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.

FEATURE REQUESTS and/or BUG REPORTS ALWAYS WELCOME HERE

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.

In the baige themes, could you change the blue slider to some warm color? Because the blue doesn't go with Ubuntu's brown theme.

If you want to change the slider colour and release it as a new theme then go right ahead.

Hi. I relly like your theme, but right now I'm on OSX ;(
Can you please tell me the name of the font you used?

Where can I get it? :D It's great! :D

Thank you.

The font is Trebuchet MS, which is a Microsoft font I believe. It might be one of the standard ms ones that you can grab from a windows installation.

the rendering of the buttons lacks in my opinion... I think that the white line between button's bg and button's border is very ugly... and second I think the button's border have to be more contrasted (just a little bit more).

Ahh well, tough I'm afraid - I like the light "inner border" between the button's background colour and main border, and I'm not going to make the button borders contrast more because I prefer it like this. I make themes to please myself and nobody else, I release them in case somebody has similar tastes to me. If you don't then that's fine - but don't expect me to change my stuff for you ;)

I did it by taking the clearlooks cairo code and hacking on it. My old site went down because my host went down, I have a new one now.

Rezza - You make some cool stuff man! Thanks for all of it. I can't seem to get this gtk engine to work on Debian Sid, the plain old clearlooks one works, I haven't spent too much time hacking around with it yet though. I love your rezlooks openbox theme! priyank, I know there's a rezlooks openbox theme availabe at: http://www.boxwhore.org/modules/wfdownloads/singlefile.php?cid=3&lid=262
I think the one in the screenshot is different though. Thanks again Rezza for making my desktop look beautiful!

I don't know if this is something devel did to ubuntulooks or gdm to fix it, just that peoplpe do not seem to have the problem anymore. Since they are both cairo and I think clearlooks-cairo had the same issue, I just thought I would mention it in hopes of finding out why one engine does it and another does not.
