Description:

MurrinaCrystal theme, based on the great murrine engine (SVN) only.

Please leave a comment if you must vote bad, so that I can improve it, thanks in advance!

Note: The latest Murrine engine from SVN/GIT or Ver. 0.90.2+ is highly recommended!

Thank Suraia for packing the murrine engine (svn) for ubuntu.

And for Archers, you will find gtk-engine-murrine-git/gtk-engine-murrine in the AUR/Community repo.

Hi, it's still on my todo list. I'm quite busy these days, I'm not so sure about the release date. Sorry for the long delay.

How do you achieve this coloured button focus ?
The default Murrine engine button focus is a dark line underlining the text inside a button, and it's ugly, but your coloured focus is cool.
Can you enlight me please ?

Hi, the line is removed by setting:
GtkWidget::focus-line-width to 0.

Thanks alot for that.
One more thing: how do you define the colour of the focus ?
I know it's related to selected_fg_color but isn't there a way to set it independently ?

For example: focus_color = @bg_color
and the it can use "#xxxxxx" as well.

I suggest that you do diff between the one you modified and mine. I think it might be format related issue.

You mean the gtkrc? It should be located in ~/.themes/MurrinaCrystal*/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.

THANKS! I followed those instructions, but i could not make it look like your third image, and it still looks greyish, while other things changed. is my murrine engine not working fully?

I'm not sure unless you show me a screenshot. The third one is a theme called MurrinaCrystalGlossyToolbar, you don't have to change your gtkrc.

Please post your human-theme here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Artwork/Incoming/Jaunty

the ubuntu-artwork-team would be very stupid if they dont use your human-theme for the coming ubuntu jaunty jackalope. for the artwork-deadline is still one week and your theme seems to have no bugs at all. please post it! a lot of ubuntu-users would be happy to see such a modern theme as the ubuntu-default!
