GTK 2.x Theme/Style

Latest Update :
28/10/2010 v1.6.0 . This update should have come six months ago, unfortunately at that time i had abandoned Gnome in favor of the more modern (and buggy as i was about to find out) KDE. Anyway, this is mainly a bug fix release, so many long standing problems should now be fixed.

Btw, there is a bug with the gtk-window-decorator that sometimes causes the Azel New menu button to be rendered incorrectly, i am aware of it but can't do much about it.

Description :
This theme looks best with the Faenza-Dark icon theme. It's also designed to work with or without the globalmenu hack (see instructions).

Instructions :

  • Extract the archive, go to the gtk folder and install Azel, Azel Original and Azel New through the theme manager.

  • If you prefer the gnome standard button placement use the Azel window border. If you prefer buttons on the left (as in the screenshot) use the Azel Original window border and go to the next step. The Azel New decorator works as well for both layouts.

  • If you have selected the Azel Original window border , open gconf-editor, go to apps->metacity-> general and change the button_layout to
    close,maximize,minimize:menu .

  • If you are using compiz , open gconf-editor, go to apps->gwd and set metacity_theme_opacity to 1 . Then, go to apps->compiz->plugins->decoration->allscreens->options
    and set shadow_opacity to 0.85 , shadow_radius to 8.5 , shadow_x_offset to 0 and shadow_y_offset to 4 .

  • If you prefer emerald to metacity/gtk-window-decorator , go to the emerald folder and install the themes . You can also look here http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=78145 for decorators that have the buttons on the right side.

  • If you are using globalmenu, go to your themes directory and browse inside Azel/gtk-2.0/. Open the file gtkrc and scroll down near the bottom till you find the line 'include "tweaks-no-globalmenu.rc"' (without the quotes). Comment out (put a # symbol in front of) that line, uncomment (remove the # from) the '#include "tweaks-globalmenu.rc" line and reload the theme.

  • If you prefer the old silver panel, go to your themes directory and browse inside Azel/gtk-2.0/. Open the file gtkrc and scroll down near the bottom till you find the line 'include "panelblack.rc"' (without the quotes). Comment out (put a # symbol in front of) that line, uncomment (remove the # from) the '#include "panel.rc"' line and reload the theme.

  • If you are using Ubuntu Karmic x64 and have problems with thunar and huge toolbars, use the included deb or follow the included instructions to compile a fixed version yourself.

  • If you are using firefox just use Midori :P . Just kidding ;) . Go to the firefox folder and into ff2 if you are using firefox2 or ff3 for firefox3. In case you are using the hidemenubar extension, there is also the Azel-no-menubar theme included.

  • If you are using Mplayer , extract the contents of the Azel-mplayer archive into ~/.mplayer/skins .

  • Changelog:

  • Panel code rewritten from scratch.

  • Default button states added.

  • Shadow margins fixed.

  • Text color on progressbars fixed.

  • Better progressbars in treeviews.

  • Firefox no longer needs a skin.

  • Chromium frame color fixed.

  • Changed default icons to Faenza-Dark.

  • Support for Nautilus-Elementary.

  • LicenseGPL

     what about a black version?

    One of the overall best designed theme, in my opinion: original, clean and nice.. very nice!
    I like this theme but generally spoken I always prefer dark themes, so I would like to know if you've ever thought to make a dark version of Azel!

    What do you think about?

    Anyway keep up this project.. it will give you a lot of satisfaction!!

    I dont know if its like this in Ubuntu but in Fedora my notification is grey not black like the rest of the gnome panel. Is there a way I can change this?

    Love the theme btw. Great work.

    I have rewritten the panel code from scratch, this should fix most of the distro specific problems so expect an update in the next few days.

    When I right click on an icon, or open a menu, I can't see every entries unless I select them.
    Here a screenshot to be more understandable :

    Hope it could be fixed.

    I managed to fix the problem by deleting the file Menu.png in the directory Menu-Menubar

    maybe you should just have edited gtkrc file to use panel.rc instead of panelblack.rc

    kind regards mikedk

    looks like they've done something so you cant install via files in firefox, so maybe you should make a fix for the firefox themes.

    kind regards mikedk

     Not a surprise

    This is very nice and cool theme. What I like is that it's comprehensive. You offer a complete pack, not just Emerald skin or wallpaper. You also provide instructions how to apply which will please beginners. I guess this is important part of propagating Linux.

    Overall downloads over 49k - what a surprise, isn't it? ;)

    Good job mate, keep it up!

    Thinking doesn't hurt.

    Actually, as of this moment overall downloads are exactly 31,744 (the DeviantArt counter doesn't lie) :P. Gnome-look probably counts the clicks to the icon theme and alternative decorator links.

    It's also another fact that i haven't supported Azel as much as i should. This update came exactly one year after the previous one, and there were some serious bugs in need of fixing for all this time.

    Still, i appreciate your kind words and i will try to provide better support to my users from now on.

    I wouldn't say it's history, imetal is history (has been for a long time actually since i never really liked it :P), Azel i will continue to support with bug fixes when necessary.

    As for Orta, she is the child of Azel in many ways (color scheme, soft lines, deep shadows etc), so i hope she will become a worthy successor.
