Description:

Shiki-Colors mixes the elegance of a dark theme with the usability of a light theme, resulting in a hybrid theme. Shiki is designed to be fast and stable.

There is a Clearlooks version for out-of-the-box compatibility with most distros and a Murrine version for eyecandy and speed.

There are 7 color variations (Orange, Blue, Green, Purple, Red, Chocolate, Pink). A matching set of Icons, Wallpapers and GDM themes can also be downloaded separately from gnome-look or at the gnome-colors project page.

You can edit the theme's source (the gtkrc files) for further customization, which is all too easy due to the included instructions.

Must read or clowns will eat you:
* The Murrine version will only work with Murrine 0.90.3 or newer. Yes, you will need to upgrade unless you're using Ubuntu Jaunty.

* The borders are very thin, and titlebars/menubars are unified because of "LOL, ELEGANCE". If you have any difficulty resizing windows, try the included alternate metacity with thicker borders.

* In Ubuntu, for themes (installed through appearance preferences) to be able to theme applications in admin mode, you must type in a terminal:
sudo ln -s ~/.themes /root && sudo ln -s ~/.icons /root

Fedora users can get an installable package of Murrine 0.90.3 (x86) here until is not available in release section:
http://files.getdropbox.com/u/1529612/gtk-murrine-engine-0.90.3-1.fc12.i586.rpm

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install shiki-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* To fix minor Firefox 3 bugs in Shiki-Colors, install the Stylish add-on and go here (or install the included userChrome.css file following the instructions in README):
http://userstyles.org/styles/10822

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.

He means a theme for Google Chrome, not just recoloring of the default theme.

Yes, seem you are really "open minded" person and the greatest Linux hacker ever. Thank you very much for being so kind to teach us dumbnubs (or how you call me and others who have some questions?). What could we know about the Chrome and Cromium if not such persons like you. You are right. I should not be offended if you call me "dumbnub" and "n00b", cause that is so kind from you. Yes, I'm very ubusive person. But, be so kind (ooh, great master of Linux) and forgive as dumnubs.

Such "open minded" persons" like you make me to hate Linux soon. Thank you very much.

Look here. I get tired from such comments. No one have the right to call me nub, dumbnub, noob or something like that. Or maybe you think that this is not abusive and offensive? I've tolled him several times to be polite. Now you decide to teach me the politeness? Very strange people are here.

OKAY I will give u a freebie alexander because I'm a fair person (unlike you who is impolite and abusive)

Chromium - Open source project that aims to deliver a fast and feature rich internet browser.

Google Chrome - a browser BASED on Chromium which has a different development cycle than Chromium.

perfectska04 who was very kind (again unlike u) provided support for CHROMIUM. If google picks up the development revision where the purple theme bug is fixed is completely up to google.

god why do I *ever* help these random dumbnubs is beyond me ...

Are you stupid? I'm talking about Chrome which is available for Linux, not Chromium.

What actually was added to gtkrc? I'm trying to make some changes in displaying colors in Chromium, but have no luck :/

Given the rounded top windows decoration, it would seem most fitting that the tabs should be rounded too and, arguably, the the scroll bars as well. I love Shiki but the comletely rectangular, sharp-cornered tabs look out of place.

With Shiki-Colors, various widget outlines in OOo look very bold:

This does not happen with other themes like Clearlooks:

It's an OpenOffice bug.

Apparently they use the color of the menus for those outlines. The same behavior occurs with Dust, NewWave Dark Menus, Opensuse's Sonar, etc...

There's nothing I can do from this end, and Openoffice problems are usually seen with many themes because it's not a native GTK application.

P.S. The bold outlines happen with both Shiki-Colors murrine and clearlooks versions.

First of all, congratulations on the work you've done.
And now,my question...Shiki-human will be modified according to the new brown color of karmic?

Report

Shiki-Dust has not the same color of Human-Karmic,is a more lighter brown.

You can simply change the selected background color in Appearance preferences to the desired color. If you'd like a matching icon set for that shade of brown, you can compile gnome-colors from source and get it.

As for the defaults, there's already Shiki-Dust, which is warm and brown. It doesn't have the same shade of brown as the new Human, but why should it? It's not like both themes can be used at the same time, so it shouldn't matter or create any inconsistency.

It was just a curiosity about the future release of Shiki, if ever there will be.
Thanks for the reply.

Hi,

Cool theme! However my only gripe is that it takes several clicks to open the menu sometimes. Other than that, cool theme!

I have not experienced this issue. In theory, the theme (or icons) should not have any relevance when it comes to mouse clicking or the clickable area of the menu icon applets.

It might help if you could add a screenshot, a more detailed summary - or double check if the same behavior occurs under another theme (which might indicate that the problem lies elsewhere).
