I have no recommendations for a cursor theme! I just use the old DMZ one. The oxy-white is ok. I'm really not a big fan of many cursor themes. A lot of them are too bulky or flashy for me.

Do you have any you like?

Glad you figured it out. Further back in the comments, someone else was having a problem with the breadcrumbs. The user FINux - he posted a picture.

Anyway, I couldn't help him... but he might have the same problem that you had. Maybe you could help him out?

- Darin - May 24 2010
It's just a suggestion, so don't worry too much about it, you didn't do anything wrong. It's just talking about the icon theme:

- Darin - May 24 2010
I wasn't sure that anyone paid attention to the tabs, haha. Cool! Thanks!

- Darin - May 24 2010
Hey, thanks for the help. I just updated with a new version that should fix it. Glad you enjoy it! Let me know what you think of the new one - if you like the changes or not.

Thanks again!

- Darin - May 21 2010
Ah, ok. Yeah, that's easy to do. If you've never used it before, you should definitely check out Gnome Color Chooser. It should be in the Ubuntu repositories (gnome-color-chooser).

With that you can change the gnome panel text colors, and all kinds of stuff. Anyway, hopefully that works for you.

- Darin - May 17 2010
Thanks a lot! I really appreciate that.

I'll probably put a newer version up here in the next day or so that will make a few of those things better.

For Panflute, it won't be bulky, but it won't have two different colors. I'll work on that for next time. I noticed several panel problems I'll try to fix next time.

For the grips, I left those out on purpose. I really don't like the grips, and when I first started I tried several different types, but couldn't get one I liked. I'll try it again next time and see how it goes. Thanks for the picture... I was going to ask how you got those shaky lines... I actually like how it looks, haha.

For the dark version of this theme... sorry, I don't think I'll make one. I would in the future like to make an entirely new theme that is specifically made to be dark. Any suggestions on some good dark themes I should take a look at (Linux or otherwise)?

I just took a screenshot and put it up on the Victory Elementary page where I changed the colors of this theme to dark.

I've tried to make it where the colors could be changed to dark and it still look ok. Have you tried that? And if so, what problems does it have? I'll try to fix whatever I can.

Thanks again for the feedback, and keep letting me know of any more ideas, or problems you have. I don't use dark a lot, so it's good if others can try it out and let me know. Thanks!

- Darin - May 17 2010
Sorry, I don't know anything else that might help. Under "style "nautilus"" you could try changing the xthickness, but I don't think that will work either, if the above didn't work.

Do normal themes that have buttons for the path bar look smashed together like that, too?

- Darin - May 16 2010
Glad you figured it out!

Hey, I hadn't heard of Ubuntuzilla, that's cool.

For the dark panel, if you're using Gnome, you can use gnome-color-chooser to pick colors of the panel text (plus all kinds of other things). It would be nice if Appearance Preferences allowed a few extra color options, like the panel... but it doesn't. Oh well. Gnome Color Chooser is nice.

Here's a link... it's also in the Ubuntu repositories I think. If not, it has a PPA on the site.

Anyway, thanks again, and let me know if you have any other problems or anything.

- Darin - May 16 2010
I'm not sure why it would do that. Does it happen when you open/save things, too, on that bar? Anyway, yeah, you could try editing the gtkrc. Try and see if this works:


style "nautilus-toolbar"

GtkButton::inner-border = {0, 13, 0, 0}

and try changing the 13 to something higher. Let me know if that helps or not, and thanks!

- Darin - May 08 2010
Thanks man!

- Darin - May 06 2010
Hmmm, I have no idea... sorry. Hopefully someone can help, though. What are you using? Distribution/Gnome Version/Nautilus Version?

- Darin - May 06 2010
Thanks a lot! I didn't even think to check Thunderbird (I don't know why), so thanks for bringing that up.

I can't do anything about that on my part. It is/was a Mozilla bug. Luckily, it's been fixed for the next version of Thunderbird. If you download Thunderbird 3.1 Beta, it should fix this.

If you use Ubuntu, here is the PPA for 3.1 Alpha. It's older, but it worked for me:

If you want the latest Thunderbird 3.1 Beta 2, it's on their site:

The same thing drove me crazy when I started this, since Firefox 3.5 is the same way (they fixed it in 3.6). Mozilla stuff doesn't theme the best, which is why the Toolbar buttons don't match the rest of the theme, and the scrollbars are a little different.

Anyway, I'm glad you like it! Thanks a lot for the comments, and let me know if you have any other problems or anything.

- Darin - May 06 2010
Yeah, I don't get it either. I tried, but couldn't figure it out. It's like the class Window should theme only the window. The Sidebar title/Pathbar/Statusgrip should be themed as widget, but it's like they're transparent.

The more I played around with it, the more weird things I found with Nautilus 2.30... which is why I had to make Elementary its own versions, because when you hide the Pathbar, it doesn't hide all the way. It leaves a few pixels as shadow. It's ugly.

Well, I hope it turned out decent, anyway. Let me know if it's ok, and if you figure anything out with that.

Thanks a lot for the help and everything.

- Darin - May 05 2010
For the icon slider, I was going to use the volume slider, but it would've made the statusbar bigger, and was kind of distracting. Let me know if you like how it turned out or not.

Thanks a lot for the input!

- Darin - May 05 2010
Thanks for trying. I appreciate the help. This is the best temporary solution I could figure out right now:

If you change everything under

style "nautilus-sidebar-title-text" to: @selected_bg_color

and everything under

style "nautilus-sidebar-title" to: @bg_color

It should help some. I don't think that will fix the icon size slider or Icon View button, but I'll have to look more at that when I get Lucid on here. Sorry! Let me know if that helps any.

- Darin - Apr 29 2010
Thanks! That's ok, don't worry about it. I'm glad you posted that picture, I wasn't even sure what it'd look like! Does the places bar look ok? I tried Nautilus 2.30 just on a Lucid 10.04 Live CD, and it was much worse than that. It does some weird stuff.

I posted about it here:

Once I get Lucid on here, I'll try to make a new version for it. But Picture 4 in that thread may be as good as I can get 2.30.

Thanks again!

Murrine GTK+ Engine for Fedora

Hey, this is awesome. Thanks a lot! I used this to try a theme out to see how it looked on Fedora.

Just one comment/question. In the Ubuntu package (git20100323), checkboxes and radio buttons in menus look like this:

But with any previous build in Ubuntu, or using this Murrine build on Fedora, they are bubbly and colored in with the selected background color. I didn't think to take a screenshot when I was using it, I apologize. But it's similar to this:

I didn't know if this is something I messed up or could change on my part with an option through gtkrc or what.

Anyway, thanks again. This helped me out a lot, and I really enjoyed Fedora. I'll have to try it more.
