Murrina Crystal

Why not :) It's a good idea to name it crystalux.
So, lux is a dark and flat theme, I'm currently working on another dark one, so called murrina midnight. If you like, you can use the code and creat your own LUX.

Actually, it's not that hard to understand, I've put some comments in it, but you might want to take a look at the theme tutorials @ gnome live first:
http://live.gnome.org/GnomeArt/Tutorials/GtkThemes/

Good luck with Murrina CrystaLux! - Jan 15 2009
It's DejaVuSansCondensed, 12pt. - Jan 15 2009
So 2 pixels look good, will upload soon.
thanks very much! - Jan 15 2009
it is 4 pixels away from the border, I don't have rhythmbox handy, you can test it for me:
edit gtkrc, find GtkTreeView::horizontal-separator = 8, change it between 2 and 8.
please tell me which number looks better. - Jan 15 2009
You mean glowstyle = 3 and glow_shade = 2.0 for the theme MurrinaCrystalLine (I admit this name is kinda stupid)? - Jan 15 2009
That's my fault, will be fixed soon. - Jan 15 2009
People say that first impressions are strongest... just kidding. I think it didn't change that much since the first release, except for the lighter bg, 2 new button styles and some other minor changes, oh and a new human theme. - Jan 15 2009
No problem, I'll add useful comment in the gtkrc. - Jan 14 2009
Sorry, I don't know how to creat a metacity theme, but I can recommend you two nice metacity themes, one is unity, it should be on your disk, the other is aurora, included in the official aurora engine. - Jan 14 2009
Thank you!
The icons are hydroxygen, a really wonderful gnome port of oxygen from kde. - Jan 14 2009
Do you mean "tool-bars" or anything else? - Jan 13 2009
Noticed, seems not a gtkrc bug, but a engine bug. Could you please send Cimi a bug report? - Jan 12 2009
No, I don't think so. As far as I know, not any of the engines except pixmap can do it. If you like a gradient/glossy menu (not menu item), try to replace murrine with pixmap, and create a nice bg picture as well. There're plenty of themes using pixmap engine. Not that difficult, but I won't add a second engine here. - Jan 12 2009
I think I understand what your point is, the background of menus are white, it does not fit well with human colors.
Could do this for me to testify whether it's the very thing you need, it's simple:

Edit gtkrc, go to the line 347 and replace @base_color with shade (1.05, @bg_color), and save it.

If it looks fine, new revision will be uploaded. - Jan 12 2009
Thanks for your nice word.
The principal is to provide a bright, yet usable and good looking theme.
However as someone requested before, I may also work on a dark theme some day. - Jan 12 2009
Do you mean that menus background should be darker or akin to the normal bg? - Jan 12 2009
OK... will do it tomorrow. - Jan 10 2009
Thanks for the comment.

I'm making it a little bit lighter right now ...

And I totally agree with the "problematic" thing, tried before, don't know how far MurrinaCrystalMidnight would go ;)

I can try but I don't promise, keep tuned. - Jan 10 2009
Good idea, I'll have a try. - Jan 10 2009
I just derived the colors from the human theme of ubuntu.
As for the menus, some people say it looks good and consistent with progress bars and scrollbars but YMMV. I can make it not so glossy, like other murrine themes do, no idea which styles you may prefer. - Jan 10 2009
True, it's more beautiful than I thought. Thanks for your mod, it'll be included in the next version. - Jan 09 2009
To be honest, I don't like the ubuntu-color very much, changing the default theme to sth I preferred is the first thing I would do when I installed my ubuntu box each time.
However, to change the colors of this theme is quite easy via the gnome-appearance-properties. - Jan 04 2009
Em, so you are not a curve lover ;)
you may change glazestyle to 0 in the button section for that. I'm thinking about uploading an extra theme. - Jan 04 2009
It's not an error, just a warning of using some deprecated gtk feature. ask the author of twf or make a patch. - Jan 03 2009
Changed, how about now? - Jan 01 2009
Do you mean the "gtk toggle button"? - Jan 01 2009
Alright, since you guys hate the WIP one, I won't make it.
I just played with gradient_shades option, and it was fun, will upload newer version today, hope you like it.
Happy new year! - Dec 31 2008
You r quite welcome :)
And thanks for the bug report, I'll upload fixed theme in a minute! - Dec 30 2008
It's ok, would you please paste a screenshot somewhere?
To be honest, Evolution is one of those who don't make full use of gtk features, e.g. firefox, openoffice. Thus, someone would hack on gtkrc files to get rid of such annoying problems.

OK, I just found a workaround in one of Cimi's Murrina theme: add
[code]# Workarounds for Evolution
widget_class "*.ETable.ECanvas" style "theme-tree"
widget_class "*.ETree.ECanvas" style "theme-tree"[/code]
to the bottom of gtkrc.
Please let me know it works, cuz I don't use evolution. - Dec 30 2008
em, you may submit a feature request to Cimi, I think. - Dec 30 2008
The same here, I'll upload fixed one soon. - Dec 30 2008
Hey, I'm an Archer,too :)
You can find the gtkrc problems by run
any gtk application in your terminal, it will point out which line is wrong.
Actually, this gtkrc does has some wrong option names due to the latest updates, will fix it later. - Dec 30 2008
That is DejaVuSansCondensed. - Dec 30 2008
Thank you guys, glad you all like it (and voted it good, too;-)), Murrina Crystal is ATM in its alpha state, I promise it will get better.

And also thanks Cimi for your awesome engine, can't make this happen without your hard work. - Dec 30 2008
Can't be better, thx!
Happy new year, man. - Dec 29 2008

Well...that may not happen, since aurora is meant for gradient not "crystal".
I've no idea whether ECHM would add such kind of feature.
Anyway, gradient is good, isn't it? - Jan 03 2009
We finally get a new year's update for aurora engine. It brings us some new features along with many bug fixes.

As a result, this theme also needs a modification. It won't be long, I promise. - Jan 02 2009
See Note in my description.
you need to patch your aurora engine. - Nov 16 2008
1. you'll have to install pixmap engine and mv scrollbar.png etc. to a certain dir, do some hacks to this gtkrc, it may take time.

2. try aurora smooth1 or choose other engines. - Nov 16 2008
You can try adjusting glow height via emerald-theme-manager, 24 might be suitable for your case. - Oct 22 2008
I know, it looks weird unless you choose aurora smooth1.
It won't be fixed until someone kind enough to get aurora engine hacked. - Aug 23 2008
Thank you.
Just extract aurora source and run
patch -Np0 -i aurora.patch
in your terminal, be careful of the path. - Aug 10 2008
甘露同学?这个恐怕只能hack源代码了,或者你用其他的引擎。 - Aug 05 2008
from line 173 to 186, switch theme-xxx to a larger size, for example, replace "slim" by "wide", etc. - Aug 01 2008
jump to the 4th line of gtkrc:
gtk-icon-sizes = "panel-menu=16,16:panel=16,16:gtk-button=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=22,22"
change 22,22 to any size you want. - Aug 01 2008
Thank you.
That's the very reason I call it "aurora smooth". Because choosing this typical size is the only way to avoid not so smooth handles on the scrollbars.
But of cause you can change it to your satisfaction. - Jul 13 2008

But I got this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):

if not os.access(urllib.unquote(sel_items[0].get_parent_uri()[7:]), os.W_OK):

It's archlinux with python 2.6. It still works though.

BTW, if I translate those msgs to chinese, it refuses to work unless I add:
# -*- Mode: python; coding: utf-8; -*-

Keep it up ^_^ - Oct 23 2008
