Equinox GTK Engine

Equinox GTK Engine

Downloads:  231174
Submitted:  Mar 20 2010
Updated:  Apr 27 2011


A heavily modified version of the beautiful Aurora engine (1.4). Thanks to his author.

IMPORTANT! Since version 1.40, the file below contains only the engine source. You can download themes (both GTK and Metacity) from the second and third links :
- The five Equinox Evolution themes are new offical ones and will get some updates in the future. Only these themes are now included in the theme package available from the Launchpad PPA
- The original themes are no longer maintained (but still usable).

Engine installation

First of all, make sure you have installed the GTK+ library development files (libgtk2.0-dev on Debian/Ubuntu, gtk2-devel on Fedora) with your favourite package manager.

Then to compile the Equinox engine, extract the corresponding archive in your home folder. In the new directory, run the following commands:
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-animation

On Fedora 64 bits (and perhaps other distribs), compilation don't work with the options above. You must run:
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 --enable-animation

Finally, run this command as root:
make install

Themes installation

To install the themes, extract the content of the other archive in your ~/.themes.

You can easily change the colour used for selected items or tooltips in Appearance preferences.

To fix the issue with the text of selected menu items in Firefox and Thunderbird, copy the userChrome.css in both ~/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/ and ~/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxx.default/chrome/

To use the Equinox Evolution theme with Chromium or Google Chrome, open the browser and drag the CRX file (provided in the themes archive) into the address bar. In applications options, don't forget to enable the display of Metacity borders.

Icon theme
A (still uncomplete) version of Faenza icon theme is now available. Follow the link a the bottom of this page.

 Equinox Theme + Light Panels?

 by darkbolt on: Jul 2 2010
Score 50%

First, I'd like to say I absolutely love the engine, it's some great work!

I'd like to see the plain equinox theme with gnome panel being light. As it stands, I'm using the elementary icon set, and it doesn't mesh well with a dark panel

Thanks for your work, and keep it up!

I've actually accomplished this, by switching out the panel_bg image with the one from the light theme, as well as the code from the light section under the panel comments, to the gnome specific ones. Still needed a bit of tweaking for the font colors, but I have something I'm happy enough with.

 slackware txz and engine name

hi man,
how are you?

First of all my compliments for your nice engine: even if I have not discovered all it power I'm loving it every day a little bit more: so, thank you for your engine and much of all thanks for sharing! Share means love, to me..

But go on.. Since I start using Linux I installed on my notebook the powerful Slackware Linux; and from that day IO never changed distro! Slackware is all you want in an OS.. but, anyway, I don't want to make here propaganda :)
I'm writing yo tell you that I'm packaging your Equinox GTK Engine for my beloved Slackware: something similar to deb or rpm (deb: Debian e related; rpm for Red Hat), in two words.
It would be great if you would link the package here between others..

I think that that's all, for now.. I will let you know the link as soon as you will reply to me: the package is ready, I'm uploading it here and on DA.. OK?

Uhhhh.. another question, just for my big big big curiosity: what's the origin of the Equinox name? I mean: why Equinox?
I'm very curious about that, but if you don't want to tell us tit meaning, we will understand.. ;)

OK, now that's really all!
Hoping to hear you soon,
I wish you a nice day

Thanks for your packages: you made one of my friend happy ;)

At the beginning, i've planned to develop two GTK themes for this engine: Spring (light and fresh) and Fall (brown, like Human). For this reason, i've named my engine Equinox. But, it was a few years ago...

Could you change the buttons layout also for the left position in metacity?

For the moment, I'll keep the default layout for others distros. The Lucid layout is already available with Equinox Radient and Equinox Ambiant themes and I don't want to have too much themes to maintain (it's a lot of work). But i'll keep an eye on Maverick to see what they do with windicators...
