Description:

This theme is a collaboration between me and Ceebeebg whose mock up was the initial inspiration behind Atolm:
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Mock+up+-+Proposal?content=136369

You will need the murrine, pixbuf and equinox gtk engines to use this theme. The AwOken icon theme is also highly recommended as is Nautilus Elementary.

Installation :

PPA :

Make sure you have uninstalled any older versions of the theme before installing via ppa. For good measure type on a terminal :

rm -R ~/.themes/Atolm

to install the Equinox gtk engine (provided by Tiheum) :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox

to install Atolm :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atolm-theme

to install the Atolm xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install atolm-xfwm4-decorators

to install the Atolm emerald decorator :

sudo apt-get install atolm-emerald-decorators

Manual Installation :

just extract the contents of the zip file somewhere and drag and drop the Atolm.tar.gz and Atolm-Squared.tar.gz to the Appearance Preferences window (again, make sure you have uninstalled any previous version first). You can also install the emerald theme via the Emerald Theme Manager.

Customization :

If you prefer the old tabs, edit the gtkrc file (found inside ~/.themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ or /usr/share/themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ if you have installed via ppa) and replace the line :
include "Styles/tabs1.rc"
with this:
include "Styles/tabs.rc"

If you don't use Nautilus Elementary, edit the gtkrc and make this line:
include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"
look like this:
#include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"

OpenOffice and most other Gtk apps now have a different base and text color than the rest of the theme. This is unavoidable if you want to have a usable OpenOffice. If you want to have a unified look, you can make all Gtk apps follow the same settings by setting the Input Boxes background color to 5C5C5C and the Input Boxes text color to ECECEC.

Thanks :

I would like to thank my partner in crime, MonkeyMagico, JurialMunkey for his valuable feedback and advice, and all of you that keep supporting my work

Your PPA goes in just fine but wont update for 12.04. I would love to check out your work but can't because I can't download it from the PPA.

in thunderbird ( http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/9/selection001d.png/ ) the email headers show like in the screenshot. one by one lines are very dark in background so that the text becomes almost unreadable.

anyone knows which file do i have to edit to specify a lighter gray for the second color?

(the "detailed list" view in thunar uses another set of colors and doesnt have this problem..)

I have had the same problem/complaint. I have tried a few times to edit Thunderbird's userChrome.css file to achieve acceptable formatting, but have never been successful... Would you mind posting the specific code you used for yours, and the version of Thunderbird you are running?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 having followed all directions and double checked that the engines where installed, I can't get it to work either -- I have the same problem as slaykristian.

I've run through the tips you gave him, but it didn't have and effect. Help is much appreciated -- I really like the preview of the theme, and would love to get it to work.

Please let me know if there is any information I can provide that will facilitate things.

Kind regards,
Rasmus

Since you are on 10.04 you probably need a newer version of murrine as well.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:murrine-daily/ppa
and update murrine, this should do the trick.

What is the dock you're using?

It's awn.

Thanks SkiesOfAzel.. I installed awn but could not get the edges to look like your sceenshot. Is there a theme that I should to apply for that?

Another question, can these edges be applied on the normal gnome panel? I currently use it as a dock by un-expanding it and increasing the size to 50 pixels.

I've noticed that the edges of the gnome panel change slightly from theme to theme but I'm not sure if it can be altered to look like the one in the screenshot.

part of the problem might be the line "sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox" doesn't find and install the equinox engine. it didn't for me.

Report

That is an indication that the tiheum equinox ppa isn't properly added to your sources list. Repeat the steps:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
and then retry:

sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox

In my ubuntu, your theme doesn't function!
Orta is ok, but Atolm is like "GNOME theme" with gray windows and gray rectangular buttons.

Why???
I can't understand!
Help!!!
Bye!

The murrine and equinox gtk engines are probably not installed:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox gtk2-engines-murrine

and restart your session.

How did you install the theme, via ppa or manually?

Report

I tried before manually and after by ppa.
Before the installation by ppa I delete /.themes/Atolm ...
The result is the same!


I follow the instruction in your deviantdart's page, but nothing!

(Thanks!)
