Description:

Rezlooks is a gtk theme engine based on the cairo-enabled CVS clearlooks engine code.

It basically strips all the stuff from clearlooks that I don't like. The lack of rounded corners is probably the most obvious change, but there are various other smaller changes too. It should also be faster than clearlooks from cvs because in order to make my changes I stripped down the code somewhat.

This engine can happily be installed alongside clearlooks, or any other engine as far as I know.

The themes are basically the same as clearlooks themes, just change the engine from clearlooks to rezlooks in the gtkrc file of the theme you want to convert. I've also included a couple of themes ready for this engine for you to download if you like. These are Rezlooks-Gilouche, based on the Suse Gilouche gtk theme, and Rezlooks-graphite, based on Clearlooks-graphite which was made by lokheed.

Thanks to the clearlooks authors, especially Remenic - sorry for ruining your beautiful theme engine again :P

Thanks also to David Barr for help and testing.

Thanks to Michael Magua for packaging up a Fedora Core 5 RPM.

Thanks to "Mandrake" for the Ubuntu deb.

Finally, thanks to whoever wrote the Gilouche theme for the Suse folks, and to lokheed for his Clearlooks-graphite theme which I pretty much stole.

**NOTE: If you've installed it fine but when you try to use one of the themes you get the old default gtk engine, try installing again after running "./configure --prefix=/usr"

**NOTE: There seems to be some (understandable) confusion between the Rezlooks gtk engine and the rezlooks set of themes that I uploaded to gnome-look (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=35077) back in february. To clarify, those themes were basically the precursor to this theme engine, they came with a small patch to the clearlooks source which got rid of the rounded corners. This theme engine is the logical continuation of that, in that it continues the process of making clearlooks more in tune with my tastes. I won't be updating those themes to use this engine, I'll leave them in case someone wants to use the colours without installing this theme engine.

PS That's NOT metacity, that's OPENBOX in the screenshots. Stop asking about the metacity theme please!

PPS RPM re-added, thanks again Michael.

Hey,
With the 0.6 update if I change the menubaritemstyle to 1 [button-ish], then the menu title [so Bookmarks or View, etc.], the text is blending with the white highlight so I cannot see anything.

It looks like a bug?

Thanks,
Later.

It's not a bug, that's just the theme's colours. If you want a theme that uses menubaritemstyle=1, you'll need to use appropriate colours to make it work properly. You can't just take existing themes and change that and expect them to automatically suit the button style.

See if you get any error messages on stderr (or anything interesting on stdout).

here's what i get from stderr with ./configure:
/bin/sh: /home/karsten/downloads/gnome: No such file or directory (i think that's just a path remmnant from doing a jhbuild)
configure: WARNING: `missing' script is too old or missing
cat: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf: No such file or directory
cat: /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf: No such file or directory

from make;
./src/rezlooks_draw.c:109:2: warning: #warning seems to be very slow in scrollbar_stepper

and from make install there was nothing.

thanks

Sorry, but I don't have access to a Fedora box, and the guy who normally does my Fedora packaging has a problem with his machine, and so he can't get the FC5 rpm out for a few days. If anyone else wants to give me an FC5 rpm, then email me. In the meantime, you can always install it via the source.

Did you make drag handles invisible? Intentionally or by accident? I mean the ones that are for example at the left end of the taskbar and notification area and at the border of resizable panes.

Yes, for now they're invisible. They'll be back (and slightly different) in 0.6.
