the problem with installing theme with newest murrine should be fixed now! thx tksmashiw! - Jan 05 2009
ah good news!
how did u install it? what went wrong?
i always test my themes myself before publishing, but i am depending on those reports to know of errors i am not conscious of... - Jan 04 2009
i confess that i am also not quite satisfied with the scrollbar yet, but i was not satisfied with the old one either... i am trying to make a new one...
any suggestions welcome :) - Jan 04 2009
this is probably due to your murrine-engine-version. it should work with 0.5.6
but it def. will work with svn-version 0.6.
try if the theme 'dust' works on your machine.. if not than update your murrine-engine. good luck - Jan 03 2009
ha! yes, that is true!
they are flat.. i'll work on that and will be included on release 0.7, which i am working on very hard for some weeks now :)
- Dec 30 2008
ah, good news,
and yes you re right, dark is very challenging :)
thxss! - Dec 19 2008
hey, thanks for that hint, i never use pidgin, so i never saw that.
but it is fixed now!
I will upload it soon along with other fixes around weekend or begin next week..

the process-bar is too dark, that is true, like the scroll-bars it is an interim solution, but i am working on it..
and will be fixed in 0.7

if u see more i should know, just tell let me know!..

thank you very much for your review!

you are right: scrollbars have to be changed and they will. this is an interim solution till i got the time to do them with inkscape or with murrine, but the last things i tried were not nice. so this is indeed a weak point.

and yes, i am really trying hard to take care of nice contrasts, that is were the most work goes, but you will still find occasionally a semi-white button with white text, especially on web-sites,
i am working on it though and think to have fixed this issues with release version 0.7

thx for your time :)

if u could give me some debugging error output, than i could be of a much greater help!!
just do the following:
open the appearance-manager and switch to a working theme,
open a terminal and start gcalctool
open the appearance-manager and switch to the greyhound-theme
what do you read on the terminal?
paste that info here and i will be able to have a look..

also, my other question:
did u try other new murrine-themes, like dust? are they working on your sys?
- - Dec 18 2008
fixed and uploaded @ 22:45h CET - Dec 17 2008
ok, i think i fixed it.
there were some bleeding new murrine specific options that are infact not used in this theme, so i uncommented them. it should work now with standard murrine-engine.. if not please report. - Dec 17 2008
also, if you could open a terminal and from there start gcalctool (for example),
than change the theme to TheGreyHoundTheme and read in the terminal what it says?
- Dec 17 2008
it is my old one, but it always worked... and i did not change anything in the meantime...
the new version is 0.6.
can u pls try that one and tell me what happens?
thx - Dec 17 2008
i am uploading now a new version,
please check if that occurs with the new one..than i will try to help u.
thx - Dec 17 2008
I'm afraid i can't help on that one.
download link works fine here..
but than my location is in europe and you are in the usa? perhaps there is something wrong?
otherwise try another computer near you. perhaps something's wrong with your security-settingssss...!?

good luck - Dec 08 2008
hey, everything is just fine:
the tar is what you downloaded.
to install it you simply need to tell your theme-manager to install it by pointing to the file you downloaded, it will untar it and put the content under ~/.themes

otherwise just untar it yourself to /.themes

cheers - Dec 08 2008
hello, nice to hear that it is working for you.
the errors are connected to murrine-engines. i seem to have the latest actually, i just forgot that in the mean-time... that is why here i got no errors. but anyway, it is save to uncomment those options, they are not in use... i will include that in the next release around weekend.

thanks a lot! - Dec 08 2008
thanks for this info.
I checked arround and it looks like your error-message is coming from the "colorize_scrollbar" option, which is a feature of the newest murrine.

0.53 is old. in the newest ubuntu we have 0.6XXX installed because of dust and other new themes.

you would have therefore two choices:

1)uncomment the sentence nr.84 in gtkrc with a # like this:
# colorize_scrollbar = TRUE # FALSE = disabled, TRUE = enabled


2) get the newest murrine-engine from svn, this would open you the doors for lots of other new murrine-themes aswell:

before you follow this instructions, be aware that those are for ubuntu, but if you are a bit familiar it should show you the way aswell.. so do it with caution at your own risk:
you should uninstall your gtk2-engine-murrine 0.53 pckg. you should also have everything one needs to compile, like autoconf tools etcetc..

i highly recommend checkinstall instead of make install,
checkinstall keeps your system clean and you can easely find and uninstall your self-compiled packages under synaptic.

$ sudo apt-get install subversion build-essential libtool autoconf
libgtk2.0-dev checkinstall
$ mkdir development && cd development
$ svn checkout murrine
$ cd murrine
$ ./ --enable-animation --prefix=/usr
$ make
$ sudo checkinstall -D --fstrans=no
you need to go through the checkinstall-wizard inside the terminal and correct the name and version, otherwise it will abort.
it is very easy as the wizard is well done.
i named it "gtk2-engines-murrine" and set version to "0.6".
you will end up with a nice build and installed .deb package which you can uninstall at anytime via synaptic.

good luck

thx for your report,
i checked and it looks fine, i can not find an error... do you have the latest gtk2-engines-murrine? mine is version 0.6.
try to install them otherwise.. :)

running ubuntu intrepid. - Dec 07 2008
thank u very much!
the buttons are made by myself, i thought we need something new, not mac-ish not win-sh, not gtk-ish, etc...
they are basically transparent layers, which makes compatibility possible with any web-site or any app...
I am going to improve this theme more, just come back in the future! thx - Dec 01 2008
thank you! - Nov 30 2008

crtice because of ugly white shadows on insensitive text.
on white themes that does not matter so much, but it is ultra-ugly on dark themes. it is possible to remove them, check my theme! - Jan 05 2009

maybe you wanna help out than, as packaging needs some experience and you seem to have some...
this would solve 90% of current errors.. - Jan 04 2009
this is a good idea and could be a big relief for those not using ubuntu intrepid, since here murrine 0.6 comes as default. if you could make a .deb for other debians and older ubuntu-versions and 64bit, wow, than i would add a link and instead of answering to the people that are not able to install my theme on their box, with "you have to get the svn-version" i would simply point them the path to your package...
thx for your great idea!! - Jan 04 2009
