Description:

Hello !

Sugar is sweet, as this theme (hopefully) !

Enough of bad joke, this theme is meant to be very clean and nice. Good for both professional and personal use I think.


It includes a dark menu version you can choose from Controls customization.


It is sensitive to color changes so you can customize it to your liking.
It comes with 5 sets of predefined colors : Blue (Sugar), Gray (SugarGrey), Green (SugarGreen), Orange (SugarOrange) and Brown (SugarUbuntu)

Sets use the great Gion Icon Theme. You can find it here : http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Gi%C3%B8n?content=36944
Ubuntu and Orange sets use the Human Icon Theme ubuntu-mono-dark that comes with Ubuntu.

Feedbacks and bug reports appreciated !!!

The theme work good in Karmick Ubuntu, but in Maverick sometime one Window
or the Panel are not themed. Perhaps a bug with Maverick?

A very nice theme- thank you.

I see a small bug in Debian Lenny (with updated GTK and Murrine- so this is probably a tiny user base, but I hope you can help.)

The volume applet slider is virtually invisible, and the preferences menu inconsistent with other applet preference menus- see screenshot.

Oh I missed that one, thanks for the report I'll try to fix it as son as possible.

You may use the normal Sugar (without dark menu) until then.

Hi, Your theme looks like something i would like alot.. Alas I don't know what to do to make it work properly, I believe I compiled murrine from git successfully though i might me wrong, If you know of a place I can find instructions as to how to get themes like yours working, I'd really appreciate it if you would share the info.

Where can one get version 1.1 of the Murrine Engine? I've looked all over for it and can't find it, not even at Cimitan's own website (the most recent he has is 0.90). Where did you find it?

1.1 is the version of my theme not the lasted version of murrine.

I said that you might need to compile murrine from git (http://git.gnome.org/browse/murrine/) for the version 1.1 of my theme.

I think it might work on Lucid without needing to compile murrine but i haven't tested.

Ah...thanx. Since I'm at work right now (on that inferior virus-laden operating system, and not by choice), I'll get to it over the weekend. Thanx again! :-)

Is there a way to turn the variations into standalone gtk themes.

Report

C

SamsamTS

9 years ago

I don't do it that way for 3 reasons :
- It's harder to maintain
- Why duplicate files when what is changing is only the color set
- You can change to SugarDarkmenu without affecting the chosen color set

But I will add every color set into the gtkrc file.

That way you will just need to comment the default color set (blue) and uncomment the color you need.
If you really want standalone themes you will have to duplicate the gtkrc and choose the right color set in each.

I'll update it soon.

> Why duplicate files when what is changing is only the color set

Well, because not everyone uses GNOME (XFCE in my case), and is able to change the colours unless by hacking gtkrcs.


Anyway, thanks a lot for your nice theme. I like it a lot. btw. if there's interest I made myself an emerald windeco based on Dust.
