Description:

Required engines:
- Murrine-git (or from Lucid Lynx)
- Equinox 1.1

IPORTANT NOTE: I've dumped styles for official Nautilus and focused on Nautilus-elementary 2.30 instead. It's recommended to have it installed. If you don't like Nautilus-elementary, there's a solution for it in included README.

Be sure to read included README!

weakhead, in my opinion this is the best variation of the elementary theme i've seen. Great job, really!

I like so much this theme that i would like to use it with a different palette of colors, but i have problem identifying the right parameter for the side panel color. Is it possible to change this value? If so, can you give me some tips?

Thanks!

I assume that you're talking about sidebar in Nautilus?
If so, then there are 2 ways to edit it's color:

1) Open /path_to/elementary EM/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and edit value of
gtk_color_scheme = "fm_color:#EBEBEB"
(line 9) to what you desire - however, this will affect more than just the sidebar.

2) Open /path_to/elementary EM/gtk-2.0/nautilus.rc and modify colors used in style "nautilus-sidebar" = "theme-thin" (lines 1-43) and style "nautilus-sidebar-title" (lines 53-97). Simply put, change @fm_color to the color you like.
This way, you'll affect only sidebar and it's header.

Thank you for the answer, weakhead.

Actually I've found a workaround adding some line in the gtkrc, without affecting the whole theme. :)

Nice theme, and very good alternative to the elementary theme.
In your screenshot, you've got an arrow on the right-hand-side of the breadcrumb but I don't get that arrow/image in mine.
Is there anything I can change in the theme to get that?

You must enable breadcrumbs in tweaks menu (which can be found in preferences dialog of Nautilus-elementary).
You can also manually enable them in gconf-editor:
/apps/nautilus/preferences/pathbar_like_breadcrumbs (must be enabled).

Thank you.
I haven't played around with Nautilus-elementary, so I didn't have an idea. Now, it looks the way its meant to.

"Window borders" = Metacity themes. I didn't made one, so you won't find it.
To get matching Metacity theme, install elementary GTK theme (also called eGTK), which has Metacity theme included (last link in download section).

Well, breadcrumbs doesn't work because they aren't implemented.
However, breadcrumbs will be built directly into Nautilus-elementary so they will be available for every GTK theme.

When this will happen, I don't know.

I know what you mean. There's way too many elementary mods out there.

But I have no regrets in making this one - I've learned some important things during it's creation.

Well balanced gray tones, smooth widget elements, readability, a good contrast for fonts over backgrounds and button states, nothing too extreme, nothing too soft - all those reasons make me to consider Elementary EM as one of the best Gnome themes on our days.

Good work man.
