don't see it in the list. That's why I asked for what it's called. That way, maybe I could find it from another way.

This might also apply to non-mandrake users, but this is how things are configured on my drake 9.0 system.

To avoid confusion, the .gtkrc file in my home directory is called .gtkrc-kde. The installation still works fine.

Thanks for bringing it over here.

.gtkrc-kde is the gtk file, when you select "Apply colors to non KDE Applications" in the colors module of Kcontrol

Using Red Hat 8.0 with unified BlueCurve on my laptop. This now allows me to keep a unified look on my RH 7.3 desktop box. Was using Bubbles-Revisited as the Gnome equivalent to Liquid, now no need to. KDE and Gnome playing happily together and looking similar. That's what open source love is all about.

not me. If you wish to thank the author, click on the download link and post your thanks on the freshmeat page.

BTW: Someone should vote bad. It can't be that the GTK copy is voted better than the orginial Liquid ;-)

In the "how to" it says to click on the import GTK button under look and feel > styles, There is no import GTK button, at least not on my Mdk9 distro, How do I get around this.

under KDE, at least in my system, you have to open the GNOME configuration window (it's under system-->configuration in SuSE) to select Gtk themes. i still haven't figured out how to change the colors, though.

hope this helps.

This is a classic example of why Gnome and KDE users should work together instead of trying to dominate each other. Now the desktop is capable of having a unified look. Excellent work.

For GTK. It's already included in Gnome2.0 I think. At least Suse 8.1 includes it.

In what package can I find it? I don't see it listed in my theme list in GNOME 2 in SuSE 8.1. I installed all of GNOME, installed SuSE Liquid RPM.

I'm not a fan of the Aqua/Liquid look (just not my preference), but thanks for providing the theme for those who like a little consistancy on their desktop.
And for anybody who's about to post, "But this is _KDE_-Look!" don't bother. I for one think it is a good idea to post GTK themes here if they match KDE themes. Makes life much easier.
Also, if anyone is curious, this is for GTK 1.2.
