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 :

[indent]#include "apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"[/indent]

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

[indent]#include "apps/globalmenu.rc"[/indent]

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

I noticed that the Equinox themes/engine were absent from Natty, but I never expected them to come back AND be so refined. The Dawn theme was exactly what I was looking for and looks great in Unity, and the addition of breadcrumbs is very welcome. I do notice that the color of the Metacity window boarder doesn't quite blend in with the part underneath it in Dawn. This appears to be the fault of the missing menu bar because in apps that still have the menu bar the blend is seamless. Anyway, nice themes, thanks!
