This is a very nice and simple theme. Would you like to add an XFCE theme?

I don't know how to theme XFwM4, I use LXDE (so Openbox as WM). Sorry.

As I looked for it, theming XFWM4 is made of some xpm formatted pixmaps and a themerc file. I could try to do it, but I don't have any artistic vein, so I need the pictures and the description of how it would look.

The only thing I can do is give you the Open-Murrine-Seasons link to look at the WM themes: http://box-look.org/content/show.php/Open-Murrine-Seasons?content=140811

v1.4 still not working. Synaptic package shows that Murrine 0.98.1.1 is installed.

Sorry but I am going to give up on this theme.

Lamda-Mod
http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Lambda-Mod?content=141058

This theme also requires the same Murrina engine. I uncompress and copy it to /usr/share/themes and it works right away (It shows up in System / Preferences / Appearance).

Hope you can review it and figure out the issue in MurrinaSeasons 1.4

As I can see, Lambda-Mod is one Gnome theme but MurrinaSeasons are several GTK+ themes in one archive.
cwchien uses XFCE and MurrinaSeasons works fine so if MurrinaSeasons doesn't work in ~/.themes or /usr/share/themes with correct permisions, I think the problem come from Gnome or 64 bits platform.
I will test as soon as possible on Linux Mint Gnome 32 bits version to know more (I don't have 64 bits machine)...

Hi,

I have the same trouble with Triceratops.
When I apply 1.3 or 1.4, the theme doesn't rendered so that it looks like plain gtk UI.

Screenshot:

But 1.2 works fine.

FYI,
OS: Debian Squeeze
gtk2-engines: 2.20.1-1
murrine-engines: 0.90.3-2

Thanks.

Dark version 1.3, 1.4 don't work, neither.

BTW,
Desktop: XFCE

I understand now (I think). I missed one important thing : latest Murrine engine (http://www.cimitan.com/murrine/engine) is required (now it is 0.98.1.1 version) !

Finally, I figured out.

I cloned the git murrine source and manually compile / install it.

Then restart the X window, it works!

Hi,

What is the application that you use to preview and install the theme as shown in the screenshot?

I find these colors of this theme too vivid and they stand out too much, causing distraction on a long run. Can you make another variation with same colors but darker tones?

Thanks

That's the theme selection dialog from Openbox & LXDE.

lxappearance-obconf (http://blog.lxde.org/?p=788), LXAppearance with OpenBox integration.
This plugin is enabled if you run OpenBox (it is the case running LXDE).

Oh may it the dark version is included in the download but you didn't update the screenshot?

I tried to install but how?
Drop the *.bz2 file in the Appearance windows got an error (not a theme). Unzip and copy to /usr/share/themes doesn't work either. The them doesn't show in Appearance.

Is it compatible with Gnome? Sorry for the silly question but can you give some basic instructions to install?

Darker varations are included in the archive.
Is your problem due to permissions ?
