Description:

Fast brushed Clearlooks theme made to loosely resemble OSX Tiger

Contains two variations: classic (fast) and aquastyle with blue decorations and aqualike scrolbars (not so fast), and two subvariations of each: normal and bright for different monitors.

Also it contains different metacity themes: T-ish-Brushed-Glass (now default) and T-ish-Brushed (classical flat). If you are using compizinstall T-ish-Metal compiz theme (link below).

Choose your desired combination through theme details dialog.

DOES NOT WORK WITH CLEARLOOKS-CAIRO !!

Based on Clerlooks engine, Ish GTK theme with additional buttons from Expose and GlossyP metacity borders.

Requires clearlooks engine.

IMPORTANT: In order to install all of the themes you'll have to manually extract to ~/.themes dir.

For best results use OSX icons, jaguax mouse theme, and Brushed firefox skin (links below).

To-do list:
- transparent panels

It's been awhile now that I'm away from Gnome desktop and I'd like to know how these themes still fare in comparison with new Gnome eyecandy?

Anyone still uses them?

How wel do they work on your distributions?

Thanks.

Thank you for this excellent theme! It looks great!

A question:

If I wanna change the color of the tooltips background from grey to something else and also the grey color of selected text, how do I do it??

Cheers!

I love this theme! Good work. I also tried the "Brushed" theme but didn't like it as much as the T-ish/Clearlooks version you've made, however when I use the "Brushed" theme FireFox also adopts the brushed look but under this theme FireFox is just a dark grey color. I'm using the tango icon theme for FireFox and would like to contiue to do so. Is it possible for your theme to also force FireFox to adpot the brushed look?

Thanks,
Keep up the good work!

Hi!

I want to ask a question :)
I'm new in GNOME, so how can I place the window buttons to the left side? Is there any option for a left/rigth alignment what I can't find or what? :)

Thanks.

PS: The theme is gorgeous! ;)

Metacity buttons:
Start gconf-editor from console.

Or on ubuntu: go to:
Applications->System tools->Configuration editor

when gconf is started go to:
apps->metacity->general

and into button_layout field put the following values:

close,minimize,maximize:menu

Thanks for your beautiful theme.
Unlike other previous themes, I have kept using this theme for a long time. :D

One thing I'd like to know is how to exclude some icons that imposed by the main theme to a specific program.
For instance, I was recently trying to change "previous","next" and "print" icons in evolution email program by copying some other icons to stock directory under theme directory, but I couldn't change those.

Is there any way to achieve that?
However, I still keep the above mentioned icons to other programs.

Thanks beforehand,

There is the way but I don't know yet how exactly to do it.

Thanks for the theme you've worked.

Could you let me know how to change the location bar so that it looks just like your screenshot in file browser?

In my nautilus, it's always just a text-input panel.

Thanks,

Start gconf-editor from console.

Or on ubuntu: go to:
Applications->System tools->Configuration editor

when gconf is started go to:
apps->nautilus->preferences

choose: start_with_location_bar and turn off allways_use_location_entry

the arrows in the scrollbar didn't fit well with the aquastyle scrollbar

the arrows are square while the scrollbar is rounded

Ok, I understand now.

Unfortunately I don't see any way to get them matched and too have preflight effect at the same time.

I don't think there is the way to have that yet.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

BTW, do you happen to have an idea in your mind to include evolution stock icons in the future?

Well I didn't thought about it because I recommend OSX icons.

However since OSX icons introduced green evolution icons I should probably reconsider this.

This is among the best OSX-like brushed themes I've seen for gtk+ so far. Very good job!

First of all, I'll tell you that this is for me the best gnome theme, I use it everyday. Good job mate!

After that, one petition: can you animate the progress bar please? It will be closer to MAC look.

Thank you in advance.

Report

Thank you.

Animated progressbar is planned feature:))

However, to do this it requires clearlooks-cairo engine which is right now in development status and does not yet accepts all configuration parameters I need to make this theme behave as it should.

As soon as we have stable clearlooks-cairo engine I'll publish a version that enables animations.

In a meantime, if you whish to experiment you can install latest clearlooks cairo development release, and try animations with classic T-ish theme which already works with clearlooks-cairo engine.

Cheers.

thanks for the new release! ;)

and the bug ...

when you open a program (like gedit) from terminal it prompt something like this:

/home/gil/.themes/T-ish-Brushed-Aquastyle/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:2: Can't find the file to include: «iconrc»

note: it will not prompt the exact string because I'm catalan and I have gnome localization for catalan, but the bug can simply be erased modifing the gtkrc finding: include "iconrc"
and changing it with: include "icons/iconrc"

and happy new year ;)

yesterday, playing around with gtkrc I found that that bug was self-resolved, I try to explain

in the begining of the gtrkc there is a
include "iconrc" (and obviously this is the bug)

but, at the end of the gtkrc there is another

include "icons/iconrc" (and this is correct but gtk+ seems to catch only the first ocurrence)

another time, thanks for this theme and sorry for my english!!
