Description:

Fibrous is a collection of Murrine themes in several colors with a matching metacity theme. The GTK themes have been tested on Murrine engine version 0.51 - earlier versions may have problems.

The metacity theme was initially inspired by Junel Mujar's Emerald theme TheFiber, and follows GTK colors.
Included in this release are:

Fibrous-Cobalt - Blue highlights
Fibrous-Rubidium - Red highlights
Fibrous-Thallium - Green highlights
Fibrous-Indium - Indigo highlights

If the response is good, I will continue with new colors. Currently the themes try to use the Aero icons; nuoveXT-1.6 also works well with it.

A note on the panel gradient - it's accomplished with a pixmap, so if your panel is not 24-pixels tall, you may want to edit panel-bg.png to fit your panel.

Unbelievable work, no doubt. If this was an Emerald theme, it be even cooler! But I have dropped Beryl for this!

I have an emerald version of this, actually - but of course it doesn't pick up GTK color, so it just comes in Blue.

It's easy enough to change the color, so if you want it, just let me know.

It's amazing. I'm especially liking the Metacity theme included.

Yeah I really love your theme!!! There is any chance to have a black based version?

Yeah, there will be a couple of new colors in the next release. Right now, they'll probably be "Carbon", which is black, "Tungsten", which is a pale greyish, and an as-yet-unnamed pale blue/grey color.

awesome themes! Rubidium has become my default theme now, previous one was Milk2.0 for quite a long time.
Keep up the good work!

Hi !

It is a great theme; but its SLOW !
I don't know if its this theme or the engine (I'm on .51) but just by scrolling in firefox, you can see that something is slowing down.

Also, under Azureus (Java/swt) you can actually see the application flashing when it has to repaint itself...

Hope I'm not the only one and that you can fix that !

It shouldn't be any slower than any other murrine-based theme. I do use the pixmap engine once, but only to draw the background for gnome-panel. Several other themes do this as well.

The metacity theme shouldn't be doing more than a dozen drawing operations for any given window state, and most of those don't even do alpha. I doubt that's causing the problem.

On my computer at least, I don't see any issues with regards to speed. If others here have seen a problem with it that you don't see in other murrine themes, by all means, let me know.

Does this require a particular version (or higher) of the Murrine engine? I have
0.31-1 installed, and the GTK2 elements of this theme don't seem to be working.

I'm using .51, and haven't tested it on earlier versions.

I'll make a note of that on the next update.

when the window is shaded\rolled up, it looks a little funny because of the kinda bevel on the bottom of the frame. the titlebar text overlaps this (things like g & j).

also, when the window is shaded and unfocused there is a grey line at the very bottom.

otherwise, it's a very nice theme.

I don't get a grey line at the bottom when I shade the window, focused or unfocused, but I was planning on removing the white line and lower bevel from shaded windows - I'll do that sometime in the next few days.

Ah. It appears that Heliodor doesn't 100% match Metacity behaviour, then. I was using Heliodor, so I didn't see that.

I'll correct that at some point this weekend.

I've corrected the glitch you described; shaded windows now look much better in Metacity.

The artifacts you saw aren't there anymore, and a "shadow" gradient has been added to the bottom of the shaded titlebar.
