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.

This doesn't need clearlooks at all. I think it'll need a fairly recent libcairo thought.

Ha, sorry no I'm gonna stick with the cairo version because that's where I think gtk themes are all going to be heading.

And when you say you can't get it to work, what exactly is the problem? Does the ./configure fail? Does it fail to build? What errors do you get? What version of cairo do you have installed?

no it installs fine but when i apply one of the themes i get the old default hard edge theme, u know, the one that looks a bit like windows classic

not sure what cairo lib u mean but i have libcairo2 1.0.4-0ubuntu1

When you configured it, did you use --prefix=/usr? Because gtk is awfully fussy about locations... please try it with that.

Hmm, not sure why it's not working then. I have cairo 1.1.6 on my machine, it works great. I'm stumped I'm afraid.

Question: can you use the cairo-based clearlooks from gnome CVS? If so then I have screwed up somewhere...
