Description:

A very loose adaptation of Symphony, now in two versions: Default & Round Buttons.

Shows off some of the features of the new murrine engine, such as:

* Flat menubar, gradient toolbar for ultra blendy goodness
* Round sliders
* Smooth, integrated, handle-less scrollbars
* Gradients on buttons, scrollbars, menus and list selections
* Et cetera ;)

The previously packaged metacity has been modified further and moved to its own page. Links to that and other appropriate themes are provided below.

Requires SVN version of murrine.

== CREDITS ==

* GTK+ was based on the proposed Ubuntu Human-Murrine Dark (from the official package).
* Colors were based on Symphony.
http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Symphony?content=68038
* Cimi, of course.

Hi, i really like your theme, i'm using it right now. I have a question for you, is it possible to put stripes in the menubar? i tried editing the file, changing the value for menubarstyle to 3, but it doesn't work.

Thank You :)

Yes, it's possible. Apart from changing menubarstyle, you also need to comment line 43: "GtkMenuBar :: Shadow-type = GTK_SHADOW_NONE"

Please consider adding an Ubuntu package for Murrina. I'm on Hardy and I've tried compiling the SVN version of Murrina but it gives me errors. Your theme looks great and I really want to try it.

Cimi, the creator of Murrine, has stated that he doesn't want any .debs floating around before a stable release.

That said, I think there are .debs around.

This theme was intended as a showcase, more than anything else. Be a little patient and you'll be flooded with a host of almost identical murrine themes as in the past :)

love it! And, don't take this is as an insult, but for some reason it really reminds me of office 2007 :p

Actually, I started to work on this theme after using the new MS office on someone else's PC. I liked the soft blue background but the rest is too glossy for my taste.

The colours in this theme are derived from the Symphony theme which, I presume, is inspired by IBM's Symphony:

Words can't express how impressed I am with these new features. More new themes based on this, more I say!

I only just now pieced together that you're the original author of Symphony and Soffice.
