Description:

gFlat is a gtk-engine using cairo and is based on clearlooks.
i addet some options in the gtkrc:
cornerstyle: specify if you want rounded cornerst or not
scrollbarstyle: specify if you want strokes on the scrollbar (see screenshot 1)
progressbarstyle: specify if you want arrows for the progressbar strokes or the original clearlooks style.

if this options are not set, the engine takes the default value.

NOTE: on my 2nd system i had to logout and login after selecting this theme because ther were some funny colors on the widgets. after this it worked.

PS: productive comments are always welcome!

Try the engine together with the gFlat metacity theme by bvc!

Excuse me for my ignorance XD

I've downloaded the engine, ran

$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install

and all went finally, seems to be installed fine, but how do I use it!? I downloaded a theme that uses it and enabled the theme, but it just displayed what looked like the system default - I'm guessing because the GTK engine is not enabled.

How do I use the engine? Any help appreciated :)

sorry.

there is a very light gradient. you can see this by using a color chooser and click on 2 different areas on the menuitem and then you´ll see that the 2 colors are different. but i´ll make the gradient stronger

oh you mean that there is a function like gflat_draw_borders whichdraws the outlines for each object?
what has this for a advantage in your opinion?

...but I would really appreaciate if you included (at least as an option in gtkrc, if something like that is doable) possibilty to have the outlines separating gui elements.Otherwise, great theme...

getting better with every release :)
while i really liked this theme because it had square corners ive found the way u implemented round ones (as chosen in the gtk file) is much sexier than in clearlooks

keep up the good work!

on goal of my engine should be to be more controlable by the gtkrc than clearlooks.

the whatsitcalled, systray/panel separator is much niceer now :)

a pressed button, for example save button in gedit, has a very dull brownish border colour that i dont like so much

there are no separators between the various part of a program, for example between button bar and the text menu bar thing in gedit.maybe ill get used to it

the lines that separates entries in menus are very hard, for example if u rightclick desktop the popup menu has very dark hard lines.maybe its a matter of getting used to too :)

Nice work. I think the lines on the scrollbar looks really tacky and is a little too much. Other than that, its a great start :)
