There are three Nimbus themes in the package: Nimbus, Dark Nimbus and Light Nimbus. And they are not one after another in the theme's list. Are you sure?

It seems that the main OpenSUSE's Build service repository is out. Fortunately, I found a working up-to-date mirror repository and the links are now fixed and working.

Please, define "compact". Because I can't find anything unnecessary in this theme.

Here is a link to what would be considered compact theme :http://gnome-look.org/content/search.php

I prefer less space wasted in menus or nautilus layout . I think gnome apps like Rhythmbox waste way to much space .

Currently my favorite is Elementary compact theme . Here is a screenshot :

I really like Nimbus theme, it's colour scheme and all the widgets and buttons , but i find it little too bulky .

I think this kind of requests must be send to the developers of Nimbus theme. I'm just a packager.

Just came across this theme here. Nimbus is such an easy theme to install, why do you need to do all that for Ubuntu? I thought ubu was meant to be easy.

hi together,

I have found an upgraded Repository for you.

It is here:
https://launchpad.net/~merlwiz79/+archive/nimbus

Klick on "Details about this ppa" to see the new lines to add into your soures.list.

That meens the following steps:
open a Terminal and type: sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list and enter your password.

Then your sources-list will appeare.

There, scroll completely down until you see the line with the nimbus-ppa with the ending: jaunty main. Delete this line from your sources-list. Then this line will be empty.
Then type: deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/merlwiz79/nimbus/ubuntu karmic main. Then enter a new line and type:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/merlwiz79/nimbus/ubuntu karmic main.

Then go to the button "save" in the Top-Menuline of your sources-list to save these changes.

Then close your sources-list and go back to your Terminal.

There type the following: sudo apt-get update and let it run through completely. Then repete this with this command: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. Let this run through completely again. This will download the new version of this ppa including theme, gtk2-engines-nimbus andthe icons. Then this will be installed. Before it will be asked, if you want to install these changes. Confirm this with typing Y for yes.

When installation has completed, you can close your Terminal and enyoy the new version fo the nimbus-theme including the new gtk2-ngine.

Greetings

hey together,

I have tested the new gtk2-engines-nimbus, which are available on http://launchpad.net.

But I found, that this one is pretty buggy and only causes collission-errors between the icontheme itself and the new gtk2-engines-nimbus.

So the soluton is only, to use the one from Jaunty. And there is a good tutorial, how to install this nice theme in ubuntu. The tutorial can be found here:
http://www.ramoonus.nl/2009/08/02/howto-install-the-nimbus-theme-in-ubuntu/comment-page-1/

Try this, and everything will run well. I have also posted about the problem with this new gtk-engine. I hope, this will be fixed and I have also written a personal message to the author of this ppa. (he has a profil under the same name here:
http://www.linuxmint-art.org/content/show.php/Nimbus+GTK2+engine+(debian+packages+PPA)?content=97717

So I hope, that this error will be fixed somewhen. For this time, follow the instruction on the Link in this post to the tutorial

Greetings

So I take it no one intends to make this available for Fedora? As posted earlier this site is not distro specific. I do like the way this theme looks in the screens and am disappointed that I cannot try it out. If I were more knowledgeable about building it I would do it however I haven't gotten that far yet.

I've left the src-rpm for anybody can package it for fedora, redhat or suse.
By the way, you can install it with the rpm of mandriva i think you don't have any problem.
Also, you can download the source file with .tar.gz and install it with:
./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install (like root)
