GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Score 74%

Downloads:  44791
Submitted:  Dec 29 2010
Updated:  Jan 12 2011


This theme is a collaboration between me and Ceebeebg whose mock up was the initial inspiration behind Atolm:

You will need the murrine, pixbuf and equinox gtk engines to use this theme. The AwOken icon theme is also highly recommended as is Nautilus Elementary.

Installation :


Make sure you have uninstalled any older versions of the theme before installing via ppa. For good measure type on a terminal :

rm -R ~/.themes/Atolm

to install the Equinox gtk engine (provided by Tiheum) :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tiheum/equinox
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gtk2-engines-equinox

to install Atolm :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nikount/orta-desktop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install atolm-theme

to install the Atolm xfwm4 decorators :

sudo apt-get install atolm-xfwm4-decorators

to install the Atolm emerald decorator :

sudo apt-get install atolm-emerald-decorators

Manual Installation :

just extract the contents of the zip file somewhere and drag and drop the Atolm.tar.gz and Atolm-Squared.tar.gz to the Appearance Preferences window (again, make sure you have uninstalled any previous version first). You can also install the emerald theme via the Emerald Theme Manager.

Customization :

If you prefer the old tabs, edit the gtkrc file (found inside ~/.themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ or /usr/share/themes/Atolm/gtk-2.0/ if you have installed via ppa) and replace the line :
include "Styles/tabs1.rc"
with this:
include "Styles/tabs.rc"

If you don't use Nautilus Elementary, edit the gtkrc and make this line:
include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"
look like this:
#include "Apps/nautilus-elementary.rc"

OpenOffice and most other Gtk apps now have a different base and text color than the rest of the theme. This is unavoidable if you want to have a usable OpenOffice. If you want to have a unified look, you can make all Gtk apps follow the same settings by setting the Input Boxes background color to 5C5C5C and the Input Boxes text color to ECECEC.

Thanks :

I would like to thank my partner in crime, MonkeyMagico, JurialMunkey for his valuable feedback and advice, and all of you that keep supporting my work

 I can't get it to show either.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 having followed all directions and double checked that the engines where installed, I can't get it to work either -- I have the same problem as slaykristian.

I've run through the tips you gave him, but it didn't have and effect. Help is much appreciated -- I really like the preview of the theme, and would love to get it to work.

Please let me know if there is any information I can provide that will facilitate things.

Kind regards,

Since you are on 10.04 you probably need a newer version of murrine as well.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:murrine-daily/ppa
and update murrine, this should do the trick.

in thunderbird ( http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/9/selection001d.png/ ) the email headers show like in the screenshot. one by one lines are very dark in background so that the text becomes almost unreadable.

anyone knows which file do i have to edit to specify a lighter gray for the second color?

(the "detailed list" view in thunar uses another set of colors and doesnt have this problem..)

I have had the same problem/complaint. I have tried a few times to edit Thunderbird's userChrome.css file to achieve acceptable formatting, but have never been successful... Would you mind posting the specific code you used for yours, and the version of Thunderbird you are running?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Your PPA goes in just fine but wont update for 12.04. I would love to check out your work but can't because I can't download it from the PPA.
