Description:

This theme has been superseded by cyan, which is quite similar but more clean, please check it out: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/cyan?content=159717

A dark theme, inspired by Tron Legacy (and some really old GUI\'s).

It comes in cyan and red, GTK+ only, since I'm using wmii now.

Display font is Chicago from Apple, but you might use basically any Fixedsys-clone (very similiar) or futuristic font you like.
Since Chicago is from Apple and not really open source or free in any sense (beer AND money) its not included.

Icons are ACYL (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Any+Color+You+Like?content=102435).


Feel free to leave some comments, thanks.

Where (which file) can the color (hex code) (red/cyan) be changed?

Very very nice, oooh pretty!

I got an error opening the menu in a a gtk game (dopewars), the error says: http://ompldr.org/vZHFiNg, this can be fixed by changing the menuitem border to { 10, 3, 3, 3 }.

How can I change the selected control to be more visible? So when I tab through controls I can better see which is selected?

Thanks, very nice!

I have to add that the rulers in GIMP get messed up when you zoom, while using this theme.

Love this theme. Damn good work and the icon pack works great with it.

Makes my netbook look awesome, and adding screenlets makes it look even better.

Used the monospace font, which comes with Xubuntu and it looks fantastic. Makes my netbook feel like it's ready to go to space....in the future.

I'm trying to install the theme atm. Enlightenment has been installed, all is working well from that front. I've downloaded the theme and extracted the folders into their respective places (~/.themes and ~/.e16/themes), but when I go to appearance, the theme doesn't appear! I've tried restarting GNOME two or three times to no avail. Any ideas?

OK I've figured out the e16 theme placement so that's working fine now. It's the GTK theme I'm having issues with.

Needlessly to say things work just fine on my machine...
I'm setting up a different install to track this.
Which distribution do you use, which version of gnome?

I've figured it out. For some reason copying it to ~/.themes wasn't working. I ended up compressing the cyan-gtk folder into a tar.gz and installing by dragging the .gz to the Appearance window.

In case I did'nt mention it before, but I hate gnome.
Thanks for pointing this out.

Yeah, the different thicknes was in tron (;

But for real, it gives more weight to the horizonthal layer and makes it just a bit more elegant.

The inner edges are a problem I on, e16 sets all the border transparent, so I put some rounded transparency on the inside, wich looks not in every situation good. The other problem is 1 bit transparency on shaped windows (this is inherited by x11), so I can't smooth them out as I like.

Elementary:
I used some earlier versions of the icons, but some later changes and metaphors drived me away.
The idea of refining UIs of programms is a dead end, It has to be redone on every new release and just "face-lifts" problems more deep without solving them...
But the plain existence (and, to say, necesserity) of it proves that there is some major usability problem within gnome.
But no gnome-discussion here (;
Elementary tries to be too much of an apple, there, GnuSTEP and Etóile seems the better resolution.

Next update end of the week after eastern (is this right? Sounds just wrong to me), this time with basic icons.

Regards, Daniel

very nice concept man, I was looking for something like this long time.
I was able to make it work in arch, gnome 2.28. I was able to select gnome-E16 trough gdm, no .bashrc or .xinitrc configs, only changed with gconf-editor in /desktop/gnome/session/recquired_componets/windowmanager to e16.
I gladly wait for updates. Is the borders filling difference on purpose? (upper and lower borders ar thiner than side ones).
It can also use some more work in the round corners.
Best regards, tangato

Nice to see somebody else who is a
"free thinker" and actually creates some
own design :) I love the technical look
of it, I'm kind of a "tech-look-freak"
so this fits me right on.

Nowadays everything gnome is just elementary
this and elementary that, kill elemenatary
pls!

I've updated installation instructions, hope it helps (the last time I was in a rush).
If it doesn't work comment again (with as much detail as you can provide), I'm around here tomorrow and will try to replicate or solve the error 'round the weekend.

Different Colors are planned, but first this needs to get out of beta.

Development:
I built the round windowborder in e16 just out of curiosity if the no-button-or-titlebar-concept would work, and (for me) it worked damned well and looked just cool, so I decided to join it by a gtk-theme.
Since it is nearly monochrem (3 shades of cyan and pitch black) there is only one reference, the really old guis of the late 80s.
And since I used most of them (Old Apples, NeXT, SunOS4 and Openlook) and I had some screenies lying around, I tried to refine their concepts (just a underline instead of an entrybox, the arrow-style) to modern stadarts of usability (awareness of visuall-clutter and the like).
This is an ongoing process, there are so many rough edges...

So, enough talk, good night (;
