Oblivion gtk2.0 Theme

GTK2 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on opencode.net


I've made a Gtk Theme based on the Gedit Oblivion color theme.

Using: murrine engine
Based on: NOX - Gtk theme for ECSTATiCA ( but there is nothing much left of the original code )

Hope you like it.
Possibly, there are some bugs left but i dont hope so.

I've found a few "bugs" but didnt got rid off.
1. (minor) in Synaptics (in the application list) the first two columns are a bit to small to let the icons fit in.
2. (medium) OpenOffice has a light gray background.
3. (heavy) Thunderbird uses gtktreeview to render the email list...but it simultaneously uses the font color from elsewhere. This results in a black font on a black background.
To fix this problem, i've made a 2nd gtkrc without the edited gtktreeview

To use this with Thunderbird
launch it using
"env GTK2_RC_FILES=$HOME/.themes/Oblivion/gtk-2.0/gtkrc-thunderbird /usr/bin/thunderbird"
or use the script i've included. Move it in your home bin folder, make it executable and the thunderbird launcher should recognize it.

If someone knows how to patch the (normal) gtkrc so that TB runs without the script, i would be glad.

Have fun.
