Description:

This is a subtle mix between Glow and the last iRoll theme.

The screenshot shows various aspects of that theme, so you won't be able to reproduce it without using GIMP :).

In order to get font variations, you could put the a code into your ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file. You can find it either here (http://pastebin.com/f6ef3b363) or in my blog (http://joinwww.wordpress.com/2008/10/20/des-polices-des-themes-gtk, end of the article, in french sorry).

Then change your font settings using your favourite GTK theme application.


Firefox theming:
Put this into your ~/.mozilla/firefox//chrome/userChrome.css : http://pastebin.com/f139878. Then, use theme Camifox (downloadable here https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/7527) and the marvelous extension MultirowBookmarksToolbar (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6937).
Now you are browsing like a king :) !




Any advices are welcome.

Hi could you suggest some good metacity themes to use with your fantastic theme?

I use Emerald for my window managing needs but you can search for themes related to ClearGlow or MurrineGlow (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/MurrineGlow?content=88406) as the menubar background color has been borrowed from this theme suite. I think it can fit GlowLeopard nicely :).

Thanks.

toolbar icons are to small for us with hi resolutions, maybe a few options here!

thanks

You could rather remplace the line for iconsizes in your ~/.themes/GlowLeopard/gtkrc like this :
gtk-icon-sizes ="gtk-small-toolbar=16,16:gtk-large-toolbar=24,24:gtk-button=12,12:panel-menu=16,16:gtk-menu=16,16"
Or erase it in order to inherit the default icon sizes of GTK programs (which is quite big)...

If many people ask it, I could package a less compact version of that theme.

You may want to check your download package.

I'm getting a folder hierarchy of home/join/.themes/GlowLeopard

If I didn't think to check for hidden files, I would not have found your theme!

Other than that, you did a nice job. I'm look forward to your improvements.

Sorry for everyone, I made a mistake when I updated the theme for the last time. Messing with tar is not my passion :).
It is working now and I will try to make several improvements this week.
Feel free to send any wishes, ideas or remarks.

Is there any way to remove the boarder between the menu bar and the tool bar

Report

I'll work on this in a couple of days... Finding a solution for merging the two bars and having correct background colors for entry and button elements (for instance in Firefox).

Seems that it's more difficult than I thought... The main problem is that the whole theme uses the Aurora engine, which doesn't allow to remove the border between the menubar and the toolbar. Changing that behaviour requires to pass the whole theme into the Clearlooks or Murrine engine, and then use Aurora for some widgets.
I could make an alternate version, if you really want. Another benefit of this version would be a faster loading (with Murrine).

IMHO, it's better than Glow and iRoll. And this is the best theme of Apple-clones.
