Rezlooks GTK Engine

GTK2 Themes

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.

Yup, that looks fugly. Do you have a .gtkrc-2.0 file in your home directory? If so, try renaming that file and then restarting X. Also, do you have that problem with all Rezlooks themes or just the Rezlooks-human one?

I've made a pkgbuild for archlinux. It can be found at the aur searching 'rezlooks'.

Cimi put rezlooks in his overlay, so you can just enable it in your /etc/pacman.conf to be able to pacman -S rezlooks.

This is the best alternative engine theme ever! I'm also on the Ubuntu-Art mailing list, I am suggesting that they use this theme for a lite option instead of Mist or Smooth.

I even released a package of additional themes for this engine, so you'd better check it out!

will straighten out the Entry and focus on your GtkCombo

At first, I was dissapointed that this was not like your square hack of clearlooks. Which I'd still like to see as it's own engine named Rezlooks, so people can easily change between them. But now, I like where this is going and what you have done with the buttons. Do you plan to unify the other widgets (scrollbars etc..) to match? Then separate it with its own name, since it's not much related anymore?

Good work!
Thank you!

Umm... I wasn't aware that there was a problem with the entry and focus in GtkCombo ;)

Also, if you match the button bg[NORMAL] colour and the scrollbar colour in your theme, they will look the same, so a unified look is already there, sort of. I'm going to make the sliders match too for the next release. And this is going to keep being called rezlooks, since this is what my earlier hack on the clearlooks engine was aspiring to. And sorry, I'm not going to package that old hack up as a seperate engine, it really was a very dirty hack.

yes, the x and ythickness must be 3

also the bg[ACTIVE] evolution-hack color in the graphite theme is still blue.

Since you stated 'sort of' you know that's not the same. I know how to get the color, it is the design I was referring to. Glad to here you are going to make the scrollbar (and steppers?) flat with the light inside border.

What about the radio button? The round, glossy, ball just doesn't fit, IMO.

The check could be something else like maybe a slash?...to continue in the retro feel.

I tried rezlooks 0.3, 0.3.1 and 0.4. It works fine except Firefox and Thunderbird. The text inside the menu bars is black instead of white.

That's because firefox doesn't actually use gtk widgets properly. Any other browser (galeon, epiphany, etc) work fine. You can fix this by editing your ~/.mozilla/firefox//chrome/userChrome.css file and adding the following:

#file-menu, #edit-menu, #view-menu, #go-menu, #bookmarks-menu, #tools-menu, #helpMenu {
color: white !important;
}

I would like to run 0.3, 0.31, and 0.4 side by side. I renamed librezlooks.la(so) to librezlooks_old.la(so), installed the new engine, ran ldconfig, made a copy of the gtk theme and in the old one i changed the line engine rezlooks to rezlooks_old, but it doesnt work.

hints?

What font are you using in the screenshots? I've seen it around, but haven't been able to find the name.

The titlebars are DejaVu Sans, the GTK font is Trebuchet MS, the code font is DejaVu Sans Mono.

Looks like Bitstream Vera Sans to me. Although it might be DejaVu Sans, which is basically the Bitstream Vera fonts with better UTF8 support.

I use openbox, not metacity. I have zero idea how theming metacity works. If you want a metacity theme like that, you'll have to make one yourself ;)
