Scaled Black : Murrina

GTK2 Themes by twigsby 17 comments

I prefer the theme with fuller scrollbars, but if you open the gtkrc in /home/YOURUSERNAME/.themes/MurrinaScaled/gtk-2.0 and then go to line 15 and alter the value of;
GtkRange ::slider_width = 15
to something more preferable for your needs. - Jul 05 2007

blahrus & Chrissss : I've pinpointed what is causing your problems and should have an update shortly...

MarineForce : Yes, it's Calibri. It's set at 8 pixels, the smoothing is set to Grayscale and hinting at None.

Ones that don't match too well at the moment. :S Window decorator is Scaled Black under Helidor through Beryl, and the KDE scheme is a Qtcurve attempting to mimic the Murrine engine. Bit of a mish-mash really. - Nov 15 2006

It is, but then the image repeats vertically as well and it end up looking like the import window of f-spot. I've got a little work-around for it at the minute though where the image is ridiculously long (about 3000px) with a high border range.

I'm not seeing any performance degradation because of this either (the file size only incresed by about 6 bytes.)

Also, could you tell me what you mean about the re-size widget? I'm not too sure what you're refering to. - Mar 01 2006

I'll probably create another gtk theme in the suite then. One that is more retro, and the other which leans towards being a little more modern.

Cheers. - Mar 01 2006

Thanks for the feedback!

I'll have a look at everything you've mentioned. Though the dashed lines have been a bit of a problem from the beginning because of the way the engine stretches images. I'm still trying to find a way around that.

Thanks again. :) - Mar 01 2006

I think I know what you mean. I like the way the buttons and highlights turned out, but I'm not too sure about tabs and the notebook.

Or is there something else? :D - Feb 28 2006

I tried changing broder size but it made no difference. I didn't know there was a tile option.

The problem is on the menubar where if a window is maximised the dashed lines are more obvious (and the way i'd prefer them to look) but as the window is smaller then the menubar gets shrunken horizontally and the dashes become dots, or just a line.

Setting it to not stretch works fine horizontally, but vertically it repeats as well and it looks horrible.

No biggy, though.

Thanks. - Feb 22 2006

haha. thanks. though there's no match that i'm aware of, just more nice themes for everyone. ;)

i've only edited about 8 of the scaable icons, i can upload those for you if you like. i think adding the whole set for a few different icons would be silly. - Feb 22 2006

Well, this is odd.

I decided to make this theme after seeing Gray here on Gnome-Look, I liked the overall look, but the buttons and colour scheme wern't to my liking so I decided to alter it too be much more to my preference.

To be honest I had no intention at all of even releasing this when I started, but after spending a few hours on it and delving into the theme code I thought, what the hell, someone might like it so why not.

So here we are, I credited cimi86 when I first uploaded the theme, but didn't include his theme's name, he asked me to change this and put the theme it was built upon in the description, hardly unreasonable I thought, so I went ahead and did it. Now, I had no idea his theme was also built upon someone elses until reading all of this just now.

I have no problem giving credit where it's due, I gave Cwiiis credit for helping find so many problems I'd introduced into the theme, and now I'll add Lokheed to the description too.

I havn't finished with this by a longshot, There's still bugs and inconsistencies that I want to address, but so far I've just fighting the good fight with the pixmap engine.

Anyway... I'll get back to The GIMP now. - Feb 16 2006

Not too sure why this could be happening, it's the first I've heard of it.

If possibel could you run

metacity-theme-manager Black

In a console and tell me what errors it spits up, also try running the benchmark. It comes up as 3.3 on my machine. - Feb 15 2006

Thanks.

I'm in the process of modifying the Humilty theme to better fit the colour scheme, hopefully this will be good match.

The Graphite Icon theme by lokheed goes well with the colours, though the version I have is a little incomplete.

I'll uplioad the background for people. :) - Feb 14 2006

Thanks, hopefully the two issues you mentioned are also related to the same issue with buttons in nautilus' directory list thingy.

Should be fixed soon. - Feb 14 2006

Hmm, did you have any error installing the theme? It turns out I set the archive up wroing and it wasn't overwriting the old theme. (re-uploaded now though)

If not, have you tried killing gnome-panel and nautilus? That got me a few times. - Feb 13 2006

Maybe. I have all my fonts set to size 8 with the window title in bold.
