Description:

MurrinaCrystal theme, based on the great murrine engine (SVN) only.

Please leave a comment if you must vote bad, so that I can improve it, thanks in advance!

Note: The latest Murrine engine from SVN/GIT or Ver. 0.90.2+ is highly recommended!

Thank Suraia for packing the murrine engine (svn) for ubuntu.

And for Archers, you will find gtk-engine-murrine-git/gtk-engine-murrine in the AUR/Community repo.

Hi,
any of you know if this theme can work on Ubuntu 8.04?

Thanks.

It should work on any system as long as you have the latest murrine engine (svn) installed.
I've no idea if Cygoku's pkg can be installed on ubuntu 8.04.

The engine packed by Cygoku definitely does not work on Ubuntu 8.04.

Well, how about compiling the engine yourself, it's not difficult.
You can find it here:
http://svn.gnome.org/svn/murrine/trunk/

For you it may not be difficult but there are people that don't know how to do it.

Download all the files and folders from here ---> http://svn.gnome.org/svn/murrine/trunk/ (ex: ~/Desktop/murrine)

find an install.sh script. (There is one in aurora engine source package here: http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Aurora+Gtk+Engine?content=56438)
put it into murrine folder

then,
1. sudo apt-get autoconf
2. sudo apt-get libtool
3. sudo apt-get intltool

after this, in terminal go into murrine's source folder,(ex: ~/Desktop/murrine)
first input 'autoconf' (this will create a configure script).
then, './configure (generally --prefix=/usr, try --enable-animation); make ; make install'

this worked for me with Hardy 8.04.

Hello, I just want to use an orange-family color, it looks not so warm-ish because the saturation is kinda low.
Here are some choices: #E6E0D8, #E6DFD6, #E6DED4, #E6DDD1, #E6DCCF.
Please have a try and tell me your choice.
Thank you!

Sorry, the colors are:
#e6e0da, #e6dfd8, #e6ded5, #e6ddd3, #e6dcd1, #e6dbcf.

well the old color was the best, but if i had the choice from the colours from you recommended, than i think this one was the best of them: #e6dbcf
but it has a sooooooooft pink touch. thats the negativ about it.

Here is a construction suggestion for the Human version. Selected item text should stay black instead of white because the selected color is very light and does not contrast enough for a good viewability.

This is a great gtk-Theme. It would be even more great if the toolbar was skinned
like the toolbar in Ubuntu's "Glossy", so the nautilus or firefox toolbar is not just grey...

thank you for sharing!

Glossy toolbar, yeah I can do it.
Some one said it's better to have a scrollbar-ish face, what do you think?

Report

keyOne

I think scrollbar-ish would overdo it.
Just white with a slight light grey gradient (like in "glossy") would do it, so the toolbars don't look that old school. IMHO it would match the theme perfectly.

Kind regards

Agreed. Will do it later.
And BTW, the menu-bars can be glossy, too.
