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.

It's perfect! It fixed everything I disliked about Clearlooks. (Such as gradients, rounded things, 3d buttons, etc.)

It looks great! Only a few problems with it.

* A top placed panel has a ugly black line that looks like it doesn't belong there.
* A progressbar that pulses misses a left darker border on the "pulse"
* Progressbars in NetworkManager applet looks weird.

I made a screenshot of all these problems here: http://flickr.com/photos/32503066@N00/145864078/

Hope these get fixed.

Hmm, I'll see if I can work out what's going on there. What app are you using to create the pulsing progress bar?

Report

miffe

It's a small python program I wrote. Requires pygtk.

import gtk
w = gtk.Window()
w.connect( "delete-event", gtk.main_quit )
w.set_border_width( 5 )

p = gtk.ProgressBar()
p.pulse()
w.add( p )

w.show_all()

p.pulse()

gtk.main()

OK, thanks. I fixed the pulse problem, not sure about the network applet problem, I don't have it installed (and it's not available as an applet to add to the panel), and I haven't fixed the panel problem - for now it might be better to set the panel to use a solid colour instead of the theme.

Very nice theme. Just letting you know that it works just fine using the latest public release of Cairo 1.0.4.

Another person who is getting sick of round corners :)

It's true!!! I love squared corners and rezlooks is working so fine... but the performance are not so better than pixmap themes (benchmark gives me 22 seconds for rezlooks with tempura colors, 23seconds for tempura)

I dont see any performance difference either. The good thing about source based themes is they are much more dynamic. Pixmap themes are restricted on a lot of levels, especially when it comes to resizing and working nicely in a myriad of situations.

They are however much easier to work with and alter, at least for graphical people, perhaps not coders.

Theming in Linux really needs to get better and easier to do. It has an endless amount of potiental, yet only utilizes a small portion of that.
