E17 Liquid Mythril

GTK2 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net



It is updated. Please leave feedback. This is totally based on BVC's work as well as jedi-master(skinning portion). I just modified a png and married the gtkrc file. I'll be doing some more custom work as needed but but at the moment, it all works fine.

install instruction.
Please note that it uses the Aurora Engine so reffer to this page before advancing

INSTALL manually, NOT with the theme manager.
1. right click on tar file and extract here.
2. in terminal do a "sudo nautilus /usr/share/themes" without parenthesis and drag and drop the E17-GTK-liquid-mythril-1.0 folder into this directory which is the themes. close it and now change your controls and window border in appearance preferences-theme->custom. for the panel, place the e17-silver-panel-2560x28-px.png into a safe place and right click on panel->properties->background->background image and choose the e17-silver-panel-2560x28-px.png in the location where you placed it.

The panel can be resized using gimp and use lanczos interpolation. it is in image->scale image(don't forget to remove the constraint ratio link). resize to 1024x28 and up. Keep the 28 because this size works best for 25pixel size on the panel of gnome.

I'd wish to try it on my desktop.

One of the best metal themes I've seen, hope it will be avaiable soon.
By the way, your conky config is amazing, would you mind to share it?

Thanks. The theme is pretty much done. All I need to do is type out instructions and tar it up for distribution. I'll post the conky script with fonts and instructions at the same time. Most likely by tomorrow, it will be up.

here is the script but you also need a few details in configuration.

First off, download these fonts.
from this site or more. http://www.dafont.com/

now we need to follow this next step to install the fonts into ubuntu.
System Wide:
Once you have downloaded and unpacked your font files (.ttf, .TTF), we just need to move them to the font directory:
# sudo cp *.ttf /usr/local/share/fonts/
# sudo cp *.TTF /usr/local/share/fonts/
Run the following command to rebuild the font cache:
# sudo fc-cache -f -v

and now for my current conky script. I have different variations including bars for the drives but I figured I wanted it as minimalistic as possible. I even had temperature gauges that animated and weather as well.
