Equinox Evolution themes
GTK2 Themes
Description:

Five GTK and Metacity themes to use with Equinox GTK engine 1.40 and Faenza icon theme.

To enable breadcrumbs in Nautilus Elementary, uncomment the following line at the end of each gtkrc file :

#include \"apps/nautilus-elementary.rc\"


To enable support of global menu, uncomment the following line at the end of each gtkrc file:

#include "apps/globalmenu.rc"


To use global menu with Equinox Evolution Midnight, you have to switch your metacity theme to the Equinox Evolution Dawn one from gnome-appearance-properties.

Known issues

Equinox Evolution
By default, the menu of Network Manager Applet does not appear in dark.
You can enforce this behaviour from the gnome-session-properties application. Locate the item corresponding to the Network Manager and change its command line from :
nm-applet --sm-disable

To:
bash -c \'GTK2_RC_FILEs=/usr/share/themes/Equinox\\ Evolution/gtk-2.0/apps/nm-applet.gtkrc nm-applet --sm-disable\'

Of course, you may change the path above if the Equinox Evolution theme is installed into your personnal folder (~/.themes).

Equinox Evolution Midnight
Gnome does not support well dark themes, so you may experiment:
* Some ugly controls in HTML forms with Firefox (but you can use Chrome/Chromium insteed)
* A dark background in all you OpenOffice/LibreOffice documents (but you can force the default background color of windows and documents in the application\'s options).
* Evolution appears particulary ugly: there is a hard-coded color value for the header of the left sidebar, treeview/list headers are displayed in dark, etc.
* Probably many other...

Changelog:

I use Equinox Evolution Dawn and had issues with some applets like panflute. It didn't happen on 1.40, so looking at the diff file I believe you forgot the entry

widget "*PanelApplet*" style "theme-panel"

around line 526 at gtkrc file

thanks for the great theme!

Got a few issues with Equinox Evolution Dawn with Ubuntu 11.04 (Unity).

For a few programs (XChat, Pidgin) the mousepointer changes to white when the mouse is over the window, and, for the same programs, the titlebar text remains darkgray as if the window isn't active.

Both these issues don't occur with the default Ambiance theme.

The gtkrc file can be found in the gtk-2.0 directories in each theme.

That would be, for example for Equinox Evolution:
/usr/share/themes/Equinox Evolution/gtk-2.0

There are big problems with the use of themes equinox (equinox evolution dawn in the screen) and the office suite LibreOffice. If you use the program LibreOffice Calc cards appear unreadable in low

Hi, after upgrade Evolution Dawn theme to 1.50, I have problem with other applets, than only with Network applet. Weather applet, Gnome NameDay (https://launchpad.net/~georgdh) are black as well as panel.

Thanks P.

Same problem, here. =|

I use the GNOME Sensors Applet and the temperature text is black. However, if I change the theme to Equinox Evolution Dusk, which uses the dark gnome-panel too, everything is fine (the text is white). There's anything we can do to solve this?

Hi! I'm using your equinox evolution dawn, but I prefer use light toolbar (like other part of window). How can I modify this in gtkrc theme config? Thanks :D

I think that replacing all the references to theme-toolbar-dark by theme-toolbar and theme-toolbar-button-dark by theme-toolbar-button in the gtkrc file would be sufficient. And also comment the following line (#487) :
widget_class "*<GtkToolbar>*<GtkLabel>*"    style "theme-dark"

I installed Equinox 1.40 from source but it keep saying that it's not installed. I'm using Debian 6. Please help :)

No response of tiheum, so i decide to propose the port here :

http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=140942

Tiheum if you don't agree with that, please message me and I remove the port.

You do a great job with faenza icons and themes, i really like it :-)

Bye

No problem but I'd rather you mention that your theme is not an official one. I plan to make some emerald port for all the five Equinox Evolution themes and they will be significantly different from yours.

I'm fine with that and change the description on the port by adding "unofficial" !

I'm waiting your official theme :-)

Bye!

Hi tiheum, i really like your theme and icons, especially the Equinox Evolution Dusk theme !

I use emerald for eye candy, not metacity. As i really appreciate your theme, i made a port of it for emerald.

Can i propose this emerald port in gnome-look?

It's may be too early to ask, but do you have any plans on porting Equinox themes to gnome 3?

It's may be too early too answer but, honestly, developing an engine is a huge work that is not very rewarding (I talk about instant and personal gratification). So, today, I have no plan to port Equinox on Gnome 3 but I'm not very delighted to do it especially if GTK3 requires a complete rewrite.
