Description:

This is a port of the ClearGlow theme to the SVN version of the Murrine engine. MurrineGlow is totally done in Murrine, except for the tabs, which are based on Clearlooks Gummy.

It is available in 6 colors: blue, green, orange, red, pink and gray.

If you don't have the Murrine SVN engine installed, you can grab the snapshot and compile it yourself using the following commands:

svn checkout http://svn.gnome.org/svn/murrine/trunk/ murrine
cd murrine
./autogen.sh --enable-animation
make
sudo make install

Or, if you are using Ubuntu like I am, you can install any of the existing pre-packaged .debs available in some repos, or even those that Perfectska compiled.

I believe there might be some Murrine SVN packages for other distros, but I'm not aware of further details about it.

MurrineGlow will NOT work at all if you don't have the SVN version of Murrine installed.

The package I'm providing includes the GTK themes and the Metacity theme already used by ClearGlow, along with the necessary index.theme files for an easy utilization of the theme.

On the screenshots, I'm using the Calibri font, bold weight, size 8. The icon set displayed is Eikon, a personal collection of icons from many different sources I've been building since I started using Linux.

I have submitted an Emerald theme to go with this GTK theme. It's not perfect, but it's something:

A really nice theme but I have a little problem with icons, some icons don't appear like the Desktop one and my /home/, do you know how to fix it ?

Are you using Ubuntu Intrepid Ibex or any other unstable distro, by any chance?

Thanks for answering !
I'm using Ubuntu Hardy Heron.

Hmmm... That's odd. See, I asked about Intrepid because that would mean that perhaps the new GNOME release had changed the names of icons again. Since you're using Hardy as I am, it's time to take another approach.

Are you noticing those issues you mentioned everywhere? Or just in some particular places (like, only on menus, only on Nautilus windows, etc.) I'll be reviewing the names of the icons and trying to find a solution.

Is anyone else experiencing the same issue?

Thanks for your message, it's my pleasure to try to help and give something useful to the community.

It happens in the menus and in Nautilus.

Hello again. It seems that the problem was that many of the shortcuts inside of the theme pointed to absolute locations inside of my computer. Therefore, they point to nowhere if someone else is using it. I'll republish the icon set as soon as possible. I'm very very sorry for the trouble I caused.

Thanks for your message, once again. Keep passing by.

Very nice. First Murrine theme I've ever found usable.

Any way to use the ClearGlow scrollbar though? I really like how compact those things are. I'm not asking to put that in the next version, just wondering what I'd do in the gtkrc to make it happen.

Report

Sure. I understand the request, in fact I like both scrollbar solutions. I'm using this one in MurrineGlow to take advantage of the engine's new features.

In order to use ClearGlow's thinner scrollbars, please follow me in these instructions:

Change:
GtkRange::trough-border = 3
to:
GtkRange::trough-border = 0

and:
GtkRange::stepper-size = 10
to:
GtkRange::stepper-size = 1

I hope I helped.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and/or issues. Thanks for passing by!

Well that just sealed it. Fantastic work, my friend. It combines with the Oxygen-Refit icon theme VERY well.

Looks great on murrina, but rgba isn't working on this theme? i am using svn and rgba is working currently on my other murrina themes.

Great Job

Report

I disabled RGBA in MurrineGlow on purpose because I personally dislike the omnipresent transparencies (making everything clear, all the time, no matter what, without being able to tune the amount of transparency you want, isn't clever to me, UI-wise). Still, if you want to enable RGBA, just open the gtkrc file, make a quick search for the expression "rgba" and change all FALSE statements to TRUE.

If enabling RGBA rendering is required by many users, it might eventually be a default feature in MurrineGlow. I'd rather see some improvements on how RGBA is implemented on Murrine before doing that. Just that.

Now, this one is way better than clearglow, keep the amazing job, murrine-svn is awesome, and is shaping to be a great release.
