Description:

dwerg is a GTK theme named after, well. Myself. It was inspired by a trillian skin made by Everaldo, he was so kind to let me use the design.

The code of the engine was based on the Cleanice for GTK 2.0, currently it's a complete rewrite. So you've guessed it, this is a GTK 2 skin.

Hi,

I love your theme, very bright and simple ! But there are 2 bugs I found and one which is quite annoying : the progressbar in firefox is totally messed ! See http://jackmort.free.fr/bug_progressbar.png
The same bug is visible in the little progressbar appearing while loading a page, but I couldn't be fast enough to catch it !

Another little bug shows within thunderbird : it's hard to explain, but see these too images...

It would be really great if you could solve this :-D

Yes, I know. It's a thorn in my eye. Firefox and other mozilla related programs (basically all xul based programs) have the nasty habit of calling gdk directly instead of through the gtk theme. This is visible in the menu (lines all over the place, shadows where they shouldn't be) and progressbar (screwed up height in the call to the drawing function).

I've been trying to reverse-engineer what's happing here and looking for a simple remedy, so far not much luck.

I recommend you change 2nd and 3rd screenshots. Are you bragging that you pirate mp3s and movies?

Thanks for the kind words. I'm currently recoding the engine to make it a little bit faster and a lot cleaner.

I don't think the engine crashes anything, but it could be some strange bug.

This theme is ridiculousely underrated. I haven't even installed it yet, but the screenshots can tell me it's a beaute.

Hrm this is odd ive downloaded your theme from about 3 different places with both phoenix and with wget but no matter what when i try to tar -xzf or gunzip it it says its not in gzip format. Anyone else getting this?

Mmm, it looks like it was in .tar.bz2 format. I had the same problem on themes.freshmeat... It's fixed now.

Thanks for the warning.

Great work sir. To me, the "Light Style, 2nd Revision" that comes with kde is close to everaldo's Trillian skin. Maybe a peek at that code will get you a jump-start. I think the style is part of the base kde package.

Thanks for the suggestion, I was in the process of doing just that.

You've done a nice work making Everaldo's idea real. This style rules! Why don't you port it to QT too? it would be wonderful to have KDE looking so nice!

Just a question... what are the fonts you are using in the screenshots? i really like them and how they look with the style.
Please, can you send them to me? My email address is syrius84@lycos.it

Thanx a lot!!

The font is verdana, it's one of the fonts from the standard microsoft font pack. You can find it on sourceforge.net.

I'm currently looking at the documentation of writing my own widget style for QT/KDE, but I'm having some problems with automake so I can't compile anything yet :(

IMHO, the large number of GTK+ themes on this site only points out the fact that QT is WAAAY too hard to theme for most users. Any chance of a "pixmap engine" for QT that will allow non-programmers to generate themes?

An ever bigger problem is that I can't even find documentation on how to write widget style, so even programmers can't create a theme for KDE.

Easy:
http://doc.trolltech.com/3.1/qstyle.html
And
http://developer.kde.org/documentation/library/3.0-api/classref/kdefx/KStyle.html


Nonetheless, it's *really* hard. Much harder than Qt 2.x

Programming any KDE/Qt stuff is soo easy as there loads of good docs / examples. Why not just take an existing KDE/Qt style and modify it to be more what you like? This is what I did for QtCurve - I hated R*dHat's abonible KDE style, so I enhanced it. Creating a sensible gtk theme is *much* harder - even simple pixmap themes (most of these are the same - just different pixamps). I found it really difficult/impossible to find *any* decent gtk and gtkrc documentation.

Looks pretty.. ehm.. flat.. :)

Will you you also send this theme to art.gnome.org and/or themedepot.org ?
