GTK2 Themes

Description:

This style is inspired by eGTK by danrabbit. I have borrowed some parts to style Nautilus.

PANELS IN THE PREVIEW IMAGE ARE EMBEDDED IN THE WALLPAPERS AND WILL NOT LOOK LIKE THAT BY DEFAULT. READ THE TUTORIAL BELOW!

GTK engines required:
- The Murrine engine. (0.90.3+git20100323.)
- The latest Equinox engine - http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Equinox+Gtk+Engine?content=121881
- The Pixbuf/pixmap engine.

This style is currently designed around nautilus-elementary. I recommend that you install that. Otherwise you can use the included Zuki Classic Nautilus.

To correctly display the breadcrumbs in nautilus-elementary, go to Properties > Tweaks > Show like breadcrumbs and then restart Nautilus.

I recommend that you use a dock for this theme.

To open 7z files install the package p7zip.

To install this theme extract the included folders to:

/home/Your Username/.themes

or for all users:

/usr/share/themes

Then go to System->Preferences->Appearance and select it from the list. (For some reason this may not work. Just select the parts manually if it don't work.)
Or change the parts manually by clicking on the Customize button to select your preferred window border, icon and cursor theme.

HOW TO USE A CUSTOM PANEL

This is an optional step for more experienced customizers. This step may be very hard for beginners!

As you can see in my preview image I've added a custom panel. Gnome-panel unfortunately can't handle real transpareny without making it all look like a frellwit. We can work around this by embedding some graphics on our wallpaper, making it look like real transparency.
First of all, make sure you are using "Zuki Dark's" controls and widgets.

For this to work you need to have GIMP installed.
Ubuntu users - Open a terminal and type: sudo apt-get install gimp.
You also need a GIMP plugin call Liquid Rescale: sudo apt-get install gimp-plugin-registry
Other users - http://liquidrescale.wikidot.com/en:download-page-linux

### THE IMAGE ###

1. Locate the panel.png file in the archive.

2. Open the PNG-file in GIMP.

3. Go to Layer > Liquid Rescale.

4. Enter your screen width in the Width area and then resize the image.
(The "chain" icon next to the values needs to be "open". If it's locked, just click on it. It should be open by default though.)

5. Press CTRL+A (or Select > All.) Copy the image and paste it on your wallpaper of choice.
Important: Your wallpaper must have the same width and height as your desktop resolution.

6. Move the pasted layer to the top and then save your new wallpaper as whatever.png.

### THE PANEL ###

(Make sure your panel is set to 24px in height.)

1. Go to the directory where you installed the theme (Probably /home/username/.themes/Zuki Dark/)
Open the panel.rc file.

2. Put a # in front of bg_pixmap[NORMAL] so it will look like this:
#bg_pixmap[NORMAL] = "/Panel/panel-bg.png" # Disable for normal panel backgrounds.
Then save the document.

3. Rightclick on your panel and select properties. Go to the Background tab and select Solid color. Move the Style slider all the way to the left.

4. And you're done! Enjoy your fake transparent panel.

The only thing that not convinces me is the black text on prelight, anyway you did a great job.

I just want to say, thank you everyone, for the help, and to the artist!

Ps: I never get tired of saying, but why don't you guys put those instructions, in the description, for noobs like me ?

After all the hard work making the theme, a few instruction, could spare you all so much stupid comments like mine :D

When I run twf in a terminal I just get 2 warnings about GtkSpinButton. But I get that with all themes I've tested, so I guess it's just a bug in twf. I haven't noticed that it breaks anything.

As it always is. There are a lot of elementary themes out here and I have to say that yours is the only beautiful one - which is not difficult, from my point of view.
