Description:

A version of this Azenis Theme is now the default theme for Ultimate Edition 2.3!!

Download now contains a more compact Netbook version

::Introduction::

What is Azenis I hear you say? Azenis was originally a windowblinds theme created by J.J.Ying, now in its second carnation it has become one of their most prominent themes with almost 200,000 downloads. It has also been ported to KDE by Ezy where it has proved equally successful. I decided to have a go at creating a port for gnome, i got permission from both J.J.Ying and Ezy and this is the result.

::Development::

I have currently uploaded a standard black and blue version as well an icon theme. Various other coloured versions including red, green, purple and gold versions of theme has also been created by myself and others. whilst a whiter version is still in progress that i hope to have ready soon. Please feel free to post comments and suggestions

Thanks and i hope you enjoy my theme

::Package contains::

-Gtk and Metacity Themes
-Nautilus Background
-Default Wallpaper
-Font
-Netbook version (Metacity and gtk)

::Installation instructions::

1. Download the file and place on your desktop
2. Open a terminal and run these commands:

sudo cp -r $HOME/Desktop/Azenis /usr/share/themes

3. Open the theme manager, you can now
select the Azenis theme,
when you click on it, it will apply the gtk and metacity themes as well as the icon and cursor themes if you have them installed. It will also give you the option of using the wallpaper provided with this theme.

Alternatively you can download the deb installer package created by TheeMahn, it is currently consistent with the 0.2.7 release of Azenis and contains Azenis, Azenis red as well as both of their matching icon themes, wallpapers, GDM, a Grub splash and the Usplash theme

::Links::

Lots of other really great Azenis Skins and themes to compliment the look created by others in the community. I strongly recommend a look =)

I am uploading an entire theme pack as well as about 1.1GB of other themes to themelinux.com repository. I have broken the Azenis theme into 5 packages 2 usplash pkgs x86 / amd64 the theme package itself, xsplash & plymouth splash. If installed from the repo will download the appropriate pkgs based on your o/s.

I have written a plymouth splash (lucid or higher) for it, and an xsplash. Using my xsplash maker. Please give me a few days and I will reflect changes on themelinux.com. I have done the same for all UE themes from 2.0 to 2.6.

I have started writing a plymouth maker, far from done.

Such an awesome themepack, but now it's not available :( (link redirects to a suspended page)

I loved this theme to death, then i accidentally trashed my HDD and all it's contents, with no backup of the theme

Any chances these files can be put back up?

Sorry to hear about your HD. As far as i can tell the link still works, i don't know if you just had a dodgey connection or something? (if anyone else has the same problem please let me know) Try again but if you still can't get it i'll happily E-mail them to you or something.

I tried again, and was able to download the theme, the emerald theme, and the icons, but not the wallpaper or deb packages (not that the deb would help me any -- I'm on ArchLinux now running under an LXDE+Compiz environment ;) )

*Note that I didn't test the audacious or cario themes, as I use neither

:D I've actually find where the problem with the warnings was. I've read about the icons themes and I've found it! :D

OK here it goes:

in the .icons/Azenis\ Icons directory there lives a file named "index.theme". In this file there is a line that starts with:

Directories=

and in this line there is a surplus "," sign like ",,". Remove one "," from the ",," and the warnings go away! :D Yes! :D Thanks again for a great theme!

Thanks again and all the best,

Hi,

first of all THANK you. The work you have done is really excellent. This is my first theme evar to use this way on Archlinux.

I also have a warning message

(lxappearance:7989): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory of theme Azenis Icons has no size field


(lxappearance:7991): Gtk-WARNING **: Theme directory of theme Azenis Icons has no size field

And I'm using Archlinux (your theme matches a great background and the logo :). I'll google about this... not sure if I can help with this but just to inform you. Thank you for the theme!

Downloaded and installed the updated Version (0.4.3 - normal blue). Problem is still there. Btw.: i only get the warning while starting a few gnome apps / not all. Nautilus is starting without a warning. I think not every app wants to read the size field?!

You can jabber me for further tests if you want: exmethix@jabber.org

hi jezza71,

you did it the wrong way.
do it this way. Open your personal folder in your user-account. Then go into the menu and open "view" and there go to the topic "hidden objects" and check the box there.

Then you look at the main window, where you see a hidden folder called .icons.
Then extract this package into this folder and close the folder again.

then you go to system->preferences->appearance and there go to "themes" and select the Azenis icons including the corresponding theme and save it.
E voila the Azenis-theme is installed.

That's all you have to do.

Greetings and have fun with this theme,
Karmicbastler

Very nice looking theme but having trouble installing.I copy Azenis from desktop to usr/share/themes but it does not show up in System>Preferences> Appearance>Theme. I navigate to usr/share/themes/Azenis but the whole folder is locked and has only root permissions. I have tried chmod and chown from the terminal but was left with an empty metacity-1 folder. Surely there is an easier way or have I missed something

Hmm this sounds very strange, the most common issue (although im sure this isn't the case in your instance) would be if you haven't given yourself the proper permissions to move the theme to usr/share/themes. or it could be that you are not moving the correct file structure. In this case however if you are unable to resolve it i would simply reccomend putting it into your .themes folder either by simply dragging and dropping the Azenis theme folder into it or an archived version of it onto your appearance preferences. This will however restrict usage of the theme to which ever user installs it and will need to be repeated for each subsequent user how also wants access to the theme.

Let me know if you need any more help, all the best,

James
