Description:

This is my attempt to revive a theme that I liked but never got released.

Because of the close integration between the GTK and Metacity themes you will find:

* That the titlebar font size works best between 8-10 (using sans bold as an example). Depending on your monitor 11-12 may still be acceptable.

* That you cant change the windows background color (due to the GTK and Metacity theme integration).

* That KDE, Java and wxWidgets applications dont look as intended. I am looking into fixing this if possible.

Those points aside if you are like me and 99% of your applications are GTK you should have no problems... and the result look fantastic!

If you find a GTK application that hasnt themed correctly please report it below and I will see what I can do.

And lastly if you have the time it would be great if you could vote and comment on the theme. Note that this is my first attempt at a GTK theme so please be kind :-)

This theme requires the latest Murrine Engine.

I don't understand. I am on Archlinux, with latest Murrine engine and this theme doesn't work properly.

Any idea ? I'm so frustrated, this theme is awesome.

Hmm I'm running Ubuntu and I've got Murrine 0.90.3+git 2010 02 10.

If you run "metacity --replace" in the command line then change your theme back to the "Unified" theme do you see any errors outputed. It could give you a hint as to what could be wrong?

For example doing the above but using a different theme I have installed I can see "gtkrc:473: Murrine configuration option "gradients" is no longer supported and will be ignored.".

Hi, terminal says :
/home/raph/.themes/Unified/gtk-2.0/gtkrc:110: error: unexpected identifier `arrowstyle', expected character `}'


I don't understand... I tryed with latest stable version from "community deposit" and with git-version in AUR...

But still "win98 style".

Ok thats tell me that your version of the murrine-engine isnt new enough to run the theme.

Im not sure where the best place to find and update for Archlinux is :-(

I see that the arch package has been updated and the theme is now working for you :-)

Hopefully you'll agree that nautilus looks nice. I didnt go to town on it because the latest version is a lot cleaner than previous ones but I did do a few subtle tweaks to it.

I agree with Aturbal. Making nautilus pretty is essential.

but, don't forget to keep the line that separates the tree foders to the foders (in the nautilus) a single thin line with the background of the tree divisory have a diferent color (i think that it's better this way, like elementary theme).
