you can already have that.. there are instructions inside the gtkrc file, thinks like scrollbar colors, sizes and gloss of all widgets can be adjusted usually by editing one or two lines. the file tells you what each line or setting does, so you just need to read the instructions in blue. as for the tabs, there's no way to change them without using pixmaps, and depending too much on them might hinder the flexibility in color choices. - Apr 20 2008

ok, I added a dark panel option... just open the gtkrc file, and in the panel section uncomment the lines it tells you to. It's just a quick hack, and if you don't like the panel background, it at least lightens the fonts so you can use your own custom dark panel. - Apr 19 2008

I'm glad you like it, I don't think I can maintain another set of themes (since I have 3 themes and 8 variations per) but I might add an option for dark panels inside the file, so you can get them by just uncommenting two or three lines. - Apr 19 2008

I experimented on an aurora version, but since it uses gradient and glossy widgets in such a strange combination, I would have to use too many pixmaps to get the native linux look I wanted.. and the aurora engine is already a bit slow before adding pixmaps into the equation. For now I'm just waiting for clearlooks to get even better or murrine to release a new stable version before doing anything major. - Apr 17 2008

Distrofy Gimp Plugin

Gimp Splashes by sleepynate 15 comments

I don't particularly like distro-branded-chick wallpapers, but the simplicity and flexibility of this plugin is pure win. Maybe it needs simpler instructions for non-technical users, or more color options but that'd just be icing on the cake. - Apr 15 2008

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 87 comments

thanks for commenting, (detailed) feedback will most certainly help the theme.
I've tested the theme in 4 boxes and haven't noticed problems with icons, or at least any that couldn't be fixed by re-downloading, (Sometimes the archive manager or firefox's cache give you outdated versions) and logging out after upgrading the theme.

Since the new version specifies the maximum size for gtk buttons as well, maybe it's not compatible with your generated icons.. try commenting out line # 2, "gtk-icon-sizes = ..." and see if it fixes your problem. This will also return buttons to their original sizes.

With your input, I'll bring back old style menu-items on the light themes. I don't really notice the difference in the dark themes, so those will stay the same.

If I have some time later I'll try to include more instructions and options within the file, make the changes I mentioned above, and try to include wallpapers, GDM, etc in one package. - Apr 13 2008

I think the link to the big version isn't working, maybe you can fix it. Also, I updated my wallpapers with a 1600x1200 version, I hope this can help you with supporting non-wide resolutions. - Apr 13 2008

I already added some workarounds for pidgin in the latest version (although received messages are still dark). I also changed link colors in some apps, but I haven't found a way to do so in all apps, maybe someone here knows the code that can help? - Apr 11 2008

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 97 comments

Thanks for letting me know, I looked into this but apparently it's not a theme issue. I installed that icon pack, and the buttons were misaligned in nautilus and firefox with every theme. The issue is that the back button doesn't have the same height placement as the forward button, like this: http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/3448/screenshotko0.png

You should let the author of that icon theme know, so he can fix it. - Apr 10 2008

You can do so by enabling the GTK+ theme control plugin in pidgin. I might add the colors for links/pidgin text in next version, but I need to decide which colors look best first. - Apr 09 2008

thanks! sharing, and people appreciating what I contribute is what motivates me to keep doing so. I was thinking more along the lines of "So, here we have a decent, simple, high-resolution wallpaper.. should I really go through the hassle of searching for a new one just because i feel like using a blue/green/red theme today?" - Apr 08 2008

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 97 comments

I'm glad you like it. I know which glitch you're talking about, but it shouldn't appear by default. I've only noticed it whenever the glow height is changed to something not "x.5".. so 3.5, 4.5, or 5.5 are OK. - Apr 08 2008

that is an emerald bug that happens on windows already opened when you switch from a normal theme to a righty one. just close all windows, or restart emerald after selecting your theme. alt + f2 "emerald --replace" does the trick. - Apr 06 2008

I think implementing that idea in gnome would be great, but I don't think having a unified metacity theme gets in the way of things. usually, people will intuitively click on the title or use alt + click to move windows. Also, there is always the option of using clearlooks' window borders, which used to be the default until recently. - Apr 02 2008

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 87 comments

You could say that. I made my themes like this so people could easily adjust them to their preferences. Although I would recommend that you only change 2 boxes:
for example, if you want a brown color-scheme, you would put a darker brown in Selected Items Background, and a lighter brown in the Tooltips Background. This should take care of everything. - Apr 01 2008

lol, same as the other thread:
i have no plans for more colors, but you can make one in about 10 seconds.

1. Open appearance preferences.
2. Select any of my themes.
3. Click customize > colors
4. Change Selected items to dark brown (or other color)
5. Change Tooltips to light brown (or other color)

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 87 comments

I'm glad you found a fix! btw, the theme doesn't contain any title bars, the metatheme just points to clearlooks' metacity. The active titlebar background is always a bit darker than the selected background (orange,green,blue,etc) and any transparencies are taken from your gtk-window-decorator settings. - Mar 27 2008

You could say that. I took the theme layout from hardy's "Human-Murrine" as a base, and then ported the colors and modifications of my "Clearlooks Human" theme. Both themes are meant as lighter, nicer alternatives to ubuntu's default themes. - Mar 26 2008

GTK2 Themes by perfectska04 97 comments

It can be reversed, there is a section called "theme-button" inside the theme, you can change the colors there.. but then all the other buttons in the theme would be darker as well. - Mar 26 2008
