Rezlooks GTK Engine
GTK2 Themes
Score 73%
Description:

Rezlooks is a gtk theme engine based on the cairo-enabled CVS clearlooks engine code.

It basically strips all the stuff from clearlooks that I don't like. The lack of rounded corners is probably the most obvious change, but there are various other smaller changes too. It should also be faster than clearlooks from cvs because in order to make my changes I stripped down the code somewhat.

This engine can happily be installed alongside clearlooks, or any other engine as far as I know.

The themes are basically the same as clearlooks themes, just change the engine from clearlooks to rezlooks in the gtkrc file of the theme you want to convert. I've also included a couple of themes ready for this engine for you to download if you like. These are Rezlooks-Gilouche, based on the Suse Gilouche gtk theme, and Rezlooks-graphite, based on Clearlooks-graphite which was made by lokheed.

Thanks to the clearlooks authors, especially Remenic - sorry for ruining your beautiful theme engine again :P

Thanks also to David Barr for help and testing.

Thanks to Michael Magua for packaging up a Fedora Core 5 RPM.

Thanks to "Mandrake" for the Ubuntu deb.

Finally, thanks to whoever wrote the Gilouche theme for the Suse folks, and to lokheed for his Clearlooks-graphite theme which I pretty much stole.

**NOTE: If you've installed it fine but when you try to use one of the themes you get the old default gtk engine, try installing again after running "./configure --prefix=/usr"

**NOTE: There seems to be some (understandable) confusion between the Rezlooks gtk engine and the rezlooks set of themes that I uploaded to gnome-look (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=35077) back in february. To clarify, those themes were basically the precursor to this theme engine, they came with a small patch to the clearlooks source which got rid of the rounded corners. This theme engine is the logical continuation of that, in that it continues the process of making clearlooks more in tune with my tastes. I won't be updating those themes to use this engine, I'll leave them in case someone wants to use the colours without installing this theme engine.

PS That's NOT metacity, that's OPENBOX in the screenshots. Stop asking about the metacity theme please!

PPS RPM re-added, thanks again Michael.

Hi, I really Rezlooks,
I was looking for Rezlooks-graphite theme but it seems that the links do not work or lead to a wrong site. Could you correct this ? Can you provide a valid link to the theme ?

Thanks ;-)

is the ubuntu deb available here have animations enabled? cause i don't see animations on the progress bars while loading and i've tried on a alot of different applications like synaptic when it's installing it uses the progess bar.

As far as I know, it has animations enabled. Bear in mind that the theme you use has to use animations too - ie it must have "animation = TRUE" in the gtkrc.

the theme i'm using Rezlooks-Graphite does have animations = true in the gtkrc file, i checked to make sure and yes it does... and still no animations that's why i have reason to believe the ubuntu deb was not built with animations enabled

I really like the addition of that striped gradient style. Is it possible to add more customization to that in future versions?
Such as which way stripes go, colour of stripes, or perhaps a flat-striped style?
Fantastic work rezza, I really love it.

PS: I saw one of your desktops a couple months ago and have been using OpenBox ever since.

Yes, more customization of the stripes is planned in the future.

Any chance of the source deb for us poor non-i386 people? Screenshots look nice :)

Umm, sorry, not gonna happen. If you want a source deb, I think there are tools available in debian to make one from a source tarball.

How can I make my metacity black when using the gilouche theme as in your screenshot

I know nothing about how metacity works, so I don't know.

style "metacity-frame"
{
# Focused title background color
bg[SELECTED] = "#444444"
}
class "MetaFrames" style "metacity-frame"
class "GtkWindow" style "metacity-frame"

if its a metacity code theme and not pixmap, put that at the end of the gtkrc before all the widget classes. The candy and green theme do it.

The metacity theme will have to be using bg[SELECTED] for it to work.
